Seeing the world through her eyes

One of the things I love most about being a mum, and a Stay at Home mum especially, is being able to watch the kids grow and learn right in front of my eyes. With Monkey at the moment this is so tangible as his vocabulary is coming along so well, and he is learning to read and write. With Little Miss it is a little more subtle but she is learning so much every day about the world around her… And I love to see to see the world through her eyes as to her everything is new, and everything is fascinating.

She wants to stop and investigate every twig, bush, flower, puddle, feather, anything really. It is so cute, but does mean that it takes a long time to get anywhere!PhotoGrid_1462108592132

Especially as even when she has decided she has looked at something enough and walks away, she very often has to pop back for another look… Just to make sure haha. Definitely time consuming! Here’s a little clip to show you what I mean.

She’s also discovered more about herself lately. She loves investigating her tummy button and finds it hilarious, and wonderful, to see herself in the mirror. She’s so cute doing this and it’s lovely to see her kiss herself, give herself a high five and laugh at seeing her reflection.PhotoGrid_1462115581071

She’s also discovering her hands more and was so sweet on a walk a few days ago discovering that she could hide her hands in her sleeve and then find them again.

One last clip of her to show where I tried to show her a sticky plant.. And, well you will see her reaction.

She cracks me up.

Don’t you just love seeing the world through their eyes?

  1. I love how children learn through touch and seeing and just exploring. I’m lucky that I only work part-time so I get to enjoy those things still. Sarah #WhateverTheWeather

  2. I well remember those half an hour walks to the post box and back (less than 5 minutes if I’d been on my own). It’s so lovely to see them exploring the world, even though sometimes you could do with going a bit quicker.

  3. Beautiful photos of a lovely happy little girl exploring the world. Love it! Thanks for sharing these precious moments x #SSAmazingachievements x

  4. Such sweet footage of her xx it is a wonderful age, learning and exploring. My mummy needs to take more video of me as I’m changing so quickly!! #LetKidsBeKids #Whatevertheweather

  5. So cute. You’re right, one of the best things about being a stay at home mum, is having the opportunity to watch your children grow and learn in front of your eyes.

  6. Aww the photos and video clips are adorable – how lovely to get that glimpse of the world through a little one’s eyes. I love the photos of LM with the mirror and the way she hides her hands and makes them reappear. Her reaction to the sticky weed is so funny! 🙂

  7. Awww she is so sweet! It’s such a lovely age isn’t it. They’re so curious and everything is so new. I loved watching my little one see things and start to understand them for the first time. I wish I’d captured it in film like you though! Thank you so much for sharing with #whatevertheweather xxx

  8. Aww, LM is so sweet! I love that stage, it’s great to watch them take everything in and learn more about themselves and their surroundings. I often wonder what it would be like to see everything so new again, it must be like us visiting a foreign planet?! My 2 year old still loves hiding his hands in his sleeves ad poking them out, he thinks they are snails in a sleeve shell, which is funny! Love the videos. Thanks so much for linking up to #Whatevertheweather 🙂 x

  9. I love this post, I really need to get Little E out exploring more and capturing more videos. Your little lady is so sweet, I love all of her reactions to her new discoveries. As you get older its easy to forget what an amazing place the world is.

    Thanks for linking up with Small Steps Amazing Achievements :0)

  10. Aw sweet! My two are like this too – does take forever to do anything! & they always need to stand in front of all mirrors & kiss themselves. TK Maxx, which is full of mirrors is a nightmare! #SSAmazingAchievements
