I had meant to do more regular updates on the little tykes progress, but you know what its like when things get in the way! The little man is now 19 months old and is really turning into a right little character. He has always been a very good little boy and incredibly cute and sweet natured, the staff at nursery absolutely adore him. But I am afraid he may be on the turn!!!
Bedtimes used to be fine, but lately they are becoming a little bit fraught at times. What changed? He doesn’t want to go upstairs. He doesn’t want to go into his bedroom. He most certainly doesn’t want to go into his pyjamas and sleeping bag. He knows the routine off by heart and can see it coming, he just doesn’t want the fun to stop even though he is dirt tired. We do our best to keep him settled and make the atmosphere nice and calm, by reading books and cuddling. This works most of the time, but some nights he gets himself into an absolute tiz. The dummy is spat out and chucked across the room. The blankie toy is tossed onto the floor. Then he arches his back and has an epic cry. Oh dear! He calms down eventually.
Supermarket shopping is also a no no at the moment. He doesn’t want to be in the push chair. He doesn’t want to sit in the trolley. He wants to walk on the floor, in the opposite direction to where you want to go. Try holding his hand? Nope, he doesn’t want to do that. Thank the lord for internet shopping is all I say.
But the rest of the time he is great really. He eats well, sleeps well and loves to play. He likes listening to songs and when he sees characters from his favourite tv shows dance he loves to copy. He walks well and loves to chase his naughty cat! He babbles in his own little language when he is playing and knows a couple of words, but we are trying to encourage him to learn more. He will get there in his own sweet time.
I cannot believe how much my little boy has changed, its hard to imagine him as the tiny, helpless newborn baby that I welcomed into the world. I cherish every day with him and I look forward to all the wonderful moments we will share. I love you little tyke!!!!
I hope you all have a nice evening, ta ta xxx
