Another #fleamarket weekend with my crazy crew 😜 ... honestly: she’s so full of trust, it’s reckless. How can you teach a child to be more careful? She’s falling all the time and hurts herself constantly. But this doesn’t stop her of running around like crazy, no matter what barrier there is on the way. Sitting on our shoulder she started in a very early age. She trained her stomach muscles and never ever thought of holding herself with her hands. Meanwhile she tries out different maneuver and it’s only our reaction, why she never yet fell off. But there’s no guarantee... —————
Went to the ‘Wiesn’ of Rosenheim yesterday with my girl. Unfortunately she didn’t like the big wheel as much as I hoped, but she loved the food and watching ponies.
It’s always an adventure to celebrate traditional festivities with a little child. The next few years she will always react differently on them as she grows older and older. We already took her last year when she got an overload of people in the same clothes, colorful lights and noise. But she liked it nevertheless. This year she already told me what she preferred doing. Next year will be even more fun and then her beautiful ‘trachtenkleid’ (traditional dress) will fit too. —————
Free from restraints. With all her energy and passion she shows her emotions. She’s all in or out, knows what she feels and what she wants. She is mature and filled with happiness, but we need to follow her rules.
A few minutes ago she went to sleep. We went to bed but she stepped out of it and took daddy on his hand into her bed, saying it just like that. After the most energized toddler moments you can imagine we tried to read and calm her down. But she pushed me and said I need to leave, so I did. After only a few minutes PapaBo came out and she slept. She exactly told him what to do and then she closed her eyes. He needed to put out even the last little light „aus aus“ and stop singing „leise“. Isnt it incredible how this baby, not even 17 months old, tells us what she needs? ... But she is also commanding quite clearly and it’s not yet clear who’s the boss in this house. ——————————
👵🧓👴👩🧔🧒👶 My grandmother has 4 children , 10 grandchildren and (up to now) 10 great grandchildren. Meanwhile she is used to have a lot of successors and see children of her own breed growing up and become adults themselves. A journey that all started with one little baby. And for us, having only one little baby means the world already and seeing her frolic with my old grandma shows literally how long her life could be too, how much she too could experience, the good and bad, the wonders of life and death and happiness and sadness.
Most of our children are going to be much older than 90. that’s such a long time. 90 years ago 2nd world war didn’t even start!
For our children there is a life full of adventures waiting that will eventually become memories. Let’s hope for the good ones. .
When you ask her what she wants to eat, there’s only one answer: NUDELN! 🍝
Pasta and some other food like eggs or butter (preferably without bread) can always make this little toddler happy. She is a good eater, at the same time we still don’t have to worry about her weight. So a little problem starts to sneak in.
I tend to give her food far too often. It’s a trap. I can’t really eat while feeding her and immediately after she wants to play. So half an hour later when it’s my turn, she crawls on my knees and steels half of my portion. Mostly we don’t finish cause she is too wild, so the food stays on the table. Every now and then she goes there and insists on some more bites. Or she just goes to her high chair and looks if there are some bits and pieces that fell of the table before ... the chair is sort of her second round, the floor the third. And in between we snack while I enjoy my coffee: fruits, Yogurt, apple purée, ice cream or cake. And sometimes she also needs a banana or something in the middle of the night, a few hours before waking up. Our LittleBo is very clear in communicating, so the banana really can’t be mistaken for water or milk.
It’s not always easy to stay hard, especially when I feel that she really is hungry. But we definitely will work on a better rhythm the next few weeks. .
