Miss pickle is still blowing rasberries at every opportunity, it's cute but less so when she has a mouthful of food! Lets just hope she grows out of it, P still does it and he's 32!

We had a swimming lesson, the princess now goes under the water (when dipped by the teacher) and 'jumps' off the side of the pool with her eyes closed! I tried to maximise the rasberry blowing by getting her to blow bubbles under water but she hasn't quite got the idea yet, although she watched me do it very closely.

I'm not going to mention sleeping because it's the same old same old, except to say we have a new plan and if it works I will be one happy Mummy.

We still have 3 and a half teeth, she fell off P and hit her face on the wood floor and her 4th tooth seems to have shrunk? I don't think she chipped it, but if she did I know who was looking after her when it happened!
(What can I really say at least he wasn't sleeping as she rolled off the bed!)

We found a lovely new playgroup, and I made a new friend, but I managed to wash her phone number, whoops! Hope she comes again next week?
P's Mum was here for the month of Feb. It was very useful, being able to go have a shower without waiting for nap-time! Thank's Grandma!
It made me realise how much I miss my Mum though, boo. I hope we manage to get back to the UK sometime in the new year.
Visited with a friend today and her Mum was there. We like to compare babies as they are only a week apart in age. It's all in fun, but the race is on to see who is first to learn to clap their hands!
Watch this space!
Pickle says mumumumumum when she is sad, dadadadadad when she is happy. bubububub and blubblubblub.

where have i been!?!

I'm just really bad at remembering to write! But I will try harder!

Today I did day one of a first-aid course, and boy it was boring! I will be starting family-day care (childminding) as soon as all the bits in the house and yard are finished. I would prefer not to work but that's not just me hey?! And at least this way I get to stay with Miss pickle and not miss one minute!
So Daddy was going to look after The pickle all by himself today and I even wrote him out a timetable so he would know what to do. But my friend ended up doing the morning and Paul took over at lunch-time. Next week he will have to do it all by himself though!
We got this dragging kind of crawling going on, and it's all very exciting, have to get some stairgates on pretty soon, and lower the cot base before we have another accident... that would be falling out of the big bed because Mummy fell back to sleep and baby didn't ! Big bump and I felt so sick! I couldn't even eat my brekkie!
Three teeth too! First one came at 6 months, 2nd at 7 months 3rd popped out this week and looks like a 4th and 5th in the next few days! Poor cherub is suffering a bit with it, snotty nose and the sneezes, but she's generally such a happy little soul!
Sleep not much better, usually a good night (2 wakes) alternated with a bad night (4-5 wakes)
So getting some repreive but not enough to make me a fully functioning human being! I try to look at it as a privelige (sp? it's late!) but sometimes thats hard at 2 in the morning, but still... I am honoured to be her Mother.

So here's to the new years (who am I kidding?) resolution to write on my blog! cheers!
