Another Birthday....

This time 4 years ago a had a sweet new bubba in my arms! It has gone soooo fast's a blur. To be honest Poppy wasn't the easiest of toddlers - very "spirited". Her endless energy, tendency to run EVERYWHERE, constant talking and overly strong will tested me along the way! But the traits that sometime drive me crazy are the traits we value so much in adults - strong willed, confidence, social, energetic! So I embrace this gorgeous girl and her high spirited ways! She is unique and fun! She is our special first born! And we love her to bits!
She had a little party yesterday with some special friends. I made her a tinkerbell cake which I was pretty pleased with as a first attempt! She loved her new big girls bike from us - aswell as some books, memory game, Tinkerbell doll and costume. Dh's family all put in and bought her the Tinkerbell Cafe kitchen - what a hit! She received bathers, jewellery box, charms, and funky hat! Alround a fabulous range of pressies!
At Four -
She loves
  • Outside play

  • Bathtime

  • swimming lessons

  • Going the park

  • Hot chips

  • Singing and dancing around the house

  • Playing with Lola

  • Story at bedtime

  • Drawing

  • Long, swirly dresses

  • dressing herself

  • Her doll's house

  • Trampoline

  • To answer the phone - "hello Poppy Corbett speaking"

  • Finding treats in her Nanny's handbag

  • To wake up at 5.30am - I'm not loving this one!

  • She can write her name

  • she loves affection

  • She loves playing with her friends and older cousins

  • She will eat most things but only tiny amounts

So that's both birthday's done and dusted - now looking ahead to Christmas! Eeeeek - we're having it here at our place this year!!!!
