At 3 years, 11 months, 2 weeks and 6 days old

- You are starting to develop quite an attitude. I'm forever hearing 'no way' and 'it's not fair', all I can say is it's a good thing that you're so cute!

- You are finally starting to show an interest in learning to write but you refuse to hold your pen properly. You are so proud of yourself when you form letters correctly.

- A few weeks ago you brought home from Kindy your first drawings of Mummy, Daddy and Uncle James and they actually resembled people! You've never been into drawing so this is a big deal.

- You love books. One of your favourites is The Great Animal Search book. You love finding/looking at all the different animals in their habitats and learning more about them, though sometimes I don't know all the answers to your questions.

- You recognize all the letters of the alphabet and know most of their sounds. Lately you have even started connecting letter sounds with what letter word's begin with. You are always coming up to me and asking me what certain word's begin with. Of course I let you figure it out for yourself which doesn't usually take very long and you're always so proud of yourself.

- You are becoming more independent. You will happily take yourself to the toilet and can even put your own trousers on. Occasionally you'll come out with them on backwards but most of the time you're pretty good.

- You love to sing and I always hear you singing at night time when you're supposed to be sleeping!

- You hate shopping and would much rather stay at home and play with Uncle James.

- You love bouncing on your trampoline and you'll often go out there to have some time to yourself.

- You are quite bossy and demanding and all you want to do is play with those around you. It can be difficult when there are other thing's that need doing.

- At the moment your favourite TV programs are Dora the Explorer, Go Diego Go and the Wonder Pets. Since it's the school holidays at the moment you get to watch them everyday and you also enjoy playing the games on the Nick Jr website. I'm quite happy about this as compared to the PS3 games that you like to play, at least they are educational and you're also learning very basic computer/mouse skills, which let's face it are really important in today's society.

- You still drink from a sipper cup even though you are perfectly capable of using a normal cup.

- You like routine and have to have some thing's done in a particular way/order.

- You have your own quirky sense of humor.

- You are super ticklish and tickling the backs of your legs makes you squeal.

- You love throwing balls but I've had to make a new rule - no throwing balls inside - as your aim isn't the best.

- You now sleep in your bed without the couch pushed up against it to keep you from falling out. I put a mattress down on the floor just in case and one night we found you sleeping on it, not once but twice.

- You are eager to grow up big and strong like Daddy. You keep telling me all the things that you will do when you're big like Daddy.

- You never stop talking.

- You LOVE cars, I'm sure you know more about them than I do and you'll happily stand for ages at my bedroom window and watch them drive by.

- When you grow up you want to be a Policeman.

It's good to take a step back and remember some of the little things. Love you baby boy xx
