3 out of 4 for Puss in Boots

March 31, 2012

Outdoor plans with the urban hiking group were swapped for staying indoors out of the rain today.  Instead of walking wet trails in NW Portland we had our feet up at a matinee showing of Puss in Boots in our living room.

Well, three out of four of us watched it. Rafa thought the masks on the wall were more interesting.

What do you do when your new pram doesn’t fit in your old car?

March 29, 2012

Buy a bigger car of course! Our "big car" is like a bus. It has three rows of seats and can fit up to 10 people but we've put the back row seats down so that the chariot can fit in without having to fold it up - and there's STILL room for the shopping.

We took the seat between me and Rafa out and put it in the cupboard under the stairs. I thought it might become our time out seat for when we've been naughty but no one has had to sit there yet. We also put a mirror up so Mum and Papi can see Rafa when they are driving, but Rafa thinks it's just so he can check himself out.

Things that shouldn’t be taken to bed

March 27, 2012

When I get something new that I really like I take it to bed with me for safe keeping (you never know what might go missing over night!).  An example, right here.

But Mum suggests I should make an exception for my new Dora potty seat.

Baby boot camp

March 26, 2012

Mum and I thought it was time the two of us enlist in Baby Boot Camp and today was the first day of our new regime.  I got to meet other little athletes-to-be whilst enjoying Mum pushing me around the athletic centre, across the river and struggle (cough) I mean sprint up the hill stopping along the way to complete sets of strength exercises.   It was so much fun we’re going back tomorrow.

Our new training buddies.

Bright smiles.

Confused, but I like it!

March 24, 2012

I think spring is confused.  She doesn’t know if it should be raining or snowing or turning on the sunshine!

We didn't question her confusion about turning on the sunshine and resumed our outdoor picnics.

Help! I can't see! I've gone blind! Hmmm, I bet Ana has something to do with this.

Spring is full of surprises

March 22, 2012

Wow! Look what happens when I sing "Frosty The Snowman" before I go to sleep.

Out to play with Frosty.

crunch, crunch, crunch.

squelch, squelch, squelch.

Tracking boot prints. I think I've been here before.

That snowball was supposed to get Mum, not go down inside my boot. One wet sock.

No wet feet on the way to the office in the trusty chariot!
