20 Month Update

Over the past two months, since our 18 month update, Clara has learnt loads of new words – hot, cold, snack, bag, school, Peppa, ‘Jor’ (George Pig), Doc (McStuffins), fish, shoes, socks, more, again. She’s even started putting words together, two or three at a time – “Shoe on”, “don’t know”, “want milk”, “Daddy’s car” “Bel gone school”. She tells me if she’s cold, if her food is hot, if she wants a drink or snack. When I get in the house she insists “Shoe off” and “Coat off”.


Her favourite story at the moment is ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’. Nursery have been reading it to her, as when I started to she already knew it and said ‘Uh Oh’ and ‘Oh No’ in the right places. Now we have to read it pretty much every night before bed. (more…)

Our Weekly Roundup #2

We had snow!

On Saturday we headed to Whinlatter Forest to visit the Stickman trail, and although I suspected there may be some snow there, I didn’t expect quite so much! In Izzy’s words, it was ‘a winter wonderland’, and she had a great time building a snowman and throwing snowballs.



It was the first time that Clara had experienced snow, and while she seemed to enjoy it from the safety of her new carrier (which we were trying out for the first time that day), she wasn’t keen on standing or walking on the white stuff. I’m not sure if it was the feel of it, that it was slippery or that there were quite a lot of dogs around, but she just didn’t want to be on the ground. I’d hoped to get some cute photos of the two girls in their matching coats and hats, building a snowman together… but no such luck! (more…)
