Little H, we’ve had an awesome month doing on lots of fun activities. You have astounded me yet again by developing every day. I swear you spend more time telling me what to do than the other way round! You’ve also been testing me again so mummy has had to develop her ‘Patience’ super strength even further. But I have loved every minute of it. Well, almost 😉



> Instead of saying ‘cornflakes’ you say ‘flornflakes’. It makes me laugh every time.

> Despite me telling you over-and-over that butterflies are called just that, you prefer to call them “daddyflies” and then flapping your hand around.


> Daddy and I (amongst others) spent a large proportion of the month being told “Come here now!”. Delightful…

> When you don’t want to do something, we get told “Just two mix-its”, where I think you mean “two minutes”.

> I was holding you up so you could turn on your GroClock at bedtime. I went to remind you what to do when you turned to me and said “No speaking” and put your hand on my mouth!

Indoor Play

> There was a charity Superhero Day at nursery and you went in wearing a Superman t-shirt and took your Superman Sergii (of Compare the Meerkat fame) along with you.

> Auntie Lou-Lou gave you a balloon to take home and it was the toy du weekend. You spent ages throwing it around and shouting ‘Catch!’ whilst in peals of laughter.

> They had children trolleys in the supermarket at Center Parcs. You loved them!


> You finally let me dry your hair with a hair dryer at Center Parcs! We successfully did it a couple of times at home until you declared you didn’t like it again.

> You’ve figured out your GroClock now. When you don’t want to go to sleep you tell me the sun needs to “be up”.

> After several months of using the potty and toilet more and more, you finally made the big step into Big Girl Pants. I’m so proud of you!

Outdoor Play

> You successfully climbed a vertical ladder unaided on a climbing frame.

> We went to returned my faulty slippers, you said to the shop assistant in your most serious voice: “Mummy slippers brooken”. He was a young lad and just looked bewildered!

> Whilst chatting to our new neighbours after work one day, you ran off to the house and shut the front door on me. It is fortunate I always keep my keys on me because I, quite rightly it seems, have never trusted you with that door.


> Every sandcastle I made for you at Center Parcs was immediately knocked down. Then you started on an amazing creation another family had built once they left the beach.

> As you tell me repeatedly, after a trip to our local park farm you now no longer like tractors. You also don’t like donkeys after sitting on one for a ride at a town event…then immediately leaping off on to me.


> But you went to a Baby Owls session with daddy at Center Parcs where you had an owl land on your hand. You kept mentioning it several weeks later.

> You knocked the left indicator on in the car whilst playing driving after getting home from nursery. I didn’t notice despite checking. 3 hours later daddy noticed before bed and by then the battery was almost dead and the car wouldn’t start. Argh! Silly mummy.

Some comments:
    • Yes, I have never really experienced it until having a child of my own but I love hearing her speech evolve! Thanks for reading xx

  1. Ah so many achievements. The potty training sounds great. I love all the funny names they have for things when they little. You don’t want them to get the real ones right!! Lovely post and thanks for sharing with #bestandworst x

    • Yeh she is always so pleased to get the words right and I feel the opposite in a way! Thanks for reading xx

    • She wants one in every shop now which obviously leads to a ‘drama’ when they don’t! Thanks for reading xx

  2. What a lovely record of her right now! I love the funny things they come out with at this age – the mispronunciations are so cute! My son has always loved knocking down sandcastles too – it’s the best part apparently! Thanks for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

    • I’m glad I’m not the only parent with a child of destruction. I always think that if the Aptamil advert is right where you can see what your child is going to become (you know the one where they showed the toddler lifting their leg with the image of a ballerina?!) then my child will be in demolition… Thanks for reading xx

  3. Awwww this is so lovely. One of my favourite things about Molly is the way she pronounces certain words as its so sweet. She calls her Rice Crispies “kisspies” and she calls the shredded wheat “daddys cereal or shweat” haha. Molly is so chatty these days. Her favourite thing to say at the minute is “I want that. Please mama. I want that” for EVERYTHING!!! As demanding as the toddler years can be they are so precious aren’t they. #familyfun

    • Aww so cute. My daughter calls her daddy’s blueberry wheat ‘daddy cereal’ too. She’ll ask for “two daddy cereals please”. She and Molly sound really similar. Thanks for reading lovely xx

  4. I love it when they don’t quite say words right or they use a completely different word for something. Then suddenly one day you will notice that they have said it correctly or used the right name and a little bit of me is sad as it’s another sign they are growing up. Thank you for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

    • Yes, the day my daughter started saying “water” rather than “twarter” I think I shed a tear. Guess that’s life though… Thanks for reading xx

  5. I love these collections – they capture the details so perfectly and will be such a treasure to you all as your family grows. “Just two mix-its” really made me chuckle. Looks like you had a great time at Center Parcs! My two love the trolleys too! Thanks for sharing with #DreamTeam lovely x

    • Everytime we go shopping now she wants a little trolley. Damn you CP for setting the bar so high. Sainsbury’s and Waitrose need to up their game… Thanks for your lovely comment xx

  6. Ah these are so lovely! I especially love “just two mix-its” that made me laugh. It’s great you have written them down like this as you will forget the minutiae when she moves on from baby talk. #SharingTheBlogLove

    • That’s exactly why I started it! “Two mix-its” has been in full use this week now she’s realised we understand it. THanks for reading xx
