*^*^*^*^*^* Misletoe and Wine *^*^*^*^*^*


I'm actually going to sit and think about what I'm going to write here because it's been a long time since I wrote a decent entry.

So here goes:

Today me and Ava started Gymboree classes, which are A LOT of fun! I was a total dumb a$$ and figured I'd carry her in the sling, by the time we got there I was shattered and then I had to run around after her for half an hour "don't grab peoples eyes", "don't climb on that baby." "Stop staring at that man." "ahhhhhhhh!" I'm sure all the posh west-end mum's thought I was scum with my naughty offspring!
Are you enjoying the christmas feel to my typing :)

Anyhow after all that Ava really did enjoy herself, she loved the parachute and the bubbles. So I enrolled her for the course and I think she's gonna love it! I dunno part of me feels like since I'm such a young mum I have to prove myself by being the most amazing mother in the entire world. So we have a busy schedual playgroup 3 x a week, Gymboree and soft play. Hopefully it'll teach her how to act around other kids and she wont turn into a total bully! Who am I kidding, I love it!
My dear dear friend Jessi made me this ornament isn't it beautiful! And she baked me the most amazing cookies, it was really cool to try the American cookies that everyone talks about like "Thin Mints" and "Russian Teacakes". She also sent me tonnes of hershey bars and peanut butter cups, now I just have to persuade her (& her husband and 5 kids) to move to Scotland and she can bake for me everyday!

I am spending the evening writing christmas cards, maybe I should put on some christmas music. I already have a hot chocolate in hand :)

My tree is tiny this year and possitioned on top of the record player as "Grabby hands M'gee"/"Destructour" is a hazard to herself! But it's pretty and safe so thats all that matters!

I wish I had something witty to say but ...... I'm tired, so after these cards are done, it's bedtime.

Finally since I know at least one person reads this..... MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Ava is turning one!

So my little baby is a toddler now! I'm sad that she is so independent but so proud as well, very much mixed emotions!
She has taken her first steps, spoken her first words and had her first tantrums. She's made me happy, sad and occasionally mad. She's evolved from a little grub to a little person.
She's the best thing that's ever happened to me and I'm so looking forward to watching her grow :)

Back online!

No news from our new residence. Were enjoying the new place albeit without broadband :( Mum and Phil were over for the weekend which was fun but now I am craving cakes every minute of the day, Phil buys a lot of cakes :)

Ava is teething again I think she is a cranky pants. And she's into everything now she can pull up so well I feel like she's constantly gaining a new bruise from bumping into everything. But she's happy and that's all that matters really :)

We are Mobile...Aaaahhhhhhh!

The little horror is mobile. She can crawl, pull herself up into sitting position and wave. My oh my!
And she is starting to pull herself up on furniture, she loves to walk around holding your hands.... seriously she is going to be walking soon and that terrifies me.

Anyway as a result of this new found mobility we are getting into A lot of trouble. Why is it that her favorite thing happens to be the most dangerous thing in the house? Electricity cables! Remind me why I bought her toys at all, what could be more fun than an ipod cable, a digita
l camera, a phone or a hairbrush? On Friday my friend Greig comes over so I'm texting him directions for oh about 30 seconds I look up and she is covered head to toe in sudocreme. God only knows how much she ate! I googled it to check it wasn't poison and she was fine!

To add to that excitement she had her first ride in a shopping trolley! I think she quite liked it, my only problem was stopping her chewing the dirty old handle.... bleah!

Speaking of bleah, I ate a chocolate cake out of a brand new pack of 4 mini cakes yesterday. After devouring the entire thing Doug notices the other 3 are green and furry with mould and 11 days out of date...... yuk! I feel sick thinking about it but thankfully I haven't been.

Anyhow she is trying to play with a plastic bag so I better be off :)
