Getting Bigger

I am now 5 months old. The other day my Mum and Dad took me to Little Explorers Children's Centre to get weighed - they do that on Tuesdays. I weigh 13lb 13oz. This means I am growing normally.

Lots of things are changing. I am trying something called 'solid food'. This is quite sweet stuff in a bowl. I also have rice and porridge sometimes. My favourite stuff is bananas.

My hair is growing, and changing colour.
Mum and Dad can't decide whether I'm going to be blonde or brown. I guess we'll wait and see.
Mum and Dad are having me Christened (whatever that means) at a big church in town soon. Mum has got me a pretty dress to wear. There's going to be a party afterwards which means I  will get lots of cuddles.

I am developing quite the personality. Mum and Dad say I'm hilarious. I think they are hilarious.

 Daddy makes me laugh with silly faces and noises.

I love my Dad - I cry when he goes to work. Not sure about Jammie Dodgers though.

I have learned how to blow bubbles and make raspberry noises and babble. I sometimes lie on my jungle gym play mat and talk to the animals on there. I don't know if they understand.

This is Sally Bear.

She is my little guard dog. I think she's funny. She makes me laugh a lot. She tries to lick me.

And sometimes my big sister Amy comes over and gives me cuddles. She's lovely.

Well, that's all the news. See you later!

I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles

Well, I am now 19 weeks old (can it really be that long?) and I am progressing in leaps and bounds. I am making lots of word-like sounds and babbles and Daddy keeps shooting lots of videos to document my progress.

I am constantly discovering new things. For a few weeks now my hands and fingers have fascinated me and I even found my thumb, which occasionally I'll have a bit of a suck on. I also like to suck on my sleeves, which annoys Mummy a lot! I've also discovered that I can wiggle my tongue around and stick it out at people, which is a hoot! The other night I discovered how to blow bubbles and make what Dad calls 'raspberry sounds', whatever that means.

Another new development is food. Daddy and Mummy have been giving me some porridge which they make with my milk,

and some lovely fruity puree thingies which I was a bit unsure about at first, but now I am getting used to the flavours.

I'm growing. I've already outgrown a few outfits but Mum has loads more for me to wear over the coming months. And I just found out I am going to get something called 'Christened' which means I can give that nice Mr. Hammond the vicar another cuddle. Mum and Dad are busy inviting something Daddy calls 'the world and his wife'. Daddy says a lot of stuff I don't get, but he always makes me smile and laugh because he has such a funny face!

P.S. By the way folks, I currently have a cold, which explains the heavy breathing in the vids.--Dad
