park photos :)

My first time on a flying fox!

My Gramps is so cool!

The law of puddles

If the puddle is filled with leaves, you will slip, land in it and that will be the end of your play in the park.

I had to come home in just my nappy and a blanket. So embarrassing.

Some things I have learnt

In no particular order...

  1. Spinning round and round is not conducive to walking, running or even standing straight
  2. Spinning round and round will make Daddy forget that I touched the laptop/computer or TV.
  3. It is not OK to put anything but clothes in the washing machine. Tupperware, credit cards and cell phones are not clothes!
  4. If you throw your sippy cup in the sea, you better hope you have a patient mummy and that the tide is going the right way.
  5. Crying does not help you get out of trouble
  6. Signing "plane" does not make them magically appear - unless you are actually near the airport.
  7. Mummy will forget she is cross with you if you raspberry her tummy or stick your finger in her belly button.
  8. DO NOT put banana down the back of Mummy's jeans. (I'm guessing this is universal though.)
  9. Running on the spot and squealing in front of another child is not as much fun for them as it is for me.
  10. Breathing with a snotty nose is easier if you wipe your nose on the clean laundry, couch, Daddy's shirt or all over your face.
  11. You can comb your hair with a fork. If you want lasting style rub egg, two minute noodles or mince through it first.
  12. Mince and chicken are not evil. Pumpkin soup is.
  13. I am too young to drink coffee and eat a whole chocolate biscuit. There is absolutely no point in asking.
  14. Wearing a shirt that says "Cutest baby in the world" will get commented on... Apparently I am in the Top 25. I'm guessing I have to compete with the Jolie-Pitt kids.
  15. There is no shirt that says "Mummy's WMD" or "I am what Bush was looking for!"
  16. Just because I can climb on the dining room table doesn't mean I should. Same goes for opening the front gate.
  17. It's harder for grownups to put a nappy on a moving target.
  18. It's harder for grownups to dress a moving target.
  19. It's harder for grownups to put Pumpkin Soup in a moving target.
  20. Geese are scary, ducks bite and Mummy is not averse to kicking either of them.
  21. Ducks will apparently learn not to grab the bread from my hand if Mummy smacks their beak and says NO!
  22. Girls like to be chased
  23. I don't.
  24. Throwing is harder than it looks.
  25. Throwing like a girl is easy.
  26. I get invited out to lunch and can choose to bring the parents.
  27. Sleep is for the weak.
  28. Music is cool
  29. Pretending to be shy gets you far in the world!
  30. So does being cute :)
  31. Wearing clothes is optional once you can take them off yourself.
  32. Mummies don't like having their shirts pulled down in the middle of the shops.
  33. The phrase "Oh My God" during a nappy change does not mean anything has fallen off. Checking it just means that you have to have your hands washed.
  34. Insomnia is best shared.
  35. Fits of giggles at 3am are not contagious.
  36. Cuddles can cure anything.
  37. I have 2 ears.
  38. Everyone I have met has 2 ears.
  39. Ears are great handles when riding on Daddy's shoulders.
  40. Life is more fun on the weekend
  41. Books are cool and if you break them in 3 you have 3 books!
  42. Every stone on the path has to be looked at closely and tasted. There is a chance that it may be edible.
  43. If you are given a cupboard of plastic things there is another cupboard full of glass things. Play with that instead if you want attention.
  44. Eggs break.
  45. Raw eggs does not taste like scrambled egg.
  46. Raw potatoes - very similar to #45
  47. Only talk on the phone when there is no one on it.
  48. Grown ups do not know where any of their or your bodyparts are. Nor for that matter do they know what noises any animal makes.
  49. Mummy's mixing bowls make great hats and drums.
  50. Putting your head between Daddy's legs when he is peeing is dangerous. Always use a mixing bowl for protection!

Mummy cut her hair today, she sat in a chair and a strange man washed her hair. I thought it was a bit strange but it was even weirder when a lady came and used SCISSORS to cut Mummy's hair. Mummy didn't even flinch.

It looks really nice but it is so short her pony tail looks very funny now! I'll post a photo tomorrow, if Daddy will take one.

I am teething again. I got 2 teeth in the last week and a bit but am now so grumpy and sore that I must be getting more. It is really hard to sleep when your mouth is sore so I have been trying to share my discomfort with everyone else. Only Mummy wakes up though... But I bet that on the weekend Daddy will be prodded and pushed out of bed to come and check on me.

It is worse at night when I can't be distracted by my toys or the computer. Luckily Mummy has two types of medicine that helps.

Well off to Laila's - we're both teething ratbags according to Mummy and Marnie so we will keep each other entertained while Marnie makes her special coffee!


On Monday Mummy let me help make muffins. I'm not sure why but after a few stirs I was unceremoniously dumped on the floor and told to go find a book. Maybe she forgot how to make them but even when I got the packet out of the bin for her she still needed a book. So I got her an egg and a gem squash from the pantry. Also not what she needed. Oh well, by the time they were in the oven I was helping her with the dishes and pouring water down on the floor so that we could clean it too. Mummy muttered a few words and has said that maybe we can bake again when she can find some nice metal cookie cutters. Sounds like it might be a long wait though.

A short update...

Well it could be said that I am keeping Mummy on her toes now that I can run and climb. She rarely gets a chance to sit down and have a coffee let alone write out my blog. I bet if this ever comes online she is doing it while she should be getting showered and dressed for the day's adventure. Which means we will probably be late...

Over the last few weeks I have been doing some new things. I go swimming every Thursday which is so much fun. We go in the deep pool first for a swim and then we go into the special baby pool which is perfect for me to run around in and chase the fountains and sprinklers. It also has a wonderful cafe which serves yummy fluffies!

I am also hoping to go back to Twinkle Toes which is a really fun singing and music group. Mummy and I had so much fun and they even gave me morning tea!

This past weekend I showed Daddy that while he has been at work I have learned to kick my ball really hard and not fall over as often. We went to a reserve near Sarah and Richard's house to play. Well Daddy, Richard and Sarah played more than me as there was a flying fox/zip line over the stream. Even Mummy had a go when we were busy throwing stones in the stream. After that I played on the playground and exhausted everyone!

I am getting better at throwing too, but I have to keep practising because I can't throw the tennis ball yet as it is too heavy.

Mummy bought me gumboots! They have dinosaurs on them and I love that I am allowed in puddles. It was a very strange sound when I first stepped in the puddle but after a few good stamps I decided it was worth the effort and played in all 5 on the path in the park.

It was Mother's Day yesterday and we took Mummy for breakfast. She had a lovely day and I gave her lots of cuddles and kisses.

Well I better let Mummy go to the loo before I wake up.

I will try and upload a selection of park photos this week!
