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.

Our 2018

As years go, this year has probably been the most emotionally draining year. It’s also been even busier what with us entering the home stretch to the world of school. I thought last year was a busy one, but as T is getting older the years seem to be passing us at the same rate as his legs. If I’m not working, we are out and about, seeing friends, or squeezing in a holiday or two, and whilst I honestly wouldn’t change it for the world, I wouldn’t mind a few more days with T before his next growth spurt or developmental milestone.

I know I say this every year, but this year was by far the best one when it comes to T (it probably wasn’t the best as a whole though, which I explain later on). As much as we’re getting further and further away from T being our ‘baby’, with his independence growing rapidly, I’m thoroughly enjoying having a three-nearly four year old and the magic that comes with it.

Here’s what our 2018 looked like. If you’d like to read about our 2017, you can find this here.

Milestones: 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?”.
