"She’s started crawling, standing up and walking – I’ve got to have eyes in the back of my head," says Karen. Since the last episode baby Amelia has started to explore the world around her.

Dad has gone back to sea and he’s been sending Amelia videos everyday. You’ll melt when Amelia’s wee face lights up when she recognises her dad on Karen’s phone. And even though she can’t quite communicate herself, Karen knows Amelia understands –

"I can’t wait to hear her talk, I love her wee laughing voice – it’s just incredible."

Tori, Karen’s best friend, tells us about Karen and Amelia’s close bond – "They’ve got a very good relationship, a strong connection… when she grows up she’ll be proud that Karen’s her mum." Karen talks about how the PlayTalkRead website has helped her find things to do – things that don’t cost money and as Karen says "seeing them learn and know that you’ve helped them is the best feeling ever."
