A productive baby day

Updates on the two maybes:

1. The cat is definately NOT Zelda, because the new cat is a boy. He is a gorgeous, friendly boy though and looks like he would like to stay. Z wants to call him George. Romany and I want to call him Fake Zelda.

Either way, I think I should stop the pretense that my house is anything but a poorly run cat hotel.

2. I am not pregnant. This is a vast relief to the rational mind what with my body being grateful for the longer chance to recover (what with the stress fractured pelvis of the last pregnancy* and other evils) and me having started the last two incredibly intense years of my training. So in almost all ways I am glad about this, but then I am also sad because the human heart is both irrational and ridiculous.

Matei still continues to look almost nothing like me, although we have the same mannerisms - the same smile, the same glee. In almost all other ways though he is a mini-Z and I was clearly just an intermediary in the whole affair. (Don't mind me baby, I'm just the woman who went through nine months of lugging you around and not eating any interesting cheeses).

Thankfully though Matei is so delicious that I don't really care who he looks like so long as I am able to nibble on his sweet sweet baby limbs. He continues to gobble up anything edible and to attempt to hurtle himself over any edge he sees. He is also becoming more self-sufficient by the day and is able to entertain himself for hours with destruction of self and property while I tag along behind him to invigelate and minimise collateral damage.

Here is a snapshot of today's busy baby day:

Step 1 - the dissection and disembowelment of the paper shredder.

Step 2- fortified by a light snack of cords and plugs, Matei is ready to festoon himself with shredded paper.

Step 3- Thus decorated, he decides to take a small stroll by pushing his buggy along.

My day so far has involved still being in my pyjamas, so everyone is a success story.

*I gave birth with a broken pelvis but without drugs. I think this is less a testament to my fortitude as to the incredible effectiveness of Hypnobirthing techniques.
