Ben Gets Sick!

Whats Up Dad! I'm Not Sick

Yesterday Sa said to me. Do you think Ben is a bit hot! The answer was yes he is very hot. So off to the Hospital we go. His temperature is 38.5 Deg C! Poor little boy he is all sticky and grumpy. So he gets given some medicine and we are told to bring him back if the temperature gets any higher or he stops eating. As you can imagine he is not a happy chappy so nobody got any sleep last night.

On the brighter side, he now ways 4.6Kg and I can see him changing every day. He has started making lots of new sounds now, which is lovely. Just to make him feel better (or maybe me!) I went and bought him a new Reindeer hat and yellow boots. He looks so cute in them.

A Busy Week

Hello All,

I have been away in Roi Et this week tying up some unfinished business which I should be able to tell everyone about next month – very good news for Me, Sa and Especially Master Ben!

I O'Clock in the Morning still wide awake!

When I arrived home on Thursday I couldn’t believe how Ben has changed in the last few days. Firstly his sleeping pattern has changed, Gone are the peaceful evenings where he slept while we were out for dinner to be replaced with wide open eyes watching everything. Not necessarily noisy but you can see the little sponge starting to soak up everything. Its really wonderful.

Sa showed me if you lay him on his tummy he is already starting to push up and he can lift his head for several seconds. I don’t think it will be long before he is in to everything.

On Friday Morning we went back to Bangkok to make Bens Thai passport. He already has his English one. So as of next week, he is all set for his first trip in August

Friday afternoon we went to visit several more of his “Aunties and Uncles” in Bangkok, my goodness he is going to be a spoiled little boy when he grows up!

Saturday Morning I actual got him to laugh for the first time because I blew a raspberry on his tummy! Such I nice feeling. It was also Ben’s first night away from home. He seemed quite OK in the hotel and with all the attention the staff were giving him. We found the perfect way to bath him.

When we got home Sa showed me what had arrived from the Hospital. This is all part of the service. It’s really rather cute with plaster casts of his feet and his birth sign and the rest of the info.

This Morning (Sunday) Ben and I went for a lovely walk to Café De Mar and stopped with Uncle Shawn and Uncle Shian. Ben managed to smile at everyone.
