This Is How We Eat Ramen!

Today Ben made some Ramen (2-minute noodles) and Cyndi wanted some. So he put some in a bowl for her and she played with it. I am not sure how it happened but when I looked again, she was eating her Ramen right off her high chair. I tried to take a video but she would not do it (Video 1). Then I 'hid' the camera behind my flowers and took another video (Video 2). She ate the Ramen off the high chair again when she thought that she was not being videoed.

Cyndi's New Skirt

Yesterday Ouma, Cyndi and I went to Walmart. I needed to pick up some supplies for two dresses that I am going to make for Cyndi this coming week. We got what I needed and we were looking at patterns and a few other things when I found some cute material. I picked it up so I could check out the price. It was $1/yard. I turned to Ouma and asked her what she thought of the material, she liked it but not very much for Cyndi. She thought that it was to 'old' for her. Then I told her the price and we both agreed that it was wonderful and would make a cute skirt. After Walmart we put Cyndi to bed and I made her this little skirt:

I think that she looks stunning - but then I am biased!

A close up of the material. Even though it might be to 'old' for Cyndi, I think that she pulls it off very well. It just goes to show that she can really wear anything and make it look good!

Cyndi Making Pizza

Last night we made pizza. Cyndi had so much fun making a little pizza for herself. We put a little bit of different toppings in a bowl and let her do what she wanted.

Cyndi showing me her mushroom. Most of her toppings went into her mouth before they got to the pizza.

Cutting her pizza

Cyndi could not wait until the pizza was cut to dig in

Eating her pizza


Cyndi went to bed before her pizza was done so this morning we put the pizza back into the oven and let her take it out. The oven and pizza were cold!

Cyndi Saying Octopus

Cyndi learnt to say the word 'octopus' when she was at the aquarium. You have to listen closely because there is a lot of background noise.

The Living Planet Aquarium

A few weeks ago we took Cyndi to the aquarium. She loved most of it. There were a few creatures that she did not enjoy at all. But over all it was great fun!

Find the Bull Frog

Cyndi was scared of the frog. All the other kids would climb on it and have their pictures taken.

There was a little play area. At first Cyndi would not go and play but after a few minutes, we could not get her out of the play area.

Cyndi Being Cyndi

Here are two videos of Cyndi. She was 'singing' to a video on YouTube and I tried to record it. She also dances a little and then she just chats and plays with the cats.
