Sing It

Cal loves singing his songs these days. He requests them and then chimes in with the more exciting words, STAR HIGH DIAMOND SKY. And there's always applause at the end.

Little star
Get your camera out of my face

These Guys

How great is this photo? And how lucky am I?

Autumn In Amsterdam

This month has been a real season of growth for Cal. Every day we see him edge closer towards boyhood and those fun years of him being a kid with a life of his own.

This past month he joined the ranks of people who ride their scooters, and don’t just push them. So now David and I can add ‘created independent life-form that can control wheeled vehicle’ to our list of life accomplishments. Did I make that? I wonder as I watch him speed away from us into his own life. It’s so exhilarating when he’s travelling so fast that I have to run to keep up with him.

And the other morning Cal discovered The Sleep-In. “Cal are you coming into bed to give me a cuddle?” I called when I heard him wake. “More sleepy,” he called back and stayed in bed for another 15 minutes. Ha. He really is a human being.

And “Cal miss you,” became “I love Mummy & Daddy.” That was also nice. 


Shitty photos, camera's in the shop again..

Cal's Camping Adventure!

Last week Cal had his first camping adventure with Oma and Opa, which by all accounts was a roaring success. He's still talking about Oma and Opa's tent. Here's some pics from the fun week.

Sleep All Summer

When it comes to Cal's day nap we're still trying to find the right mixture. If it was up to him he'd sleep 2.5 hours during the day and stay up till 10pm. To get him in bed by 8-8.30pm we try to limit his nap to an hour but it's almost impossible to wake him up. He's like a hungover teenager and responds to annoying questions like, "Honey don't you think it's time to get up?" with an efficient shake of the head before covering his eyes with an elbow and rolling over. If I'm really persistent, I'll get a "Mummy Go Way."

A New Place To Swim

Poor me is stuck inside with a pile of work, but David and Cal found a lovely new place to swim. Het Twiske is a small lake about 15 mins drive north of the city.

First Compliment

This morning I put on a dress I haven't worn in a while and when I walked into the living room Cal looked up at me and said, "Nice T-shirt!"
Be careful Cal, I'll eat you up I love you so
