Bonjour,
I have been a busy little girl once again. All weekend I helped Mummy and Daddy weed the garden and dig and sweep. It is very hard work but I am such a huge help. I am starting to learn that you are not supposed to pull the flowers up out of the garden, only weeds. I am getting better at telling the difference but you know I am not even 2 years old yet and Mummy and Daddy have had to remind me a lot of times.....but the flowers are so pretty, I like to pull at them more than boring green weeds!!!
My cold is getting better as well.....oh yeah, I forgot to tell you that I even had a cold in the first place. That's because it doesn't bother me too much, not as much as my sore black finger does so I thought I didn't even need to mention it and besides I am so brave a bit of a blocked nose and cough doesn't slow me down too much.
Yesterday we went to the park and I saw Bailey and I went running up to him because I thought Justin and Ginette and John were at the park as well and I was so happy I ran straight up to Bailey but Daddy kept saying that it is not Bailey although it looks just like him. Anyway, sometimes Daddy's don't know everything so I just kept calling him Bailey anyway and patting him and running after him and calling for Justin and then when we left the park I said bye bye Bailey.
Guess what else, daddy's name is not just daddy but Denis so I have been calling him Denis as well especially when I need his urgent attention.
Have to go now asI am playing at Nanny and Grandpa's house and they have put up a tent in the backyard and I love playing in there.
Bye Bye
Love Sophie

Bonjour,
I have a sore finger. I accidently slammed my drawers on my finger this morning when Mummy and I were in my room picking out my clothes to wear today. Mummy opened the drawer and then I put my fingers on the edge and slammed it thinking it would be a really fun thing to do and boy was I wrong!!! Mummy put it under the cold water and then she kissed it better....(starting to realise that that never works!!!) Tonight my whole finger nail is all black and I cant wait to show Daddy when he comes home tommorow because now I am quite fascinated with my black fingernail and I think Daddy will like it as well.
So I had a great time at my 2 parties on the weekend....I played so much and had so much fun party food to eat. Aunty Jane took me to the party in the afternoon and there was a bouncy castle and I jumped and jumped all afternoon and had so much fun with the other kids. When Mummy came to pick me up I realised I was very very tired so we came home and I went to sleep....but not for very long...soon I was awake and crying and Mummy said that I had probably had too much sugar and party food and my tummy was a bit sore...(Mummy's are so clever!!!). Anyway, the next day, Mummy told me we had to go to another birthday party as my friend Madeline was having her 2nd birthday party....so off we went and it was at a play centre called "Wild Kidz", which is exactly what I turned into after another day of party food and lots of jumping and playing on the slide.
So today and yesterday I have not been too happy with Mummy because she hasn't taken me to any more parties and I was starting to think that it would be a regular thing. In the morning when I am getting dressed I say to Mummy....I want a party, I want a party. Mummy said the only party coming up was the one we are having when Daddy gets home and it is called, "Weeding the garden and tidying the backyard party".....something tells me there will be no bouncy castle or fairy bread at this party!! Not only that the only people going to this party is Mummy, Daddy and I!!!!
Yesterday I sat on the bench and helped Mummy squeeze hundreds of lemons from our tree in the backyard to make juice and then we put the juice in the freezer. Well, because Mummy called it juice I decided to have a drink of it and that is something I will try to remember not to do again as it tasted very different to the juice I normally drink. Mummy looked at my face and laughed at me for a long time because my face was all screwed up, I dont know what was so funny...it was so yuck and the new word I learnt for it is sour!!!!
Bye Bye
Love Sophie

Bonjour,
Mummy is very happy this morning with me because I have finally stopped waking up at 4am every morning and wanting breakfast!! Today I didnt wake up until 7am which is supposedly the correct time for little people like me! I dont know what the big fuss is but I do notice Mummy and Daddy seem a lot happier when I wake at the time they prefer. I was a bit sad because Mummy then said that Daddy had to go to work and he is gone for 6 days....oh no, as if I don't have enough people I am missing already, I now am going to really miss daddy as well.
To ease my sadness, Mummy told me that I am going to 2 birthday parties on Sunday...gosh, I am popular!! One in the morning and one in the afternoon. Aunty Jane is taking me to the party in the afternoon and there is going to be a bouncy castle so I can jump to my little hearts content...(we all know how I love to jump!!!!)
Also my biggest news is that I am going to be getting a new cousin....a baby cousin, because Aunty Emily and Uncle Carl are going to be getting me one, but they're not getting it for a little while so I have to wait. Mummy said it wont get here in time for Christmas and that we have to wait till Aunty Emily's tummy gets really big because that is where the baby will live for a while. I know that probably sounds very weird to you all, because a baby growing in a tummy sounds weird to me as well!!
Bye Bye
Love Sophie

Bonjour all,
I am back!!!!! I have taken a little break as you can see by the date of my last diary entry and I have very good reasons for this. I have been such a busy little girl and I am now a world seasoned traveller. I have been to Hong Kong and Canada and been on more planes and eaten more airline meals and waited for long times in more airports than any other baby I know. I know how to open and close a seatbelt on a plane in less than that 5.5 seconds and I know that if you play long enough with the buttons on the armrest on the plane an important looking person in a uniform will come and ask me if I want juice or milk.......how cool is that!!!
Right now I am a bit sad because I am really missing my Memere and Pepere, (especially the horsy rides) and I also miss Justin, Ginette and John and today I even missed Bailey as I asked Mummy is we could see Bailey!!! I have figured it out that the long plane rides were to go see all my Canadian relatives as I have noticed since we came home that I haven't been able to see them and that makes me sad. Although, I was very happy to see Nanny and Grandpa, Lally, Emily, Jane and Carl!
Mummy and Daddy have been showing me all the photos of our trip and so I know I didn't dream all the fun things I did, like playing in the pool with Justin, Memere and Pepere, walking around the house in Memere's sandals, climbing up and down stairs....(I really, really miss that!!!) driving in Pepere's car, going visiting with Memere and Pepere to see Grand Memere and Grand Pepere....(thay have stairs in their house as well that I love!!!), playing on the slide...oooohhh, I really really miss that as well!!, staying at the cottage with Ginette, John, Justin andBailey and going to the beach and playing in the sand with Memere and Pepere. It was all so much fun and I even miss all my "great" aunts, like Gisele, (she's my favourite as well!!), Della, Bernice and Gerry, Lea and Ronnie and I had so much fun with Nadine and Jean and Luc and Alexandre...(they are my big cousins), but I also have some other little ones, Maxim and Simon as well. Then there was all the fun I had with Justin, Jakob and Mathieu. I haven't told Mummy and Daddy yet, but I think I am in love with Mathieu!!!! It is going to have to be a very long distance relationship and as we both can't really talk yet, I am not sure how we will continue. I would first be in love with Justin, but he is my cousin, so it is a different kind of love!!!!! He is the best cousin in the world and I really loved playing with him. He is so good at sharing, where I am not so good at it yet, but one day I hope to be as good as Justin. We loved to watch movies together and I like to laugh at the bits he laughs at because he knows if they are really funny whereas I just laugh because I think HE is so funny!
Well it is time for me to go and eat breakfast, so I will fill you in on some more of my adventures later......Bye bye
Love Sophie
