Well today was a memorable day for two reasons. It was Marika’s birthday (25 again I hear you say!!) and Isabella took her first swim. She wore her brand new swimsuit, courtesy of Aunty Sandra and Uncle Derek, and braved the warm pool. She took to the water like a little duckling with her special nappy floatation device. Mum and dad paddled around with Miss Bella then it was time to get out and get ready for dinner. We went to an Indian restaurant not far from our place and while there Bella showed us her vocal capacity. She is starting to talk more and more – Jason thinks she takes after me – and likes to chat to us whenever she can.We had a great day.
