  • Loves to nap for around two hours a day (hallelujah)
  • Isn’t great at sharing, one for you, three for her!
  • Doesn’t like vegetables (surprise surprise)
  • Asks to be strapped into high chairs if we forget! (Often she un-clips herself shortly after though!)
  • Weighs almost 14Kg
  • Likes to run her hands over cars wheel arches, and to pick up clumps of mud
  • Loves Owls
  • Never turns down a ‘yokyok’ (yoghurt) or a ‘Bicbic’ (biscuit)
  • Can run like the wind, especially if it is toward danger!
  • Wakes up from her naps all sleepy and hot and sticky
  • Has realised she can let herself out of her bedroom (& into ours!)
  • Can tilt the bowl to spoon all of the milk out, no matter how long it takes
  • Is starting slowly to string words together
  • Has hair that never does what its told!
  • Soaks the whole bathroom every time she has a bathIMG_1391
  • Likes to get right up in the camera lens!
  • Makes a fuss when I put her in the but loves it once she’s there
  • Loves to throw things around whether she should or not!
  • Loves ‘Ocklat’ (chocolate) and Macaroni Cheese
  • Will kiss her brother unprompted
  • Is obsessed with Owls
  • Likes to walk but will suddenly get tired and demand ‘UP’
  • Goes to bed or for a nap with no argument 99% of the time
  • Has been sleeping in her cotbed with the side off for two months
  • Is pretty fearless, climbs up slides and runs into the path of the zip-wire at the park
  • Likes to put on her own shoes (then often takes them off before we’e left the house!)
  • Still sucks her thumb when she’s tired
  • Is obsessed with bubbles!
  • Asks me to paint her toenails, spends an hour walking around looking at her feet then has a hissy fit till I remove the varnish!
  • Is one of the two best things I’ve ever made!
