Mom and Aunty Mandie tried to take some pics of us yesterday but Rian loves biting his nails, so I was trying to help bring the picture together by holding Rian's arm.
Rian thought it was quite funny!
And physio's being going well too, I hardly ever cry anymore, much to Mom's and Aunty Heidi's relief.
On Sunday, Ouma and Oupa came to visit from Stilbaai. They brought early Christmas presents for everyone, which are nestled safely under the Christmas tree next to the, now, three presents Meghan has been making for everyone. But my pressie was a great big bag of play balls so Mom thought it would be okay for me to have a go at them now already. I am slowly getting used to them, in the beginning they freaked me out a little but it does help when Mom and Meghan act like goofballs trying to juggle the balls and throwing them around in an effort to make me laugh. They are like SOOOOO embarrassing.
Bathtime is so much more fun at the moment now that I can sit. A few months ago Mom received a gift of sponges from a workshop she attended at Aunty Grietjie's and at first I was quite content to have them sitting on the side of the bath with me or trying to grab them as they float around in the water but recently I found that they are quite nice to chew on as well.
So that's what I have been getting up to lately. I am quite loving my food at the moment and now drink 180mls of milk at a time and finish a whole jar of Stage 2 baby food at every meal - okay, it is the small jar, but it still counts. Mom keeps bugging me with trying to give me all sorts of juice or flavoured water, etc to drink now that the days are getting warmer and warmer, but she just doesn't get that I don't like the stuff - as if my gagging and whinging isn't enough evidence. Thankfully we've had almost a week of no juice-drinking attempts - phew! And I do so love being on my tummy now - bathtime and nappy change times have become my ultimate opportunity just to prove how much. Sometimes it can take up to twenty minutes for Mom or Dad to try and get my nappy and pj's on after my bath, while I roll around like a goofy, naked spinning top on the bed, more often than not still with my sponge/cloth in my mouth. Mom has tried to take some photo's but I am afraid they are just too explicit for this blog...or ANY blog.
It's been great chatting to you all seeing as Mom's always trying to hog the posting - yip, she's a blog-hogger alright! :)
Oh...Oh! I almost forgot. Check out the new link to this really amazing website Mom's had me added to - it's on the righthand side of my blog - just click on the beautiful Prayers for Little Angels picture with the teddy bear.
