Friday 28/09/90 – Aeroplanes

DIARY NOTES – In 1990, 23 years ago today this is what I wrote in the diary.

I heard an aeroplane flying over very low and ran outside to show Hughan, who was in the garden, and he was looking up, watching it.

I felt this was great! Hughan had a lot to babble about. He was quite excited.

Hughan also played with the new Duplo set. I put some water in the Duplo bath for him to wash the Duplo  people.

He enjoyed playing. He asked for “more” (producing the jug – for more water). I gave him some more water, and he put some water in the toilet and sat the Duplo boy and the loo. He was very pleased with himself.

We saw a wild, domestic cats in the garden in the morning. I took Hughan and we watched quietly.

Hughan loves cats. Afterwards we went into the house and I showed him all the cat ornaments that we have.

Hughan is trying to say “meow”.

We also had a great time with Hughan’s new tea set that a friend gave him.

These are some pictures of Hughan and Vil playing with the tea set.

Wednesday 26/09/90 – shopping

I took Hughan shopping with me in the morning, which he loves. I find he wants to go off and look at things, which I am finding quite hard. He doesn’t seem to understand I must keep him in my sight.

Vil had afternoon activities so I went to see a friend with Hughan. Hughan is much better today.

Hughan is not at all well. He’s slept five hours today and it he seemed much better, when he woke up in the afternoon.

When a friend arrived at the house today, Hughan turned around to her calling him. She was very impressed!

Monday 24/09/90 – Duplo Playhouse

DIARY NOTES – In 1990, 23 years ago today this is what I wrote in the diary.

We had a lovely lesson today with the Duplo house set. It has a toilet, hand basin, shower and bath in the bathroom, bunk beds, beds, dressing table and chair with a lamp in the bedroom.

In the lounge it has a lounge suite, television, standard lamp, table, wall unit with draws that open and close, and in the kitchen there is a stove, sink, kettle, pot and wall units with draws.

All the interleague doing doors between the rooms open and close, the house has a chimney and an aerial on the roof.

I took Hughan around the house showing him all the different things. He loved it.

In the set is a mummy, daddy, boy and girl and a granny. So we have lots of language!! to talk about. He was very interested in the aerial on the roof.

We had a visit to the doctor in the afternoon as Hughan has a runny nose!

I finished icing Hughan’s cake. Hughan loves his truck, so I decided to copy it as best as I could. He was very pleased with it.

He had his birthday party in the afternoon and enjoyed trying to blow his candles. We gave him the Duplo house set that arrived from UK.

These are some pictures taken during his birthday party of  Hughan with his birthday cake we made for him.

Monday 17/09/90 – Using his voice

DIARY NOTES – In 1990, 23 years ago today this is what I wrote in the diary.

Hughan’s play school teacher is away, so no school today for Hughan, so I took him to go and the a friend. Hughan is saying “more” all the time, when he wants more on something.

Also “up” and “hi” and “bye, bye” he is also saying quite well or “bye”.

We were also comparing colours, matching the same colours for our little lesson.
