Well we all love the fact that you have nicknamed the baby 'joggle' and it seems to have stuck. Now everyone is calling baby joggle. You were very cute the other day when you were lying on mummy's tummy and talking to sam. All of a sudden you jumped up and said to Sam 'I can hear it, it's talking to me,' when sammy asked you what Joggle had said you replied 'I love you'. You have promised me that when baby is born you are going to look after them for me.

You are so helpful when we go to my antenatal appointments, you help the midwife to measure mummy's tummy then you hand her the gel which she squirts on my tummy and you hold the Doppler whilst we listen for baby's heartbeat. You seem to really enjoy playing nurse!
You and daddy practising your dirty dancing moves!
You really have some attitude now kid, if I thought 2 was a challenge I didn't know what I was letting myself in for with 3... Sometimes you are cute and cheeky when you want to get your own way, when I tell you we can't do something and you will screw your nose up and reply 'lets have a try mum'. Or 'puuurrrrleaase mum'. Then there are other times when you scream at the top of your lungs or repeat things seven million times until I feel like I am going insane!

You love playing tea parties with all your toys and will sit for ages talking to them all and telling us stories. You have a lovely imagination and I love to listen to you talking to them. You are especially cute in the bath where you have lots of plastic toys. Unfortunately this makes it very difficult to get you out of the bath as you live to sit there till the water turns stone cold.
You were really missing your little friend Lottie who we don't get to see much anymore as she is in daycare 5 days a week. So, we organised a Sunday play date - we had a picnic and the two of you played for hours. She bought her frozen dolls to the park and you both had a great time singing the songs for the movie and now you want some frozen dolls too. I said you'd have to wait till Father Christmas comes. You have been singing the 'let it go' song for days since. 

You keep telling me that Lottie is your best friend, I think you need to learn how to give more gentle hugs though as you love can bit a overwhelming for some.

Our new little palace

It's hard to believe we've been living in our new abode for over a month. I love having our own little space again. I thought transitioning you into your own room again was going to be very difficult but you've actually been pretty good. You still wake up in the night sometimes more than others but most of the time you are happy if I come and give you a quick cuddle in your bed, which is much easier now that you have a big double bed.
You seem to be enjoying the new class at school, once a fortnight you have show and tell which keeps mummy scratching her head as she has to come up with new and interesting things to take in and talk about. The best one was when we made a song sheet for you of 'happy face' the song that you made up with auntie sam when we visited. Your teachers loved it and said you were so brave when you went up the front and sang it loud and clear.
You loved it the first week we were living here and we got home to a parcel from Nana which was a poncho and dad said you looked like a little lamb so you scooted around the apartment bleeding like a little lamb.
We also finally got around to Persuading daddy to let you have your first hair cut. you loved sitting in the chair next to daddy whilst he had his hair cut. We couldn't wipe the big grin off your face, you thought it was so much fun.
Mummy has been quite poorly recently so we having been getting out and about as much but we have discovered all the local shops and parks around here. One of them even has a flying fox which you think is so much fun, you even managed to convince daddy to have a go.
You are so excited that your cousins have moved back to sydney and that you get to see them lots more. We went to visit their new (old) house up on the central coast and stopped for a visit at the wildlife park. You loved following the kangaroos around and chasing the wallabies but you go a bit too close and frightened mummy and daddy a little.
You especially loved feeding the goats and there was one greedy little goat that almost ate your hand!
We do manage regular visits to play school again now though, your favourite activities are painting (or anything that involves getting very messy - like playing with goo and water) but you really seem to enjoy playing with the dollly's and the kitchen.
 You were particularly cute one week when there was a stage with puppets and you put on a whole performance for me and a few of the other mums, they thought you were hilarious when you kept pausing to say 'okay you can clap now'.
