Back again

How! I cannot believe fast time flies. It feels like yesterday when I sat down to write the up date on what Grace has been up to.

It is hard for me to think that in 13 days time my little baby is going to be turning 2. I still think of her as my little angel. Even when I go shopping for her I have to stop myself from going to the baby section and remind myself that she is now a toddler who wears clothes sized 2 -3 years! When did that happen?!

Since the last time we were here Hurricane Grace, HG for short, has started talking. A real little chatterbox. She has made some wonderful new friends and grown in confidence that has exceeded what I could have ever wished for.  Three weeks ago HG joined a little playgroup which has six other children ranging from 2 to 5 years old. Although she moans everytime I drop her off it doesn't last long and she has a wonderful time. HG has a very strong will and knows exactly what she does and doesn't like. Not that I am complaining, much. She is friendly and outgoing and always full of smiles. When she is not chatting and singing then I know I need to start worrying that something is wrong.

Hopefully now that my work load will become a little lighter I will be able to come back more often and let HG have her say!

Too Long

It has been such a long time since my mom is has had a chance to sit and update my blog. There have been quiet a few things that have happened. I now have five teeth! Hopefully in the next few days I will have six! I have also had Chicken Pox :-( It made me feel really grotty to start with. I started I had a cold and then I started getting the spots. Spotty is my new name. Because of the Spots I couldn't go to my graduation from Moms and Babes. Mommy was very disappointed about that. But on the upside we have enrolled for Clamber Club next year! Yippee. Then I can really start climbing on things.

I have discovered that the best place to read my books is sitting on the coffee table. Very comfy indeed. Mommy says that I am becoming a real chatterbox. I suppose I am - hee hee. I am starting to say more things and it is great that people are starting to understand what I am saying. I have also discovered a few more things that I really like. Blueberries and watermelon are now one of my favourites. Grapes and Strawberries are also very nice. The summer fruits are much nicer than the boring things you get in winter. I have put up some new photos.

Asleep in Daddy's arms. Is there a better place to be?

Helping Mom with getting the paper out for paper collection day.

Eating my rice cake after spending the afternoon running around after the chickens and ducks at the farm.

My new favorite place to play - the cupboard in the TV Unit!

Tomorrow we are going to put up the Christmas tree! Going to help Mommy - yay

Finally! Mommy has figured out how to reduce the video she took of me when I first started walking. Enjoy.

Face painting and Party packs

Wow! What a busy day. I had two birthday parties that I was invited to today. The first one was for Tamaryn and Dylan and the second was for Emma. Louise baked the cupcakes for Tamaryn. Pretty purple and blue ones with stars and silver balls on them. There were lots of girls who were happy to play with me - yay! I even got my first Hello Kitty party pack. My own party pack! I must admit that eating is becoming a lot more fun now that I have half a tooth. It is amazing what I am able to munch on now. We had a very yummy lunch of home made hamburger and chips. After lunch it was into the car and down the highway to my next appointment. I did manage to have a half hour cat nap on the way there.

There were a lot more little girls at this party. They got to swim in the pool :-( Although we I saw the frozen bodies climbing out of the cold water I was rather happy that I wasn't allowed to swim. Brrrr These little girls were much busier than I could ever hope to be, so I was just happy to sit and watch while they ran and played. Heather gave me my second party pack for the day. Two party packs in one day! This one was a box that had lots of little goodies in that I could unpack. I love boxes that I can unpack and pack again and again. Then the special lady arrived. She was very nice and I got my face painted! With glitter too.

It was a really busy day but a really fun day too. I am off to bed. Got another big day tomorrow. We are taking part in the Avon iThembi Walk for Breast Cancer. Yawn.  Need to get a good night sleep.

Its been a while..

It certainly has been a while! Not much has changed lately just improved. I am really getting the hang of walking! I can even walk up and down slopes without falling now. Speaking of falling I did have two minor accidents on Saturday. The first happened when we went to the Irene Farm for breakfast and I tripped on the uneven bricks. I did have a rather nasty bump on my head. Then when we got home and I was happily playing with my toys when I tripped over my squeaky hammer and bumped my cheek on the coffee table. Now I have a perfectly round blue bruise in the middle of my cheek!

On Sunday I discovered the most fun thing to play with - the Hosepipe! All that water and I can make patterns with it when I shake the hosepipe. That was the best fun I have had in a while.

Watering the garden is such hard work!

Ooohhh this is fun! 

Nice and sopping wet!

After I had finished playing and Mommy took me inside to get out of my wet clothes we played on the bed. Just love mommys sunglasses!

So much better just in a nappy! 

Right - next thing on my list of things to do is to get Mommmy to post the video of me walking. Better late than never!
Have a great day everyone!

Walking, Riding and Teeth

I can walk!

Well I have been able to walk for a while now but this weekend I started really walking on my own with a lot more confidence. I have such fun sneaking up on mommy! Officially I have my first tooth! It has only taken 13 months but my first tooth is finally here. It was a rather difficult experience which made me cry a lot and be rather miserable. Hopefully the worst is over.

This morning I pushed myself along on my Winnie the Pooh ride-on! I think mommy is happy about that, no more breaking her back pushing me up and down the road. I am sure she will still do it for me though ;-)

Off to have my morning nap. Have a great week all!

What a Happy Saturday

Today was one of the best days ever! Mommy worked in the garden and she let me help. I am very proud of myself for helping her dig the holes for the Ground Orchids. I never thought that I would something that was just as much fun as playing with water. Digging in the sand.

After I had finished planting the Orchids I needed to take a bath.

Who says that I can't fit into Hagrids water bowl?

I most certainly can't wait to see what tomorrow brings.
Sweet dreams everyone.
