3 April: Today Phoebe discovered how to splash on purpose. Bath time just got much wetter. Fun though. ☔
4 April: Phoebe's latest noise is a click made with her tongue. All the time.
For dinner tonight Phoebe is eating potato cakes, pork slices and broccoli. Though actually she's so far ignored the broccoli.
And the pork is a bit tough to chew so she's mostly eating the potato cakes which are just the right amount of squishy.
Now attacking the broccoli by her usual method of peeling off strips and sucking them.
She also likes to grab the frilly bits and chew the stem.
5 April: Sunday afternoon.
6 April: Are the bluebells out yet anywhere near Cambridge?
7 April: #selfielapse happy Phoebe

Seven minutes of Phoebe.
Rob is learning to play the recorder.
9 April: Breakfast
A baby and her kazoo. Also, if you look closely, you can see her first tooth.
Mum skills: syringing out the correct dose of calpol while holding the wriggling and unhappy intended recipient of said medicine.
10 April: The weather is warmer and I feel like I've forgotten how to dress for sunny weather. This time last year I lived in dresses & leggings.
But dresses don't work for breastfeeding and I hate all my short sleeved . Shopping required.
Going out for the first time in the big girl seat on her buggy.
I could have sworn the person getting onto the bus after me asked for "A return ticket to the real world please." #Cambridge
14 April: This is what you're currently missing by being at work, daddy.
15 April: Phoebe in fabulously retro Little Bird dungarees.
Cucumber for the win!
20 April: Mummy in shades. Monkey in a sun hat.
Started an argument about 'chemicals' on a baby related Facebook group. This isn't going to end well, is it?
Someone posted this http://www.healthyfoodstar.com/this-powder-is-causing-cancer-in-10000-women/ …. I said the headline was highly inaccurate. Someone else said baby shampoo is full of carcinogens
Fear of chemicals makes me cross. You can make people scared of anything by invoking the c word.
21 April: Cot day two: getting to know the robot.
Shhh! Phoebe is napping. :-)
22 April: Blowing cross bubbly raspberries is probably not the most effective means of expressing one's displeasure. It is however very cute.
23 April: Fabulous tulips.
25 April: Woken up at 12, 4 and 6 when Phoebe decided it was morning. How did people survive babies before coffee?
27 April: Berry smeared baby.
28 April: How is my little person all smiley in the morning when she's been Howling McScreamybaby all night?
29 April: I'm being held captive by a minuscule dictator whose every whim I must interpret and satisfy or face her tiny squeaking wrath.Strain to grab favourite toy, succeed. Throw it out of your reach. Melt down until mummy rescues it. Repeat.
30 April: Spoon for breakfast.
The frustrated baby gets her hand on the cup she's been trying to reach for the last 5 mins, only for it to roll further out of her grasp.
Poor frustrated Phoebe. The sooner she can crawl, the better for her level of happiness. Though mummy's stress levels will increase. :-S
Baby got all the kazoos!
