Now hurtling towards the big first birthday event, Jessica’s progress is coming along in leaps and bounds. She’s now clapping, babbling for extended periods, reaching out for toys, able to sit upright for more than a minute or two, can finally roll over from her tummy to her back, and follows things with her head and eyes once she has gained a focus on them – like when you place down a yummy bottle of formula for example!

Oh yes, and the bottom two teeth are also growing out properly now!

Another big first that takes place this coming Monday will be her first swimming lesson with Chantelle and the rest of the girls from the Mamas Club, not to mention the upcoming baby gym sessions Chantelle has booked in Bellville.

And of course, how could I not end this post without a picture of the main girl herself, happily playing with the paper bag her ever so cute little swimming nappy came in, instead of the multitude of toys around her! Sigh, it’s always the simple things in life that are best… ;)

(P.S. in case you were wondering, being bare naked always backfires for us. She peed on the blanket, not once, but twice during this Chantelle photo shoot session!)
