On Saturday, we went to see a very old friend of mine, whose children (ages 6 and 3) had not yet met Little Miss A. They were apparently so excited, that my friend had a really hard time keeping them calm before we arrived! Her daughter had laid the table all by herself, including a little table just for Little Miss A, complete with plate, bowl, cup, fork & spoon, and a napkin! So cute!
Doesn't she just look like she's planning her next bit of mischief? Mr A's reaction upon seeing this picture was just to say 'Oh oh.....'
Also, for some reason, she has started pulling this funny face every time a camera is pointed in her direction - don't ask me why, but it is VERY funny - especially when combined with pigtails
On Sunday, the weather was still stunning, so we all went off to this wonderful forest where you can walk and enjoy nature in all it's beauty. It's obviously been colder there than in London, as there was loads more leaves on the ground - a great excuse for Little Miss A to have some fun
So yes, a good time was had by all, although I am rather knackered - travelling alone with a toddler (aka Duracell Bunny) is not something to be taken on lightly!
Oh and before I forget, we've had LOADS of new words recently. These include:
- apple (pronounced abble)
- taxi (we took quite a few over the weekend!)
- nana (banana)
And then this evening, when I was getting her ready for bed, she was asking for Grandma ('gamma'). I told her that Grandma was in Brussels - and got 'bubble'! This will particularly please a very good friend of ours who, as a result of marrying a Greek man, is known as 'Auntie Bubble' (i.e. bubble and squeak = Greek - Mr A has a great love of Cockney rhyming slang......)
