It was a beautiful morning this morning, Neo slept through the whole night without waking and got us up at 5.30… not too bad a time.
He had his bottle of milk and then I started to clean, by 7 am it was time to do the floor, so I place the boy in his highchair as he has a knack for chasing the broom, I get to work, he’s quite content watching me so I don’t worry too much about him getting bored. Half way through I stopped and gave him some porridge then got to work reassembling his play mat. I look up, theres this little face pearing over at me from the highchair…. He’s standing!!! I jump up, and grab him, he starts to bounce in my arms and get all excited. The reigns were on and tight, yet he managed to get free…monkey!
So it’s 1.30 pm now and we have to leave for a flat viewing, but Neo is stil napping, while he’s asleep I set up the push chair, get his bag ready and make him a bottle of milk, by now its 2pm and I go and wake him, there he is, laying so peaceful. I call him once and before his eyes are even open he’s smiling at me… too cute… then he’s up, I mean “wow” he’s not even had time to fully awake yet and he’s already jumping at the side of the cot wanting to be lifted out. Before I remove him I get a clean t-shirt out for him, I turn around, and there he is with his face pushed into the mesh of the cot, looking at me, smiling, he looks scary!
Got him dressed not a problem, he gave me smiles all the way through!!!
At the flat viewing I get Neo out of the pram as we have to go up a flight of very manky stairs… he’s holding onto me for protection, a little nervous at his new surroundings, when we get up tho he seems to have lost all fear and is looking at the guy showing us the property going “bah bah bah” while smacking me in the face, oh the love! He’s really interested in the flat and is trying to pear around all door frames and is consequently leaning very far out of my arms, at least one of us is interested :).
We leave the flat and placing him back in the pram is no easy mission, after a few squeals, lashing of arms and kicking of feet I manage to have him tied down in the pram with his sun hat on, he’s not happy! I give him a bottle of water, it goes on the floor, I clean it and hand it back, it’s promptly thrown back on the floor, he sure is showing me he’s not happy 😛 I then leave it and don’t give it back to him until we’re halfway home, to which he takes it and guzzles loads, he was just being stubborn 🙂
We’re home now, and he’s currently trying to get into the fridge, its gaffe tapped shut, but he’s in the process of pulling the tape off, the joys of boys :). Once he’s finished there i’m sure he will go and empty the washing machine for me and then will try and open the washing machine powder draw… Love it!!!
