Week 53

Our first week with a one-year-old has now passed. PlusOne is getting more independent, and a lot more prepared to let us know her opinion on things she does or doesn’t like. We’re definitely starting to see a little bit of an attitude develop.

Most of the time, though, she is incredibly well natured. We’ve had a lot of days up in Sydney (and out and about) and she’s been a real trooper with lots of car trips and broken routines.

She continues to enjoy music (particularly Colin Buchanan) and starts to bop around as soon as she can hear music of any kind. Singing is sometimes attempted – with varying level of success :)

Now, onto the photos…

Week 52 (+ a day)

An extra day this week – as today we celebrated PlusOne’s first birthday!!!

We can hardly believe it has been a year that she has been on the outside – and it has been wonderful. We love her more than we could have ever imagined.

We had a great time celebrating with friends and family over the weekend -and PlusOne had a great time. We also had lots of fun today celebrating her actual birthday.

Now, onto the photos…

Week 51

The theme of this week has been ‘cuddles’. On the plus side – we’ve both been getting lots of them – both when asking for them and at impromptu times.

On the less-good side it has meant someone has become a little clingier especially at bedtimes.

She’s also been getting a little clearer with some of her noises – woofing and meowing and ta-ing.

Week 50

Another week closer to a one year-old in the house.
There is more moving, more stubbornness, more cuddles and definitely more smiles.
It feels like she’s changing daily into this gorgeous little person.

Week 49

Another week has passed – another week getting scarily closer to 1 year old.

Movement is getting quicker, and going further – she even made it all the way into the kitchen from the lounge in one effort.

Lots of floor time and playing, as well as visiting lots of people – it’s been a fun week.

Week 48

This week PlusOne turned 11 months old. We can hardly believe that in less than a month she will be a year old – utter craziness.

The first half of our week was very busy – getting around and seeing lots of people – then it got a little quieter. PlusOne continues to refine her crazy smile – much to our amusement.

Week 47

Lots of fun things happening this week. We had a little mini-break up in Sydney so there was lots to see and do. The week started with PlusOne deciding that crawling wasn’t enough excitement, and it was much more fun to stand up and cruise around her playpen. She’s now moving freely around the place – but seems led by desire to reach certain things, rather than to explore more generally.

Being away has meant sleeping in the portacot – which has thankfully gone really well. PlusOne has surived well with much car travel as we’ve been going around the place – and has also got to catch up with a lot of people.

A day at the park with T, R, E & O saw PlusOne have her first go on a swing, as well as some other fun play equipment – she seemed to quite enjoy it. She also got up close and personal with some very inquisitive Rosellas.

Now… onto the photos.

Week 46

Well it finally happened. We now have deliberate autonomous movement – PlusOne can officially crawl. It took a while of backwards movement, and rocking back and forth – but there is no denying her now. Thankfully she isn’t too speedy yet, and seems very task oriented (trying to get specific things) rather than filled with a desire to explore. I’m sure that will change.

As PlusOne has been trying (and getting used to) a wider range of solid finger foods, we’ve had a couple of incidents where something has gone down the wrong way and she has had to … er… clear her throat… Once such incident was today. But this time the dog took interest (as dog’s do) and when she had a second go – poor pixel got caught in the crossfire. Not much fun for mum to clean up.

A car accident for dad (everyone is fine) meant a new car seat fit into a loaner car (thanks S&K) which PlusOne seems to think is pretty great.
