After his assessment tomorrow, the Podiatrist is going to come and have a look at Felix's feet and legs. I have no idea whether there are any issues with them. We used a Happy Strap (every day from the age of 1-2 years old) to stop Felix from splaying his legs out wide, and to encourage correct leg positioning. This is just my personal opinion, but I really believe it helped Felix get into good habits with crawling and then walking. The Physio was very impressed with Felix's hip and leg placement, so we'll see if the Podiatrist says the same thing, 6 months after we have stopped using it. Hopefully he's maintained the correct position. If you're interested in checking out the Happy Strap, this is the website www.happystrap.co.za

I love my football (Aussie rules), and my team was playing tonight. We decided to buy take away food for dinner and sit and watch the game. I just loved watching Felix. He sat in front of the TV, mesmerised by the game. He cheered in all the right places, clapping his hands and making encouraging noises. When people in the crowd waved, he waved back. It was adorable! He has started doing a lot of mimicking, especially when we sing to him, or when he sees people singing on one of his kid's DVD's. He has started opening and shutting his mouth, to mimic our mouths moving when we sing. I'm posting a video tonight and you can see him doing this right at the beginning. Enjoy... I think it's kind of cute!!
