I'm very excited, today is my last day at Summer Camp because tomorrow Mummy and Daddy are taking me on a big aeroplane and we are coming home to visit you all! It's been a busy week for Mummy trying to get organised to come back. Mummy still keeps unpacking the extra toys I have been putting in the cases! I'm not impressed! Mummy is going to get her nails done whilst I'm at camp this morning as a treat for doing all of our packing- I'm not sure she has told Daddy yet though...

After Summer Camp yesterday, Mummy took me swimming and we had lots of fun. My favourite game is jumping in off the side at the deep end. I kept landing on Mummy and she was going under the water. I found it very funny! I tried to swim without my armbands on but I don't float at the top for very long. I was very brave though and didn't panic or cry when I went under the water. Mummy says I'll get there soon. Daddy came home early and we all played together last night. I also had ice cream as a treat!

This afternoon I am going to see my friends Dhani, Lila and Lily and we will be having birthday cake to celebrate Dhani turning 2 tomorrow. I hope Mummy has wrapped his presents, I'm not very good at it! I also told Mummy that if Dhani doesn't want his presents, I'll keep them instead! I'm really looking forward to having cake! When we get home, I have just one more sleep! I am really looking forward to seeing my Nanny and Granddad tomorrow and Aunty Becci is coming over too! On Saturday morning, my cousins will come to Nanny and Granddads for breakfast before we drive to Kent to see my other Nanny, Granddad, Aunties, Uncles and cousin! It's going to be a busy weekend!

I hope I see you very soon!

Lots of love

3 More Sleeps...

It's probably obvious that we are getting very excited about coming home to visit this weekend! Mummy and I have done most of our shopping but we weren't able to get shoes for me. I've got funny size feet according to Mummy and anything we did find that fitted was too summery for the UK. Mummy also looked for shoes that I can wear to my Aunty and Uncles wedding and I chose some very pretty white ones with 3 roses on them. Mummy said I wasn't allowed them when she checked the price, so I ran around the shop and refused to take them off! She wasn't very happy about it, but I wasn't very happy that she wouldn't buy me the beautiful, expensive shoes!

I've had a few good days at summer camp this week. My favourite teacher Miss Vicky has been working in the classroom next door to me so I have been pressing my face up against the window to get her attention. Sometimes she comes into cuddle me! We were singing lots of songs this afternoon before mummy came to get me but I have a tummy bug so wasn't joining in. I feel a bit better after my nap this afternoon though. I have to be better ready to go on the aeroplane on Friday too!

I have 2 days left at summer camp and on Thursday I'm going to Lily's house to have a little party for our friend Dhani's birthday. I'm looking forward to eating some cake! Dhani's mummy bakes delicious cakes, I can't wait! Mummy took me shopping to choose Dhani's birthday presents too, I hope he likes them and I hope he lets me help unwrap them! Daddy is coming home early today so we get to have dinner together and he can give me a bath- my favourite time of day!

I can't wait to see you all in a few days!

Lots of love

Last Weekend in Dubai...

Well for 3 weeks anyway! Mummy, Daddy and I are literally counting down the days now. Daddy reminded us this morning that there are just 6 days to go until we fly to Birmingham! All of us are excited and Mummy has nearly finished packing! I was very lucky yesterday. We went to the mall and Daddy took me to play at Peekaboo whilst Mummy got on with the shopping. I had lots of fun but Daddy struggled to keep up with me and my fast running! He told Mummy I wore him out after an hour! Mummy managed to get a few more clothes that we needed for home without spending so much that Daddy gave her the disapproving look. We went home and had lunch together before Daddy and I fell asleep. I really must have tired him out!

Once we woke up, Mummy got me all dressed up and we went over to have dinner with friends. I met their new baby Aida too, she was very small and seemed a little bit frightened when I screamed. We had a lie down together under her play gym too! Dinner was delicious but a little bit spicy so I blew raspberries to get the heat off my tongue! Luckily everyone thought it was funny. Baby Aida has 2 cats that I had lots of fun chasing and terrifying! I asked Mummy if we can have cats too but she said not until I'm older and calmer. We came home well past my bedtime so I fell straight to sleep and slept in until after 8am this morning.

We have spent this morning swimming. I haven't been with both Mummy and Daddy for a long time. We had lots of fun kicking our legs and playing with my beach ball. I also jumped in off the sides a lot! I had a lovely time and didn't want to come out! We came home for lunch and now Mummy is insisting that I go and have a nap. Next week is my last at Summer Camp, I'm looking forward to lots more fun activities but most of all, I'm looking forward to getting on an aeroplane on Friday and coming to see you all!

