One week on and she's not a baby anymore

Isobel is now a fully fledged toddler, I'm threading the needle to sew on her walking badge as we speak.

In so many ways it's been a a very busy week. We have been to the Isle of Wight and come back with the following pieces of information:

Isobel can walk and walk and walk. She can even turn 360 degrees without falling down.

Bruises are easily come by but also relatively easy to go if you plaster them with Arnica and have very young skin. Scratches from playing peekaboo with a fence might be slightly more persistent.

Poor little girl suffers from car sickness, something we have discovered the hard way; I have washed the car seat twice in two days.

Isobel's feet have grown from a 3F to a 31/2G, and I had to order her shoes from Internet.

We have five new words: Bubbles - bubboos, again - gain, grandma - gamma, banana - nana, and my aunt is convinced she said Angela. (Yes, I have had a few more mummies too)

We have a book called 'Is this my nose' and I found Isobel sitting on the floor reading it and pointing to all the correct face parts - well if she were a Picasso painting.

Ice cream cones and key lime pie ice cream have been mastered. Yes, we had a 'hut day' at the seaside.

And most importantly of all, Isobel has spent time with her family, including her godmother.

Needless to say we had a lot to tell PD when we got back.

I cannot believe what a difference a week makes, I'm glad I didn't miss a minute of it.

It's amazing how things start to happen suddenly, and the changes all come think and fast, once you reach a certain point. And once the walking/talking thing gets going, every day is different. Sounds like you're enjoying it!

I loved spending time with you both. Isobel is a bundle of gorgeousness. I love that she laughs at so much, and especially that she has mastered the art of making herself laugh, full-blown belly laughs no less, at such a young age. Lots of love a proud godmother. xxxxxxxxxxxx Just wish I could see you more often...

Sounds like you had a lovely time on the Island. It's so special when they start chattering isn't it? And once they start, they never stop!!! Go Isobel.

Thanks everyone, we did and we are having a lovely time.

Quite looking forward to the chattering!
