Time flies

Time does fly, it's the end of August already. Henrik will be two in two weeks from next Monday and David just had his 30th last Sunday! Can't believe Henrik is already two! I can't believe David is 30 either!!! We were 19 when we met...

We had a lovely weekend celebrating David's birthday. Ol(iver) and Becky & Amy came up for the weekend. On Saturday night we cooked a sea food paella on a bbq with lobster and everything. We also discovered that it is not good to put the lobster in too deep water...On Sunday we had everyone from church around for cakes and buns. I'd baked little bit everyday for the last couple of weeks so we had plenty of cakes which is good as we had 50+ people around. Lots of fun and lots of washing up - thank God for dishwashers :)

No no no - on development of speech

One of Henrik's latest words is no. Everything is no...Would you like to go to bed? No, no, no! Digger is also an other useful word that has appeared in his vocabulary this week. One day he was pretending to be on the phone to someone and the only identifiable word in his 'conversation' was digger at very regular intervals. He is still calling ankka (duck) kakka (poo) which is not such an issue as no-one else usually understands him. Every now and then when we are walking about and he sees a bird he shouts out in very delighted manner kakka!!!

One of the funniest things is that when Henrik is just chatting away everyone thinks he is speaking in Finnish...but he is to their disappointment just chattering away in his own language :)
