What a difference a year makes: ask Gerry Giraffe


Seeing Oliver so confident as he rode on Gerry the Giraffe up at my Mum's house this weekend, was another reminder of how quickly he is growing up. Contrast his confident riding style of now (above) with his enthusiastic but less confident style of a year ago (below), when his ride involved tightly gripping Daddy's shirt to be sure he was safe.

Hold on tight

Or so I thought...

When I came to check the video of the two occasions, it seems he was quite confident in the saddle a year ago (above) once he had got the knack of it.

A year on (below) he is even more confident - even pressing the start button for himself - though quite what he is jabbering on about I honestly couldn't tell you!
