Learn Kaylee’s Lingo

As Kaylee is now 26 months old (2 years, 1 month, 3 weeks, 3 days to be exact) she has her own style of talk. So just like we did for Joshua around the same age, we thought we better do the same for Kaylee.

So here is a chart of her most commonly spoken vocabulary.

Num nar – Food (feed me)
Marma – Marmite, but she means Jam
Bobble – Bottle of milk
Wa wa – Water
Nana – Banana
Apoo – Apple
Pee – Pear

Mumma – Mum
Daddy – Dad
Da Da – Joshua
Deylee – Kaylee
Nanny – Mandy (Kim’s friend)
Ella – Mandy’s daughter Bella

Mi Mar – Micky Mouse
Darlie – Dora

Airpeen – Airplane
Apee – iPad
Weewe – Kiwi (soft toy)
Lulu – Old neighbours dog
Bubba – Our cat Busta

Ah oh – Whoops
Peeze – Please
Ta – Thank you

Testing other uses for my GoPro HD

I’ve recently been testing some other uses for the GoPro HD Hero other than filming footage from onboard my motorcycle or luging down a hill in Rotorua.

Normally when you search for GoPro on YouTube you’ll be presented with videos of Skydiving, Base jumping, Motorsports, Watersports and many other adventurous, adrenaline seeking activities. Continue reading Testing other uses for my GoPro HD

Kaylee Rae Hodge

Introducing Kaylee Rae Hodge.

We arrived at the Rotorua Hospital just before 11am on the morning of June 18, 2009. We were quickly shown to our room (room nine) in the perinatal ward of the hospital as the birthing ward was all full up.
After some initial consults from staff midwifes, the anesthialogist and the head surgeon for the day, we were quickly being whisked off to theatre to get prepped for surgery.
Kim was a real trouper and Graham, our midwife midhusband took loads of photos for us during the surgery.
Obviously we can’t share any of them with you due to this site being child friendly…

Will add some more info and photos later.
Gotta get back to the hospital.
