Dearest Posie – You Are Eight Months Old!

8 months old today!

Dearest Posie,

Wow, eight months of you and we are heading into Autumn which is horrid as I don’t feel you properly got sun kissed (shade kissed) in 2021 but here we are and heading into another season with you on our team, what better place to bell?!

You are absabsolutely incredible Posie and at 8 months old not content with just crawling, which you do super fast and look like a little salamander, that you want to walk now too. Cruising round the room taking one hand off and more recently two, to stand balanced for a while before slowly lowering yiurself down, and we are all in awe. Jimmy is both encouraging you, wanting to help you walk, and trying to slow you down not wanting you to beat his walking at 9 and a half months. I wouldn’t mind better that you do it soon!

You are a little toughie, I tell people at soft play who worry when their children come over to see you. You may be tiny but you have two big brothers at home who are constantly on you. Jimmy picking you up and Raffie being a bit too rough all the time with me shouting GENTLE! You will be hard as nails I think being the little sister of these two boys. Florence giggles you and cuddles you and loves you like a little Mummy and your eyes now light up when Daddy comes in the room. You are very definitely a Mummy’s girl but when he left the room without picking you up after getting home from work the other day you got very upset.

You say Dadadadadada and understand the sign for milk which you love and spend a lot of time nestled in feeding. Which is perfect and I love it too. You do like food though, if you can feed yourself and not have a spoon, so independent! You still hate the buggy and the car but love to be in the sling and you still sleep next to me and not really anywhere else. Again, perfect for everyone. None of us mind anything because your beam of a smile makes it all worthwhile! Oh and as of two days ago you can clap yourself for all your cleverness!

8 months of Posie is all pretty perfect if you ask me!
