loving sunny May

we have been loving this weather, but sunglasses are a must. Next month we'll try the swimsuit and paddling pool :-)

Annie, this one is just for you. kisses from Ayla xx

May and spring has sprung at last

To celebrate the sunshine today, our little miss sunshine got to wear her first pair of kiddie sunglasses out and about. It took us so long to buy any because part of her condition means that her ears are lower set than most kids. I honestly didn't know if they would stay on her nose, or if she would keep them on her nose.

After the success of the first pair I thought we should get a couple of pairs...for the car, the handbag, the buggy. You know how it goes, just when you need a pair out and about you realise that they are propping up a sunhat on the kitchen windowsill.

We have spent a few days in the garden so far. Easter weekend was great. We are obviously hoping for more. Today was a bonus, until the rain started and spoiled our fun.

We have been spending one hour a week at nursery to transition in before the summer holidays. It has been very interesting for both Ayla and mum... I am so glad that Ayla is not shy with strangers, it makes for a much more relaxed nursery experience.

April Showers

We managed to get out a bit more in April. We got Ayla a cute little rain jacket with daisies on it and the cutest pair of sunglasses. Hello Kitty, shaped like daisies. Ayla thought she was the bees knees when we put them on her. I was surprised, I'd expected her to try to shake them off but instead we got the cutest little crinkly nosed smile. So like a normal toddler's reaction to getting to put on sunglasses, but somehow out of the ordinary for Ayla.

We got good news about her nursery placement for August. She will be going to a special needs school for nursery. I am thrilled. I can't wait to see her progress.

I'm getting a little bit more scrapbooking done just now during her naps. I'm trying to finish off all of my works-in-progress. I have many, so even getting some finished and into albums is a good feeling.
