TRICK OR TREAT?



Who's this little chap coming to stay with his Grandpa?



Why it's baby Peter, who's come to play trick or treat . . . 

Actually he doesn't know any tricks yet but give him time !! 


"Guess what I am wearing, Grandpa!"

"I am a Happy Little Pumpkin, and my Mummy dressed me up in my brand new outfit !

. . . . . read me a story from my book, please Grandpa!"


"Here, take a closer look at my Pumpkin outfit!"



Well Peter was indeed a very happy little pumpkin all morning until his Mummy picked him up.  This afternoon he is meeting some other babies and apparently he is quite a little charmer.  He waves to other babies and talks to them . . . .  he is quite the little socialiser. 

Back to this morning, he played and pulled himself onto his feet and practised soft landings before he finally takes the plunge and starts walking.  Currently he propels himself around shuffle-bottoming although I expect it won't be long before he walks.  I doubt whether he will bother with crawling.  He is one year old, plus one week.


"Hold on Grandpa, I'm coming to stand up!"


"Heave! . . . just a bit further!"


"There . . . easy peasy!! 
Now I'll shuffle across to my high chair . . and pull myself up  again there."


"Now Grandpa show me that silly banana outfit you wear sometimes!"

"OK if you promise you won't eat me . .   I know you like bananas."


"Oh you are such a card, Grandpa!  No wonder you get such funny comments . . . "



My fears of being eaten might have been justified because for lunch he ate cheese on toast, a whole banana, a whole satsuma and half an apple . . . and he drank a beaker full of milk.


. . . and then he was most interested in sound and echo technology and experimented for a while making noises into this bottle . . . he thought it was so funny . . . and it was.


"Listen to this, Grandpa!"


"Listen to this tune . . . you hum it and I'll play it . . . . ok!"


Just look at those big blue eyes!
How can anyone refuse him anything?

As usual it was delightful day and  it was such a treat to have him, and he was so happy and well behaved . . . . good boy!

________________

I've just remembered there is a rather peculiar nursery rhyme:

Peter, Peter,  pumpkin-eater
Had a wife and couldn't keep her.
He put her in a pumpkin shell
And there he kept her very well.


Very strange how these nursery rhymes originate.

  1. Serve you right if you get stuck in your banana outfit and have to wear it permanently!
    Enough to scare poor Peter to death, though he doesn't look phased in the slightest!
    He is gorgeous, even though he is pretending to be a pumpkin!

  6. Pumpkin is a term of endearment here...and Peter IS a little pumpkin. I love the look of concentration on his wee face when he's trying to stand.

  24. I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

    1. I am leaving this here even though it truly deserves to be confines to the trash bin.

      I know a number of charming American ladies and they are certainly not inferior to any lady anywhere on the planet. They are not superior either ~ ladies are universally lovely if you treat them right. Perhaps you should take a few lessons from somewhere on how to treat a lady and you might realise that for yourself . . .
      I am truly amazed by this . . .

    2. Boycott American women? Never. Someone needs to be less of a victim, is all. ;)

    So happy for you, Eddie.

  27. Hi, Eddie. Just stopped by to see how you're doing and to perhaps leave (a tad early) Christmas greeting. But I see you haven't blogged in some time (I would have known this sooner, of course, if I had visited more often and the shame is on me.)

    Anyway, Happy Christmas to you! And may God's beneficence be clearly yours in the New Year!
