No longer a baby!

Oh my goodness me! It has been far too long since I last made a post on my blog. How things have changed since my last post.

Eloise is now in full-blown toddler mode, no longer a little baby. I look at her pictures from last year and it brings a tear to my eyes. The sweet little munchkin is now a cheeky little monkey.

Over the last few months, she has astonished us all with her developments and dare I say it, tantrums. If she doesn’t like something, she is sure to let you know! If she wants something, she will take you to where the thing is kept and patiently (sometimes impatiently) wait till you give it to her.

In about 3 months time, she will start going to Montessori and I will get less and less time to spend with her. I wish I could just hold on to her till she’s old and grey. Alas, that wouldn’t be a sensible option here. I have to let her grow into the person she will be. Hold her hand and guide her on her journey. That’s my job as a parent…

We’ve had a few ups and downs so far. Although she’s doing great with everything, her speech development is a little slow. I worry this may be because we speak multiple languages at home. Maybe that’s confusing her? I wonder how other children in multilingual households grow up. Do they have the same issue? If you’re a parent with a child in a multilingual household, I would love to know what you think and if you have any tips to share. Overall, she is doing fine and progressing well, I think going to Montessori will only help her with her milestones and confidence.

Edit: when I say her speech development is a little slow, I mean she only says about 25 words and is learning 2-3 new words a week. I thought this wasn’t normal, but apparently it is 🤦🏻‍♀️ thanks to everyone who messaged me and gave me some peace of mind.

Nothing more to report really, we’ve all been tied up with our lives and trying our best to get through the days. Cherishing every single moment we have with her as she grows into a young lady.

Lots of love

    1. Thanks, honey! That’s good to hear. I think I am a little bit harsh/demanding of her. She says about 25 words so far and learns two or three new words a week. Having read somewhere that it should be much more, I think I am being extra sensitive haha. Yes, I think Montessori will really help her!

      Thank you for reading the post! Everyone sends you and your family their love ❤ xx
