Things to I want to remember

I was putting together my Monthly spreads for October in my bullet journal and added a page called Things I Want to Remember.

This is where I want to write down those little everyday moments that are so precious to me. Willow is growing so fast and life is just flying by and I feel like I’ll forget things.

Singing songs and splashing her feet in the pool

  • Willow loves to sing and you will hear her singing a lot throughout any given day. She has such a sweet voice. While she has been (and still is to a degree) singing gibberish I can now recognise the tunes and some of the words in the songs. Her favourite song is Twinkle Twinkle Little Star – it has been since she was about 8 months old. She flicks her fingers and insists everyone sings with her. We get into trouble if we don’t do the hand movements. She can say “up above” perfectly. She also sings “baa baa black sheep” and “row row row” (Row Wow Row Your Boat). She is also the only person who can get her dad to sing songs (under duress, usually by shouting Dada! And nodding emphatically).
Willow loves plants and gardens. She loves being taken to the nursery and inspecting the plants

  • Watching Willow squirt the plants with her spritzer bottle. We love to spend time out in the garden and she has really taken owner ship of the plants. She even says “baba Flowa!” Because I told her not to pick the buds they were babies. The sun feels so good on our skin. It’s quite in the afternoons and there is often a gentle breeze. I love to sit out there with a cup of tea.

  • Her vocabulary has expanded so much! She now points to her nappy and says “poo” when she wants to be changed, she loves going to schoooooolll! And is obsessed with shoo shoos. She also loves her Baaa (bath) in the evenings.

  • Willow’s first trip to the zoo. We went last weekend and it was such a wonderful day. She loved the tiger, spider monkey, fish in the Amazon aquarium, camels and hippos. She run herself ragged the whole morning, drank tons of water, ate her snacks, pointed out animals and laughed. She also spent a large amount of time picking up litter and throwing it away. She wore the cutest Naartjie overalls and H&M hat. It is a day I never want to forget!
