I'm sure I can feed myself, if I can just find my mouth.

For some reason the adults around me, and even Léon want to stick spoons in my mouth. They don't seem to realize I am big enough to feed myself already. Ok I know I get most of the dinner on my face, arms, hair, the walls and even the floor but they just have to realize I am making a stance. I want to do this all by myself!

I've got the hang of crawling now. Last night I went from the red couch up to the cream couch and today I decided to venture out into the hall - wooooow - I wonder how you climb stairs?



I suddenly figured out that if you use both your arms and your legs at the same time, you can move around much more quickly than by bum-shuffling. Mum and dad seem to call it 'crawling'.



Kissing Anna

Last week both Pudge and Gordy were kissing me. I decided it was time I learned how to do this. Tonight every time mummy and daddy kissed me on the lips, I opened my mouth wide, clamped it onto their lips and stuck my tongue out and licked them. They seemed very pleased with me, clapping and squealing with joy, so I guess I must be doing it right.


Using the toilet

Today dad and I were going to have a nice bath.

He undressed us both, and he then went over to the white thing that mum sometimes sits on.

Then something weird happened: Yellow water started running out of dad and hitting the water in the white thing. I leant forward to study the phenomenon.

Then something even stranger happened: I suddenly started to pee myself, and as soon as dad noticed, he held me over the water so that my pee would hid the water, too.

Afterwards, he gave me a big kiss and said I was very clever, so I peed a bit more.

He then put me down on the blue bath mat and placed Léon at the toilet.

And isn't it funny? As soon as I heard the tinkling sound, I started to pee again.

I wonder whether they're going to try this again some day...


I've learned to clap

Fun in bed

On Sunday night I slept for 9 hours in my cot without waking up. Mum looked very pleased in the morning and was telling every one.
We can't have that...
So Monday night I got up 3 times, Tuesday too. By Wednesday, the first time I got up mum was so tired she let me sleep in their bed. That was cool. I decided horizontally was the most effective, so put my head on mum's back and my feet on dad's chest. They couldn't sleep but I did. Last night was most fun though, I got up at 1-50 and decided to play and sing and dance in the dark, kicking and scratching mum and dad just enough to insure they didn't sleep at all. I tired of that game though... after the first 3 hours...
