Ah….I think I say this every week – you were born to try us! You are fiercely independent and will listen to nobody. Whilst I love your independent streak, it is exhausting to be argued with all day every day! You have learnt this week the hard way that committing to something may mean that you have to sacrifice other fun opportunities that come up. You have been doing lots of exciting things at school and are loving life at the moment! Baby Sprout
You have been really poorly with chicken pox which I was absolutely gutted that you caught so young. You were very good though and only suffered badly for a couple of days. Now we are just waiting for the scars to fade. You are crawling and cruising everywhere now – there is no stopping you! You are navigating the steps in the house and you prefer to be standing up if you can. You are constantly keeping me on my toes and quite frankly I’m exhausted keeping up with you! You won’t play with any toys but you prefer to play with wires and other things you shouldn’t have – like the tiles out of the fireplace!
Your confidence has grown so much in the last few months. Where once you were a scared little thing, too afraid to even go on a swing, now you charge around the playground with glee – and today you went down the big slide in soft play! It is so lovely to see you grow and gain some self assurance. You have been very tired also though and are very ready for a summer break. You can get very whiny when you are tired so I am hoping you rest lots in the holidays!
