Nuevo Oh Sanko

I have had a great time with my friends here in Australia. I was fortunate to be asked to be in this new "dance company." Thank you to my wonderful husband who sacrificed not being in this company to stay home with Nainoa so that I can pursue one of my dreams of being in a "real" dance company. Enjoy.

Weaning and Independence

I have finally come to the point where I believe that we are both ready to wean off the brrrm brrrm. Last night I told Naiona that brrrm brrrm is only for when the sun is out before his nap. Since he has been going with out it for most nights I know that he doesn't need it to go to sleep. All of our babysitters have successfully put him to sleep. Since we only have 3 1/2 more weeks here in Australia I figure that we keep the nap time nursing, nurse on the plane back to Vegas and that's it. Done. We've left brrrrm brrrm in Australia.

Nainoa has been voicing his independence lately. "Nainoa do it" or "I do it by myself." We have been swimming in the pool lately with water wings. We usually go back and forth to from the jacuzzi to the pool. I usually get out with him and hold his hand down the steps to make sure he doesn't slip and crack his head open. Today he said to me while he was leaving the jacuzzi, "Mommy you stay there. I don't want Mommy." He is a big boy now you see and doesn't need his Mommy to hold his hand. "Okay I'll stay here I replied." Of course I didn't stay in the jacuzzi. I did follow 3 feet behind him and watched him get down on the pool steps by himself and swim out to the middle of the pool. He did really good for a couple of minutes then he turned to me and said, "Mommy come here, hold my hand." Big smile. "Okay Nainoa here I come!"

Steve Irwin's Australia Zoo

Seeing live crocodiles at the Australian Zoo was something else. They are massive. The day we went Steve's Irwin's family performed in the show. It was a trip seeing his wife feeding the crocs let alone his 13 year old daughter! He fed elephants, pet a wombat, rode on his first tea cup ride and then crashed out. What an experience!

Beach! Beach! Beach!

With only 5 more weeks to go we have been trying to take advantage of going living so close to the beach. In 5 weeks time we will be in 110 degree desert weather with no beach around. Nainoa loves being here and has grown so much with all these new experiences. He is talking so much. People can't believe it when I tell them he is just two years old.
Thins he's been saying lately.

Mommy what are you doing?

Mommy come sit with me please.

Daddy got frustrated with the dishes.

Have a good show!!!

Come on let's go!

I want to go to work too! (Usually with tears streaming down as we are leaving for work)

I want to run Mommy.

Things he has been doing lately.

He loves to pretend cook. He likes to put his animals in a bowl and make cake, pancakes or mac n cheese.

He loves to help wash the dishes or help me cook.

He loves to color on everything BUT paper.

He loves loves loves to jump. He especially loves to jump off of things like stairs, buckets, the bed or piles of sand.

Here are some of snap shots of our time at the beach.

Whale Watching

We took Nainoa whale watching a couple of weeks ago. I was a bit nervous to see how he would do. Would he get sick? Will he jump off the boat??? He did great. The boat was huge and we spent a lot of time inside because it was cold and windy. We saw a ton of whales. Nainoa loved coaxing the whales to jump!
