Have the tune, just gotta get the words... oh, and cuddles!

I'm singing 'wheels on the bus', 'jingle bells' (so last season) and 'twinkle, twinkle little star' really well. I have the tunes down to a 'T'. the words are there, but they're not coming out.. they will, in time. When mom sings 'old macdonald' to me i sing the 'eee iiii eeee iiii oooooh' bits, all at the right time too.

i'm really into my cuddling these days. Only now, when i cuddle.. i pat the person i'm cuddling on the back.. just like the biggies do. Our cleaner came today, when mom took me off to nursery i ran to her and cuddled her (patted her on the back of course), then ran back and gave her another one before i walked out. You can't have too many cuddles i say.

I've figured out how to ride my little bike. I could only move backwards before but have worked out how to push myself forwards, much better... can see where i'm going now! i guess next thing to learn is a bicycle, but i'm a tad young for that.

Went to GOSH to have my testes checked. We waited over an hour. they called me but we missed it because i was too busy exploring all the rooms and corridors. all ok, have to go back in a year for another check-up.

india and tara went to india today for 3 months. aren't they lucky? i'm jealous. maybe we'll visit them!

Occupational Therapy

Laura came to see how i'm doing. Mom was embarrassed because when she got here i was trying to turn the tv on to watch football (my new obsession!). We played with building blocks, she's really impressed with how i stack them... now i can go one step further and copy shapes that mom builds. i have to work on my pincer grip, the grip is good but i need to strengthen it a bit. i'm to push coins into play dough or putty. Aunty kir suggested i open and close a clothes peg which is a pretty nifty idea. i also have to work on threading beads. i have a threader but it's lost in my toy box somewhere, mom has to dig it out for me. I must also work on shape recognition. Got some busy days ahead but it's all fun stuff so that's ok.

Mad about footie!

If there's footy on the telly i go mad. I run on the spot with excitement. I watch quite a bit of italian football so have all the dramatics down to a 'T'. I throw my arms up in the air and shout 'yaaaaay' when a goal is scored. I also fall to the ground shouting 'oh no'. Maybe i'll be a footballer? but mom's choosing my wife apparently, i'm not allowed a WAG.

I'm back!

Happy New Year! I have a feeling 2008 is going to be good.

I had the most amazing time in South Africa with all my cousins. It was so nice to roll on the grass, feel the sand in my toes and to swim in salty water. I slept really well because i was running around more. I tried new foods like biltong and sadza, loved both of those. The best part was playing with my cousins... loved chasing hannah around the house when she was on her rollerblades... erin made me giggle a LOT... kai and i bonded really well (we speak the same language)... maja and i had a lot of fun too playing catches in the garden. I was very gentle with Gemima, i spoke to her in baby language.

I met Santa, he arrived by boat at the yacht club. He gave me a packet of sweets, I'm not allowed sweets so i gave my share to my cousins.

I would love to move there some day, we will see.

Here are some pics.
