My fairy girl-princess-honey bunch-cutie pie is 20 months old already and an update about her is definitely overdue.
This child drops my jaw to the floor on such a regular basis. She is incredible. She is such a happy girl – laughing and smiling from when she opens her eyes in the morning until she goes to sleep at night. She is helpful and already does simple tasks like putting her nappies in the nappy bin on request, throwing junk in the bin, she takes her own bowls to the sink when she’s finished with it etc.
She still does a whole lot of baby-talk, but I can hear a lot of new words coming through. Her favourites are “bye julle”, na-na, her word for sweets, mamma, and I love how she calls herself Shae-Shae. Oh she likes saying baba too, she adores other babies and points them out when she sees them.
We moved her over to a new daycare the beginning of the year and it’s going extremely well. I love the vibe at the place, lots of happy kiddies, the teachers are amazing and I love that they keep you up to date by sending Whatsapp messages and run an updated Facebook page. By the way, all the photos published in this post is all pictures I have received from the owner of the daycare.
The past month was rotten with regards to health. Shae had a terrible ear infection that took 2 antibiotic courses to clear up. She also had the tummy bug earlier this week. She also cut her two top canines. So lots of bad nights again.
My baby grew up. After 20 months of breastfeeding, she decided on her own that it’s time to stop mommy’s milk. I am blessed that we had a great breastfeeding journey. With Jamie it was not so easy as we had latching trouble and I gave up after 9 months. This time around everything went perfect, she latched like a champ from the beginning and it was smooth sailing all the way. No soreness ever, no trouble. I am happy that it was not necessary to wean her, that she did this all by herself so it was not traumatic at all. Perhaps just a bit of heart soreness for me, it means that my time being a baby-mommy is over… soon it will be time to start planning a birthday party for a little princess.
