Learning my Apple Baby Cat

I started learning my letters a few weeks ago. Most people like to start at the beginning of the alphabet. But why be conventional? I decided to start with W. I think its the most interesting sounding letter. It made me giggle the first time Daddy said it, and showed me in my Yak-Yak book (that's what I call it - every letter has its animal).

Then I learnt Em for Mouse (or Mummy), and Ecks for Fox (I think they cheated a bit with that one. Didn't they know about the Xerus?).

My favourite game to play with Daddy was pointing to the letters and getting him to say them. Then I discovered that he knew a song about them. So I added a new command to my vocabulary: "Sing!".

The other day, Granny bought me a new toy. It's a big picture with the letters on, and when I press them, it speaks them out for me. I think that's called cheating, Daddy!

I pick up my little purple shopping basket and walk into the kitchen where Mummy is doing the washing up.

"Bye, Bye", I say.

Mummy turns to look at me.

"Shopping", I explain. "Milk".

I hold out my hand. "Money?"

In the Dark

I've recently discovered these amazing things called lightswitches. Don't you know what a lightswitch is? It's a button for turning the dark off.

Recently the sun has been too lazy to get out of bed in the morning - I think it must be a little bit cold, like me. So when Mummy comes into my room, the place is full of dark. "Dark", I say to Mummy, and she agrees, and presses the magic button. Then all the dark runs away, and hides under the bed, and under my cot.
