We went over to Jamie's house on Friday morning to play. There were lots of his friends from his Tumble Tots class, and I was a bit shy to start with, but I soon got to know them. Ellie and Ewan came over to play in the afternoon: we all had a great time playing in my new bedroom, and everyone thought my Rocket Picture was fantastic.

I went with Dad to the Big Shop on Saturday morning: we had Toast in the Cafe! And then on the way home we went to the Park where I went on the Swings a lot. After lunch, we went out in the Car to do a few jobs: we stopped off at a Pram Shop to get a Mattress for the Baby, and then we dropped some spare bits from my Wardrobes at Ikea, and then we ended up going to Victoria Park! It was a bit busy, but it was great! We weren't really expecting to go so I had not swimming trunks, but Mum found an old pair of Shorts that did just as well. I had a lovely time splashing about with Dad:



When I got a bit cold, we went to play on the Swings. They've got some really good climbing things there, and I showed Dad how to do them all. We all had a lovely time, but I was very tired by the time we got home.

Sunday morning turned out to be very exciting: we went to the International Pool! It was great, although I was a bit worried by all the things that could spray and squirt you (I don't like getting water in my eyes). My favourite bit was the Rapids thing that pushed you round and round: I thought it was fantastic. I also wanted to go on the Big Slide, but I was a bit small (Dad went on the Blue one and said it was great). On the way out we all went in a big Hairdryer thing that blew warm air at us until we were all dry. This is great and I hope we can go again soon.

When we got home, the sun was still shining so we played in the Garden for the whole afternoon. Me and Mum had a bit of a Waterfight:


Here are some pictures from when Ma and Pa came to stay:

As Mum was in Hospital, I went to my Childminder's on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday last week. I had a lovely time as usual, but it was a bit sad on Friday because it was the last time I'll be going there (I'll be going to Nursery in September). I got a fantastic set of Noisy Trucks from her though; she knows me very well!

Mum came out of Hospital on Thursday; she was waiting for me when we got home and I was very pleased to see her. Both Mum and the Baby are fine now.

We had a quiet weekend, at least until Sunday afternoon when Ma and Pa arrived. I was very pleased to see them! It's been great having them here, as I think I've managed to have Cake every day.

Mum had to go into Hospital for a check on Monday morning, so I took Ma and Pa to two different Parks while we were waiting. We went to Heath Park first where I went on the Swings and the Curly Slide, and then we went over to Roath Park for a Cake and I did some more playing on the Swings and the Big Slide. I like going to the Park.

Went to pick Mum up, bit unusual because Mum was coming out rather than staying
Had a snooze, Ma and Pa bought some new Curtains for my room (it's been very light in the mornings and I've been getting up very early)

Mum took me to help clean the toys at Tots on Tuesday morning. I think this is better than normal Tots because it's a lot quieter (just me and some of my friends), and you can get the good toys all to yourself. The other Mums made Mum sit down on a chair for the whole things, but we were all a bit excited and were charging around the place being Giddy Kippers. However, it all ended in tears when I landed badly after jumping off the Stage with Ben and my nose hit the ground first (OK, I probably shouldn't have been playinbg on the Stage anyway, but it was fun while it lasted). It hurt alot and there was quite a bit of blood as I also managed to bite my lip. I felt very sorry for myself, and I think I'm going to have a big bruise for a while.

I didn't eat much at lunchtime because my mouth hurt, but I did manage a Cake when I took Ma and Pa the Farm Shop later in the afternoon. I also spent a lot of time playing Ball with Pa in the Garden. I like playing Ball.

We potted around the house on Wednesday morning. I played with Ma in the house while Pa dn Mum went out to do some jobs. We had a lovely time making Jigsaws and reading Stories. In the afternoon, I went back to Roath Park with Ma and Pa and we went on a Rowing Boat! Pa rowed us all over the lake and right round the Lighthouse. I trailed my fingers in the water, and we nearly got stuck in the Weeds. We went to the Swings afterwards, and I had a lovely time until I managed to hurt my tummy on the slide (it was a bit hot and I went down on my front).

Mum had to go back to the Hospital again on Thursday for a check, so I took Ma and Pa to the Park by the Trains. We stopped off at the Snail Cafe on the way home (for some Cake) and then we had to go and collect Mum. Ma and Pa had to go home after lunch: it's been great to have them here and we all want to say a big thank you for looking after me and Mum so well and for doing loads of things around the house.

