Week 106

This week we had lots of time spent at home except for a couple of outings. The terrible twos have started – with lots of little mood swings and challenges. We’re very grateful that, for the most part, PlusOne is able to verbalise what is wrong when she drops her bundle (whether it is warranted or not).

It’s challenging at times, but also great to see her independence and inner strength grow.

We’re VERY into singing at the moment – with nursery rhymes, Colin songs, church songs and Taylor Swift all getting a go. All the time. Almost incessantly.

Now, onto the photos…

Week 105

Birthday This Week!!!

This week has been another quiet one – except for the obvious :) We had a lovely day celebrating PlusOne’s 2nd birthday in a relatively low-key (but very fun way). And the weekend brought a chance to catch up with families and spend some time celebrating with them.

It was a fun week :) Now onto the photos… Continue Reading →

Week 104

It’s been another quiet week this one. Mum hasn’t been well so there’s been lots of Daddy/Daughter time – and a lot more time at home as well.

It’s meant lots more ‘helping’. Helping with cooking, helping Daddy work, helping at scripture and all sorts of other things – which has been pretty adorable.

Week 101

The second birthday draws ever closer.

This week’s major change has been a different evening routine. We now all have dinner together, and bedtime has been shifted a bit later. This has been a revelation in terms of settling for sleep – and we’ve had a week of nights with no interruptions.

We’re noticing more and more independence, and the little bit of attitude that comes with it. But on the whole she is so well behaved that even the times when she isn’t – it’s not too bad.

Week 100

100 weeks! 23 months! I can’t believe our little girl is almost 2.

But then again – she is acting more and more like she definitely is.

Lots of fun this week – catching up with friends and family. Lots of playing an excursions – it’s been fun.

Week 99

We’re coming up on a century of weeks, and then almost a second year… Its crazy.

PlusOne continues to (selectively) seek her independence. This week we graduated to sitting in ‘big girl chairs’ when we’re not at home, and also had some strong-willed discussions about who gets to scoop her dinner.

As evidenced by the photos – her personality continues to develop and she’s becoming much more expressive. Highlights this week included:

– Her first trip to the dentist
– Making new/old friends at a new cafe in Kiama
– A visit from Uncle L & Auntie Y
– New Jim & Jams (pyjamas)

Week 98

It’s been a very full week – with time spent seeing friends both new and old.

Some notable events this week:

– We’ve now pretty much graduated to normal chairs instead of high chairs
– PlusOne has started pardoning herself when she burps or has gas
– More feeding herself with cutlery – and a new LOVE of sauce

Week 97

Another week down. This one has been full of fun things but little sleep. We have really enjoyed the interaction with craft and different activities but we’ve had a backstep as far as sleep and settling goes. Overall, everyone is a little worse for wear but getting by.

Highlights this week were seeing all of her cousins and story time with her uncle, hanging out with Miss A and riding her ‘bike’ for the first time.
