It's all good!

I'm recovering nicely from my op. I'm making mom work! when i come home i check out what post is hanging in the post box, then i get mom to walk me there and i grab it... put it in 'my place' then go back for the rest. There's quite a big step so i need help getting up it, soon enough i'll be able to get the post on my own.

Nursery's going really well. I'm eating loads all by myself, getting much better at finger feeding. I love it there. I'm no longer just walking... i'm running! can you imagine? We've got a beach day coming up in July.. that'll be fun.

My clever cousin!

My cousin Hannah won the Audiblox trophy. She is the first grade 1 to receive it and was allowed to keep it for a week. Audiblox is part of her curriculum at Topolino school - it's basically a concentration/memory aid tool. She has also been put up into the next class at swimming along with the grade 3's because her teacher feels she has a real talent. Well done Hannah!

Met my new physiotherapist today

Sara came to nursery school to do a session with someone else. She popped in to say hallo to me and to watch me walking. She said i'm doing really well and it looks like i won't need piedro boots! They're boots that give support around the ankles, i'm quite relieved cos it's summer now and i'd prefer to be barefoot. I'll have a proper session with her in about a month or so.

Dying for a bath

I'm not allowed to bath until tomorrow. i've got really bad bruising in my nether-regions, mom has to be really careful when she changes my nappy, if it hurts i let her know about it though.

I haven't been at nursery, but think i'll go a bit tomorrow. Just have to be careful and mustn't try climb onto things.

I'm fine in myself though and had a good dose of vitamin D this morning.

Happy Birthday Maja!

Happy Birthday Maja. You're the big 4 today!!! I can't wait to see you at Christmas time. Here's a pic of Maja with her little brother and my other cousin, Kai.

3 procedures... one general anaesthetic

Had a really long day yesterday. Mom, dad and elisa dropped me at nursery. There was a photographer there taking pics of us. He scared me. I played for about an hour then we all went to great ormond street. I was really hungry but wasn't allowed to eat, i had a nice surprise though, Lizzy, Tara and India came to visit me briefly. They bought me the most gorgeous monkey pj's (cos i'm a monkey), and a cute monkey toy too. It was so nice to see them, i showed Lizzy how i can walk. After they left i went to sleep.

I didn't really say goodbye to aunty elisa, i wasn't feeling great. I was taken down to a room, mom held me while the nurse put a mask over my face. i didn't like it and it smelt funny. i fell asleep really quickly.

I was under for about an hour and a half. My throat was really dry and i was in pain when i woke up. Mom cuddled me and sang my favourite songs which calmed me down a bit. The doctors descended a teste, all went well but it's smaller than my other one. But that doesn't matter. They tried to unblock my tear duct but couldn't. I'm going back in 6 weeks for a check up, they may refer me to moorfields eye hospital for further investigation/surgery. The dentists had a good look at my teeth. Luckily they didn't need to extract any but 4 of my back teeth need crowns so i'm on a waiting list for those. Was hoping i wouldn't need any more general anaesthetic's... but looks like that won't be the case.

I'm feeling ok today, just very tired and in a bit of pain. There's quite a big cut on my groin, i'm not allowed to ride a bike but somehow don't think there's any chance of that!

Waterlow Park

We went to mom's favourite park today. I really like it too, the ducks make me laugh. I did lots of walking and tried playing football with some older kids, but they didn't want me to. Elisa leaves tomorrow. :-(

Nursery - day 9

Today was my last day of 'settling in'. It all went really well. I love nursery and really like debbie too. Next week i start officially... will only be going in for an hour on monday cos i'm having an operation. I'm having my testes descended and my tear duct unblocked... they may do my teeth too but doubt they'll have time.

Aunty Elisa arrives tomorrow for the weekend! can't wait to see her, last time i saw her was Christmas.

Nursery - day 8

Had a really brilliant time today. Solomon came. he's a musician and he comes every 2nd thursday. He plays the guitar and we all sing songs. I had such a ball. i ate 2 portions of lunch today, i had lentil bake and mince, it was delicious. I'm really happy at nursery and am making some new friends.

