I am so embarrassed to see how out of date this blog suddenly is that I thought I should add a note… someone suggested to me that I added so many posts while in my previous role that I must have had way too much time on my hands, and, while true, it was because I wiled away so much of my time on planes that I was able to add plenty of posts, rather than because I was work-shy!
So, down to that update… The girls are great, as always:
Ivy is walking really well, up on her feet more often than she crawls, although she’s doing a fair bit of bashing into things; mainly she’s walking into things because she’s looking at whoever is watching her rather than concentrating on where she’s going, and she’s busy flashing a grin, or pretending to be on the phone, or most stupefying of all, walking with her hands behind her head, like she’s relaxing on a beach, showing off her new-found walking skills… It is pretty cute, even if a bit stupid. She’s also saying Ta pretty well, we were worried for a while that her first word was “goat” although even if true we’re going to ignore it! Ta is good enough for us… Since it’s father’s day on Sunday maybe she’ll learn to say Daddy?
Scarlett is also on great form, she seems to know everything, which I expect will be the case until she’s at least 21? Nothing gets past her, especially if Diana or I are trying to sneak a bit of chocolate 🙂 She’s getting good a gymnastics, at least, she can tumble pretty well, and her doggy paddle is coming along after only two years of swimming lessons! She is the most beautiful, loving, precious little princess and she’s getting better, and funnier, and cuter, and lovelier, even if her few years means that she can also be REALLY painful!
Pictures or videos soon, I promise.
