We've moved into the loft! It is very exciting to sleep so high. Isla helped Andrew to build our bed by passing things and helping with the screwdriver, as well as attempting to climb over anything that vaguely resembled a balance beam or tunnel (Tumble Tots skills are coming into their own).
Isla's been investigating leaves:
...attempting to release hamsters at Pets at Home:
She's also been balancing and transporting things in her little wagon!
Yesterday we went to the toddler group, which was great as lots of our friends were there and I could start my role as secretary on the committee. Isla initially was desperate to find a tractor to play with, however we couldn't find any. She ended up playing with the little toy kitchen and plastic fruit and particularly enjoyed her mid-morning rich tea biscuit. She found a baby doll to carry around with her.
This morning we went swimming. Isla enjoyed it and was more confident in the water due to all our Spanish swims last week. She could hold her head up nicely in the water. Her armbands were really good at keeping her afloat although I think she still had a fair few drinks from the pool. By chance we met some friends there and splashed around with them for a bit as well as practising kicking and stacking the crab shaped floats. No photos from the pool, especially as there were signs everywhere expressly forbidding it, shame really!
Isla's new word is: 'bum'. She can now tell you where your bum is, if you need to know.
