Terrible Two's

That camera is MINE!, everything is mine, followed by a high pitched squeal.

The word NO! has entered the vocabulary along with all of the other new words and he enjoys using this new found word more than any others. He has also discovered screaming and will do so whenever something doesn't go the way he wants it too. He would like to do everything himself this includes dressing, eating and walking where ever he wants to go by himself. He will tell me and any other adult in his vicinity to stay/leave or sit/stand. He's like a little general and I can see him being the playground boss.

A new IKEA opened up in Larissa, so of course we had to go on opening day. Larissa is about one and a half hours away from Kalampaka and now pretty much has everything one could possibly need.
Here Nik is enjoying a kiddie bed, no prompting needed he was tired and if there weren't so many people walking by he would have gone to sleep. He also had fun playing with the toys that they had out and he could not be separated from a stuffed dog, so of course that was one of our purchases.
We had lunch in the IKEA restaurant (not very good, the pasta was like rubber) but they gave us a free ticket for some ice cream and they were handing out Fantas when we exited.

I would also like to tell everyone that Nik is speaking a new word almost every day. So far we have: cracker, coke, soccer, asteri (star), jacke (jacket). He also likes to make all of the animal sounds and we go on drives to see chickens, horses, lambs, turkeys and goats. The fun part is when we serve meat he makes the sound of what he is eating, he likes kookoo (chicken), ba (lamb), and moo (cow/beef). He also makes the sound for fish but I don't know how to write that one down.

See you soon.

How old are you?

Practicing for the States when people ask how old he is.
ONE, okay almost two, but we will still get into some places for FREE.
Love being under the age of two.

New Tools

Some new tools for Nik.
He likes to work just like his Greek Grandpa.
The drill is now a little worse for the wear having been thrown several times, but both the drill and saw move and make noise.
