We just love to see her sleep 😴 . Especially because it’s so rare these days. She can’t sleep at all during the day and needs to catch it up in the early evening, but as her teeth hurt as hell, it’s not that easy. Feeling sad for my little baby 😔 .
Teeth are coming! Teeth are coming! Teeth are coming! 💪😊
LittleBo was early ... once. She had 6 teeth when she was 8 months old. Now she is 15 and more than half a year her mouth took a rest. Now she will finally be able to bite some hard stuff.
But yes, getting teeth hurts too. Not only her, but also us, when she eases her pain and practices her new skill by biting in our arms, shoulders, legs. We‘ll get over our wounds and she‘ll get over her pain and the result will be gorgeous! 😉 .
Having a toddler isn’t always easy. The terrible twos start way before the second birthday. Walking is fun, but sitting in the middle of the path is much better. And whereas it was easy to make this photo, I didn’t have any chance to capture our situation yesterday. Being in a huge supermarket with a toddler is horrifying when there is no way of transporting the child. While hands full with groceries, I needed to run after LittleBo in every corridor. Catching her was one thing, holding her another. We literally fought because she wouldn’t let off all the stuff she could grab and always wanted to jump off my arms and run. I am sure most of you toddler parents have experienced some similar situations. For me it’s new and I really have to get used to it and think of some strategies. Maybe not running errands with a toddler is the only strategy that will work. ... .
Finally all this dresses 👗 make sense!
As probably many of you girl-mothers I couldn’t resist and bought these beautiful dresses long before Janneke could walk.
Some were hanging in her room and soon their glamour went away while a film of dust grew thicker and thicker on their shoulders. Some were wonderful costumes for presenting our little Lady to the outside... just for the show, a few minutes were ok. Others were forced on her, but soon we noticed: when she was only lying they were riding up (not so beautiful any more and first of all very uncomfortable) and when she was crawling she couldn’t move because of the dress under her knees.
Actually it’s a sin that so many dresses are sold from size 57 onwards to parents like us, who just don’t know better, don’t think it threw and can’t resist to see their little princess in a dress.
Now, finally, growing from size 80 to 86, dresses start making sense. Looking gorgeous as they are meant to do, and not being in her way. Janneke walks, runs even! ... she also climbs, but that’s a different story 😉 —————
