Bonjour,
I am so clever because I received my first swimming certificate last Friday at swimming lessons. The certificate was given to me because I am able to climb out of the pool all by myself with no one helping me at all. Mummy put the certificate on the fridge and everybody that come over gets to see it and tell me again how clever I am. I LOVE swimming lessons and almost everyday I ask mummy when I wake up if I am going to swimming lessons and she always says, not today, on Friday. Friday usually takes a really long time to come around as it seems a long time to wait.
Tomorrow I am going to Julie's house as that is my day care. I love going to Julie's house as I play all day long with my friend's Ella, Will and Casey. We do paintings and drawings and we dress up in funny clothes. We all have a sleep after lunch in the playroom and we all lie next to each other and Ella always makes me laugh when we are supposed to be sleeping and then Julie always says, "eyes closed please" and we do it but only because she says please.
Love Sophie

Bonjour,
Last night I was little bit naughty and kept waking up and calling for Mummy. I started at 11pm and kept going every 15 minutes until 1.30am....not sure why, I just wanted Mummy to come and see me and then I would ask to go and sleep in her bed. Anyway, Mummy was not too impressed and she seemed very tired this morning at 5.30am when I woke up...........
Anyway, I have had a busy day today as first I went to play at Nanny and Grandpa's and Grandpa took me to the park. Then I went back to Nanny's and Mummy was there to take me home again, except we didn't go home we went to a big play centre with lots of bouncy castles and fun things for me to play with. We saw my friends Will and Jayde there and I had so much fun running around and jumping and playing. Then we had chips (fries for the Canadian readers) for lunch and they were very yummy. I had so much fun I didn't want to go home. Mummy would say, "Sophie, time to go home now" and I would say, "Not yet, but soon"......I say that for a lot of things. So then Mummy would wait a little bit longer and I would keep running around and then all of a sudden I got so tired I couldn't find mummy and I couldn't stop rubbing my eyes and waking in a crooked line. Mummy picked me up and I fell asleep in the car before she even started the car up. When we came home I slept for over 2 hours.
Bye Bye
Love Sophie

Bonjour,
Hello again. Well, I am one month older since my last journal entry. Mummy was unable to use the computer due to some technical difficulties, but now I am back to tell you all my news. The biggest news is that I have just come home from a holiday on Rottnest Island, ( an Island 11 km's off the coast of Western Australia....for all my non Aussie readers!!!)I went with Mummy and Daddy but Nanny, Grandpa, Aunty Jane and Aunty Em and Uncle Carl were there as well and I had lots of fun. We had to get there by boat and that was my first trip on a big boat. We stayed in a little chalet and we went to the beach everyday. Daddy even buried me in the sand with only my head sticking out. That was pretty funny because I couldn't see my legs...so I kept saying, "Daddy, have you seen Sophie's legs???" and Daddy would say, "No, I can't find them" and then I would laugh a lot because it was very funny.

I did lots of bike riding as well on Rottnest Island, actually daddy does all the riding and I sit on the back in my own special seat. Daddy can ride very, very fast and sometimes I give him a running commentary about all the things I can see along the way, like, trees, dogs, other bikes, babies in prams, colours of cars etc.........but sometimes he goes so fast everything is just one big blur. I also liked to go to find quokkas, these are a little animal like a very small kangaroo and they come out in the afternoon and they are very friendly. Everyone would take turns to take me out to find some and I asked about 100 times if we could go to find them.

So now I am back at home and Daddy had to go to work again this morning on the plane. I am a bit sad about that but Dan and Maryse are here to play with, so that is good fun. Tomorrow all my friends are coming over to play and I just can't wait, a brand new baby is coming as well because Haileys Mummy had a new baby and it came from her belly. ( I know this because her belly was very big and then she had the baby and the belly went away!!!)

Bye Bye
Love Sophie
