First, let me introduce the most important ME! I am 7 months old. I am not sure how tall I am but when I am in my pram everyone looks really, really big! Lots of people call me a little chunk but I am not sure what that means. I have a little bit of yellow hair and I have very blue eyes which I am told I will break hearts with – is that a good thing I wonder?
So, I have this very special lady in my life, my Mummy, and I like her very much! I shout her every morning when I wake up and she always picks me up. She sings songs to me, lets me play with her hair when I drink my bottle, puts toys in my bath and tells the best bedtime stories but my favourite thing about my Mummy is she brings me on very cool adventures – let me tell you about our trip to Avondale..
I was in my car seat but not for very long before we got to some really big gates with a long road up to the place where we left the car. Mummy put me in my pram and we walked up to a very big beautiful house, Mummy said it was called Avondale House, where I got my picture taken (aren’t I very cute!). Then we went to the place Mummy called the play ground. I wasn’t too sure at first but when Mummy fixed me into a hanging seat and pushed me I got the funniest feeling my tummy and laughed so hard I thought I would never stop! Look here I am relaxing after my tummy settled down and I definitely had to fight falling asleep – I certainly wasn’t going to miss anything! After, I sat on Mummy’s knee and we went really fast down the slid and so, so high on the big boy swing.
Back in my pram we went for a walk through a place with lots and lots of trees, I was watching the leaves blowing in the wind and didn’t know where to look first. I was sure I saw that fluffy guy who brought the eggs at Easter time but I can’t be sure. I could hear all the birds singing and even spotted a few which I shouted and pointed my finger at to get their attention but they don’t seem too interested in chatting to me. Finally, I looked up at the clouds floating in the big blue sky but this time I lost the battle – nap time!
When I woke up Mummy was smiling at me and took me out to sit on a blanket full of my favourite yummy food and juice. The blanket was sitting on the greenest grass which went on forever and ever and felt very soft through my fingers. I could hear a noise far away which Mummy said was someone cutting the grass – is that what the smell is because I love it? Mummy brought some of my toys and books so she read to me and we laughed a lot but it was soon time to go home, after all I am only little! Mummy packed up our stuff and while we walked back to the car she said that when I am a big boy I can run all the way to the end of the grass and go on the big boy swing on my own.
On the way home in the car I looked out the window and thought about my day. I wondered where we would go next. I can’t wait to tell you about it but for now its home for tea.
Lots of love,
Mummy & Me x
