She’s almost one and I’m not ready!

So today is the 17th August which can only mean one thing…. Bethie is one in less than 2 weeks. I am not ready for this! It only feels like she entered the world yesterday. How can she possibly be turning one.

How shes changed

Bethie was a very content baby and never really caused many problems . We quite often heard and still hear the words ” bet you’ve got your hands full” Well the truth is no we don’t. We are very lucky in the fact that our children are all incredibly well-behaved so adding Bethie truly didn’t make it any more crazy than it already is.

She slept well from pretty much straight away and the only time we ever actually had her moaning was when she was teething or when she was poorly in hospital.

She’s not quiet now

She is a complete and utter character, I wasn’t expecting her to be as bubbly and outgoing as she is because when she was a baby she didn’t really like anybody apart from her mummy. Now she loves to babble away to people. Her favourite thing in the world is music. She has taught herself how to play the recorder and when certain songs come on the radio she has a full-blown party of her own. Puts her fingers in the air and dances.

I love that she has taken on her big sister Annabelle’s positive attitude, she rarely cries or moans. She possibly only ever moans when she is either tired or hungry the rest of the time she’s happy and smiling but do you know what she will not laugh!! No matter how hard we try we can’t get her to proper belly giggle. It can be done because we have seen her chuckle her head off when she kicked her Daddy in the balls but we’ve not seen it since.

I don’t want her to grow up!

I know its very selfish of me but I don’t care she is my 5th and final baby and I really don’t want her to grow up ( before anyone says “yeah you said Freddie was the last” I’ve had an operation this time to stop it happening 😛 ) I adore the fact that Bethie is my complete and utter mummies girl. I’m the only person in the world who gets big snuggles before bedtime, she doesn’t give them to daddy but I only have to look at her big brothers and sisters to see that all too soon she will be there all grown up doing her own thing. She’s just started cruising the furniture. It won’t be long before she’s off.
