2 Pumpkins & A Spider!

Today we went to Music Train in Halloween fancy dress and decided to carry on the theme by baking some Halloween cookies at home. I was originally a pumpkin but Ollie didn't like being a spider so guess what?.......

... yes I ended up being the spider!!

... oh and then 2 old witches turned up!!!

Happy Birthday Libby

Today we went to my second cousin's 1st birthday party. There was a bouncy castle and I loved it. I went straight into the hall and went on the bouncy castle. Mummy had to chase after me and take my boots off!

I had my first crisp while I was there. I thought it was great. I asked Mummy and she gave me one, then another and another. Everytime she gave me one I ran off incase she took it back again.

Libby had a big birthday cake with candles on it and just after she had blown them out I said in a loud voice "I want to go home now". Oh well time to leave!

I think I'm going up the wrong way!

Meet Keiran

Today we went to see Laine and her little boy. His name is Keiran and he is 19 months old and he has come to live with Laine FOREVER. We were so excited to see him and the added bonus was that he had a lovely table and chairs for us to sit at and have lunch and watch TV - brilliant!!

23 Month Old Today

Another month older and just one to go to my BIRTHDAY. We have had so many birthdays lately too.

We my new talent this month is singing. I can sing Happy Birthday to you, I can sing some of The Wheels On The Bus, Sleeping Bunnies, Row, Row Row Your Boat.

I also play this game with Haz: He says "touch the ceiling" and I stretch up, then "touch the floor" and I bend down but it gets difficult when he says "touch the ceiling with your feet" well, the positions I get in has him in hysterics.

I also ask what the time is and look at my wrist (even though I don't have a watch on!)

Even though I am not 2 yet I have started the terrible 2's behaviour. I have a pretend cry which I use to try and get my own way and I sometimes shout "NO" and hit Mummy. Poor Mummy she always gets it.

My eating habits are getting better now. Even though I still won't eat potatoes, cooked vegetables and meat, I eat loads of fruit and tomatos, cucumber and carrot and bread and cheese, pasta, and beans.

My bedtime has been put back another half an hour now. I have my bath at 7pm and in bed asleep at 7.30. Since the thumb incident I am still settling in to going off to sleep without too much fuss but I am getting better by the day and have the added bonus of no thumb sucking. My dentist will be pleased in years to come!

Today is Harry's 16th Birthday. Hoorah - he can now get a job!! We decided to celebrate at Frankie & Benny's ...

Like father, like son

The grand finale. I won't repeat what he said!!

Mummy's Report from her 10K Run

As some of you know I will be running the Flora London Marathon next year with Coral & Laura for MACS and as part of our training plan we decided to do a 10K race. We decided to do the Cancer Research 10k at Hatfield House. We were really lucky with the lovely sunny weather and we were all charged up and ready to go. I was really excited as I had never run this distence before although I was quietly confident that we would do it easy! Our main aim with all our runs is that we never stop and walk. I doesn't matter how hard it gets we slow down but continue to run. And today was no exception. We did it in 79 minutes which gave us an average speed of 11.5 miles per hour which is slightly slower than normal but we're working on it!

Before .....

.... half way ....
..... we did it!!

Last Days Of Sunshine

Today was a beautiful sunny day so we took advantage of the weather to spend some time in the garden before the cold weather and dark nights set in .......
First we put the toys away

Then we tidied the shed

Then put the garden furniture away. I was pretending it was a boat!

Sick Pirate

Today I was supposed to go to Kirsty's 3rd birthday party but I had croup last night and the doctor thought it was best that I stay at home. I was a bit upset because I had learned to sing "Happy To You Kirsty" (I missed the birthday bit out for some reason). Never mind, I dressed up anyway in my pirate outfit and played with the party bag and balloon Kirsty brought round for me.

Thumb Update

The worse part about hurting my thumb was that it was my right one which is the one I suck. We had such a hard week getting used to that. I kept asking Mummy to take the plaster off at first and then I just got used to it.

I haven't had a daytime nap for 9 days now and I have cried a lot because I couldn't get myself off to sleep. I have woken up during the night, sometimes for up to 3 hours. It was been a tough week and we are all tired and stressed.

BUT today the plaster came off and it has healed up. Hooray - I can go back to Sticky Mitts and swimming.

Ladybird & Castaway Kids In One Day!

Today we decided to try Ladybirds playgroup. We haven't been for quite a while and I loved it. There was a brilliant kitchen there and lots of things to ride on.

After that we went and met Louis, Coby & Jasmine at Castaway Kids. We had never been before and thought it was great.

Do you think Louis noticed me going in for a quick kiss with Coby while his back was turned?!
