My little angel man, you're now twenty-one months old. How can it be that we only have three months left until you're two years old, that's unbelievable to me. Time with you has gone by so quickly, too quickly in fact but everyday we have together is such a blessing, you bring me so much joy even through all the tears and tantrums! You're a fully fledged little toddler now, you get into everything, go near everything you're not supposed to and you're so curious about the world around you. You love to explore, whether it's in the garden, around the house or when we're out and about, if something can be picked up, opened or you can go into it you just have to do it. Your favourite things to go at are Daddy's aftershaves and colognes - I guess you like to smell good! You also love going at my makeup drawer and taking things out but at least you do put them back when you're finished having a look!
Your new favourite programme is In the Night Garden, you just can't get enough of it and we always watch it before bedtime. You have all the character cuddly toys and they've now become your best friends, you push them around in your shopping trolley, you give them lots of cuddles and kisses and you even take them to bed with you, it's adorable. You never stop running around, you're so quick that it's almost impossible to get a picture of you these days, luckily I had Daddy on hand to take your pictures this morning down on the beach and I love them, you're so handsome. This month you've begun making it clear what you like and what you don't like on the TV. You'll cry through every music channel until you hear something that takes your fancy, it seems that you like softer music, quite the opposite of your metal-head Daddy and I! This month you've been not eating as much as you used to. It's a struggle to get you to eat and I think it's time to put away your high chair because you hate sitting in it, you want to sit up at the table by the sliding doors, you're so independent. You're getting so tall now too and so grown up, everyone we meet thinks you're older than you are, you'll always be my little baby though.

Loves - All your cuddly toys, playing with water, being outside, In the Night Garden, going for a walk, toy cars and the wooden fire engine, running around the place, climbing the stairs and coming down it, being thrown up in the air and doing gymnastics, pretending to be dropped, older children, lying on all your cuddly toys, the sea, lemon and lime water, the playground and pushing your shopping trolley.
Hates - Having your face cleaned, getting your nappy changed, sitting still, being told 'no' or 'ah ah ah', being made to eat your meals, when you don't like what's on tv - especially the music channels and when our walks are over.
I love you baby buttons, lets hope this next month of your life is just as great as the last.
