is the book, with the last page being “That’s my baby! It’s YOU!” and a mirror. She’s taken to grabbing that page and pressing her mouth onto it, sort of kissing herself in the mirror. It’s very funny and very cute.

Yesterday I took her swimming with Claire and Charlie – she was a bit uncomfortable being in the water, and wasn’t happy unless she was clinging onto me for a while, until I got a surf board, and positioned her on it – alas she fell off and got a dunking, but was just fine afterwards and laughing – so I sat her (more securely this time) on the board and pushed her around while singing a silly song. She sat on the board waving at everyone around the pool. Oh, and flirting with the lifeguard, doing big smiles and waving at him too. She likes the boys.

Oh, and then there was the time I went to put washing out on the line, and she pressed her face up against the window, so I couldn’t open it to get back in. A sort of blowfish type thing going on there, with her standing up and pressing her entire face – she sees me laughing and thinks what she’s doing is a good thing, so keeps at it. I did get back in 5 or so minutes later, mind…
