In recent weeks we have noticed an abundance of new skills and abilities being shown by our son… we’ll share a few with you!
I can now walk about two metres without holding onto anything.
I can open drawers and cupboards to investigate the contents, I then like to remove the contents from their spot and chew on them.
I can say “Ta” when I am given things and when I really want something, like Mum’s hot drink.
I have learnt to point at everything I see, for a secret purpose that is only known to me.
I have learnt that Jiff makes great body paint. One day when mum and dad were distracted unpacking the car I found some and squeezed it all over myself and the carpet.
I continue to eat everything in sight. Mum and dad usually let me, except when the toilet, animal droppings or stones are being consumed.
I love drinking through a straw. It’s so much fun, until I squeeze the container too hard.
I am also really good at following my inbuilt clock to wake up at my chosen time. In Cairns this was 5.15 – 15 minutes before daddy had to get up. Now we’re in NT, and the time goes back half an hour I have been awaking to the world at 4.45. Mummy isn’t so happy about this particular gifting of mine.
