New Toy

Hi All,

Mum bought me a new toy the other day. It's a big cube. On one side it's got a xylophone, on another side it's got an abacus, on one side it's got a magnetic white board, something else on another side and on the top it's got an animal maze (I used a lot of big words in that sentence that you may have been surprised to find that an eight month old boy knows but I'm very clever). I really like the top because I can climb up and play with it (just like in the photo below).



I still have my cold. For some reason mum keeps attacking me with little white pieces of paper. She keeps rubbing them under my nose. I really don't like it (so if you speak to her could you please ask her to stop it).

Gotta go - it's time for my bath.

Bye for now,

Family

Hi All,
Well, I'm back from Bairnsdale. Do you know what I brought back with me? A cold. I didn't want to be greedy so I've shared it with my mum. So we're both being misery guts together.
I had a lovely time in Bairnsdale though. Here's some pictures:







I did lots of things in Bairnsdale. I tried to play with the cats, I looked at a horse that Grandma and Grandad keep in their backyard and I gatecrashed a wedding (don't worry Uncle Tim gatecrashed worse than me - he went and stood all the way up the front).
I have to go and be miserable now.
See you later,
Roman

Don't close your eyes for too long!

Hi All,

On Thursday mum and I went out for a drive. I thought maybe we were going shopping, or to visit some friends or maybe even to the pool. I shut my eyes for a quick nap and when I woke up, do you know where I was? Bairnsdale!!! Mum had driven for 3 hours and apparently I had slept for just about that long.

So it turns out that mum and I are having a weekend in Bairnsdale with Grandma and Grandad.

It's been lots of fun so far. I've got to see lots of my favourite people.

Do you want to hear something funny? Do you wwant to know how my Grandma checks to see whether I have a dirty nappy? She sticks her finger down my pants!!! If it comes up clean, alls good. Otherwise she knows I need a nappy change. I think this is a very dangerous system and after 4 kids I would think she should know better. Anyway, I plan on having a lot of fun with it...

Bye for now,

Sometimes I get grumpy very quickly...

Hi All,

Sometimes my mood can change very quickly. For example when I'm eating I can be calm one moment, then cross the next. Play the video below to see more:

It's hardly surprising that my mood can change so quickly. Everything is very difficult at my age. Take apples. Apples are very frustrating... It's very difficult to bite an apple without those funny white things in my mouth (mum needs to buy me some of them). And they're round. That makes them difficult to hang on to. Watch the video below for more.

Hot or Cold

Hi All,

It's been a bit cold lately. Dad was worried that mum was not dressing me warm enough so he got out my big jacket and put it on me.



I was definitely warmer with it on. I wonder whether he saw the irony later on when he shared his dessert with me:

Such delicious irony...

Bye for now,

Snugglepot

Hi All,

Daddy dressed me up in his beanie today. Then he said I looked like snugglepot. Personally I think I'm a lot cuter but whatever...



Everyone's been sick in our house. Mum's been sick. She was lying in the bed trying to rest a little bit while I crawled around the bedroom. I tried to make her feel better by climbing up the end of the bed and playing peek-a-boo. I think it made her feel a bit better then I got bored so I started being cranky. I forgot that I was supposed to be being a good boy. I'm sure she'll forgive me. Daddy's been sick too. Although I think his sickness gives him more energy because he keeps running to the toilet. I've been a bit out of sorts today as well. My feeling a bit poorly was confirmed when mum changed my nappy before putting me to bed...
That's all for now. I need to go and have a nap.

Stuck!

Hi All,

Because of my amazing abilities in the climbing and standing departments I sometimes get myself into spots of bother.

Here I have climbed up the base of my high chair. Only problem is I don't know how to get down again:



Here is what happened after I tried climbing up the bookcase (unfortunately I was stronger than the book I was holding onto because it fell out with me!). I got cuddles with daddy so it wasn't al bad!

I've got to go now. I see something I want to climb up.

Messy Couscous

Hi All,

Lately I've decided to start spraying my food again by doing raspberries after every mouthful of food. So after breakfast mum was covered in Weetbix, after lunch dad was covered with (funnily enough) raspberries and after dinner mum was covered with pumpkin couscous. As you can see from the photo below, I was also covered with the couscous...



That's all for now,

I hope you're happy too.

Chillin'

Hi All,

Mum usually does house cleaning on Monday. It gets a bit boring and afterwards there are not as many little treats scattered on the floor for me to find and eat. Mum left me in my cot today while she did the vacuuming - I think that's because usually I chase after the vacuum cleaner and try and eat it (I have recently discovered that it is not an animal).


Anyway, somehow I got my legs through the bars and ended up sitting for a while.

Sitting is new for me - I'm not very good at it (to be quite honest I don't see the point - I can crawl wherever I want to and sitting is just going to slow me down).

Guess what I did today?

Hi All,

I had a lovely day today with mum and dad. We just hung out together. It was nice.

This afternoon I did some proper crawling - up on my hands and knees. I did it for a long time (maybe 2 or 3 metres). But then I realised I could go faster if I did my commando crawling so I dropped down to my belly and picked up the pace considerably.

That's all for today,
Roman

One of my favourite things

Hi All,

At Christmas time I got a present from my Aunty Leonnie, Uncle Justin and cousins Natalya and Lachlan. It was these cool bath toys that stick on the edge of the bath. It makes bath time lots of fun. Well anyway, I don't see why I should only get to play with them when I'm wet so I've been making some covert trips into the bathroom to play with them. I climb up on the side of the bath and have a play with them.
On this occasion mum found me. Sometimes she finds me after I've let go of the bath and smacked my head on the tiles. I've got to stop doing that...

Bye for now,
Roman

baby friends

Hi All,

My baby friends came to visit today. We were maybe going to meet in the park but it was pretty cold and windy so we played at my house instead.

Last night was so windy that all our lights went out. The wind was so strong that it pushed over a tree on our street. The trees in our backyard must be pretty strong because they didn't even bend a little bit.

Out lights went out for 4 hours so mum lit candles everywhere. I went to bed at 7pm like usual. The power came back on at about 9pm. Unfortunately so did the light in my bedroom. I tried to keep sleeping but it was too bright so after half an hour I gave up and yelled for mum and dad to come and turn it off. It was much easier to sleep after that.


Here is a picture of me and my lawn mower. My papa and grammy got it for me. I don't actually mow the lawn with it but I do keep the carpet nice and trimmed.

Bye for now,
Roman

Where have you been?

Hi All,

Where have you all been??

I visit every day to see if you have something new to say but nothing... I check to see if there are any new photos but nothing... What's going on??

Oh, hang on... I remember now, it's me that's supposed to be talking. Sorry. I forgot. I'm juggling a lot of balls at the moment so one was bound to slip.

Anyway... Here's a photo of me in case you've forgotten what I look like:



Sometimes when mum or dad are on the other side of the window I do blowfishes on the glass. It makes them laugh a lot. It also makes the window very dirty (especially when I've just eaten a biscuit).

See you tomorrow (I promise),
Roman
