October 2009

Niamh is doing so well! She is happily cruising furniture and has stood on her own for a few seconds at a time. She has even taken the odd step on her own, but is not yet walking independantly.

She has such a strong personality and is very happy. She is not talking yet but can say mumma, dadda and Bailey quite well. I think speech is something that will take a while to come for this little one. She loves playing with Bailey and Bailey loves her so much. He makes a creche for her in the playroom out of beanbags and toys and they read stories together and sometimes he even lets her play with his trains!

Niamhs health has been reasonable. She had bronchilitis last month but did really well and got over it pretty quickly. Last week she had gastro and she now has a rotten cold, but is happy all the time and still eats like a horse!!! Never leave food around as she will clear your plate!

Niamh loves to be tickled under the arms and will give a really cute giggle! Her voice makes lots of sing songy oohs and aahs and 'uh ohs' when she drops something!
