Jessica Toddler Update…*gasp*

1.) How old today?Jessica is 15 months, 1 week and 4 days…

2.) New milestones/ talents/ achievements?
Starting to say words, for specific things – Ma-Ma and then points at me (in person and photo’s)
Everything round is “bal”
Cant remember if I shared: by end May on the ‘ripe age of 1yr 2 months’ our little one starting walking She’s now running all over the place – not to mention crashing and ‘flying’…so cute my little snookems!

3.) Favourite toys & favourite things to do?She loves her sandpit, paging thru books, and playing Ball is huge at the moment! Favorite thing to do: sit unpacking anything (from cupboards to boxes etc..) and repacking or stacking the items (especially the catfood cans..)
4.) Current words?
Kitty (kiggy)
Gee (english: give)
Klaar (kla)
Nee (starting with this, other wise just shakes her head)
Ja (as with No, starting with this, or just smiles widely and nods for yes!)
Daar (da, english: there) sometimes sounds like she says ‘kyk daar’ (look there)… We say that quite a lot around here! πŸ™‚
5.) Favourite food and snacks?
Yogurt, cheese, bit of chocolates for snacks. Still loves her veggies and anything with pasta & a tomatoey sauce.
6.) How is toddler sleeping at night?
Good!Β  Goes to bed between 19h30 – 20h00, sleeps until she hears us in the morning 06h00 weekdays, 06h30 weekends *bliss*
7.) Day naps?
At the creche, they do 1 nap 11h30 – 13h30-ish. At home weekends, she takes mostly 2 naps, once around 10h00 & another 16h00, each about 1 hr.

8.) How many teeth – and how are teething issues going?

12 (6 bottom, 6 top). Been very easy going. Only the nappies and not eating giving away whats brooding in her mouth! She’s got her 1st 4 molars, bottom 2 completely out, top 2 almost there. Skipped the ‘K9/ oogtande’ for now… cute little gaps left for them! πŸ™‚
9.) Weight and length?
as per the BabyClinic last week, weight: 9.36kgs & 77cm (standing flat).
Β (birth 3.298kg & 51cm)
10.) Clothing size and shoe size?
mostly still 6-12months, shoe size 2 or 3.
11.) Recent toddler ‘highs’?
Giving hugs and kisses, taking your hand to show you something…
12.) Recent toddler ‘lows’?
Biting… dont even ask, so tiny and petite, and she’s the biter in the class…
And she gets very cross with the cat (thank Dad for that one), she tries to hit the cat now every opportunity she gets, cos the cat is a ‘stouter’… *sigh*
13.) What are you looking forward to in the coming months?
More words, spending time with her in general… taking her swimming by grandma’s house…
14.) How are mommy and daddy doing?

Can I skip this one?? lol. we’ve really had a few lows the past month or so. I guess whether I want to acknowledge it or not – Im under real stress and pressure at work, and then I end up taking it out on poor Hubs.. Im now trying my darnest not to, but its difficult! I feel like I’ve got PPMS (permanent PMS) and am ready to explode at any time. Dont know if I should consult my Dr and change pills or just de-stress somehow? Hubby really helping lots with J and household!Β  πŸ™‚ Still love him to bits, even thought some days I’d like to rip off his head and piss down his throat… πŸ˜‰


Okays and this was our very 1st toddler update… Im going to sit in a corner now and cry, cant believe I dont have a Baby Baby any more…

Still need to do a post with all the goings on… need a whole for that! lol

Have a awesome day!!


One thought on “Jessica Toddler Update…*gasp*

  1. They grow up way too fast hey? Some days I struggle to remember Sweetpea as a tiny baby 😦

    Jessica sounds adorable πŸ™‚ She and Sweetpea are quite close developmentally and milestone wise. It’s a very very cute age hey?

    Don’t feel bad about the biting thing. SWeetpea has a temper that has us all reeling and wondering where on earth she got it. Screams and hits when she is upset or angry … throws herself on the floor and rolls about screaming!!! This is all so shocking to us since Munchkin never did this kind of thing and often we aren’t sure what to do about it … how do you discipline a 15 month old?
