I seem to have said it each monthly update this year, but November was another super fast month here and given I’m starting to write this on December 20th the same will be said of December too.
This month has passed by in a blur of newborn baby loveliness with little Pip having settled in so well, she feeds and sleeps like an absolute dream and is the most content of newborns, she’s been an absolute delight.
Pippa turned a month old already!
Tiggy seems to be very much enjoying being a big sister, full of hugs and kisses for Pip and always wanting to help me dress and change her, although I use the word “help” in the loosest sense of the word. I do allow her to be involved so that she feels very much a part of it all and it seems to have worked as there have been no issues with her adjusting to her new role within our family.
We’ve enjoyed lots of time outdoors this month taking any opportunity to get out for a walk and some fresh air (mostly in our own garden) weather permitting.
The latter part of the month we’ve enjoyed more festive activities taking in some winter and Christmas fairs.
Tiggy is now pretty much fully conversant with endless conversation and has the sweetest little voice, I think her having older brothers has helped her come on leaps and bounds and so quickly with her speech, she’s great fun, great company, and she loves to play, often found making me endless cups of “pretend coffee”.
Tiggy is still a total “fuss pot” with her food and only seems to enjoy eating the foods she really likes, top of her favourites list is most definitely spaghetti bolognese but where she tends to cover herself in it I tend to strip her first to spare her clothing, however Tiggy doesn’t distinguish between home and a restaurant so we’ve sat in many with Tiggy enjoying her food whilst sat in her vest and nappy! (I’ll spare you, and her blushes, those photos!).
We’ve enjoyed many adventures at National Trust properties this month, these are some of my faves…
Tiggy really does enjoy the great outdoors, exploring, seeking adventure, playing and having fun…
All in all, November, whilst somewhat chaotic adjusting to family life with a newborn, has been a wonderful month with Tiggy’s brother Finlay turning 8, family adventures and lots of love and laughter xoxo.
