Thank you

Who've also had another wonderful language development: Bee has gone from saying 'baba' to 'baby'! We're so thrilled with that as it's a real progression for her. Well done Bee!

We were sooo sooo exicted when Sophie finally started to be able to say the "ee" sound. I was in hospital the week she finally learnt to say "mummy" instead of "mama" - it was the best hospital visit ever!! Just ypu wait, now that she has "baby", "mummy" amd "daddy" won't be far off - so so exciting - well done Bee!
