Seeing in the new year

Friday, December 31st, 2004

Well, I had just started to get used to 2004 when Daddy told me that 2005 was on it’s way. If all the years are this short I shall be an old man in no time at all!

Mummy dressed me up in my first “proper” outfit and we went out into the middle of Delabole with Nanny Jean and Grandad Rob.

It was a bit cold and I fell asleep. In my dreams I saw big flashing lights and heard loud bangs. I am told that I missed something called “fireworks” and that everyone was surprised that I slept through them.

When I woke up again it was 2005!

Having a lovely Christmas

Wednesday, December 29th, 2004

I’m really enjoying spending my extended Christmas at Nanny’s house. I still haven’t worked out why there is a tree growing in the living room – though it is pretty.

My new bed

Tuesday, December 28th, 2004

I have got my own little bed! It is just a moses basket that Nanny Jean got for me but it’s very comfortable and I like to sleep in it with my donkey. Grandad Mick has bought me a proper big cot bed as well for my nursery and I’m looking forward to trying it out when I get home.

To the pub

Monday, December 27th, 2004

Beer. Simple as that. All I want is a pint. But no – I have to have milk as usual. It’s not fair. Even a little Cornish Scrumpy would be welcome.

Nevertheless, it is nice to come down to the Port William pub, right on the coastline. I’ll just have to wait until I’m allowed a little alcohol.

“Grandad” Rob gives me a cuddle

Monday, December 27th, 2004

I finally managed to get a cuddle from my “Grandad” Rob (he’s too young to be a proper grandad!)

Off to Cornwall

Sunday, December 26th, 2004

Hooray! Today we came to Cornwall to meet my Nanny Jean and Grandad Rob. I like them as they really fuss over me. I think I’ll be coming to Cornwall lots if I have my way.

My First Christmas

Saturday, December 25th, 2004

Today was a special day. In the night someone called Santa came and left lots of presents for us. I got lots of lovely things and so did Mummy and Daddy.

I slept most of the day. We watched The Muppets and had a roast dinner (well I didn’t – I just had milk) and in the afternoon my Grandad, Grandma and Uncle and Aunty came over. I wish it could be Christmas everyday!

Today my Great Grandad came to visit and have a cuddle.

Coming Home

Tuesday, December 14th, 2004

All of my things were packed up and we got into a big red thing. I recognised the sound and vibration of it from when I was still “inside”. This was the thing that Daddy called his “car”. He made the car move away from the hospital and took us to our home. This was the first time I had actually seen the house with my eyes although I recognised the sounds around the house. I think I’ll like living here!

My First Morning

Tuesday, December 14th, 2004

I woke up today after quite a good night’s sleep in the hospital. Mummy was there next to me and it wasn’t long before my Daddy turned up too. I was much better behaved than some of the other babies in the room who were screaming all night.

I was just getting used to feeling the air on my skin when a lady that I hadn’t seen before came over and stuck me in a tub filled with water! I wish they would make up their minds – am I supposed to be in fluid or in the open air? Well, I wasn’t going to stand for it, so I decided to poop on the nurses hand – that’ll teach her!

After I was clean, I was wrapped up again and went back to Mummy for a cuddle. Soon afterwards we went up the corridor into a little room where more strangers looked at me while I was laid down on a blanket. It was very soft and comfortable though – I settled myself down. All of a sudden somebody flashed a bit bright light at me!

Then I was picked up again and taken back to bed. A lady came along and stuck things in my ears to see if my hearing was okay. It was – I could have told her that!
