|New art for your bedside table, Mum|
Our shopping trip started quite well. Felix sat in the seat of the trolley, waving to people as we passed them. He had fun pointing at different things and chatting away. In aisle two, that changed. Felix wriggled out of his seatbelt and stood up on the seat (thankfully, I was right next to him so there was no chance of him falling on his head). I tried to sit him back down but he wasn't having any of it. I decided to let him walk, because he's usually very good and will follow me. I must have brought the wrong child to the shop, because this one wanted to touch everything. Before I could stop him, he had a container of yoghurt in his arms and was placing it carefully on the floor. When I directed him away from the fridge, he turned straight back and did the same thing again.

Last time we were at Kindergym, Felix really loved the trampoline. Today was the same; he sat and watched some children jumping up and down, with lots of excited "Oooh's" and "Ahhh's". There were a lot of kids wanting to use the trampoline, so I took Felix over to a big padded mat and helped him jump on that instead. He was doing the biggest belly laughs as I bounced him up and down. The most exciting thing for me, was when I put him back on the ground again and asked him if he could jump. He squatted down and then stood up as fast as he could, lifting one foot off the ground and then once that foot was on the floor again, he lifted the other. It was a bit of a cross between a stomp and a hop, but I was so proud!! All afternoon, when we got home, he has been 'jumping'. I'm so proud of our little guy for trying so hard.
