Dear mummy, we started this blog as an online diary, a way to record me growing up. So far we have shared our adventures and things we love (or hate) through reviews but we haven’t really captured the ‘little’ moments – the things that are easily forgotten or eclipsed by bigger moments.
In this series of posts titled ‘memories from my mummy’ my folks are going to write about all the cool things I do and say, my mini milestones. Hopefully in years to come I can look back on these ramblings from my mummy and daddy and make sense of them!
June 2015 ( Isabella is 26 months )
Bella can now count to ten easily, she stumbles on numbers sometimes in her hast to get them all out. She likes jumping from number 2 straight to number 6. I think her favourite number is 6.
Bella is slowly starting to string sentences together. She likes the Gruffalo’s Child, Room on the Broom and any jungle books. She likes turning the page upside down when she sees a bat. She can now say elephant, bat, lion, crocodile, parrot, monkey, rhino and a whole host of other animal words.
Bella is fascinated by her dolls, she re-enacts our bedtime routine, feeding them milk and patting their tummies. She likes giving them medicine.
She knows all her carers names at nursery and all her little friends names, often referring to them in books and in the car.
Bella loves hide-n-seek, I count to 10 and she runs up the stairs with Daddy and hides behind the nursery chair. She also has a fondness of hiding in the wardrobe right at the back behind Daddy’s suits.
Bella likes ordering us around, sometimes with her hands upon her hips, ‘no daddy, come daddy, not yet daddy’ are some of her typical phrases.
When I pick her up from nursery and drive home she says ‘daddy not home yet’ when she sees that daddy’s car is not there by the house.
She’s still in her cot and has only recently started to put her leg on the top rail, she makes no real effort to get out of the cot. In the mornings she is quite happy to sit and amuse herself with her toys or watching something on Daddy’s iPad.
Love Mummy and Daddy x
