Darling little girl, we have already had 2 very busy days this week, and it is only Tuesday! Yesterday we went to the Argory with T&L, F&C and L&C to do the Snowdrop Walk. It was absolutely beautiful, even if I did spend a lot of time sprinting after you as you decided to make your way off in the direction of the stream, or the steps, or the kitten in the tree, or the big bush. Everything is a new challenge, and you are growing into a worryingly fearless little person. When you were smaller if I was having difficulty getting you to move, or leave something alone in a shop, if I announced 'OK, Mummy is leaving now...' and pretended to turn for home you would very quickly have a rethink and hurry alongside me again. Now, you don't even look over your shoulder to see whether I meant it - beware the Mummy who Cries Wolf too many times and the little person who calls her bluff at 23 months!!
Today we had Jo Jingles and a trip up to Carrick to see Nanna and Granda - they are coming to mind you tomorrow while we go to the hospital for our 20 week scan, to see your little brother or sister. We will bring you back a little photo for you. When asked where your baby is, you will tell people 'In Mamma's tummy' and then you add 'keep baby warm.' I can't believe that this time 2 years ago I was 5 days from my due date with you (and 21 days away from you actually arriving!)
And then I blinked and you were suddenly my big girl out for a walk in spring with the snowdrops!
It has been a very long time since I last posted. I confess that this post is driven out of embaressment, having visited the blog of a friend and realised that I have let things on my blog slide shamefully!
So much has happened since my last post that I am not sure where on earth to fill in, so I will make this short and sweet and limit myself to 5 things to get me going again and break me in gently.
1. My little girl has been poorly over the last few days, and is now starting to come around today and be a wee bit more like herself - it has taken a lot of milk, cuddles, and watching cartoons on the sitting room floor in her new 'holiday bed.'2. I have finally started to write properly after all my procrastinating and dithering. Whether what comes out in the wash is any good or not is bye-the-bye, I have at least started.
3. I have had a really wonderful end to 2009 and start to 2010 - life feels good, friends feel close (even those who are so very far away - Sara, Lisa, Lois, Becky, Elena....) and worries have been thankfully absent or manageable. We have had very little sickness this winter, and even the snowy weather we had came and went relatively quickly - just lasting long enough for Toots to get out into the garden in her wellies!
4. We will soon have to change the name of this blog to 'Toddler Kay and her new little Baby Kay.' Due to join us at the end of July is another Special K (DV...) 5. It is nice to be back x
