Baby is 10 months old today

10 months old

Wow!  Time really does fly.  Its quite extraordinary how the days and weeks whizz by.

Baby is amazing, she has a light inside her that everyone seems to notice.  Wherever we are she tries to talk to people and seems to make everyone smile.  We have spent the last month doing lots of clapping and high fiving.  She expects everyone to return her high fives, even strangers.  This was slightly embarrassing in the Doctors!.

I am so in love with Baby, she is my sunshine.  We have spent lots of time dancing together round the living room.  She loves it.  She has a certain smile, as if she is trying to be a proper ballroom dancer and laughs with delight when I start to sing our dancing song.

Her crawling has developed.  She now get herself in the crawling position, but she goes back to her old style (albeit using both legs) when actually moving.  She is NEVER still and is already into everything.

I am so grateful to be her mummy.


The Mulberry Bush-Magic Moments #11/Ordinary Moments #15

This week I am linking one post to both Jaime at Oliver’s Madhouse and Katie at MummyDaddyMe as my moment is both ‘Ordinary’ and ‘Magic’.

First of all I must state these are bad photo’s.  I am aware of that, but they capture such a special moment.  I do not want to miss recording such special, magical moments, because I didn’t have time to get the proper camera, even enough time to focus my phone.  Or because I was in the moment with my daughter.  I love the perfect photo’s, where everything goes to plan, but unfortunately my life isn’t like that and I not a great photographer.  So here are the pictures.

Magic MomentLet me explain why it is important to me.  Baby has started to understand words recently. ‘No’ which she ignores with a smile, Milk, High Five, Mummy, Daddy, Water and also Clapping/Clap.  She learned to clap before Christmas and was very pleased with herself.  I sing ‘Here we go round the mulberry bush’ to her and recently she has started to clap on cue (‘this is the way we clap our hands’).  It is so cute!  This isn’t the first time she did it, but I do want to remember these magical moments.

I am also linking up with Podcast Dove’s What’s The Story
