I can not let this opportunity pass me by to record the memories and moments of my little cherub. When this project was presented to me by Naomi at Seven Cherubs, I could not help but wonder how often we forget to record and note the little things….
Some of you may have a journal for your own memories, feelings and emotions; some of you may keep an up-to-date baby book; photos, videos, and even notes… I have to say, I can not remember the last time I updated little E’s baby book, let alone record when her first tooth popped through, the date she took her first step, or her first word…. I mean I have a vague idea…
So I propose the same questions to you that Naomi gave to me as ideas:
- what was your birth story
- a tresured memory of when they were little
- a great achievement they made
- something you observed them doing
- a first achievement they reached
- a quiet moment you had together
But I am going to share a little something different. This is a recording of the famous tantrums. Whoever said tantrums start in the two’s I think was horribly wrong. We have the stomps, the face squirm, the mouth wide open with screams, and even the face plant on the floor.
At the moment I can not do anything but stand, watch and have a giggle to myself. Distraction seems to slowly but surely not be working as well.
Who can not laugh and smile at this face?
So at the age of 16 months (although this has been happening for at least the past month), I want to record and cherish these moments for me to one day share with my little E. As my mum said…. “It’s pay back time”… as supposedly I was exactly the same. So the genes are strong I guess!
So each week I will be recording something new and exciting. Something I may not have ordinarily recorded. But as I record and cherish, I ask and seek your insight, advice, and wisdom.
How do you tackle the infamous tantrums?
p.s. Apart from these current tantrums, my Little E is running around, being as cheeky as anything, saying not much more then “aaa” while pointing and expecting me to understand her. “Use your words darling” seems to not be sticking in. My strong minded little girl is going be a character of strength :)
