  • Cycling

    Evan had a busy day today – he wrode to the grocery store twice on his tricycle! I was surprised that he even made it once, but we went a second time to fetch some beer and icecream! We surprised Nicole on the first trip, since she wasn’t expecting us to follow her. Evan’s very […]

  • Pump

    Evan’s favourite thing from today was the pump at the waterfall. He really likes pumps. We went to a farm day a while ago and they had a number of pumps from a local pioneer mechanics club and he still talks about them.

  • No more day-sleeps

    Evan’s definately stopped his day-sleeps these days. Although today when we put him time-out in his room, we thought it was awefully quiet, so we checked and he was asleep on his bed! We let him sleep for about 1/2 hour and then woke him. He tried really hard to get back to sleep for […]

  • Baby pieces

    Nicole and the family were going for a walk and they went past some construction worker working on a building, and they had sledgehammers and were breaking rocks into small pieces. Nicole asked Evan what they are doing and he said “Breaking rocks into baby pieces”.

  • At the beach

    We went to Maraetai beach today, which was very nice. We were up pretty early (our little man woke up at 6:30) so we were at the beach by 10am or so. There were few people around, so we had our pick of spots. Lauren slept in the car (she hadn’t had a sleep yet […]

  • Cameron’s birthday party

    Evan went to his second birthday party in as many days today. Yesterday was Marvin’s birthday and today was Cameron’s. Cameron’s party was at a play centre in Whitford, a few minutes drive from here. It’s very much countryside out that way and Evan had a great time at the very nice centre. There was […]

  • Paintings

    We bought Evan some paint today, so that he can use his easel to paint on. He still makes a mess of things, but he’s got a nice creative streak to him. He hasn’t figured out how to not mix the colours together in the paint pots, but that’s ok. The paint’s water-solvent, so we […]

  • Mid-day sleeps gone for good

    Well it seems Evan definately doesn’t want mid-day sleeps any more. We still put him up for a nap, but he never sleeps and invariably comes downstairs. But for that, he’s in bed early and never stays up late. He sometimes sleeps in later, sometimes as late as 8:15! Nice.

  • Mayo, Deo

    Evan loves saying “Mayo, Deo” over and over. Not sure how he came up with that!
