Hi everyone

Just a quick note to let you know what I'm up to.

I've become quite hirsute.  My finger goes into daddy's ear up to the 
2nd knuckle (but you have to catch him whilst he's watching TV).  You 
can feed the dogs dirt and sticks.  The dogs' water in their bucket 
tastes like chicken soup.  Dried dog food tastes like watercrackers.

In previous email, you learnt that I have stood and taken my first 
steps.  Well, stepping is posing few challenges now.  Walking is 
pretty easy - I don't know why I didn't do it sooner.

I'm now mastering running.  Again, it's no big deal - it's just like 
walking, only faster.

Last night, I played BOO! with daddy - running came in handy, since I 
could get past the hide stage of the game more quickly so that I 
could revel in the BOO! stage.  Daddy's not a bad hider either - so 
it's a pretty stimulating game for him.

I've been concentrating quite hard on my eating skills.  For the past 
month or so, I've been allowed to feed myself dinner.  I prefer not 
to use utensils (as far as I can tell, they're best for throwing).  

I've learnt a few important meal pointers that I'll share with you:

.   If you spread the peas out on your plate it looks like 
    you ate more.

.   You can't hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk.

.   Milk helps keep your bones from bending over.

.   Parents are very hard to live with.
