Happy New Year

It’s been a busy month but it’s Dani’s 11 month birthday and the last day of 2018, her birth year. So I feel I must acknowledge it somehow.

She is a cutie but she did try to climb out of her stroller and crawl into a fountain today, and I think she is going to eat all our food.

-pulling up, speed crawling, walking while hanging on to fingers

-says words like “hi”, “kitty cat” (just like AJ), mum-mum, and da.

-kicks her ball around, or passes back and forth

-chortles and giggles at people

-favourite toys are those blob like tiny Ty animals

-eats everything. New Years dinner was pizza, popcorn and cookies. (Dani also ate baby food.) 

-used to know how to drink from a straw but now doesn’t

-obsessed with the bathroom

- sleeping pretty good

-two top, two bottom teeth with a tendency to fall and cut her lip, poor baby

-just generally in way too big a hurry to grow up 

It’s pretty hard to top a year where I got a new baby. But if anything can, it’s a year where she becomes an amazing little girl. 

Holy crap. There really are two of them now.

Happy new year. I love the adventure that is my life and I wish all who read wonderful adventures too, whatever that looks like for you. I hope this is the year your heart is full to the brim.


  1. Oh my goodness, this post made me smile and laugh out loud!! Climbing in to a fountain...Oh Dani!! She is one smart little girl to figure a way out of her stroller!!
    And yes, that age is the age of endless meals and eating, it feels like all you do!
    She is definitely looking less baby-like now. 😭😭
    Hapy anew Year to you!!

    1. Eek, no I don’t know what happened to your first comment. I’ve been unable to comment from my phone for a long time, as blogger won’t sign me in for reasons I don’t know. I seem to be now so have to go comment like crazy!!

      Dani is in an extremely cute/mischievous stage. Enough baby left to be adorable but with a bigger personality coming through too. She’s going to be more of a handful than her sister at the same age I think. She does understand “no” if I’m very persistent. I love every minute but wow it goes by fast.

  2. It's crazy how fast they seem to go from babies to toddlers! Mini is pulling up on furniture and I can see her walking soon at this rate! Wishing you a great 2019!

  3. She is definitely a cutie! :) Happy new year! :)

  4. What a sweetheart! Happy new year to you and your beautiful family of four. Life will definitely never be boring!

  5. Thanks to doctor Uduehi for taking me out of shame, I am almost 40 years of age but I couldn’t get married because I know i can not impregnate a woman because I was suffering from ZERO SPERM COUNT and hospitals did their best for me but I still could not cure. So, Some months back I read about this doctor recommendation online and I decide to give it a try hence hospitals could not help, he administer his medication on me and after the treatment, behold for the first time in my life I started experiencing sperm. You too can be treated just like me and be cured. If interested you can reach him through: (+2347084878384) (
