23 Months


23 months – just one month now until you’ll be turning two! I know all parents say it, but where did that time go? It seems like just the other day we were bringing you home from the hospital but here you are rapidly growing up into a little man.

Your kind side has really come out this month – you’ve started saving your last grape / piece of biscuit for me and then feeding me it. You even handed me have the little biscuit that came with my coffee at M&S the other day – normally it’s swiped from under my nose before I can get a look in! Despite loving your food, you’re clearly a much better sharer of it than I am (although I’ve had to get better at this since you arrived!).

When we’re watching In The Night Garden before bed, you like to stroke my hand during the intro, just like the mummy (or Daddy?) does to the little boy or girl on the screen. You’re definitely a big fan of TV these days – we’re having to put a few boundaries in place on this one, which you’re not a fan of. You have a great sense of humour though, and regularly burst out into peals of belly laughs at someone that’s happened on the TV.

You’re so cheeky at the moment – you love to play hide and seek, closing the door and then knocking loudly, before flinging it open and shouting “Hello!” You’ve also started randomly licking my face, which I’m not totally sure I’m a fan of – I think I laughed the first time you did it which encouraged you! Big mistake there.

Although you’re Mr Independent at nursery, you still don’t like to walk anywhere and would much rather that I carry you. I’m building up massive arm muscles but I think the end of your carrying days are in sight!

I can’t believe that your next update will be your 2 year one – a baby no more!

    What a little love. There little habits can be so sweet, perhaps not the face licking though ey. I’m with you – two babies have given me arms of steel! #bigpinklink xx

    Awwww, this is so lovely! It really really does fly. My small boy is the same, so sweet and caring. He is always stroking my face and kissing me and he’s 3.5. There are some things he does that are less then cute though, and all because I laughed once!! Huge mistake! Your little man sounds like a lovely little boy and he’s super cute in the photos. Thanks for linking up with us again. #bigpinklink

      Thanks Kaye – two seems so grown up, doesn’t it? I don’t remember feeling quite this way when he turned one!

    Aw he’s such a cutie. My youngest is 18 months now and just starting to develop his own little character and emotions. It’s such a lovely age. Happy nearly birthday little man!

      It really is the best age! (I think I’ve thought that with every month recently though!) It’s so lovely to see their character start to come out.

    Oh I love him! He’s starting to look a lot like you now – I can really see you in the second picture here! Maybe he learnt to face lick from Poppy? She’s a big fan of trying to lick his face! xx

      Do you think? I’m still not seeing it but it’s always nice when people see something of me in him! Maybe it was Poppy that gave him the idea – perhaps he’ll be a bit less freaked out next time she does it to him!!

    It’s amazing how quickly they grow, isn’t it? It’s also a great age where they start showing their personality.

    Ahh this is such a lovely age when you start to see their little character emerging. I laughed out loud when I read that he licks your face. Toddlers are so funny!

    Oh how sweet a great insight into a near 2 year old. I’m looking forward to the days when my little one hands me something or strokes my hand! That’s a while off, so I shouldn’t wish the time away until that day. I hope that you have an excellent 2nd birthday for your son. Claire x #BigPinkLink

      I’ve been very guilty of wishing the time away – particularly the first year – but the second year has whizzed by! Thanks so much Claire – I’m looking forward to the birthday celebrations!
