Happy 22 Months!

Miss E turned 22 months old yesterday. The past month has been a real mix of exploring, laughter, learning, minimal sleep and tantrums.... oh, so many tantrums!
We've baked cakes together, enjoyed many trips out, played in the garden and cuddled up and fallen asleep together. She's super generous with hugs and kisses for mummy and her sense of humour is amazing! I love that we can have mini conversations now and I love that she understands so much of what is going on around her. She's always alert, always questioning what everything is and very determined to understand how things work. 


Here's what she's been up to over the past few weeks....

Sleep - The past few weeks have seen a real change to Miss E's sleep. All of a sudden we are seemingly back to late nights and incredibly early starts with lots of night-time waking! We've all been feeling pretty frazzled because of it recently and we're not sure of the cause of it all (new teeth or a development leap maybe!). We're hoping it passes soon and she starts sleeping better again soon!


Doing - Climbing anything and everything! She's really into climbing frames and slides at the moment so the park is the perfect place to be. She loves painting and making sandcastles, decorating cakes and looking for animals. Running and dancing are two activities she loves to practice at the moment and she's super ace at the actions for "Heads, shoulders, knees and toes" and "Incy wincy spider".
Miss E is sure of what she wants and always wants to do things by herself with no help from mummy or daddy! This makes bath time, getting ready in the morning and crossing roads safely really interesting at the moment (ahem!).

Saying - Miss E is picking up more than a few words each day now. Her vocabulary is vast and she's amazing at stringing words together, especially if it's to tell us what she wants.... "no home, stay park" for example. 


Eating - Miss E has such a good appetite recently and is a real breakfast lover at the moment. She'll try most things, especially if we are out at a restaurant. She has realised I carry round a bag full of snacks ("nacks!") when we go out and and won't hesitate to ask me for what she wants. Her favourite foods this month are bananas, bread/toast, cheese and chicken.  

Likes - answering "no!" to every question we ask her (!), dancing, playing with cars and her toy pram, sticker books, Disney Tsum Tsums, going out to the park or on day trips, reading books, sandpits, being tickled, kisses and cuddles, napping in mummy and daddy's bed, helping with the dog and being tucked up at night with her teddies.   

Dislikes - Sleeping, bath time and getting her hair wet!


Happy 22 months, my princess!
