Browsing through my blog archives today and looking at entries from August of 2006 when Bella was three months old, the age Sophia is now. I know that stages of development are such that it’s no surprise that babies of the same age are doing the same things, but it’s fun to wander down that memory lane. It’s also fun to see the differences.
I was delighted and thought it blog-worthy when Bella slept for five hours at a stretch. Last night Sophia slept for ten hours, which for her is hardly noteworthy.
Bella was sucking on her fingers and playing with her toes. Sophia is loving her thumb, which she sucks every chance she gets and beginning to grasp objects, bat at toys and reach out to touch my face, hands and arms.
Bella was holding her head up pretty well and we stuck her in the exersaucer for the first time. She was laughing and squawking. Sophia is likewise pretty good at head control and is laughing and squawking. I was thinking just yesterday that she might be ready to sit up on her own in an exersaucer or some such and maybe we should get one as she really doesn’t like the bouncy seat very much.
Funny coincidence. Then: our point and shoot camera was broken and I was taking some stills with the video camera. Now: our point and shoot camera is broken and we’re taking pictures with a camera Dom borrowed from a colleague.
