school uniform

It's an everyday occurrence for some, but it's something that we never thought we would see. So, I'd like to share: Ayla's first day in her school uniform. Ofcourse, after all the fun she's been having at nursery it will never be the same. But for that first day it was all spic and span!

wishing you a happy week whatever you are up to

She's 3

How did that happen? They told us 3 days, now we are 3 years.....

Well it's been a mix of trust in our child, bumbling blindly along and a healthy dose of prayers. That is what has got us to where we are now.

I'm not updating the blog as often as I would like. I was hoping for at least a monthly update, but you know how it goes with best laid plans and all....

July was a month of

  • splashing in hot tubs
  • my nephew trying to hypnotise Ayla into saying her first words LOL
  • visiting friends and family
  • lazing in paddling pools in the back garden
August was a month of
  • rolling onto tummies
  • brushing teeth (finally without gagging)
  • visiting another family who are travelling this road with trisomy 18
  • Garden parties with RNSO
  • turning 3
  • starting nursery
September so far: 
  • school photo
  • visit to the safari park
  • baking cakes with classmates
  • discovering the gigglebellies videos
quite frankly ayla is rocking being 3. She has developed a few new tricks, but more of that in another post.
