Week 80

It’s been a week of lots of travel, lots of playing and lots of new skills. A few chances to play on equipment and in playgrounds is showing us how ready PlusOne is to try new things.

Her vocabulary continues to grow – and she’s started telling (or retelling) us stories from her day – a word at a time. She’s also started mimicking our actions. One particularly lovely moment was watching her mimic mum sitting cross-legged reading a book. Super cute.

Week 79

It’s been a week where we’ve felt like our little girl is getting all grown up. More words, more attitude, greater willingness to try new things – she’s expanding her world in leaps and bounds.

This is exciting, but also a little scary.

But we’re loving that we get to witness it, and be a part of it.

Week 78

It’s been an interesting week this week – as we’ve headed firmly into the territory of strong willed opinions and occasional tantrums. You wouldn’t believe it from her gorgeous face – but she can pull it out when she wants to :)

PlusOne has been working hard at stringing her words together. This afternoon on the car trip home from Sydney, Mum was regaled with recollections of all the things PlusOne had done in the day. It’s a bit cute.

Week 77

A week with lots of travelling – PlusOne has had a blast. Lots of hanging out with her Cousin A has been lots of fun as well – she keeps asking each day if she can see her.

PlusOne’s personality continues to develop – which is resulting in many charming and lovely traits – along with some less desirable ones we are needing to get used to dealing with. Lucky she’s adorable :)

Week 76

Another week, and PlusOne continues to grow. As she’s become more mobile (and more forthright) her interactions with Pixel have been increasing – she can now (almost) give as good as she gets. It’s great to watch them testing each other out for their boundaries, and having a blast.

Mum & Dad had their first proper ‘date night’ during the week – putting PlusOne down to sleep at Auntie K & Uncle D’s place before going to see Wicked at the theatre. It was very strange to be out just the two of us – but very nice as well.

PlusOne is in a bit of a sleep regression at the moment – so very restless through the night, and waking up extra early. We’re hoping this is something that doesn’t last very long :)

Week 75

A week of many advancements – it seems like PlusOne is going in leaps and bounds. She’s now very firm about when she wants to do something – which manages to be both adorable and a bit of a challenge.

Her love for Cricket continues, along with her love for listening to records (Dad is stoked on both counts). At the moment she’s also enjoying building towers with blocks, Chasing mum and dad, and demanding we walk with her at every opportunity.

Week 74

Our gorgeous PlusOne turned 17 months old today. It’s flown by so fast and we’ve enjoyed every minute of it.

Her vocabulary is growing daily and her personal interactions with loved ones (and strangers) melts our hearts.
We are so thankful for her and her beautiful heart.

In other news, her temper and stubbornness are also growing… We are not looking forward to further development in those areas.

Now… Onto the photos. Continue Reading →

Week 73

This week life started to return a little more back to normal. A lot more time playing at home but still time for some excursions out and about.

PlusOne has turned into a real mimic over the last couple of weeks – always ready to talk to us and repeat what we’ve just said. It has also meant her vocabulary is growing rapidly.

Now, onto the photos…

Week 72

Another week full of friends, family and fun. Lots of time spent with the Fam at Austinmer, hanging with cousins, aunts and uncles. Swimming in the pool was a bit chilly, but lots of fun. PlusOne has continued enjoying her independent mobility – walking around the house and finding things to get into.

PlusOne was in bed by 6pm o New Year’s Eve while Mum & Dad hung with the family and had a great time. Sadly she decided that 5:30am was a great time to wake up. We disagreed.

In fact – since NYE morning wakeups have been VERY early. So there’s been lots of early morning trips out for walks to wait until it was a reasonable hour. We are hoping (a lot) that this is only a short term thing.

Week 71

Christmas has come and gone. PlusOne has had an absolute blast hanging out with her cousins from both sides of the family. The combination of lots of people around, and here new found walking skills has meant lots of wandering to find people to chat to and give things.

She has quite enjoyed unwrapping presents, and also playing with the paper once things are unwrapped.

It’s been a fun week, but pretty chilled with lots of hanging out – so I’ll let the photos tell the rest of the story…
