Dot writes: Hugh is getting a lot more mobile and enjoys exploring his surroundings. Our flat affords him many exciting opportunities to play and investigate. For example, the VHS and DVD players.
And my handbag.
And the bookcases. (The book he has gone for is an Illustrated London News anthology entitled The Great Archaeologists. Is this an omen?)
And, since in the last two weeks he has learned to pull up from sitting to standing, he’s no longer restricted to the bottom shelf. You may be relieved to know that Ken has screwed this bookcase to the wall.
For rather less hazardous standing practice we try to point Hugh in the opposite direction, towards the sofa on the other side of the room. However, he tends to turn himself around again.
And here he is just looking cute and mischievous (with his climbing frame/milkbar in the background) – but there are signs that in a minute he’ll be off.
