Three Year Update

Just when I thought things can’t move any faster, our son is now Three. Comparing it to all the other years, last year especially, I am confident that this has been the fastest year yet.

You’d think that after settling into our routine after T started nursery when he turned one that things would have slowed down and continued at a nice pace, but no. Things have only moved faster. Due to a combination of busy weekends, holidays, and general milestones happening weekly, we pretty much hit the ground running every day.

Whilst this is fun and it’s great that we’re never bored – several times throughout this year I could have done with a pause button. Our days are flying by and our baby is growing up way too fast for my liking. It’s hard to keep track of everything and there are days when I look at Sharon and ask; When did he start doing that? or When was the last time he did this? I miss that.

Our 2017

This is year has to be one of our busiest yet. I thought having a new born and then a young baby kept me busy enough, but a toddler is a whole different experience entirely. 2017 has absolutely flown by, and to compare 2017 to 2016 I can’t believe how we’ve managed to fit it all in!

Ignoring the negatives for just one second, I’d like to recap over our year by joining in with Lauren over at Scrapbook Blog as part of their ‘Share Your Year’ linky.

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?”.

Two Year Update

It goes without saying that the past year has absolutely flown by and I’m now going to be completely predictable and say the old saying of; ‘it feels like yesterday’ that T was a baby and just turning one. But it really does. I can’t believe he’s now two years old.

With T starting nursery and me returning to work full time I’m not surprised that the weeks have flown by. We’re set in such a busy routine of work, swimming, weekends that there’s often zero time to just stop and observe. As soon as T turned one it felt like all the milestones were suddenly being reached. Walking and talking to name but a few.

Our 2016

Wow! Where has 2016 gone? To sound like a cliche, it feels like I was only writing my 2015 update yesterday!

Aside from all the death, 2016 has been a mixed bag for us. We’ve had our fair share of sickness; with T picking up everything from conjunctivitis to hand foot and mouth within weeks of each other, but we’ve also had some amazing adventures at the same time.
