Better late than never – I’m finally posting your 17 month portraits.
17 Months isn’t an easy age for you sweet birdie… You’re so close to walking but despite taking your first step in Italy you prefer to crawl – it’s safer to be closer to the ground!
Your mop of curls gets wilder by the day and your cheeky giggle gets cheekier. You’re learning new words all the time – you can say bird, ball, baba, mmmer (for milk), da for that amongst others. You understand so much now – when I read to you and ask you where things are in the pictures you point to the right things and look delighted with yourself. I’m enjoying these days with you. Eeeking out as much of your babyness I can knowing full well you’re becoming a toddler right before my very eyes.
Love you, mama xxx
