New reading material

My new reading material...

Her new reading material...

We have these black and white books and mobiles around the house now because she's fascinated by the images. As she has her nappy changed at the changing unit, for example, she will reach out with her hand towards images such as these. Sometimes the images are arresting enough to stop her from thrashing around as I try and dress her. Her captivation bears out the research that babies reflexively prefer to look at high-contrast edges and patterns - particularly white on black or black on white.

I am typing this while Little P sleeps. I've also managed to complete our Ocado order. The three of us went out to the local shops today. Little P was alert and observing what she could with the short range vision of a two week old. When she came back she was hungry and then very sleepy. M is playing Sim City on the computer upstairs. We are much more energetic today as Little P has slept well over the last day and night. More on this later.

Only two weeks and she's already hard to dress? My, she's really pushing the envelope!
