Subject:Winter wonderland
Time:09:04 pm

This christmas I took Skye to Winter Wonderland, a funfair that runs in hyde park. We went several times as she liked it so much. I think the first time was the best though, we went during the day, just her and I. The sun was shining, I was carrying her on my shoulders and there was christmas music playing. Skye loved it so much, she went on her first rollercoaster and screamed like crazy.

Subject:Easter monday
Time:09:01 am

Had a lovely day with Skye yesterday, was a nice end to an uneventful Easter. First of all I organised a treasure hunt to find an Easter eggs with clues. She loved that and we sat on the floor sharing the chocolate. Then we went to the funfair. We went on loads of stuff, bouncy castles, roller coasters, spinning penguins, a funhouse and a bungee trampoline. I was wondering if she’d be scared but she loved it. I got giving a strap so I could bounce her up and down, it was like ringing a bell! We went on a fast ride too, but it was a bit fast for her, but I was very proud that she didn’t cry or complain too much.

We then went home to Sarahs for a lovely roast dinner. I’m just a bit sad that I won’t see her for 10 days as she’s off to Bristol

Have been in Bristol for the last week or so visiting Mum & Dad with Skye & Sarah in tow. Has been the first time that we've all spent a significant amount of time together I think. It's been hard work as Sarah has hurt her foot and been ill for a large part of it, but has also been great spending a lot of time with Skye and my parents. Is interesting seeing how she acts in a different environment when the odds are stacked against her and it's not a 1 on 1 situation.
We've gone to the park, shopping in Bristol and went to Bath. Nothing hugely exciting, but is nice to walk about and wander with no particular purpose.
This week has seen the creation of "Sammy Spider" who is actually my own right hand who scurries around like "Thing" from the Adams family. Skye loves Sammy and doesn't stop asking where he is. She gives him hugs and kisses. I'm not sure if Sammy is a good thing or a bad thing yet. On one hand she'll do things with Sammy that she won't do with me, so it gives me a second chance. For example:
"Do you want to go to the toilet?"
"No, want to go with mummy"
"How about with Sammy spider?"
"yes, love sammy spider!"
On the other hand it does get a bit tiresome with her asking about her all the time.

She's been really well behaved today though, is going to be hard when I go back to london and not living with her again.

Been mucking around with the site, trying to get it themed and the gallery working, with limited success.
Skye started nursery the other day. I can't believe how fast she's growing. I have this image in my head of turning the corner to see Sarah & Skye waiting for me, and skye started running towards me with her little bag on her back like a proper little schoolgirl. Lovely.
She got on fine, although a few altercations with the boys on what exactly should go in the oven ;)
Oh another precious memory, she woke me up the other morning and I got a good morning hug. When asked for a good morning kiss, she replied
"No Daddy, not until you wake up" Priceless.

Subject:A lovely little pick me up
Time:10:04 pm
Today I was feeling a bit down and out of sorts, so I gave Skye a big hug.
"Daddy. I love you and I love spending time with you"
Priceless, just what I needed

Time:11:03 am
Hadn't seen Skye for ages as she'd been in Bristol and I've been working really hard. Went over to Sarah's last night to see her and she was napping, so I went in to wake her up.
She stirred as I went into her room and stood up for a hug.
"I missed you lots Daddy" she said as I picked her up and gave me a big kiss.
I can't really describe how that made me feel.

After Sarah went to do some shopping, I put on some music and danced around the room with her. She was grinning like a maniac as we jumped up and down looking into each others eyes. I love her so much.

She's speaking a crazy amount now. Full blown conversations consisting of many full sentences with correct inflections and everything. Clever girl.

It was a pleasure spending timewith Skye this evening, she was very giggly and cuddly. I got a few really big hugs that warmed my heart to the core (and even a few stealth ones). One of them lasted for 5 minutes, neither of us willing to break the hug, making soft noises of contentment at each other.
I love you little girl.

Went to the park yesterday and had lots of fun. Stopped by on the way back and bought some ice-cream. Skye went slightly hyper in a very funny way :) After dancing and giggling on the patio table, I went to the lounge and she followed me shuffling across the kitchen tiles very slowly. She gets to the kitchen door and looks at the carpet in front of her.
"Daddy, I'm stuck on the stone"
"What?"
"Stuck on the stone, I can't get off"
"Would you like me to carry you?"
"Yeah, probably is easier"
She cracks me up!

Subject:A lovely saturday
Time:12:03 am
I had a lovely day with you today. We didn't do an awful lot to be honest, but I enjoyed the closeness a lot. We had a bath, then played in the spare room bouncing on the bed and doing backflips. You told me to leave the room so you could hide under the covers. We went to the park after you'd had your nap where completely of your own volition, decided to go down the slide head first. That's my girl :) You climbed the rope ladder too like a little monkey. I can't wait till you're big enough to go on the big climbing frames.
I also turned my stairs into a slide. This is either a really good or a really bad idea, I'm not sure which. I need to do some DIY to make it a bit safer though.
I've stopped being relieved that I can relax when you go to bed and started missing you when you're asleep. Sweet dreams baby.

Not feeling well this weekend and coughing lots.
"Daddy's not very well" I say, in between coughs
"Skye give Daddy a kiss" she say from the worktop, and does so
"Have a bite of my biscuit Daddy, make you feel better"

Awwww.
