Letter to Tricky - Four months old

Dear Tricky,

Again another eventful month, young man! I suppose I should get used to it – everything is eventful for you as you discover new things every day.

You are one of the happiest babies I have ever seen. You have a smile that is so fantastic I'm surprised you haven't been recruited for a nappy commercial – you might be thinking “But Mum, what about the big scar on my noggin?” Well it didn't seem to set Harry Potter back any, so I think you'll be fine.

I'm obviously very funny because you keep laughing at me! It means that your giggle is fast becoming the soundtrack to my life. Other than the raspberries, the things that make you laugh are going on the fitball, being held high in the air and kisses on your cheeks. But the absolute guaranteed way of getting you to talk or smile is by singing “Open, Shut Them”. I don't know if it's the song, the actions that go along with it, or a combination of both, but you become so excited whenever I sing it.

You really seem to like story time already, which makes your Dad and I feel like we must at least be doing one thing right! Your favourite book (or is it your Dad's?) is “That's not my Pirate” and we read it to you every day. Unfortunately you're already interested in TV too. It's my fault – I put it on in the mornings to keep you entertained so I can have a shower while you stare at the bright colours and coo along to the fun songs of Play School. Luckily for Mummy, Jay La'gaia is one of the hosts - there is no reason we can't both enjoy it.

You always seem to turn on the charm when I need it the most – like at 4.00am after a tough night of trying to get you to sleep you'll grin and talk to me and I just melt. Or when the house is a mess and there is no chance of having dinner at a reasonable hour, you'll squeal with delight and it makes it all worthwhile.

Thank you, my lovely, chubby-cheeked boy. You bring so much joy to our lives.

Love Mummy xxx
