Cute Stuff

In the order I remember it in :P

When Josh had gone off on one of his site visits, Tao got hold of my mobile and toddled off, holding the phone behind his head (coz that's how you talk on the phone) and said "Daddy?" I would have called Josh but he was in the site visit at the time :)

Tao brought me the phone catalogue he'd been looking at. I told him it was a phone catalogue. He pointed to a photo of an odd looking mobile, I told him it was a phone. He walked off with the catalogue to his ear.

I saw Tao run off behind the futon with his cricket bat, then duck down and look under the cat scratching post box behind the futon. A bit later he starrted stabbing the cricket bat around under it. I figured maybe he was just trying to post the cricket bat. He checked again, then stabbed again. I wondered, what the hell is he doing? A bit later I saw a tennis ball pop out from under the cat box O_O

Aww he's growing up

Haven't posted for a month. Okay, so it's been a combination of me being slack, me doing other things and me running after a very intelligent and very curious little monkeyrat :)

Tao's managed to work out his Tupperware shape sorter, though he can only handle 3-4 shapes out at a time to put back in, if you take all of them out he gets all happy and scatters them to the far reaches of the room. If he can't figure out where a shape goes, he tries the next best match, or just shoves it where it will fit on the off chance it goes in (which it never does).

12 Months of Tao

The little guy's birthday is TOMORROW. Holy hell, we've been parents for a year O_O To commemorate the cuteness, I've picked one (you have no idea how bloody hard that was) photo from each month of his life thus far and present you with:

The Day Approaches

In nine days, Josh and I will have been parents for a whole year o_O

As expected, the little one has been keeping me on my toes. Not a bad thing really, and I've been enjoying it so far, in spite of people telling me how much I'm going to have to watch out etc. He toddles around oh so cutely with his arms out for balance in stereotypical baby fashion. His favourite games are peekaboo and to toddle at me as fast as he can with his arms stretched out and collapse giggling into my arms :)

Nup!

[imported from livejournal and backdated]

Josh and Tao were in the shower earlier when I heard Josh laughing loudly, and yelling for me. I went in there to see what was so funny (plus I was going to jump in there soon anyway). Apparently Josh had been wanting to wash his hair, so he asked Tao if it was all right if he put him down. Tao had looked Josh in the eye, shaken his head and said "Nup!"

He didn't want to do it for me, but he did shake his head a few times in there, probably because we were horribly amused by it. Tried to get him to nod and associate it with "yes". He did attempt the nod, and headbutted me.

Still cute :)
