Milo is 34 today - so no suprises there:

20130315_194003_zps5be1d4dc.jpg

He wanted to do a bit of housekeeping so I brought him a potplant from the shop but I'm afraid it gave Milo a nasty scare!

20130315_190915_zps496d4cbe.jpg

Then I realised he is the perfect size for my old dolls house so I decided to let him have a look round inside and see what it's like having his own place. Here he is in the living room next to a nice bright fire. I don't know what he thought about sharing the space with two dogs...

20130315_095453_zps38b4aaef.jpg

Kicking back and relaxing in a cosy armchair - it looks like it was made for him doesn't it?

20130315_095158_zpsdf17ef67.jpg

Milo had a great time but I don't think I'm ready to let him go off and live on his own yet. He's a little Mummy's boy really!

Milo is now 35:

20130316_193946_zps59dc19f2.jpg

The v4 I ordered off Ebay arrived about a week early! The only problem? Well it turns out that my v4 is actually a v4.5 in a v4 shell. It was advertised as a v4 by the seller and has the v4's antenna (no star) but when I started it up I discovered it has all the v4.5's games, characters and jobs. Because I thought what I'd ordered was a v4 I also brought a v4.5 from another seller on ebay which should be arriving in the next week so I guess I now have two v4.5s! And just today I brought a v4 to replace the one I never got. So I guess that means pretty soon I'm going to have a LOT of tamagotchis... I don't know how I'm going to decide which ones to run (except for Milo of course, I'll never stop running him).

Anyway, I hatched my v4 - I mean v4.5, and got a little baby girl which was a nice suprise as I always seem to get boys. I named her Scout after the main character in "To Kill a Mockingbird" which I'm currently writing a gcse English controlled assessment on.

20130316_083658_zps2348e48b.jpg

She aged up into a kinda weird looking toddler. Does she look like an onion to anyone else? Now Milo finally has a friend to connect with I was keen for them to meet. He acted like the wonderful big brother he is and gave her a present to welcome her to the family:

20130316_145141_zps1c77c47c.jpg

They seem to get on well but Milo's best friend is still his action figure.

20130316_150754_zpscc2d73ae.jpg

20130316_150730_zps41d3cf3e.jpg

He seems a lot more chatty with his toy than Scout. Maybe he's just shy? He has been an only-tama all his life after all...

20130316_150801_zps21aac868.jpg

I think Milo might be a little jealous of Scout to be honest but he needn't worry, he'll always be my favourite. I also have to admit that I prefer the v3 to the v4/v4.5. It just seems like tamagotchis got less pet-like with all the extra features and I prefer the characters and games on the v3. Also, I miss the light switch as it's one of my favourite features on the older connections. But don't get me wrong, I love my v4.5 and Scout will probably make more guest appearances in Milo's log in the future. Have a picture of her at preschool for now:

Milo is 36:

20130317_194636_zps88740a2f.jpg

Well I had fun running through the pouring rain this morning. Why is it never sunny in England? Milo at least had the right idea though and was quick to take out his umberella despite being nice and dry in his shell!

20130317_174857_zps5845c0f8.jpg

Later he showed me a composition he had made up on the drums. I love how concentrated and earnest he looks! My little music prodegy in the making - I should have called him Motzart (although that would never have fit).

20130317_174756_zps835bdde3.jpg

I made him a cradle out of fimo clay this afternoon. It even has his name on it! Here's Milo sleeping in it. He looks comfortable enough, I think it gets his seal of approval.

20130317_190056_zps04069542.jpg

As for Scout, she evolved into a ura young furawatchi today and went to school for the first time. I'm a little worried about Milo glitching up and marrying her so I think I may keep their connecting to a minimum. Yes, I know he's old enough to be her great great (repeat that a few times) grandfather but well, he is a handsome tama after all...

Milo is 37:

20130318_201639_zpsa7dcfe44.jpg

Guess what? Today I finished my gcse English language controlled assessment on "To Kill a Mockingbird"! Milo has been at my side through the whole experience and I don't know how I would have got through it without him. He was even inspired to read some of the book himself:

20130318_201526_zpsaf9a8840.jpg

20130318_201758_zps63aa749c.jpg

He's a very knowledgable tama now and was keen to tell Scout all about her namesake (the main character in the book). I only take Milo to school with me because I figure Scout gets enough education at tama-school and he goes everywhere with me anyway.