It turned into a lovely day, so we spent the rest of the afternoon in the Garden with three of my favourite things: the Paddling Pool, The Hosepipe and the Squirt-Squirt. Aunty Aimee came round to talk to Mum but I was very happy playing. I had a lovely time!.

It's been another set of exciting days! Mum had to stay home on Thursday and Friday, so Dad took me to my Childminders. I had a lovely time as normal.

Saturday started out pretty normally: after we got up we went to the Big Shop and bought lots of food. But after that, we went to the Station to meet Aunty Ceri! We got there a bit early, but I didn't mind because I got to watch the trains coming and going. I was very pleased to see Aunty Ceri: she's very funny!

After we'd collected her, we headed down to the Bay to get some food from my favourite restaurant (and yes, I had lots of Pasta again). We went for a bit of a wander around after that: there was a big Food Festival going on and there were lots of people in Tents selling Beer. We went home after that, and then I helped Dad NooNoo the Lawn while Aunty Ceri went to the Shop for some Paint. When she got back, she started Drawing and Painting a Rocket on the wall in my bedroom! It was very exciting! I wanted to help paint too:



I think the finished Rocket looks fantastic. Aunty Ceri is very clever!



We didn't do much on Sunday morning as it was quite late by the time everyone was up and dressed. After lunch, we went to the Pumping Station for a look around. I liked running round all the corridors and up and down the stairs, but there was lots of stuff there and I found it very hard to Look with my Eyes and not with my Hands, like Dad kept on telling me. We went on to Penarth after that, and ended up at the Playground at the top of the Cliffs. There was a Summer Fair going on there which had free Cake and a Bouncy Castle and lots of Pirates, so it was great fun.

When we got home, Aunty Ceri did some more painting on my Rocket and then we moved everything from my old room into the new one. I think it looks great:



I took Aunty Ceri to Gym Tots on Monday morning. We also took Aunty Aimee and Bella too, which was a bit of a squeeze but we all had a great time. Aunty Ceri and Aunty Aimee spent a lot of time on the Jumpaline (it was very funny), and Aunty Ceri got stuck Upside Down on the Parallel Bars! We came home for Lunch because the Midwife wanted to see Mum and the Baby.

In the afternoon, Aunty Ceri read me lots of stories (and I had a little sleep) and then Aunty Cheryl came round to play. We ended up playing in the Garden and we all had lots of fun.



Today was the Tots Party. I woke Aunty Ceri up with a new Squirt-Squirt I got from Grandma (She wasn't very pleased, but I thought it was funny). Mum had to do some Resting so I took Aunty Ceri and it was fab. There was a Bouncy Castle and I had lots of yummy Party Food and we all had a great time. After lunch, we saw the Midwife again and then we had to take Mum to the Hospital so that the Doctors could look at her and the Baby. I wasn't sure about Aunty Ceri driving the car on the way back, but we got home without mishap. Dad arrived shortly after that and then we all set off in the car to take Aunty Ceri to the Station. There were lots of Trains at the Station and it was very exciting. I was a bit sad to see her go though, as I've really enjoyed having her around.

After leaving the Station, Dad took me to my last Swimming Lesson (they start again in September). I had a great time splashing about, but the water was very cold and we didn't stay long to play after the lesson because I started to go blue (the Wave Machine was fun though). After that, we went home briefly to get some things for Mum and then we went to see Mum in Hospital. I spent several happy minutes playing with the bed (it goes Up and Down!) and then Mum found CBeebies on the Little TV by her bed, so I watched that too. I was very tired by the end of the day. I hope Mum comes home tomorrow.

Aunty Cheryl took me to Gym Tots on Monday morning because Mum and Dad had to go Scan the Baby. We picked up Bella on the way there and we all had a great time. I had a surprise present from Bella: they'd found some DVDs of "Classic Tractors" in a garden centre and had thought of me straight away! (They obviously know me very well). I was watching them with Aunty Cheryl when Dad arrived, but Mum wasn't there! She'd been made to stay in Hospital because her Blood Pressure was too high.

