Pacifier – no more!

Me and my ex-pacifier

Me and my ex-pacifier

This picture is valid no more! I have decided to renounce all pacifying activity. Why? Because I think I have reached a maturity level where such childish behaviors are not tolerated any more.

They simply aren’t enough to soothe me although according to my father’s accounts he has been using them until the age of twenty-one. (But I have learnt to be more careful and not to believe everything that my Dad says!) Anyhow these days I engage in eating hands and pineapple instead.

Passing the four months threshold!

Thinking about the future

Thinking about the future

So yes, it is true … I am four months young  now! It’s the third of  a year, a semester for a university student and I am only eight months away from my first birthday. (Actually it should be  the second birthday, since the first one is the day I was born on. But I guess adults do their counting differently).

I’m very much looking forward to be able to start walking on my own two feet. I can sit more or less upright these days. And I play with certain objects. I like to touch things that feel soft or that are really shiny. Things and objects catch my attention more than before though some things move suddenly and for no reason like branches on a tree and they sometimes scare me.

But apart from that I have learnt over these four crucial months to say more words and to  smile more. I am also beginning to understand my parents a little more, or is it that they understand me better? Well, communication I am told is difficult no matter what your age is!

They call me Mister Ah-gooh

Ay, ay Captain!

Ay, ay Captain!

This is what my parents sometimes call me, Mr. Ah-gooh. I guess it was based on my first words or sounds that came out of my mouth. What they don’t know is that we babies still cannot control our pronunciation too good.

What I meant to say was this: I am the wild pirate of the seas and am looking for the treasure hidden deep somewhere in the apartment. And, arg, I will find it soon enough once I know how to crawl. For now, I have to be satisfied with sustaining my head and occasionally sitting upright. But you just wait and see, Captain Sparrow!
