Today Kian sang

Just to up the cute factor - Kian now sings Twinkle Twinkle, not actual words but he has the tune almost right and even gets the actions in too.

Very cute and it brought a tear to my eye.

A very proud Mum

I am finally more verbal

BUT the parental units wish I wasn't!!

My new word is "No!" which is often sung at 5am or repeated from the back seat whenever we go anywhere. I also like to keep them on their toes by saying NO! even when I want whatever they are offering me. Then I cry because I can't say "Kidding" yet.

I also have very long chats with any one who comes in the house, imaginary, insect or not. It is really fun to talk now. Mummy says I have a lovely voice when I am not being a dragon.

If you want to hear me talk just phone me!

Mummy wonders...

if the dvd I present to her in the morning to entice her out of bed is actually my way of saying how the day is going to go... This morning it was "Panic Room" and "Queen of the Damned". There was a week where I had to have "Stigmata" in the car with me. I also keep hiding "Finding Nemo" in the bathroom. Daddy gets given "School of Rock" at least once a day.

So what do you think?

Tomorrow I might find an even better one... Suggestions?

What I've been doing

I have been quite busy exploring recently.

James and I went on a hike up a mountain last Monday. It involved a large amount of mud and gravel and climbing up hill. But I think it was fun, I wanted to keep going but Mummy and Kate wanted us to go eat our lunch in the park at the base of the mountain. I think James got altitude sickness. He thought we were on a slide and lay down and yelled "WHEEEEEEEEE!" while trying to slide down the mountain. Mummy and Kate thought it was funny so I guess he was ok. They usually react differently if things are bad.

After our hike we had lunch and picked up bark and branches to take home. Daddy recycled mine :(

I like going places with Kate and James - they have a huge car and it means that James and I can sit next to each other and chat or play games. Mummy says we are too cute!

On Tuesday we went to the museum in Wellington (Te Papa) Mummy wanted to go see the giant squid but I found out about a storytime so we went to that instead. It was fun but I think Mummy's right I am still too little to sit and listen to 3 books before we can go play. Then we met Daddy for lunch.

On Wednesday we went swimming. It was fun. We didn't get to swim in the big pool as they were having a lesson but I got to go in the baby pool and played in the fountains and bubbles. After that we met Laila and Marnie for lunch. I had sushi and ate all 5 pieces and then helped Mummy eat her naan bread.

On Thursday we joined Marnie, Laila and 300 other people for a buggy walk at Hikoikoi Reserve. It was very interesting. There were so many people and dogs to look at that I didn't mind having to sit in my buggy for so long. We also saw the sea and beach. At the start of the walk there was a big picnic area with coffee for the mums and snacks for us littlies. After the walk we had a picnic for lunch.

Friday we had coffee group at the local rugby field. What a great idea! There was more than enough space for us to run around and even a small playpark.

I really did a lot last week! No wonder Mummy was looking for a break on the weekend!

Walking a mile in Daddy's shoes

is more fun than he makes it look!

Baking Crunchies

Mummy and I baked crunchies... I didn't like them when they were cooked but the dough was yummy.

Playdate with James

A few weeks ago James came to play, while his Mum went to work. We had so much fun and spent ages outside watching planes and buses. We also built block towers.

Here are some photos of our playdate.

My first story

Today I was playing in the garden and having bare bum time. This is always fun as I like the feeling of the breeze on my "bits".

But while I was investigating a flower and a bee - I was tickled by a long piece of grass. I jumped up and ran to Mummy. She asked me what happened... I signed

bee - flower - bee - there (garden) - there (penis)

Mummy asked "what did the bee do?"

I answered: bee -raspberry sound- there (penis)

Mummy burst out laughing but I was telling the truth!
