We have a new word!

December 10, 2007

Over the last few weeks when ever David sees a ball especially when out at places like K-Mart etc where there are heaps of them we kept getting bbb bbb and then over the weekend his new wiggles board book has balls in it and we got bball bball (bit hard to type how he says it) but it is def ball!  Yay way to go little man, mummy and daddy are so proud of you!

Thank you all for your comments re his bath.  He loves water still so think it is the bath.  We may have made some progress last night but fingers crossed it continues tonight and then I can tell you about it!

Wow, I can’t believe that it is 2 weeks today until Christmas!  We think that we have figured out our very last present which we have to get which is for the FIL – which reminds me I must get Richard to get it today!  They have an acre with lots of vege gardens and lots of and i mean lots of fruit trees so it is a long handle with a basket etc on the end of it to get the fruit.  We are going to get one as well as our Plum tree has gone manic and has sooooo many plums on it and that is just the first lot.  The previous owners said that most years they got yellow fleshed plums first and then red ones but last year it was mostly red fleshed plums!!!!MMMm my favourite.  So if any of you have any amazing plum jam or plum sauce recpies please feel free to send them our way!  We have 2 apple trees but the large one outside my scrap room had major hail damage and looks like we have lost all the fruit but the other smalle apple tree has tiny little apples on it at the moment and looks great.  I can also see new blossom on it as well!

I saw this questionare on Beverly’s blog and thought I would answer it as well for Christmas!

    Yay for David’s new word. It’s amazing how something so small can mean so much. We had a new word this week too – it’s “chuppa” which means “chips”.
