Busby // 29 months

Busby at 29 months Another month has flown by, and this may be Busby’s last month as an only child! Once again she has been getting increasingly more excited about the prospect of becoming a big sister, and keeps telling me everything her and her new sidekick are going to get up to together; including, playing with her garage, using the walker (“Baby hold this side, and I hold this side, and we walk together!”) and sharing all her toys… we’ll see how that transpires once he’s a few months old and starts to grab things!

Busby’s favourite books this month have been Shoe Baby by Joyce Dunbar, which we re-discovered whilst unpacking a huge box of books after moving. Her bestie gave it to her before we left Sussex, and every time we read it she says, “H reads this book with her Daddy every day”. She’s also re-discovered a love for The Tiger Who Came to Tea by Judith Kerr.

We visited a Nursery in our new village, which looks to be lovely. Busby settled in immediately; playing with all of the toys and staring at the fish. We’re hoping to get her started in the next few weeks before the baby arrives, so she’s settled and happy, and doesn’t feel ousted. It’s going to be odd for me sending her to Nursery again, as I’ve had her almost everyday for the past 5ish months, so I think there might be some Mama separation anxiety on the first session… she’ll be absolutely fine while I sob into a packet of chocolate digestives! It’s so important for her to be around little people her own age, and she benefits from it immensely, so I know she’ll love going again.

Busby’s imagination play has stepped up a gear this month, and she’s constantly in another world – either cooking in her kitchen, asking us to “follow me” on an adventure, or even hosting her own Monkey Music class with her toys! She’s incredibly bossy, however, and loves nothing more than telling us all what to do. It’s very interesting to hear her command us, as I never realised how often I say “Right!” when I want to get on with a task.

One of her favourite activities this month has been drawing, and she’s doing so well drawing faces – with eyes, smiles and noses in the right place! She has also loved Playdoh and painting, and there has been lots of singing!

    Aww, she sounds like she’s going to be a fab big sister. Amazing how well she’s getting on with drawing, O is 3.5 and still can’t draw anything constructive! 🙂 x

    I love that she is excited about being a big sister, I really hope she shares as easily as she says she will. We are having issues with this at the moment! I’m sure she will enjoy playgroup and you will be very busy soon enough ;0)

    Thanks for linking up with Small Steps Amazing Achievements :0)