After lunch, Dad took me to see Mum in the Hospital. She had a great bed that went Up and Down when you pressed some buttons (I did a lot of pressing buttons at the Hospital). She seemed fine, and everyone said the Baby was fine too. Dad took me to Heath Park on the way home and we had a great time playing on the swings until it started to rain. We played for a bit longer and then it started to rain even more, so we had to give up and go home. It rained Really Hard when we got back to the car, and it rained so much on the way home that Dad had to stop because he couldn't see to drive!

I was a bit sad without my Mum: I kept asking "Where Mum gone?" and Dad had to keep reminding me that she was in the Hospital. I talked to her on the phone just before bedtime and that made things much better.

I usually jump on Mum and Dad's bed until they get up in the morning. But on Tuesday, I came into their room and then went off to try and find Mum before Dad caught up with me. After that, I showed Dad how to do all the things we normally do on a Tuesday: we went to Tots in the morning, where I had a lovely time playing and eating Toast and doing some colouring for Mum. After lunch we went to see Mum in Hospital for a bit (she liked the picture I made for her) and we stayed until it was time to go to my Swimming Lesson.

I had a lovely time swimming, at least until I ended up swallowing some water and then I got a bit cold. When we got back me and Dad played with my Marble Go Down and it was great.

Dad looked after me again today. We went to Cafe Junior in the morning for Monkey Music, which was lovely (it was very wet through). I had my customary Yummy Cake when we got there, and I really enjoyed Monkey Music (Dad enjoyed it too, although I had to help him with the words and the actions). After lunch, we played in the house for a bit (and I had a little nap) and then we went to pick Mum up: she was coming home! I was very pleased to see her and gave her a big hug when we arrived. I was happy that the Baby was fine too. I talked at her all the way home, and then I played with Mum and Dad for the rest of the afternoon. I like having my Mum back.

It's been another busy few days! I went to my lovely Childminder's on Thursday, but Mum and Dad came to get me early because we were going to my Nursery. It was great: there were loads of toys and things to play with inside, and there were loads of fun thing outside too. My teacher is lovely as well. I'll be going with my friend Becca in September, and I can't wait!

I went to my lovely Childminder's again on Friday, but Mum had to come and get me early because I had a sore throat and it wouldn't stop hurting. I had some medicine, and by the time Mum arrived I was feeling much better. We went home and watched "Monsters Inc", but I was very busy and I couldn't sit still at all.

In fact, I couldn't sit still for the whole weekend. Mum and Dad couldn't work out if I was very tired or if I was just full of energy; I think they were a bit worn out by the end! I went out with Dad to the Big Shop in the morning, and then me and Mum went to the Rhiwbina Festival. We had lots of fun: I found some toy cars and a really cool Crane with working parts, and then we went on a Roundabout that looked like a Train.

When we got back, Dad had started making the Wardrobes that arrived from Ikea on Tuesday, and we spent the rest of the day helping him. The new Wardrobes are really big: me and Dad can both get inside them! I was very busy while I was helping: I played with Dad's tools and made Robots with all the bits of wood and generally had a great time.

Me and Mum went to Church on Sunday morning which was lots of fun. After lunch, we played in the house for a bit and then we went to the Cinema with Alex and Nate. We saw Kumg Fu Panda and it was fab! I loved it, and I thought it was very funny (even though some of the time I was laughing all by myself). We stopped for a Cake and Drink on the way home. I was very tired, and very busy when we got home.

Monday was really busy! We went to Gym Tots on Monday morning, and we all had a great time charging around. I did lots of bouncing. Then we were persuaded to go for a Picnic in Victoria Park, which was fabulous. There was loads of things to play on, including lots of climbing walls and things: I'd like to take Dad there sometime!

After that, Mum had to go see the Midwife, where I helped listen to the baby. Then we went to a shop to buy a Rocket Duvet Cover for my new room, and after that we went round to Ewan's house to play! Phew! I was really tired by the end of the day.

Early on Tuesday morning, a Big Lorry arrived:



Some men carried lots of boxes into the house and it was very exciting! After breakfast, we went to Tots where I found out that it's not allowed to take toys from smaller children... We went to my Swimming lesson after lunch and we had a lovely time; I learnt how to swim on my back.

We went to Cafe Junior for one of my favourite activities this morning: Monkey Music!



Afterwards, we stopped at the Big Shop to get a Duvet. After lunch, we went round to Jamie's house to play, but it started to rain really heavily on the way there and Mum got so wet that she had to borrow some of Jamie's Mum's clothes!
