Hello everyone, I'm Amelia, known to all my fans as Millie, so you may call me that too. I thought it was time I had a go at this blogging, I heard Grandma saying she puts her foot in her mouth on here sometimes and I'm a champion at getting both my feet into my mouth, so I should be good. Also, as you can see from my photograph, I am doing research for my doctorate at UCL and I need some practice at typing for when I write my thesis.
I was chatting to my chums at the baby clinic last week and they told me that grandmas are good at 'dancing attendance' on babies but mine doesn't seem to know about that; she started off well enough on Monday morning with a bit of flamenco but things have got slower and today she can hardly manage a slow foxtrot. Actually, she is lying in a heap on the floor right now as she couldn't seem to make it to the chair. Don't worry though, I have this bit of string tied to her wrist and when I want something, all I have to do is pull it and she jumps up. That was one of the tips from my chums!
I learned a few more tricks from them: every time you hear your grandma pour a cup of tea, open the bathroom door or sit on a sofa, you just give a little scream and she comes running. It works every time! I can promise you that my grandma hasn't finished a single hot drink for four days and when Mummy comes home from work the first thing G'ma says is 'Quick, take her, I just have to get to the loo!'
Some of my best tricks are to do with feeding and nappies, I think they are really funny but you might like to look away now. When I'm all nicely bathed and dressed and have just finished my bottle, I like to bring the whole lot back up, carefully avoiding the muslin round my neck and aiming straight for Grandma's skirt. The other one I like is where I show her how I won the Super Pooper Award; that's a really good one because I get an extra play in the bath afterwards and Grandma falls down in that funny heap on the floor.
I'm having a great time but don't tell any of the Grownups. I like to keep them practising their dancing!
Lots of love from Millie xxx
