Daddy decided yesterday it was time I touched a tarantula. I'm not sure why, given I have already told him butterflies and ants are yucky and scary. Pudge and Marcel and Lots and even Amaia touched the tarantula, and I looked at it but I didn't touch it. It was just too hairy. Daddy says he's going to bring me back next year to touch it again. I can hardly wait :-(

A trip to the seaside

Pudge asked to go to the beach on Sunday. I have been to the beach before but not since last summer so I didn't remember what the beach was. Pudge said the beach was good fun. We got there after a drive and it was beautiful. I walked down to it and onto the sand. The sand moved!!! I stopped. I couldn't possibly be expected to walk on this dangerous surface, surely? Mummy told me it would be better if I took off my shoes, so I did but it still moved! I started to cry Carry me, carry me! Mummy refused despite the fact that she was only carrying 4 buckets, 3 spades, a bottle of water and a picnic rug... oh and my sandals - how unreasonable is that?! I walked on crying till daddy came back and picked me up.
He sat me on the sand and I had some fun putting sand in a bucket. Well, I think it was fun but my hands were all dirty after a while so I started to cry again. Daddy told me he'd wash them so he dipped them in some water he found at the edge of the sand - the water was huge and scary so I started to cry again.
The guys all told me all the way home that I'd had fun at the beach but I'm not so sure. The beach seemed quite scary, if you ask me :-(

Pink handbags

Auntie Amanda gave me her old pink handbag. It is the most beautiful bag I've ever seen. I have put some toys in it. Mummy says she knows just the car I should buy to go with it. She saw it at ASDA last night. Mummy also says she thinks I might be Prime Minister one day because she says I remind her a bit of Margaret Thatcher when I walk about holding my pretty bag. Mummy looks a bit worried when she says this and asks me to promise I won't be a Tory Prime Minister - whatever that is!

Daddy and me

Mummy says she thinks I look like daddy. I think she means especially the shape of our faces, our similar eye colour and possibly also our hair... though I don't have hair on my face like he does!

Mummy was very pleased with me today. She came in to find me lying under my baby gym, 180 degrees turned from where she'd left me just five minutes earlier. Daddy muttered something about not leaving me alone on the nappy changing station any more. I wonder why?

Sitting alone

Mummy has been trying to teach me to sit this week. I don't really want to sit - I much prefer standing up. Mummy gets annoyed when I don't want to bend and push up on my feet so I try occasionally just to humour her!

Pink trees

About a week ago I woke up to find that many of the trees around my house had grown pink fluffy bits. I think they look especially pretty. Mummy says this one in our garden is my very own pink fluffy tree. It is so beautiful.
