Here is littlest lamby reading her Christmas book "1 is One" by Tasha Tudor.
She loves to pretend read and is really intrigued by words.
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
aa - 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 practise with her sisters now, I can't actually describe how cute this is, but her favourite moves are leg lifts and roly polys.
She loves to draw constantly, or paint, or just plunge her hand into the water jar or dip her fingers in the watercolours.
She very much dislikes bedtimes in particular. And sleeping in general. Well 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 Tani's i-pad (which she is not 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.
Miss, messy hair :) But look how a cute smile can compensate for practically anything.
Finally, on to the knitting side of things... Here is the begginings of a little vest for Nola. I'm using many features of the Milo but have adjusted it to be made on straight needles and from the bottom up.
It has a little panel of owl cable especially for my little owl lover :)
I'm using some lush Rowan Savannah DK cotton /silk yarn which I grabbed by the armful when I saw it on sale for half price at my local yarn shop. I had, had my eye on this beautiful turquoise ( my favourite alongwithyellow) colour for some time but couldn't justify the £6 for 50 gram price tag.
Happily I now have enough for Nola's little vest and maybe some leg warmers with the surplus for some little person's early spring birthday...shhhh :)
Yes, I'm back in a happy knitting groove :)
I found this over at Pinterest the other day... How wonderful is this! Love it!
