11 : 365(+1)

As the 11th was a Wednesday and I have Alice (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays) there was a good chance my photo for the day would have Alice in it! ;o) 

While eating her lunch today we were counting the number of items of food on her plate.  She loves it on Show Me, Show Me (a TV programme on CBeebies) when the lift goes up the 10 floors and they count from 1 - 10.  So we've started counting little things and today it happened to be some Skips (crisps {English} chips {American/South African}) she was having.  She already counts one, two and I was carrying on, three, four!  I thought it sounded like she was trying to copy me but at this stage it's not clear talking, we just tend to know what she's saying.  However, when Emily got home from school she also though Alice counted one, two, three!  We may be making progress :o) 

I feel so blessed to be able to spend as much time as I do with Alice. I know there are many Grandparents who would love to be able to spend more time with their grandchildren and I/we are so lucky to have the opportunity to do just that.
