An Interview With T at Three

You may remember last year I was tagged by Lauren from Scrapbook Blog to take part in a little interview with T just as he was turning three. It was really cute and I was astounded at how much his personality shone through at such an early age. Not to mention how his language was coming along.

Now that a year has passed, I thought I’d do it again, just before turning four, and share the differences in comparison to last year’s. I’m hoping to make a regular thing of this.

Just like last time, we sat down after breakfast and asked him the following questions, writing down exactly what he said…

Milestones: Four Year Update

Here we are again, in what feels like a flash of light, recapping on the past twelve months.

I’m very aware that I say this every year, but I can’t believe how quickly time is flying. I think this year has been the most prominent, not only because he’s changed significantly this year, but we’ve now entered into the home stretch towards starting school.

For us, and most parents, this is a HUGE milestone and signifies what feels like the end of the “baby years”. Of course this is ridiculous, the baby years likely ended as soon as they started toddling, but in my head, because Sharon and I are his primary go-to people, because he spends the majority of his time with us, it feels like an end of an era.

It feels like yesterday I used to spend my days at baby groups.

Milestones: T’s First Trip to the Cinema

For the past year or so we’ve been introducing T to feature length films. Starting with short films like Room on the Broom and The Gruffalo, which we viewed over Christmas or on long car journeys via Hopster. We then started introducing him to longer films on rainy days and seeing how far he would go before his engagement would naturally drop.

We are huge film buffs in this house, so it was natural that we were going to introduce him to films as soon as possible. One of my favourite past times as a child was watching films in our dressing gowns on a rainy afternoon.

A Day in the Life Photoshoot

Even before T was born I enjoyed taking photos. Whether it was photos of local landscapes, my wife, our dog. I enjoyed capturing moments so the I could cherish them and look back on them in years to come.

I often tried to get in on the picture too, but I quickly noticed that this resulted in the photo looking less ‘natural’. Whilst I’ve captured lots of lovely photos of us over the years, which I will also adore and cherish, a staged photo doesn’t really tell a story like a natural one captured in the moment.

T at Two and a Half!

I didn’t actually plan on doing one of these until T was at least three, however over the past six months since he turned the big zero-two our not-so-little boy has changed so much! From his language to his character to the way he reacts to situations. Two and a half has become such a huge milestone in his development that I don’t want to keep quiet about it.

I just can’t believe how much he’s changed in such a short space of time – physically and mentally! Things are happening where I say to myself; “Were you doing that yesterday?” or “I didn’t know you could do that?”.
