3 Today, Where Has the Time Gone Big Sister

Today our family celebrated Ceienna's 3rd Birthday. Its been a day of fun and laughter. The Children went to School in their Pajamas to raise money for  Children in Need they thought this was great. We then picked Ceienna up and took her out and about for while Keeping a promise to Kellyn that we would wait for him to get home from school before we did anything. After Collecting Kellyn we got home the house was decorated with Balloons and Banners for our special princess. She got in and her presents where piled high on the Kitchen Table. She opened them all having great fun. We were soon joined by other family members and the real fun began having birthday tea and playing on the wii.

Ceienna has amazed me since Arrianna was born in February she has taken to having a baby sister well and is very proud to show her off. When she is not at Nursery Ceienna is always keen to help Arrianna, She is always willing to take part in Arrianna's Physio routine and to play with her special sister. Ceienna will often encourage Arrianna to explore new toys and shows her how to play with them. Ceienna also loves to share books with Arrianna, All this is sure a big help to Arrianna.

Though Ceienna is only 3years old she has a fine head on her shoulders she can fluently use two languages English and Welsh. . She is also learning Makaton and doing well with this too. She knows her alpherbet and can count in English and Welsh right up to 20. She is very stub-on and has been known to out whit the most experienced folk out there.

I just look forward to the future with my Children, Watch this space.

We Did It !!!!!!!!!!!! 8 Months Update.

 After months of work. Arrianna has now moved on to being able to put food in her mouth on her own. It has took months of work to teach Arrianna how to put food in her mouth and to get the co ordination right to put food in her mouth but we have now done it. With Arrianna having no natural instinct she has to be taught the most basic of things. She has to be constantly kept a close eye on now as she does not realize when she is pushing something to far into her mouth and choking herself, but still we will get round this given time.  Its lovely to see her determination to succeed when she has her mind set on doing something.

Arrianna is still attending Physio and we are doing daily exercises with her to help build up her strength this is paying off and our next goal is for her to sit up unaided.

Arrianna loves music and responds well to it. I have brought her some musical instruments which she loves to play with as some lights which respond to sound again she loves.

I have started to put lots of updates on her facebook page ( See Links on the side ) to its well worth joining, Arrianna is getting quite a little fan club together.

Ironbridge, Museum of Iron & Enginuity

This is a great fun place where you can discover the science behind Ironbridge along with many other things. There are Many Hands on Exhibits here.

While we visited on Sunday we had the best time we have had in ages we just laughed and laughed. One thing i love about being a parent is being able to be a big kid myself, even if we did end up getting a little wet. lol.

Enginuity offers somethign for all ages, even Arrianna's size as they have a soft play area. Arrianna also got excited over the X-ray machine as did i. As inside was a Merrythoughts Teddy Bear, Something i love and collect as and when i find them. As they are made in Ironbridge.

 After a quick lunch break we headed over to the Museum of Iron. Where we Learned the History to Abraham Derby's Discovery and its impact on the Coalbrookdale area. There was also an exhibition on Crystal Place something i feel is a great loss to us, I would have loved to have visited the Great Exhibition in London and seen the latest technology from Around the World. Unfortunately the Crystal Palace was destroyed by Fire a great loss to our world History i feel.  
 Kellyn as ever had lots of Questions so we sat down to watch a short film peace on the Darby family and then we sat and had a good talk answering questions and talking about what we had seen. As it was such a lovely day we wondered over the ground to view the original blast furnace which is preserved under a specially built canopy. Kellyn and Ceienna Found this most interesting. Before heading home we visited the Ironbridge. The children love walking over it so we did. We all had such a wonderful time together and Kellyn was still talking about it days later.

Oh What a Night

Well What can i Say, But What a Night. Friday We headed for a night out and what a fab time it was too. The school held a Talent night. There were many acts on the stage all great i was so glad i wasn't judging it must have been a had choice to make who would win. Kellyn headed off to join his friends, Ceienna played tricks on her Friends and Arrianna and i sat in the Corner of the room bopping away to the music, Arrianna had a massive smile all night long. She loves Music and Dancing and even more so the disco lights. Just totally fab, Cant wait for our next nocturnal adventures.

Remembrance 2011

As remembrance Day draws near i would like to pay tribute to those who fought for our freedom. May these days not only be a time of respect for those that made the biggest sacrifice but also a celebration of peace. I am just Sorry but this was not The War to End All Wars and i Pray that someday very Soon our world will be united in harmony.

For me the Poppy signifies so much. The Red , The Blood for the serving Men and Women. The Black the Eyes That Wept and the Green fresh new beginnings.
