Yesterday was my birthday and it wasn't a very flash affair. The boys and I went around to Alice's in the afternoon where we ate some cake and a few other treats but the memory that will stay with me is of the beautiful happy birthday song that the 3 boys sang me with big beaming smiles. (Alice sang too but she wasn't nearly as cute)

After yet another night where we allowed out bed to be invaded by boys who struggle to go back to sleep at night Luke woke up in our bed the other morning. He sang me a variety of songs such as itsi-bitsy spider and the wheels on the bus before leaping up and saying 'Where's Daddy'. Instead of running down the hallway as I expected him to do he ran to the window, put his head under the curtain and said "Daddy car, one, two. Daddy gone." Luke has learnt from Jack and I that unless there are 3 MacLennans cars outside Daddy isn't home

The long awaited Grandparent visit began yesterday. As it was 8pm Jack was well asleep but night-owl Luke was still up and watching out the window as they pulled up. Luke's language has shot ahead in the time since they last saw him and although he had never shown any clear awareness of what 'Granny' & 'Grandpa' meant before when they walked in the door he was there to meet them clammouring 'Gran-Car Gran-Car'

 When Jack was the same age he called Grandpa 'Grandma' so at least it's an improvement

Luke is no longer a baby and his new independence is marked with the constant refrain of 'I do it'. Sometimes he needs a little help and it doesn't seem to hurt his pride if I conveniently place a bag where he can stand on it to get height. Luke also stops & goes back to shut the doors we go through although sometimes he does campaign to be carried

Luke's language it gaining in sophistication and he is pretty good at getting him message across. He is frequently to be seen standing at our feet reaching up and saying 'pick it up'. We correct him 'Pick me up' and Luke invariantly responds 'yersh' in that wonderful tone he has that seems to say 'See Mummy - I knew you could do it"
