Saturday, 20 July 2013: One Hundred and Ten Days Old.
Ayla’s started to enter the phase where everything she touches goes straight in her mouth.
And I mean everything; fingers (hers and ours), toys, clothes, bibs, wraps, the cat… Nah, not really the cat but it won’t be long!
So long as Ayla can get her chubby little hands wrapped around something, it’s doomed… It’ll be chewed, sucked and licked until its soaking wet and soggy.
As gross as it sounds its pretty amazing to watch her brain working.
As she sits there, sucking on a blanket, I can see her registering what it feels like, how it tastes, how it changes in her mouth, and all that information is stored away in her amazing sponge of a brain.
