Tomorrow, Tomoe will be 5 months old. Just one month to go until she’s half a year old!
This has been a busy week for her. She should be getting to the stage where she can sit up on her own. We’ve been trying to get her to do it, but she’s not completely successful. She leans forward too much, as her back and legs aren’t strong enough yet. But she should be able to do it soon.
She’s also been continuing her exploration with her hands. She grabs everything now. This past week, she’s finally started grabbing her feet. She does it a lot now!
She continues to enjoy rolling over onto her stomach. However, it’s pretty boring just laying there on her stomach, so she needs something to play with. So, we got her a play mat. She seems to enjoy the butterfly a lot.
Tomoe’s often trying to hold her bottle while she’s being fed, but she’s not very good at it. The larger glass bottles are too heavy for her. But she has a bottle with handles, and we’ve given it a try. It seems to be a success!
Tomoe really enjoys being talked to, and she’s been laughing so much. Just saying “hi” to her makes her smile. She may actually be recognising her own name now, as she does respond by looking at us when we say her name…sometimes.
I wonder what this month will hold for us.
