25 JULY 2008

Hello and welcome to Ned's News. I'm Ned Brown.

We have a new home! I have a new room and there's a front yard and a backyard that I can play in. Sam and I have our very own playroom which has a TV just for us. Right now that's even more excellent because the TV doesn't pick up ABC so instead of only being able to watch a 15 minute cartoon, Mum and Dad have to put a Wiggles video on for me!

I helped unpack. Daddy would hand me my toys and I'd load them into my little red wagon and push them into my room and unload them.

I have done my Wah Wah Wah Toot Toot Toot chicken dance in every room as well as the backyard. I started teaching it to Sam this morning, but he wasn't very good.

Something very funny happened this morning! I was in the backyard talking to Gordon the Garden Gnome (that's right!!! He lives in our backyard!! Mummy's hoping he grows lots of flowers here like he does on TV.) Anyway, I was talking to Gordon about how cold it was and all this white smoke started coming out of my mouth! It was so funny.. it just kept coming and coming and coming!

I'm really loving childcare. In the mornings, I now tell Mummy and Daddy to go and leave me to have fun. But it takes AGES to get to there now so I try and help out by singing a song.. the same song.. for the whole hour's trip. Sam likes it.

That is all the news for today.
Hello and welcome to Sam's Sport. I'm Sam Brown.

I am now 6.5 kg and 64 cm long. Because I'm such a big boy, I have my very own room in the new house. It's still a bit bare. Mum and Dad have to buy me some shelves and a nice soft rug. I decided to show them how big I am by sleeping right through the night last night and the night before. Ned woke me up with all his noise yesterday morning and Mummy woke me up this morning because she had to feed me before taking Ned to childcare.

I'm still Flopsy. My doctor said it's ok and that I'm just a ragdoll, but that I'm going to be a bit slow with reaching my physical milestones like rolling and crawling.

I haven't been helping very much with unpacking. In fact, I've decided I much prefer to be cuddled and carried around while I'm awake than left in the rocker or on the floor, so Mummy's complaining that she's not getting much done.

That is all the news for today.
