Farmor gave us both the same clothes for Xmas. We tried sitting on the steps today for a photo but it was so windy Amaia thought she had to hold her hair on!
I've got glasses now like my big brother. For the first half hour I was very pleased with them but now I am not so sure - it is hard to get used to focusing when you have been used to doing it without glasses. Mummy and Daddy say Léon took a whole week to get used to his so I am sure they will be ok by the time Farmor and Großvater come.
Daddy spent today painting our puppet theatre. We were given the job of supervising his work. I thought he was doing a good job but Amaia was looking at little more disapproving - maybe he wasn't working fast enough for her liking!
Mummy took us and Bopster to the windfarm yesterday. We like to go there sometimes to walk because it is pretty. I forgot to take my money with me to buy a windmill of my own in the shop so I want to go back again very soon.
Last weekend our cousin came from Denmark to stay. We had fun dressing up together and eating at our own special table. We had a picnic on the beach and ate lots of raspberries in our garden.We are sad that we don't see her more often.
I like to help mummy with the washing. I am particularly fascinated by the pegs used to hang it up. There seems to be a little spring in the middle of each peg. Once you take the spring out, they don't seem to work any more. It is funny, no matter how many of them you take apart, they all seem to function in quite the same way!
This is my mummy. She is called Phyllis. I have decided I'd rather call her Emily. I often shout Emily and she doesn't turn round. That's a bit weird - surely she should know that's what I have decided to call her!
Sweetcorn tastes really nice barbecued. It also has strange cleansing properties. I had drawn all over my hands with green permanent marker and mummy had given up with both soap and baby wipes just before dinner. Straight after I ate the sweetcorn though, everyone noticed my hands were clean again. Strange!
So Mummy took me to the dentist today - what a stupid man!
I was standing there holding onto his stool while he was looking in Léon's mouth and he said - he wasn't worried about checking any of mum's kids except for 'him there' pointing at me! Him??? I'm a girl. Do I look like a boy? How many boys do you know who wear purple tights and t-shirts, how many wear dungaree dresses for that matter? What a silly little man he is!
Mummy had a basket of clothes pegs sitting on the patio outside her bedroom door. I think clothes pegs are quite fascinating. I am particularly curious about the mechanism holding them together and causing them to open and then spring closed. I took about a third of them apart just to check exactly how they worked. Mummy wasn't the least bit pleased with me but I heard Daddy saying 'I bet Amaia is going to grow up to be an engineer', so I guess he is proud of me!
We went for a walk in Culzean on Saturday. There were hundreds of flowers on the ground. They were purple. Mummy kept calling them 'bluebells'. That is a stupid name for them. I refused to call them that. I decided to call them 'purple bells'.
