Oliver in playground (Port Andratx)

Our holiday brought out some new behaviours in Oliver.

  • He seems to be close to walking. If I am sitting on a chair with him on my knee, he has developed a knack of sliding down until his feet are on the floor and simultaneously grabbing my forefingers on each hand so that I can assist him in walkin wherever he pleases. Sometimes he will venture forth holding only one hand.
  • “Dat, dat, dat… yah” reverberated around the apartment all week as Oliver pointed at the current object of his interest. This was particularly common once he had persuaded me to carry him. It sounded so much like he was saying “that, that, that…. yeah”. He was definitely directing us.
  • One of the songs at Rhythm and Rhyme is about “Ten little Indians in a tee-pee…”. It comes complete with Baby Sign actions. At the end the Indians jump up and so does Oliver with a little assistance! Immediately he then puts his head back to indicate he wants to lie down and start again. This can go on for ages.
  • He has also developed a way to show us he wants to go to bed. After his bedtime bottle and some cuddles, Hayley asks him if he wants to go to bed. He will then either shake his head for No, or tilt his head backwards to lie down for Yes.
  • Finally, he has also found his nose and occasionally explores it with his finger with such vigour that it makes his eyes water.
  • Nose picking for beginners
