Bonjour,
It has been a couple of days since I last wrote because our computer hasn't been working properly but now it is all better. I am also feeling a litle bit better but I still have a bit of a runny nose and now I have a cough. It is a different cough from the one I use to get attention though. Now let me think, what have I been doing.......On Wednesday, Mummy took me to the Child Health Clinic for my 7 month check up as it was my 7 months old birthday yesterday!!!! Mummmy had to take my clothes of and I didn't want to so I cried and then they put me on the scales and I now weigh 7.2 kg which is 15 lbs 14 oz...(Mummy had to tell me that as I couldn't work it out!!!) I am also 65.7 cm tall!!! The nurse said I was a very smart little girl because I can do lots of things, I wanted to say, "of course I am smart....I have my own on line diary"!!!!!! I also had a hearing test which I also passed. The clinic nurse is from Canada and she is really nice and Mummmy said half my family is from Canada....even Daddy and my Memere and Pepere and Cousin Justin whom I cant wait to meet!! When we came home I slept a lot.
On Thursday Mummy and Daddy took me to the Doctors as my cough was getting bad and my ear was hurting a bit which is why I always pulled on it. I didn't want to laugh or play either I just wanted Mummy to carry me everywhere all day long. The Doctor was nice and said I have to have baby panadol to make me feel better. I started to feel better in the middle of the night and then I didn't want to sleep at all so I kept crying for Mummy and Daddy to come and play with me. Daddy had to go to the airport when it was still dark because Mummy said he has to go away to work again. That makes me so sad!! He will be back in 5 more "big"sleeps!
I'm going to have lunch now and I think it's my favourit, zucchini,carrots and potato!!! Yum Yum
Bye
Love Sophie

Bonjour,
I had a runny nose today and I've not really felt my best today. I dont feel like smiling at all. Last night I woke up a lot as my nose was blocked and it was hard to sleep and this morning it was running liek a tap. I hate it when Mummy wipes my nose. I just see her going for the pink kleenex box and I start crying as I know what is coming. She even tried to wipe it with a warm flannel and I hate that as well. Then my nose got all red so Mummy keeps putting cream on it. I get cream on my bottom as well when that is red. Today we went to my friend Hayley's house and my other friends were there as well. I played with Charlie, he is a lot bigger than me but I am faster than him at getting toys. Sometimes I get toys for him but he doesnt really want them so I kind of throw them on him and then he cries. Mummy said I need to be more gentle!!!!! I dont know what gentle is though. We came home early as I was very tired. When I woke up from my nap, Daddy was home as well and then we played together as Mummy went somewhere......probably to get stuff I always need. She came home with lots of bags and I liked sitting on the floor in the kitchen while she unpacked them all until they were all gone. After my bath tonight I played in the loungeroom with Daddy and Sasha. Daddy does silly things and I giggled but then I felt so sleepy I had to get ready for bed.
Bye for now,
Love Sophie

Bonjour,
Yesterday Mummy, Daddy and I went to Natasha and Paul's house for lunch. They didn't have any little babies for me to play with, they only have Tex and she is like Sasha. I liked watching Tex and Sasha playing, they both wanted to chew on the same yellow ball. I really wanted that yellow ball as well and thought it would be good to chew on seeing as they both liked it so much. Everytime I got almost close to it though Mummy and Daddy would throw it away from me and would give me this red plastic thing which wasn't as much fun. Then they gave me a yummy rusk and I loved chewing, chewing, chewing away on that, but then I dropped it and Tex ran off with it. I wasn't very happy about that. I had a nice sleep in my portacot but I really liked looking around the room as it was a room I had never slept in before. When I woke up I played with a little toy that made noises and giggled a lot because Daddy was being funny and he tickled me a lot. Then we came home and I had a bath and tried to drink the water but Mummy doesn't want me to do that and then I tried to stand up and Mummy doesn't want me to do that either........(all the really fun stuff I cant do!!!!) When I got out of the bath I like to crawl on the carpet with no clothes on. Daddy calls it "naked time"!!!! Its so much fun and I am able to crawl very fast away from Mummy who tries to follow me with my nappy. When Mummy catches me she puts clothes on me and then I know I am going to have milk (yum) and then I am going to have to go to sleep.
Bye Bye
Love Sophie

