We’ve had a fair few days without too many mischievous little acts taking place. Saying that though, he hasn’t been sitting still either!
He woke up at 5.30 this morning and continued to shout us up going “gaaaaa ga, baaah, tsk, tsk” I rolled over and looked at him, there he was, smiling and bouncing waiting to be released from what he deems as prison… his cot! I’m always last out of bed, which suits me fine.
When the shower gets put on about 6 am, after neo has had his much desired bottle of milk, the door is open to the bathroom. It’s a wet room really so no separate bath bit or shower, its just walk straight in and you’re in the shower. Well, Neo loves a shower, so the door is open and he’s sitting and watching the water fall, looking at me to see if he can go in “No” I say to him, he stays where he is, but starts bouncing up and down in excitement, by doing this he is edging himself closer and closer, bit by bit. Must think mummy doesn’t realise. “No Neo” I say to him, he looks at me and gives a cheeky smile, and he’s off, heading towards that bathroom door, his little bum is all I see, i’m up, trying to grab him, he squeals in excitement at the prospect of the shower, before I know it he’s in the wet room, in his pyjamas, and has managed to get soaked. Wow. He sure can move. I pull him out, much to his anguish, change him and place him away from the shower with his toys, this doesn’t make him happy, he screams at the realisation he can’t make a break for it.
The day progresses, and lunch time rolls around, i’m not the best of cooks so while he is napping I look online to see what I can make him to eat thats different, ah yea, pancakes, with tuna, he will love that as tuna is his favourite food! I set to work. 45 minutes goes by, and a load of pancakes later and he awoke. I peer my head round the door, there he is, face pushed into the mesh of the cot, distorting him slightly, I laugh at him “hello baby” He sits up and beams the biggest smile at me going! I place him on his play mat and sit next to him with the tub of pancakes i’ve made and hand him one. He looks at it like i’ve just handed him a wriggly worm or something, not impressed, I encourage him sto eat it, and eventually he does try it… and likes it… woop! He hugs me straight after, wow, now that is nice.
So we head off to the park again, mainly because Neo loves to go! He’s getting more outgoing in the pram so as we’re heading along the road, he;s looking at objects and shouting “baaaa”, such as bikes, scooters, tree’s, squirrels, vans, lorries, busses etc etc and I find myself explaining everything to him “Thats a bike baby, you have to have balance to ride one of them on 2 wheels, children ride them for exercise and to get somewhere fast, when you’re bigger you will ride one” This continues for the full walk to the park. We have a go on the swings and he screams in delight, thats all thats there for him really, he doesn’t like the slide too much so I take him to the grass where he can practice his walking some more. He wants to push the pram, and does just that, with me guiding it, he’s content on pushing it and amongst stumbles and falling over he does really well 🙂
When it’s time to head home, Neo has other ideas and kicks up a tantrum, I secure him in the pushchair and walk, hoping soon that he will settle and enjoy the journey back. He soon does and is back to having both arms either side of the push chair going baaah baaaah baaaah.
After visiting a few shops and returning home we get the toys out. Neo has other ideas, instad of playing with them, he thinks its a good idea to throw them all out over the stair gate onto the patio, some even succeed in hitting the cat, this just excites him and entices more throwing, haha, he has an evil streak 😛
So thats as far as today has got and i’m sure i’m going to have the entirety of his toys to retrieve from outside later on and a kitty who’s going to need some cuddles… may dinner time go smoothly and may I have no more baby escaping from highchair scenarios 🙂
