22 months!

lula_22months_5

I can’t believe my Lula turns 2 in just a couple months! She is the sweetest and funniest little girl. I love her dance moves, every day when she comes home from daycare she asks for music and our living room turns into a dance floor! She loves pretending she is on the phone and laughing like she’s having a very funny conversation. Sometimes she even put her hand (imaginary phone) to our cat ear to share the conversation. She also, just like us, put the phone between her shoulder and ear when she has her hands full. I love that every morning when she wakes up she comes in our bedroom, jump in our bed and give me a big kiss on the mouth. I like a little less that now she has a toddler bed and knows how to open the door, she wake us up at 5.30 or 6 which used to be 7.30 or 8. Also after giving me a kiss she comes around the bed to my bedside table, give me my glasses and put my phone in my hand and says “Tro Tro!” (it’s a french cartoon), so funny! And even if we don’t like to let her watch too many cartoons, it gives us a extra 30 minutes to sleep! I love that she like books and ask for them all the time, reading before bedtime is a precious moment.

Her favorite words (the ones she uses the most, a mix of english, french and spanish words) are “gateau” (cookie), “tétine” (pacifier), “all done!”, “agua”, “this!”, “dessine” (draw), “ballon” (balloon) and “bubble”, “stop it maman”, “piscine” and “tut-tut” when she sees a truck, bus…She knows more and more words every weeks, every days. She repeats a lot what we say and it is so funny to hear songs and other things she learned at school. Last week she kept singing ” gulp, gulp, oh nooo!” during diner time, with my husband we had no idea what it meant, so we recorded her and showed the video the her teacher who told us that was a song called Slippery fish, they sing it together with the other kids. Because English isn’t our first language and we went to school in France, this is all new to us. We have so many songs, stories to learn. She also loves singing the A, B, C; Freres Jacques and other french “comptines”…

Do your kids have favorite songs? books? cartoons?

Mother Daughter Style #30 + Quinny South Beach Collection

lula_stroller_3(Photographed by Sabrina Bot)

I am so excited to share with you about Quinny’s new special edition South Beach Collection. This gorgeous Zapp Xtra stroller was offered to us last week and I couldn’t wait to go on a stroll with Lula. How cool is this pink pastel color with accents of neon?! It fits perfectly with our colorful world and just in time for summer. As soon as we unfolded the stroller, Lula jumped in it ready to go! And trust me, it hasn’t been easy having her stay in her stroller lately.

I just realized while looking at the photos that we were so in a rush to get outside with it that I forgot to remove some of the white protection pads near the wheels haha!
