|Me and my boy|
|Felix writing his blog|
Another thing I noticed today was that Felix is starting to recognise boundaries a bit more. We have had to place a latch on the sliding door into our ensuite bathroom because Felix had a fascination for crawling in there and pulling everything out of the drawers or trying to play with the bin or the toilet (not terribly hygienic). Today, Nathan forgot to close the door and latch it. Straight away Felix crawled as fast as he could to the door and then stopped before he went through it. He turned around and looked straight at me. He knew he wasn't meant to go in there. When Nathan went over to him to move him away, he didn't even try and race in there like he usually would. What a good boy! Although, I have to say that often if we say 'No' he will give us a grin and do it anyway. He's definitely cheeky!

|Loving time with Daddy|
I keep forgetting that a lot of kids by Felix's age would be able to shout out, "Mum" or "Dad" by now. Felix has to get a little bit more creative in his endeavours to get our attention. He is touching our faces much more now and turning them towards the things he wants. He can ask for something to eat, but the word 'eat' is very general. We are slowly learning to sign more specific foods he likes, but sometimes Felix has to be extra patient with us until we work out which food he is asking for. He will usually push our hand away (which is holding the food he doesn't want) and he will keep pointing until we get it right. It really reinforces to us the importance of signing with him.
Felix's nose has been running all day, he has been pulling on his ear and his cheeks are looking very rosy. I'm thinking we may not be getting much sleep tonight. The joys of winter!!
