Bonjour,
Today I went to play at Nanny and Grandpa's house for a couple of hours. I like to play in the backyard and I helped Grandpa plant some flowers. I like to smell them and sometimes when no one is looking I pull the pretty flowers off the plant but I am not really supposed to do that even if it is fun!! I also like ot pick grapes right off the vine in the backyard....mmmm grapes are my favourite and there is all the grapes in the whole world hanging on the trees ready for me to eat but sometimes I get sick of them when I have eaten too much. After that, Mummy came back to get me and we had lunch. I had pasta shaped all differently and then I had yoghurt and I am getting very clever at using the spoon and getting it in my mouth and not all over the place and in my hair and on Sasha. Mummy said I was soooo smart!! After lunch I was very tired but I had Gymbaroo and I didn't really feel like playing today so I cried a bit and wanted Mummy to hold me. I didn't mind watching the other kids play, I just didn't feel like playing today and I really wasn't in the mood for dancing, even though I am a very good dancer!!! So when we came home I had a very very long sleep...almost 3 hours....so that is good as I will now be very happy and playful for when Daddy gets home.
Yesterday was a very hot day and Aunty Jane came over and we went to the beach and then in the afternoon after my sleep we played in the pool and it was so much fun.
Bye bye
Love Sophie

Bonjour,
I am very sorry I have not been keeping you all informed about my exciting daily events but I have not been feeling my usual happy self lately and have been keeping Mummy very busy looking after me so she hasn't had a lot of time to type my diary for me. I have had very, very sore gums as I now have 2 molars and boy did they hurt coming through. I even have had bleeding gums and even the doctors say that that is unusual. Last week when it was 40 degrees I had a high temperature as well so I felt very hot and cranky so Mummy kept putting me under a cool shower and this felt a little better. Today I am feeling a bit better but I didn't get to go to Gymbaroo because I was very very tired so I stayed home and had a sleep instead. I am sad because I will miss seeing all my friends at gymbaroo and I have been practising my dancing and I am sure they would have all been very impressed with my cool new moves.....(I can point my finger and do the twist!!!!!) Also I have been saying a lot more words lately as well...No is my new favourite word and I say it all the time....even when I really mean yes....I think it is very confusing for Mummy and Daddy as often they ask me if I want something to eat and I say "No" and then I get angry with them because they don't give me anything, I just don't know how to say "Yes" yet!!
I have to go now but I promise I will get Mummy to type more about my adventures later.
Bye bye
Love Sophie

Bonjour,
Well, just when I thought I had Mummy and Daddy all figured out, they have gone and changed the rules on me!!!! For a little while now, I had been waking up in the night and finding that I would much rather be up and playing with Mummy and Daddy and my toys, so I would stand in my cot and scream until one of them...(mostly Mummy) would come running. Because I have found this so fun, I had started to do it more and more often and sometimes I would wait for Mummy to get back in bed and almost fall asleep before I would start screaming again.....I could tell she really liked this game!!!! Anyway, like I said I thought this was great fun although I had been feeling a lot more tired in the day as all that screaming at night can really take it all out of you and then one night I screamed and nobody came. I screamed and screamed for a very long time and then I thought, oh well.....no point carrying on, I will just go to sleep and so I did and for the last 2 nights I have not bothered with the game anymore and I have noticed that Mummy seems extra happy when she comes to get me in the morning and I also have been feeling so much better as well.
I have also had so much happening in my life this past week, I now go to Gymbaroo as well as Playgroup. On Mondays Mummy takes me to Gymbaroo and it is great fun. I love playing on all the equipment and I am a really good climber...(just like Daddy) then we sit in a circle and sing songs but I'm not very good at that as sitting still is not one of my strong points...(just like Daddy)...although Daddy is good at singing songs, he is not good at sitting still, (according to Mummy).
