I just can't believe it..


I actually can't believe I'm typing this, my not so little boy is THREE today!
How did time go by so quickly? surely he was only born yesterday and all of this is a dream?
It's seriously been the quickest three years of my life, three years before Finley came along defiantly wouldn't have shot by as quick as this. He's grown up so quickly and sometimes i wonder how we've managed to cram all that he's learnt in such a short space of time.

Finley has come on leaps and bounds in the past year, on his last birthday he could hardly mutter one or two words, now you can't shut him up for longer than a minute. He started nursery for 15 hours a week in January and it's made him come out his shell so so much. It's utterly crazy that just 10 months ago he couldn't even count to 3 or say hello, now he can count to 20, say his whole alphabet and he even asks people "you alright?" or "is that nice?" if they're eating. So amazed by everything he's achieved this year, if you're ever considering sending your children to nursery, do it! It's truly the best thing that's ever happened to Finley.

He's still ever so tall for his age, he's now in 3/4 or 4 years clothing, which i know is now his age gap but he's been in 3/4 for around 6 months now. He's also in a size 8 shoe which (correct me if I'm wrong) normal for his age so that's something.

He's also managed to ditch the dummys this year too, something which i thought he'd struggle with the most, but nope, he's done amazing in going cold turkey and throwing them allllllll away. He's in the transition to giving his pushchair up too, he walks a lot longer in the past few months as I've really tried to encourage him to walk to nursery and sometimes into town to do some shopping, but he sometimes asks to go in it, but he's still quite young yet so he's okay to have it a little wile longer. He just recently (a week ago) got a big boy bed as he's managed to stay in his cot till now, he's done so well and taken to it amazingly. He climbed straight in the first night, read a bed time story and went straight to sleep. Only problem was when he woke up he didn't want to get out, all he kept saying was "mummy my big bed, my big bed" so happy he doesn't hate it like he did his cot.

We are spending his birthday doing exactly the same as his past two, and chilling at home opening his presents, letting him play with his new toys and maybe a treat tea out for his birthday dinner. Oh and not to forget to mention Finley's favorite part of the day "Chocolate cake mummy, for my birthday" as he's told me every day since we brought it last week!

Can you actually believe it.. IVE GOT A THREE YEAR OLD! Madness.

  4. Amy always had big feet. When she was 11 months old, she was a 6.5. Her shoes always looked massive on her :D

    1. Wow that is big! I think Finley was a 4 when i got him measured at 12 months. His feet thankfully don't look too out of place with him being tall xx
