Holly smokes has it been a while since I last updated everyone... This will have to be just a long one I guess. This edition will include a visit from Nanna and Grandpa Thornton, a Trip to Disney World with my cousins and a bunch of stuff about me and how I am going lately - So here we go!!!
In January we had Mummy's big 30th birthday bash! Jenn and Ted supplied the venue and I kept it a secret with Daddy. There were lots of people there to celebrate and I think Mummy had a very good time. She even got the present she really wanted - an Apple iPad which I like playing with too!
In February Nanna and Grandpa came to visit. They were here for a week and we kept it pretty low key around the house but it was great to finally meet them. I pretty much smiled and played with them both as much as I could before they had to leave. I also got my first tooth in February - It is one of the bottom ones but now I have 2 on the bottom and probably have a few on the top about to break through soon.
One of the big achievements in February was that I started on solid foods... Mummy started me on rice cereal which I wasn't too sure off but I slowly got the hang of it. I now eat like I have a hollow leg and have and have started pretty much every vegetable and I even tried ground chicken. Mummy has to mix the chicken in with other stuff to mask the texture because I do not like it - I know she does it but I just play the game!
In March I continued to grow, eat more, and making more noises. We also went on our first family trip to Orlando Florida. It was my first plan ride and Mummy and Daddy said that I did very well on the planes. In fact I even got compliments from other passengers on the plane. I got to meet my Great Auntie Jen and Laurie and my Cousins Ava and Kate who met us there... We got to go to all the theme parks and I got to meet a lot of characters there like Mickey, Goofy and Winnie the Pooh. I even went on my first ride (It's A Small World) and I loved it so much. Then near the end of the trip I went for my first swim in the big kids pool at the hotel.
April was a month that we could just sit back and relax a little from everything that had been happening lately. I continued to grow up and make more noise, eat new foods but then I decided that I did not like sleeping through the night much - Much to the dismay of Mummy and Daddy! I have continued to go to Rhyme Time on Tuesdays and Playgroup on Wednesdays and have recently started swimming lessons at the local dive shop... We go once a week on Saturday mornings - Mummy and Daddy alternate weeks with me in the pool. I even went under the water this past Saturday but I don't think I want to do that again anytime soon.
On of the big events this month was Mummy's first Mother's Day! Daddy and I went out and got Mummy a Spa Treatment certificate so she can go and relax and be pampered. It's the least we could do with everything that Mummy does for me. We also got her some flowers and a couple of cards - I think she enjoyed her relaxing day!
So now we are into May and I still have not started sleeping through the night again. Great Grandma and Grandpa and Great Auntie Llana get here next weekend for a week and then we head on our West Coast trip with Jen, Ted, Charlotte and Victoria - 3 weeks in a RV is going to be so much fun. Guess I will have to update you all after that - So until then I hope you are all well and I hope to talk to you all soon. I have added some more photos to the blog - They are all large photos too so click on them to bring up the larger image in case you want to print some.
Love to you all,Jayden xoxoxox
