Recently in mummyworld/17 month update!

Thursday, 5 September 2013

I think these updates will be few and far between now. Rio's a little parrot and will repeat anything you want him too and then later in the right context when your not expecting it. This makes me smile and surprises me every time..he really is growing up fast!

He's had a few more poo's on the potty, and failing that he will point to his pull-ups and say "done a pooo".  Half of the time he hasn't, he still struggles with pooing quite abit so if he's had a pushing session, normally in the middle of the supermarket or restaurant, he will announce he's done one when he really hasn't..making us look like shitty parents for not changing him!

He's still hit and miss with his food but is finally in Next 9-12..apart from the sleep suits, they make him have flippers.

I've mentioned it on a previous post but he has started smiling/sticking his tongue out at me, its the cutest thing ever but as soon as I go to capture it on camera he covers his face with his hands and tells me "noo". Well your in luck folks!

Speaking of blogs, I came across clothing that said "my mums blogging this" on pinterest this week! Very apt.

Other than that he has just been true boy, climbing on everything and football obsessed. His legs are full of grazes and bruises and he's currently sporting a red egg in the middle of his forehead. BOYS! I've tried the wrapping him in cotton wool thing but he loves being independent and hates being moddycoddled so that doesn't work for us.

He's obsessed with brushing. Whether it be his teeth, or the patio!

Scenario time: Rio's sat drawing a picture

Me: Oh wow! That's a great picture!
Rio: Its Mummy n Daddy


Its past Rio's bedtime. He's hiding under the covers 'pretend sobbing', we've told him its time for 'nan-nights' but  can do nothing but laugh. He suddenly stops, pulls back the covers, puts his finger to his lips and says

Rio: Shh, nan-nights!

Before rolling over and actually nodding off. That sure told us!
