December seems to be flying by – only 10 days left til Christmas!
This is what December looks like so far: Reggie gave Monster a Bee Bee Bear hand puppet, which was taken and shown to everyone for several days. Here he is showing Bee Bee Bear what can be seen from the bus window.
It’s very hard catching him still enough to get a non-blurry photo! The reflection in the mirror is slightly less blurry! Playing Thunderbirds wearing his International Rescue hat 🙂
We’ve been watching Dr Who together recently. You can tell from his playing. I asked him what was happening:
“The TARDIS has landed on the garage! It’s a red TARDIS!”
It then took off again and went spinning round the room before landing again!
He insisted on carrying the basket to do the shopping!
This was last Sunday in Sydney. Monster requested we take his photo – so we did!
And this is him posing for another photo, looking a right cool dude in his hat and sunglasses!
This week has been hot. Probably the hottest since we’ve been here. So we’ve done a fair bit of staying indoors and trying to keep cool.
I built Monster a big train track to play with while we watched the new Thomas DVD that we borrowed from the library – Thomas and the Blue Mountain Mystery.
Monster wanted to help wrap presents so I gave him his own pieces of paper and tape to play with.
We took a trip to the Post Office and took his scooter instead of the buggy. This was us waiting at the bus stop.
Since it was getting fairly late we decided to surprise Daddy by calling into his office on the way back to walk/scoot home with him!
We went to the shopping centre to meet Reggie Egg from Reading Eggs. Monster did not like big Reggie. He says he likes tiny Reggie (as he appears on books and the computer)!
And because it’s been so hot we’ve been swimming every day. Monster has been practising and his swimming teacher was very impressed with him this week.
He is much better at staying horizontal and kicking and splashing his legs now.
He can also do this:
Jumping in without holding anybody’s hand! (it took lots of jumps to get a photo mid-air!!) He’s very proud of himself 🙂
