From the mouths of babes #52

Happy New Year to all my lovely linkers and if you’re new to the #ftmob community – welcome! From the mouths of babes is a weekly linky which invites you to share a post, old or new, about something your children have said. Those adorable mispronounced words, the glimpses into their imaginations, the blunt observations – whatever it is, I’d love to hear about it!


A big thank you to everyone who linked up last time. I loved Life with Baby Kicks’ family update and chuckled over a sequence of questions from her eldest thankfully ending with a less awkward one than expected! I also loved Mummy Tries’ post sharing some of the words her 22 month old uses – it was so beautifully written, I could almost hear him saying them.


From the mouths of babes #52 - My adorable toddler - Little Hearts, Big Love

Sophie is going through a very adorable phase at the moment and has some beautiful affectionate moments. My current favourite is the way that she will suddenly announce “Big hug!” and run at you with her arms outstretched. She might almost knock me off my feet at times but I love it.


She can be quite a little pickle though and sometimes Mummy gets a bit cross and shouts. One time I got annoyed with her, only for her to look at me, give me her biggest, brightest smile and say sweetly “don’t be ang-wee, Mummy. Gi’ me a tiss!” Who can stay angry when faced with that?


One afternoon, I was trying to call hubby on his mobile.  He was having signal issues at his end which resulted in me not being able to hear him at times. The conversation was punctuated with “hello? Helloooo?” All of sudden I heard a little voice next to me “Hello? Hellooo? Hellooo?” She was holding her water bottle next to her ear and copying me. Hubby and I had trouble continuing our conversation, we were both laughing too much!


The festive season can be rather exhausting and at one point, I was trying to have a sneaky doze on the sofa while the children were watching Peppa Pig. It was a little disconcerting to suddenly wake finding a toddler holding a cushion over your face whilst gleefully announcing “night night Mummy!”



If you have any posts about something that your children have been saying lately, please do come and link up. The linky opens each Monday from 6am and closes on Friday at 11pm so there is plenty of time to link up your posts (old and new posts are welcome!). Please add the badge below to your post so others know where they can also link up (the badge code is below). I will also try and share posts via Twitter – please use the hashtag #ftmob and I’ll do my best to retweet them. I also have a Pinterest board and will be sharing posts here too.

Looking forward to reading what your little ones have been saying this week.


Little Hearts, Big Love

  1. Haha, bless her trying to smother you with a cushion! They are cute when they ask for hugs, if I try to put mine down, she’s started saying ‘cuddle me bit longer’, it’s too cute to resist!

  2. Aww – ‘don’t be ang-wee’! So cute! Mine have various rather aggressive methods of trying to put mummy to sleep too! Welcome back #ftmob x

    1. Thank you – it’s funny when they’re a little over-enthusiastic with ways of encouraging mummy to sleep – hopefully it’s not a sign of things to come!

  3. Haha the “hello..hello..” reminds me of a time I went through a drive through and when I asked for a moment to see the menu my son from the back said, “yes, I would like a cheeseburger please.” and I laughed so hard I cried. the person must have thought I was crazy. 🙂
    We also still call kisses “tisses” around here 😉 I LOVE the baby words and don’t ever want them to go away.
    Happy New Year! And thanks for hosting again! 🙂

    1. Lol, we’ve yet to have that at a drive through – that would have made me laugh too. Brilliant! I think “tisses” is definitely a word that should stick. Happy New Year to you too 🙂

    1. My pleasure Laura – fingers crossed by the time he asks it, you’ll have an answer for him! 🙂

  4. You’re so lovely to include my post hon, thanks so much. Your girls just get cuter and cuter every time you do ftmob! Hope you’ve had a great start to the week x

    1. Aww thank you Reneé, has been a little challenging getting used to being back in normal routines again but we’re getting there! Hope you’ve had a good start to the week too x

    1. Thank you – it is funny when they copy things, makes you realise how you must sound sometimes though! 🙂
