So with all the Wedding Planning, Holiday and run up to our big fat Bavarian Wedding i took a step back from blogging so my monthly post about MM got lost. (My last one was when she just turned 15 month) With her getting older now i decided that i will probably post less frequently about it.
So she will be 20 month in a couple of days and she has done such a massive leap not only from the growing perspective (she got rather tall just like Finn at her age) but also on every other aspect of her development. They do say second children always grow up quicker and that’s exactly how it feels to us!
She of course was my little flower girl on our Wedding and gosh didn’t she look the most adorable girl ever i know i know i am biased, but our photographer took some amazing shots of her throughout the day and my auntie capture her cheekiness brilliantly on our registry wedding a few days before look at those curls:
Talking – Her vocabulary has came on heaps and next to a few new German words like Papa (Daddy), Fee (Fairy), heiss (hot), da (there), aua (ouch), Nein (no), she now comes out with: more, there, sorry, yes, spider and baby (i am sure i forgot some but those are the most regular ones)
Tidying up – She still a big fan of tidying up but also tidying out my handbag, whenever i leave one for her to reach she’s pretending to put it on her shoulder and walk around with it before starting to take each and every item out of the bag to inspect.
Pushchair Mad already?? – She finally found her love to pushchairs and loves nothing better then climbing into them to go for a ride. Only took her 1.5 years to realise its actually fun. She even takes a nap in it and her favourite bit is when i bring a buggy inside she insist to be pushed into the living room so she can watch TV whilst sitting inside it!
Favourite Toys – Charley Bear, Upsy Daisy, her Dolly and her Smart Stages Puppy from Fisher Price are her current favourites.
Sleeping Routine – We already got most of the items we need to decorate her big girls room but the croup came between us and moving her out of our bed into her very own single bed. So we will co sleep for another few weeks and hopefully after we come back from Germany we can settle her into her own room!
Teething – We nearly got the full set! Yay i can only spot 4 teeth missing but all of her back ones are out its just some of the ones on the side who are yet to pop up and say hello! We are still very much fan of the Amber Anklet and actually gave MMs Baby sized ones to my brother and his girlfriend who are expecting there first baby in a couple of weeks!
Likes/Dislikes – She loves nothing better then tapping on my leg to indicate she wants to come up for a cuddle and a kiss. Dancing is her favourite thing to do all day long, when there is a song on the radio in the kitchen, in the car, on telly she starts doing her Irish dancing routine with stomping her legs up and down its so cute to watch!
As soon as she finds a hat she needs to put it on and walk around the house with it, i never seen a child willing enough to put a hat on herself and keep it up there (until a better one is found in the hat box next to the front door of course!)
She is eating like a Horse right now, it doesn’t matter what you put in front of her she will just demolish it in seconds BUT she needs to eat it herself with or without a spoon she wants to be in depended (and messy at the same time!)
Highchairs and Car seats are just the pain of her life she doesn’t like to be in them and tries it all to get out of them as quickly as possible.
When somebody leaves the house and doesn’t let her come with them than she can get really upset and she is very particular when it comes to the way she wants to walk to the car. I always go the safe route through our front garden walkway onto the driveway but little miss is heading straight for the front gate along our little garden wall to the driveway.
Oh and did i tell you she is a (very lovable) Nutter? Just like her Brother and Father:
