The birthday girl gets a tricycle





(This photo shows the quilt my sister and friends made me as a secret wedding present)
Well, my little girl is now three! Hard to believe. It feels like the end of my "baby" era as there ain't going to be no more babies! G seems much more babyish at three than my big girl did. We don't know if it's because we have "babied" G more or whether it's just her personality. But she is definitely seeming more like a big girl now and certainly has a mind of her own! We have a lot of fun asking her questions and cracking up at her answers. You have to be careful what you ask though - Scott's family asked her yesterday "Do you love Mummy?". "Sometimes" she replied. We also asked her this week "What do you want to be when you grow up?". Usually she says "A daddy" (!!!) but the other day she said "A grown up". Maybe it was a dumb question.

I haven't downloaded any photos from her birthday yet (which she spent in some pain from a middle ear infection requiring an early morning visit from the after hours doctor, some antibiotics and an afternoon visit to the doctor as she was in heaps of pain despite copious amounts of panadol and nurofen - which I very rarely give).But here are some photos from earlier in the week when we set off to Grandma and Grandad's to receive a beautiful red and cream tricycle for the birthday girl. Happy Birthday Curly Whirl!!

Oh I love her outfit! And I have to tell you, my own little girl seems so much more babyish than my big one at the same age... who knows why that is! We just moved her to a little cot (no more crib bars!) and i thought she was so small for that... until I remembered that Big J was the same age when we did that, and we thought she was big enough...

I had the biggest battle to get Greta into a good dress and good shoes to go to Grandma's! I had to threaten, bribe, you name it. But, Tammie...she loves those stripey tights. She thinks they can be worn without a skirt on top which is a kind of funny look.

Hi, just came across your blog and have enjoyed my visit, thankyou! Your girls are such sweeties and I love the shot of your older one helping with the new trike. Yes it's hard when your baby turns 3, mine is about to turn 4 (although according to her she has been 6 for about 2 years!). Take care, x
