31 – 52

A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014.

After a beautifully warm start to the week, it has ended freezing cold! We headed down to the park today to sit in the sun and get some fresh air. The girls walked the dogs, much to the dogs' dismay and went down the slide umpteen times!

Mahlia: Talk of starting primary school next years not going down too well with Mahlia. She loves her Montessori preschool so much and desperately wants to stay there, to the point where she said she will stay and be one of the teachers! As parents, we are in denial about her starting school next year, and have not decided where to send her. Ideally, we'd like her to go to a Montessori Primary but there isn't that option on the coast. Hubby is dropping the home-school idea a lot! Decisions, decisions!

Leila: She saw the ENT doctor this week and I was so proud of her. She was so nervous, if her tongue wasn't sticking out, her fingers were in her mouth. After passing her hearing test with flying colours, we now know for sure that she is just being defiant, and there are no hearing problems. She's very excited about the prospect of her first long day at preschool next week. I am excited about one less car trip there!

Archer: Two top teeth are emerging, so he's been joining me in bed a lot earlier in the night this week. He's also learnt to clap this week too, and is very proud of himself! He joins in when we sing 'If You're Happy and You Know It', and story time at the library with Leila he brought a smile to everyone's face when he joined in. Gorgeous, he's just gorgeous.
