Bears 1st Christmas Party

This week was Bears first Tots Club Christmas Party. We weren't too sure how much he would enjoy it but we were determined to go. Bear refused his morning nap which meant we got to the party on time (yeah!) but he was very tired (booo!) so after an hour we decided to leave. That was plenty of time for us!

Stars in his hands, just waiting for me to turn my back so he can taste them

He is getting so confident now, sitting with the other children and sharing their food, not his food mind just theirs!

Just help yourself to my food!

He also did the actions to the Rabbit song. We only remember the words when we sing along but it goes from them lying down and being still, Shh Shh, finger to lips To wake up! Everyone jump up!

See the bunnies sleeping
'til it's nearly noon
Shall we wake them
With a merry tune?
They're so still, shhs, are they ill? Shhh
Wake up, little bunnies
Hop little bunnies
Hop, hop, hop, 
Hop, hop, hop,
Hop little bunnies
Hop, hop, hop, 
Hop, hop, hop

Shh! He's so chuffed he now knows what to do!

He was great and I managed to get a couple of blurred photo's!

He also helped Grandad put the decorations on the tree, and take them off, and put them on.....

New words this week

Bear is now copying every word that is said and it sounds correct! He chatters away and sings to himself, when he does this most of the words are just sounds but new words used in context are;

Poo. When he's done a poo, shame it's not everytime! Just once or twice.
Star. He recognises the star shape in all its disguises and says star


Bear is really getting into copying actions, as in the above Rabbit song or touching his nose when the Tombliboo's sing their song.

He also say 'bbl bbl' and puts his finger to his ear. That's the noise the kettle makes, it bubbles and then we wait for it to go ping!

His Galt pop up toy is colour coded. I showed him the stick men and the colours and showed him where they should go and he put lots into the correct hole! He even took the yellow man and put it next to his big yellow duck. When I praised him he clapped his hands. I'm sure he recognises colours just have to learn the names.

Bears cute couldn't resist
Naughtiness. Oh he was so naughty on Friday morning! Deliberately throwing things or banging them against the TV. Turning the washing machine off multiple times. Usually a quick reminder not to do these things stops him, or I distract him. But not on Friday. He only stopped when he was removed from the area or had the item taken from him. Guess what happened next, yep lots of tears and arched back. Funnily after his nap he was good as gold again!


Bear can understand multiple and complex directions such as 'pick up the red car and put it into the box' or 'what have you got? Rubbish? Take it to the kitchen and put it in the rubbish bag'. Although he's half way to the bag before I finish the sentence.

It was a good week, lots of fun, but Bear ate well and is completely over his cold. He's still teething with one tooth just trying to come through.

Oh and the lady in Asda said he was the cutest pudding she had ever seen!
