Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers

Lileeva has been given £5 by a random lady just for being so beautiful! Her piggy bank will be full within no time!

So it's my nan's birthday today and my mum emailed me to call my nan at a set time (Ehrm?!) to wish her a happy birthday. I kept calling our land line for over 2 hours, she finally picked it up when they got in from their celebration dinner, my nan was overwhelmed, crying from happiness and all that. Made me very happy, I love my Nana. Then my mum sends me a text after saying thanks for calling.
This sums up my mum. She thinks I called my nan because of her (Mum.) instead of me actually caring about my Nana's birthday. So vain, it's unbelievable. Did I previously mention that I'm not the biggest fan of my mum?! Sigh.

Lileeva has developed favourites beside Peppa Pig. I'm talking about certain foods. She loves banana, peaches, grapes, tangerines, beetroot, yoghurts, fishfingers and fishcakes, paprikás krumpli, lecsó, chips and pasta bake. We know for the fact cause when she does like something she keeps staring at the spoon/bowl and has these excited growls. Bare adorable! However she's not so keen on ham, cauliflower, chicken nuggets and eggs. Oh no, I might have given birth to a vegetarian haha! I think it's their texture and smell though, ham is thin and kind of slimy, cauliflower simply stinks, scrambled egg is gluey and nuggets are fairly hard to chew.
We are also trying to watch our language lately. I think it's time, even though Lileeva is not yet talking. A few 'shits' are still sliding out but rarely any 'fucks' and 'cunts' in front of her. It's very hard though, since both me and Lee were likely to curse all day long for years previously.
Having a child does make you a better person.

Lileeva is waving now, on purpose. Last week she wasn't yet sure about what it was all about, but by today she waves back at you if you wave to her.
She is also pulling herself up on everything, desperately. Not long now... Hope she waits until we're back from our holiday though, would be so much easier if she wasn't on the move when we're out there. However, I still doubt she'll be able to sit still throughout 4 hours flight.
She started to drop her naps but gets really cranky when she's overtired. Hard times.
We are putting her to bed at 08pm now, she usually wakes up about 07am if she manages to wiggle herself all the way up in her cot, but falls back asleep and doesn't wake up until 09am. Quite ideal, can't complain.
I got told I supposed to start to have her snacking between meals. By the age of one they supposed to eat three meals plus two snacks a day, plus whatever milk intake they have. It's apparently important because of their metabolism and since their stomach is tiny, empties quicker. Makes sense really, after all adults supposed to have the same feeding routine too.
I'm happy that Lileeva is in a good routine but I think I might have been a bit strict with her. About everything really. Hanging out with Kali and her children made me realise I have to loosen up a little. I mean, who cares if it's dirty, messy or untidy as long as Lileeva happy?! Should ease up my control freak self a bit.
It's really good being around Kali though. We are trying to make it as weekly thing so the kids can bond, giving the option to befriend each other as soon as possible. It's always good to have a person with similar interests around you, especially when they have a similar aged baby as yours. I can also ask her about tips and tricks of parenting since she has a lovely 4 year old too.
Life is good.

It's been 2 years yesterday. Only 2 years and an already 9 months old daughter. Yes.
With all it's ups and downs... I love him so much!

I'm highly superstitious and am a believer. Of many things. I like to think I'm open-minded, yes.
There is a myth that kids can see ghosts easier for example, and that there is this saying that 'Someone's always looking out for kids and drunk people' that's why they are not likely to get hurt and so on.
I wasn't really thinking about it until Lileeva had a screamo day not long ago. She just wouldn't stop, no matter what I did for her. She hasn't been this bad for about a couple of months.
Then the following day I realised, I forgot to take my medication the day before. I'm pretty sure Lileeva sensed it. She became calmer straight away when I started to take meds, most probably cause I became calmer too. This was the whole point after all.
I find this whole situation amazing. I mean few of her senses haven't 100% developed, like she can't walk, talk, read or write. Instead she is more aware of feelings and vibes for now.
My friend Kali agrees too. Her 4 year old notices things on the street we are just walking past by blank.
I know priorities change in our lives, and we all have to grow up, but the term 'growing up' has gotten a new meaning in my books besides of maturing. It kind of means shutting your least needed senses (Like the ability of feeling someone's presence or vibe, seeing others' auras and so.) and using your most needed ones, like thinking about the ingredients you have to buy for dinner, watching out for a car when crossing the street and listening out for your baby in the pram.
But hey, that's just how life goes I suppose.

