Goodbye 2......HELLOOOOOO 3!!!!!!!!





Bonjour,
Sorry it has taken me a couple of days to update you on my fantastic birthday party but I have needed some time to recover.....and play with my many new gifts!!! I had such a great time at my party. I just love the idea of whenever anyone arrived they hand me a nice big shiny present.......so great. I was very careful to say thank you to them...well, for the firts couple of times...after that is all just got way too exciting!!!! It was a dress up party and I was the pretty fairy princess.

Who Came:
Will (spiderman), Lenny (batman), Oliver, Angus(spiderman), Ben, Harry, Maddie (pretty fairy), Jordan (pink fairy), Jayde (pretty girl), Molly (white fairy), Jack (superman), Alice (baby fairy) Olivia (beautiful fairy), Lara, Natalie, and lots of grown ups!!!

Lovely presents:
Dolls house, playdough and painting set, barbie doll, tinkerbell doll and back pack, jewellry box, barbie bag, pink bathers and shorts, 3 new tops, new skirt, new pink shorts, 4 x books, new baby and baby clothes and baby bottle, baby pram, new "bratz" plate and bowl set, magna doodle, keyboard and microphone (I sing on it all day) bangles, rings and necklaces, fairy dominoes, snakes and ladder game.......wow, I got very spoilt!!

Party food:
Fairy bread, pink cup cakes, chocolate cup cakes, green faced biscuits, vegemite and cheese sandwiches, party pies, mini sausage rolls, potato smily faces, mini quiche, mini hot dogs, sausage and cheese pinwheels, cheezels, watermelon and strawberries........then the best "princess birthday cake ever"!!!!! Yum Yum

We all played a game called "pass the parcel"..when the music stops whoever has the parcel unwraps the paper and there is a special treat inside and then at the end and even better special treat. It was good fun. Then we played with the ball on the lawn and drew pictures on the bricks with chalk and rode bikes and guess what.......there was no crying and all my friends played nicely and I didn't mind sharing any of my things......(except my new baby, I didn't like anyone running off with her!!!!) Before everyone left I handed out "special lolly bags" and there was one for me too....yay!

When everybody left about 1.30pm, I had to have a sleep because Princess's need their beauty sleep and I was very very tired. I slept for 2 hours and then woke up and had fun playing with all my new things. It was the best party ever!!!

Also a card in the letterbox from Tante Gisele...thank you all very much!!! Memere and Pepere sent me a beautiful princess dress and shoes. I love it and I put it on straight away and then never wanted to take it off!!!

Oh yeah, Iv'e changed my mind (because I can) I now am getting Mummy to make me a "princess cake"...not a caterpillar cake.

The Purple Man


Bonjour,
Thought I should share with you all my current obsession (now that is a big word!). I call him the purple man and he lives near our house and we drive past him in the car sometimes. He usually dances and waves to me BUT, one day we went past and he was hanging off the building and I couldn't stop the tears from falling, "What''s happened to my purple man" I cried over and over and over again. Mummy said he must off fallen off the building (talk about breaking it to me gently!!!) I was in utter devastation (another big word!) I cried and cried rivers of tears (OK, so a bit dramatic now!) Mummy kept saying please be quite Sophie so I can concentrate on driving!!! Anyway, the next day again we went past and not only was he not hanging off the side of the building...he was gone completely. Everytime we ever go anywhere in the car I always say..."Can we see the purple man today" and because he is so close to our house Mummy I think offten drives past him for me even when we fdon't really need to go past him. Anyway, a few days ago we drove past and all of a sudden Mummy says, "Guess what"..I see the purple man is back!!!!! WOW, I got so excited we drove extra slow and there he was waving and dancing at me. I was so happy I told everyone. Then the other day Mummy and Sasha and I went for a big walk to a different park and we walked past him and Mummy took a photo of him so I could show you all my friend..."The Purple Man"!!

Happy Birthday Daddy!



Bonjour,
Daddy had a birthday yesterday. Daddy and I went out for breakfast in the morning and had bacon and eggs which is Daddy's favourite. Mummy had to go to work so she couldn't come. Daddy opened all his presents and he loved them all..(good job Mum!!) After breakfast I went to Nanny and Grandpa's and they looked after me because daddy had to do some work at the house. When I came home Mummy had made a cake and put lots of candles on it and I helped her decorate it. We sang happy birthday 3 times and I got to help blow the candles out with him, it was fun and a very yummy chocolate cake as well! OK, now daddy has had his birthday we can go back to talking about mine and me, me , me!!!! Afterall, this is my journal and it is supposed to be all about me!!! I am still very excited that my party is coming closer, only 8 more sleeps!!

