11 months old

(Playing peek a boo in the cubby at Nanny and Grandpa's house)

Hello there, well, another month down and only one month to go to reach that all important major milestone of......'1 year old'. I am getting so big. I'm not taking any steps yet and don't know what all the fuss about walking is really.....I am SO fast at crawling, in fact I am so fast I practically beat Mummy, Daddy and Sophie in races around the house...and THEY are walking!!!! I do like to stand up though and hold onto furniture and walk around it AND I just LOVE to dance!!!!! ANY kind of music, the second I hear it I start rocking up and down. Mummy says it makes for interesting visits to the shopping centre, I sit in the trolley and bop the whole time.

Lately my favourite game is "peek a boo", I love to hide even if it is behind my own hands. I think I am so clever and that no one can see me. WELL, even if they can see me, they act very surprised when I say 'boo"....yes, I can say boo! I also say Mamamamama and dadadadad and bubububub, I also can copy a lot of other words when they are said to me. Mummy swears I have said "Sasha" a few times and Sophie thinks I have said full sentences like......"I want a drink" and "I want to go to the park"!!!! BUT, Mummy being as clever as she is knows that Sophie is just making it up, good try though big sis! :-)

Been up to a bit of fun lately......or as Mummy calls it....mischief!!!! Love playing with the hose but really glad nobody turned it on! I am fascinated by daddy's guitars and albums and he is not happy for me to touch them at all....hmmm, not sure why!

I now weigh 9.6 kilos and my hair is growing. My eyes are still brown and quite all the girls tell me! I have just ahd my 3rd tooth make an appearance and I really hate it when they break through the gums, makes me so cranky and I much prefer being happy than does everyone around me. I'm STILL giving Mummy a hard time by waking lots and lots at night. Some nights are pretty bad but a new doctor I have been seeing has been shedding some light on why I wake so much. I may have an allergy but the doctor is not sure as to what I have an allergy to. (could be Sasha!!)I have to go see some other special doctors and I also have to go and have a big hearing test to make sure my ears are not the problem. Mummy and daddy say it is just so so lucky (for me) that I am so cute and happy otherwise they could be really mad at me for waking them up so much..........
bye for now

What's new pussycat???

I bet you all thought I was a real pussy cat!!!!

Of course you didn't....pussy cats aren't pink!!!!!!! I have been meowing all afternoon and I even managed to scare Sasha (she thinks I really am a cat!!!) Luc just keeps laughing at me. There is no tricking him, he is too clever for a baby.

Be back soon

Is it Summer Yet????

We have had a lot of rain this winter. It was very slow to start and then all of a sudden it rained for days on end. We need a lot of rain though because Mummy says for a long time it hasn't rained enough and Australia is very very dry. We have to be very careful when we use water so we don't waste it!!

Anyway, because we have had sooooooooo much rain, on the days when it is atually sunny I think that summer must be here, but no, it just means it is a nice winters day because it is still cold (20 degrees!!!) Daddy took Luc to the beach last weekend on one of our 'nice winter's days' when I was at my friend Ebony's birthday party. Daddy said he loved it, loved the sand and the waves and especially loved trying to shovel sand into his mouth. Daddy said the beach is looking great. Yay, I can't wait till summer!!!!
Love Sophie

Butterfly Face

We have had a busy weekend. On Friday night our friends, "The Burns Family" came over for dinner. They are moving to Melbourne very soon and I am really going to miss my friends Angus and Molly. Melbourne is far away and I would have to take a plane to get there. I hope they will come back to visit us a lot. It was good fun playing AND I got to stay up late and watch movies with them.

On Saturday it was Nanny's birthday and we had afternoon tea AND my favourite....birthday cake. I even got to help blow the candles out There was lots of yummy food. My baby brother wasn't feeling good again (teething) and he wasn't his usual friendly self, he was a bit better after a little sleep. Cisco and Sari were there and of course Jacky boy. So many of us little people now and we all know how to make lots of noise. I'm the oldest and I help look after everybody.
On Sunday it was Lally' s (Great Grandmother) birthday and we went to a restaurant for breakfast. Dadddy couldn't come because he went on a plane in the middle of the night to the Phillipines to work. He hasn't been there before and he said he was going to bring me something special home from there!!!!! I am a little bit sad still that he is away but he will be home in 6 sleeps already. Breakfast was yummy and afterwards we went for a walk and I got my face painted!!!! I was a pink butterfly. I loved it so much I didn't want it to ever wash off.......................
