Kaia and the trumpet

Last sunday I spent the afternoon at Manly Oval watching my boyfriend's brother's cricket match with his family. As Kaia, my nephew of sorts, was getting restless I decided to take him for a walk. For those who don't know Kaia is Daria's (from Three little birds) 2.5 year child and he is pretty cute but very naughty sometimes.

Anyway, we were walking along, playing in the dirt and looking at the trees when someone played the trumpet. Then without prompting he picks up this pine needle type thing and starts playing it like a trumpet. Well...making trumpeting noises with it put to his mouth! How cute and clever is that!!! I was amazed.

Sigh. He was so cute on sunday. He would ask to hold my hand when we were down steep hills and singing songs. And playing in the dirt. Though for some reason he has now taken to calling me Dorothy - as in Dorothy the dinosaur from the wiggles!!!

I don't know if I want him to grow up too much more!
