I don’t know where my head was but I forgot to mention the most important thing:
We are finally in the “NO” world. Vanie finally learned to say the word “NO” and repeats in nonstop now. It doesn’t matter if he likes something or not, he first says “no” and then proceeds to trying it out. The Bulgarian word for “no” is “ne” but for some reason Vanie says “no”. His version is more like “Noooo,nooo,noo,no” as if he is singing it. Not sure how he picked up the English version of the word since we don’t use it as often as the Bulgarian word. Want it or not… that’s all we hear all day long!
Also, his new thing is to “hide” from us. His version of hiding is to put his hands in front of his closed eyes and thinks he is hidden and we can’t find him once his eyes are closed. It’s hilarious and so sweet at the same time.
Oh and in the picture below, our good friends Jeni & Stilian gave Vanie a bike as a present this week. you can only imagine it was a big hit. What else can a boy ask for... (notice how there is only one shoe in the middle of the pic? - well, that's the standard at home lately, we can only find one of the shoes of a pair... still searching for the missing ones (and in some cases oh so dear ones).
