Dear Chai

My beautiful son. Today you are 19 months old! The past 19 months have gone so quickly. You look like a little boy now, all of the babiness about you has gone and you've turned into a gorgeous little boy.

You are so cheeky! A few weeks ago Dad was telling you off and you stuck your fingers in your ears so you couldn't hear him! I have no idea where you got this from because I'm sure you've never seen anyone doing it.

You now close your eyes or cover your eyes with your hands when you don't want to hear what we are saying. This makes me think we are in for some fun with you when you get older, but we always knew you were going to have a strong personality and I wouldn't have it any other way.

You are convinced that we can't see you when you close your eyes, so you close your eyes to hide from us and then sit there giggling whilst we try to find you.

You love to hide behind the curtain and then jump out to scare us. You also love hiding in the shower and behind your high chair. You'll hide, then call out so that we come looking for you, then stand there giggling away until we find you. 

Swings are still your favourite things and this month you've discovered bubbles are lots of fun too.

You are growing so quickly, you regularly wake up in the morning looking different in the face or taller. It looks like you are going to be tall, you are already taller than a lot of two year olds, so I think you got Poppys tallness.
Each day you try to say more and more words, you can say lots of words now. Some of your favourites are Bra (which must be yelled at the top of your voice), eight, eighty eight, umbrella (which is whispered). You say Bar when you want a fruit or muesli bar, brrr when you want a bottle of milk or when you see milk, neh when you are hungry and Aste when you want peanut paste on your toast. 

Looking after you is so much fun, you are a delight to be with, so happy, curious and excited. My darling boy, I love you more every day.
