L turned five months old on her great-grandma's birthday in November. We, along with my mom, went to the zoo that day. Shboogoo was still two years old and could get in for free. It was L's first time at a zoo. I assume she liked seeing the animals. I do know she was really happy to be close to me in my friend's Baby Bjorn.
By about five months old, she had started to . . .
make smacking noises
grab things more deliberately
enjoy her toes
sit up by herself (I didn't have her practice much until a few days before she was 5 months old)
I love her!
