The alphabet according to wilfred

I have a new favourite pastime – playing the alphabet game with foam letters.

I have a set in the bath and a set in the kitchen. I am now very good at recognising many of the letters and identify them through word association in the following order (the ones I don’t know I simply ignore):

A – Apple

B- bus

C – cat

D – dog

E- elephant

F – fish

H – house

G – garden

I – i

J – juice

K – kangaroo

M – mummy


N – naughty

O – orange

Q – queen

R – r

S- snake

T – teeth

U – umbrella

W – Wilfred

X – kiss

Jungle Jungle

I had an impromptu day off nursery as the fire alarm wouldn’t stop going off. As an extra special treat the big M took me to Jungle Jungle indoor playground. As you can see – it was awful.


Swiss contingent

On Thursday I spent the day meeting my god brother.  He is over visiting fromSwitzerland. Apparently it snows a lot there (when I went it was really hot).

He is still really little – a few months old. I am told that we’ll have something even smaller at our house in a few weeks time.

I was very good and shook his hand and gave him some toys to play with – all good practice!

It was nice to see my godmother too. She spent lots of time playing with me – cars. My current favourite.

 We also went for a walk and saw a tractor. Tractors are a big favourite too – particularly since I got a singing John Deere for Christmas.

Hopefully we’ll see them all again soon.

Merry belated Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone! Sorry for the tardiness of the blog. It’s been a hectic few days… So many new toys, so little time!

I had an amazing Christmas!


On Christmas Eve the weather was still really mild so we took Gran-Gran for a walk around Stourhead. It was one of her favourite walks when she lived in Dorset and Grandpa was still alive. We worked out that she hasn’t been for around 17 years!!! Crazy! My mind can’t comprehend that long!

Before bedtime I put out a carrot for Rudolph, a mince pie and a glass of sweet wine for Father Christmas.

  I put it in the dining room as I figured that’s the main chimney in our house. I also put my empty stocking by the fireplace in my room in the hopes that he pays me a visit as on the whole I’ve been a very good boy this year!!

 And low and behold when I woke up the stocking was full of pressies… Magic!! Also the carrot and mince pie were half eaten – Father Christnas must have been thirsty though as the wine was all gone!

 We went to Church early doors and then I had a nap when we got home as I got up super early. After a sleep pitstop I got to open my stocking presents – which was really fun as we all took it in turns to open a present whilst eating smoked salmon and caviar and nibbles. I then had a few hours to play with my new toys. The domino train and ducks-all-in-a-row were my favourite. That said I was quite keen on the space hopper and play dough too. Not to mention the toy cars and bike.

GAS turned up at 3 pm and then we had lunch at 4, which was yummy…

 And then more presents … Yay!!! I love opening presents. Shame I now have to wait almost a year before I get any more!

Here’s Milly getting into the swing of present opening!

 I had a bit of a late night as presents took quite a while and I wanted to play with them but I did go straight to sleep!

The next day – no presents 😦 but we did get to go to the theatre to something called a pantomime. The big M was really excited. She loved it – as did we all. It was Sleeping Beauty and there was singing and dancing and shouting and fire breathing dragons and water spraying everywhere and even a homage to Jeremy Kyle!

On Sunday the big D and I built my new bed which gran-gran gave me for Christmas!

  It’s huge! And very clever. Apparently when I’m a bit bigger we turn it upside down and it becomes a cabin bunk. I am just playing in it at the moment but I intend to start having naps in it soon. I can’t wait to sleep in it properly.


On Monday Gran-gran and the big D got up super early to go to the airport so the big m and I stayed at home and played with my new toys and made my thank you cards – I discovered a new artistic medium – painting with toy cars! Super fun and super messy- yay!!!

Then today we went to feed the ducks and play at the playground at ninesprings in Yeovil. We haven’t been before and it’s really good so we’ll def be back soon

 
As you can see I’ve had a busy old time of it and I’m now looking forward to New Year!

Happy Day to me!

Yesterday was was my ‘happy day’ and I sung the happy (birth)day song all day.

I had a lie in until 7 and then had a special birthday breakfast – a little bit of everything. I also opened my last happy day count down calendar present given to me my my grandparents so now have a full set of happy day toys.


Next up we went to the Haynes motor museum. There were lots of cars!


And I got to drive round the site in my very own truck.


And ride a motorbike.

 After a pit stop at the cafe we returned home for a quick nap.

At teatime we had my birthday cake – a George cake made by the big M.


  We then opened my presents.

 I loved them all – and am now playing with everything so I don’t want to go to bed.

The big d also hung my curtains which I got for my birthday. They make my bedroom look very smart!

I wish it was a happy day everyday!

Gallopy, gallopy, gallopy

this week’s theme seems be transport. On Monday I blogged about my new car, today I’m on horseback (and apparently I only have one set of clothes, judging by this photo and the last one!)

  
This is Pedro, the new ‘pet’ of my best friend’s parents. They’ve got him for the imminent arrival of their new grandchild, but I thought only prudent to break him in. I loved him. I was very good at galloping. Can’t wait for the best time we go for lunch!!!
