Food for thought

November 15th, 2007 by Trent

What a week it has been!!! I got my car seat facing forward on Saturday so now I can look at mum and dad drive which is really interesting. Then on Monday I had my first taste of rice cereal- nothing to write home about but that’s ok. I think playing with the spoon is much better. You should see the funny looks on my face – at least I did smile once! I am looking forward to trying many more new foods in the coming weeks – I hear sweet potato might be next on the menu! I also have given up watching “Cops” with dad at 10:30pm and I am sleeping now 7pm to 7am. My bathtime is getting wetter and wetter! I make sure I drench the whole bathroom and mum or dad every night with my wonderful splashes! I also have lots of play dates every week and in the photo below I am posing with Cassia and her mum Ilana. Although I look like the tough guy next to Cassia  (2 weeks younger than me) she can throw an unsuspecting kick so I have to watch out when we play together!

5 months and 3 days!

November 10th, 2007 by Trent

I am getting excited cause Mum and Dad have decided next week to feed me something other than milk!!! After 5 months of having milk 5 times a day it has got a bit boring as you can imagine. So next entry I will have some great stories to tell you about my first tastes of rice cereal. I have to admit I have started staring at mum and dad when they are eating and finally now they have got the hint!

Yesterday after my sleep dad put me on my tummy in my bed and I decided to roll over for the first time!!! Mum and dad were so excited (clapping and cheering) that I burst out crying!!! Sorry wrong emotion! Oops!

The weather hasn’t been the best so any opportunity and mum is taking me for nice walks or otherwise we hit the shops at Westfield.

Looking forward to telling you about my food and highchair experience next week.

Pinch and a Punch for the 1st of the month

November 1st, 2007 by Trent

It has been another fun week at the Collins household! I have done a lot of talking this week and blowing raspberries too.

My favourite toy is my best buddy “Chicco” a musical duck who greets me in my cot every time I wake up and we have lots of cuddles. And my favourite song is still “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”. Mum has also started to sing me an original song she wrote called “Sleeptime” which I love too.

Not sure if I mentioned it before but I can put my dummy in and out of my mouth – pretty cool party trick! I also suck my thumb very well, in fact my fingers and anything else is interesting in my mouth. As you can see below – I think bath time is the best – I am always full of laughs! I am also getting into my new entertainment toy but my feet still don’t touch the ground yet!
I cant believe i will be 5 months officially on the 7th of this month – how time flies!

A few stats: 21 weeks and I am 8.9kg and 66.5cm long!
