Since the first week you have been a little less reluctant to go and as mummy goes to leave you bawl your eyes out with heart wrenching sobs which makes me reluctant to leave you. Today is Halloween so they made us dress you up for school today. I managed to get you a fairy / witch costume which you seemed fairly pleased with this morning.
Gosh mummy wrote this 2 weeks ago and dint get a chance to post it. It's been a hectic few weeks. Grandma is very sick and is in hospital at the moment.
This last week hasn't been much fun for any of us unfortunately, we have all had a bout of vomiting and sickness but we seem to be over the worst of it. When mummy was being sick this week you wandered over to me whilst I was throwing up and started gently rubbing my back it was so cute having that little bit of affection.
Swimming has been a bit better. Now that mummy is getting in the pool with you, you seem a bit happier. Last week we had your photo taken under water which was fun, we should get the pics back this week.
I love your little siennaisms, at school you have a little friend called Faith which you can't pronounce and instead it comes out 'fake' and your little cousin Heston you pronounce 'peston' which I find hilarious.
You are really into dressing up lately and keep telling me you are a princess or that you look pretty. You also love playing with your dolls and yesterday you told me and daddy that you wanted a baby. You re so cute feeding, dressing and bathing your dolly and talking to her all the while.
This weekend we took you to the fair where you loved getting your face painted as a beautiful butterfly.
All in all it's been a pretty tumultuous month. You went from loving daycare that first few weeks to now being very reluctant to go. You seem to be going through a bit of a personality change at the moment and are definitely testing the boundaries. I think daycare is good for you and you are definitely learning a lot there. Just last week you kept taking yourself off to the big girl toilet and going to the toilet all by yourself which is a major win as I was starting to wonder how we would gradually ween you on to the toilet and away from the potty. Once you figured out that daycare is a permanent fixture and that you have to go every week you haven't been so keen and the mornings are heart wrenching for me, especially when I have to do the morning drop off. This has lead to you becoming very attached to mummy and you are reluctant to leave my side. Mummy now has a job which she starts next week so I hope we see some improvement soon. This 'mummy attachment' has also lead to very restless nights. I have lost count of the amount of nighttime visits we get and most of the time I am too tired to get out of bed and put you back so you end up sleeping in with us. Some nights you don't even wake me you just sneak in and I wake up in the middle of the night and find you there.
