Things i like to do II

I still like to go in the fridge, only now i peel the lid off the yoghurt and stick my fingers in, then lick them.

I love to draw with felt tip neo's. The couch is the best place, it's like a big, blank canvas.. even has the same texture. mom keeps insisting i draw on paper though but that's ok, there's paper everywhere.. post, books, bills etc.

I love digging in our re-cycle bin and playing with empty coke bottles or plastic pasta packets. If it's a coke bottle mom puts some stones in it so when i shake it it makes a noise. if i settle for the packet i like scrunching it up on one side, so it looks like a fan.

I LOVE to dance. i'll dance to anything but i like prince the most. I bend my knees and move my arms around.. i've got really good rythym, definitely got that from mom.

I love signing 'more'. In fact, any time i want food i sign. It's pretty instant, as soon as i sign it i get food put in front of me or a yoghurt, which is my favourite. I'm trying to sign yoghurt at the moment... had a couple of attempts but it's a bit tricky.

i love playing with mom's hair. i try and eat it and her reaction really makes me laugh. mom often asks me for a kiss, but at the moment she doesn't really have to, cos when i want to kiss her i just lean over and give her one.

I love it when dad washes my face in the morning. he makes me laugh. as soon as dad says it i know what we're going to do. it's our little routine. i also love rubbing my bare feet against dad's stubble on his chin, it tickles... but in a horrible/nice way!

I still love to sleep with mom and dad. Only now.. i wake up and reach for my beaker cup and drink lots of milk, never used to do that before. I know where it is and i put it back.. right where i found it.

I'm off to italy next week so will only blog when i'm back. arrivederci!

Baby Balloon

Tara and India celebrated their birthday early, by inviting their friends to Baby Balloon. It's a show at a theatre, there were people dressed as marshmallows with stripey tights on, they play with balloons and entertain us. I enjoyed popping the bubbles the most.

We walked along the south bank and had lunch, it was perfect, right near hundreds of water fountains that we could touch and splash about in. After lunch we walked to borough market. There were lots of interesting smells and lots of people.

drdrdrdrdrdrdrdrdrdrdrrrrr (that's a drum roll!)

I had my latest developmental assesssment over 2 days. I'm approx 6 months behind in my gross motor skills... learnt to walk 2 months ago so that's not bad at all, i'm happy going up stairs... just not so happy going down (gives me the heebie jeebies). I'm 10 months behind in speech... that's also pretty good. Dad speaks to me in italian and mom speaks to me in english so it's taking me a bit of time to work that all out. I'm extremely vocal and my understanding is good... so it's just a matter of time before i start nattering. I have long converstations with anyone who'll listen at the moment.. soon all my expressions and sounds will turn into words.

and.. guess what..??? i'm 2 months behind in my fine motor skills!!!!!!!! I'm feeding myself really well with a spoon, i can hold a yoghurt pot and dip the spoon in with my other hand and feed myself... i'm also really good at drawing and holding a crayon. I'm doing so well, my new therapists are really pleased with me. i really like them all.. they're patient and don't push me. if i don't like what they're trying to make me do they work around it and make it all fun.

I'm changing and growing up. I have a gsoh... if i do say so myself :-)

Went to see Dawnus and Mark

Had a really fun day. It was gorgeous weather... i slept all the way in the car so was nice and fresh when we arrived. I had a yummy lunch then ran around in the garden. I played a bit of football, did some water play with mom... ended up pouring the whole lot down my front.. it was hot and it cooled me down.

I chased a cat around a lot and pulled it's tail. It kept running away from me though, wonder why? I must be careful around dogs and cats i don't know... they could bite/scratch me. I just get so excited when i see them... hope i get my own some day. I got a really cute outfit from dawn and mark for my Thanks so much!

Happy birthday mom!

I don't really understand what birthday's are all about.. but today was different so i guess that's why it's called a birthday. It was different cos dad was up before mom to make her tea (he's usually in bed when mom wakes up), and he collected me from nursery (mom usually collects me).I know mom went for some lunchtime drinks. Dad collected me and we all spent the afternoon together which was a bit of a novelty for me. in the week anyway! i'll be mom's age in 2038. work that one out!

Charlie & Jenny's housewarming

We went to deal, kent today for a house warming. it's by the sea and i just loved it. I loved it for lots of reasons, i got to play with the coolest kids... india, tara, joseph and elliot. I got to pat dogs and chase them on the promenade after having breakfast with mom and dad... and played footie with a little girl called Bethany, i got to play in a big inflatable jail (how many people can say they've done that?), i got to paddle in a paddling pool and flirt with the older girls there, especially Milly and Emma... when i wasn't flirting i got to splash about with joseph, india and tara, i got to eat some icecream, i got to dip my feet in the ocean and i got to go for a long walk in the sun which was so relaxing i drifted off. also stayed the night in a hotel which had a sea view... it was bliss! thank you charlie and jenny. x

I saw my geneticist today for the first time since i was 3 months old. He watched me for a bit and in his words.. said i'm 'remarkable'! He couldn't believe how well i was doing and said that if i'm doing all these things at age 2, then i will probably catch up with my peers, if i don't, there will be a very small gap. I don't think he expected to see me doing so well (don't know why.. guess chromosomes are a bit hectic).. but i've worked really hard these last 2 years to get where i am so it's all paid off!!! Now it's time to have fun!
