Week 69

Christmas came early this week – with an early celebration with Dad’s family. This meant a sleepover at the grandparentals house, and lots of fun playing with Aunts, Uncles and Cousins. We also caught the train into the city to see UG sing in the David Jones Christmas Carols.

Now, onto the photos…

Week 68

It’s been a week of movement this week. We officially have walking – but very quickly PlusOne has discovered it is far more efficient to still crawl and has gone back to doing that more often than not. She does, however, like going for a walk when holding our hands – so there’s been a lot of that.

She’s also developed a love for clambering and climbing things – and continues to surprise us with the height of things she can scale.

She is turning into an avid “reader”. Our house is filled with constant requests for ‘story? story?’ Sometimes she’s happy to read to herself, but more often than not it is far more interesting to have mum or dad read :)

Now, onto the photos…

Week 67

Another week has gone by, and our little girl continues to come into her own. I’ve always wondered how parents could understand what their kids were saying when it mostly sounded like garbled sounds – but now I get it. PlusOne is now very able to communicate what she does and doesn’t want to do.

She’s turning into a bit of a chompy monster. A few teeth came through in the last couple of weeks, and there are more coming through now – but she is soldiering on through it.

She’s been quite enjoying the time we have been spending at Austinmer – lots of playing on the furry carpet, and on the grass outside.

Week 65 + 66

Another double-whammy post this fortnight. Summer has arrived with a vengeance – and so has the introduction of the hat and sunglasses – a concept with varied approval. PlusOne also had her first swim/paddle at the beach. Despite the weather being very warm, the water was still very cold – so it was’t the most succesful attempt.

Sleeptime is getting shorter through the day – so playtime and activities are getting more varied. She’s very much come into her own in terms of communication an letting us know what she does/doesn’t want to do.

Now, onto the photos… Continue Reading →

Week 64

PlusOne continues to develop her personality in leaps and bounds. She’s now very happy to tell us what she does and doesn’t want (as best as she is able) and can be quite vocal about it. Her vocabulary is increasing hugely and she spends most of her day chatting to herself (or us).

With a mouth full of teeth coming through,  it’s been a little bit of a restless week – but she’s a trooper.

Now, onto the photos…

Week 63

A post on time this week :)
Last week Dad had a conference up in Sydney – so we had a week of travelling up and back. PlusOne has gotten much better at car travel – so that wasn’t as difficult as it might once have been.

A brand new smile has emerged (as you’ll witness below) – and it is incredibly cute. PlusOne continues to be very firm about what she does & doesn’t want, which is a brand new challenge for us. She continues to find new ways to play with her toys, and has started putting things in and out of cups, rolling her ball around so she can chase it, and even figured out how to use her panda puppet.

Now…. onto the photos.

Week 61+62

Oops – we missed a week. But rest assured there are twice as many photos this week.

Our gorgeous girl is quickly becoming her own person. Complete with temper and voice. We are surprised how quickly she has grown up and excited to see what happens next.

She is standing independently and will walk holding on. We are pretty sure it won’t be long till there’s running around, although she’s very fast on all fours already!

Now. Onto all the photos

Week 60

It’s been a week away from home this week – lots of time spent at hospital (visiting family), at Austinmer, and at grandparent’s places.

PlusOne has turned into quite a chatterbox, and is starting to mimic just about anything we say – it is particularly cute. She’s also started accidentally standing up on her own – but once she realises she is doing it she sits down very quickly.

Now, onto the photos…

Week 59

An interesting week this week – lots of car travel and disrupted routine – but PlusOne has handled it all like a trooper. Since coming back from Melbourne she has been so much better with car travel – which has certainly come in handy.

She’s turning into a real little chatterbox – taking any opportunity to mimic what people are saying, and have a conversation. It’s certainly very entertaining.

We had lots of fun in the pool at Austi on Sunday – despite the water being a little chilly. It’s going to be great to get in the pool with PlusOne more and more as the weather warms up.

Week 58

This week we present a BUMPER double post.

The three of us had a great time down in Melbourne last week – PlusOne included. A new house to explore, new sights to see, and a few new tastes at fun cafes.

She was remarkably well behaved on the plane, and even decided that she was going to be ok with sleeping in the car, and in her stroller.

We also had a fun trip to Sydney Aquarium, where she LOVED looking at all the fish. It turns out she loves sharks almost as much as mum does.

Enough talking – you’ve got plenty of photos to look at….
