Bonjour,
So much to tell you all. Firstly, I no longer have my 3 dummies. One day I just decided I didn't need them anymore. Actually to tell the truth, I think Mummy tricked me into thinking it was my decision because if I do ask about them she always says...."You wanted to cut them up and YOU wanted to put them in the garbage bin and then the garbage truck took them all away"....OK, I remember it happening like that but not sure why I decided to do that. Anyway, I am OK with it now as I am a pretty big girl. On Sunday Nanny took me to church again. I love going to church. I like to stand at the end of the pew and yell out "Alleluia"(Pretty good spelling for a 2 year old!!!!) Also, I like to point out to Nanny all the babies with dummies which the people sitting behind me think is very amusing.
OK, now for the really BIG news!!! I am not wearing nappies anymore!!!!! I go on the potty or the big toilet sometimes as well. I am so clever. I haven't had many accidents either. Yesterday when all my friends came over to play, I showed them how I go on the potty and everybody clapped and said what a good girl I am. So now you can see why I am so big now, no dummies and no nappies. WOW, things really do happen fast when you are 2!!!
OK, now I have to go and I mean I really have to go.
Bye Bye
Love Sophie

Bonjour,
I have swimming lessons again tomorrow. I am so excited, I hope I can sleep. Ok, that is not very funny as Mummy says as I actually have been a bit naughty in the "sleeping" department. I have been going to bed at the right time, but for some reason I just wake up and cry out for mummy. I yell out all kinds of things, like"I want milk", or "I no want more sleep" or"I want mummy's bed" or "I need blanket on". Anyway, the last few nights I have been crying and yelling out for a couple of hours and I can tell Mummy is not very impressed with me. She comes to my room in the night and tells me to lie down and go to sleep and she doesn't listen to any of my requests. Maybe I need a new tactic. I mean, it's not that hard to give me milk or a blanket or put me in her bed now is it. It's not like I am asking her for a 3 course meal when I wake in the night and I mean after all, I am 2 and why can't I get whatever I like. Actually, because you are all avid readers of my daily life, I will let you in on a secret. I am trying to see how much"pull" I have got in this Mummy /toddler relationship and I have to tell you folks I really don't have a lot. So after our little chat before bed (the chat Mummy has with me everynight) the one about, if I wake in the night I am supposed to just roll over and go back to sleep...(pullleeeaaase, does she think I am Sasha!!!!) and that I am not supposed to cry out for hours on end and that in the morning Mummy will come and get me out of my cot when I wake up. Ok, so after that chat I decided maybe she is right and really it does get pretty exhausting yelling out at all those ungodly hours of the morning so tonight I am going to try very, very hard to stay asleep all night. I will let you know how I go tomorrow........that's if you don't here it from Mummy first!!!
Goodnight,
Love Sophie
