25 months old

Another weekend and another birthday party, this time Ellie turns 2!



Of course you had to sit next to the birthday girl!



Looking good out in the garden!



You love playing with water and your water table! Although you often soak yourself and I spend the whole time saying "don't drink the water" not that you listen!






 
Your sleeping has improved so much these last few months. You sleep 730-730 everyday and I have to get you up some days! You are still napping and are taking epic 2/2.5hr naps which I love! 



You love playing in the garden everyday - not sure what we will do when winter comes this year as you have so much fun charging about!


 You now like to drink out of a proper cup despite spilling it everywhere! You are improving but mummy prefers it when you practise in the garden as there is less mess to clear up!



You are keep to be involved with nerys and love helping to pick her clothes and dress her! You have started trying to pick her up which is scary for mummy - thankfully we have managed to stop you so far!

Taking nerys On first trip to nanas



We haven't been to nanas in 3 months and it was pure joy on your face when you arrived as you went exploring very quickly and realised there was lots to see and do in nanas and grandads bug house! 
You were up the stairs at one point before we even realised you were missing and I found you up out on grandads balcony! 





You were very excited about the hot tub so mummy got in and you got your swimsuit on and then decided it wasn't for you. 
You did however love the "tunnel" round the back of the house and I lost count of how many times you took nana round it! 





You loved helping in the garden! 



And shucking peas for dinner 



Think half of them made it to the bowl! 



We went to see great nana Joan she was so happy to see you both!







You had nana fly swatting for all our trip regularly shouting for her everytime you saw one 












Yeah u thought playing with the hose was great fun and soaked yourself! 







Nana showed you how to eat cherries. You loved them!





You had two trips to the beach. Both of which you thought were amazing 








 
You spent ages shifting stones from one bucket to the other. 






I hate leaving nana and grandads as we always have so much fun and I know how much you love the special times we share with them however it wouldn't be special if we never left and I think nana and grandad need the rest as Carys days are tiring! Ask your mummy! 

Carys birthday


We had a party for you at the local church hall. 
Aunty Kelly made you this fab cake! 




We hired Lisa from your dance class to come and entertain you all for an hour. You had the best time!!











Nana and grandad came to your party and stayed for the day. Aunty Kelly stayed all weekend and took you swimming with daddy on Sunday. 





As it was Father's Day daddy had dinner with you. 😂



You had great fun opening all your presents on your birthday. Aunty Kelly took the day off and 




We took you to a splash park as it was 28 degrees. 







You thought it was brilliant but after an hour you were shivering. Not sure how as we were all melting. We stripped you off and gave you some lunch and then in the afternoon you had a trip to the park with daddy and we treated you to dinner out.
