We have just spent 6 whole weeks together whilst I have been off work for the school summer holidays.
And you are coming on so much!
Every day you seem to do something new which makes me smile from ear to ear and fills my heart with pride.
When we make you something to eat, you take yourself off to your table and sit waiting for us to bring it through ☺️
The other day, as we were walking into the house, you suddenly started having a mini meltdown (which by the way are becoming a common occurrence 🙄).
Screaming and shouting. Arching your back. You are so loud for such a little thing!
Me and Daddy had no idea what was wrong.
Daddy asked you, ‘Jessie, what is wrong?’ To which you replied, ‘straw straw!’ whilst enthusiastically pointing at a punnet of strawberries on the kitchen side. 🍓🍓🍓
We have never even taught you that word…
What a clever little girl you are becoming 😘
I love seeing the look of excitement on your face when you have managed to say a word which I understand. ‘Do-do’ (for your dummy) and ‘drink’ are probably the two words I hear most in the day. Oh and ‘one more, one more!’ with your little pointy finger held up ☺️
You are a little night owl and do not want to go to bed at the moment. As I’m writing this letter it is 10.50pm and Daddy has finally managed to get you in your cot!
It’s like you don’t want to miss out on anything… my friends all call you the party animal 🎉
This is the look we get when you don’t want to do what we have asked you to! 😂
It is perhaps a little bit my fault, I should have tried harder with your ‘bedtime routine’. You are such a happy little thing though, so we must be doing something right.
You love being outdoors, climbing and going on adventures.
And you just want to copy everything we do… putting keys in locks, putting Daddy’s deodorant on, playing with Mummy’s make up… 😠
Speak soon my baby girl,
All my love,
Me-me (as you affectionately call me at the moment 💕)
P.s. You can blame Nanny Berny for this photo 😝 She looked after you yesterday and when you saw the potty in the cupboard you said ‘wee wee’ and insisted on sitting on it! Maybe we’ll start potty training soon?! 😂
