Oliver quite often asks whichever one of us gets him up in the morning where the other parent is. I walk in to get him only to hear "Mama?" Equally, Hayley is often greeted with a non-stop babbling of "Dada, Dada, Dada".

As I came up the stairs this morning I heard Hayley talking to Oliver. Then I heard Oliver emit a long, loud "Dadaaaaaaa!" Hayley has been teaching him to shout me when he wants something!

Up to now he has been happy to play in his cot or snooze when he wakes up early in the morning. Even if he wakes at 6am he will chat to his toys, play and doze until we go in nearer 7am. I fear we may be about to see the end of such a civilised start to the day!
