Cute babeez!

My folks very generously looked after Dom yesterday while Debbie and I went a-visiting. We saw Olive and her parents, who were all well and cute (Olive was cutest) and Willa and her parents, who were impressively relaxed and well for parents of a 1 month old. Olive and Willa are good babby. While we were visiting a moose tried to get smooches from Willa, but was blocked by deft fending skillz.

Some cool kids

I love this photo. I have no idea how it came to be in my possession, but I love it :-)

Preschool - day 2

Dom just finished his 2nd half-day of preschool, and it went very well indeed. It's a lovely place with excellent staff and he seems to be starting to settle in :-)

Evidence on his clothes suggests some painting may have taken place, and we were told of his love for "unpacking things and moving them around". This is a habit we notice most often at home when attempting to tidy up :-)

Tauranga is fun!

Dominic and I are on holiday in Tuaranga with Dom's grandparents. It's been a lovely, busy couple of days :-) We're flying back to Wellington later today taking some very fond memories and a few extra kilos with us...

Brought to you by the letter B

First up is a photo of Dom on a bee ride, taken (I think) when he went on a farm walk at Lindale with his granny and mother.

Next is the ever-popular bridge over the Waikanae river. Strolling along the riverside, throwing rocks into the water (from the bank, not off the bridge), and seeing horses and plants and ducks is a lot of fun.

And lastly, bed. After a tiring day's travel down to Christchurch, replete with delays and gate changes and meltdowns and turbulence, Dom cooled off and settled in at his uncle's house with a bit of down time and snacks in bed.
