This Week

It has been a busy week. We made it to the mall one rainy day, and checked out the playground.

The slide was the most fun!

YAY I did it all by myself!!

We also attended our Mothers Group Christmas party - the Dad's came too - it was fun! (although none of the kids liked the Dad dressed as Santa - almost all of them burst into tears when he appeared - including Genna!)
Pretty girl in your party dress

There are more girls than boys in our group - but somehow we managed to get this shot with all the boys! From left (clockwise) Wendel, You, Billy, Beau & Rory

You got a lovely dog pull toy - you love to turn around in a circle while pulling it!

SOMEONE insisted she MUST have a chocolate chip cookie while shopping -
ahhh the telling chocolate smear on the cheek!

Also, a story I forgot to tell last week -

Last week at daycare they said one day you didn't nap at all! You were in a cot across from Isla - and you two kept standing up and imitating the noises each of you were making. You were also jumping up and down in your cots. There is a window, so Leeanne could see what you were doing. Every time she came in to check on you, you'd both quickly lay down like 'we KNOW we are supposed to be sleeping'!! Then as soon as she left you'd be right back up acting silly!

You are all about talking this week. You follow me around and repeat words I say. You have mastered 'more' 'bubbles' 'all done' and 'please' (when I prompt it). You have repeated countless other words this week - you really are soaking it all in!

Its not only dolls for you! You love cars too.

You just started saying 'Night Night' today - while tucking your bunny in with a little blanket - too cute!

I ordered another photo where you are sitting on Becky's lap and not sucking your thumb, it should arrive in a few weeks :) Leeann is your FAVORITE - you really like her - she is SO nice!

And this week you showed me how you figured out how to move your little bike using your feet!!

16 Months

16 Months!! Wow how the time flies

Check out my PRETTY dress :)

Last weekend we went down to Granddad & Nanna's house for a visit!

They got you your own little chair - you were thrilled!

Big chairs are fun though too

Hmmmmm what's out there???

You with your Baba. This week you started calling your bunny baba. I thought it was a good idea for her to have a name, so I started calling her that too. Now when I ask you 'Where's your baba?' you yell BAAAAAAAAAABAAAAAAAA because you know what I'm talking about!

Your favorite things - a little blanky and baba

We had a nice picnic down at the beach one day

and a nice play in the sand after lunch

of course you wanted to twinkle your toes too!


And you took a walk with Granddad

and a fun ride on the swing

back at the house you played piano for the first time - super fun

But after all the beach time play you were so exhausted you took a short nap in your cot and then continued your nap on Dada

tired lady!

all sprawled out

lovely lashes

Ahhhh gotta love chubby wrists

Dada & baby

Cuddles with Nanna

You loved having Granddad read you your bedtime books

And watering the plants with Nanna

Fun with sun glasses!

You hair is really starting to get long!

Back in Manly we celebrated Nanna's birthday weekend with her - you two had a lovely stroll down the corso

Also your friend Chloe came to play one day. She has the same bunny as you - so it was a bit confusing for you both. I had to make sure you both just had one each to carry around.

The first hour she was here, you just followed her around our flat. Everything she picked up, you ripped out of her hands, like - HEY that's MINE!!!

But eventually you guys started playing together well. Here you are both having a blast with a little bottle of baby lotion. You were each putting little drops on your hands and rubbing it in - it's the simple things!

Chloe saying 'Hi' and you saying 'Hello' - so cute how you both LOVE the same things!!

Chloe wanted to sit on my lap for a snack.
You were fine about that as long as YOU were with your Mama too :)

Playing peek a boo

Here I am !!

You are getting SO good at putting your own shoes on

and it's FUN!

You also love 'round and round the garden' with Nanna

New words this week - sand, butterfly, car, Nanna. You are getting SO good at copying us!
