I have been busy since my last post. I have learned to sit without any help, I have moved up into the Blue Room at Nursery with the 12 month olds and I now go to Level 2 classes at Gymboree!
M+D were a bit worried about my moving up into the older class at Nursery as I am only 9 months old corrected but my lovely physiotherapist visited me and my Nursery nurses and said I would be fine and that are doing a good job of helping me learn to roll and improve my co-ordination and independence.
M+D went out with friends to see a play so I got to spend an evening with my Godmother, Sherifa. I only had a little strop and then settled down.
To celebrate my first, first birthday we had a party. Mum tried lots of cake recipes for my party. Regular readers will know what I'm about to say...I didn't get to eat any of it! Although I was given a small bit on my birthday. Thank you M+D! I think I need to keep trying more cake just in case I turn out not to like it though. And now I have teeth to help me eat it too! I have taken the sprouting of teeth in my stride. So much so, that M+D didn't spot what was going on until I nibbled on Mum's finger and surprised her with a bit more than the usual gummy bite! Now she is threatening me with a tooth brush and tooth paste. My Grandad P and Aunty Lizzie will be proud!

Today we went to the Science Museum with M+D's friends, Ben, Sam and their 3 children. We saw lots of clever stuff including the original model of DNA made by 2 blokes from Cambridge and engines from lots of different motors and a piece of the actual moon! Very cool. I think Dad and Ben could have stayed there all day.

When we got home, it was present opening time. I'd already opened my cards and thought that was over the top but the presents were something else! Gosh, I feel very special indeed. I got plates with Peter Rabbit on them, and plates with my name on, and a train set, and a big cuddly dog, and a musical elephant, books, a rattle and monkey. Thank you to everyone!

Well, I hope my second year is slightly less hospital orientated but just as exciting as I learn new tricks and get bigger and more mobile! Watch out M+D...

love to all,
