We have eight teeth now. He is being good and doesn't bite other kids , or anyone, except his dad. He has decided my shoulder is his chew toy and has even drawn blood when I'm carrying him.

We had a spammer resurrect the thread. I deleted the post, but not before Batty had responded. ;)

Harry's first spam attack. I'm so proud. They grow up so fast .

My niece was given a smart phone and a tablet last Christmas. She was three. I'm sorry but that's bloody stupid . I gave out hell to my brother for it. Harry will be a hell of a lot older before he gets anything like that.

i disagree about the tablet, there are loads of very educational apps out there to help their development, as long as they are supervised and dont stagnate in front of it i personally think its good for them to get used to tech and learn whilst they do it
measuring intelligence by exam results is like measuring digestion by turd length

Oops! I only belatedly wished Sjoerd a happy birthday, & was so keen not to miss Harry's, that I didn't clock the date! :oops:
