I decided we had to get out of the house yesterday; H has a cold, and she’s miserable with it, and I was getting bored of being inside. It was lovely and sunny and there’s only so much you can do outside before you want to leave the confines of our home.

So off we went in the car. I sit H in her seat, and am about to walk to sit in mine, when I’m told very definitely, very firmly “mummy, open the windows now please”. Guess that told me…

She really seems to be getting into asking things – up to now we’ve had her ask for things with just a name and a please, but we’re trying to get her to say more (like “I’d like some yoghurt please daddy” at dinner time), which she’s copying straight away – her vocabulary is really growing right now.
