Bonjour,
I had lots of fun on the weekend, even though Mummy says that everyday is a weekend for me!!!!! I went to the beach 3 times and played in my pool a lot. Daddy has taught me how to float and I really like to do that except sometimes I swallow a bit of water as well. Then on Sunday, we went to the Markets and Mummy and Daddy bought lots of fruit and vegetables and then the highlight of my day........my very first taste of ice cream!!!!!! I had what they call, "a baby cone"!!! All that means is that my ice cream cone was about five times smaller than the one Daddy was eating!!!!! It was so delicious and I really loved getting it all over my face, hands, clothes and Mummy even found some in my armpit!!!!! I look forward to one day enjoying having another one of those, that's for sure.
I also had to have 2 more needles, one is so I don't get chicken pox and one was so I don't get Meningoccocal (not bad spelling for a 15 month old????) disease. Anyway, I was not very happy with Mummy for the rest of the day as she was the one that took me to get the needles and then proceeded to hold me tightly so the nurse could jab me........what a mean Mummy!!!!! So I decided to get back to her and on Sunday night I thought it would be a great idea to wake up at 12.30am and stay awake until 4.30am and cry every 1 5 minutes...or until Mummy would come in to see me. Poor Daddy had to get up to go to work at 4.30am and so because of me he didn't get much sleep either. So Needless to say, I was one very grumpy baby the next day and Mummy took me on the train into the city and I cried a lot because I wanted to run up the aisle of the moving train and Mummy wouldn't let me and then I tried to climb on the lady sitting next to me so Mummy had to strap me back in the pram which made me cry even louder and then a man with a big hat and lots of badges on came to talk to Mummy and she showed him our ticket but when he walked away Mummy said he had come to tell me to be quiet or that we were going to have to get off the train........miraculously after that I was quiet for the rest of the journey!!!!!!!!
Today I have been a really good girl and even had a 2 and a half hour sleep which is very good for me.
Bye bye
Love Sophie

Bonjour,
Today Mummy, Sasha and I went for a very long walk. We even stopped along the way and I played in a park for a little while and made some new friends. They were much older than me but because I am so friendly I just get along with everyone, in fact I think they were far more interested in Sasha than me as they kept playing more with Sasha. After that we kept on walking and I started to play a game with Mummy, except I forgot to tell Mummy that I was playing it!!! The game is called....."Throw my hat out of the pram and onto the pavement"!!!! Its really fun, I throw my hat out and then Mummy picks it up and gives it back to me, often we do this about 5 times until Mummy gets bored with it...(by the way, she gets bored very quickly!!!) Anyway today Mummy didn't even throw it back once and it wasnt till we had walked for another half an hour that Mummy said, "Sophie, where is your hat????" and I gave her my best look of, "What do you mean, 'where is my hat', then I heard her say...Oh no, youv'e dropped it and we will have to go back to find it......so anyway, our walk turned very very long and I got a little bit bored sitting still for so long and then Mummy gave me a drink of water and I thought maybe she did want to play the "Pick up" game after all, so I threw my water cup onto the pavement and then it cracked and broke and after that I thought maybe I better think of a new game becasue Mummy doesn't sem to enjoy that one too much.
Anyway, my Daddy is working away at the moment but he will be home tomorrow so that is only one sleep away. I was a bit confused this morning because when I woke up I called for him, like this...Da, Da da and then Mummy came in and I gave her the "Not you, I want dada look!!!!
I have to go now, its hout outside so I am going to go in my pool.....yipppeeeee!!!

Bonjour,
Yesterday I went swimming in my friend Will's pool, it was great fun and great to be able to get nice and cool. I liked to climb up the stairs of the pool and then jump back in and Mummy would catch me. Then after about 20 minutes I was bored with this and needed Mummy to provide some new stimulating activity to entertain me with. I have been doing this a lot lately and I heard Mummy telling Daddy she thinks I am going through the "terrible twos"....even though I am only 1!!!!! I have been whining a lot but I get so frustrated when Mummy and Daddy don't know what I am wanting and also I am only sleeping 1 nap a day which was purely my decision because if it were up to Mummy she would have me sleeping 2 times a day still!!!!! Mummy tries to put me to sleep but I end up sitting and playing in my cot for about 10 minutes before I start yelling out...Mumumumumumum....until I am rescued out of there.
Anyway, I better go, so much to do, so much mess to make...
Bye bye
Love Sophie

Bonjour,
I have been one little hot girl lately. It is so hot I have found it hard to sleep at night because I am so hot. I have a fan in my room but I still feel really really warm. During the day I have been in my pool a lot and also I have been at the beach in the morning for the last 4 days in a row. Yesterday I looked very cool in my pink swimsuit and hat and my trendy pink sunglasses I am setting a fashion example for all 1 year olds for the beach!!!! I like it when Mummy and Daddy take me out in the ocean a little bit deeper....but not too far out!! Today I wnet to play at Ella's house. Mummy said we were going there for a few hours because they have air conditioning ....and we don't, so we went there to play and there house was nice and cool. I had so much fun because Ella has her very own cubby house. We took turns playing inside and making each other cups of tea and then we had vegemite sandwiches for lunch and when it was time to go home we kissed each other and waved good bye. Ella is my best friend in the whole world!!!!!!!
When we got home I only slept for 1 hour instead of 2 and a half, so I have been very tired and cranky and hot for the rest of the day, I have a feeling Mummy and Daddy are going to put me to bed early tonight and I am quite glad about that.
Bye Bye
Love Sophie

Bonjour,
Today Mummy said that I was in danger of turning into a fish because I like my pool so much, just like a fish would I suppose!!!!. I cry lots when it is time to get out and that is even when my fingers and toes are a bit wrinkly. I already have a suntan as well but Mummy and Daddy are very careful about me being covered up in the sun and always make sure I have my hat on as well. I think I am getting some more teeth as I haven't been my usual happy self lately and I have been waking up a lot in the night time....how many more teethe am I going to need is what I want to know as I seem to do very well with the 7 and a half that I have right now!!!!
Daddy and I have a new game. He asks me, "what does a cow say" and I say "Moooooo", then he asks me "what does a pussy cat say" and I say meeeeeoooow and then he says "what does a puppy dog say" and I say oof woof and sometimes I try to trick him and when he says, "what does a cow say", I say woof oof and he calls me silly because we all know that that is what the puppy says!!!!
Bye for now,
Love Sophie
