Today you are three. You’ve turned from a tiny baby to a little boy in the blink of an eye. Ever since you surprised us (and the midwives!) with your very, VERY rapid entrance into the world, you have kept us on our toes.
You are the cuddly one. You are happiest when you are cuddled up to daddy or me. You still love to climb on my lap just to have a snuggle, and even when sitting next to one of us, you have to have a hand, or an arm or foot touching us. You still don’t like to sleep on your own, and as much as I sometimes grumble about it, I am making the most of any minute of your cuddles. One day you won’t want them as much. You love to dish out hugs and kisses – earlier this year when Harrison’s friend came round, you gave him a hug and a kiss. It was so cute!!
You are so much like Harrison in so many ways, especially as you get older and pick up on his funny little sayings and expressions. In other ways, you are so completely different. For starters, you can throw the most epic of temper tantrums and sulks. You have the arms folded, downturned mouth and ‘it’s not fair’ down to an absolute tee. It only takes one of us to pull a funny face at you and it is soon forgotten though, and when you bat those great big beautiful brown eyes at us, we can never stay cross at you for long. You know the power you have with those eyes, and you’re not afraid to use it!
We adore your funny little ways of saying things – asking for ‘Montin House’ instead of Monster House, and not being able to pronounce ‘S’. It’s hilarious when you stomp around the house shouting ‘Hulk, MASH!!’. Talking about Hulk – you are obsessed!! You even chat about Hulk in your sleep (yes, you sleeptalk. All the time!!!).
