Beth was born on 18th April
1997 after being frozen as an embryo for 15 months. She currently weighs
39pounds and is 103cm or 42inches high.
Beth likes ballet, gym and swimming.
She loves books and being tickled and most of all she loves being cuddled.
She also loves Sunday School and Nursery and is currently singing "When
Santa Got Stuck up the Chimney" in preparation for her nativity play.
September was eventful. Beth fell
off a lock beam and broke her arm and then a couple of days later climbed
on a swing seat in the garden and turned it over cutting her lips and gums
and her two front teeth went black. In one of these incidents she also
damaged her knee which resulted in lots of hospital trips to investigate
the damage. In the end it turned out to be fluid on her knee and she made
a full recovery.
Beth loves ice-cream and chocolate.
She only likes the icing on cakes, MESSY.
Beth goes to bed at 8pm and falls
asleep in seconds. She wakes up at about 7am and loves coming into bed
with Mummy for a snuggle. Beth is a Mummy's girl.
Beth loves Winnie the Pooh and is
hoping for a very very small bear for Christmas. Beth generally likes small
things rather than big things, especially small books. Beth also likes
Lego and spent all of last Christmas putting blocks together but she doesn't
Beth loves drawing and counting
but doesn't want to try writing yet.
Beth gets on very well with
her big brother Jamie and they miss each other when they are apart.
We are currently letting Beth's
hair grow long and she loves having slides, clips and bows being put in
it. Beth much prefers dresses to trousers and loves dressing up, especially
in pretty things.
This summer we spent on our boat.
Beth found the work hard and the days long. She also found going to sleep
at night difficult. One memorable night she couldn't settle and finally
I told her that we were going to bed too and that she was on her own. We
got into bed and Beth came down the boat one more time to ask if she could
sleep with us. Very funny.
Life with Beth as a 3 1/2 year
old is easier than it was just a few months ago. Her social skills are
developing which makes life easier for her and the rest of us.
When Beth was less than 2 1/2
she asked if she could drive the car. I see trouble coming.
About the same time Beth grabbed
Jamie and asked "Where my tail?" She has recently found her tail and enjoys
finding out more about it. LOL.
