23 Month Update

Can you believe we are talking about your 2nd birthday little tyke? I just can’t believe how quickly the past year has gone! The first year felt like five years, but the second year has whizzed by! Our last update was at 19 months, but even in those few months you have changed so much!

Words and Sounds

It’s taken some time but you are getting there. So far you can say a variety of individual words such as “Daddy”, “Mummy”, “Cat”, “Car”, “Dog, “Banana” and “Ball”. You like to sing songs and some of the words can be quite clear sometimes. You love making animal and vehicle noises, especially dinosaur noises “Raaaaaarrrr!!!”.

Play

You can play with other children now and like to play ball games. Much to Daddys delight, you like football! I think your favourite toys would probably be your slide and your cars. You are also a crafty little man and love painting.

TV & Film

At the moment you like Thomas the Tank Engine, Octonauts, In the Night Garden, Tellytubbies and Peppa Pig. Also, Mr Tumble sends you into a strange little trance, what is it about that guy? He bugs the heck out out of me, but you seem to like him. You don’t have the patience to sit and watch a whole film but you have watched quite a bit of Finding Dory. Great taste little man!

Food

You love, love, love your food. I think we are very lucky with you because you will try most things. I think your favourite foods are bananas, grapes, biscuits, cheese corn snacks, roast dinners and spaghetti bolognaise. Oh and like Mummy, your favourite treat is a bit of cake!

Clothes

You fit into 2-3 year old clothes for the length, but the waist bands on the trousers seem too large. So your trousers keep falling down! I try to put hats on you but you pull them straight off. I have managed to get you to wear sunglasses though!

Behaviour

You are a funny little laddie. For such a long time you were as good as gold when eating out but most recently you have become such an impatient little fidget! It can quite frankly be a bit of a nightmare. Shopping is also a no no at the minute. Thank the lord for internet shopping is all I say!

New experiences

You have just come back from your first holiday and have also experienced your first trip on a plane. I was well prepared with snacks and entertainment, but you fell asleep! Just as we took off the ground! We have our big holiday in September, fingers crossed you do as well on the next flight.

I look back fondly on the past year little tyke, but look forward to all the changes and developments for the following year. Next year you will be three and just thinking about that makes me a little bit emotional. My baby boy is growing up, but I couldn’t be prouder of you little tyke. Love you lots and lots, Mummy xxxx

  1. Time really does go far too quickly! It’s so nice having little kiddies that love their food, makes things so much easier. And Mr bloody Tumble! He seriously has an amazing effect on kids , Lydia has a big smile on her face whenever he comes on. So glad your flying experience with him was a breeze xx

    1. He loves food now, but he was such an awkward little so and so when it came to weaning! Same with naps, he used to be terrible but now he has a good 2 hour nap every day. They change all the time. So your little one loves Mr Tumble too lol I don’t know what they see in the bloke 😬

  2. So adorable!! He seems like such a good little boy – you’re lucky! That second year does go by fast. I like the 2-3 year as well; they say so much more and really get interested in more things and how things work. It’s a lot to look forward to. 🙂

      1. Yep, tantrumming twos…. Although the threes are tough, too, in that regard. I’m still waiting for it to get better – when does it? 4? 5? I think kids really must take awhile to be able to process their emotions without tears and yelling.
