Felix's buddy, Jacob, came over to our place for a play this afternoon. They haven't had a chance to play with each other for such a long time because one or the other of them has been sick, so it was great to finally get them together. Felix looked really excited when he saw that Jacob was here. They started playing together straight away. Felix introduced Jacob to one of his favourite play things; his beads. It wasn't long before Jacob was wearing some around his neck. They made quite a pair wearing their 'bling'. I told Rachel (Jacob's Mum) about my plan to replace the beads with something a bit more 'boyish' if Felix is still wanting to wear them in a few years time, but for now it's one of his cute little quirks.

Jacob is now 18 months old, but is much bigger than Felix. He's like a gentle giant :) One of the reasons why Felix and Jacob play so nicely together is because Jacob is very placid, so he doesn't frighten Felix like some other kids do. He plays very gently with Felix and it's so beautiful to watch. He is such a sweet little boy and has the most contagious smile. Since we saw Jacob last, he has learnt to crawl and is starting to sign which is really exciting. We sang 'Twinkle, twinkle little star' so that Jacob could show us how he could do the actions, but he was so overwhelmed by everyone doing the actions to his song that all he could do was sit and smile. It was very cute!

I just wanted to make mention that Noah's beautiful Mummy, Mel, has started her own blog about breastfeeding. Mel is only 17 years old and has showed an incredible level of maturity and a natural ability as a new Mummy. I'm so proud of her. If you'd like to have a read, her blog is http://mommagotmilk.blogspot.com.au/
