Pug sheets, soft cheeks and Betsy Benn*

Toddler blog update and Betsy Benn
It feels so long since I did an Oscar update! We were kindly sent this darling little shabby chic ornament from adorable print company betsybenn.com and little boy loves reading and sounding out the letters and trying
 to take it everywhere, even in his bubble baths in his fold up tub. It's so beautiful; though there's a huge variety of Christmas ornaments to choose from, I adore the constellation design. I still cannot wrap my head around that I had a baby and how big and real he is, a whole real life person that talks, counts and writes...
Toddler blog update and Betsy Benn
So nearly! He loves to scrawl out little letters when he is drawing, little spiral-circle shapes. Speaking has been the biggest advancement, he has grown so much confidence in trying out new words and I love that I can now have little conversations with him, we can understand each other. He also has secret words for things, almost like a code! There are still secret terms only Oscar knows and he gets quite frustrated when I can't understand.
Toddler blog update and Betsy Benn
His favourite words to say are 'orange juice', 'oh no!', 'oh dear-dear', 'ooop deeesy', 'apple', 'reesh' for rice and 'paapoo' for purple, so cute. He is very interested in numbers and loves to count his cars, up to the number four. We had lots of fun counting all the points on the stars and he even managed a number 'foise' for five.
He is so caring and adores the toy animals at his playgroup! Oscar is doing really well at his group, I am so proud of him. He has definitely become less shy and will even go and sit at the tables with the other children. Every capture I have of him is a live action shot because he is always on the go, we joke that he has stolen all my energy because he is always dashing about, whooshing his cars along the floor or sorting things.

You can find this ornament here, I love the Scandinavian feel about it and they will make perfect baby's first Christmas ornaments; such special keepsakes! He knows which letters and numbers are which, it feels so unreal and wonderful that he is starting to read on his own! I love all the funny things he points out, when someone is wearing a hat, he goes 'awwww' when he sees a cat or dog and laughs at their tail, when he tries to say the gerbils' names: 'Shoo-see' and 'Hi Hi', and has named one of our new baby girl gerbils 'Meemoo'.
One day he suddenly came out with a new word: 'doughnut', even though we'd never had doughnuts in or talked about them! We always joke that Oscar had such a strong craving for them, he managed to find it out himself, and they have now become his favourite food unspoken rule: don't mention them before teatime

We tried his Halloween costume on after his bath and he just would not keep still! This live action capture makes me laugh out loud every time, I managed to capture Oscar throwing his fawn hat across the bed, which sums up his reaction to it pretty well. Sometimes those candid captures or 'snaps gone wrong' are the best!

It kind of still feels like we bought him at the supermarket haha he would be definitely hiding out in the car aisle. Do check out the Christmas decorations at Betsy Benn, this swan number is so dreamy!

  8. Oscar is growing into such a cute little boy! It's great that you can have little conversations with him and that his language is developing. The ornament you received is gorgeous, and so well made! Definitey your style and a nice little token for you to keep as Oscar gets older!

    1. Hahaha, I must look like an idiot now...the link I pasted instead of my usual sign-off was the link I was sending to a friend who asked whether the show Big Cook, Little Cook was cook or chef. To settle the argument, I found a video of the theme song, but forgot that was the last thing I'd copied! Sorry, haha. Dying of embarrassment here XD x www.aimeeraindropwrites.co.uk x
