Ok so I've kind of neglected this blog over the last... year. But I have been super busy! Here's a little update.
Harriet is now 16 months. As a working parent I can't seen to find time to record her developments every month as I had planned to do but I have tons of photos and memories! Harriet is a little madam and although she's just as clever, she is twice as naughty as her big sister. She's obsessed with the stairs and being outside. She thinks the word no is hilarious and her favourite game is to wind her big sister up. She's a climber and I'm pretty sure she'll be a biter too!
She's certainly a character and while I'm very reluctant to say it (girls can be just as boitstrous!) "She should have been a boy".
She is at an absolutely gorgeous age. Her beautiful strawberry blonde hair is beginning to grow long and thick and a few days ago she progressed from a clip to her first ribbon! Her blue eyes truly sparkle with mischief and her laughter is infectious. She loves getting messy and was the only baby to dive into the edible mud which was available at nursery! The ladies found it hilarious. Chris has built a fantastic mud kitchen for them both in the garden (complete with two sinks to avoid arguments!) Harriet absolutely loves it and is out there at any opportunity. I'm pretty sure she's eating the sand when I'm not looking though!
Heidi is 3 and a half now. Omg she's nearly 4! Reading my last post about Heidi, she has grown up a lot. It took her some time to adjust to life with a baby sister and although she still has her jealous moments, she's really settled down. She tries to pretend she doesn't care but in reality she's fiercely protective of harriet and I can sense her panic if we venture out without her. I'm obviously biased but she's a very bright little girl. She loves books, drawing and anything small world! (As well as films and the 'tablet' but the less said about that the better!) A few weeks ago Heidi was invited to a friends 4th birthday party complete with the 'animal man'. To my surprise (and everyone else's! ) Heidi happily held/stroked all he animals on offer including a snake, a gecko and a tarantula. At one point she was stroking the tarantulas legs saying "Oh he's soooo cute!" What?? This weekend she's been picking up worms, centipedes and woodlice to save them from Uncle Ed sweeping them up! She will definitely be a vet!
There is sooo much more to share so please pop by for more tales soon. I promise it won't be long!
Love and cuggies
