For serious

I know that I haven't had a huge amount of big picture experience, or the benefits of a 'traditional' upper class education, but that felt like a poor reason to not start using my influence for the causes that really matter.
Let's talk a little about Peace - as far as I can tell it seems like a pretty cool concept. I know as well as anyone, life - gets - busy. Faxes, emails, entertaining, travel, always being 'on' - you're preaching to the choir. But we all have little opportunities to make a peaceful difference. 
This is a picture of me at a DANCE PEACE RALLY in my bedroom - you should have been there, it was powerful (next time).
Remember, Love rules without rules. Peace!

2 functional arms?

What a morning! This morning I went to see some professional blue people at my old stomping ground - The Hospitall right. They wanted to see how my broken arm was healing. Doc unwrapped the splint, had a look, and was seemingly bored with how well it was coming along. His instructions were to 'use it like you do your other arm'. It's a little crooked, but he assured my parents that it will be perfect, and we won't even remember which arm it was.  
For nostalgia, we shared a moment looking at my x-rays from when I was an hour old - if I could only talk to that little guy, and reassure him that everything was gonna be fine. 
We have to go back in 3 months to ensure there's no nerve damage, but I told him that 3 months from now, I'll probably be too busy signing autographs for my sweet guitar playing.  
When we got back, I had my first proper bath, sans splint. It was actually kinda rad - I have no issues with the water.

I forgot to mention that we had a lovely family stroll around the block a couple of days ago. To be honest I slept for most of it, but the parts I remember, I found to be quite refreshing. (Check out my sweet hoody from my man Keith. And yes, those are pandas on my feet - just doing my part to raise awareness.)
My GrandmaBon is over today, which is lovely. And there was another Jen here yesterday who helped my Mum. Imagine... 2 Jens - madness. I've noticed that Dad has disappeared during the day, the last 2 days. Strange that - can't imagine what he's up to.
I'm told that tomorrow we head back to the hospital for the blue people to look at my arm again. This will be my second x-ray in less than 3 weeks (I sure hope they're covering my bits when they take those). I'll let you know how it goes.

In the beginning...

So far it's been a wild ride to say the least. I had a rough couple of days 2 weekends ago, but got to know a bunch of my family a little better, and made some lovely new friends. (It seems that people are forever traveling with gifts - I swear I haven't met a single person without one.)
I should really start by saying thank you to everyone. I've had some wonderful help during this vital time of development. People are helping feed my parents (and therefore me), I've got a lovely wardrobe already, and have talked to a lot of interesting new friends.
In terms of an update, I'm eating and sleeping, screaming and burping, pooping and thinking, staring and kicking, and meeting and greeting. I was born 10lbs 3oz, but at today's weigh-in ceremony I managed to pack on another pound! I'm pretty sure my arm is on the mend - although I don't ever worry about it as it seems my parents do more than enough for all of us.
On the subject of 'the parentals', they seem pretty nice - although at times they're a little slow on the uptake (I don't think they get enough sleep).
More soon, at the moment I fancy a bite...
