A weekend meeting

Some excitement last Saturday. We went to a gathering - O fortunate people to be related to a J. Lots of cousins, the WGAs * were out in force and at the end, happiness, Wise Granny arrived. There was a buffet - lovely chewy bread, salmon, dips, carrots, strawberries and more. I tried to teeth on a stick of celery but that blasted front tooth still won't pop out.

A pleasant way to spend a day.

* WGA - Wonderful Great Aunts

Driving along in my automobile

Look parents. Last weekend I test drove a Ferrari. A Ferrari. What is this? I mean yes, it's a convertible, but really....

Oh, it enhances my cute, does it? If I was any more cute there would be puddles of cute all over the floor. Look, like that one!

Oh, it's sick, is it? Sorry, but sometimes when I scrunch up it just happens. It wipes up easily doesn't it?

Actually it's quite comfortable. It handles nicely and, more importantly it chews well. Lets chase the mobile teddy and then go to the park.

I don't need a nap first, no really, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

A baby and a balloon

Happiness is hitting Mummy with a balloon. What a pleasant bonk bonk noise it makes.

Daddy and I had yet another Father-Son day today. We hit the toy shop (John Lewis). We looked at new (bigger) Chairs of Doom and I bought some new toys. We then went to a shop where I received a free balloon. Of course this was preferable to bought toys.

We also went through the cupboard and removed my 6-9 month clothes. My 6-9 month Baby vests have begun to burst asunder. Clothes Sellers - why aren't clothes sold in correct J sizes? As the most important Baby I demand correctly labelled clothes. Onto the 9-12 month Baby vests. Agoo.

I am also working on a tooth or two. Can one become addicted to Calpol? I hope not. Mine's a pint thank you.

Strange happenings

Got a good handful of fur on the mobile teddy today. It zoomed off then stopped and looked at me in an affronted fashion.

Things are strange at the moment. Mummy gives me first breakfast but then goes and hides until it is time for me to start going to bed. Not sure what's going on here.

On a happier note this is me on holiday. I am just having a little arm-and-leg-wave in a meadow in Spain. I have just had a lovely carry in Mummy's arms through a forest and am relaxing. Imagine that in the background Big Sis is squawking about cold water; her voice mingling with the roar of a waterfall (for untravelled babies: this is like a shower only bigger). There is a pleasant smell in the air. No wonder I'm smiling.

Barbecues and a new diet

MMMmmmm. Today Mummy and Daddy had people over for a barbecue. Mummy prepared a bowl of gourmet snacks for me. I ate tomato, melon, banana, biscotti and a yoghurt washed down with finest baby juice. Mummy assures me that it is not made from babies. I was held and admired by all. Lots of bouncing and talking and once the extra people had gone I made some real progress with raising my tummy off the floor. Goodbye Tummy pivot and rolling, hello, well I'm not sure really but we'll soon find out.
Agoo all.


Woke up this morning at 6:30. Mummy came and fed me and then I laid in her arms exploring her hair and making little noises of curiosity and satisfaction. I kicked my legs and waved my arms. I smiled at Mummy. Can it get any better than this?

I want to ride my bicycle

Happy half birthday me!

For my half birthday I got a funky new hat and a new chair of doom. This attaches onto either Mummy or Daddy's bicycle (not both at the same time), I am viciously strapped in and then they pedal and I can enjoy the wind in my face. If they slow I can either kick or prod them in the back. The hat is to protect my head when I fall asleep. Happily the thud thud noise that it makes doesn't wake me up.

This is fun.

Jenga is not a good game for babies

A day of much exercise today - sitting practise, door bouncer, bike rides (with Daddy and Mummy). Meals - mostly baby glop but some yoghurts sneaked their way in and I enjoyed some biscotti.

Found set of new toys - they are called bricks. The idea is parents build a tower for you and you knock it down. The new bricks are also suckable. I think I like them.

I'm back

Back from holiday but Mummy has mislaid the camera so now new cute photos yet.

Mummy and Daddy have bought me a bike seat and helmet. Not sure about the chin strap - they say it fastens under the chin. I say "Which one?".

More tales of my holiday exploits to come. I can now be admired in several languages!
