Dear Mummy

Dear Mummy

I have been working on a little project for some time now (no it's not in my nappy) and I am pleased to announce that I have produced two teefs. You will find them on my bottom gum in the middle and I will bite hard if you put your finger in my mouth. (Consider yourself warned). I also want you to know that although I haven't bitten you on the booby yet, I reserve the right to do so without notice. Please don't scream too loud or you might hurt my ears and/or upset me. Please note also that any attempts to wean me at this time will be met with shrieks of outrage and big sad eyes. Also any attempt to move my cot out of your bedroom so you can't hear said shrieks of outrage will end in both your children being awake half the night. Face it Mummy, I've got all the aces.

I will also be clamping down on any spoons or other things put into my mouth. Including fingers belonging to my brother, who shouldn't be putting his fingers in my mouth anyway cause who knows where they have been.

I am working on the crawling thing. I quite like the drag myself along the floor 'crawl towards the booby' thing we have going at the moment and think it's silly that you are embarrassed about showing Grandpa and Grandma how I crawl. I like being naked and showing off. I can't see what the problem is.

luv Gemma

She hasn't bitten me yet, but I just know it's going to happen. I'm scared. Those little f**kers look sharp. At the moment the only way I can get her to crawl is to expose her favourite 'snack' and watch her little eyes light up. Needless to say this won't be demonstrated at the Xmas lunch. It's probably a good thing I don't get drunk.

Pers started crawling on Monday. She sat on the floor and watched me put up the Christmas tree and decorate it. When I stood back to admire my work, she made her way over to the tree, it was as if she'd been waiting for me to finish.

And just when I thought it was safe enough to put the tree up, too. She now has three teeth and I think I can see more of the top teeth coming through.

I think Gemma will be the bestest Evil Overlord ever :) well, she'll be in the Top 5, because there's some stiff competition. she'll definitely be the best Evil Overlord of the Horde!

something tells me there's going to be some astounding show-downs as this bunch gets older... and we'll have ring-side seats...

Dinghy has re-cut that stubborn fourth tooth. he's combined it with a head cold and sore throat which he's lovingly given me. what a great Xmas pressie for the both of us!

no crawling at Casa Del Speedboat. lots of reverse shuffling - Dinghy backed himself in under a chair the other day and then didn't know what to do. heh. lots of cunning flipping and rolling to get where he wants... he has the diagonal mid-roll direction change down pat.

I have this terrible feeling I may have created a Syncronised Swimming medallist.

Dear Gemma

Use them while they last... and to your best advantage! My first baby tooth has recently started to wobble and there will be money exchanged for it - hooray! And then I will get even bigger choppers that are going to cost my parents a small fortune - especially if i keep sucking on my fingers (which the dentist has told me off about). Good luck and use them well!
