New Years Resolution

Hi all! Last week we went to a New Years Eve party. Mummy says that at New Years you make "resolutions", which is a big word meaning a promise to do something different. Well this year I promise to blog more often. I haven't been able to blog much in the last year. I used to have naps/quiet time every afternoon, and I would sometimes get on the computer (without Mummy knowing) and either play Reader Rabbit or surf the internet or blog. But now I am a big girl and I don't need naps any more. But that means no time for the computer either.

So here's a run down of the last year ...

JANUARY - My birthday!!!

FEBRUARY - I started going to creche once a week. It was heaps of fun. I loved playing with the Duplo, and reading books by myself. I learnt heaps of stuff, like how to use scissors, and how to paint, and lots of new songs to sing.

MARCH - It was Easter time. I love Easter. I got lots of chocolate eggs. I didn't really like having to find the eggs though. But later in the year Mummy taught me a game called "hot and cold". It took me a while to get the hang of it but now I like to hide things for Mummy and Daddy to find. I think it's more fun if I always hide them in the same place.

APRIL - Mummy and Daddy took the sides off my cot, so now I sleep in a big girl bed. I can also get out of bed whenever I want to. Sometimes I play with my toys at night if I'm not sleepy. In the mornings I get up when there's a 7 on my clock and I go to Mummy and Daddy's room.

MAY - I stopped wearing nappies and started wearing knickers instead. Sometimes I get so busy that I forget to go toilet. But most of the time I go toilet when I need to. I don't need to use the potty any more, I can climb up onto the toilet all by myself.

We went to the circus and I saw the clowns and the juggler and the acrobats and the Witch with the Itch and the Talking Frog and the Black Knight and more.

JUNE - Mimi and Poppa and Auntie Mardie and Uncle Richard came to visit. We went to Lollipops and Junglerama with them. And I got to play with them, and watch cartoons with them and do dances for them.

JULY - Auntie Gayle came to visit. I got to go on a ferry boat. On the ferry boat there were people dressed up as animals, doing dances. We went to the South Island and visited Mummy's cousin Kathy. I watched Nemo and played with toys. We also went to Rotorua. I watched DVD's there too. I loved having Auntie Gayle here because she played with me all the time. Auntie Gayle took me to see Dora at the theatre.

AUGUST - I started going to Playcentre with Mummy and Victoria. I like playing with the dolls house the most. I also like the dress ups and the books and the sandpit. I don't like it when the boys run around and scare me.

Mummy took me and Victoria to the Parent & Child Show, where I saw Dora and Backpack walking around. I got to say Hi to Dora, and she gave me a sticker. I got my face painted like a tiger.

SEPTEMBER - A lady called Gina came and looked after Victoria and I for a few days. Gina's son Jed came too, he is the same age as me. We went to Tiny Town and Te Papa. I love Te Papa, but I don't like the wild boar. It scares me.

OCTOBER - I got chicken pox. It wasn't very nice. I was very miserable, and tired, and itchy.

NOVEMBER - It was Victoria's birthday. I got to help her open her presents. Then we went to the Santa parade in town and I saw Santa. And lots of other things too.

DECEMBER - We moved to a new house. I have a new bedroom. I also have lots of new toys that I got for Christmas. I love playing with my toys. I love playing Shop and I love playing with my Little People and making them do things.

Victoria got a floor puzzle with the alphabet on it (that can be arranged in different ways). I know most of my letters now. Mummy and I like to play a game where she says a letter and I jump to it. I'm really good at jumping now too.

Well, that's it for 2008. Next month I'll post some more.

Love KAT
