06/10/2007 - The Ickenham miniature railway

Photo for Journal Entry

We finally got round to going along to the miniature railway in Ickenham. We met up with Gav, Becky and Freddy and got down there just after it opened. Unfortunately the steam train broke down, so we had to ride an electric one, but I don't think Elizabeth minded.

All of a sudden, Elizabeth loves her dollies and soft toys. She feeds them, puts them to bed, takes them for walks, and kisses them a lot. And pokes them in the eyes.

15/09/2007 - Pushchair races

Photo for Journal Entry

Elizabeth playing with two of our neighbours, Rebecca and Callum. Elizabeth lost the race every time, but she didn't seem to mind. Stopping to wave didn't help!

07/09/2007 - Hello!

Elizabeth greatly enjoyed painting her hands.

27/08/2007 - Albino python

This was at Swallowfield show. They had a reptile tent, and Elizabeth loved the snakes and lizards! She was braver stroking them than she is with dogs and cats!

23/08/2007 - Hello?

We went bowling again, and Elizabeth was a bit better than last year. I think she beat Clare in one game...

On the way back from the wedding we stopped at Drayton Manor theme park. There weren't many rides Elizabeth could go on, but she enjoyed the day there!

13/07/2007 - Trentham Monkey Forest

Photo for Journal Entry

On the way up to Buxton for the wedding we stopped at Trentham Monkey Forest where they have 80 or so Barbary macaques wandering freely through a forest which you are free to walk through too. Shame it was tipping down!

The photos from the wedding are under 'The other stuff' then 'weddings' then 'Mark and Ruth'

Have a look down as far as 17th June as we have added a couple of photos we missed.

06/07/2007 - First haircut!

Photo for Journal Entry

Elizabeth's first haircut. They didn't cut much off! Just tidied it up a bit.

27/06/2007 - Hana and William

Photo for Journal Entry

We visited Susan, Mal, Hana and William at the weekend, and the sun did come out for a bit. Elizabeth tried very hard to give William a kiss, and managed it in the end, after he tired of fighting her off...

17/06/2007 - Painting

Photo for Journal Entry

Elizabeth thoughtfully got me some paints for her for Father's day, so we tried them out. Outside, obviously. A masterpiece I think!

17/06/2007 - Father's day!

Photo for Journal Entry

I got a lovely breakfast in bed (complete with some flowers Elizabeth picked in the garden).

17/06/2007 - Bike trailer

09/05/2007 - WALKING!!!

We went to the doctors for an injection, and when we got back, she was off! This was about half an hour after her first step. She learnt fast!

07/05/2007 - Giant Dog!

Photo for Journal Entry

This was at the Wokingham May Day festival. Since we went to Odds farm Park, Elizabeth has taken to pointing at all animals, especially dogs, and you couldn't miss this one!

04/05/2007 - Elizabeth's house!

Photo for Journal Entry

Elizabeth is very happy with her house, although her head does touch the ceiling, and the roof is a bit saggy. It is now resident in our living room due to bad weather.

Photo for Journal Entry

We've been making the most of the sun and sorting out our front garden, with a little help from Elizabeth who ate some dirt for us.

The trike was a birthday present from Mum and Dad (that's us, not my Mum and Dad)

Photo for Journal Entry

This photo was actually taken months ago, at the end of Elizabeth's first swimming course last October. We have only just got it though when she started level 2!
