Julia is walking all over now, and is even trying to climb! The stairs, on furniture, we’re having to keep a sharp eye on her to make sure she doesn’t come a cropper! I can not believe how much our girl has grown, how advanced she is now, every day she amazes me, I love being a mother, motherhood is wonderful, I am fulfilled. I find myself writing in my diary, trying to capture every little thing that Julia has done, no matter how small, as I know these moments are fleeting, and I want it all there, caught on the page, so that in years to come, I can look back, remember and smile. I take many photos ( and videos ) of our beautiful girl, not just posed ones, but photos of Julia playing, walking, eating, doing her every day activities, I want to catch it all, as time goes by so quick, I am still amazed that it is 14 months since our gorgeous girl was born! At this very moment I have photos of Julia printing
The photos of Julia wearing her pink t.shirt and leggings were took at my dad and Pam’s house, the t.shirt was a gift from them brought back from Majorca in the Summer, this is the first time Julia has worn it and it is still a little too big, but never mind, the writing on it made us all laugh We had a lovely time at Nanna and Grandads house,Julia exploring, climbing, walking, laughing and ‘reading’ the TV magazine lol, Julia loves any reading material, she loves to flick through the pages, we have a budding reader here!
I’ve put some photos of my Enid Blyton books here ( as mentioned in the previous post ) I used to love Enid Blyton when I was little, and was very sad when my mother gave all my books away, but now, my collection has begun again! I saw on Ebay some very good deals on Enid Blyton books, so they’re an early Christmas pressie to myself, which will bring such joy to not just myself, but Julia too, I am so looking forward to reading these to Julia! My favourite was the Happy Hours Story Book, and my favourite within this book was the stories of the Happy House Children, such wholsome, innocent, happy stories
I’ve just ordered this, this and this Christmas book, which I am really hoping arrive soon so I can read them before Christmas ( 2 are coming from the US so I am guessing they’ll probably not get here before Christmas ) but not to worry, I will enjoy these books at any time of the year, as the stories within them sound so lovely, homely and magical, and let’s face it, I love Christmas so I can read about it and enjoy it any time of the year
I was trying to buy A Christmas Dress For Ellen and The First Christmas Stocking, but they’re both so expensive to buy in the UK ( in book form, I don’t have a kindle ) for some reason? If you anyine knows where I could buy these books at a reasonable price, I’d be really grateful if you would let me know
I’m crocheting a Christmas stocking each for Julia, John and I, to hang on our fireplace on Christmas Eve, ready for Santa Claus arriving
Well, better get going, Christmassy things to do
Thank you for reading, bye for now x
