Dear Chai

You are 1 and 1/2 today!

This month you discovered how much fun swings are. I'd tried to get you on the swing before and you didn't like it, then one day we were at the park and you saw another child having a swing so decided you wanted to try it. Now, you love the swing and don't want to get off! You will happily stay on the swing for 45 minutes!

At the moment you are fascinated with lights and light switches. Everywhere we go you look at the lights and at home you spend ages turn on lights.  You turn the switch on then look delightedly at the light. To your great frustration you can't turn the lights off again but it won't be long until you have mastered that too.

Your favourite trick at the moment is sticking your finger up your nose. You are so proud of yourself and show everyone. Every time I'm on the phone you stick your finger up your nose for the person on the phone, if we are out and someone speaks to you, you stick your finger up your nose. You even stuck your finger up your nose for two dogs we met in the park. When you really want to show off you stick a finger in each nostril.

Another thing you learned to do this month is to kick a ball. We now take a ball to the park with us so that you can kick it around. You are also very interested in zips, you can undo them easily but struggle to do them up (so scream with frustration when the zip won't go up).

Every day you get more and more independent. Now when we go to playgroup you race out to the playground and don't give me a second thought until you're ready to go home to sleep. 

You love animal, especially dogs and birds. At the park you love chasing the birds, you run after them laughing the whole time. You are fascinated with dogs, especially ones who lick you, you think that's the funniest thing ever.

You are the best thing that has happened to Dad and I and we love you more every day. You are such a delightful child so happy, curious and full of life. The sound of your laughter is the best sound in the world, we are so blessed to have you in our lives.
