out of the mouths of babes

October 5, 2013 at 9:51 pm 5 comments

It’s amusing how forthright little ones can be once they start talking, issuing orders to ‘move‘, ‘sit there‘, ‘read it‘, ‘get it‘.  It’s super cute watching E’s language unfold: he pronounces almost all words so clearly it’s strange to think only a few months ago we were ”wallering wowers’ and ‘eatin olibs’‘.  Below are just some of the phrases he comes out with regularly (click on the Wordle to enlarge for easier reading)

It’s amazing being able to have conversations with E, offering choices and seeing the determination with which he makes himself understood.  If you happened to overhear him excitedly saying ‘‘want to look the babies’‘ you’d understandably be puzzled.  Mumma on the other hand simply smiles in anticipation of the big grin and funny dance he’ll be doing within seconds of these Evian babies advert starting.

    How about last Wednesday, tapped on garage door, and said
    “knock knock who’s there”. What else have you been teaching him?

And finally a fab spirally path made with mosaic stepping stones using recycled materials like bottle tops, buttons and straws (from a show garden @bbcgwlive on 2005) #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #gardenersworldlive #mosaicsteppingstones #mosaicart Beautiful show garden from @bbcgwlive 2005.  Wouldn't this make a fab addition to your allotment! Link in bio for more pictures 
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #allotmentgardening #paintedtyregardenplanters #paintedtyres #gardenersworldlive These fab painted tyre planters were part of a show garden at @bbcgwlive in 2005.  They're teaching me a thing or too about blog traffic as I try to get my head around SEO and why some posts have lots of hits and some have none.  2826 people have searched for painted tyres since I shared it in 2011 as a #wordlesswednesday post.  I've now added in some copy about the day and some of the other photos.  Just shows that adding useful titles to your images can be as helpful as writing relevant copy!

#gloucesterlife #indoorsnowplay #childhoodunplugged A funny little momento from our walk on Crosby beach - holding hands and gazing out to sea :0). #anotherplaceanthonygormley #nipitinthebudblog #visitingliverpool A conversation with @hoshistarhoshistarhoshistar today reminded me of a visit to Liverpool in 2010.  100 cast iron, life size figures spread out along three kilometres of Crosby beach and stretching one kilometre out to sea.  Spectacular.  It's worth checking tide times if you want to be able to walk along the beach.
