I got a nice balloon on Saturday and a flag I could dance round. I didn't get face paint like Anna and Léon, I hope I get one next year.

Face paint

On Saturday daddy took us to a fun day in Edinburgh with flags and face paint and a castle. We got to go on a bus. It was great fun and I think the others enjoyed it too.

Aaah - there's nothing like a nice roll in honey with pork sausages for lunch, but of course you can't eat it without your hat on!


'Baby Treena'

I got to hold my new little cousin for the first time today. I was a bit annoyed mummy forgot her camera so could only take photos with her mobile phone, which is really quite rubbish.

On my bike

I asked mummy to film me cycling on my pink bike so Farmor and Großvater could see how good I am getting at it. I think I am not bad at cycling for a girl who is only four!

I found out today that if you sit on a wasp, it stings the back of your leg :-(

Nothing is yummier than a piece in blueberry jam in the sun first thing in the morning.

Today was my big wee cousin's birthday. I liked his cake very much!


My sister

This is me on my big sister. She is called Cha-ta and I love her very much. She makes me laugh.

It's so pretty here with all the pink flowers and trees and Mummy took me and the guys up the Eiffel Tower too - it was really high!
When I was at the very top I needed the toilet so I went to the toilet there. I wonder where my poo went?

Here's a nice photo of me with my big brother. He loves me very much!

I'm pretending this cup cake is my nose! I think I'm very funny sometimes!



Paddling pool in March!

Today mummy brought a big bath of water out for us to play in the garden. It was great fun!

We found these really interesting books on mummy and daddy's bed yesterday. They make fascinating reading!

It's been a funny week. Farmor made us all these sticks with ribbons on and we got to beat up a barrel till sweeties fell out. Léon and Anna even got to wear dressing-up clothes, though I didn't want to. Then we got jammy buns that daddy made. None of the other kids who lived nearby were doing anything that odd but it was kind of fun all the same.



Pizza by PhylB

Tonight I had pizza for dinner. I am not sure why adults insist on giving you that weird bread bit on the bottom. It is obvious from the taste that it is much nicer just to eat the cheese, mushrooms and sausage off the top before moving on to the next slice. I had about 6 slices tonight - everyone else only managed about 3... I wonder why!

I really love olives and so do all my brothers and sisters :-)


Sore nose

This is where my nose hurts.

I decided to climb on the toilet to wash my hands after I had done a peepee because I thought I was big enough to reach the taps by myself... apparently I am not as big as I thought!


Daddy's birthday

We had lots of candles for daddy's birthday. I taught myself how to fuff them. I got very good at fuffing them!

Oh Oh! Looks like Amaia's about to be in trouble again! Isn't that daddy's dental floss she's unravelled all over the bathroom floor?

No more microwave games

Why doesn't mummy want me to play with the microwave? It is so much fun!


Making marmalade

Daddy taught us three to make marmalade the other day. We juiced lots of oranges for him and cooked it with skin and all sorts of stuff till it was ready to put in jars. We then put some on toast. It was yucky and bitter - why would you want to make jam that wasn't sweet? All the adults seem to like it though - I think adults are weird.

Me with some of the Barbapapas

Mum took this photo of me yesterday. How does she do that? They're all coloured in but I'm all grey. I asked her, but she says it is magic!


Mummy and daddy are up to something. They have bought me something they call big girl pants and taken my nappies off me. The first time I peeed, it ran right through the pants so the next time I needed a pee I had to go to the bother of getting the potty out of the bathroom, taking it through to the bedroom so I could sit in front of the big mirror, for something to do and peeing in that instead. It seems to be what they were after though because as soon as I did that everyone was jumping up and down telling me how clever I was.


Jammy crêpes

I was very pleased with my breakfast on Sunday morning - I managed to spread my own jam on the crêpes daddy made me because I am such a big girl now.

I like making tea and eggs for the Barbapapas when they come to breakfast.

There's no better way to start the day than with a nice cappuccino made by Daddy using that nice new coffee machine Farmor and Großvater bought us :-)
