Cha went out the other day and bought a present for Nong Lemon but she really isnt sure about it. But as for Ben………. He absolutely loves his new car.
What is really great is that its radio controlled so we can send him across the carpark and bring him back without any worries.
He found the horn on the second day which is permanantly fixed under his left hand. That was until he discovered that by holding the wheel and turning really hard he can overide the radio control…. It only took him three days to work this out. Me thinks he is going to driving a real car as soon as he can.
I have been in Australia for the last two weeks and thought a Kangaroo would make a good present for Ben. But he didn’t think much of that, he was much more interested in my phone. Never mind you can’t win them all..
Its a realy pleasure to see him change so fast. He is waking up to his surroundings now. He is responding to people and copying hand gestures. He loves the water and his two front teeth are through now. Appart from that he is just keeping everyone very busy along with his Niece (Nong Lemon) who he seems to like bashing regularly. Typical little boy I think.
Today Master Ben is 6 Months old. We are going to the beach later with all the children. Thats after he’s had a hair cut! This morning I did a double take as Sa was looking after both of them. It felt very strange .
Last Night we took all the Family and Staff out for dinner. It was a thank you for all the hard work to come while we are away. Ben and Nong Lemon were pretty good. Nong Lemon slept the whole time while Ben was 90% awake and totally interested in everything. He even tried Melon and Mint Sorbet along with a very small amount of my Cherries flambéed in Kirsch! I have to say he looked as if he enjoyed everything. (I have a feeling he is going to take after me and LOVE good and varied food)
We are just starting to think about feeding him other things now. On looking it up it does say we can start with Orange juice and adding some cereal to his milk. Probably not best to start him with Cherries flambéed in Kirsch though!
Strange as it may seem, today Ben became an Uncle and Sa became a Grandma. Which I guess makes me Grandpa although I really don’t think about it like that.
Nui gave birth this morning to Nong Lemon. 6.30am, 3Kg, no problems Mother and baby just fine. Cha seems to be copeing OK. I will add more when all the fuss has died down and they are home.
It doesn’t see fair that I have only been Dad for 3 Months and now, even if joking, being called Grandpa.
