Party Animal

Went out for Dave and Helen's thirtieth last night. I was about five hours down on sleep before going out, missed my window for kipping in the afternoon and then couldn't sleep on the train. I soon fixed that by having four pints and going for a kip in the toilet of the bar until closing time. Classic!

Continuous development

I'm continually amazed by how the boys acquire little skills, so that I'm playing with them and then suddenly tweak "hello, how long have you been doing that?"

The example that prompted this was Connor's habit of insisting on having one of the train letters for his name when he's getting dressed after bath-time. I noticed he has awareness that he can hold it with one hand while I get his other arm into his sleepsuit, then he needs to swap the toy over from one hand to the other when I want to get the second arm into the sleepsuit. Clever!!

Dinosaur hunt!

Family trip to the Natural History and Science Museum today. Callum loved the animatronic T-Rex! It was nice to go around the place; I'd not been for ten years or so, when I went to London Village to meet a friend who was studying at Imperial.

And so it begins (again!)

Connor's started crawling a good 'un. And he's not content with just that. He's gone from the expected commando shuffle crawling to trying to stand up already, and with his strength I don't think it will be too long before he's up and running around playing football. The cheeky little mouse is already trying to climb up the stairs!
