Oh how am I writing this post already. I can not believe Edith is a year old. It seems like just yesterday she was born but at the same time I can't imagine my life without her. She is just incredible and everyday she never fails to make me smile even on those really hard crappy days. Her dirty laugh and that cheeky grin is infectious.
A lot has happened since last month, it's crazy how much they change in just a month. I debate whether to stop her monthly updates and just do 3 month updates but so much changes I'm going to carry on until 18 months at least.
These photographs are from her cake smash photoshoot. Both cake and photographs were by me. It's handy having a food blogger/photographer Mama sometimes. The healthier cake will be up on Chalk Kids, an amazing Mama blog I write for.
I don't want to jinx things but I feel like we are starting to get somewhere. My husband now takes her to bed. I feed her and then have nothing to do with bedtime until she wakes later. It works. She takes herself off to sleep. We've just ordered her a single version of our mattress as he sleeps so well on it. We're hoping that she'll be happy on it, in her own room so we can claim our bed back. Co-sleeping is not all cuddly and love. It's normally an elbow to the head or foot to the back.
At the start of the month Edith had a few off days where she didn't really like much at all. Luckily she's been much better since then. She loved mushroom risotto and still adore Ella's Kitchen Puffs. As for milk she'd feeding less and less. I can't tell you how proud I feel that I breastfed for a year. I'm going to carry on until I feel she doesn't need it anymore. She's the boss.
Again Edith's not been weighed for a while but I have no concerns at all. She's in size 5 nappies and just going into 12-18 month clothes.
Saying "Wasssssat" (What's that?)
Crawling, she started off with an odd style and now has mastered it. She loves the freedom and is so much happier that she can get about.
Shaking her body for no.
Making a "Brrrrrrm" noise with her toy car.
Cruising the furniture. It won't long before she tries to take a step I don't think.
Pulling a grumpy face at people she doesn't know that well.
Twirlywoos & Teletubbies
Knocking down towers
Justin (Ergh, this Mama doesn't!)
People she doesn't know that well.
The Pontipines from In The Night Garden. She is scared of these tiny red things.
Happy 1st Birthday Beautiful Girl!
