Good Afternoon Baby Girl,
You have been unwell this week due to one of your molars coming through. You tried to be your happy normal self in the day time but most things made you sad. At night you would sleep through but cry out in pain. I felt so sad for you that we went walking in the Botanical Gardens and I got you your first vanilla ice cream. I thought you would spill it but you did not miss a single drop. It was an impressive performance.
You helped Dad with the gardening – one rock at a time.
And you decided that you enjoyed wearing only socks with your nappy.
You made a recovery towards the end of the week and by Saturday you were back to your happy little self. Since then we have been at our beach shack and you love it there with Nonna and Poppy Roo.
You are such a little beach baby that it is hard to get you out of the water. Nonna said she has never seen a baby who walks straight towards the water and into the waves. Nothing worries you.
We have also been shopping and bought some cute little outfits from your favourite shop – Baby Sesame.
You went swimming with Dad in the tea-tree lake and each night you are so exhausted that you lead us to your cot and point that you want to go to bed!
We have the obligatory Babycinos down the street. And you love to have some of my green juice. You have taught yourself to put Tilly on a lead and never stop pottering l. You are one very busy bub (well when you are awake anyway)!
And today I have left you in the caring and capable hands of Nonna and Poppy Roo for three days while Dad and I work. I have never left you for that long and it was very sad this morning.
I am sure you will have the time of your life but I can’t wait to give you a cuddle on Thursday.
Always be positive, loyal and authentic my Love.
Good Morning Baby Girl,
It has been a long time since I have written a post! I have been back at work part time for 4 months and you have had your first birthday. We made it through the first year!
You had a wonderful birthday party with ponies and face painting. Daddy is worried that you will now want a pony to keep in our backyard!
Your baptism was the very next day and you were extremely well behaved. You actually wanted to swim in the bowl of water. You were surrounded by only the closest of friends for this special ceremony.
Christmas was beautiful. We spent it with family and friends while staying with Nonna and Poppy Roo.
Grandpa John and your great Nanny were also there and loved the many special moments with you.
You were given a teepee from Nonna and Poppy Roo and you enjoy reading and relaxing in there on the panda seat that Aunty A gave to you for Christmas.
You also very much enjoyed your walks to the beach each morning and spent your time in the waves under the close supervision from myself or Nonna.
You started walking just after your first birthday and now you don’t crawl at all. You are very independent and love understanding how things work.
You have 5 teeth but have been getting another one at the front and a molar at the back for the past week or so. You are in pain but continue to be happy in the daytime and only get upset at times during the night.
You are an incredible little human and I love watching you grow each and every day.
And soon you will have a baby brother. He is due to arrive at the end of March (2016). I know you will be a wonderful big sister.
Being back at work part time has been interesting but of course I miss you and can’t wait to see you when I get home from work each day. It is difficult to manage work on top of everything else particularly when Daddy is away but we all manage.
All my Love (and I promise to try to be more consistent this year with my posts!)
