Reasons to be cheerful – week 9

It’s been a couple of weeks since I joined up with this, but I found myself with 20 minutes to spare so thought I’d get a post written quickly. I’m going to stick with just the one reason to be cheerful this week though because quite honestly nothing else is needed to cheer me up.

This is my reason to be cheerful:

In the space of 2 weeks Matilda has gone from thinking about crawling to being a little speed merchant. It is truly hilarious watching her explore the house for the first time, giggling and squealing as she discovers each new thing and shooting us a cheeky glance when she knows she’s being naughty. I’m sure the novelty will wear off to be replaced by frustration as she yet again takes everything out of the cupboard but for now its all smiles and laughter in the fools household.
