Dear bear, happy 22 months. Two months to the Big Two.
This month saw us go on our family holiday to Bordeaux. You were really excited about the trip, so much so that you stayed up all night! Which made for a very tired bear on the plane.
We spent as much time as possible down at the beach (which wasn’t too long as it fairly hot). We did come across a lovely playground set on sand! near Lacanau lake. I don’t know who had more fun – you, me or Papa!
You now know your mind more than ever. You are an extremely independent little bear and wants to do things her way.
This month also saw you fall sick. Mama and Papa took turns minding you at home whilst you recovered. It was a stressful time for all, but we pulled through. Your gums have been bothering you too, but there doesn’t seem to be sign of any new teeth.
Baby girl, you are now much happier in nursery since your recent move from the baby room to the toddler room. You get on well with your carers and your little friends in nursery.
You are quite the singer. Your favourite tunes are still Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Row Row Row Your Boat, Baa Baa Black Sheep, Yankee Doodle Came to Town, and a song you learnt in nursery, called the Hello song.
You have a lot of new words but the one that still melts my heart is Mama, which you don’t say very often! You say bed, milk, apple, book, the names of your nursery friends and carers, and today, I may have heard you say your name – it sounded like ‘Ibol’..
This time last year, our year together at home was coming to an end as we started settling you in at nursery. You were so tiny!
Happy 22 months, little girl. Mama and Papa love you very much. xxx
