Felix and I went to visit my beautiful friend who lives next door this afternoon. She has a big dog who loves Felix, especially his breath. He doesn't lick his face, but he puts it really close to Felix's mouth and just sniffs. Felix loves it! It looks hilarious to see this really tall dog towering over tiny little Felix. Once Felix decides he's had enough, he just grunts and pushes him away. He can be very bossy when he wants to be.
At one point I noticed Felix touching something which was plugged into the powerpoint on the wall. I quickly pulled him away and told him "No". He went back to it a second time and leaned in towards it a bit before looking at me and shaking his head from side to side (No). I had to try and keep a straight face as he struggled with his conscience; knowing he wasn't meant to touch it, but tempted to touch it anyway. He has such a good level of comprehension and, like any other toddler, likes to check where the boundaries are.
There was actually some sunshine today, so I took advantage of it and went outside to try and make a dent in our long overdue weeding!! Felix hasn't been able to play outside much lately because it's either been too cold or too wet. I took him out to the front of the house with me and sat him in his sandpit. He was so excited to be outside. He sat digging and playing in the sand while I began to tackle the weeds.
Every now and again I would look back over my shoulder to see what Felix was doing. After a while, when he got bored with the sandpit, he made his way onto the driveway next to the car and started to play with the stones (which our driveway is made of). He picked some up and threw them; others he just looked at or put in his mouth to taste them. He was very content to play by himself while I weeded. He enjoys some alone time sometimes, just like we all do.
