Last year we went to the Isle of Mull and visited Iona. It was a bit windy but we had clear blue skies and beautiful beaches.
Peaches was a lot smaller then and at eight months old was still bottom shuffling. Very cute, quite slow and pretty predictable. We had lots of sitting around time on this holiday.
This time things will be different. Running, chatting, tantruming (if she thinks we are hiding chocolate from her) and spilling. The tantruming is a recent development. Recaro and I are discussing strategies for dealing with this, including;
- ignoring (pretty good for wearing her out at the end of the day, but noisy if with company)
- offering a cuddle (she's relieved to get the sympathy even if we are still refusing the chocolate)
- distracting (this involves lots of chatting and is my favourite for when we are out and about)
I might have communicated that to her a little too well though. For most of the day she's been trying to walk around with her kit around her ankles.
Very cute, but a little too much information I think.
Hopefully it'll be sunny or else she'll freeze her butt.
