Tuesday, 8 October 2013: One Hundred and Ninety Days Old.
Ayla sent her first tweet today.
She didn’t mean to of course, but she’s so fascinated with my phone that she’ll grab it at any chance she gets!
I always said I’d never use technology to entertain my babies, but I’m learning that its less a matter of choice and more an unavoidable part of modern childhood.
In the early days of Ayla I was vigilant in keeping my phone out of sight, but as Ayla grew so did her neck muscles and she began actively searching for the bright little screen in my right hand.
Now at six months old Ayla can not only hold my iPhone, she knows which side to put her fingers on to make the colours move.
Hence, the tweet.
It’s a cute little milestone but one that’s surprisingly missing from my baby books…
Get with the times publishers! First words are old school… First FB statuses are much more relevant.
