My view most of the day. So we’re at that stage HK –you are literally always at my ankle and biting me! Occasionally annoying but mostly just really cute. Not sure what to do about the biting - "ouch that hurts mummy" just gets a laugh from you. Hummm might need to toughen up a bit there MK.

Hey little HK - you've just enjoyed your first weekend away. You stayed in your first hotel and stayed with your first baby sitter! But most of the time you just enjoyed having both MK and DK around to give you attention. We visited the very pretty country town of Kynton. DK went fishing, MK when antiquing and you laughed out loud when seeing your first sheep. Above we are visiting the organic farm hoping to show you some pigs ... no luck though it was too cold and they stayed in bed! I think they would have given you a laugh too - either that or you'd yell at them to get "OUT" as you seem to do to all animals you see at the moment. I can't imagine where you picked that up....
