I was recently tagged by my good friend Katy to do an ‘A to Z’ post about myself. However, I thought it would be more fun for me if I wrote an ‘A to Z of Jasmine’ instead. After all, I like to use my blog as a place to make notes about my little girl, who is growing up far too quickly! I hope that one day, when I’m much older and my memory is hazy, I will have all of these lovely memories to look back on and reminisce over.
A – Jasmine’s was born on the 7th April 2014 at 7.41pm.
B – Jasmine’s bedroom has a Little Red Riding Hood theme. It’s my favourite room in the house.
C – Jasmine had recently started giving proper cuddles. She throws her arms around me and rests her head on my body. It gives me the warm fuzzies. :)
D – Whenever we are out, if we pass a dog, Jasmine will always point at it and make an “Ooo?!” noise. She’s fascinated with our canine friends.
E – Jasmine currently has eight teeth. Four at the top and four along the bottom.
F – We did Baby Led Weaning with Jasmine which made feeding her so much easier.
G – Jasmine’s first ever journey on a plane was to Guernsey, which is where we spent her first Christmas at her Auntie and Uncle’s house.
H – “Heidi” was Jasmine’s first (and so far, only) word. She says it in an extremely high pitched voice.
I – Jasmine recently suffered with a nasty ear infection and conjunctivitis at the same time. Fortunately, she’s back to full health now.
J – Jasmine’s favourite toy is a pink Jellycat rabbit that we refer to as ‘Bunny‘. She cuddles it at night and takes it everywhere with her.
L – Stephen and I each wrote a letter to Jasmine on her first birthday. They have been sealed and stored safely in her keepsake box. We are going to do this every year so that she can read them when she’s older.
M – Jasmine was born at the Midwife Led Birthing Unit at West Suffolk Hospital – but only just!
N – “Noodles” is the nickname Stephen and I have for Jasmine. We probably use it more than her real name but she responds to both.
O – Oranges are one of Jasmine’s favourite foods, she can hoover one up in approximately 0.5 seconds.
P – We spend a lot of time at the park near our house. I still haven’t figured out how to remove Jasmine from the swings without a tantrum ensuing. She’d stay on the swings all day if I’d let her!
Q – Jasmine does the baby sign for ‘duck’ whenever she hears the sound of ‘quacking‘. Adorable.
R – I had an early miscarriage in November 2012, Jasmine is our ‘Rainbow Baby‘. :)
S – Jasmine is obsessed with our Sing & Sign DVD. We have to watch it several times a day and it completely captivates her from start to finish, every single time. It drives me a little bonkers.
T – Jasmine’s first tooth came through at 7 months.
U – I’m extremely sentimental but there was no way I could keep Jasmine’s umbilical cord stump once it had dropped off. Gross! It went straight in the bin.
V – Jasmine’s favorite vegetables are courgette, tomatoes and baby corn.
W – We’ve recently started going to Waterbugs swimming classes – I hope Jasmine’s confidence will grow over the next few weeks as she’s very nervous in the pool.
X – Jasmine received a wooden instrument set in the shape of an owl for her first birthday from her ‘Auntie Bubbs‘ (two of my best friends) which has a Xylophone on it. Jasmine loves to play it, even though she holds the sticks the wrong way round.
Z – Jasmine is terrified of most zoo animals and wasn’t even that keen on the very nonthreatening red pandas.
I now tag Lorraine from Babyy Pebbles, Vickie from A Pocketful of Dandelions, Hayley from Hayley’s Little Things and Shannon from Shannonagains to do an ‘A to Z’ post on either themselves, their little ones or anything else that takes their fancy. :)
