It has been fun to listen to how Katie's language has been developing and how she has new words everyday. A couple of months ago she started with phrases such as 'not like it', 'not want it', 'not tasty' and 'not do it'.

However, this week she came out with a classic. Nanny and Grandad have been very good at teaching Katie her Ps and Qs and so when Katie asked for "More milk", we replied with "What's the magic word?" Her reply:

Minding her manners

We are very pleased that Katie is growing up to be a polite girl. Even in her darkest moments she is still very polite.

We were getting ready to go out and trying to get Katie to put her coat on. She did not want to wear it and at the top of her voice shouted 'no thank you'.

On trying to get her to finish her dinner, she got really cross and amid the tears screamed 'no thank you'.

We can't argue with that!

Quality time with Daddy

The other morning Mummy wasn't feeling too well and so Daddy was in charge. Katie had her first experience of lazy mornings in front of the tv.

Mummy got to sleep, Daddy got to read his book, Katie was watching Thomas the Tank Engine - everyone wins!

Oh Jesus

We were a little concerned the other day when we walked into the living room to find Katie behind the chair saying over and over again 'Oh Jesus! Oh Jesus!'.

Was she praying or had she been listening to Grandad getting cross?

No, for Christmas Katie had received a wooden nativity puzzle and one of the pieces was missing - Jesus!

Definitely nature not nurture

The past few days have been very hot and so deciding what to clothe Katie in has been a little tricky. This morning we asked her would she like to wear her jeans, to which she replied - 'Hot'.

So we asked if she would like to wear her cream trousers, to which she replied - 'No'.

Now, nanny bought Katie a couple of dresses at the weekend, and so we asked would you like to wear a dress, to which she replied - 'Ooo, dress, pretty'.

She then headed towards the bedroom shouting 'Dress on, dress on' all the way. We got to the bedroom to find her pulling on the wardrobe door, so we obliged and got her dress out. She was obviously keen to wear it as she then began to put it on over her pyjamas.

Now this is definitely not something that mummy has encouraged, so where does this desire for pretty pink dresses come from?

Urgh, wassat?

Now this isn't an unusual question from Katie, she is often finding the smallest of crumbs or a passing ant and asking what it is. So today when she held her finger in my face and asked the question it was no shock.

However, on inspecting the item on the end of her finger, I was unsure of its identity and so I asked Katie where did she find it. Her reply....
