15 Months ~ Letter to August


Hey my clever walker!

Yep Mama was right...this month you WALKED!! You took your first few steps on the 12th June 2013...I was so proud and so was Papa. It took me awhile to get a photo though. You would walk a few steps and bump down onto your bum so quickly I couldn't catch you mid step!

This new found skill is making you a very happy chap, you look pleased as punch with your new freedom. Mama however is slightly weepy at the fact that her baby is now all independent. 

Life has been passing by at a gentle pace...mornings in pyjamas, and lazy hazy hot days of naked baby time, long lunches & BBQ's is the garden. I have enjoyed this month with you so much. I am remembering the baby and looking at the toddler it is weird for Mama...but wonderful to see you grow so beautifully.

You are happy, fun and charming little Pip...all this hard work is paying off.

You have really developed a love for books this month, and I often find you looking through one.
You walked!!
You share all your food with us.
You love to chew on the flooring foam letters.
You have 4 new teeth all coming through at once ;(
You have inherited your Papa's love for Lego.
Opa, Oma and Tante Miranda came to visit you.
You love an audience and anyone with a camera.
You get shy and upset when new faces are around.
Banana's still rock your world.
You went in a big van on a work trip in the gorgeous June heat and met your cousin for Lunch
You HAVE to smell flowers if you seen them.
You will not lie down to have your nappy changed.
You know the phrase 'shall we go and brush your teeth' in both English and Dutch. you also put your hand up to your month in a mock brushing action!
You are quick at learning new things.
You love to empty your bookcase.
You are still clingy if tired, in pain or in new situations.

Life is gloriously full at the moment. You make us so proud and thankful. You make me think quick and enjoy the small things. Living simply is a big thing for us right now. We don't want to miss a thing.

Keep amazing us Darling boy.
You Rock our world.
Love you,
