|Uncle Felix and his nephew, Noah|
Earlier today, Felix was playing with his ball. He has got really good at throwing accurately at a distance of about a metre and a half, which is fantastic. If there are two people playing with him, he will be really sneaky and look at one of us, with a grin, but feign the pass and then throw it to the other person. He thinks he's pretty clever. He still hasn't had much success with learning to catch a ball yet. I think we'll be working on that for quite a while before he develops the coordination but, in the meantime, we'll continue to encourage the throwing and kicking.

Yesterday, Felix just wanted to be outside. He kept signing 'outside' over and over again before he talked me into putting my shoes on and taking him for a walk. We went out the front door and I decided to follow him wherever he decided to go. He walked up the street, stopping to touch some plants and look up into the trees at the birds. He walked down one of our neighbour's driveways to have a look at their boat in the front yard, and stopped at another yard to touch their beautiful green grass (which we don't have at our place).
Today is our Grandson's first birthday. I can't believe it's been a year already! It has been a joy to watch him grow and learn, and to see Joel and Mel really thrive as parents. They have done such a wonderful job with him. Tomorrow he is having a party at the Kindergym. I can't wait to take Felix because he hasn't been out of the house much since he's been sick. He's going to really enjoying being able to climb and play, and jump on the trampoline. It's such a fantastic place for a birthday party. Happy birthday, Noah! We love you so much x x x
