June was recovery month for us as a family. Annie probably adjusted the best through all of the craziness that May and the beginning of June brought.
I can hardly believe that she is 20-months old now and is closing in on the 2-year mark!

The only small change was her nap time, which I’ll talk about below.
- 7 DWT
- 7:30/8 Breakfast
- 9-10:15 Independent Playtime
- 10:30 Snack
- 11:30 Lunch
- 12:30-3 Nap
- 3 Snack
- 5/5:30 Dinner
- 6:30/7 Bed
Ever my ‘easy’ sleeper, Annie kept up the trend this month with solid nighttime and daytime sleeps. In fact, she started happily waving ‘bye’ to us and saying ‘lubboo’ as we left the room. The kid loves her naps and I don’t blame her.
I did push her nap time back by 30 minutes this month. She really didn’t need the full 3 hours of daytime sleep anymore, so it made sense to push it back a bit.
She’s done completely fine with the change and it has been nice to be able to serve lunch for both kids at 12 pm.
All the food, all the time. Nothing much changed, but I am constantly impressed with how willing she is to eat. She’s such a tiny little thing and yet she shovels it in!
Confidence! In leaps and bounds, my little ‘mama’s-girl’ is stretching her wings more every week. She’s so happy to be around people now and loves that she has the ability to entertain them.
Her relationship with her grandparents has flourished, and I’m pretty sure my dad melts a little more every weekend when she wraps her tiny arms around his neck and squeezes him tight.
Her speech isn’t super clear, but certain words are. She clearly says ‘pees, dankoo, welcome, bye, lubboo, mama, dada, cool, no, yes, nose’…and I’m sure there are more but those are what I can think of off the top of my head.
Annie has been enjoying playing outside more and more. She plays for at least an hour outside most days of the week as long as the weather permits.
She loves scooting around on the little car that we got her for her first birthday, and she also has fun with sidewalk chalk. We don’t let cold weather stop us from enjoying the outdoors during winter.
My solution for keeping the kids happy outside are warm clothes and a good set of gumboots!
I was so anxious about Annie taking part in her uncle’s wedding.
She’s always been on the shy side and I was nervous about how she would cope. In truth, she did even better than her older brother.
Barring the meltdown she had shortly after walking down the aisle, (which, included her throwing her bouquet of flowers on the floor, screwing up her little nose, and declaring ‘no!’.) she behaved beautifully.
She was the most scrumptious little flower girl and dealt fabulously with all the chaos that comes with being part of a wedding.
Until next time!
