You are 21 months old, and quite an amazing little character! You are developing so fast it’s hard for Mummy and Daddy to keep up! The biggest changes this month are that you can JUMP and say “James” and “Lily” but they sound a bit more like “ames” and “leeee”!
You had your first hair cut this month. I sat you in your chair and trimmed the back of your hair, you kept trying to turn to see what I was doing but apart from that you were such a good girl, and you sat nice and still for mummy. The hair at the back of your head is really curly and even with the curls it was almost reaching past your shoulders! The hair at the front of your head is starting to grow too, making you look more and more like a toddler every day.
You can jump, and you love jumping and spinning. You love holding mummy and daddys hands to steady yourself, but you can jump on your own too. You were really excited about your bath tonight and started jumping up and down holding the side of the bath. You love spinning too, especially in the kitchen (I think its because its easier to spin on the lino than on the carpet). You shout “spin” and you spin around until you fall over from dizzyness, I think you like the feeling of being dizzy, even when you are dizzy you still try to stand up to spin some more. We do tell you to be careful, but you dont listen for very long and as soon as our backs are turned you are back upto mischief.
You are very confident on your feet now, and you are good at walking outside too, although you still get tired and dont object to being carried. We took you to the soft play area at the Wishing well today and you loved sliding down the slide, you even tried to go into the big area and you nearly managed to climb to the next level, I dont think it will be long before you can! You can open the baby-gate now too (something Lily has only learnt to do in the last 6 months) it sometimes takes you a minuite or so, but you are getting faster. If Mummy wasnt pregnant we would be taking the baby-gates down, as they are a bit pointless now you can open them!
