17 Months Old Today

Have you noticed how quickly the months fly past now? I am nearly a year-and-a-half old! Mummy still hasn't taken to get an update on my weight and height (perhaps she will do it for next months milestone month?).
Now that my highchair has been moved into the kitchen Mummy lets me experiment with feeding myself and I do a pretty good job if I am hungry and make a lovely mess if I'm not!

I am a lot steadier on my feet now and Mummy doesn't have to worry so much about me falling off things as I now understand that it hurts!
I know where my feet, legs, arms and tummy are and can say 'nose', eyes' and 'mouth' too. I name my clothes as I get dressed in the morning 'jeans', 'socks', 'shoes' and 't-shirt'. BUT I STILL WON'T SAY MY NAME!!
My latest clever trick is to sign that I want my nappy changed just so that Mummy will take me upstairs to see Dillon (I'm not allowed to bring him downstairs) but Mummy has now worked out that I am just tricking her!

Dora The Explorer is still my favourite programme and I say 'Oh Man' at the right time in the title song. After my breakfast and after my dinner I put my arms up and say 'Dora' because I like to finish my meal with a little TV relaxation time!

At the moment Mummy is teaching me to say 'please' and 'thank you' as "manners don't cost a thing"!

Goodbye Sing & Sign

Today was our last Sing & Sign class. We have decided to go and try something different as I already saying some of the words that I am learning to sign and it doesn't seem so worthwhile now. I still love signing the words that I know and we will keep it up but it's time to move on.

Here I am with my Super Signer certificate that I got a couple of weeks ago.

Swings & Trampolines

Today we went over to Alicia's house and played with her toys in the garden. She has a swing, slide and a trampoline. It was brilliant.

Fun At Fairlands


Cheeky Girl!
"Come on Nicki, push me higher!"
Today, I joined Mummy & Nicki on their Sunday morning exercise time. We went for a long walk around Fairlands Valley Park in Stevenage. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day. They were walking very fast and I was pointing out things of interest like: dog, duck and car. We ended up at the playground and they made me giggle so much that I started to yawn so I went back in my buggy and fell asleep - aaahhh!

Did You Win?

Today was the Grand National. Ollie and his Mummy & Daddy came over to watch the race with us and we all had a flutter but alas we didn't win.

Mummy had Point Barrow (fell at the first fence!), I had Joes Edge (fell at the 20th) and Daddy had McKelvey which came second, but silly Daddy only put his bet on to win not both ways like me and Mummy, so he didn't get anything, he was so annoyed.

Ollie's auntie's had Philson Run which came fourth and the odds were 100-1, she did ok didn't she?!

Back Together Again

First beautiful blond - Lola

Second beautiful blond - Jasmine

Third beautiful blond - Alicia

Today we went to Jasmine's house to meet all our friends. Olly & Vicki were back from France for a few weeks. (They have moved to Cannes for a year because Olly's Daddy has a job there.) It was lovely to see everyone together again so we celebrated with Champagne and chocolates.

Playing In Ollie's Garden

"Come and look at the tadpoles"

"Do they bite?"

"We're in a right pickle now boys"

"Ollie, can you help me?"

Today we went to play at Ollie's house and his older brother and sister and Daddy were there as well as his Auntie and Nan and Grandad! We played with the hula hoop, neither of us could keep it up for very long!

Jessie The Dog

Here I am playing with Jessie and Daddy at Grandad's house. I LOVE DOGGIES! We were invited over for a lovely roast dinner and then we went for a walk around Pirton which is where Daddy grew up. He was pointing out places of interest and where he probably got up to no good when he was younger!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter to everyone. I got a lovely bunny and a little lamb and a bit of cash to save for a rainy day.

Daddy was busy painting the kitchen so I went for a ride on my tricycle with Mummy. We then went to the play area in front of our house. It has a slide and steps which was just the right size for me.

My Tricycle

"Which bit do it hit?"

"Yay - all done!"

Here I am on my new tricycle. I get a fit of the giggles when Mummy pushes me along. I cannot quite get the hang of the peddles moving without me moving them yet!!
