Today you went to an outdoor theatre with Nana and Aunty Cath to watch a production of Joseph. Nana has got you the tickets for your Birthday and you’ve been singing the songs and looking forward to going ever since!

Your day started with a pizza lunch!

While you were there Jessica and I did some baking – she’s very proud of her cakes!

Yesterday you went with Nana to help Aunty Cath start to take some wallpaper off the walls at her new house.

It was very exciting and you were a big help!

Bradgate in Summer

Today you, me, Mummy, Nana and Auntie Cath went to Bradgate Park to feed the ducks and see if we could spot some deer. The deer were very close to the path so you were able to see them easily from your trike.

After looking at the deer we went and fed the ducks, although as per usual you wanted the bread for yourself. Silly Nana managed to cut her thumb open whilst slicing up the bread for the ducks, hopefully it will be better soon!

The most exciting part of the day for you was Nana’s bubbles – although she wasn’t very good at blowing them!

First birthday party

Today was all about…you! Yesterday had obviously worn you out as you had a one hour lie in. The first present you had was a tricycle from both of us, you seemed to like it.

Mummy and I worked very hard on your cake, I was the baker and mummy was the chief decorator, we decided early on that we wanted to recreate your wooden walker and we were quite happy with the results.

Lots of people came to your party, including some of your friends from the NCT group. Everyone was excited to see you toddling around the room and eating ham and mustard sandwiches.

As we had so many family members there we were able to take pictures of four generations of Mummy and Daddy’s families.

As well as your tricycle Mummy and Daddy bought you a duck charm for your Pandora bracelet, Grandma & Grandad bought you a farm and a push along duck, Nana & Grandad got you a dolls house and some books, Aunty Cath got you a noisy crocodile, Uncle Emlyn got you a penguin needing a cuddle and Uncle Tim got you Clothes and more books. You even got a posh Harrods teddy, he is very cuddly!

With a baaa baaa here……

Today Aunty Cath and Nana took you to the farm -you thought  the rabbit was funny even when he nibbled your finger! We went on tractor and saw lots of pigs, goats, cows, ducks and lambs.  We stayed to see the lambs being fed, but you decided you were ready for your lunch too and wanted the lambs bottles!

After the farm Nana took you out for lunch – I just love this photo so had to include it:

A holiday visit

Its now October half term which means that I have had some time off work to spend with you.and mummy. We have used our time productively and been to visit Nana and Grandad who are on holiday with the caravan down in Cirencester. Auntie Cath and Emlyn were also there and enjoyed seeing you, it was your longest trip in a car yet and you were very well behaved.
