My little monkey, you are 5 months old already and mummy’s not quite sure where that time has gone but i can barely remember what my life was like without you in it. You are changing and growing before my eyes every single day and it makes me incredibly proud to see how far you’ve come in such a short space of time. 

You’ve given us lots more smiles this month, not windy smiles but real smiles and what beautiful ones they are too.I love the way your face lights up into a huge grin every time you see me or your daddy. The highlight of my day is first thing in the morning when i can hear you stirring in your room, you give a tiny ‘i’m awake’ cry and the minute i walk into the nursery and peer in to your cot, you give me the biggest smile possible and it just melts my heart every time.

You have really started to make and hold eye contact with people and seem to be a very social baby who loves attention and being around people. None more so than your big cousin Tia, you are the apple of her eye and i’m in no doubt that she’s yours. I just know you two are going to grow up to be the best of friends.

You stay awake for longer periods during the day now and have also begun to take interest in a few toys and objects, especially the hanging ones within easy reach on your bouncer and play gym.

You started teething this month and despite showing no interest in a dummy previously and against my better judgement, i’ve found it to be the only way of comforting and soothing you so as long as your happy, mummy’s happy.

This past month has seen you become more alert and interactive and i can’t wait to see what the next month will bring.

As ever Riley, keep happy, keep safe and keep healthy.

Love From Mummy xxx
