I'm happy to say that Miss E has been a lot perkier today, but every time I turn my back she seems to have somehow managed to get hold of something I thought was out of her reach. She was lying in her cot while I was changing Mr A and when I turned around the picture book that is tied to her cot was on top of her. Then last night I was bathing Mr A while Miss E was kicking about in her cot and when I looked round she had managed to get the towel that was hanging over the end of the cot up to her mouth to suck on. I can think of three possible explanations:
- She's crawling when I'm not looking!! Of course she isn't (give her a break, she is only five months old after all)
- She can move things with her mind (this was Young Daddy's suggestion)
- She is stretching and twisting to pull things towards her. We are going to need to be more careful about stuff we leave within her reach such as hot drinks. I'm constantly amazed at how these babies always seem to be one step ahead of you!
I’m really excited to have been included in the latest Best of British Mummy Bloggers Carnival at Insomniac Mummy (a blogging carnival is where bloggers submit their best post to a nominated host, who picks out their favourites). It’s my first carnival and I’m looking forward to reading all the other posts that are on the roundup. I just wish I could take my laptop into the bath with me so I could read them there...
