My DD has just turned 9y and already has started to develop small breasts, gone beyond just the little buds now. Her waist is also now more defined and she has started to form a more mature figure - waist, hips, etc. I have noticed she has started to hold a tiny bit more weigh as well - again normal, and she is in now way fat or overweight still. We don't seem to have too many hormonal outbursts - but then she was never one for toddler tantrums either tbh. She gets weepy a bit more often and I am just starting to try and note if it is cycical at all. We have no sign of new hair growth or anything more, so hopefully that will be still a way in the future.
I gave my DD this book to read after we had a talk about periods/sex/babies/etc. We also watched a video together which is on teacher's tv. Really good video...we both had a giggle at it Just searched for it and I have discovered that teacher's TV has been axed by the coalition government! didn't know that, so we have lost the website with all the resources on!
I want it all to be as normal as possible and avoid as much embarrassment as possible, my Mum was awful with all this stuff so I'm determined to make a better job of it.
