Happy New Year to you all! For me year 2013 has been eventful; there hasn't been a boring moment. The little person in the above picture has made sure of that. After having being the easiest baby imaginable for the first six months of her life she decided to go the very opposite way when we entered 2013; clingy (every morning all the way until lunch time nap she would have to be held pretty much non-stop), frustrated (trying to do things beyond her age and getting very angry when failing), noisy (crying LOTS and LOUD what ever the reason), teething (she had sore gums and a runny nose most of the year), waking up too early (5.30am at worst, 6.30am at best) BUT at the same time she has been the cutest, sweetest, cuddliest thing. You can't but forget all the rest when she flashes one of these smiles at you! (These days with a few more teeth!)
I think Baby M is going to have a very different 2014 though. As if by miracle everything changed about a week ago. She's been playing happily on her own, has hardly asked to be carried, her nose has stopped running, she has stopped drooling and she has even started sleeping the full 12 hours or a bit more.
And this little one then. Where can I begin? Little M is an angel. An absolute angel of a little girl. She went through her tantrums briefly at the age of two but this year she has been the easiest, happiest, most polite and considerate little girl. I can't quite believe our luck with her. If only I could stop her from growing any older!!
I can think of just one time she was naughty this year. She locked herself in a bathroom and did herself a face paint using toothpaste... Luckily she managed to unlock the door herself and I must say she smelled very fresh for the rest of the day!
Year 2013 has also included a lot of fun with friends. There has been more weddings, birthdays and trips than in any other year! It's certainly been busy but so much fun. What would life be like without great friends?? I feel so lucky to have you all in my life!
I was also lucky enough to travel a lot in 2013. My destinations included Cote D'Azur, Bordeaux, Paris, Puglia, Ibiza, Marbella, Barbados, Oman and Dubai. Not to mention Somerset and North Yorkshire here in the UK and of course Finland!
I'm excited about 2014 and have a feeling that it won't be a boring year either... I want to wish you all an amazing New Year! I hope you have fun tonight and I wish you all the best for 2014! It's a pleasure to have you follow us, thank you so much!
