I can remember holidays when I actually felt sluggish from too much sleep. Well that and too much food and drink. Eh, not anymore! This year’s holiday was not quite restful but good fun and a welcome getaway from the usual routine. It was also good timing as we’ve literally witnessed a transformation in our wee girl – from a bouncing baby to a little toddler girl – with an extra serving of attitude on the side!
In the space of our two week break, Missy Moo changed so much. She cut 6 more teeth. Decided she wants to only feed herself – trying her damnest to master cutlery. Was weaned off the breast with no problem whatsoever. And she’s become a bit of a bully. She’s taken to seriously goading her brother by smashing his Duplo creations the very second he finishes them. And when she thinks we’re not watching she gives him a whack, and starts screaming and pointing setting him up to get in trouble. A complete chancer!
The biggest change though is the independence. She’s a determined little lady and well able to tell, with one high-pitched squeal and a pointing finger, exactly what she wants. Though not walking on her own yet, she’s well able to cruise around the room and pull herself up on the couch / bed /table! She’s truly fearless.
She’s not a baby anymore. She’s a Lady-Baby!
