This month we're combining her 21 month old update with our 'wot so funee' post this week as there is one thing she been doing that really makes us laugh. We have no idea why she does this. (We do have a cat but the cat doesn't like coming indoors so she's not copying our cat as far as we can tell). This is at least a daily occurrence (sometimes several times a day), and each time she does it she will run around the table about 13 or 14 times.
She spent the day with Granny and Grandad on Saturday whilst we had our amazing day at Waitrose Cookery school (there's another funny video of Miss T on that post too) and the first thing she did when we got home was her 'cat routine'.
See what you think and do let me know if you have any theories about just why our daughter seems to think she's a cat:
Now here's the less funny bit of her update but just things we want to capture and remember about her at 21 months old.
She's beginning to really enjoy messy play. Sometimes she gets upset at having messy fingers and wants them wiped before she carries on but generally she has enjoyed playing with shaving foam, flour and dough, glueing and water play.
I'm really looking forward to doing lots more of this type of activity with Miss T now J is back at school.

pirate viking video of her here), cowgirl or king, she is always grabbing hats (or 'at' as she calls them) from the dressing up box. Here she is driving her car (another fave activity of hers). Pushing pram and dolly is also something she loves to do.
We took her and her big brothers to soft play recently and it was the first time she was truly able to properly join in and enjoy the fun.
As for new words, just like last month there are just too many to list. She will also spontaneously say words like 'airban' (hairband), 'tan-koo' (thank you), noise, mess. She also knows the word 'bin' - what you don't see on our Christmas present opening video is that after opening every present, Miss T kept holding up the wrapping paper shouting 'bin' 'bin'.
We also think it is really cute that although she can say the word 'no' (often extended to 'nooo'), she hasn't mastered 'yes' yet and so instead will nod with her whole body for an affirmative response!
It still takes a little bit of interpretation and context to figure out a lot of her words. 'Duck' for example, can mean 'Duck', 'Dark' or 'Stuck' so it is only the context that gives us the clue about what she actually means when she says that.
And one last milestone to mention, we finally stopped breastfeeding around a week ago. Phew - what a busy month!
Now I just need to remember to link up to Wot So Funnee tomorrow.
