For his birthday we went for a long walk along an amazingly sunny and warm (for the time of year) Southend seafront... which he loved! This was topped off with a visit to the Sealife Centre... which he hated! The first sight of a slippery old fish had him screaming, and he didn't let up! We are currently nervously waiting to see if we've broken the world record for 'Shorted amount of time spent in a Sealife Centre', and are really hoping that our total of ten minutes will be enough to win us that coveted prize. Yes sir, ten minutes!! And that was literally just the length of time to walk from the entrance to the exit carrying a screaming kid! Even a brief stop off at the Clown Fish to point out "hey look Nemo" did nothing to cheer him up! The moment we got outside he was fine again... one of the best sixteen quids I've ever spent!
But the above episode is actually very uncharacteristic of the boy, and as a rule he's a very happy, smiley, funny fella, and an absolute joy to be with.... Happy Birthday Son.
(Actually, he's still only 1 in these two pictures - taken back in August, but I really like em!!)
