Welcome back again everybody, this week has been fairly slow unfortunately. As I said last week Mummy and Daddy were coming down with a cold and low and behold I seem to have managed to get it as well, although not as bad as either of them yet. Maybe my defences are better... This unfortunately has put me off my food a bit this week and despite Mummy's best efforts I have actually managed to lose that half ounce and have gone back to 10lbs. Well lets look on the bright side, I am not back down in the 9lb'ers. Because I have been off my food a little, I was not getting my normal full tummy of solids. This meant that I was continually hungry and snacking from Mummy all through a couple of nights this week. Poor Mummy she looks a little tired, but I feel fine.....

Mummy and I ventured out for the first real time on our own in the car this week and we spent a nice day down with Grandma and Grandpa. This all went well and Mummy very capably looked after me as usual, no worries.....we can go out any time we feel like it now. Auntie Maria also visited me at Grandma's and I met my cousin Briony for the first time. She is great and I am sure when I am bigger we will get on well.

I had another trace this week on Thursday evening, unfortunately due to my cold and the fact that my oxygen was turned down on Tuesday to 200cc I did not do so well. I spent around 2 hours below 95% and a few minutes below 93% saturation in a 12 hour period. So just to be on the safe side my oxygen has been turned back up again until my cold disappears. Poor me I will never get rid of the tubes at this rate... But I think would have done much better if I did not have a runny nose. Mummy and Daddy just want me to be OK and I am sure another week won't make that much difference.

I was not sure about these pictures with Daddy, luckily he has big hands and they cover everything up nicely, but you do get a good impression of my size, if you know Daddy of course. And you will all be pleased to know that I could not hold on any longer while Mummy took more pictures and wee'd down Daddy's front as he was holding me. Luckily for me I was getting a bath anyway....

This weekend when Daddy was at home Nanny and Grandad visited, I have not seen them for so long and it was nice to catch up again. I have not seen Grandad since I was really little, but I understand he has been very busy. I hope he thinks I am a nice baby and comes back to see me again soon. I had a nice cuddle with Nanny, she is not really up to holding me in my favourite position over the shoulder so I let her rock me in her arms and talk to me instead. I also received another present from their American friends, a lovely Winnie the Pooh dungaree set and romper suit. They look lovely and I am sure you will see me wearing them over the next couple of weeks. Thank you very much for the lovely gifts they are really appreciated and go so nicely in with my clothes and my room. I cannot believe some people are so kind...