Nursery - day 7

Had loads of lunch today, fed myself most of it. Debbie put me down to sleep, i went down really quickly. there was a fire drill half way through so we all woke up... but then went down again. Mom was around incase i didn't want to sleep, but i slept just fine, in fact, i give mom more of a hard time than Debbie! funny that...

Nursery - day 6

Today i had lunch on my own. We had spaghetti. I fed myself well. Every now and then Debbie would guide my hand to my mouth. Mom came in after lunch then put me to sleep. Everyone else went to sleep quite quickly, i just wanted to play! Mom wouldn't let me though so i got a bit irritated with her, I went down eventually. I slept for an hour and a half and didn't even cry when i woke up (like i do at home!). I think tomorrow Debbie's going to put me down, but mom will be around just incase there are problems. This nursery business is a piece of cake so far, it's fun and the day's go so fast.

Swimming and hanging out with the guys

Dad took me swimming this morning. He does every saturday but i don't always blog it. We've got a new teacher and she's great, we have a lot of fun. We even jump off the platform into the water, or in my case... dad's arms. After swimming dad and i took a walk to my nursery school. Every saturday they have a meeting for dads and their kids. A free breakfast is laid on, dad and i both had some scrambled egg and toast. Dad had a chat to the head of my centre. He said i'm doing really well, mom and dad just have to decide what support i need. Cos i'm a special boy, i get to have 2 hours of extra support a day. Mom's going to speak to the SENCO and get the paperwork started. Next week is a big week for me. I'm going to be having lunch and sleeps at nursery.

Nursery - day 4

Mom dropped me at 10 and came back at 11.45am in time for lunch. It was my first lunch there. I sat at a small table with Otis (he's my new mate) and Freddie. We had fish fingers, chips, salad and beans. I ate SO well. i watched everyone finger feeding and fed myself quite a lot. I'm really good at taking the spoon to my mouth but have always needed help scooping, well today i scooped for the first time.. all on my own!!! Debbie was really impressed with my feeding skills, don't think she expected me to eat so well on my own. Not bad eh, considering i only started eating orally in October.

Here's a pic of me and Debbie, she's my key worker. I really like her, she gives great cuddles!

Nursery - day 3

Mom took me in today. She left me there at 10am and only came back for me at 11.30am. I was totally fine. I played in the heuristic room for a bit. It's a room where there are no toys, but objects made of natural materials. Things like corks, tin cans, natural string etc etc. Every day things ... things we find more interesting at this age, things you wouldn't be able to find in a toy catalogue. I met Otis in there, he was really nice and gave me a plastic lid. I played really nicely with everyone, mom came and collected me while we were having a sing-song. They are amazed with how well i'm settling in... i'm friendly and sociable and love interacting so it's no suprise really. I'm also walking more than crawling now!!!! Going to post a movie of me walking soon so watch this space. Tomorrow i'm having lunch at nursery. Hope the cooking's as nice as mom's :-) !

Nursery - day 2

Zsuska took me again today, only this time she left me alone for 5 mins, then 10, the 25 mins. I coped really well... i'm really sociable so didn't mind being left at all.

Nursery - day 1

mom's sick at home. nice to have her home all the same, don't usually see her in the morning's except for weekends. Zsuska took me to nursery, only for an hour. The staff didn't want to get involved too much, it was more about showing me around my new space and letting me explore. we did some painting... i love the feel of paint. i threw the sponge at the wall afterwards, just to make my mark. I'm back tomorrow for 1.5 hours then mom is with me thursday and friday. I'l sleep on those days and have lunch too, will be weird not being home but sure i'll cope.

Had another PALS session today. Wasn't meant to have any more... but i only start nursery next week so i went along. It was good, Zsuska (my new nanny) and i had a ball. I think i'll be fine in nursery, i love other kids so much, i scream with excitement when i see them. Mom's gonna miss me though... think the whole thing is worse for her than it is for me.
