TLM has changed so much since her first birthday (she's now almost 23 months). She's also developed a few cute personality quirks.
Our little girl has become obsessed with all things fairy-like, can count to 20 and knows her alphabet, has a favourite fluffy orange sweater which she calls Chicken, drinks the coloured water she's supposed to be playing with and knows the words and the actions to Twinkle Twinkle.
And through an unfortunate word association, when she says a food is "nice" that means she's about to spit it out and rub it into the nearest fabric upholstery.
But some things haven't changed at all. Take the baby hammock she's had since she was born. The Little Madam must be getting perilously close to it's 15 kg limit by now, but we're loathe to stop using it because she still naps in it once or twice a week. She's also reverted back to nap-resistance. Today, TLM did nothing but complain at naptime (despite having been given a pair of fluffy socks to play with), and only finally fell asleep after I took her out in the buggy.
Going back to buggy-reliance could turn out to be a blessing in disguise, actually. I've become a bit slack with the exercise ever since I started painting (again) and writing (or trying to). If the only way I can get a regular cardio workout is by pushing a toddler-laden buggy around for an hour, then I should probably make the most of it eh?
