But this year, her second, was wonderful. It was still hard work, but now that she's 17 months old, it was absolutely wonderful to see her enjoying the whole experience! She's talking so much and repeating everything we say - occasionally she's even starting to put words together. She's walking and running everywhere and she learned to dance at the ceilidhs in the Anchor Inn.
|She does like the quiet book I made her!|
|Early morning bacon butty stop - it was still far too early|
|With Granny on the sea-front|
|With Grandad the Morris Dancer (she wasn't scared of Morris Men this |
year, which is just as well, really)
|Looking up the good concerts with Dolly|
|Dancing on the table (thanks Uncle Robin)|
She loved watching the waves crash, but wasn't quite as keen when the wind whipped up the waves so much that even on the opposite side of the road, we got splashed. She also loved the seagulls - some one has to. And coronation chicken sandwiches were a huge hit!
We also visited Wrest Park, a stately home near my parents, and she loved running and playing hide and seek
