Upside down
Felix has another new admirer today, after I caught up with a friend I haven't seen in years. Before she came over to our house, she sent me a message asking if she could bring a treat for Felix, because she wanted him to like her. I assured her the fact that she was female and over the age of five, it was a sure thing! He was definitely going to like her!

When Felix heard the knock at the front door, he rushed over, to help me open it, and my friend was welcomed with a huge smile. Of course, he pretended to be shy, but it only lasted for a couple of minutes. She brought a packet of chocolate covered biscuits with her. They were tiny little ones and Felix thought they were great. If he didn't love her before, he definitely did after tasting those! By the end of the visit, he was giving her huge cuddles and cheeky grins. He's such a little charmer!

Trying to get out of going to bed
Playing with Daddy is one of Felix's favourite things to do. Nathan will lay on the ground and Felix will jump all over him. Tonight, Felix was sitting on Nathan's head. I couldn't stop laughing but I don't think Nathan thought it was as funny as I did. Every time Nathan lifted him off, he'd go back and do it again. After that, Nathan started lifting Felix off the ground and hanging him upside down. Felix was laughing and signing 'again'. I was just sitting there hoping his dinner wasn't going to end up all over the front of Nathan's shirt. Boys will be boys!

At bedtime tonight, Felix kept trying to get out of going to bed. He shook his head, 'No', when we told him it was bed time and then, very emphatically, shouted "Eat" (while signing it as well). When he realised we weren't giving in and getting him food, he walked as fast as he could down to the lounge room and started snuggling, on the couch, with his big brothers. When we tried to pick him up from the arms of one of the boys, he would dive into the arms of the other one. The whole time he had a grin on his face because he knew he was prolonging his bedtime. He wasn't too impressed when we finally wrestled him away from the boys and took him to bed but, judging by the silence coming from his room, he didn't take long to go to sleep.
