She had asked for a camera so that was one of the first presents she opened. We'd checked out all the kiddie cameras which come at about £50 each but she had one of those a few years ago for christmas and it was rubbish for a number of reasons.
1) it ate batteries like they were going out of fashion
2) it was massive
3) it had a load of stupid functions on it that meant that she could easily switch it to stupid hat mode, which ruined some great pics and
4) we took it to Honk Kong last summer and it broke.
So, after some expert advice from uncle A we went for a cheap digital camera which went down a storm with little i. Her first photo was of her sister.
We also got her a cornet. It's just a cheap second hand one from ebay. She's been playing our french horns for a while but they're big and a little expensive for a toddler to be playing with so we got her an instrument of her own.
To be honest, this didn't go down as well as the pom poms a friend got her, which she calls bom boms for some reason but she loves them none the less.
We waited to show her my mum and dads present until they came round. We all went into to garden to find...
Little m took in the days events in her usual style
The birthday treat was to go ice skating in Nottingham. Little i is very good with a penguin to hold her up but we discovered that she's also good without a penguin, I think she just kids on that she needs a penguin coz she likes the look of it.
We finished the day with a trip to Toys R Us to get Robs dads' present to little i and spend some birthday money. She's got £15 and managed to get 3 babies and a sweet shop with it! For the first time she actually gave her dolls names too. We have hannah/anna, inna and honey.
So there we go. i am now the proud owner of a three year old. I'll finish with a few pics of the day from little i's new camera.
