well, as William is getting ever more mobile - he can sit upright, and has just about got the hang of crawling - Michele decided it was time to try him out with one of the things James loved to do. well, James and just about everyone else on earth. what would that be? why, sitting in an inflatable pool full of plastic balls, of course!
we kept the flash switched off on the camera, and unfortunately it seems that has led to most of the pics we took being somewhat blurry! oh well, i am sure you can get the idea of what he's up to with it!
whereas William rather liked sitting in the pool and throwing the balls around, he also quite liked the idea of trying to climb out of it too! we really do have to keep an eye on him at all times - if he's not trying to eat it, then he's trying to climb on or over it!
James might be a bit too young to sit and remember the good old days of when he sat in his ball pool, but he's certainly not old enough to want to jump in and play with William!
James has been a bit ill of late, a rather nasty gastro infection. at the risk of evoking memories of celebrated comedy routines by Billy Connolly and indeed the great The Mary Whitehouse Experience, the doctors do all seem to agree that "there's a bug going round"; a bug which presumably took a shine to James' digestive system.
oh well, a few days of medicine and he seems to be over the worst if not all of it!!
we shall do our best to aim for less blurry pictures next time!!!
be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
