Now I am forever trying to encourage my daughter to learn new words, we regularly sit down and I get her to repeat words - good words. The amount of times I have to repeat words like 'butterfly' only to be answered with 'flutterfly' or 'cuddles' when I ask her to say 'puddles' even Peppa Pig hasn't helped me out with that one!

If you are a regular to my blog you'll know that my boyfriend isn't my daughters dad. I started seeing Ryan when Shaniah was 10 months old. Up until then it was just Shaniah and I.

This weekend was again another eventful one, the amount of mixed emotions was crazy.
