ewaawa = The song "Zousan the Elephant" by Elizabeth Mitchell. Nola requests elephant whenever she is sad or sick or just wants a cuddle. It's been her favourite song since really little, never failing to calm and soothe her.
gop = stop - multipurpose
wahwah = milk
gom = gone
geegee = jesus
wuvoo = love you
gagoo mama = thank you mama
ooop = soup
oo - ooos, baa baaas and meeowws = monkeys, sheep and cats (she identifies animals by the sounds they make)
Her favourite animal are owls like Fina's was at the same age. She loves their "big wownd aeyees".
She tries to do ballet practice with her sisters now, I can't actually describe how cute this is.
She loves to roly-poly.
She loves to draw constantly, or paint, or just plunge her hand into the water jar or dip her fingers in the watercolors.
She very much dislikes bedtimes. And sleeping in general. There is just too much fun stuff to do when you're awake right?
Today she woke after nap time and ran up to Fina shouting Beena, Beena, wuvoo, wuvoo, kissumee now (see above for translation)
She loves to drop her animals and blankets out of her cot while innocently saying Dwopt it and obviously expecting it to be picked up in a timely manner.
She loves the i-pad (which she is not really allowed to use) because it has "picters". She calls the i-pad a Bubabee.
When Tani gently tells her for the 19th time in a row that she can't play with the Bubabee she tilts her head and in a very super cute, optimistically high pitched voice says, clear as day i-pad?
She does not take to meals but loves to snack on crunchy foods such as veggie sticks, fruit, bread sticks, cereals, rice crackers and prawn crackers.
She knows that the girls will do anything for her and is a wee bit of a princess (in the nicest possible way)
She loves wool roving and often tries to steal a piece and run off with it saying softie, softie. She loves to rub soft things on her cheek and nose.
She has a favourite blankie which is super soft.
If she grabs something she is not meant to have she will run with it and throw it as soon as you catch up with her.
Today, she did her first wee wee in her potty!!! We are all very proud.
But this Mama is a little silly and sad too knowing that she is just growing up too fast already.
Here is the beginnings of a little vest for Nola.
I'm using some lush Rowan Savannah DK cotton /silk yarn in turquoise.