Seeing tiny babies and adverts like these, make me unbelievable broody!

However I started to see Lee's point on having only one kid. It's hard, cause he has a sister so he wouldn't know what it's like to be brought up alone, and there's me, the only kid in the family who always wanted a brother or sister.
I do believe if we did decide to have another baby it would be better to 'get it over with' soon, therefor Lileeva would have a little brother or sister to play with, and the age gap wouldn't be big either so there is more chance of them two getting on well.
But since it ain't going to happen I'm not too sure anymore.
I love Lileeva with all my heart and would never want her to feel abandoned when/if another baby came along. I wouldn't want them to fight over who is loved more and stuff like that.
For example I know that my niece Kyra (9) loves her little brother Alfie (1) to death but it must've been hard for her to see all the family gathering around the newborn last year and him being in the center of attention instead of her. I know that I would feel a little bit left out in a situation like that. But that's just how life works and it's no ones fault, but I rather have another baby now, as Lileeva probably wouldn't even remember the 'abandoned times'. And also, don't want her to ever feel alone and ask what I asked from my mum; That why wouldn't they give me a brother or sister to hang out with.
On the other hand I want Lileeva to feel special and want her to know that she is everything for me, and would be hard to make her understand if there was another 'rival' in the house.
I don't know... We shall wait and see I suppose.

It's awesome when you finally figure out why does your baby cry.
Obviously you're never happy when your kid isn't happy but damn is it a relief when you work out what's wrong!
Today Lileeva been quite moany and hasn't had many naps so both Lee and me thought that was her problem. She tends to fight it, that makes her over tired and she screams. She usually spends 3 hours awake, then has an hour sleep, then another few hours awake etc.
Anyways it wasn't only the tiredness or hungriness. Lileeva is teething again, I reckon we are having a troubled one this time. She refused to eat her fruits so I gave her porridge instead (Upped the dreaded milk intake at least.) but by the look of things she was in quite a bit of pain eating it. Put Bonjela on her gums and laid her down straight after, she gave me a big smile after hours of tears and now she's quiet.
Each of these tiny missions gives me faith and reassures me that I'm not a terrible mum after all.
Making her happy means everything to me.

9 months! Time flies...

It's weird thinking about that she spent exactly the same amount of time inside as outside.
A year and a half ago she was just a microscopic lucky winner and now she's trying to stand, walk and talk.
Sometimes still when I come across photos of us think it's all not real.

Just saying...

 'A man came home from work and found his 5 children outside, still in their pyjamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn around garden, The door of his wife's car was open, as was the front door to the house and no sign of the dog, walking in the door, he found even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, the throw rug was against one wall, In the front
room the TV was on loudly with the cartoon channel, the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing. In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door. He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened. He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door. As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls. As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pyjamas, reading a novel... She looked up at him, smiled and asked how his day went. He looked at her bewildered and asked, 'What happened here today?' She again smiled and answered, 'You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world do I do all day?...
''Yes," was his incredulous reply..
She answered, 'Well, today I didn't do it.’'


Lileeva is becoming more and more like me. The fussiness and now the sleeping habits. She became a proper light sleeper, wakes up every time we enter her room to check up on her and isn't able to fall asleep in the pram anymore. Technically she isn't able to fall asleep anywhere unless it's quiet and she's alone. Bless her. She will end up like me - with all the bad habits taken from her mother.

She has also started to use her tongue and trying to form words. We are very far from the first proper words but Lileeva is blabbing away now constantly. She's saying 'bla-bla', 'ma-ma' and 'la-la' all the time, chatting up trees, toys and random people.
As well as she's blowing kisses every now and then.
She is so cheeky and cute. I fall in love with her day by day.
