5 month Clementine

Monday, October 14, 2013

Our Clementine turned 5 months old last week. My husband says that even though he's always loved her, he loves her even more now that her personality is showing more and more. She is a funny little cherub, that's for sure. While we were travelling, people would always remark on how happy and friendly she is. She smiles at everyone, will let anyone hold her and just generally makes herself loved wherever she goes.

In this last month she's become way more dexterous. She's playing with toys, and grabbing everything she can to bring to her mouth for a taste. This sometimes includes our faces, which she likes to grab affectionately. It also includes her books, which I am always trying to read to her and she is always trying to eat. She's also rolling like a pro. She's been rolling for a while but she's totally mastered it over the last fortnight. In fact, she won't stay put now!

Over the last few days we've started the solids adventure. I would have liked to wait longer, but being the wee babe that she is, we've been encouraged to push the solid food to get her weight up. Clementine has tried runny egg yolk, mashed avocado and homemade applesauce (all mixed with a little breast milk). So far, she only likes the egg yolk. But watching her facial expressions as she tries a new food is absolutely priceless. We love her so!


  1. Oh she is delicious! Love those colours as well, they seem so alive. Have loved stumbling across your blog and reading of your latest adventures; you've reignited my wanderlust! Cass x
