26 MONTHS TODDLER UPDATE
1.) How old today?
Mia Mooi is 26 months old today
2.) New milestones/ talents/ achievements?
She can sing now - she sings her little heart out, it's the most beautiful thing I've ever heard. She askes questions - "waar gaan ons" "wie's dit" "who's here" "what's this" - luckily no "why" yet, hehe!
3.) Favourite toys & favourite things to do?
She loves water. To splash in it, to sit in it, to pour it from containers, to put toys in it.
She loves painting - even if it's just with water!
We snuggle on the couch in the afternoons and watch some Cbeebies together
Jumping on her trampoline
Spending time with family
She really likes her Barney toy!
4.) Current words?
Too many to mention. She's putting sentences together beautifully, and can really communicate exactly what she's trying to say most of the time. Loving it!!
5.) Favourite food and snacks?
Viennas, chicken, marmite toast, fish fingers, chocolate
6.) How is toddler sleeping at night?
Good! She sleeps through. Bed time is at around 7h20. She wakes up between 5am and 6am. Wish she would sleep a bit later... But can't complain too much though, at least I don't have to get up in the night for her anymore!
7.) Day naps?
Usually she naps from about 11h30 - 13h30, and then has a lie-down at around 4pm, drinks her tea and chills in her cot for a while. Although these days she often has her tea on the couch and chills infront of the tv for a bit.
8.) How many teeth - and how are teething issues going?
18!!! Just two more to go! The last molars have been really difficult for her. These next two must just come now so we can be done with toofies!
9.) Weight and length?
About 13.5kg, not sure about length
10.) Clothing size and shoe size?
2-3 years mostly, but still fits into lots of her 1-2 things. Shoe size 6.
11.) Recent toddler 'highs'?
The kisses she loves the give. How friendly she is to people in town. How much she loves her family. Cuddles and snuggles in bed in the morning. Her singing.
12.) Recent toddler 'lows'?
Been going through a bit of a clingy stage lately. Other than that - no lows!
13.) What are you looking forward to in the coming months?
Our family holiday coming up on Friday!
Christmas time, yay!
14.) How are mommy and daddy doing?
Really good, no complaints! Do wish we could spend more alone-time together sometimes, but guess we need to just manage our time better and make date-night a more common occurance! We both really love this toddler stage, the interaction is so special.