Bonjour,

Yesterday was a very busy day. First of all I slept through the whole night again and Mummy said I am such a good girl!!! After breakfast I played with my toys, but mostly I like to play with things that are'nt toys, like spoons. I can play with a spoon for a very long time and not even get sick of it. When I was having my morning nap, Daddy came home and was a bit noisy and then the next door neighbour came over and they talked loud and woke me up......I wanted to get up and play then as I thought I was missing out on something fun!!!! Mummy tried to get me to sleep again but "No way" I said, I'm not tired anymore. Then Mummy, Daddy and I went to a big Shopping Centre. We went in the car and I laughed a lot because Daddy kept turning around and pulling funny faces and I think it is so funny. Mummy told him to keep is eye on the road but I prefer when he looks at me. I sat in my pram and watched lots of people walking around everywhere and then we went into a big store and bought me a "jolly jumper". Then I remembered that I was actually tired from being woken up before during my nap, so I started crying so Mummy or Daddy could pick me up.
When we got home I had lunch and I had my first taste of beef. In fact I ate "meat and 3 veg" all mixed up together. It was yummy and then I had a nice long sleep.
When I woke up I played in the "jolly jumper". It is so much fun and I like to swing in it back and forth and then I jump up and down. When Sasha walks past, I look bigger than her for a change as I am standing up...(almost).
Then Cam, Caz and Angus came over and I played with Angus. Mummy cooked dinner for everybody so Daddy bathed me and then I went to sleep very fast after I had yummy milk and slept 12 and a half hours without waking up once!!!!!!
That is all for now, I am so tired from reliving yesterdays activities again.......I need another nap.
Bye
Love Sophie

Bonjour,

Hi everyone, guess what? My Daddy is home!!! I was very happy to see him, and I was a real good girl the whole time I was with him, I giggled all morning for him and did not cry even once! He had to go to a meeting this morning for his work, I dont understand what work is but it must be fun c'ause he spends lots of time there, and somehow it keeps me in nappies...
I went for a stroll with mum today in the Adventure Buggy and I did not even cry, this is a big deal as I usually love to cry lots in that pram. I like to watch Sasha run ahead of us, she like to wee everywhere. Mummy says she is incontinent, what is incontinent??? We visited Nan and Granpa and when we came back I had a little nap c'ause I was kind of tired.
When Daddy came back Aunty Emilly dropped in, I was a happy girl then as well c'ause Daddy was playing airplane with me, I think I like airplane it is my favorite game. Mummy told him to not rev me up c'ause it was getting close to bed time. We had a shower and I giggled alot, I like showers with Dad c'ause he likes to be silly, Mummy says he is good at being silly. Well I just had my last bottle and I am going to go to sleep now until late tomorrow morning. Just kidding I will probably wake up really early before the sun comes up c'ause it is fun to see Mummy and Daddys expression, they are funny looking early in the morning especially Daddy.
Good night everyone I look forward to writing all my days events tomorrow, I think Daddy is taking me out in the afternoon probably somewhere where he can show me off ( most likely in a cd shop), he says women really find him attractive when I am around and Mummy likes the break, as I take alot of her time.
Oh well good night to all
Love, Sophie

Bonjour,
Guess what everybody. Last night I slept through the whole night. I went to sleep at 6.45pm and didn't wake up until 6.20am. I don't know why it is such a big deal, but according to my Mummy's reaction it is a very BIG deal. So much so she asked if I could do it every night. She doesn't expect much does she!!!!!! I told her that I'm not making any promises!
Nan and Grandpa came to look after me as Mummy had to go out in the morning, I cried when she walked out, but then I forgot all about her and they took me for a walk to the park. After my nap, Mummy took me to Ben's house for his birthday and I played with Jayde and Ella and Will. I crawled around and played with toys and then I was so tired I fell asleep all the way home in the car. Tonight when I am sleeping Daddy is coming home and when I wake up in the morning I get to see him. I am so excited!!!!! Tomorrow I am going to play with him all day!!!
Love Sophie

Hello,
I got an early start on the day and woke up at 6.30am, had a little play in my cot and talked to all my lovely toy friends on the shelves above my cot until I got so hungry I couldn't talk to them anymore. Then I cried and guess what happened.....Mummy came in to get me!!! I was very happy to see her. After breakfast and my nap, Mummy took me to a place with lots of other little people like me while she went to exercise. I think she said it was called a creche!!!! I made lots of new friends and the grown ups looking after me thought I was a very small baby and they put me in the "babies that lie on their backs and don't move section"....well, boy were they sorry !!!! I tried to crawl right over the 2 little babies lying happily looking at the walls.....(how boring!!!) and then I turned around and almost sat on one of them. The grown up lady...(like Mummy, but not as nice!!!) was laughing when she told Mummy and said she didn't realise a little baby like me could move so fast. It was fun and I will get to go back there whenever Mummy has exercise classes.
Tonight for dinner I had yummy plain yoghurt and apple and then I had fun splish splashing in the bath. Wow, what a busy day, I better get some sleep now.
Goodnight
Love Sophie

Bonjour,
I had fun today with my friends Ella, Hayley, Rhys and Madeline. Charlie didn't come over as he wasn't feeling very well. I wasn't feeling that well either and last night I had tummy pains as well as a runny nose. I couldn't sleep from 2am - 4am and was crying, crying,crying and Mummy had to stay awake with me as well. I hope I am all better tommorow. I let my friends play with my toys but sometimes when they have one I want I just grab it right back off them and then they cry. Mummy said I was a little bit of a bully but Sasha had told me to mark my territory !!!!! Then I tried to roll on Rhys and he wasn't very happy about that. The other babies don't know how to crawl like me, apart from Ella as she is a clever baby as well.
Mummy said Daddy will be home in 2 more sleeps but does that mean 2 more sleeps including the sleeps I have in the day as well, or 2 big sleeps when it is dark. I am so confused. Anyway, I can hardly wait and we are going to pick him up at the airport. Yay,Yay,Yay.
Bye Bye

