Farrah's 3rd Birthday! #28/365

Yesterday, eldest daughter turned 3! I thought I would cry, but I didn't. It's hard to be sad that your baby is no longer a baby when they are so excited. This is the first year she has really understood what a 'birthday' is.

She has spent the past week counting down how many sleeps she had left until it was her day, at first, not quite grasping the concept that pretend sleep didn't count, but we got there in the end.

Mike had already left for work so we opened all but her main gift; A Rapunzel princess dress, Ariel Toddler Doll, new shoes, socks, and some clothes. Her main gift was the Ozbozz 'My First Scooter' in pink.

Mike was given a half day so we spent the rest of the day visiting family and finally collapsed at home at around 8.30pm.  Today we are having a lazy day at home and I've put as little as possible on my to do list.

Tomorrow Farrah has her second settling in session at nursery, ready for when her 3 year funding comes in in April.  I'm hoping to put her in for 3 afternoons per week between 1pm and 6pm.  I was considering a full day but I think 10 hours (8am - 6pm) is just too long for a toddler who is not used to a nursery setting so I think breaking it up would be the best option for us and her.

She really enjoyed her first session yesterday.  I wasn't sure how she was going to take it, and she was quite standoffish at first but after 10 minutes she was off playing with the other children, having a ball so I don't think I will have anything to worry about when it comes to leaving her there on Friday for an hour.
