Being new to the blogging world, I obviously haven’t kept a little diary of how my little boys are growing, so I thought I would begin now, as a way for me to look back and see what their little personalities are like at certain ages. They are growing far too quickly and I want to remember so much of their little lives.
My biggest boy. My first baby, the one who I’m learning with every single day about how parenting goes, and what I should and shouldn’t be doing. He is the one teaching me this whole parenting malarkey. I must say he is an angel (most of the time). We have been going through a bit of a tough stage, with tantrums coming from all directions, screaming, the good ol’ toddler selective hearing, and just general toddler behaviour, but I must say that it is quite rare and more often than not he is an absolute angel.
Finlay has always been such a brilliant eater, and I’m really pleased to be able to say that he still is. We luckily haven’t reached the picky eating stage, and I’m hoping we are the lucky few who don’t! My boy will literally eat anything that’s put in front of him, and I have to say that fruit is definitely at the top of his must haves! (Along with kinder eggs) woops! He is feeding himself most of the time, but I have to admitt I’m awful for feeding him when we have spaghetti Bolognese and messy things like that! I think I’ve just gotten myself in a bad habit!
I’ve really noticed Finlays speech is coming on so well, he can say lots of words, and is now putting sentences together, however there are some words where he cant quite get to grips with the sounds of the letters, but things like this never worry me as I know all little ones learn things at their own pace. Finlay hasn’t started nursery yet, but we have FINALLY booked him a place in September. We left it a little too late, and the waiting lists for nurseries in the town I live in is ridiculous. I cant wait for him to start, I think he is so ready, and I think it will build his confidence no end. Finlay is very shy when it comes to meeting new people and tends to hold back a lot, something I think he gets from me! I really think nursery will help this and help him to feel a little more confident in front of others.
Dancing and singing is something Finlay absolutely adores and is definitely taking daddys taste in music! He absolutely loves take that (my husband will kill me for that), but its so sweet! he can actually sing the words, and follow the tune of the music, he’s also really clever at picking up dance routines! Something I think is really quite clever for his age, to be able to copy what the people are doing in the music videos is quite hard, I don’t even think I could do!
I am so so proud of how he is growing and the kind hearted person he is becoming. I cannot believe just how quickly he is growing up. I wish I could just stop time and have him at this age forever. He really is such a sweetie.
