Marnie Simpson has revealed her son Rox has started pointing and grabbings things and can recognise voices.
The 28 year old, who recently said her traumatic birth had "put her off" giving birth again, explained that her four month old has been developing quickly as just last month he was able to lift his head.
During a chat about Hungry Little Minds, a Department for Education campaign to help children learn through activities, Marnie exclusively told OK! Online that he's started "pointing at stuff" this week.
The Geordie Shore star, who shares her little one with boyfriend Casey Johnson, said: "He’s pointing at stuff and he’s trying to grab things now. He’ll try and grab the colours, he’s using his hands a lot now.”
Marnie, who recently revealed she struggled to hold her son when he was first born, explained she believes he's managed to reach this impressive milestone because she's been reading to him and playing activities with him, too.
She said: "I repeat things back to him, it’s all good for his development.
“He likes Hungry Little Caterpillar, he loves that book. I don’t know if he recognises them, but he loves it.”

The reality star gushed over her little one as she went on to explain that in addition to pointing and grabbing, little Rox can also recognise voices.
Marnie said: "He changes every day. He also recognises voices as well. Someone will come into the room and he’ll turn his head and recognise people’s voices. It’s just amazing."
While her little one might be progressing quickly, he's yet to be able to prop himself up on his own as she said: "He can lift his head up but he can’t sit up on his own yet."
It comes as the mum-of-one recently revealed she's lost more than three stone in weight after giving birth to her son Rox.
She said she actually weighs less now than she does before she fell pregnant, adding that the drop in weight is down to her cutting out sugar and eating healthily to help treat her chronic UTI.
Marnie explained: "I couldn’t eat anything with sugar in, and everything’s got sugar in. My doctor was like: ‘Look, you’ve had no immune and antibiotics aren’t really the best thing to…’
"They get rid of all the good bacteria. The best thing about fighting this [chronic UTI] is your own immune. So, your immune system needs to be the best it can be.
“So she [Marnie's specialist] told me to cut out all sugar, drink loads of water, eat loads of fruit, eat loads of greens – which I’ve never done in my life."
