She’s growing up so fast!

In the last week or so I’ve been incredibly aware of the all the new things Chloe is doing and how much she suddenly seems to have changed. Last night I saw her actually cruising for the first time – she has been pulling herself up on the furniture for a while, getting increasingly confident and speedy – but I’ve never seen her move before.  Last night at Fat Class she just started to move herself down the chairs – she was so confident I think she must have been doing it at Nursery and we’ve just not seen it till now.  Dave was impressed when he saw her do it today and also commented that it was a first. She’s chatting loads now with a very definite “Mumma” and starting to show she understands some simple instructions or questions – like “Can you give that to Daddy”.
