16 weeks, 16 lbs.

Greetings serfs,

Sorry it's been a while since my last missive, but dad has been hogging the computer lately trying to get his work finished for film school. It was his last day today, and now he is drifting around looking like a lost child. I'll make it my duty to keep him busy.

Well, as you can see, I've hit the big 4, and hit a little over 16lbs on the scales. Everything is going nicely and I am looking forward to xmas, whatever that is.

Check out this great spit up I got mum with the other day. Timed to perfection, stringy, and smelling faintly of ovaltine gone bad. Man, I'm getting good at this...

Every day seems to be a new adventure. I have discovered these things on the ends of my arms which are awesome for waving around and grabbing onto moose for a serious bit of gnawing - yeah, I'm teething too...

I have discovered that if I use these wonderful appendages, I can hang onto monkey's tail and roll over - ha ha! Mobility! Nothing can stop me now!!

I've also been practising singing with dad - all together now - "Deck your balls with bales of holly, tra la la la la, la la, la, la!" I think that's how it goes...

I am also learning how to write - this is a message I recently sent my Auntie in England. She bought me the cool threads by the way!

In other news, I went to my first restaurant last week. It was a Peruvian one in San Jose and I went with mum and dad who were going to say 'happy birthday' and 'cheerio' to dad's friend, Ana, who is heading back to Colombia soon.
Ana is nice. She has warm hands.

I'll leave you with a couple of new shots mum took of me to celebrate my 4 month birthday. She let me have some belly time in just my diaper - on a white blanket no less - she must have been feeling brave!

Well, the house is going to be full of grannies and aunties and uncles and cousins next week - so I'm sure I'll have a whole bunch of new photos to show you soon!

Until then,

HJB out.
