Peas *pause* Peas *pause* Peas *pause* Peas …… And on she goes until she gets her bowl of peas.
This 15 month old munchkin is on a pea eating mission. She wants peas for breakfast, lunch,dinner and in-between. I wonder if peas qualifies as a wholesome diet in itself.
If it’s not peas sautéed in butter, peas in a curry, peas in a pilaf, peas patties, peas in potato or even peas straight out of the freezer. The other day we went to the botanical garden near our house to feed the ducks and when I pulled out the bag of frozen peas for the ducks, this ill duck ate them all. I must be happy at least it’s not something unhealthy like chocolate that’s she asks for! But that’s probably cause shes never tasted it 🙂
Apart from peas, these are the other food shes enjoyed this month. She is one foodie, this girl!

She uses the potty every morning since 3 days. As soon as she wakes I carry her and sit her on her potty after removing her nappy and she pees inside it. Then asks me to help her up and then waits while I flush the contents and then wash the potty.
Yesterday she did her first poop in the potty too. As soon as I saw her trying to poop,I removed her nappy, took her straight away and sat her on the potty and she did the big job.
I am so proud of my baby and feel waves of nostalgia as I watch her grow into such a warm and affectionate little person.
So before the clock strikes midnight, here’s posting her 15 month milestones cause she’s gonna turn 16 months in under an hour!
