This is late, as usual, but I wanted to write a quick update for W as it’s just under 3 months til he turns 3!
Since his last update he just keeps getting better and better at talking! Very inquisitive little learner, full of questions…trying to get his head around dark, early mornings – ‘Is it morning, or is it dark?’ Food – ‘is it hot, or cold?’ ‘Where we going?’ ‘What’s mama doing?’
He uses descriptive words e.g.’Beautiful boy’ and ‘I’m going to have a big bum sleep’ (no idea what that means but he thinks it’s hilarious!) and uses words like ‘see’ at the end of sentences and ‘either’.
He knows the alphabet and when we’re out and about likes reading out letters on signs etc!
He’s full of imagination, and memories. The other day he looked out to the garden and remembered eating lollipops out there with me and my sister which would have been many months ago!! He loves regaling us with stories from his day…. ‘mama and dada and W and S went to the beach….’ and loves playing pretend shops, trains and alien spaceships!
Behaviour wise he’s still good as gold most of the time but he has his moments. He thoroughly enjoyed Christmas but when we got back to routine in the new year, he was tetchy and slapped me, his dad, his nan on a few occasions. Thankfully that phase didn’t last long!
He loves being outdoors, running. He loves softplay, messy play… any play. He loves watching Paw Patrol, Blaze and the ‘washing machines’! and has started getting into films like Frozen, Lilo and Stitch and Minions. He won’t sit and watch for the whole duration… he doesn’t stay still for long! His favourite thing ever though is ‘play cars’ which is usually the first thing he asks to do when he wakes up!
He still LOVES his little brother, he’s far more interested in him than mama or dada! He’s good at keeping him entertained and loves making him laugh, and singing to stop him crying!
Eating is much the same as the last update. Thankfully he’s ‘going’ much more regularly and hasn’t been constipated for a few weeks now. Since the last update he finally showed the dentist his teeth! And took the nasal flu spray like a pro… he’s a good boy!
Even though at times he eats like a horse, he’s very lean! He mostly wears age 2-3 with some 3-4 tops but bottoms I find so hard to fit as 18-24 month are too short but most 2-3 too big on the waist… thank god for Zara leggings!
See you in 3 months for the big birthday update!
