Katie has gone nuts on Johnny and the sprites from playhouse disney. every time an ad comes on for the show she stops whatever she is doing and stares at the tv with the biggest grin on her face. so of course me being the geek i am had to find the web site for the show. which lead us to the Playhouse Disney web site. now we have a nightly ritual of her sitting on my knee while she watches the two music videos from the show that are on the web site. she sits there and grins and then babbles on and i swear tonight she said Johnny lol….hasnt said Mummy yet but she will say Johnny! should i be jealous or just except the fact that I will be dada forever.
I cant get over how quickly she is learning things and growing up. she knows what she likes and what she wants. i can see i am going to have one very strong willed young lady on my hands, just like all the other females in our family. i am proud to say my neices (all 4 of them) are all strong willed tough young ladies (the eldest is 18 and youngest is almost 13) no one gets the better of any of them. and i think Katie will be much the same. shes already had a couple of time outs in her room and shes learning that once she is on the time out seat she has to stay there til i get her off. i dont want her to grow up to fast but she picks things up so quickly that there will be no holding her back. i keep putting off taking her to playgroup because i am not ready to admite she is old enough now and she does need it. seems like only yesterday she was tiny brand new baby and now shes a little girl, seems like the moment she started walking she stopped being a baby and became a little person. in someways shes still very much my baby, she still has a bottle and sleeps in her cot and has to stick to her routine at night, dinner, bath, playtime and cuddles with me and then tucked in by mum and her dezee as she calls stevie. otherwise she doesnt settle.
shes sound asleep now, she wore herself out today and didnt have her normal afternoon sleep, she wanted to play with Tori, its almost like she knows he wont be here much longer, he booked his tickets back to Aussie yesterday and leaves on the 14th, we are all going to miss him. he can be a right royal pain the butt at times but hes been good to have around, even if i do think of him as my wee baby nephew sometimes, hey its hard for an auntie to admite that he’s an adult now because if hes 22 that makes me……omg to old! lol…..
anyway i had a sleepless night last night, another flare up sigh, so i am going to have an early one tonight. i am buggered. so later everyone!