Lots of love

My Baby Brother

Whilst I was in Summer Camp this morning, Mummy and Daddy had to go and see their consultant to check that our baby is growing well. The heartbeat is very strong and everything has developed properly so my parents and I are very happy. The Consultant was correct at Mummies first scan and we will be welcoming a little boy into our world in December. It will be the best Christmas present after my toys...

Mummy can feel the baby moving lots now and my brother kicks me when I sit on Mummies lap! He's going to have to learn to share if he wants to live with me! We are all very excited now and are just over half way to Mummies due date. I did hear Mummy mention to Daddy that we will have to do some shopping again soon as everything I had when I was a baby was pink! I hate shopping so I'm not impressed! I'll suggest Mummy does all of her shopping on the days I am in nursery!

We told all of my grandparents after the scan this morning and they are all really pleased. This is Nanny and Grandad White's first Grandson but Nanny & Grandad Hewson's fourth! I'm still the only girl on Mummies side of the family so I'll have to learn to stick up for myself when we move back home and live near my cousins!

A week today will be my last day at Summer Camp. We fly home to visit everyone a week tomorrow and we are very excited! I'm hoping to get to wear my Peppa Pig wellies so hopefully there will be rain! Mummy is searching for the raincover for my pushchair! We have never used it so she's not quite sure which safe place she has put it in! Silly Mummy. I must go, Mummy and I are considering an afternoon in the pool whilst Daddy has to get on with his work.

Lots of love

10 Days (& Still Counting!)

Mummy told me that there are just 10 days until we go on a big aeroplane to see everyone back home! I'm very excited as I can count to that number and it isn't very many at all! We had best get on with our packing! I've noticed Mummy has zipped up my case so I can't add anything to it anymore! Mummy has told me that when we go shopping on Friday, I am allowed to choose some new travel toys to take on the plane with us. I think it's a good deal considering she is planning on dragging me around clothes shops all morning! I'm still hoping Daddy will take me to the play area instead though. I'll mention it to him tonight!

I've been to summer camp again today. It's been lots of fun but I got very hot playing outside this morning! My teachers always tell Mummy how I get very hot and sweaty, but that's normal for me. I'm not designed for weather like this! This afternoon, Mummy is taking me to play at Dhani and Lila's house. I can't wait but I've got to have a nap first so that I'm not grumpy! I'm a little cross that Mummy went swimming again this morning without me. I found her bikini so she can't deny it! She has promised to take me on Saturday morning with her.

I hope everyone is enjoying their week. Looking forward to seeing you all very soon!

Lots of love and kisses,

Summer Camp

I'm into my second week at Summer Camp and am really enjoying it. I have a new teacher, she is also from Britain and is just lovely! Mummy watched in surprise as I ran up to her yesterday and gave her a big cuddle. Even more exciting was when my nursery teacher appeared at the door! I gave her an even bigger cuddle and was very excited when I heard her tell Mummy that she is definitely taking my class from September! We did lots of playing yesterday and when Mummy came to collect me, I was diving around in the soft play area whilst my teacher chased me. It was a lot of fun but I was very pleased to see Mummy and go home for my nap!

Off to Summer Camp on my trike- I'm not very good at peddling forwards so Mummy has to help!

We had a quiet weekend again last week as Daddy has caught my bug! He's not been very well at all. Mummy and I had to make our own indoor entertainment on Friday but on Saturday Daddy said he felt wel enough to go out so I was taken to soft play. It's lots of fun and Daddy seemed to enjoy playing there with me too! I wish every day was a weekend so Daddy wouldn't have to go to work! Daddy came home early yesterday so we could have dinner together and he could bath me. I then refused to go to bed until 8pm as I wanted to watch cartoons!

Soft Play on Saturday! Daddy wouldn't join me in the sand pit as he didn't want to get sandy?!

We are flying back to the UK in less than 2 weeks and are counting down the days! This weekend will be the last chance for Mummy to buy suitable clothes for us. I really don't want to go shopping so am hoping Daddy will take me to the play area whilst Mummy gets on with it! Hopefully they both read this and take the hint! There are so many people we want to see when we get home, it's very very exciting! Especially as this will be the only chance we will have to fly back this year because of our baby! Mummy has another scan on Thursday. I'm hoping that she will ask her consultant to confirm whether I'm having a brother or sister as last time Mummy and Daddy were told, it was very early and could have easily been a mistake! I hope Mummy and Daddy let me tell you all too! I'm not allowed to go to the scan as I'll be in Summer Camp so Mummy has promised to show me photos again.

I hope you are all having a lovely week and are enjoying the Olympics. I find it all very boring except for the gymnastics which I have tried to copy! That looks like fun!

See you next week!

Lots of love