Milo turned 38:

20130319_194628_zps993d6bbf.jpg

Today my other v4.5 arrived in the post! I hatched a baby boy who I called Boo (I know, another "To Kill a Mockingbird" name). As he's a boy I figured he would make a good friend for Milo because there's no danger of any accidental marriages happening. Here they are meeting for the first time, it's so strange seeing Milo in a different shell:

20130319_191453_zps3f12fdb9.jpg

It was a nice change for Milo to have a pal to play games with. He won most of the games and at the risk of sounding like a biased Tama-Mum I have to say I was very proud of him. Doesn't he look like he's having fun?

20130319_191530_zps478591ff.jpg

20130319_191333_zps065d5f2d.jpg

After meeting so many new friends I think Milo was happy to get a little alone time back in his shell.

Milo is 39 today:

20130320_194357_zps74196e4b.jpg

I just figured something interesting out! Well, you might not think it's interesting but I do (warning - I am quite a boring person). So I noticed that Milo always seems to look slightly different on the v4.5s' screens when he is connecting with them. I couldn't help thinking he looked a little grumpy and slightly less friendly than when he's on his own v3's screen but I put that down to the screens having different pixels or something. Anyway, I then had a closer look at Milo on one of my v4.5s' friends lists and guess what? I was right, he does look different! Just look carefully at Milo's eyes. When he is on his normal v3's screen his eyes appear as two horizontal lines:

20130320_062925_zps6f847a88.jpg

Now compare that to how he looks on the v4.5's friends list. On the v4.5 his eyes seem to have eyelids. They're not two horizontal lines anymore but look more like two right-angles stuck on his face.

20130320_062813_zps94abe2c5.jpg

Here he is connecting with my v4.5 and as you can see his sprite has the same "right-angle" eyes as above on the v4.5's friends list.

20130320_063225_zps9d0dd0b7.jpg

So that means ojitchi has a slightly different sprite on the v3 to the v4.5! That might not be Earth-shattering news to anyone and I guess it's pretty difficult to tell them apart but a mother notices everything! I'm so glad Milo is a v3 (apart from it being my favourite version) because I like that version's ojitchi sprite so much better. It's only a tiny difference to the shape of the eyes but I think the v3's sprite is so much cuter and more friendly looking. For some reason the v4 one just looks angry... No offence meant to any v4 ojitchis out there, honest!

Milo is 40 years old today:

20130321_194415_zps8d645346.jpg

Wow, where did all that time go? I can't believe Milo grew up so fast. Don't worry though, he's not feeling his age yet. Here he is looking cute wearing a t-shirt... You're never too old to make a fashion statement!

Milo turned 41 today:

20130322_194118_zps9eb9be8c.jpg

We brought a shovel from the shop and had a quick dig around to see what we could find.

20130322_064759_zpsd88dd02e.jpg

I was slightly wary of snakes but as it turns out today was Milo's lucky day - 300 points! If only I could dig that up in the garden.

20130322_064804_zps77cdfe03.jpg

20130322_064808_zps121d1c03.jpg

Unsuprisingly Milo was a very pleased little guy.

20130322_064811_zps26031e02.jpg

You may be interested to hear that Scout and Boo got married to each other this morning. The odd thing? Well, Boo is still a teenager! I've heard of this happening before but I have to admit I was quite suprised. I guess I shouldn't have been worrying about Scout marrying Milo after all, she clearly goes for the younger men.

Guess who's 42 today? Milo is now the meaning of life the universe and everything (read The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy).

20130323_194329_zps601e9e94.jpg

Milo was feeling particularly nurturing so I brought him a pot plant to look after from the shop.

20130323_190934_zpsca412f04.jpg

I don't know what sort of fertiliser Milo used but that plant was suddenly very alive! Maybe there really is something in talking to plants. Or it could just be him going dotty in his old age!

Milo has reached the respectable old age of 43:

20130324_194511_zpseae9c624.jpg

We played with Milo's RC duck toy for a while today. It's good to see he still has good eye-hand coordination. His eyesight's not going yet!

