BRIGHT AS A BUTTON
CHARLOTTE’S favourite Jellycat toy, a fluffy puppy, is propped up on the chair beside her.
And the way she is looking at it, her entire face lit up with unbridled joy, shows she is a very bright baby indeed.
‘Charlotte is displaying lovely eye contact and engagement with her toy,’ says Dr Chicot. ‘Having a big brother will give her lots of opportunities for face-to-face smiling and chatting. Babies are hugely social beings and love to look at faces.’
Both photographs suggest she is above average in terms of development.
A Palace insider says she is an ‘alert, happy baby’.
‘She is chatted to a great deal by her brother, who is thrilled by her and shows his trains and toys to her at every opportunity.’
