Getting ridiculous


Friday, 7 February 2014: Three Hundred and Twelve Days Old.

Ayla’s non-stop energy is getting ridiculous!

Despite another sleepless night of near two hourly wakes up, Ayla hit the ground running this morning… Well, she was crawling, but at super human speeds!

Ayla’s attention span seems to be reducing at the same rate her energy is increasing so it’s like watching a bee discover a flower bed for the first time.

Ayla buzzes from one activity to the next and follows me from room to room and today she worked out how to climb stairs!

Ayla’s been eyeing off the stairs at her Grandma’s since we’ve been here but today it was like she decided she was sick of thinking about it and off she went… One step at a time up the platform.

I know it’s just a taste of things to come and I wonder how I’m going to cope; all my respect and appreciation goes out to those with twins!

Ayla’s always happy, but I’ve never seen her hypo happy before, and that’s what she was last night.

For about two hours Ayla was hyper actively playful.; she was grabbing her toys and shaking the life out of them, screeching at the top of her lungs, kicking her legs and waving her arms like she was trying to fly.

And all the while she was grinning from ear to ear and laughing her head off.

I was a bit worried at first, because I had a flash-forward vision to about two years time, but then I remembered to kick back and enjoy the hypo for what it was – pure happiness wrapped up in a pink cocoon.
