More photos

Two weekends ago Mommy and Daddy took me to the beach. It was a very cold day, but we had such fun chasing the waves and building castles. I even fell in the water! Good thing Mommy had put my waterproof dungarees and my coat on - I got a big wet patch on my jersey, but at least I was mostly dry. Today was the last day of term, which doesn't mean much since nursery doesn't close for the school holidays. But because it was the last day, my class got to dress up as an insect. I went as a stripey butterfly. You can just see my wings in this photo. It was great dressing up - I was very proud of my wings and all day long I kept telling people I was a butterfly!


It's been ages since Mommy put some photos of me up.

This was taken at Place of Play while my cousin Jessica was visiting us from Spain at the beginning of May. (Notice Leo in the back, Ed.)These are all taken at Butterfly World. This is a Duiker (smallest buck in SA, I think Mommy said).
Here I am trying to smile. And this is a little monkey that nearly came to sit on my shoulder until a nasty man who worked there stopped it.
During May it was also another of my cousin's birthday. I spent ages blowing this whistle toy.

This morning I broke my first glass... I was playing with the candles while I was standing on the toilet brushing my teeth. I stand on the toilet so I can see myself in the mirror. The candles were on a shelf next to the toilet. They are all in glasses. I was moving them into the right order, and one fell off the shelf.

Mommy was very cross at first, then she got even more mad when I tried to finish putting the others into the right order. I don't like it when Mommy gets mad, so I cried. I didn't mean to break it! Then Mommy stopped being cross and gave me a big cuddle.

After the cuddle I tried to help Mommy clean up, but she wouldn't let me help her. I don't understand why, so I cried again.

Mommy said the reason I was crying so much was cos I didn't sleep well last night. I'm sick, you see, and I keep waking up crying. I've been sick for AGES now. Last night, though, when I woke up coughing, I did a poo in my nappy, so I got up to tell Mommy. When I came out of my room there were all these people in our house! Mommy said once my nappy was changed I could stay up with them a little bit cos they were going to sing & she didn't think I'd go back to sleep with all the noise. So this morning I was very tired and didn't want to get up.

Daddy took me to the doctor this afternoon, to see what he thought about my coughing. The doctor listened to my chest and my back with a big, cold thing. Then he looked in my ears and took my temperature with a 'beep-beep' like we have at home [digital thermometer, Ed]. He also looked in my mouth. Daddy said I was very brave cos I didn't cry.

The doctor said that it looked like I had had an infection, but it was getting better all by itself. Mommy was pleased that I wouldn't have to take antibiotics. I don't know why - I like taking medicine! Not like Mommy. Mommy HATES taking medicine. I know: she won't take her medicine and Daddy gets very cross with her all the time!

Rainy days

The other weekend it had been raining, so Mommy and I went out in the rain (being very British). Then, when it stopped raining we went and jumped in the puddles. I got SOAKED and my boots were so full of water they were sloshing as I walked home. I had a lot of fun though!!

Because YouTube has decided that the video of me is either pornographic/ racist/ profane/ illegal, they have disabled it. So you'll have to click on this link to take you to 'Electronic Files', where Mommy has uploaded the video again. I hope it works, cos I think I'm very cute in this one. Watch out for when I tell Mommy to give me the camera so I can film her jumping in the puddle!

Today I fell while running and hit my lip, and now it is all swollen and sore. It's sore to eat and talk. Although it's sore, I think it's quite funny, so I keep laughing and then saying 'Sorry!' Mom and Dad think I'm too cute for words, so I keep doing it - got to keep them entertained.

The best part of my day today was having a family cuddle. Mom was sitting on the ball [Exercise ball, Ed], I was on her lap and Dad cuddled us both. It was so much fun I couldn't help but call out - 'Hip, hip, hooray!'

I also have a new favourite movie. For the last two months or so 'A Bug's Life' has been my favourite, but I'm moving onto 'Antz' now (we have both on video), except I call it 'Insects'. We're learning all about insects at nursery. Today, for our baking, we made Spiders using Marie Biscuits. All the way home I kept singing 'Incy, Wincy Spider'. On the last day of term, we get to dress up as an insect. I'm not sure what I want to go as... but I need to decide soon because Mom has to make me a costume.

Maybe I'll go as a Butterfly. We went to Butterfly World a few weekends ago. Although the butterflies were nice, the best part was seeing the Blue Duiker and the monkeys because they stood still and let me look at them. The butterflies wouldn't sit still, and I wasn't allowed to touch them either.

Art work

Here is some of my recent art work - Leo the yellow lion as strong as iron, and some flowers and a bee. We're doing insects at nursery this term.
