Christina having a good go at her milk bottle.
Ava got these two of Christina wriggling around in bed.
It turns out that Arnold really does have a kid named Christina, imagine that.

My two favorite little rhymes in the whole world. I can’t remember who did them to me when I was younger.

Ava taught me this little song that kids here often learn, it roughly translates as, “Tricyle, goes so fast, with an old lady sitting on it. She wants 5 cents, but gives you a dollar, don’t you think that’s really strange.” It loses all the fun in English though.

Ava got this little song from TV I think.
2006 08 04 – Ka da che.flv
This little song comes from a commercial.

She is so cute and chubby, I just had to say it in the nicest way possible.
Ava had seen this swing on the internet but decided not to get it as it seemed like a little too much. To our surprise, Alan and Angela had one and offered it to us for Christina to use. It keeps her busy being swung around like that. I think Lydia might have missed it a little though.

Ava caught Christina lying around making cooing sounds.

Obviously something against dad, but I had pretty much passed out.
Michelle is my sister-in-law and keeps a site about her and my brother’s baby Sage.
Simon Michel was one of the biker mice at school and we rode often until I left for Taiwan all those years ago.
Bronwyn Beckett I know from church.
If you want a blog/website like Simon and Michelle’s you can sign up at my blogging site.
That’s the short list, if you have a blog or website or something of that nature comment or send me an email and I’ll add you to my friends list.
According to Clint Garside, the Westville Boys’ High School (my high school) 10 year reunion is coming up on the 4th of August.
It’s been a long time since I’ve seen many of the people from school. It would be nice to catch up and see some of them, but that won’t be possible with the plans to go to James and Michelle’s wedding at the end of March next year. I guess I’ll have to wait for the 25 year reunion.
I’m not sure how many of my friends will make it back as many are not in South Africa at the moment. Anyways, life goes on…
Finally after a very long wait my two lovely ladies are back in Taipei.
We drove back from Tainan on Monday and settled back into things. Well, not quite settled, Ava was not in the least impressed with the tiny amount of housework I had done and we spent some time putting things in their place.
The cot, new cupboard, little baby rocking chair and baby toys all arrived on Tuesday and much of the day was spent putting the shelves up and cleaning up the house some more and making place for all the baby stuff which has come back to Taipei with them.
I am still on holiday this week except for the extra classes that I do on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
Christina is settling in fine and I’m glad that we picked this week for her to come back rather than a normal work week, otherwise things could be very tiring.
Again, I’ll get some pictures of Christina and her various little playthings on as soon as possible, which is really not that soon I guess.
Time flies, like it always does. This site, which was really a gift to Ava, but probably more fun for me has now been up for two years. Although I don’t update it too often it is my official place on the internet.
