Catch Up Blog

We were going through digital pictures the other day and realized we totally forgot to post pictures of our visit to Nanna & GrandDad's house back in October - so here you go!
Yummm Orange!

Close Up

A few recent updates too:

About 2 weeks ago you figured out how to jump! You’ve been saying ‘hop, jump’ for quite a long time, but just kind of stepping around on each foot. You figured out now that you plant your feet and jump up with both feet – you don’t get very high – but you’ve got it down!! When I picked you up from daycare today you and Aavni were jumping all over the place :)

You must have learnt how to play hide and seek at daycare, because the past few days you’ll say ‘I HIDE MAMA, CLOSE EYES.’ So I sit for a few seconds with my hands over my eyes while you go to ‘hide’. It’s so funny, because your idea of hiding it to stand up against a wall with your face up against it – so you can’t see me! You squeal in delight when I ‘find’you though, then you sit (peeking through your fingers) while I go to hide – good fun!

Yesterday on the way home from playgroup I said we were going to play at your friend James’ house, saying remember him? Last time we were there you played trains. You said ‘Ohhhh have dog!’ And you were right – they have a dog – I was so surprised you remembered as it’s been like a month since we’ve gone to their house. Then you said ‘Dog have long tail!’ I asked what other animals have a long tails ‘Horse – Horse have long tail!’ I said what has a short tail ‘Ummmm pig, pig have short tail’ and ‘Sheep have short tail, Genna have No tail!’

I’m just so impressed with the way you think things through like that – our little smarty pants 

We laugh every morning when you yell from your bed ‘I WAKE UP! MAMA – DADA!!’
Yea ok – we hear you! You sure can yell!

We’ve been swimming in the pool a lot lately with this lovely weather. I try to encourage you do to things without me holding your hand (like taking a step down to the lower step in the pool). You said ‘Friend Noodle Help!’ So I held out the pool noodle and it ‘helped’ you step down. Now you talk about your friend noodle all the time – so funny!

At the beach with Dada - waiting for the crosswalk light to change (cool dudes!)


And some beach pics from our Nanna & GrandDad visit too.....

  3. We think the video of Genna playing piano and singing with Lyn is particularly precious! Yes, Murray, great job taking photos of Genevieve; they are gorgeous photographs. Grandpa now has a new screensaver of Genevieve.
    Love, Grandpa and Grandma.
