I have stopped sleeping properly during the day so I take 15 minute catnaps occasionally and am a ratty baby at times. Hopefully this is just a fad I am experiencing.
Today I went with mum to gym again, she still does not get that I am not enjoying it at all. Anyway we compromise and she does half the class and cuddles me the other half – win win if you ask me.
In the afternoon we went to cheer my cousin on after her first day at school. I stayed out till dark again – not too late it is just this silly winter season that makes it so dark so early – maybe I will sleep a lot tonight. Mum is holding her thumbs so hard they are turning purple.
I tasted pears today and let me just say that I am not too fussed about them at all. In fact I am not as into this solid food as I thought I might be to start but we will continue to persevere.

If you ever need to make my dad smile just smile and talk to him early in the morning – it works for me. Every morning I have taken to chatting to my parents in their room when I go in in the morning and they just love it. Dad laughs hysterically and then they cover me with kisses. Quite a good morning routine.
This morning for my morning sleep mummy put me in my cot wide awake and I fall asleep all on my own. Mum was very impressed!
Today I found my voice in all its glory. I have been jabbering away all day very cutely. Mum is having lots of fun listening to me and as usual dad is just besotted.

I am having great fun eating my hands and making huge amounts ofsaliva. Mum keeps thinking I am hungry but I urged her to read all her books and see that it is just a developmental thing. I am progressing along just as I should and that involves a lot of fist sucking. She did try and feed me apple but I am really just playing with the food – I am not 100% sure of what she wants me to do with it although I admire all her attempts to put it into my mouth.

Today mum and I spent the day with my cousins. We walked down to the beach and it was a lovely day. I looked at the sea and I lay on a mat on the grass and took the fresh air in. We had fun except for every time that mummy put me in the car I screamed blue murder – I think I have put my cousin off playing with me. I am sure that he never thought such a small baby could scream so loud. As predicted I did sleep most of the day and as I type this entry I am just revving up for tonight!!!!
