Bonjour,
My house is very quiet again as Mummy and Daddy's friends have gone back to Canada. Sasha and I are very sad as we really loved all the extra attention, but one good thing is that Mummy can go back to typing my diary for me as shesaid she can now get access to the computer again. I have so much to say I hardly know where to start and it is also very hard for me to remember everything I have been doing as I am only almost 13 months old........
Yesterday I had to have my immunisation needles and I cried really, really loudly...but not for very long. Mummy said I was a very good girl and then that made me clap hands, and the nurse laughed at me. I always clap hands if someone says I am a good girl!!!!! I heard the nurse tell Mummy I have to go back in a month for more needles, I hope that that is a really long time away!!!
I have been playing a lot in my pool that I got for my birthday. It is my favourite thing to do at the moment. I just love to get in the water. Sometimes I go in the bigger pool but only with Mummy or Daddy and that makes me giggle a lot. I have also been to the beach a few times and had so much fun running on the sand and in the water. I can also understand a lot more things now that I am one.......like, when I am shopping with Mummy or Daddy, I always point out the bananas for them.....I say, "Nanas, nanas, nanas", until they get some and put them in the trolley. Once I tried to trick them and when we went past the tomatoes, I said "Nanas, Nanas", but they were a bit too clever as they knew they weren't bananas. My Mummy and Daddy are so smart!!
Today I am going to do some shopping with Mummy, I can't wait. I love to sit in the trolley and watch everything. I especially love to look at all the other little people like me.
Bye bye
Love Sophie

Bonjour,
I have been having so much fun now that I am one year old!! I find I am able to do more things everyday and am learning all the time. I love to copy what Mummy and Daddy do as well and they think that I am very funny!!
We went on a little holiday with our friends from Canada and we stayed in a little cottage in the bush near Margaret River. I had been here before but I was a very little baby then I couldn't remember it very well. I had so much fun exploring the cottage and climbing the stairs and one day I went hiking with Mummy to go an see Daddy rock climbing. It was the best fun ever and the whole hike I kept pointing at things and Mummy would tell me what they were. I saw cows, lots of trees and bush, big rocks, and even a goanna. I also saw lots of seagulls and when they sqauked at me, I would sqauk right back at them. When we got to the cliff where Daddy was climbing I couldn't stop staring at the ocean and the waves crashing down and then Mummy and I saw 2 dolphins swimming!!! I can't wait to tell cousin Justin about that when I am bigger as I know that he really, really loves dolphins!!! I had lots of fun sitting in the dirt and playing!! After that I had a big sleep and when I woke up we went swimming in the ocean and I was giggling so much my face hurt! I love to run after the waves and sometimes I would fall over and then I would laugh even more. One time though I fell over and ended up swallowing some water and then I wasn't laughing anymore and we went home after that. I will tell you more about my adventured later as I have to go now because Mummy needs me to help her go and buy groceries again.
Bye bye
Love Sophie

Bonjour,
I am a big one year old now . As daddy says, "One is fun"!!! Last Thursday Daddy came home and he is going to stay home for a little while and it is going to be great. I was so happy to see him. When we came home, Mummy and Daddy gave me a birthday present. It is a toy xylephone and it makes pretty songs and it can also turn into a toy puppy. Nanny and Grandpa gave me a dolls pram and I love to wheel it around everywhere and sometimes I try to get in it as well. I also got some blocks and some pretty outfits to wear. Then on Friday we went back to the airport and I just realised I have been to the airport 3 times in 4 weeks, I was almost shouting the directions to Mummy from my seat in the back as I know the way now!! We went to get Cheryl and Tony as they are from Canada...(where Memere, Pepere and Cousin Justin live....and lots more of my Canadian relatives!!) they are here to stay with us for a little while. I am really liking having lots of people in the house as there is always someone that is looking at me and always someone to play with. Its so much fun. Then on Sunday I had my first birthday party and 9 of my friends and lots of Mummy and Daddy's friends came over and it was the best party I have ever been to, and I have been to quite a few you know!!! Mummy and Nanny made the yummiest food and MUmmy made a bright pink cake shaped as a number 1 (just incase someone didn't know how old I was!!) and it had smarties all over it and I was allowed to have a very small piece......it was delicious! It was a very hot day and I was given a little pool, so Daddy filled it with water and my friends and I played in it for ages, it was the best fun. I loved playing in the water and splashing everybody. After a few hours in the pool I had to have a sleep as I was soooooooo tired and when I woke up, went back in the pool. It was the best birthday I have ever had...ha ha, I have only had one, silly!!
I have to go, as Dady just came home,
Bye bye
Love Sophie
