Well, it's not quite a reliable replacement yet, but I think we're on the way. he's certainly sucking it a lot when he's awake.
In other news, he did roll over a couple of times the other day (front to back), but then forgot how.
D'Arcy is on school holidays this week and next, so I'm trying to think of amusing diversions for him, without much success. We might go down the coast a bit in the second week, depending on how we go this week. He's been a bit sick again lately. This winter term is so hard on young kids, it goes on for ever with no public holidays to give them a break, and they all get sick. D's teacher said that there were only 14 in the class for the last couple of days (out of 23)!
Having the MIL here has been good, very low-key, and she's thrilled to see her grandson. He's the only grandchild she will ever have, so it's pretty special for her. I'll try to get some photos of her with him for the American relatives to see

D'Arcy reported that he got $2.20 from the tooth fairy, that her name is Veronique, and that her favourite colour, like D'Arcy's, is black. These were answers to questions he asked her in the letter he wrote her.

D'Arcy lost a tooth this morning (at 6 am) so he took it to his dad's house today, and he's written a note to the Tooth Fairy, apparently, so we'll see how it goes. I've got off lightly with the tooth fairy recently. Almost all his teeth have fallen out at his dad's.

D'Arcy has been exposed to the hilarity that is ICHC. Actually they work well on him, as his literacy level is such that reading them makes more immediate sense to him than standard English,and unlike adults his brain hasn't become fixed to standard English spelling yet.

My mum has been here, and we've made a big mess in the guise of cleaning things up getting ready for Grandma Joyce to come. It is very good.
Also in the good category - Erik has been asleep for 2½ hours this morning. Showing some signs of waking up soon, but not there yet. So I've been looking through cooking magazines for nice things to eat over the next week and a half. Lots of fish.
Ooh, Erik is making his "I'm waking up" squeaky noises.

There was a picnic at D'Arcy's school today for their literacy festival, but it was freezing and cloudy, so we didn't stay for long. Long enough to eat a sausage roll and some vegies and hummous.
