A mother has shared the hilarious moment her baby pretends to be asleep after she catches her messing around in her cot instead of napping.

Emma Hore, 23, from Saltash, Cornwall, was checking on one-year-old Emelia Harper via her video baby monitor when she noticed the tiny troublemaker was not settling down for her afternoon snooze.

The video shows mischievous Emelia playing and pouring milk down the side of her cot, unaware that her mother is watching her via the device. 

To her surprise she suddenly hears her mother’s voice say ‘Emelia, no,’ over the monitor.

The little actress looks around for her mother before quickly collapsing into her blankets and pretending to be asleep. 

At that point her mother can be heard breaking out in hysterical laughter at the little one’s dramatic performance.  

Baby Emelia Harper, one, is seen playing when she is meant to be napping as her mother watches through the baby monitor at their home in Saltash, Cornwall

Ms Hore tells the camera: ‘Literally cracking up. Emelia was just doing that [pouring milk on her cot] and I spoke to her on the monitor and she pretended she was asleep.’  

The baby stays lying down for a moment before deciding the coast is clear to pop back up and continue playing. 

Ms Hore, a student nurse, said: ‘The video made me and our family and friends smile.

‘I hope the video puts a smile on people’s faces.’
