Last night after he’d read one bedtime story to her, Bella asked Dom to talk with her. And recounted the events of the last couple of days to him. He came out of her room with a sort of wistful look on his face. Nothing like a heart to heart with your daughter!
Sophie has started to laugh now. Real belly laughs. And to grab things. Last night as I was prepping dinner, she was sitting in her bouncy seat and the little cow-head thing started playing Old MacDonald. Thought Bella had pulled it and then heard her moving around in the other room. Knew Dom hadn’t done it as he was sitting at the table. I looked up and sure enough Sophie’s little hand was clamped on and she had this surprised look on her face as the music kept playing and playing. She’s also been grabbing a rattle with some deliberation, has grabbed a blanket and held it up to her face and has caressed my arm, all quite clearly not just random flailing.
