At the age of four-and-a-half months, Amelie has suddenly developed the ability to roll onto her side and turn ninety degrees in the cot, so that her head's against the wall and her feet are sticking out through the bars...

She's obviously read the Feng Shui book about sleeping with your head to the north.

But while Amelie's likely to wake up in the morning with a bruised head and cold feet, the good news is that we don't have to worry about her wetting the bed. At work yesterday we received a delivery of amitriptyline syrup which had leaked all over the inside of the box and covered it in fragrant stickiness. Amitriptyline's an anti-depressant, but the syrup's used to treat bedwetting in children, so I suppose a leak of stinking yellow fluid is quite appropriate. We spent yesterday cleaning it all up, and I was examining the salvaged bottles and sticky boxes before I left work tonight. I then returned home without washing my hands and immediately picked up Amelie. At which point she started sucking my thumb. Frankly I don't think I'll need to change her nappy before Sunday.

And as a bonus, now that she can move about on her own, it's only a matter of time before I can make a video like this...

I think I'll film it in the livving room.
