To My 15 Month Old Baby Girl

I always say that one of the greatest things about writing this blog is that you will be able to look back at this for many years to come and read all about how much fun we had, what real life looked like for us and understand just how loved you are.

You are now 15 months and you are becoming such a little character. You are the funniest, craziest and most endearing person that I know and I am so totally blessed to spend every day with you and watch you grow.



You amaze me every single day with your thirst for learning and developing abilities.

You are the chatiest 15 month old I know. You love to talk and talk you do! Your favourite word is Daddy. You talk about Daddy all day every day and every time my phone rings you call out Daddy. Even when he's there! You are discovering new words all the time. You also often say Mummy, milk, no (always with a defiant head shake), shoes, duck, dog, please, happy, yes, thank you, dirty, head, nose, hi, bye. I'm sure you're saying many more things that we can't quite make out yet but every day your communication gets better and better. I can't wait until the day that we can have proper little conversations.

I'm sure you are going to take after your me and your  daddy and be a singer. When you're not talking you LOVE singing. You often make up songs about your mummy and daddy in your beautiful little voice. Your favourite kiddie songs are heads, shoulders, knees and toes (actions and all) and bah bah black sheep. You love watching the lion king, we fast forward through the scary parts but the songs get you so excited. You especially like  I just can't wait to be King. Your most favourite song that you have loved since birth is Happy. That gets you dancing and clapping every time. Your dance moves are impeccable and I don't know whether to laugh or discourage your hilarious twirking!


You are so mobile and toddling about everywhere. You also love stairs. You can go up and down by yourself and recently rather than crawl up and down you have been attempting, quite successfully, to hold on to the banister and walk up and down. You like to crawl on top of furniture especially on my favourite coffee table. When we tell you we're not sure you should be doing that you find it hilarious. It is because of your love for climbing on the coffee table when even when you know you're not allowed to that we have introduced time out. Your high chair goes up against the wall and you have one minute quiet time. You always give me a cuddle and say you're sorry after.

You know what you want and you're not afraid to tell us. You love to say no. You are finding your sense of self and realise you don't have to confer with everything that goes on around you. You especially like to say no when I say that it's time for sleeping or if you don't want to eat, which is much of the time. You also shake your head. A lot.

Much to my horror you have become a fussy eater. You started off so well. These days you are only guaranteed to eat museli for breakfast, a peanut butter sandwich for lunch (actually even that is never guaranteed), brocolli and fish fingers for dinner and fruit, yoghurt and organic biscuits or puffs for snacks. You are 90% likely to refuse any other food I offer you. I will still spend hours in the kitchen preparing you healthy and varied meals in the hope that you will eat. I will make you a foodie!


You love to play. Your teddies are your best friends. You are so affectionate with them. Hugging them and kissing them at every chance you get. Your favourite toys are your cooking spoons and pots. You can be kept entertained cooking for me and your daddy and then feeding us your imaginary food.  We can't wait to buy you a play kitchen for Christmas. It's going to go right in our kitchen so you can do your cooking alongside me.


We take a daily walk to see our duck friends. You love ducks. You watch them swimming in the pond, playing with each other and quacking away. You quack back at them. You always know when the stroller is getting closer to the pond and you get super excited. You watch them with amazement, taking in their every move. When it's time to go you always give them a big wave and say bye.

Every day you bring so much joy to us. You have made our house a family home. Your 'big' little character fills every corner of the room. When you reach out to us for cuddles nothing else matters in the world and with your little arms around us we always cover you with kisses. We love you with all of our being and everything we have.

Always do you, Baby Girl.

  1. Such a cute post - reminds me of those wonderful days when my 3 girls were little and full of silly songs and dances (my youngest still busts out I Just Can't Wait to Be King on a regular basis.) Nice to connect through #TwinklyTuesday

  3. This is so lovely. And she definitely has a lot of words. My boy is the same age and only says dada, doggy, oh-o and mama (only if he's angry with me...)

  4. Beautifully written post! I remember when my kids are that age, where they love singing, dancing and also into mischief like climbing stairs... where they're learning to discover their own little personality. Those cute little hands just looks so adorable... #coolmumclub

  5. Such a beautiful and cute post! She is one gorgeous character. I have just bought a play kitchen for Lizzy, I resisted buying one for ages as I don't like bulky toys but we now have a space in the living room for one and she's going to love it, I think I'm going to love it just as much her!

  6. Reading this reminded me of my eldest daughter at that stage - they grow up so fast. The talking gets even more amazing, and you have so much to look forward to! Thanks for sharing this with #coolmumclub

  7. Wow you have a great talker! Piglet is almost 16 months and can say a grand total of one real, verified word (and it isn't Mummy). I can't wait until he can say more words.

  8. I can make you feel better abou eating. Mine is the only baby who will snub bananas in favour of smoked salmon and still refuses to eat breakfast (I think he's got that from the Portuguese). I've decided to relax and trust his body knows what he needs.... Thanks for sharing #fromtheheart
