I just don’t know where this month has gone, it only seems like yesterday we had returned from Portugal and you turned twenty one months.
In a month that has brought sadness to our family, you have been my little ray of light. You are such a happy little girl that you make everyone smile when they are around you. You and your sister have got me through the last couple of weeks, more than you will ever know.
You are becoming a little chatterbox, just like your sister and I love hearing your little voice. I think my favourite is “where daddy gone”… It still amazes how well you speak at this age and it is definitely easier now we understand each other.
Playing with your babies is still your favourite thing to do and you are so loving to them, it’s beautiful to watch.
And of course your sister is still your favourite person, when you are reunited you literally run to her saying “miss you Alice”, its so cute. I do wonder how you will cope when she is at school everyday and that day is approaching fast.
You two really are chalk and cheese, which I just love, but you compliment each other perfectly. I adore watching you two together.
We have seen a little bit of progress with your food at dinner time, you are now eating chicken pie and pasta. Thankfully not together! I know you will get there eventually and luckily you love breakfast and lunch.
The second you are outside you are off and quite often you don’t look back for mummy, knowing that I will never be far behind. But inside, when you are around people that you don’t know you cling to me as if your life depended on it. Then you gradually warm up and detach yourself from me, usually about five minutes before we have to leave.
As I start planning your birthday party with your sister I look at you and think back to when you were my little baby in my arms. You are my last baby and it really has gone far too quickly. But, then I am also loving getting to know you so much, your character shines through…
