Little Man is just full of milestones at the moment, his latest one is learning to climb. Little Man is no longer satisfied with just pulling himself up to standing, he now has to climb up on the furniture – Mainly LP’s armchair but he has also climbed the whole flight of stairs a couple of times too.
Little Man’s Latest Milestone
Over the last three months I’ve written about Little Man learning to sit at Christmas, learning to crawl in January and then being happy to stand when we put him up against something – his trick for February. March has brought us something new altogether. Little Man has learnt to pull himself up!
LP is 2 and a Half!
It feels like yesterday LP was born. Our gorgeous Little Pickle. Even the last 6 months since her 2nd Birthday have flown by and she has come so far since then. We’ve noticed recently how much LP’s vocabulary is expanding, how she’s losing so many of her ‘baby’ words and using the proper words for things – Mee-Mees are now monkeys, her Brother is now called by his name rather than Baby, a phone is a phone not a wo-wa, we can now differentiate between Cheese/Keys/Trees and Shoes/Juice. There are a few words that she still says that we’re hanging on to. Her Grandad is still her Yar-Yar, no idea where this came from but I think now it has stuck. I can’t see Yar-Yar ever being anything else. She also calls crumpets Crunchies and still calls Alfie dog a ‘woof woof’.
My First Time On a Train With a Pushchair
I have put off going on a train with a pushchair for as long as possible. I have always had this fear that the pushchair would end up under the train. Or I’d get stuck at the bottom of a thousand steps with a pushchair, shopping, screaming baby and surrounded by commuters. There was no way I was going on a train unless I had to!
Little Man is unstoppable. First he learnt to sit at Christmas, the following month he learnt to crawl and now all he wants to do is stand up! He can’t get to standing by himself yet but if we put him there he’ll stand with his weight firmly on his feet – He loves nothing more than standing up!
Dave Proposed 6 Years Ago!
This day, 6 years ago, Dave proposed.
We whisked me away to a Audley’s Wood Hotel in Hampshire for the weekend and we relaxed, had a lovely dinner and he asked me to marry him. I cried like I’ve never cried before and obviously said yes! He bought a ring already which fit perfectly and I then found out he’d even asked my Dad’s permission! It was perfect, but not the proposal Dave had originally planned.
I wrote no more than a couple of weeks ago how Little Man had learnt to sit up over Christmas. Well he now has a new trick up his sleepsuit – He can crawl!
Little Mr ‘Walker’
Our Little Man has been getting more and more frustrated over the last few weeks at not being able to do very much – he tries to roll but doesn’t get very far and the most mobile he has been is pivoting around in a circle on his playmat!
Today I am 29
Today is my 29th Birthday.
I don’t think we’ll be doing anything to celebrate. I don’t think I’ll get very many cards or presents either – although Dave has given me my Birthday present early – a Samsung Chromebook. The best present! It is amazing and making blogging so much easier – Dave knows how much this hobby now means to me.
LP’s 2nd Birthday Party
Bank Holiday Monday is traditionally now LP’s Birthday Party. This year was no different.
The sun was shining, the BBQ was on – courtesy of Dave, and we had a really lovely day.
