My little baby has become so inviting and responsive. She smiles when you talk to her, grins are getting wider and she talks to you using funny little sound. She makes aaaah, eeeeeeh and oooooh sounds. She coees, she gurgles she giggles (very rarely!)
When I hold her hands she tries to lift up her head and shoulders as if to help me pick her up. She loves to stand on my lap for a few seconds while wobbling like a jelly as her legs are not strong enough. H1a nd I would usually say 'My goodness girl, you are shaking like a leaf,' (copied from Skipper, the official leader of the Penguin Commandoes in Madagascar 2!) and H1 would laugh every time.
She has different cries for different wants. She has a 'feed me' cry, a 'FEED ME NOW!' cry, 'I want to sleep' cry, 'pick me up' cry and a very emphatic 'PICK ME UP NOW OR ELSE' cry.
H2 doesn't keep me up much in the night too. She wakes up at about 2 or 3 for a feed. Then maybe again at 4 or 5 and promptly falls asleep after getting her tummy full.
It's so fascinating to watch her now. She likes to sit in her bouncer than lying down. When she sits she can see her legs. She would gaze at them as if to say, 'What are those interesting things' and she would move them this way and that way while trying to grab them with her hands. She misses most of the time though as her hands swipe at them rather than aim.
It's soooooo exiting to watch my baby grow! I love my little girlies to bits!!
