Josephine's Monthly Portrait. Taken in her nursery on the 18th of every month.
On Wednesday, Josephine turned 3 months old. No longer a newborn. How quickly the time passes when you're having fun.
While we're still going to do a Monthly Portrait, we thought we'd revisit the below questions every three months to keep track of what Josephine's doing and liking and entertaining us with over the coming years. We have one of those baby journal things but I've got to be honest we're completely rubbish at remembering to fill it in and when we do, we've forgotten some of the little, but still just as special, details.
So here goes. And we got Papa full on involved in this post too. He says 'hello' by the way...
Likes: People smiling at her, food, having a bath with Papa, not wearing a nappy, being in our bed, funny noises, music, eating her hands, playing with her baby gym, lying on the floor where there's lots of room to kick her legs and flap her arms.
Dislikes: Not getting fed quickly enough, sitting down, falling asleep when there's lots going on, being still, Papa taking ages when getting her dressed.
What makes her smile more than anything: Any occasion when Mama and Papa are both entertaining her at the same time, whether it's when she's having a nappy change, when she's snuggled in our bed or when we both go to get her up in her morning. She flashes the biggest grin when our faces appear over the bars of her cot.
Favourite toys: Kurt the tiny knitted teddy, Bob the mouse with a rattle in his belly and Horace the giraffe.
Mama's favourite thing: Lying next to Phiney in our bed, snuggled under the duvet and chatting away with her. I can imagine us doing this forever more. And a group hug with all three of us is hard to beat.
Papa's favourite thing: Every weekday morning, when Nell brings Phiney back into the bedroom (because we're usually up way earlier than lucky old Papa!) to wake me up and have a few cuddles. The best way to start the day. Also my chats with her and seeing her smile. Oh, and her hair.
Career prediction: Musician. Seriously, the girl loves her music.
