I live for the applause

I came back from work on Wednesday to discover that Busby had learnt to clap! Apparently my Mutti had been playing “pat-a-cake” with her during the day and she’d picked up the new skill as quickly as that!

Now, as soon as I start singing “If you’re happy and you know it” she starts clapping and looks very pleased with herself. She often gives herself a round of applause for noteworthy occurrences such as putting the small cup inside the big cup, and reaching the bath tub page in “Peepo” (her favourite page).

Busby is such a little character, and it’s amazing to see her grow and change so much in a matter of days.
