I'm soccer crazy!

Everybody who knows me knows i love to kick a ball around. In the heath or in the flat - it doesn't matter where. If there's a ball within reach i must kick it!

So daddy thought it would be nice to share some pictures of me doing my favorite thing. He hopes you enjoy them!

This one is me in hampstead heath. I'm not kicking here, but I'm pretty psyched.

This one is from when we went to Paris. We were in a square, near a pretty church. There were tourists everywhere.

Here's another one from the same square.

This one is from the other day when it was snowy in London. I was kicking the ball all around hampstead heath. I ran a lot that day!

Here's me posing for the camera. Yayy!

And here's a quick little video of me dribbling the ball on our trip to Stockholm this past summer. I was pretty young then, only about 15 months old. I'm a lot better at it now!

Snow or bust!

There was a bunch of snow the other night when we were walking home from the tube, so I had my first snowball fight! Here's a video of me and mommy and daddy.
xoxooo Merry Christmas!

Time to catch up!

Hi Everybody! Merry Christmas!!

It's been a while since I've posted, the summer and fall have just been too fun. Now that I know how to run and hide and jump and climb better, Mommy ends up pretty tired at the end of the day. And on the weekend, I wear Daddy out too. Daddy and I have started watching football matches on the computer and I love seeing them kick the ball. Whenever there is a goal I yell "Goal!" with glee. So far I've only seen the Tottenham Hotspurs in action, but I'm sure there are more teams in my future.
I have also learned how to scribble and play with Play dough. My favorite thing to do with the play dough is to cut out little coins and then stamp them with patterns. Mommy and I put these into jars and containers and parade them around the living room.

I've also started really being a helper in the kitchen. I have learned how the mop and broom go back and forth and that when we're cooking I can, very carefully, pull my stool up to the counter and watch. Sometimes I get to help stir or put things in.
In September, Mommy and I went to Cologne to visit our friends Sabine, Jan, Annick and Ian. I had so much fun playing with Annick and Ian, even though it was very very cold the whole time we stayed there. We still went to the parks and playgrounds and had a great time. One day we went to Annick's kindergarten and she rode me around on a bicycle for my first time and I LOVED it!
I'm still only going to Gymboree but I'm very busy having fun with my friends Zephyr, Jasmine and Alafair most days. We go to the playground or play at each others' houses.

I'm very much looking forward to Christmas this year. I already have seen and played in the snow. Mommy and I made snowballs yesterday and threw them at the wall in the shower. Oh boy! What fun.
Finally, I have to let everyone know I have discovered a food I love (among many others!) Sweetcorn! Mommy and Daddy let me eat it off the cob and it is delicious AND fun.

Big big hugs and cuddles to everyone! See you all very soon.
XOXO Eamon Howard
