Not without my baby

This week I have been feeling a bit down. Looks like I got a virus so I had fever and some sores in mi mouth... ouch !

Result: I did not go to the kindergarten and slept all the time cuddling with mom and dad. But... if someone has helped me feel better these days has been my friend "the baby".

He is really nice and we play a lot together... here you have a picture of us having a nap on the sofa. I think when my new brother is here the three of us are going to be very good friends !

34 weeks... and growing !

Have I already told you how much I look forward to having my new brother with me? Can't wait to show him my car collection !

However, it looks like I still have some more time to go... mom is now 34 weeks pregnant and she is groooooooowing :-)

In the evening, when I go to the couch for my bottle of milk and she stays with me, I love getting close to her belly so that I can touch it, kiss my new "didi" and tell him how much I like him already.

It is very funny because sometimes he moves a lot... maybe he likes football more than cars? mmm, maybe that's something I need to start exploring !

In the meanwhile, I am just going to be a good boy and take care of mom. I think she is a bit tired because she can't sleep very well. She says her tummy is too big but I don't think so... I actually think that Opa's is even bigger !

In any case, I like her belly and I think she looks very cute...

3 Gallos in Pirk

I already told you guys that I missed Shanghai a lot but, lately I am also realizing that living in Prague has many advantages. One of them is that now that we are in Europe I get to see the Opas and the Abuelos much more often !

For example, last Saturday we just took the car for an hour and a half and (bbbbrrruuuummmm bbbrrruuummmm) we went to spend the day in Pirk with the Opas and uncle Herbert. We had so much fun !

So, what is Pirk? a very special place! This is the village where my great-grandparents lived maaaaany years ago. Actually, Oma and Opa also lived there when they got married so it was also papa's house for a while. He has told me so many stories about how he used to play with his brothers in the garden with their wood swords !

As you can see this place has a lot of history and I am now very happy to be part of it ! You see? here you have a picture of 3 Gallo generations in front of the house.

But that was not all.... we also went for a walk... visited a neighbor and.... guess what that neighbor has in the barn..... COWS !!!! I am generally a brave guy but I have to confess that this time I was afraid (well, only a tiny bit :-) You can only imagine when dad opened the door and I saw all those guys staring at me saying MMMMUUUUUUU at the same time.

Freaked out a bit but I think next time I will go back and talk to them a bit. In the end of the day, they produce my very much loved milk so I am sure they must be good !

Ah ! mom has also told me that in the forest next to the house you can find the best Eierschwammerl in the world ! Actually I think Opa and dad have this kind of battle between them to see who picks up more of them but... what they don't know.... is that now thay have tough competition and I am going to beat them up ! Can't wait till summer arrives :-)
