Me and Jefferson Bear

I have recently adopted Daddy's bear and I like to carry him around with me in the late afternoon when I am at my most cuddly.

Mummy caught us on film today. So here we are in all our cuteness... Oh and he is wearing one of my onesies from when I was 3 months old.

My buddy James

James is my friend, he is nearly 17 months old now and can talk. He taught me to say "tractor". I like playing with him and we have fun when we are together. Our mums say we are going to be the gentle giants of coffee group and school as we are both tall.

Meeting an author

Today we went to a reading by Lynley Dodd, the author of one of my favourite books - Hairy Mclairy from Donaldson's Dairy.

It was at a bookstore and there were so many people we couldn't hear the reading. But I did get to choose 2 new books and got a sticker from the owner of the shop. Mummy then had the books signed by Lynley Dodd. It was very exciting.

Then we went to have lunch with Trinity and Gabriel. We ate fish and chips in their car while watching planes and surfers at the airport... if that doesn't make any sense, just come visit us and land at Wellington International Airport. (On a calm day!)

I really had a good time and had a long sleep in the car on the way home.

Will try to post some photos of my new big boy haircut in the week.

Daddy turned 31 on Friday 17 July.

I woke up extra early so that I could spend more time with Daddy before he left for work but I could've slept in as he took the day off to spend more time with me. Well that's what he said and then he and Mummy left me at home with my coffee group friends and their mums while they went to watch Harry Potter. I felt a little ripped off but then realised that everyone was there to play with me!

I only missed them a little bit and was surprised to hear they missed me more.

After coffee group we went out for lunch - I ate a bit of a burger and lots of chips and aoili.

I got Daddy some Sumatran coffee and a packet of nik naks for his present. Mummy got him a new wallet - I helped pick it out.

Next year maybe I can go with Daddy to the movies!

The week that was....

We had lots of rain and I could only go out if I wore my blue overalls... I think I look like an Oompaloompa!

But we did have one warm day which seemed to encourage Mummy to let me have barebum time... In winter! Wearing wellies and a hoodie... Crazy Mummy!

Kite surfing and Planes...

Hi there,

I thought I would write Kian's blog this evening as he is in bed 45 minutes early and so is his Daddy. It is so rare that I get some quiet time...

This afternoon we thought we should get out the house. It was one of those Sundays where getting out of your PJs seems pointless. So we headed into Wellington to see if we could see some planes take off at the airport.

We arrived in a freezing cold Lyall Bay - southerlies roaring, to see kite-surfers. Kian and Chris were so excited. Kian I think was more interested in the bright kites and Chris in the fact that the one guy jumped about 15m into the air. It frightens me to think that in the not so distant futrue my little Kian will be doing something similar.

After about 20 minutes of watching the kites, we heard a plane take off and that was it. Kian sat in his carseat signing "plane" and making plane noises followed by the sign for "where". So we drove to the side of the runway and got out the car, in order to see better. Dumb idea. I didn't have a hat or hoodie with me. Luckily both boys did as the wind was so cold I got earache that lasted a good hour after we left the airport. Kian loved watching the planes coming in and taking off. There was even an old WW2 plane that came in.

Once we were tired of freezing our butts off we drove to the more sheltered Oriental Bay so Kian could have a run on the promenade and get his fill of dogs and bikes and joggers... We bought gelato to celebrate the fact that it wasn't raining and we could see blue skies! Kian is a fan of gelato now too. Something I am sure we will live to regret!

Well I am now going to rot my brain with some mindless TV...

Have a great week and think of me.

Slides into pools and other adventures.

I have had lots of fun over the last few weeks.

When we go swimming, I meet up with two new friends, Cameron and Brendan, and their daddy Mark. So it makes swimming even more entertaining. Mummy, Mark and Rod have to watch FOUR little ones under 3! It is very amusing. We tried a different pool last week, which had a slide into the pool. Awesome! Mummy wouldn't go down the slide with me - but Mark did! It was really fun.

On the weekend I was spoiled rotten by Daddy - he bought me a huge wooden truck! It is amazing. It tips up and everything. I can even sit in the back. It is a bit too heavy for inside use but as it is raining I can as long as I am very careful.

Mummy got me a mostly waterproof overalls which is great as I can now play in the garden even if it has been raining. But I do think I look like I should be working at a butchery. I will post pictures as soon as Mummy takes one that looks good.

I have been learning some new signs and also say the word Yes and nod my head. It makes life easier for everyone. M&D are proud that I didn't learn no first - but it will come.

Lastly - Gramps and Grandma are in Sydney and I hope that means I will be able to chat to them soon and visit too! Mummy says it is weird that they are in the same hemisphere again.

My Uncle Wayne.

My uncle is the man on the left. He isn't really that tall but he is taller than my Daddy. I have been told he is lots of fun and I will get to see him in January. This is also one of the more normal photos I have seen of him. Not many boys have uncles who are paid to dress up and paint themselves gold! We are going to have lots of fun when we meet.
