George's birthday party

I went to Clown Town today for George's birthday party. It's a big, soft play centre. I had loads of fun, i really liked those small balls that you swim in. Some other boys kept diving into them, it was brilliant. Hope i get some for my birthday. We got lovely party packs to come home with. Mommy ate the chocolate cake. I had icecream though, i'm not really meant to cos it's bad for my teeth but it's not fair if i never have treats.

Things i like to do...

When mom's not looking i go into the fridge, i love cherry tomatoes.. did you know if you sit on them they pop?! Only thing is you get loads of tomato pips on your bottom. I also like the tomato sauce they use in pasta, it's thicker than paint so if you pour it all over the floor it's brilliant for drawing in with your fingers.

I love shoes, especially watching them float in the toilet.

When i go outside i like talking to the holly bush. It's a really good listener.

I love cassettes. If you pull the tape it just keeps coming out, like magic. It goes on and on and on.. that's all they're good for though.

Most of all i love to sleep with mom and dad. I feel safe and snug as a bug.

Oh yeah!

My vocab is growing... i can now say 'hallo', 'oh no', 'oh yeah', mama and dada. I can make a few animal noises too. i like the lion the best.

Castles and forts

I'm really into building forts at the moment, they're really good fun. I'm hoping mom buys me a tent for my birthday.

Saw Matty today!

Matty came around for lunch with his mom and dad. I really enjoyed, we played football together and i chased matty around our flat. He played with me really nicely.

Busy day today

Went to mom and dad's friends.. paula and mike for lunch. We got there late, it was pouring with rain. I love rain, it tickles. I had such a ball. there were loads of kids there, including my best mates tara and india. I fell a lot though cos there's lots of steps at their place... good practise! I ate lots of bread sticks and mom made me a pasta. I saw Joseph as well, haven't seen him since he was a little baby. He's nearly as big as me now! Hadn't seen quite a few people since i was tube fed, they couldn't believe the difference in me. I've come such a long way.

why should i..

... brush my teeth? i don't understand it. At first i really liked it, but now it just irritates me. mom and dad are trying all sorts of tricks ... they're brushing my dog puppet ciro's teeth.. they let me brush his teeth too, they've tried in front of the mirror, different brushes etc.. but they don't fool me. i don't fancy doing it so i just lock my lips tight so they can't get in. i know i have to do it cos it's good for my teeth apparently.. but i just don't want to.

I'm not talking yet...

... but i will be soon or at least, when i'm ready to. My new speech therapist came around today. She listened to me, watched me etc and she's happy with how i'm progressing. I'm making lots of different sounds and she likes the way i communicate.. i'm not saying words as such but i gesture really well, have excellent eye contact and expression. A really good apointment generally. Got to keep up with the makaton and dad must keep speaking italian to me... it may delay my speech further but that doesn't matter in the whole scheme of things.

Heart, blue lips and endocarditis

I had a heart check-up today, they did an echo. All's functioning wonderfully and i don't have to go back for a whole YEAR!!!!!!! Every now and then i get blueish lips and finger nails, mom asked about it and it's normal for my age apparently... not heart-related and something i'll grow out of. It usually happens after a swim or when you're cold or eating, mine sometimes go blue when i'm eating. Mom's relieved and so am i. Didn't fancy more heart surgery.

I've had antibiotics once when i cut my mouth after a fall because of the risk of developing endocarditis, mom asked if it was really necessary cos antibiotics aren't hugely good for you. He said i only have to have them if i need stitches in my mouth or if i have a tooth extraction or something like that. So that's a big relief. All in all a really good day.

I'm scooping!!

Only started eating orally in November last year. I'm already scooping with a spoon and taking it to my mouth. In fact... don't really want mom or dad to feed me anymore, it means i'm not eating as much but that's to be expected. Am i clever or what?

Saw my mates on the telly!!!

Nursery was on BBC news this morning. I saw Laura and Elly, they were doing 'water play'. I waved at them but they didn't wave back? There was a programme about child care, they used my nursery schoo. as an example of what childcare SHOULD be like. not surprising really, we're all really happy there.. and otis lets me steal his chips when i've finished mine.

Not gonna be on tv :-(

BBC are doing a documentary on child care and they were coming to my nursery today to film the babies room. But i'm still sick and didn't go in so i'm missing the chance to be on telly. oh well.

Mama and Dada

I'm feeling a bit better today, my rash is still there but not nearly as bad as yesterday. It doesn't itch or anything like that. I'm not eating much which is unusual for me, but i can't be super-eater every day!

I'm starting to get the gist of the whole mama and dada thing. I also tried to sign in makaton.. 'how are you'. I understand more than i can speak. Mom's trying to teach me 'food' and 'drink' in makaton. Once i've mastered those i'll learn new signs like particular foods.

Still feeling horrid

Mom worked from home today so she could take care of me and take me to the doc. We went just before lunch. He's not a very good doctor. Mom had him when she was pregnant with me, she had spd and he told her it was 'normal' and to just get on with things. It was a pointless appointment. Just after we got home i came up in a rash. Think i've got some sort of viral thing going on, mom taking me to the doctor again tomorrow to double check. Hopefully the other doc's on duty!

not going to sleep tonight...

i slept for 5 hours today! I haven't been very well at all. Aunty Kir thinks i'm teething. I think she could be right but going to the doc's tomorrow just incase. I ate some dinner which is good, haven't really eaten much in the past few days.

I've been a snot bucket for the last week, and fighting a temperature all weekend. Poor me. I'm not too bad though, think i'm on the mend although still have bucket loads of snot coming out my nose, not sure where it all comes from?

I'm brilliant at opening doors now. Any kind of door will do... normal doors, fridge doors. I can also walk up quite a high step all by myself, but can't come down yet. That's next i think.

I've got this cool book from my old speech therapist. Mom reads it to me about 3 times a week. I have to copy sounds that she says... I'm getting really good. Today i copied 'mmmm', 'h-h-h' (like a puppy panting), also 'ah' and also aaaaaaaargh. I'm good at roaring like a lion too.
