♥ loves - books, playing with his dinosaur, playing with his dad, talking on the phone, curious george, climbing on everything he sees, giving mommy & daddy pluto's, he loves to clean especially using the little hand hoover, he also love open and closing bottles (the twist & turn kind) and he loves to laugh at things he finds funny (like his little friends or even curious george).
♥ milestones - independent: if he sees me eating food with a fork, he wants to do the same (and he is not too bad at it), if i eat a sandwich, he wants to eat it the same way i do, can keep himself busy with small things (that's normally not his toys), like stuffing pom-poms in a hole in the sofa or ripping paper in tiny pieces and then putting them into a bowl (or any other hole he can find).  he also understands us so well even if we talk to him in english or afrikaans.

i love this age he is at now - everything is such a challenge but it's great!

favourites of january

january was a month of wayne & i getting baptised; us all being ill (and still trying to get over it), riley starting his new football classes; riley saying more and more words; wayne working so hard; missing our families SO much and being actually glad that january is over. 

a church in our area 

riley at his football lessons.  i asked him to pose for this photo and he stood like this and said 'ball'
