Goodness, where did this month go?!
Dear Sophie, you continue to show more and more of your personality. This month has seen you start to really interact with your world and wanting to do more. You still aren’t that keen on rolling – you have done it, but you would rather be sitting or holding our hands to stand up and see more than you can while laying on the ground. We picked up a high chair for you and you sit in it a couple of times a day now playing with toys or watching what everyone else is up to.
You have started eating a bit more “real food” and you are loving the pureed apple and porridge we have introduced you to so far. You have also found your voice, almost to our dismay, with your favourite sound being a very loud, high shriek. At least it seems to be a happy noise most of the time. You continue to be our good sleeping, happy, smiley little girl.
Dear Emily, another amazing month for you. Your energy levels continue to increase and you are definitely keeping us on our toes as you test your capabilities and boundaries. We spend weekends working out ways to tire you out and as a result we get out a lot more ourselves and are exploring more parks and playgrounds in the area. Over Easter your interest in fountains finally surpassed your fear of getting wet from them and you ended up soaked but incredibly happy. Of course this was the one time we forgot to bring a change of clothes for you!
You are slowly adding more words to your vocabulary, still not a lot of words there but it’s really starting to pick up. Recently you have added “hi”, “shhh” and “baby” and your pronunciation is getting clearer all the time. We have changed up your breakfast a few times lately to try and get enough into you and have finally settled on giving you porridge – and most days you eat as much as dad! You continue to be a funny, affectionate little girl and dote on your little sister.
Love you both lots and lots and lots xoxoxoxo
