Proud as punch

Hey Leo, you're about to pass the marker of 3 years and 3 months and I cannot believe all the truly beautiful things you can do.  You, little guy, are amazing and as parents we're as proud as punch.


In no particular order:-
  • Travel on a plane
  • Journey in a car for up to 8 hours without too much of an issue
  • Ride a train in style
  • Sit on the top deck and at the front of a double decker bus
  • Paddle a kayak around a friend's outdoor swimming pool
  • Travel on the foot board of the vespa
  • Smash plastic balls with your plastic golf club in quick succession
  • Dribble and kick a football
  • Bounce on a trampoline without a net with a wicked bounce
  • Will say, 'excuse me' (or on a bad day - move out of the way)
  • Bob about in a pool with your floaty jacket on
  • Ride your bike all on your own
  • Use your imagination with clarity and beauty
  • Climb the wall at the park with just those little moulded rocks to hold on to
  • Bat a ball
  • Laugh like a drain
  • Rocket down the scary tube slide (you refused to do this until a month ago)
  • Traverse the zig zag frame that's high off the ground at the park
  • Mimic riding a motorbike
  • Sleep through the night (apart from when you rise at 5am - that really doesn't count)
  • After finishing your meal you'll ask, 'please can I get down'
  • Scoot barefoot on your scooter with wild abandon
  • Are becoming a little more generous with sharing (upon reflection we're still working on this)
  • Can drink half a litre of banana milk in seconds flat
  • Identify all those wild animals that cruise the landscape of your home in Africa
  • Talk with your eyes

You still have a blonde streak, but hey, that's absolutely OK.  It means in our eyes you're not 100% bullet proof and that suits us just fine, because if you were you wouldn't need us and that is not up for question.  Ever.

We love you.
