Emilie - Eighteen Months.

Leave a Comment

Eighteen months! I can't quite believe that Emilie is a year and a half old already. It seem over the past month or so that she has lost so many of her baby qualities and is such a little toddler now. She still has her milk before bed in a bottle, sat with me on my lap, but that is the only thing now that reminds me that just a few short months ago she was a baby. 

Daily, new words are coming from her. She has started to repeat a lot of what you say which is lots of fun! I think that, coupled with the fact that she finally started walking is helping with her temperamental nature. The past few weeks she has been so much happier in herself. Something which I never thought that I would say after sixteen months of near constant screaming. 

We had snow last night for the first time in since March/April 2013 so this morning was Emilie's first experience with the fun white stuff. I'm not sure who was more excited, me or her. I was kind of hoping that James would get a snow day from school but there just wasn't enough snow to make the schools close! 

I am loving this age.. It was my favourite with James too. Maybe because we seem to have fussy high needs babies? I'd be kind of happy to press pause right about now though.. It feels that from about now onwards time just goes faster and faster.

Happy EIGHTEEN months Boo Boo!


Catch Up!

It's been nearly a month since I've sat down here to write.. It was an intentional hiatus.. I've always been the type of person that if I can't commit to something 100% then I give up and decide not to do anything instead. Not my best personality trait but there it is.. So I didn't have time to commit 100% to my blog so instead I decided to just not write anything.. The only problem with that though is that I need to write. So here I am. My month long break over and I feel ready to throw myself back into my little space..

What's been going on around these parts?

James lost his first tooth! How in the world is he old enough for that to happen? It was wobbly for a few weeks and then one day, out it fell, just as he was about to drink a big glass of milk so I'm quite grateful that he didn't swallow it! He now has his new tooth poking through and another wobbly one. 

I have finally quit smoking! Yay! I'm on eighteen days and counting. I have my little vaporiser and although I've had tough moments, overall it's been a lot easier than I was imagining. 

I've started juicing fruit and vegetables, mainly to try and get some more nutrients into me, but also for the health benefits. I plan to do a whole post on this so I won't say too much but if you're on the fence about juicing then try a melon, apple, pineapple & strawberry juice for breakfast ;) You won't be sorry!

And that's about it.. My first post-hiatus update... It's good to be back :)