20130324_191058_zps7d6787aa.jpg

Unfortunately he then crashed the toy:

20130324_190111_zpsdd113c79.jpg

Milo was not a happy tama and I couldn't persuade him to play again - I guess he's just a sore loser.

Now Milo's older he's got a little more attitude. Here he is rocking out to his er... Tama-pod?

20130325_190512_zps687ae608.jpg

I wonder what his favourite music is? Hmmm maybe rap. Whatever it is he looks happy!

Milo turned 45 today:

20130326_194256_zps3e407c8f.jpg

Now he's been around so long I felt he needed to be able to keep track of the time so I got him a cuckoo clock. Milo was very interested and stood watching it tick for a while. He looked a little impatient, I wonder what he was waiting for... Can tamagotchis be late for anything?

20130326_185804_zps7ca707d0.jpg

20130326_185940_zps6aeb939a.jpg

Suddenly something made him turn around.

20130326_190020_zps8af8e32a.jpg

And out of the clock popped a little face! It opened and closed its beak seven times to mark the hour before disappearing again.

20130326_190024_zpsfe8133b8.jpg

I don't know why but for some reason I find this item very cute. I think it was educational for Milo to learn how to tell the time too!

Milo is 46 now:

20130327_194528_zps8d51dd1e.jpg

I brought him some darts from the shop and he had fun pretending to be a ninja. It's good to know he still has sharp eyesight but I can't help wondering what Milo was aiming for. Just call him Bond... Milo Bond, licensed to be a very cute tama!

Milo is 47:

20130328_193948_zps6d514be9.jpg

Today my v4 arrived in the post! I hadn't expected it for a least another week so as you can imagine I was very happy. Milo was also keen to be introduced to Calum, his new neighbour. Milo invited him round to his shell and they spent some quality time together.

20130328_193232_zps50caf04d.jpg

Unfortunately Calum presented him with a snake and poor Milo was sad and a little shaken up.

20130328_193835_zps3fe59059.jpg

But I reminded him that Calum is still only a toddler and doesn't know better so it's his responsibility to act the grown up. A little reluctantly Milo tried to be friendly again and brought him a present as a peace offering. I think my two boys will be getting along a lot better now in the future!

20130328_193852_zpsabae0536.jpg

Today was mine and Milo's final day of school and we now have three weeks of holiday to look forward to. I'm glad to finally have so much free time to spend on him.

Milo should have been turning 49 today but yesterday this happened:

20130329_184712_zps36efc757.jpg

I put a new battery in straight away but instead of turning 48 yesterday like he should have, Milo stayed 47. I guess his last "save point" before his battery ran out must have been when he turned 47 so we ended up losing a day. Anyway, he's 48 now:

20130330_192343_zpscea31995.jpg

Even though I've had to change his battery before it still freaked me out when an egg popped up on the screen. But I pressed "download" and Milo was back! I know it sounds silly but I honestly can't imagine what I would do without him anymore.

Here he is working on his fitness:

20130330_191858_zpse8b052b0.jpg

Maybe he's hoping to build up a bit of muscle! Hmmm I don't think he'll be winning the olympics anytime soon.

Milo is 49 today:

20130331_195658_zpsead88780.jpg

Happy Easter! Although he can't eat chocolate eggs, Milo wanted to celebrate in his own way.

20130331_191114_zps4450e5fb.jpg

One of my favourite items on the v3 is the gramophone. It has a retro feel to it which I guess suits Milo, seeing as he's an oldie. Perhaps it reminds him of his childhood?

20130331_185542_zpsf1776f49.jpg

"Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" started playing and neither Milo or I could help singing along.

20130331_185535_zps8be73181.jpg

I think he likes it as much as I do, look at him grinning!

Milo is half a century old today, I can't believe I've had him so long:

20130401_201857_zps25a8ca30.jpg

I was going to take some pictures of him today but the hour went forward here in England on Sunday and well... I lost track of time. Only I could get jetlagged in my own country! Anyway, Milo knew what the right time was and went to bed at eight as usual so didn't want to play. At least he looks adorable though :D .
