I cannot believe that my little squidge has been earthside for a whole 18 months. Only 1year and half ago she was this tiny little bundle who couldn’t do anything for herself. Now she is a busy, active toddler with a big personality!
Evie eats most things. Not a massive lover of meat (like moi!) but loves chicken. Her favourite meals are macaroni cheese, spaghetti and meat balls, sweet potato wedges and chicken. Oh and she is partial to a fish finger! Her favourite snacks are cheese, bread sticks and grapes. She has 3 meals a day and 2 snacks. Does get the odd extra if I’m trying to bribe her to be quiet around the supermarket! She has a beaker of cows milk with her breakfast and dinner and drinks water throughout the day. The occasional squash if I’m feeling generous haha!
Evie goes to sleep at 7pm. She is still in her cot but will be moving to her big girl bed soon (watch this blogging space). She sleeps with bedtime bear and a jelly cat bunny. She generally sleeps through until 6sih. During the day she has 1 nap of about 1.5-2 hours long. I miss the days of two naps and dreading the time when there are no naps.
Evie can -walk up and down the stairs, stack a tower of blocks or cups, recognise basic colours, hold a pen in her palm and ‘draw’, recognise most everyday objects, animals etc, follow simple instructions.
I am learning to
Speak- Evie is a bit slow in the speech department. So far all we get is ‘Dad’ and ‘Duck’. Use a spoon, she can do this but keeps scooping up with the wrong end so needs a little bit more practice.
Running around, going to the park, swimming, playing chase, Peppa Pig and Ben and Holly, sharing and looking at books, the swings, eating and small world toys like Happy Land.
Long car journeys, avocado, having her hair washed in the bath, sitting in the pram.
At 18 months Evie loves to be around other children and familiar adults. She is very active and keeps me on my toes! She loves nothing more than to run around a park. She has great understanding of what I say but is quite headstrong and when she doesn’t want to listen, she won’t! She is starting to have little tantrums over the most ridiculous things, ignoring her or distraction usually wins her back around. She is very interested in the world around her. I can’t wait to watch her grow over the next 6 months and see how much she develops and changes, especially with baby sis joining the gang!
(Gosh that was rather report like, can you tell I’m a Teacher?!)
