It’s official! My age is finally a real number, I am one. I had such a nice birthday and to be honest it has felt like my birthday everyday for the past week. Daddy has mentioned that mummy really likes birthdays and tries very hard to make her birthday last for as long as she can get away with, I like her thinking and so I have taken a leaf out of her book and had a birthday week.
I have been so lucky, lots of people have been so generous and bought me presents. Thank you so much, I love all my new clothes and toys. My wardrobe has doubled in size and I love it. I am spoilt for choice now and love helping mummy pick out my new outfit for the day.
Wednesday was a very exciting day, my Omi and Poppy bought me swimming lessons for my birthday but sadly the term is too far into the season so we have to wait until next term after Easter. I was a little bit sad but mummy took me swimming anyway and Uncle Luke came with too. It was a little bit cold getting in and out but I love the water. I am a real water baby kicking around and trying to put my face under the water and blow bubbles. We tried to take pictures but we got in trouble from the lifeguard. I had the biggest smile on my face the whole time. I am hoping mummy takes me more regularly during the week, so when my classes start I can show off how good I am. I can’t wait till we have a summer holiday and I can go swimming in the beach again.
Thursday was my real birthday and I had such a fun day. Daddy got me out of bed early and gave me big kisses and hugs. Once he left for work mummy and I snuggled in bed and slept in a little bit longer. We had planned to meet up with Natasha and Reece and spend the day at a HUGE softplay centre called Gambados. We met Natasha and Reece at the tube and then caught a bus to Chelsea Harbour. Mummy knew exactly where to go as she used to catch the same bus when she worked in Chelsea Harbour. Gambado’s was AMAZING!!! It was so big I didn’t know where to start bu Reece showed me exactly where to go. It’s funny because mummy was so excited for my birthday but when we got to gambado’s she told them my birthday was the next day – I think it had something to do with paying but it was very confusing for me, as I was wearing my birthday outfit again, I was sure my birthday was today. Anyhoo we got in I went straight to the ball pit. I am really confident in there now and I bury myself in the balls and throw them at people. Then I climbed the soft wall all the way up to the top to slide down the big slippery dip. It was so much fun! There are three sections you can play in, there are also dodgem cars and a tea cup ride. Mummy was having an awesome time as well, she felt like a big kid again. I think I want my birthday party here next year.
After Gambado’s mummy and Natasha walked to the pub to get some burgers for lunch, it was literally around the corner and Reece and I were asleep almost immediately, all this birthday fun is exhausting!!
