baby, Tyler


Tyler is 13 months old! | love, Maisie |

If you’ve been reading my blog over the past year, then you’ll be aware the every month I share an update on Tyler. The title has been consistent and so even though I feel like a giant knob saying 13 months, it sounds a damn sight better than “Tyler is 1 year and 1 month old.


If you missed Tyler’s 12 month update, you can read it here.


February is the shortest month of the year but it feels as though it’s been and gone in minutes, which is crazy because January seemed to last 246 days. It doesn’t seem like five minutes since we were having Tyler’s very first birthday party and now that was over a month ago.


Teething is still hanging about, although we haven’t had any new teeth pop through. However we have had a couple of half sleepless nights. Mostly down to teething (I think) but last week we had a couple due to some viral bug that Tyler had managed to pick up. The poor soul had a fever and was inconsolable for what felt like hours. Thankfully, he seems to be back to his normal self now, let’s just hope that we don’t pick up any other germs!


I have exciting news in the walking department, Tyler took his first steps last week! They were heavy footed and a bit clumsy but he did it! Two little steps all by himself, I’m so proud of him! Over the weekend he took a couple more and yesterday he managed about four. You could tell he was pleased with himself as he chuckled the whole time, cutie alert.


Touch wood, Tyler’s reflux seems to have pretty much gone, hurrah! I actually can’t remember the last time that he was sick. I know it must have been in the last month, but to say that he used to throw up over 20 times a day, I’d say that’s amazing! If any of your little ones had reflux, I’d love to know at what age it completely stopped?

Tyler is 13 months old!

Towards the end of February, Jack, Tyler and I ventured down to Brighton to attend Violet’s first birthday party! It was lovely to see Lyndsay and for the bubas to see each other again, although I think Violet is getting pretty sick of Tyler constantly trying to poke her eyes out and put his fingers in her mouth, poor girl!


I’m pretty sure I said this last month but Tyler is honestly my best pal. He’s got attitude, he knows what he wants(or rather what he doesn’t want), he pulls the best faces(see the first photo!) and he is(almost) constantly smiling or laughing. Of course, he has his moments, I think the terrible twos have come early if I’m honest, but mostly, he’s an absolute gem and I feel so lucky to call myself his mummy! He has also finally stared dancing which means every morning we have a bit of a boogie together and his music taste is impeccable so far!


As each day passes, I am finding it easier to entertain Tyler. Whether that’s with toys, books or some Cbeebies. I can’t wait to be able to go outside more and go on little adventures with him. This horrible winter weather we’ve been having has totally scratched my spring plans of taking Tyler out to the Abbey grounds on his trike. Hopefully next month I’ll be able to share some photos of us outside enjoying the sunshine, keep your fingers crossed!

  1. This was such a lovely update, and so nice to see the photos of Tyler. First steps are so exciting, he will soon be running eh? Lylie is definitely in the terrible two’s if you tell her she can’t do something she actually throws herself to the floor, i’m naming it the ‘strop flop’ the hardest part is to try not to laugh… I am useless at it!!

    1. Aww thank you Gemma!! Haha, I feel like he’s already eager to run and will be off with the wind in his hair in no time!! Haha strop flop! I’m sure I have that to come >.< x

  4. Eeeep, where has the time gone?! I can’t believe our babies are already thirteen months. Please, someone make the time slow down (or give me another baby)! Teething is a BITCH. B.I.T.C.H. I hate it. Kind of. I think I’ve been pretty lucky. He doesn’t really wake at night for sore teeth. It’s always because he lost his dummy or needs a blankey and a cuddle, ha! I can’t believe he’s already walking. That’s nuts. Such a cool milestone!

    xo, Victoria
