Ordinary and extraordinary

Oto garść zdjęć zrobionych telefonem w ostatnich tygodniach. Zdjęcia na placu zabaw, w ogrodzie, kuchni, tu i tam, zwyczajne i niezwyczajne. :-)

Aren't you all happy that you can take photos with your phones there and then? My parents don't always have the big camera on them so their phones come as a blessing in many ordinary and extraordinary situations. That's how we like to immortalise our little snippets of life and here's a few of the recent ones below.
I am a van driver. I liked the new job so much I wasn't ready to leave the van when it was time to go.
You can play peek-a-boo everywhere if you use your imagination, for example in the playground. My favourite thing at the moment is going up and down the slide.

Climbing the stairs in Royal Festival Hall. There are six levels there and Szymek and I got to level five at which point we decided to have a rest in the children's book corner.
In the sound garden of the Horniman Museum. The museum itself is directed more at older children but they have a mini aquarium and great gardens and they also keep a few farm animals. This is where I saw alpacas and rabbits for the first time. Do you know what an alpaca is and what it looks like?
If you want to sunbathe, don't forget your Oyster card. I like to keep a variety of cards safe in my hands - library cards, store cards, credit cards...
Eating spaghetti while walking around the kitchen. Sometimes food tastes much better when you're on the move.
Pizza and water do go well together. Water goes well with everything, to be honest with you.
Ethan is a friend who lives nearby and we see each other on a regular basis. He is only a month older than me and is a true polyglot as he understands Italian, Romanian and English. Wow!
Playing with Lily in Northampton. Her younger brother, William, was busy doing something else so he isn't in the pic. Their mum and my parents once shared a house. Hopefully we will meet up more often from now on and maybe one day we will all go to sunny Portugal together as that's where their grandparents have a house.
Augusta and mummy met at work and this one was taken at her baby shower a while back. Guess what, she's a mummy now, too and her little boy Nathan is already over a month old.
Happy hugs! I like to have my share of them every day. :-) A note to myself: I need to comb my hair before posing in from of the camera, even though it's just a phone camera!

Little Acre and the Forest of Dean

Oto mała relacja z przemiłego urlopu w pensjonacie dziadków Charlotte blisko Walii. Był wspaniały ogród, owce, karmniki, domki na drzewach, traktory i rowery w lesie w drodze powrotnej. Sami zobaczcie.

Time for a short holiday!
Two weeks ago we drove all the way to Herefordshire to pay Charlotte's grandparents a visit. They own a beautiful, old bed and breakfast surrounded by fields. It's the countryside where they live so there are sheep, bird feeders, tree houses and... tractors where they live. You can read more about the cottage here.
In the magic garden of Nicola and Jeffrey.
Baa Baa!
With daddy way up in the tree.
Tractor racing with Charlotte.
On the way back, we stopped in the nearby Forest of Dean and went for a bike ride. 
There were quite a few pebbles on the trail so it was a bit bumpy but I still enjoyed the trip.
Just a word of warning from my parents if you were to do the same thing - since forests are fairly wild and your mobile signal is often less than perfect, always check what time the car park closes when you're cycling. You might get carried away and have to rush all the way back to the car park like crazy just to find out that... it's open 24/7! :-)

Happy Easter

Mam nadzieję, że cudownie odpoczęliście wspólnie z rodziną w Święta. Niestety nie mam zdjęcia jak jem pisanki, ale zapewniam Was, że rodzice nakręcili z tego krótki film, a moje jajeczko smakowało mi szczególnie pysznie w tych dniach. Wczoraj udaliśmy się w podróż rowerową po okolicy i odkryli dwa wspalniałe parki. Połączyliśmy się też na Skypie z rodziną w Polsce i we Włoszech.

Hope you had a wonderful Easter break with your loved ones. I'm afraid there is no picture of me having an Easter egg but my parents did manage to make a little film instead. I'm a real egg fan these days.
We had lovely weather yesterday and went for a bike ride in our local area, which resulted in discovering two new beautiful parks on our doorstep in Eltham.
We skyped our family in Poland and Italy and it was so good to see everyone at least in this way.

Busy bee

Ojej, długo mnie tu nie było. W związku z tym mały skrót poniżej. W ostatnich tygodniach najbardziej lubię eksperymentować z wodą, czytaj rozlewać ją, nauczyłam się wsiadać na rowerek, uwielbiam jajecznicę i jogurt, ciągle gadam, migam i rozpoznaję coraz więcej części ciała. Co jeszcze? Potrafię się obrócić, wskazuję na siebie na pytanie, gdzie jest Tunia, oraz mam trzy nowe ząbki, czyli w sumie już jedenaście!

I can't believe I haven't posted anything for such a long time. I've been so busy. Read more about it.

Playing with water is my biggest hobby now. Towards the end of meals I like to put food in my glass and drink water from my little cup. I might accidentally spill it every now and then, which means mummy needs to change my clothes quite a bit but she is happy to do that as she knows how much I love to experiment with water.

I learnt how to mount my bike and so I spend a lot of time on it in the kitchen and balcony. I wonder when dad will take me to the park with my cycle.

I got to love scrambled eggs, yoghurt and new vegetables such as courgette, cauliflower and broccoli.

I've been learning to talk but as it's such a big thing I promise you a separate post about it. I'll also write about signing, which I've been doing more and more these days. Another post that's on my mind will be about the body parts I can now recognise.

I can turn around and point to myself when asked where I am. And lastly, I have three more teeth, which makes eleven altogether!
