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.
