bon voyage dada

You and DK have a little routine - each morning after your feed you head down to Karla's cafe on the corner for a coffee while MK has some quite time.


But this morning was a bit special because your DK is off on a big work trip soon and he will be gone for 12 whole sleeps.  So this time MK came too and we had a lovely breakfast.  MK and DK enjoyed a cooked breakfast and coffee and you grabbed at stuff - your rattle, Karla's necklace, MK's hair - its your new thing - we call it the "gimme gimme gimme" stage.

We are going to fly up to Queensland this afternoon to hang out with your Grandma and Granddada while DK's away.  I better go get you packed...
