I'm sitting here watching Katie eating a bowl of chocolate ice-cream with some raspberries. She calls it I-keem at the moment. I must keep a note of all the little words she says because she can't pronounce them properly. Today she announced that "Daddy is a good girl!!" She has also picked up that Daddy calls me "Gem" and I realised she was calling me that today. Katie also decided today that she wanted to learn her colours so we are working on that. There seem to be different thoughts on how best to introduce colours including everything being either one particular colour and everything else being "not" that colour. We are going to focus on one colour at a time I think. Today was pink! She is getting quite good at recognising pink today.
We also had a visit from our Social Worker today to check up on Katie and make sure she is doing ok. She is happy with how it's all going, which is great. We are formulating a plan to help Katie cope with missing Grandma. She has been asking for her a lot at the moment, although I am starting to realise that my very clever daughter has cottoned on to the fact that she gets some attention when she mentions Grandma and that she is now saying it a lot of the time, I suspect, to get cuddles. They do keep you on your toes!!!
We went to tumble tots for the first time today. Katie loved it so we will make that a weekly visit for the time being. I am looking forward to the Easter holidays because Daddy will be home for 4 days. Katie loves spending time with him. We also have some friends coming to stay for a few days which I am looking forward to. We have invited lots of friends over for lunch on Wednesday with all their children so it will be a full house but hopefully a fun house!
I am still working on my mission to get Katie eating bread. Today she tried, and loved, tortillas. I showed her how to wrap her meat and cheese into it and eat it. She thought it was a great game and ate nearly the whole tortilla. We have some brioche to try next.
I have to say that I do like spending my time with Katie. How often do you spend a whole day with someone with such intensity?
