New Year, New Kinder

Sheena is settling into her routine nicely for year. Early Intervention Kinder is going well so far - she has adapted to the new room and new teachers with ease. I am very excited about her starting a weekly swim program. Its a full excursion every Tuesday, where they leave kinder on a bus trip to the public pool. They have to carry their own bags into the swim centre, but they'll get oodles of support with swiming and with dressing etc which she definitely needs. I am so going to spy on her, and be very careful not to let her see me. I want to see how different she behaves at the pool when I am not around. When I go swimming with her is very clingy, but at the same time really likes it and does lots of kicking and uses the kick-board with a lot of enthusiasm.

Summer swimmers

These are the first proper swimmers Sheena has ever worn! She always used to wear swim-nappies. Speaking of which we are have a lot of success with toilet training. Sheena is consistently going wee or poo in the potty 2 or 3 times a day. We started in October, so thats good progress as far as I am concerned. She still has some accidents, but it does not seem far off that we'll be able to tick off this huge milestone.

Her other big milestone is that she has just turned 4. She had an intimate party at home with ice-cream cake, then a family dinner at nan and pop's with her big-cousin Mark down from NC to share in the occasion. This little girl LOVES a party. She pretended to be shy during Happy Birthday at the party, but then was jumping out of her seat at Happy Birthday at Nan and Pops.

Sheena is being very tricky with her little brother. Taking his toys, pushing him over, and just getting in his space every living minute. The minute they are alone together Roy cries from some antics. Supervision is really intense at the moment, but hopefully it will pass.
