Strangely I forgot about my training regime for Mum and Dad last night and accidentally stayed asleep. Indeed if Mum hadn't forcibly woken me up at 5.30am I might have slept right through. She was anxious I get regular feeds - very kind of her but I think it should be for me to decide when I wish to eat.

And we went walkies again. This time to the Southbank (just south of the river Thames in central London). We went for brunch to Giraffe. This is a very child-friendly chain of restaurants. Last time M&D went there they felt like they were the only ones without their baby - so it was nice that this time they had ME! And we went back to St Thomas's to collect two cards and two parcels - many thanks to Arna and Catherine for the pressies.
And I got home and felt super wide awake so Dad read me a story called "The places you'll go" by Dr Seuss. It too was a present from Leanne and family on the Isle of Man. Thank you - I looked at all the pictures very carefully and Dad reads very well. So I look forward to hearing it again soon.

And then friends came round and brought a yummy cake. And once again M&D ate cake and didn't offer me any. This is getting repetitive.
|Fred (holding me) and Sherifa made the cake. Apparently it was lovely, humph.|
And then it was time to start my 'download' (the 12 hour recording of my blood oxygen saturations). And we realised there was a problem. The recording is done on a special machine. One end is attached to me, and one end to mains electricity. And the cord is quite short. And I also have oxygen tubing.
Well by the time M&D had finished rearranging the bedroom so all the cords/tubes would reach I was properly cross. So I pulled my oxygen off. Apparently this was the wrong thing to do whilst having my levels checked. I'd like to point out that my numbers are super-good whether I've actually got the prongs up my nose or not. But M&D say I have to wear them and be well behaved. I think that parents who don't share their cake (which had MY name on the top) are in no position to give orders.
Hopefully my overnight numbers will be good. Then I can stop this nonsense and just be a normal baby. (Though I'm very grateful they're so careful with me - obviously)
Oh, and 60,000 hits so far from 57 countries. I think my biggest proportion of a continent (other than Oz and NZ) is the Americas - Canada, US, Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Bolivia, Peru, Columbia and Argentina so far.
Love to all,
