I haven’t written an entry for so long because I’ve been very cross (that’s putting it nicely) about the amount of comment spam. But the fact that it is now a week since Elisha turned nine months has forced me to come and write his nine month entry before I forget what happened. So much is happening these days that it is very hard to remember anything.
You’ve made it to three quarters of a year! Wow. I’d really better get cracking with birthday plans, considering how long it takes me to organise anything, and how organised I like to be. Anyway, this letter is supposed to be about you, not about my oddities. 🙂
The biggest change you have made over the last month is the arrival of four teeth. You managed to do it in about a week. There are two more just waiting to come through, but not quite brave enough to make an appearance yet. “Mumumum” and “Dadadadad” aren’t making much of an appearance these days, the current favourite is “Ladladladla”, and it is extremely cute.
You had a cold a week or so ago, and were very miserable, which was a realy pity as we went away for a couple of nights to Carmel, and I don’t think it was quite the same with you not feeling so well. But you’ve made a full recovery and right back into the swing of things now.
The patch on the back of your head which you rubbed bald when you were very little has all grown back with hair now, but it isn’t red, it is blonde. And very blonde at that. Looking forward to seeing which colour wins out.
I’ve cooked a couple of meals recently that we can all share, and it has been fun to watch you eat the same food as us. I’m constantly suprised at how tasty very simple (and even very healthy) ingredient based-meals can be.
You’ve started joining in when I play peek-a-boo with you. If I am hiding behind something you will crawl as quickly as you can to come and find me. And you’re so pleased with yourself when you do find me to. You make your cute inhaling laughing noise.
It is a real joy to discover the things that make you laugh,and I’m looking forward to finding a whole lot more of them in the weeks and months ahead.
I love you more than ever.

PS Don’t forget next Sunday is Mothers Day. (N’ah just kidding)
