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.

Now, onto the photos… Continue Reading →

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 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.

Now onto the photos… Continue Reading →

More fun and friends this week. Mum has been looking after Z a couple of days for the last few weeks, so he and Esme have been doing lots of fun things together. The long weekend has also meant hanging out with lots of family. Notable mentions included:

  • Lots of fun craft
  • Fun visiting Aunti E, Uncle D and R & H (and lots of others) at PY Winter Camp
  • Visiting Cobbity markets and getting a new poncho
  • Having dinner with the adults at Austi (and special ice cream from Mama)
  • A few restless evenings resulting in some bonus couch cuddles
