my tank is getting too small.

It's definitely too small when I practice my power kicks.

It's limiting my training.  When can I go in the proper pool?

I'm hungry!

Look at me smacking my lips.

swimsuit shots - hot!

I can be quite an elegant ballerina when i am nor belching and farting.

I was a little nervous as my swimsuit is a little small and uncomfortable.  Are my legs too fat?

I can almost stand up these days!

A nice shot on my posterior.

I can sit!

I can almost sit probably now.   Wait - are those bags under my eyes?  Time for an eye mask perhaps.

My head rolls a bit still...

..but I don't panic anymore.  I think I mustn't wear blue again as I am looking like a boy again!

goodbye Bobby Charlton!

I had no idea why daddy kept calling me Bobby Charlton until I learned to use the google machine.  How humiliating!  

As you can see I have now got new hair coming out at the top and I am hoping that I will grow out of the Bobby look very soon.

It's almost like a mullet isn't it.   Not a good look and I think as cute as I am I might just about to pull it off.

another walk in the park

Apparently mommy and daddy took me to the park again on a quiet and drizzly afternoon.

I think I heard the birds but I am not entirely sure.  I was told that everyone got wet except me!

my new hair

Now that my hair is slowly growing back mommy said I look more like a girl now. 

Here's me sporting my favourite teddy bear babygro in pink thankyouverymuch.

another new sound!

more tummy time

I can now support my head with just one arm....

...but I guess it's more comfortable with two.  Perhaps I will surprise mommy by doing a bit of crawling tomorrow.

my favourite past-time

Mommy said reading is a good habit and I ought to start early.  Really early!

tummy time

I used to hate tummy time.  Now I don't mind it as much as I can support my head now. Yay!!

back by popular demand - more swim videos!

I truely like swimming these days.  Look at that smile on my face!

My kicks are getting better.  Look at me bouncing myself off the side.  Clever!

Powerful backstroke kicks.  Watch out Michael Phelps.

"Come to daddy" - piece of cake.

I like kisses.

A powerful finish!

my winter gear

It's November and I am in my space suit already.  What am I going to do when it gets colder?

eating out

I love weekends as i get to eat out more often!  I used to sleep a lot when I was out but these days I am too busy looking around.  

Me at the pub down the road.

Apparently I went to Laris!  Mommy and daddy tricked me into sleeping it straight through!  Next time I must resist sleep a bit more.

baby legs

Me modelling my new dress and baby legs.

I noticed that as little as I am my head is at least half the size as daddy's.

my favourite past time

My favourite activity at the moment: finger chewing.

I haven't quite worked out how to suck my thumb yet so my index finger would do.

I wish I could rub my gum more effectively.

Some itchy!

my first puff jacket

posing with Sean the Sheep

4-month swim!

I'm not really a baby anymore - I take my swim sessions very seriously.

I could even pose while I was at it.

Why do I foam in the mouth when I swim?

red-hot swim videos!

I'm 4 months old today!  Mommy took me for another splash in the water.  

Warming up - almost dancing in the water:

Me working on my back stroke:

Getting a little more serious here:

My finale before mommy yanked me out of the water!

a new sound

I discovered a new sound a few days ago and I practice it all day now.

Here's me first thing in the morning:

Me again alternating from retching and hand chewing:

Mommy caught the last of my retching/screeching when I was being changed.  Then I got to my usual excited play mode with lots of hand flapping and panting!

another new skill

My play mat.  I've been placed on my play mat pretty much right after I was born but I have only just started to enjoy it.

Before I could never work out what those dangling things are for and why they were there.  I didn't know why mommy kept putting me on it.

Until last week.......I suddenly realised I could grab things!

Look!  I can reach that hedgehog now!

Me getting busy.


It was sad to have to say goodbye to grandma and grandpa.  I loved all the attention and I was burped properly for once!

Grandpa and I have identical hair almost.

Hopefully it won't be too long before I get to see them again.

I can't wait to stay at their house and get spoiled. :)

grandma and grandpa!

A drizzly day for a walk in the park.  Everybody was getting a bit wet except me...awww they must love me.

For once I was actually awake and got to see the park for the first time, even though I go there once a week.  Must be all the extra attention I was getting.

I got carried around! Yay!!!

The park seemed different upright.
