Baby is getting much bigger now. Daddy felt baby kick for the first time the other day. I tried to get you sit still long enough to feel the kicks but you weren't patient enough. You are convinced you are having a baby sister! The day after we got back from holiday you came with me for my 20 week scan and you sat and held my hand whilst the sonographer took pictures of the baby in mummy's tummy. You even sat still for 10 minutes to watch!
We're currently on the hunt for a new sporty activity to do for the winter term as your last few swim lessons you have cried the entire time as you said the pool is too cold. So me and dad took you for a trial class of Tae Kwon Do. It seemed to be right up your alley with all the shouting, kicking and punching. You seemed to enjoy it for about half an hour but then you got shy and hid behind me. You watched whilst all the other kids were doing their practise for grading. When the room went silent you piped up 'when's it my turn' so the sensei called you up the front and made you do the horse riding stance whilst you punched and yelled 'huyah'. You walked back proud as punch.
Swimming lessons have been a bit of a dis-appointment this year. Your new teacher has struggled a bit with 4 of you in the class - especially now that you and Ben are in a class together. You just seem to mess about and jump off the platform and try and drown yourself.
We're having a very mild winter at the moment. The weather has been cold in the mornings but beautiful sunshine during the day. We have had one or two cold days giving us the opportunity to try our your new beanie and scarf nana knitted. Plus your lovely new coat that nana and grandad bought. Even though you told everyone at school that daddy bought if for you when you were on holiday (mummy forgot you had show and tell at school that day so you showed off your new coat instead and told everyone daddy bought it).
We've had a busy few weekends lately searching for a place to live temporarily. Me and daddy are excited to be moving into our new place next weekend - it even has a pool which I know you're going to love in the summer months!
