We had a slight mishap a couple of days ago when Harry decided to give Mia one of her presents early. To be fair he did ask us each individually if he could, but we were busy with other things and so he just got on with it and opened a present for her! We couldn't really tell him off because he was only doing it because he wanted her to have her present.
This morning we had a little cake and sang Happy Birthday before opening presents. We bought her a Peppa Pig ride on, cunningly purchased in the sales at the end of last summer and stowed away. We also re-gave her a doll that we had bought her for Christmas but she was too little for, she's a bit more interested in it now. To go with that she received from my parents a little pink pushchair and both sets of grandparents bought her some lovely clothes. More gorgeous clothes from my brother and some squeaky eggs from my sister made her a very lucky little girl!

We've been having a few lessons with Harry about how although it is important that they do both share their toys with each other, sometimes it is nice to give the birthday girl the opportunity to play with her own presents first before running off with them.

She also has a few words, we think that her first word was Ha-ra (Harry) and she also says Da-Da in context, something that sounds a bit like Teddy and Ra-Ra-Ra for Ram's phone (because it plays the Wheels on the Bus go ra-ra-ra.) I love watching Harry and Mia playing and interacting together. Sometimes I can't quite believe how lucky we are!
