Learning about water and washing-up
This is the little chap at the sink. We bought him a waterproof artist's smock to keep the water off. He plays for hours moving the plastic cups around and dabbling in the water. Its all part of learning to get hold of things and move them elsewhere - and this time the things are bobbing about floating in the water - an added complication.

House moving in earnest
Today marks the beginning of the moving house. The start of clearing the loft of the accumulated junk of only a few years. Only a short while ago I put down a floor and put in extra lights so that one could get around and see in my daugters loft. I thought that it would make it easy to retrieve a few stored items. And the next time I looked the whole thing had silted up with - who knows what???
Just tons of STUFF. So Penny is busy clearing the loft and we are baby sitting.
Its 15.00 and time for his milk.
He drank about 1/3 of it quite contentedly and then stopped and did not want anymore.

This is my first Grand Parent Blog
This will be the day to day events of Ripley and his Grand Parents - on his mother's side.
He is about 14 months now. He can walk and make sounds that could be words. Overall he is a wonderful little boy.
The following is a picture of he and me.
Well - that is a picture of both of us.
The computer tells me that this picture was taken on the
1st January 2006 at 11:49:01. Looks like he is eating an apple.