The Big Smoke!

Bonjour,
I have had such a busy weekend! On Saturday my friend Angus(aged 4) and his little sister Molly (aged 20 months) came to my house for a sleep over. Mummy took us all including Sasha to the park...she sure had her hands full. Molly sat in the pram, I say on the top of it and Angus walked and Sasha ran and Mummy huffed and puffed!!!! We played for a long time and Angus was pretending he was Spiderman which made me laugh because I think he actually really does believe he is Spiderman!!!! After the park we walked home again and Angus was too tired to walk but there was just no room for him as well on the pram.
We had a special dinner...chicken nuggets and chips (fries for all you canadians) and then little buckets with ice cream...yum, yum! Then we had a bubble bath and managed to cover almost the whole floor with water from all our splashing!!! Then we watched the movie "Madagasgar"and played some more before we had to go to bed. It was great fun!!

Then yesterday after Angus and Molly went home, Mummy and I caught the train into the city...(The big smoke!!) This was only my second time on the train and the last time I was only 1 year old and it is hard to remember stuff when you were only 1!!! I sat next to Mummy and stared at all the people getting on or off and then I broke into song and sang my very best performance of "Baa Baa black sheep"...when I realised I had a captive audience I continued on with "ABCD... etc" I even got a couple of claps. When it was time to get off the train I sat in the pram and enjoyed watching everything going on. We saw some funny people dancing and singing in the street and a man made balloons into different things...he made me a little puppy dog! We went to a lot of shops because Mummy said we were looking for a present for daddy's birthday! My favourite part of all the shopping was when we saw all the Christmas trees and train sets. WOW!!! I have a feeling I am going to LOVE Christmas. I sort of remembered a bit of it from last year but I am getting very excited for it this year. I love all the lights on the trees. I even asked Mummy if maybe I could get a Christmas tree for my birthday as well as a dolls house!! Mummy said, NO! Not even a "maybe" or "if you are a good girl" which is what she usually says!!!
After all the shopping we found something for Daddy...but I'm not allowed to tell you what it is because it is a secret!!! The best part of all.....I got an ice cream cone and we sat on the steps in the sunshine and watched all the seagulls. After my ice cream I was allowed to chase the sea gulls which I did for a little while until I chased them all away and no more birds came.
We then walked over to a different part of the city to the Art Gallery because Aunty Jane and Nanny and Grandpa were going to be there. I got very excited when Mummy said it was an "Art Gallery". I thought I would be able to do some of my art, maybe some painting or drawing....but, it was nothing like that at all, only lots of grown ups looking at pictures on the walls. By this stage I started to get very tired, so it was back on the train home and then I was so tired I went to bed at 6.30pm, I took my puppy like balloon to bed with me and woke up in the middle of the night and yelled out to Mummy because I couldn't find it.....so Mummy came in to find it then I went back to sleep.
Bye Bye
Love Sophie

Sleeping Beauty


Bonjour,
I don't know why, but Mummy seems to think this photo needed to be the focus of my journal today. Grandpa took this photo when I was having my nap at Nanny and Grandpa's house on Thursday while Mummy was at work. Nanny told Mummy I was very tired (borderline grumpy......I've no idea what she is talking about!!!) we had been at the beach park playing and been to have a picnic with Aunty Emily and Jack...no wonder I was so tired! On the way back to the house I wanted to pick some flowers and insisted I take them with me to have my nap...then I fell asleep clutching them. I mean wha't the big deal. I am sure people fall asleep holding flowers all the time. One time I fell asleep holding a lolly pop in my hand and when I woke up I carried on eating it as if I hadn't been asleep at all.
Today is a beautiful day. I love to say that. When we leave the house in the morning I always say to Mummy, "What a beautiful day", sometimes it is cloudy and Mummy has to say, "it's not as beautiful as it could be!!!" Mummy and I are working in the garden today. Well, she is working. I am riding my bike around her and then playing soccer and then playing with Sasha.......weeding is not really my thing!!!

Busy Girl!


