Melbourne

April 25th, 2008 by Trent

We had a great trip down to Melbourne!!!! It was special spending time with family we don’t get to see very often.

My Booba Lena and Papa George also joined us in Melbourne which was lovely too. We had lots of great lunches and dinners over the 4 days we were there.

Saturday morning we had breakfast with Aunty Mel. liam-and-mel.jpg

Then we had lunch at my Great Aunty Pauline and Uncle Peter’s place and I got to play with my older cousins Joel and Ethan. Mum’s cousin Rochelle and husband Chaim met me for the first time too, and I got a nice cuddle with cousin David who met me in Sydney when I was just 3 weeks old. It was also exciting to see David’s wife Jo who is 5 months pregnant.

Aunty Mel and Uncle Jules live nearly next door to an amazing playground which I had lots of fun playing in. I love going on the swings and for the first time on the slippery dip too. They also organised to have some cool toys to play with whilst I went over to their house. We love Big Bird!

Mum and dad were very proud of me sleeping so well in the portacot.

When we hung out at our serviced apartment, I discovered that I enjoy watching Hi-5, “Sing Along with Ollie” and especially Dora the Explorer. I think mum and dad will have to upgrade to the Nick Jr children’s package on Foxtel for our home.

Sunday night we had dinner at Aunty Mel and Uncle Jules and we got to see their beautiful new home.

Well I have been to Queensland, Fiji and Melbourne and I am not even 1 years old! Where to next???!!!!!!!!!

Play, Play, Play

April 25th, 2008 by Trent

Play is my favourite pastime. I mostly love to eat/slober my toys or otherwise I shake them like crazy. I am also getting good at playing (rolling) the ball with mum and dad.

I have had lots of great play dates the past week -from the friends in my mothers group, and also Jasper and Dylan.

Everyone thinks I am teething because I have such rosy cheeks (which are very pinchable I have been told) but no new teeth have popped out for ages!

Unfortunately the weather has become colder and wetter 🙁 At least I got to wear my new GAP jacket that dad bought for me when he went to London while I was still cooking in mum’s tummy! (as you can see he chose the unisex colour red!) Funny to think I have grown into these clothes that once looked ages and ages away!

I am looking forward to going to Melbourne for 4 days to visit my family, especially my Aunty Mel and Uncle Jules. I will write my adventures in Melbourne next week.

His got the whole world in his hands…

Well literally I have the world in my hands! Actually I prefer to eat it 🙂

My new couch is getting used by me and my friends. I am the only one that can sit still as my friends are crawling and walking away. As you can see I was a good influence in these pics and got them to sit still with me for a quick second.

I had my last swimming lesson and music class this week as we now have a 2 week break for school holidays. I really enjoying swimming and I am going to start Play n Move at the end of the month.

On Monday, Mum and I went to dad’s new work for lunch and checked out his trendy new offices.

I tasted corn on the cob recently which was pretty yummy and I am going to try some Fish Fingers tonight at Booba Lena’s and Papa George’s house.sweetcorn.jpg

This week I have had lots of great play dates and I am really enjoying the swings at the park.

We have been lucky with the weather and I also had a picnic on Thursday with mum and Oma.

I am having fun riding my new tricycle and mum gave me some cooking utensils to see if I could help out in the kitchen.

I want to ride my tricycle

I think I am starting to grow up because mum and dad replaced my bouncer with a couch this week! Suits me fine as you can see.

On the weekend I got to ride my very first tricycle! Very cool! I will learn to peddle as soon as my feet can reach!

On Sunday we went to Ruschutter’s Bay Park with all my grandparents and Cassia and her parents. It was a glorious day and we had a lovely lunch.

I have also started to do some really funny faces! When I was over at Cassia’s the other day her dad caught one of my new looks on camera!

I always have lots of fun visiting Oma every week and we often see the ducks in the park. I love playing on her bed too.

I passed my first test!

April 3rd, 2008 by Trent

I have my first certificate as proof I passed my intermediate bubs club at swimming on Tuesday and Booba Lena came to watch my water skills. I have enrolled again for next term so I am sure I will learn even more fun stuff in the water.

It has been a week of trying new food – weet bix, rice cakes and fish. I LOVE rice cakes (thanks Lucy and Toby) and I am not so keen on weet bix and fish as yet. I still love broccoli and I am starting to want to feed myself again. At little messy but most of the time I get my mouth!

On Saturday I had Alexis and her parents visit me which was great fun. They stayed for my dinner and bath time. Alexis helped wash my hair. She will make a great older sister one day.

On the Easter long weekend we had Yum Cha with Cassia and her parents.

I have also started to very occasionally crawl backwards – yes backwards away from the toy that I am trying to reach!!! Crazy I know! Some say it is the start to the real thing….watch this space!
