Firstly. whaaaaat!? How is Tia one and a half years old already?? Who stole my newborn?? *looks at you suspiciously*
So much has changed since our last update I don’t even know where to start. So I’ll start with food.
Tia’s gone from a non fussy, will eat anything I give her to a total pain in the backside won’t eat anything. Not strictly true as she will eat…
That’s it, she doesn’t want chips, sausages, pasta, sarnies nothing. She can also clearly ask for every food listed in her “I will eat list” and I wonder if it’s linked. If she can’t ask for it, she won’t eat it? She has fruit filled shredded wheat minis. She calls them wheeties, very cute. But this food marlarkie is very frustrating. I could understand if she was teething but this just seems to be a “you can’t make me” phase so I’m riding it out!
So her speech has come on leaps and bounds. She can say clearly so many words now, I’ll try and list them all
Daddy, nanny, mummy, my, wheeties, toast, narna, raisons, shoes, fish, no, yes, Ta, please, tiger, doggy, cat, car, baby, daisy, Jess, juice, cheese, more, RAA RAA, pepper, duck, bath, slide, ball, light, boo! Kiss, dress, sock, bye.
She still says “as sat” like a question, what is that. She now also says “ei is!” To show where something is. This is especially cute when you ask her where Tia is and she points at her chest and screams whilst grinning “ei is!”
She can correctly point to her
Nose, eyes, head, teeth, mouth, hands, arms, legs, belly and piggies when asked too. She can also point to ours and loves playing this game. I think she just likes hearing how clever she is lol.
She’s been recently trying really hard to jump. I jumped the other week and she laughed her head off. Apparently it’s really funny and she try’s so hard, but just ends up on her tiptoes, I’m not sure it will be long now though. She’s also obsessed with doing roly polys, I help her do them and now she stands on all fours with her head on the floor, I’m wondering if she’ll try that soon!
She now owns nine pairs of shoes and likes to pick her own pair out everyday. This can cause arguments if I don’t let her. She’s gotten so independent recently. She also try’s to put her own coat on, she can manage one arm then asks for help.
She no longer wears baby grows this makes me sad as her baby days are well and truly behind us now. She takes them off so she wears pjs now, but cute ones!
She understands more and more of what we’re saying now. If I say to her we’re going to see such and such she says “yes” nods and demands we leave that very second. So I try not to now until I’m actually ready to leave!
She’s recently started watching a few programmes on Cbeebies. I’ve never put it on for her until recently, and she adores both RAA RAA and in the night garden. She won’t move from her sofa when watching ITNG but loves the noises RAA RAA makes and copy’s him all day long. So I’m thinking her birthday will be themed about either of these two programmes this year.
Watching in the night garden with her daisy.
She’s still a total book worm and we read all day long. Our current favourite is a book called “babies busy day at the park” and is an interactive book. It has several items listed on each page for Tia to point out and she knows where 98% of them are now. We have to read this book a good half a dozen times a day!
