Starting my Toddlerhood

Toddlerhood is the age between 1 and 3.  So I am officially no longer a baby.  I am a toddler, far from those days that I could pull it off without saying a word: Papá and Anne were at my feet no matter what!

Anyways, to celebrate this right of passage, grown ups like to do what they call a "birthday party".  And this is the summary of mine.

We called a bunch of people to join.  The ones that came, mostly Ekes.  And one too crazy to forget.  Can you tell who?


After everyone sits down nicely at the table, they stand up and there is no tidiness left.  Chaos takes over.  Pretty soon, a select group surrounded me, shielding me from incoming kisses and cheek pinching.


But it was all a trap.  The kisses came from the select group directly!  TREASON!!!


And then the weirdest thing of all night...  People get together and start singing along.  And putting up fires.  And screaming and chanting.  Is this a sect and I never figured it out? These people have my attention.  I will be more careful from now on.

But, I must admit, this is all worth it.  HOW COME?  You might ask...  well, THE PRESENTS!!!  THEY GIVE YOU PRESENTS!!!! TOYS!!!  do you hear?  TOOOOYYYYSSSS!!!!


So that's all folks.  No more SuperKay baby.  A full toddler now.


A Proper Holiday

I just come back from Dikili.  I will post some of the many things I did soon.  Now I just want to summarize my trip as best as I can.  During the day, relax at the beach...

Well, it has been one year.  And this is a brief, straightly physical, very incomplete summary.  It is incomplete mainly because there are some pictures that were taken and are missing, but since we are in a process of moving, I cannot find them.  If I find them, I promise to update this as soon as I can.  But I NEEDED this post to be done for my birthday!

We just came from the hospital.  I was not even aware I was at home, when I met that beautiful beast, Popo, and I immediately wanted a portrait with him.  I was 4 days old.

4 days old - First day at home

When I was 2 weeks old, I got my next pic.  And I decided to make it a regular event.  So you can tell me whether I have grown.

Two Week Old Kayra
3 weeks old

Three Week Old Kayra

4 weeks old

4 weeks old

5 weeks old

5 week + 1 day old Kayra

6 weeks old

6 week old Kayra

Here´s the gap.  You see, we went to the US for three months, so I could not take pictures for a while.  Still, I am sure we must have taken some before the trip and after my sixth week.  I just cannot find them.  This is right after coming back from the US, on January 9, 2013.  I was about to become 6 months old.

8 months old.  So yes, I believe there is a second gap here.

8 months old.

9 months old.  This is the very last we took.  Popo left for Chile right after this, so we could not continue.  But we will.

My afternoons in Dikili are quite easy going.  I usually bathe in the Pelopincho in the backyard.  It is very refreshing, much necessary in these times of heat!

Before going out, I like to stand up and wiggle my ass to get rid of the excess water.

Then I go out.  All fresh!!

The KayMobile

Because Batman has the Batmobile and Wonder Woman has the invisible plane, SuperKay has  the Kaymobile!  It is a very cool and efficient way to travel in the sea.  Take a look.  This is what people see.

This is what people don't see: a super powerful, bimotor engine with high powered turbo boost!

And just like Batman has Robin, I have Utku Abi!

We are already in action.  Here we saved Papá from a whale!

After we saved him, we noticed that Anne had also been swallowed by the whale, so we went inside and got her out.

And finally, we dug in deeper and found two AnneAnnes!  Guzin and Gulin!

Doyuk Abi

The one and only!  He came to visit...  He is so hot...  OMG!!!!  He will be a famous actor when he grows up, I am sure.  I hope he remembers me when he is famous.  Anyways...  he came and stayed overnight.  We went to lunch, dinner, and breakfast, all in very nice places where I even tried a new fruit which I highly recommend: watermelon!

Here´s a shot where you can see how hot he is.  Next to his Anne, Ozge.

We played a lot, with him, Ozge, and Onur.  The problem is that the dude can stand up and walk, so I can hardly catch up, he is too fast!

To tilt the odds toward my advantage, I went and made a SERIOUS request to Papá and Dayi.  I said "EITHER YOU HELP ME WALK OR ELSE..."

Papá and Dayi are not dumb...

So I caught up.  And when I caught up, there is always his mother getting her nose where it does not belong!

Then we all went out for a nice breakfast near the sea...  This is where I tried (and loved) watermelon.

I admit, this exhausted me.  Fortunately, I found a good chest where to rest.

There's a new TV (?) at Dede and Anneanne's

Dinner at Papá's favorite Turkish restaurant

Yes!  We finally went to Recep!  It is AAAAA....  wait for it....  MAZING!  I could not stop eating!  The Ayran was spectacular, the lamb delicious, the bread...  Oh my god, the BREAD!!!

Here Dayi is feeding me some lamb.   It was so good, I did not even notice the phone within my reach!

Here you can see the rest of the table watching in idolation.  Seems they like me eating lamb...  and I like eating lamb.  This is what people must call a winwin.

Dayi then thought that I had enough and was keeping me AWAY FROM THAT BEAUTY CALLED LAMB!!!!  This is when the winwin was over.  I WANTED MORE!!!

Defne Abla Came to Visit!!!

She´s soooo coooooolllll....  So grown up, so pretty, and so aloof....  I want to play all the time with her, but I need to be a bit older, because I get the idea she´s too cool for me right now.  Anyways, it was a lot of fun.  Together with Defne Abla, her Anne came, Gamze Teyze, and also Selin Teyze.  We were all playing.

She came, and right away coolness struck...  She had this awesome, super cute back pack!!!  OMG!!!

As soon as she came in, she thought the place was dirty.  So she had to clean.  I was a bit embarrassed that our house did not meet her standards.

I wanted to hug her constantly.  

Everybody is stealing kisses and hugs, just look for yourself at Selin teyze.

But she would put these faces implying...  WHAT ARE THESE PEOPLE TRYING TO DO??

Eventually she loosened up, and we started playing all together, with our Annes.

Then the Annes left, and we had more girl to girl chatting...

And girl to girl playing ...

And girl to girl yelling ...

And girl to girl fighting ...

It got bad, Selin teyze had to separate us.  I was ready to destroy.

Then Anne came to calm me down.

And I really calmed down.

Then I started waking up and looking cute.

Even abla thought I was cute, so she took a picture.

And then all the girls took a picture together.
