Phoebe has been entertaining us for 18months now. In recent months even more so. The third child is born into such a different household. I am amazed at the dynamics and differences in the development between my first and third child. I'm sure it's not simply their personalities but their environment must play a huge part.

For all of you who love Phoebe and are missing out on hearing her learn to talk. Mark suggested I publish her current words with translations, which I thought was a kind of cool idea. Here are her latest. No need to feel left out anymore!!!!!
