Reasons to be cheerful

It's been an odd few weeks really. I don't know whether I'm coming or going, and neither do my moods... so it's time for me to take stock and focus on the good things again.

Things that have been mostly making me cheerful this week:

Her constant babbling and general defiance. She's so cute it's impossible not to laugh and smile with her. Her comprehension is just mind-blowing for a 20-month-old... yesterday I said to her "you've got a mischievous glint in your eye, little girl"... and her reaction? To rub her eyes to try to get the glint out of course!

My chunky little bundle of fun. Another Einstein in the making! Watched Tilly fall over, cry, and then Dad rush to get her... so what happens not even five minutes later? Jasper slowly positions himself where Tilly fell, and starts 'crying' with a big grin on his face! Magic!

The thoughtful little gestures that he makes, like picking up a super cool straw trilby for me for only 50p... or bringing home a bar of chocolate for me. I'm easy to please :)

  3. lovely reasons, thanks for sharing them.

  5. love the last one; those little thoughts that mean so much. Hope you're having a great day x

  6. Following your blog now love the look of it, feel free to check mine out.

    We loved the name Jasper and would have called our little boy that, except we have two girls!!

    My eldest is 2 1/2 and is just going through a really defiant stage so can understand how that feels! :-)
