I can’t believe that in a few short months I will have a one year old in the house as well as a two year old! That means by Christmas I may well have two walkers in the house potentially two! The first years seem to be when your children do the most growing I believe and my children are no exception.
From reading about second children people have been known to say the second sibling just slots in. I'm not sure about that I've found her to be rather a vocal baby that reminds you of her existence. As mums we have a checklist of all the things that help our little ones remain content. You know the one has she fed yes, has her nappy been changed recently check, yet despite all this she remains making noises as if something is bothering her and you've no idea what! We all have off days right but to have them every single day?!
The only thing I can really put it down to is the fact that she has about three teeth working their way through into her mouth at present. There are two at the top and one at the bottom all fighting for room. She absolutely loves her food so these will definitely come in handy. The other day eldest left some food on the floor and we soon learnt that baby can commando crawl across the floor! Baby now eats a whole range of food and if eldest dares to leave any (which she often does being a snacker!) she knows who will eat it.
As baby is on the move we've brought down the Jumparoo for her to play in but her sister tries to commandeer it! I've also asked hubby to get the activity centre down from the loft too as I'm sure she’d love to play with that too.
When she’s not busy trying to commandeer baby’s toys. Eldest can be found playing with Happyland Fairies, Wooden shape sorters and puzzles. I once made play dough which she didn't care for but we do like a bit of pen!
Both of my girls still have a nap during the day and then sleep straight through the night. However, they leave us parents with little time for one another. We've tried getting them down earlier but caved in to all going at the same time.
Well that's it for my March Siblings post. Have you got siblings?
