Baby talk: A minute in the life of an 8 month old

Baby talk: a minute in the life of an 8 month old
I have no idea what's going on. 

I swear, one minute I'm sitting happily in my highchair, the next - I'm flying through the air. I wish she would decide on where she wants me.

Hang on, are those are my toes?

I want that sock. 

Out of my way, woman! LET GO! I promise, if you don't let go of me, I'm regurging all over that nice top you put on specifically for Nana's visit.

Hmm. It doesn't taste as nice as rusk, but I reckon if I keep shoving stuff in my mouth, it won't be that long before I get fed again. Maybe I'll add in a loud wail for good measure.

She's putting me down. Where the hell am I now?

Ooh, shiny... is that a face staring back at me? Haha - it's funny. And now it's smiling! I want it, I want it... 

Shit - I'm falling! 

OUCH, my nose. Oh my God, I'm dying. This has to be the worst pain in the world. In fact, I don't think I'm ever going to feel pain like this again in my life. This has to be the worst pain anyone has ever experienced, ever. Worse than toothache. Worse than jabs. Definitely worse than what my mum felt when she pushed me out. Not as bad as nappy rash though. 

Nothing hurts more than nappy rash.

Teeheehee, I got a cuddle. That's better. I like cuddles. Especially when they lead to food.

But I'm not hungry right now. Instead I feel a bit... a bit like I need to fart. I think I need to push it out. Here goes...

Aah, that's better.

Hmm, maybe I needed to poop too. Oops! Does she really have to make a big deal about it though? I'm not bothered. 

Whoa, what is that smellIt can't be me. I'm 99% sure it's not me. It's probably her. Yep, it's definitely her and absolutely not me.

Hang on, where's that music coming from? 

Get off me, woman! I want to play with that toy. Let me at it. LET GO!

Look, I’ve already made clear the consequences of getting in my way. We don’t need to go there again. 

Seriously, I'm going to get that toy even if I have to crawl my sorry ass over there.


See! I did it! Haha, that got a round of applause. And now to milk it with a cute smile…

I'm such a pro.

Oh crap. She's getting the mat out. Looks like I won't get out of a nappy change after all. Well, if she thinks I’m just going to lie there, she’s got another think coming.

LET GO OF ME, woman!

Ok, that’s it. You can’t say you weren’t warned.

Welcome back, lunch...
