If you’ve ever chased an achievement (pick up 10 medals, reach point X, die in a particularly embarrassing way) on a game, you need to play Achievement Unlocked, in which the entire point of the game is to unlock all the achievements. Enjoy heartily.

Hazel watchers out there, know ye that she can, at 16.5 months:
– say ~170 words and understand more
– recognise a rainbow on my screen and go to find her book on rainbows
– eat with a spoon without always spilling everything
– build many blocks into a stack (7 is her record so far)
– make the sounds of a sheep, cow, dog, cat, parrot or duck
– say “eight” when parked on my shoulder and I say “pieces of”
– stand on parental feet for a dance
– turn in a circle and fall over dizzy when being read the book about the “rosie ring”
– demand paper and pen (“draw!”) when she wants a good scribble
– throw a ball (or anything hand-sized) with some force
– play the piano on my iPhone and her little crocodile xylophone (“ding-ding”)
– give kisses to mummy and daddy at bedtime and whenever else she feels like it
– remember that nana will be coming in a couple of days time
– wave like a crazy thing when she figures out that someone is leaving
– smile like an angel
