Poor daddy has been sick all weekend. He came home a little earlier on Friday night which was nice for us but sad for daddy as he got straight into bed and mummy had to nurse him back to good health. He was up and down all night but luckily I sleep very well through the night and he didn’t wake me once. Mummy on the otherhand looked a little tired when I woke her on Saturday morning. Poor daddy was still sick but he had to drop something off at work. He manage to make it there and came straight home again and climbed back into bed. I have never seen daddy so ill and we did not like it one bit. Mummy did a good job looking after him but after a while I got very restless, we had been inside all day and although I have lots of toys I have a very short attention span, so it doesn’t take me long to get bored of them, move on to the next toy and then get bored of that one. I never left mummies side all day and so she decided to take me for a little walk, Daddy had fallen asleep and we had to go up the road and get some dinner anyway. There is a great play area at Starbucks so we killed an hour in there. I met some new babies and tried to play with them and they have lots of new toys this year so there is plenty to do whilst mummy sips on her latte.
Daddy still wasn’t 100% on Sunday so we all stayed in again. I got very bored very quickly, mummy took me out for a little stroll around the park. Nothing to exciting much to my disappointment, I hope she has lots of fun things planned next week to make up for my boring weekend. Luckily daddy seemed to perk up a bit on Sunday evening, in time to go back to work on Monday. Poor daddy, he works very hard and I don’t like seeing him 100%. On the brightside, I have been practising standing on my own, I think the longest I have stood with my arms in the air and not resting my belly on anything, was 4 or 5 seconds, a new record! Mummy and daddy keep talking about me walking on my own, they have shown me plenty of times how to do it and sometimes they try to trick me into walking but I am smarter than them, and I immediately get down low and crawl. I do feel a little bit of pressure to walk, especially before I turn one. Alot of my friends back in Australia have already taken some steps all by themselves. I have 2 and a half weeks maybe I will surprise everyone.
Mummy had promised plenty of fun things in store for us this week to make up for our very quiet weekend. Yesterday we caught the tube to Liverpool Street station and met up with Sarah for a coffee. Sarah is always so happy to see me and I reward her with my best smiles. I sat on her lap for over an hour which is pretty good since I don’t like to sit still for very long. I am super excited because Sarah has a new friend for me to play with growing in her belly. I was lucky it didn’t kick me when I was sitting on her lap and I was very careful not to lean to much into her belly. On the way home we had to stop in at the shops to get some bread and milk, we walked a different way and found a really cool park with loads of different swings and some slippery slides. I had been such a good girl all day so I tried out one really cool swing that was like a huge basket. It was awesome!
Mummy has been very secretive lately and won’t let me on the computer as much as before. She always hides it when I come up to her and see what she is looking at. I think what ever she is looking had something to do with out little trip today. We went back to Liverpool street but this time we didn’t see Sarah, we got on another train and went to a place called Romford in Essex. Usually I like our little adventures but last night I wasn’t feeling well, infact I projectile vomitted all over my teddies and cot. Mummy just thought I had an upset tummy and she gave me lots of cuddles and kissed my belly better. I went back to sleep and slept through the night and this morning I woke up happy and ate all my brekky, so she assumed she was right about an upset belly and I was all better. Mummy had to meet a lady and pick some things up but unfortunately when we arrived in Romford I was not well, I was sick all over my cute little outfit. It was a shame as this lady worked at a soft play place called Funky monkey’s and she said we could use the fun place for free. There was so many new adventures in there and on any other day I would have been clapping with excitement but after being sick I was not interested and mummy didn’t think it would be a good idea for me to play either so we just went home. I slept all the way which was probably a good thing. When we got home I had a temperature and was sick again. So I am writing this blog from mummy’s bed. We are cuddling up together and resting. My temperature has dropped down a bit and I have managed to eat a vegemite sandwich and some water, so you don’t need to worry. I might have caught a little bit of daddy’s sickness but I think I am on the mend.
Tomorrow we are meant to be starting swimming lessons but mummy said if I am still sick we will have to wait till next week.
Silly mummy lost all the details of our friends back in Australia and their birthday’s so we have to give a group shoutout to all the babies who turned Numero Uno this month. Happy birthday to Jarrod, Andrew, Peyton, Skyla and Cora. I am sorry we are little bit late with most of these. From what I have seen on facebook it looks like you have all had some cool parties. Only Jake, myself and Ethan are yet to turn 1 but it’s not long now.
