Bagua

[imported from livejournal and backdated]

Tao's started adding different noises to his repertoire (currently comprising of some adorable cooing noises, squeals, screeches and "ahgoo" and it's variants).

Strangely enough the most prominent sound is "bagua". Which I realised after he'd been going "bababababababababa" with various intonations followed by "bua" then "gua". Then he put it together, muttering "bagua" to himself.

Currently he's making weird throaty warbling rattly gargling noises. They sound almost angry but every time I turn to him he's smiling. Odd boy. A few gargles later he let me know he wanted to be picked up. He might be ready for another nap soon.

Now I've got him and he's tryng to get my water. He wants to get into everything :) No idea why everyone keeps telling me t's troublesiome, I'm finding the process fascinating.

He's keen

Tiny's been able to sit assisted since he was about three months old or so. He takes a keen interest in the world around him. He's currently 4.5 months old and he's been more and more assertively interested in this food thing that Josh and I keep eating, as opposed to just passively interested as he was before (when Terry suggested we should just give him a tiny bit of apple juice to give him a taste and to which I responded he has the rest of his life to get tastes and now was not the time).

Updates

Quick updates while Tiny is asleep and just before I try to get on with a bit of work before going to bed myself:

  • he's rolling over front to back both ways (hasn't worked out how to go from back to front yet)

  • he commando-crawled forwards a little bit

  • he likes being tossed up and down (well he likes the motion of being lifted up and dropped semi-rapidly, but he's not tossed)

  • he's 8kg or so



There was probably a whole pile of stuff that I wanted to write about but completely unsurprisingly they have all decided to run away and join the navy (or something equally drastic). Should try writing things down when I think of them rather than trying to cram it into my brain along with the rest of stuff I'm trying to think about :)

Alternate title: Martial Artsy Psychoconcepts as coined by my friend Jeremy :)

Illustration from when the idea was for Perth to be a megalopolis with towering buildings and Zara (who is still one of the best thieves in Perth) is anime armed to the teeth.
