Lydia is now able to count up to 11, so has become even more enamoured with Hide-and-Seek. She'll instigate this by instructing me to hide in the kitchen, will then count to an arbitrary number between 5 and 11, then will come and find me. Then it's her turn to hide, except that she's not quite got the hang of "hiding" yet. Here is where I found her last night (at least 5 times in a row!).

Our big grown-up Naomi has started losing some teeth...
|First they go a little squint|
|Then they wobble|
|Today, another one fell out. Hope she's being careful this time!|
The past few months have been rather full, so I've gathered quite a collection of pictures covering the various goings-on. Some go back a good few months so there are a mixture of old and new house, and slightly younger children. Here we go...
|I just enjoyed this message on my phone!|
(the MI6 one)
|Lydia playing with her toys in the new house, some time before we'd really unpacked|
|I frequently play hide and seek with Miriam and Lydia when Naomi's out at gymnastics. It's quite easy really, 9/10 times they're hiding in a box.|
|The girls have provided me with some decorations for my office|
|Naomi got this castle for her 5th birthday. Only 13 months later, it was complete!|
|Beautiful wife ready for date night.|
|Lydia reading her bear a story. This book has textures to feel on every page, so she's helping bear feel them.|
|Granny and Grandad took us to the park in Dunfermline a few weeks back for a lovely Sunday afternoon. Miriam is just visible on the massive slide here.|
|A day at the park is truly complete with ice cream!|
|Naomi's card making skills are coming on *very* well.|
|Lydia loves to care for her dollies.|
|Miriam is currently very much in to picking daisies for people. This is mine :)|
|Fun and games in the evening.|
|Miriam with her new dolly.|
|Lydia going for "very cute"|
Bath time is always a time for calming down and getting ready for bed!
|Miriam has always looked cool in sunglasses.|
Now she has real glasses they work even better!
|Lydia appears to be looking for something...|
|Naomi staying up late with me to watch Eurovision last year.|
|Fun and games in the garden|
|Some baby swans on campus last year|
|...a humorous alternative to your own lips!|
|Another late night for our big little girl!|
|I think I might have been using the front-facing camera by mistake. That's my staff room ceiling behind me.|
|Craft is becoming more impressive too.|
|"I'm not up to anything!"|
|We got a bubble making machine. True joy to be had.|
|Naomi is looking far too grown up these days.|
She also loves going to Rainbows.
|Bed time chaos|
|Jay had taken Naomi out swimming. This is Lydia waiting for them to come back (40 minutes too early)|
|Lydia loves to bounce.|
|she also loves these drums she got for her birthday.|
|glow stick fascination|
|and yet more craft|
|I can't express how much I love this picture.|
Miriam got a mask with her magazine treat, and even wore it to bed.
|Lydia getting in to dressing up when on holiday at Grandma & Grandad's house|
|Parents getting an evening off|
|Grandma loves to bake with the girls. I think they like it too!|
