Dear baby boy,
So what have you been doing these last couple of months? Well, you know so many words now. You are particularly good at two syllable words that end in -ble or -ple such as pebble, purple and bubble. You say ‘more’ a lot, especially at meal times and like saying diiiiirrrttyy when you have some mud on your hands. You love saying ‘Gooooooorrrrr’ for George, as in George from Peppa Pig, and still mutter ‘yeah!’ with such excitement. You are coming out with random words each day. This morning you said ‘hippo’ for the first time and you are now beginning to link words together. The first time you joined two words was when you said ‘Daddy work’. This month you have also suddenly advanced in distinguishing between colours. You know blue, red, yellow, purple and black. I thought you were just guessing at first but nope you can say them and spot them! You are so cheeky & clever!
Amazingly your temper tantrums have subsided (result!) as long as I have food, a toy or a lot of patience and energy nearby, which is sometimes easier said than done! However, your impatience has taken a turn for the worse (you get that after your father)! When you are in your buggy if I so much as stop for a second you start crying/complaining because you want to get on and see your pushchair wheels spinning! You are also the same at meal times. If I don’t have the food right there when you want it you cling onto my leg and demand I give you the uncooked food! Snacks have become my saviour.
