One year

Even though Gus had no idea, it felt like a birthday today. That little buzz in the air that makes things feel special. Emails coming in, calls with songs…

We didn’t do anything out of the ordinary. Gus has a cold so was a bit dopey, red cheeked and more snuggly than usual. It also meant more reading and at one point I asked, ‘where’s the kitty?’ in the picture… and he pointed right to it. And later to another one in another book. We had no idea he could point let alone pick out a cat.

He’s taller these days- or more sure on his feet -so he can reach things on the top of the tables -like a handful of quarters to stuff in the mouth. He gets a gleam in his eye when you tell him a joke or right before he pulls his socks off. And he likes to walk outside.

  1. What a clever gus!
    A couple of things I forgot to add to daniella’s list..
    Clothes pegs, 50c pieces, crawling like a sand crab with one leg and dragging the other behind her most efficiently, thrashing her arms with (or biting) mr sheep, mr duck and mr pig (we’re as good at naming soft toys as cats..), taking things out of the lowest pantry shelf, turning dishwasher and washing machine on or off just after I’ve done the opposite, dancing, swings, slides, staircases,tunnels, laundry. ..
    And to mine – leonard cohen at a day on the green in the hunter valley, watching her sleep (of course!), weekends when daddy’s home, swimming, 7000days…

  2. Hurrah! Happy Birthday Gus.
    Gus has a little bday box (from LFL, Tim, Al and me) on its way from Oz but I am sorry to say that it’s dreadfully late (all my fault!!!).

    Wish you better and have a great birthday Gus
