2011 has been quite a year for our children in many ways. Firstly Sue got preggers in (or around) March and spent the rest of the year getting larger and tireder. Emily celebrated her third birthday in March as well.
Emily also started her Dragonflies school in September, which has been a godsend.
Lastly, we welcomed Holly Grace into our little family only days ago (26th December).
Through the year, Emily has started to gain her own voice and personality. Things she used to do as a matter of us asking she now questioned and pushed back on (mostly food related). She also figured out how to be moody and angry and sulk (the number of times I've had to recently pick her screaming body off the floor in a shop, etc. are too numerous to count) ... and basically do all the terrible two things a child does at the age of two, a year late.
Emily still hasn't got around to accepting Holly, but that will come. I've taken great pains to ensure that Emily doesn't feel left out, and hopefully 2012 will prove to be quite a year for both our children.
