So now my little angel is about 19months – that’s 1year 6months and 2weeks to be exact. Wow, did I just say that? How time has seriously flown by and I have no idea how we got here to be honest.
Here are some things she loves to do: sing (loves twinkle little star and ABC), hum songs/music, dance, draw, giving hi 5s, hugging, talking, playing at the park (loves the swing especially), drawing, puzzles, painting, talking on the phone, randomly calls people from my phone
In the last couple weeks we’ve noticed a huge improvement in her vocabulary and to be honest I think it’s because I talk to her a lot like how I would to any adult, also a bit of tv and music. Here are words she can or almost say properly: daddy, mummy, papa, mama, nanna, sky, plane, moon, hot, please, thanks, I love you, bye, hi, how are you, where are you, what, what’s that, that, no mama/daddy, more, scissors, peach, apple, honey, shoe shoe, eyes, nose, mouth, knee, toes, bed, teddy, gone, oh no, num num, uncle, Aunty, door, hug me.
She has 4teeth coming out all at once but luckily she’s not in any pain. Her sleeping routine is some days good and some days bad. However she’s been sleeping well for her day nap: at least 1.5hrs sleep to 2.5hrs sleep. A few days ago she slept for 3.15hrs which was awesome. She’s been sleeping in a bed now for about a month and though at first I regret it because she kept climbing out at night to coming to our room, I secretly love it at the same time – even if it means lack of sleep. I know that 10years from now I will look back at this time and think that it was one of the best moments we had.
She hasn’t started daycare yet but will soon in October. I’m contemplating on whether or not she really needs to go but well see what happens.
Terrible 2s? Not sure if we’ve reached it yet because she does misbehave sometimes. It’s not that bad an it doesn’t last long. We’ve found that we can distract her with singing or a hug or something she likes. It does upset me though when she misbehaves, but lucky I have a comforting husband who always reminds me that it’s really ok and it’s not the end of the world. She’s just a baby and it’s just a phase.
We love her soo much regardless and love each day when she learns something new! Can’t believe she’s almost 2!!!!