Bonjour,
Time sure flies when you are having fun, that's for sure!!!! Last Tuesday we had a little party at our house for all the kids in our playgroup as we all have our birthdays within weeks of each other. It was great fun and my gift was some playdough. I like making things with playdough although so far I am only good at making balls and sausages as they are easy. I can also make a snowman (because thats just balls on top of each other!!!) although, I'm not sure about that as I have not actually ever seen a snowman....I've just been taking Mummy and Daddy's word for it that is what they look like!!!! Anyway, we had lots and lots of balloons and a birthday cake with 3 candles and lots of fun playing with my friends. All the Mummy's said we were all very good little kids as there was no crying and no fights and that I shared my toys very nicely. We just looked at our Mummy's as if to say....Hello, what do you expect...we are big 3 year olds now .....(except me, because I still have 2 and a half weeks to wait...although, I have always been very mature for my age!!!
On the weekend Daddy had to work so I had to play with Mummy. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind playing with Mummy.....just not ALL the time. I mean Mummy sometimes disappears to clean and wash and vaccuum and fold clothes unlike Daddy he is just the "playing machine".....and he is happy to do whatever I want to do and he is just so so very funny!!!
On Sunday though, I go to church with Nanny and Grandpa and then we go to visit Lally after church. I like to sing in church (but not as loud as Grandpa...he sings very loudly!!!) I like going to church and Nanny says I am always a good girl and lots of people always come to say hello to me and tell Nanny and Grandpa I am very cute. What does cute mean anyway!!
Anyway, Daddy is going on the plane tomorrow to work and he is going to be gone for 6 whole big sleeps. Poor daddy he is going to really really really miss me and me him. He is going to come home the day before his birthday...then after his birthday it is someone elses......I bet you can't guess who I talking about!!!!!!!!

How come birds don't wear clothes??



Bonjour,
I went with Mummy to buy us a new bath. It is a bath for birds. Wow, I didn't even know birds had to have baths!!! I love having my bath and I can't wait to see the birds having a bath in our new bird bath. We put it outside in the garden and we put coloured stones in there as well and Mummy thinks that we should get a lot of butterflies come as well to drink from the bird bath. That's going to be great because I LOVE butterflies almost as much as I love caterpillars. I don't know if I told you but Mummy is making me a pink caterpillar cake for my birthday. (sorry, had to mention my birthday again!!!!) It's going to have 3 candles on it and 2 smarties for eyes. Mummy said caterpillars after they have finished being caterpillars turn into butterflies. (I'm not sure if this is true because it doesn't seem possible to me!!!) Which makes me wonder about birds again. If they have a bath how come they don't wear clothes???
Love Sophie

Here is a picture of me and my friends Hailey and Ella playing with our birdbath. They love it as well.

Growing Pains

Bonjour,
This morning I am still very tired and I am supposed to be excited because we are having our combined play group birthday party today at our house. I am so tired because for the 3rd time this week I have been waking up in the nights because my legs hurt so much. Last night I cried and cried and cried and Mummy was trying to rub them but it still hurt and I couldn't sleep. Mummy said it is because my legs are growing longer as I am getting bigger. She is so clever my Mummy....she knows EVERYTHING!!! Why does it hurt at night time and not in the day time. Anyway, after I had been crying for a while I started to almost fall asleep again and Mummy went back to bed......then....major disaster...I felt around for my baby and then couldn't find baby's bottle...OH NO....so I called out for Mummy again and she came to find it. Phew, that was lucky. Then, not long after that, my legs hurt again so Mummy cam in again to cuddle me. This morning when I woke up I looked down at my legs to see how much taller I was after all that growing in the night and I couldn't believe I couldn't tell the difference!!!!
Anyway, my friends will be here soon so I better go and get my party hat on.
Love Sophie

Party Girl


Bonjour,
Yes, that is me. I am a party girl. I have been to 2 birthday parties this weekend. Jordan's and Jayde's. That means 2 times singing Happy Birthday to you and 2 times eating birthday cake yum yum my favourite. Guess what else on Tuesday I am going to another party and also another one next Saturday. I am the luckiest little girl...(well, that is what Mummy says anyway!!!)
It is a beautiful day today and Mummy and Daddy walked me to the park with Sasha. I went on the slide and the swings and did lots of running around. It was great fun. Sasha loves the park as much as me.
That's all I have to say today. I am pretty tired from my big weekend so I am going to have a rest now.
Love Sophie
