Mummy's having a baby!! I'm so excited - I've always wanted to be a big sister. I can't wait to hold her in my arms. Mike said that I wouldn't be able to, when I told him about my fantasy, but I know I can! I will.

Yesterday I went for some more physiotherapy on my legs and it really hurt. She said it would make me feel better and Mummy said it would too, so I kept smiling while she pushed me and pulled at my muscles. My back is so sore - my hips have been pressing on my knees, and everything is connected so mum said I have to keep doing my exercises to help it. I hate being in a wheelchair sometimes. It gets me good advantages over other people though - I can get to the front of queues and everyone wants to talk to me! I can't wait to be a big sister and show the baby how to do everything.

I want to teach it how to walk - and say my name as its first word! That would be so cool. I want to call her Rosie. My friend's doll is called that! That way I can remember her everytime I see the baby. Oh, wait - what if it's a boy? Joseph. I like that name too.