Bonjour,
Today the sun came out so Mummy, Sasha and I went to the park. I sat in my pram and watched Sasha the whole time chasing the ball. She sure does run fast!!! It looks like so much fun. Mummy took me out of the pram and let me have a little go on the slide......I'm not really sure if I like it or not. When we came home I had a nice nap and then we went to get groceries from Coles. I sat in the front of the trolley and not the little baby capsule part. I like sitting in the front of the trolley because I feel like a BIG girl!!!!! Lots of old ladies stopped us to tell Mummy how cute I was and then I got bored so I cried to see what Mummy would do with me then. She looked in her bag for a dummy but she had forgotten it at home so I had to play with the car keys instead.....(Mummy said...Phew!!!!)
This afternoon I had a very runny nose and wanted Mummy to hold me all the time. I wasn't feeling very well and I wanted to be carried everywhere. I hope I feel better tommorow because my 6 friends and their Mummy's are coming to our house for lunch and I can't wait to see them all again !!!!......(especially Charlie!!!!!)
Bye for now,
Love Sophie

Bonjour,
I am very sorry to my avid readers as Mummy just reminded me I didn't write in my diary yesterday. I must of been too busy playing!!!! Yesterday was very cool so Mummy and I stayed home and Mummy's friend Rachael and then Natasha came to visit. So I listened to them chatting..... Natasha and Rachael are both getting married in a few months......I'm not sure what that is but it sure does mean you need to talk a lot, I could hardly get a word in!!!!! I was so tired after that so I had a nice big sleep.
When I woke up, I played some more with some blocks and a small ball. I kept trying to fit the whole ball in my mouth but no matter how hard I tried it just woudn't fit......I was very frustrated.
Last night I ate sweet potato and corn for dinner...Yummy!! I went to bed at 6.15pm as I was very tired but then I woke up at 4.00am and wanted to play. I dont think my Mummy was too happy about that!
Bye bye
Love Sophie

Bonjour,
Another windy and rainy day today. I woke up and had my favourite breakfast....rice cereal with pureed pears, yum, yum!!!! Mummy and I went to Cam, Caz and Angus's house to watch football. Mummy said that my team is the West Coast Eagles and they won today and played a very good game. I didn't really care, I just like to watch the colours and I really like to watch the nice big green oval. After that we came home because I was tired. I slept for a whole 2 hours which is a long time for me!!!!
When I woke up, Daddy was on the phone and Mummy let me listen to him talking. I kept looking around the room because I could hear him but I couldn't see him, I could only see Sasha, and I know she's not my Daddy!!!!
Mummy and I then played with my toys and read books........actually I just tried to eat them. I like the pictures in "Cendrillon", my Memere and Pepere sent me that book!!
Time for bed,
Love Sophie

Bonjour!!!
Well, another day in my busy life!!! Today I experienced my first storm. Lots of wind and rainy weather. I liked sitting by the window in the lounge room and watching all the plants blowing in the wind and watching the rain outside. I haven't seen much rain before. Mummy says I was a pretty good baby today...:-) I slept for a little bit longer for my naps. I ate a yummy lunch of broccoli, pumpkin, zucchini and potato all mixed together. I think I ate too much because I didn't feel like eating my dinner tonight.
Today Mummy and I went to get the spare tyre fixed for the car. I smiled at all the men in the tyre shop and they said I was very cute, except for the man that asked if I was a boy.......Mummy said to him...."Do you think I would dress my son in this lovely pink tracksuit??????" Mummy will have to remember to tell Daddy about that one!!!
This afternoon I sat in my highchair and played with a spoon and a piece of string for almost an hour , it was so fascinating!!!!!!
Bye Bye
Love Sophie

Hello,
Today I woke up and was a bit sad because Mummy told me that Daddy had gone to work a long way away and I wasn't going to see him for 5 -7 days. That just seems like forever for me....but Mummy says he has to do this work so we can buy me new shoes when I need them !!!!! I am going to really miss him.
So, I am going to try to be a good girl for Mummy while he is away. I had 3 sleeps today but Mummy says I need to sleep longer than the maximum 45 minutes that I usually do and really need to improve in the "sleeping department"........apart from that, I am just perfect!!!
Today I did lots of climbing in my cot, its lots of fun. I like to throw my dummy on to the floor and then cry out for Mummy to come in and pick it up and give it back to me, this is my favourite game at the moment. I like to throw it at Sasha as well but she just sniffs it and walks away.
Talk to you tommorow,
Love Sophie xxxxxxx
