Thought I would make an early start today got a lot to do if I’m going to perfect my walking. Bit of a disappointment though daddy came and got me and just took me to their bed. How am I meant to perfect my walking there? I rolled around and made a fuss and eventually everyone had to wake up. Now daddy is back home with us, having breakfast. We want his breakfast instead of our mush! Mummy won’t allow it though, she just keeps shovelling that stuff in our mouths while he sits there with his fancy cereal, so unfair. Thank goodness mummy has finally taking notice of our cries and today gave us a bath. This was much nicer and more civilised. Who on earth wants to stand on a freezing cold bath and be hosed down first thing in the morning? Not me that’s for sure! I had a lot of fun splashing around with my sister and it was lovely and warm. I do hate getting dressed after though. I would much rather sit and look out the window and see the ducks and the dogs.
Today we went and met our friends Jack and Ethan. We always have fun with them. This was the first time I’ve seen them since I can walk and it was great fun. I went up and down the ramp into the playroom.
Last night I didn’t want to go to sleep, I thought I would see what all the fuss is about given my sister is ALWAYS up. It wasn’t that exciting to be honest. Mummy disappeared she had funny things on her ears and looked different. Daddy put me in the high chair while he made some dinner and I didn’t even get to eat any of it. Then he put the TV on and there was some boring thing with lots of men running around and shouting. To be honest I would rather have been in bed thankfully eventually he took me and I got my head rubbed too bonus! We saw Grandma and Grandad on the computer today which was nice. Although grandma kept getting up and down which was weird. Me and my sister climbed up on the chair and looked out the window. It was fun until my sister fell down and got stuck! Whoops…

This morning I was so tired and mummy didn’t even notice! So I went and sat by the cupboard where my dummy’s are kept, and I had a little cry. It worked, I got one! Then I went to the bedroom and tried to get into my bed but its a bit big for me to climb up onto. Eventually she got the message and we had a lovely sleep. It wasn’t enough for me though, I was pretty exhausted all day. Playgroup wasn’t that fun today. I really just wanted to sleep! Does anyone have any idea how tiring being a toddler is? Not to mention how much my mouth hurts, it’s horrible. I don’t want to eat and my bottom is sore 🙁 Tonight I was very upset. Mummy fed me my dinner while I was on her lap. Grandma was on the computer talking to us, but I just wasn’t in the mood.
I had fun at playgroup today, I was showing off my walking skills and shouting my new word ‘’da’’ at everyone. Everyone seemed very happy with me! When we got home mummy didn’t get Polly out of the seat. She was asleep but I don’t know why! So I got on the sofa and shouted at her, but she didn’t move, so I climbed on her, but still nothing. Then Grandma came on the computer and told me to get down. Boring!

I am very poorly, my sister is too. It’s really horrible. Mummy keeps disappearing into the bedroom and daddy was here all day not just at dinner time. He played lots of games with us but we weren’t really interested. We were allowed dummy’s and blankies all day though! Much more fun than when mummy is in charge! My nose runs all the time and mummy or daddy keep blowing it. It’s horrible. We got chocolate this afternoon, the little round ones that Grandma Garber gave us, that was nice. Last night I stayed in bed with mummy. I got to rip up magazines and toilet rolls and jump over mummy, even though I didn’t feel well it was a lot of fun! My sister was with daddy. She was very miserable today. Even when I gave her blankie. I like to take things to my sister, even when I’m not well I can do it. Mummy gives me something and I ask for one for Stella too and I take it too her. I’m a big help to mummy, she is always saying thank you and giving me kisses so I know I’m doing well. I like to help with the sweeping and putting the chairs back. Sometimes we move the bin too, it looks better in the living room. Sometimes I try and pick up the big box of books daddy bought us, but its too heavy for me, it makes me cry as I try and carry it to the rug. Mummy comes and takes it from me.
