Holden's 18th monthly photo, taken on the 1st of every month.
Holden turned 18 months old on the 1st of August, which was almost six weeks ago. I was so late with his 17 month post and then we got the keys to our new house, with no internet access, which is why I'm also very late with this post. We had quite a busy July with lots of lunch meetings with friends and family, getting personalised coke zero bottles, some new house shopping at Ikea and enjoying all the lovely weather with a trip to a country park, a couple of BBQ's, time in the garden with the water feature, a trip to Portobello beach, a botanics walk, trips on his trike and a few park visits. We also spent another day at the zoo, visited Auntie's new house again, did some holiday shopping for Holden and visited another country park with My Spare Thoughts. I also managed to meet My Spare Thoughts & Daydreams in Lace for a lunch trip to the museum. Holden got himself a great new chair from my aunt, all the way from Oz and he also enjoyed the Sealife Centre touch pool at our local shopping centre on one of his days with Granny & Grandad.
Holden is still doing really well with eating, he will happily eat quite a lot and enjoyed his first taste of meatballs at Ikea. He is really fearless on slides and things at the park and always wants to go on things that are too big for him. He particularly likes his friend Emily's scooter, even if he doesn't know how to go on it yet, which is great as he's getting one for his next birthday. He also loved the sea when we were at the beach and had no fear at running in.
This month I found a new nursery for Holden, which he will start in September. In August Holden has another birthday party to attend and we will finally move in to our brand new house.
