22 months

Dear my favourite girl,

On Sunday, when it was exactly 2 months until you are 2, I had a bit of an argh moment. How is it this close to your second birthday already?! (And what are we going to give you for your birthday?!)

It's clear we're looming closer to toddler tantrum territory. The episodes of 'NOOOOO NO NO NO' are gaining frequency - we're having to try very hard to keep a straight face at times. 

At 22 months old you are...

Loving: Baby, Mog, going to the swings, wearing your new hat, reading 'Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush', cheese, rolling, dogs, cats, lions, singing The Wheels on the Bus and Old Macdonald - and suggesting animals for each verse, trains, helicopters, aeroplanes, drawing, painting, playing with beads, stickers, raspberry jam, spotting colours, watching Sarah and Duck. 

Not liking: Going in the pushchair when you want to walk, having your nappy changed. 

Favourite words: mummm  dada, down, deddy, baybeeee, gone, bah (bunny), baa (sheep), brmmm, shoes, keys, cheese, zip, drink, swing, zzzz (bee buzz), raa raa (the noisy lion, but has come to mean all things tv!), round and round, maooo (cow), bubub (bubbles), bang!, ball, bowl, tea, tree, dihdih (digger), titch, stih (sticker), nee-nah, train, choochoo, meeoowwww, nee-nah, scheeee (sleep), bee bees (blueberries), big, grrrr (yes!), mohhhh (no), jeeee (green, or any other colour), manma (grandma), daada (grandad), dar (star), bobper (popper or bubble), bees (beads), boon (spoon), Gggge (George), Bibby (your friend), ub (up), nam nam nam (eating), O O (Auntie H), Tate (Auntie K), boo (blue), lellow, lady, door, bin, ahhh (cuddle), uh uh (monkey), hu hu (woof), dog, elephant noise, buck buck (chicken), ee ee (mouse), dair (hair), toosch (toes), 
schiim (swim), duck.


  1. Such a beauty your girl, love those curls. Such precious times x

  2. This is beautiful, such a gorgeous way to remember your little one x

    1. Thank you - I'm so glad that I've kept it up, it's lovely to look back on! x

  3. Great bathrobe picture. :) The tantrums are already here at 17 months - she can't actually say "no" yet, but she gets the point across!

    1. Clever how they can do that isn't it?! She loves her dressing gown - it's so snuggly! x

  4. Always so beautifully dressed! Even in her little robe she looks adorable! And so clever too!

    Nearly two is SCAREY isn't it? I think I'll probably have the same argh used before long!

  5. It IS scary - time is marching by at an alarming rate! Surely our littles were only newborns five minutes ago?! And thanks - I may be biased, but I think she's adorable too! (And we're very lucky that we get lots of lovely hand me down clothes!) x


Hello! I'd love to hear from you so drop me a note! x
