Frankie - August 2014

Frankie - August 2014

Frankie is twenty months old now and full of life. He sleeps well at night – if Pats the Cat doesn’t disturb him – she woke him at 5:00 this morning! Mornings are usually busy times and he has a nap in the afternoon. Well, that’s the theory. Often he experiences a resurgence of energy when he goes to bed and spends the time he should be sleeping practising his songs and words, talking to his toys, shrieking with laughter and romping up and down his cot. How do we know this? Apart from the noise (!) we have a camera focused on him and thus we can see when he has divested himself of his nappy and can rush upstairs to remedy matters. He now has ‘going to bed’ trousers which he has not yet managed to take off though he watches closely when he is dressed in them to see if he can work out the magic formula!

He has great fun with his little cousin Isla (our great-granddaughter) who is four months younger than him. They don’t see each other very often – Isla lives quite a long way away and when they do meet they don’t exactly play together, rather alongside each other with their paths crossing, or more likely colliding! They both love music and dance with enormous energy. Bath time is entertaining for both of them, with the bath full of books and toys. 

Sometimes, Frankie needs a little distraction/relaxation and then he sits on my knee and watches Postman Pat or Thomas the Tank Engine. Postman Pat appears to be outstripping Thomas in the favourites stakes at present.


He had a haircut today. Can you see the difference in the ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos?

  2. What a handsome young man. Isn't it funny....how worn out and weary you are is in direct proportion to how much energy they expend.

  6. Oh, what a handsome boy he is! Wonderful photos. I like the before and after the haircut photos. He looks so much more 'grown up' after the photo. I always feel a little bit sad when the hair gets cut for the first time.

    1. I know what you mean about the haircut - somehow they're not quite the babies they were.

  7. He's so cute. We have a 2 year old grandson, and I think 2 is the most adorable age of all.

    1. Two certainly is a wonderful age - the age of real discovery!

  8. I thought I'd left a comment here. Frankie certainly is a cutie and I love that first photo where he appears to be running. I love watching toddlers when they discover running.

    1. It's hilarious when toddlers run - so much energy, so much concentration.

  9. I think I couldn't handle a toddler day in day out anymore ! It was nice to see Toby over the weekend, and now he is nearly 4 and has become a little boy. Still too young (say the parents) to spent a week with us maybe when he is 15 and I am in my 80, lol !

    1. A nice age - even better when he can look after his own needs, say around 6:-)
