This week’s word of the week is:
Sophie turned one on Monday and we celebrated her birthday with a party on Saturday with family and friends. Both the girls had a wonderful time. We also had Auntie Maxine come to stay for a few days and had a new baby arrive in the family – my great-nephew Ethan who was born the day before Sophie’s birthday.
Here’s a summary of how this week has been:
Out and About:
Jessica and Sophie enjoyed an afternoon at the park on Sophie’s birthday and have been out for walks with Auntie Maxine. We also went to a Halloween messy play session where Jessica had a wonderful time playing with murky water and bowls of string in paint and Sophie enjoyed trying to eat glitter.
Fun at home:
Sophie’s birthday means that the girls have been having lots of fun with new toys! We’re still working through opening all the presents Sophie received for her birthday but the girls are particularly enjoying playing with the Ninky Nonk musical activity train and the train set (although Sophie enjoys mostly taking the tracks apart as fast as Mummy is trying to set it up!) We spotted Sophie’s card on CBeebies on the wall behind the presenters but didn’t hear it being read out – nice to see it on screen though!
Time for me:
I had a couple of hours to myself at home whilst Auntie Maxine took the girls for a walk. It was mostly spent working on the church magazine and getting it off to be printed but at least it made it easier to get it done!
My happiest moment:
Being with all my family and celebrating Sophie’s birthday at her birthday party.
