big mouth strikes again

Lilian has started to speak! Well, make a funny noise that sounds like Daddy at least. She responds to you like she's trying to convey her thoughts on how tonight's episode of Eastenders was both a telling tale of gritty life in the East of London interposed with some witty banter and good humour.

Here's a video we captured with Mette's fancy pants new mobile phone.

the big lunch...sort of

Lilian went to visit Anabelle today; of course us parents went along too. We were meant to go to a "Big Lunch" on a nearby street. But as none of us have been to a Big Lunch before we got a bit lost and confused and hurried past opting to go to the pub instead (no bad choice). This is Lilian's first time in a pub and even though Mummy made her wear a massive hat she enjoyed herself thoroughly as did Daddy who got to meet Anabelle's Mum Ida and Dad Daniel for the first time.

Apparently Lilian is going to show Anabelle and Ida around the aquarium at the Horniman museum in the near future. She is an expert after all.

daddy hearts cycling

A couple of weekends ago I cycled from London to Brighton in aid of the British Heart Foundation and managed to raise £661.28. It was a great day even though I got a bit sun burned whilst waiting for Stuart (my big brother) to turn up. Lilian was born with a heart condition that she's still fighting to keep under control so I thought it was apt to combine helping Lilian and my love of odd looking shorts.

it's all about the smiles

Lilian is getting better at the smiling thing. She loves to smile at about 5am when she gets up. i think she's laughing at mummy and daddy as they probably look a bit worse for wear at that time in the morning. she enjoys herself though. i think daddy teaching Lilian to stick her tongue out has stuck though as if she doesn't fancy a smile she poke her tongue out instead. Lilian is also a great talker and can often be found chatting away in her own imitable way.
