You at 6 months


Just learnt to blow raspberries

Can roll onto, but not off your tummy

Have worked out your cot is quite fun to play in

Love to see who is talking

Don’t like Mummy eating or drinking while you are feeding

Are 8.6kg and bigger than Emily at 1 year!

Love getting your hair brushed

Are a little cautious when visitors first arrive

Try to crawl by swinging arms and legs (it looks like swimming)

Are happy and love to laugh at Emily’s escapades

Cold porridge, cold tea, warm heart

Some amazing things that happen when you become a mum.
Somehow all the important things have to wait, and you can learn to survive, and even thrive, without them.
You may never actually finish a cup of tea in one sitting and it's a very rare to actually eat meal while it's hot.

I saw this dedication in my own Mum, but now I have my own children, I too love watching and playing, learning and creating with them.

...And I'm thankful for the microwave

Emily and Edward it is a blessing to spend each day with you.

You at 3


You wanted to help sweep up the circles (aka skirting board)

You love your baby brother, especially when he laughs! You call him My baby Edward

Asked for my ‘activity box’ (nativity scene) and remember about the advent calender a few weeks ago. You asked me for the doors that open up with Jesus and Mary and Joseph and presents for the baby in them.

You have taken well to your new glasses, though we are just not so sure how much you can’t see without them, for eg hats on the floor in the games room!

Eye patching is a challenge, but you eye are growing stronger every day!

You were so thrilled to head to the beach at 7am this morning with Daddy, you got dressed in record time. You have been so happy telling me that you got to build 2 sandcastles and go into the beach water two times!

I love you sweet girl
