Saturday, 28th December 2013 – Swing, Bus Travel Tactics
Gio imitates actions such as head-shaking.
Went for a birthday bash at Under The Radar.
Gio enjoyed swinging and also bouncing a bit in a bouncing castle.
We are to travel by bus tomorrow to Malindi (via Mombasa), a journey of about 598km (about 373 miles) or 11 hours.
There were various ladies at the bash. One of them, a doctor, said when traveling with a young child, she gave the child a dose of Piriton. The child slept through most of the journey. She declined to give a prescription for Gio, since he is still under 1 year of age.
Sunday, 29th December 2013 – To Malindi
The journey to Malindi went reasonably well. No major fuss from Gio.
As we neared Mombasa, he predictably started sweating.

31st December 2013 – Protection of Young.
From time to time, wasps would fly into the house we were staying in. I was careful not to provoke them.
Gio was sitting in his high chair. One wasp flew towards Gio and was hovering near him. Knowing Gio, I feared he would attempt to touch it, and the wasp would sting him. I backhanded the hapless insect, sending it flying in a dizzy spiral. Ok, not quite. I did backhand it away. I don’t know if it got dizzy or not.
My wife was very amused that I, who till then seemed scared of wasps, had attacked this one so quickly. Protection of young, dear wife.
Gio nowadays participates in getting dressed – stretches arms and legs etc.

Gio did not like being in the pool water.
