We have moved!
Neve at 10 months


Well what a difference a month makes!


Probably less than a week after my last Neve update, she started to move…and move rather quickly at that!


I had expected her to start commando crawling on her tummy and then push up onto her knees and bit more. And then after a bit longer she would start coasting around the furniture.


But no. My daughter has always been a stubborn one, and I believe her ethos was - “why crawl when you can coast!?”. 


One day we were happily eating our tea, when Neve decided to pull herself up on our footstool, and then proceeded to move around the room holding onto whatever she could!


This activity was perfected for a few days, then she figured out she could get up from lying down too. This has made putting her to bed a challenge as she can protest a lot easier now by clinging onto the bars of her cot and crying - heartbreaking!


Fast forward a couple more weeks and she then decides she does need to crawl afterall, as there aren’t quite enough tables and sofas to mean she can coast around the whole house.


So now she can go pretty much wherever she likes! 


While this makes me immensely proud, it also makes me incredibly scared! (Especially when she decides to let go completely!). Gone are the days of leaving her in the middle of my bed while I have a shower, or once she could sit up -leaving her to play by herself while I popped upstairs!


Besides moving about, her other favourite new skill is waving! She does it whenever we say “hello”, or “bye bye” to her, and she even does it when people come into thee room sometimes, and sometimes she waves at people on telly too!


The next few months are definitely going to be challenging and tiring, but I expect they’ll also be a lot of fun! 


Let’s see what she manages to learn in the next month!

Oops..
I’ve left it a bit long between updates again haven’t I!?
To be honest I’m not actually sure why I haven’t updated in so long, it’s not that I haven’t wanted to, I really enjoy it - I think it’s just been a matter of having enough time and the will to turn on my computer after sitting infront of one all day at work!
Anyway, I’m doing it now and will try not to leave it so long again!
Since my last post we have had a very important birthday! 
My little Neve turned 1 in September! We had a lovely day celebrating and opened our teeny house up to 3 babies, a dog and 12 people (throughout the day, not all at once!). 


Then, a few days after her birthday she started walking properly! 
She had been taking a few steps here and there before falling onto her bum but one of her little friends at the party had been walking around like a pro so I think that spurred her on!


Since then she has not stopped and is constantly on the move, and getting faster by the day! 
She doesn’t like to hold hands if we’re out so reins have been the way to go but she hasn’t quite grasped the concept of going in the same direction as me yet!


So now we have Christmas to look forward to!
I was lucky and received a 25% off voucher from ELC at the beginning of the week so took it as a sign and bought all of Neve’s Christmas presents in one go!  
I think they’ll be arriving tomorrow/Friday, just got to be good and resist temptation to let her see them early!



I won’t post too much now as I’m planning on more regular updates so i’ll save more news for then!

Some bathtime fun from earlier today. 

Put little one to bed nice and early so I could get on with packing up our house for our trip away. 
I think I’ve remembered everything, but luckily we’re not going anywhere that we won’t be able to have access to local amenities so we should be ok! 

See you next week once we’re back!

Please scroll down a bit, I have posted since my daughter was 10 months old but for some reason my posts are in a weird order!

Just a little extra, a few months ago now, I posted a collage of Neve from Newborn to 8 months. 

So to mark her turning one, here’s an updated version!

The finished result of my newest polish - Barry M Chameleon (pink version). It all starts off as the same colour but changes if you put top coat on. I’ve just done alternate nails but you could do stripes or another pattern. It goes on really nicely (similar to the foil effect polishes) and only one coat is needed. #nails #barrym  (Taken with Instagram)

My ELEVEN month old!! Yikes!

Not going to do a massive post as i’m a bit late to be writing an 11 month update seeing as her 1 first birthday is only round the corner!! 
So once we’re back from our holiday and have celebrated the special occasion I’ll do a nice big update!

Neve is getting even faster with her moving and is now starting to take a few steps on her own…the first time this happened I may have blubbed a bit!!

She had her 1 year review today with the health visitor and she said Neve is doing brilliantly, which was lovely to hear!

She’s also babbling away to herself loads now and has a new favourite action…pointing! Which then leads to me explaining whatever her chosen subject is! This can sometimes go on for a while when she’s being extra curious!! 

She is a lot of fun at the moment and I can’t wait to spend loads of time with her on our holiday next week! 😄
