|Learning to shovel the sand|
It was fun to watch him learn to use his spade to scoop up the sand and put it in the bucket or fill the bucket with shells and little rocks. He dug a hole big enough to fit his foot in and enjoyed wiggling his toes inside it. It kept him entertained for a really long time.

|A bit scared|
We wandered up to the aviary near the beach and stood and watched the birds for a while. One of them came up close to the fence and wanted his head scratched. Felix had huge wide eyes as he watched the big bird so close to him and touched its soft feathers.
A bit further up, Felix stood against the fence and looked at the kangaroos. One of them was quite curious and came right up to him and they stood face to face for a while. Felix tried really hard to push his hand through the fence to pat the kangaroo. He made lots of excited noises. It was so cute to watch.
Felix had some new sensory experiences today that he didn't enjoy. I sat him down under a big tree and handed him a stick to hold. He looked petrified. His bottom lip dropped and he looked quite frightened. He responded in the same way to a big crunchy leaf. I'm not sure why he was scared, but I will have to make sure we try the same thing again in a few weeks. Hopefully he will overcome his fear.

By the end of the day, Felix was exhausted. Learning and experiencing new things is very tiring! So proud of our little guy. I think he will sleep well tonight.
