Oh H, you are getting smarter, funnier and more argumentative by the day. But there is so much going on I find myself laughing or in awe at what you do only to forget too minutes later. This list would be so much longer if my brain didn’t keep leaking memories! You’re really making us laugh now though. And you can be really helpful too – bringing things, picking things up. Often without being asked as well. But if we catch you on a bad day / hour / minute then boy do we know about it. Your growly shouting can either make me laugh or cry depending on how I’m feeling. Then the whining really offends my ears. Earlier in the month though I told you that all I heard when you whine is “Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee” in my ear; I now make that sound whenever you whine and more often than not you can’t help but laugh and be your best smiley you again! You are, as always, my lovely big girl but there is no question about it now – you’re a full blown Threenager!

At times this month you’ve been an enigma to me my (not so) little one. You’re mine is developing at such a pace now that your astonish me with the things that come out of your mouth. You make some really insightful and mature observations about things. Your mastery of the English language also continues to grow no end. We’ve found this comes at a price though as you are very stubborn at the moment. Every bath time has become a Mexican stand off which results in Daddy getting cross, me staring blankly at the bathroom wall in disbelief whilst holding Zoe and you crying, declaring you want “Nana-Grandad”. This routine has even spread to Bubble-Sink days so pre-bedtime is not something any of us enjoy right now. But we’ve seen these phases before so I hold out hope it’ll pass soon. And until then you are doing more than enough sweet or funny stuff to make-up for. Although I may invest in ear plugs for the bedtime crying…!

Wow Little H, it’s been a hectic month but you have been on top form! You’ve tested us with a few tantrums but for the most part you have been hilarious! In fact, you’ve been so funny that I’ve not managed to capture even half of the hilarious things you’ve done. You had a virus in the middle of the month which was a shame, but you fought it off really quickly. Little Z has been lucky to have lots of cuddles from you too. You’ve really stepped into the role of being a big sister now. If I’d kept a note of everything you ‘saved’ for Little Z when she’s older, it would have a filled an A4 page! (It included a crayon, a yoghurt lolly and some of your new summer tops!). But onwards to the amusing things you did this month…

Dear Little H,

This has been a big month for you because it’s seen the arrival of your baby sister, Little Z. I was anxious about how you would react when a new person was suddenly introduced into your life, demanding the attention of Daddy and I. However, as with everything, you’ve been a superstar! You’ve had a few moments of jealousy but for the most part you have been so patient and accommodating. You also love kissing and cuddling Little Z.

I’ve found it a rather strange month both knowing you’d soon not be my only child and then having both you and Little Z to care for. I was so scared that you would feel I’d abandoned you and distance yourself from me. But I am so relieved that hasn’t happened. At times I know you find it strange Mummy can’t do everything she used to. But you still regularly tell me I’m your best friend and come to me when you’re sad and need cuddles. Even though Little Z is here, you’ll still always be my little baby!

So my lovely, this is the last update I’ll write for you before you become a Big Sister. It’s hard to believe that we’ve reached that point. It also astounds me how much you’ve changed since I first found out that this was going to happen. You’ve gone from being a toddler to a big girl and I couldn’t be more proud of you now and how independent you are. The threenager stage is still kicking in hard, but I feel like I’m finally learning how to manage it and you are learning your boundaries. At times it’s been tough when I’ve been tired but I’m pretty sure we’ve had fewer fall outs these months. But above all you’ve been really sharing your caring side as I have been more tired and Daddy has been suffering from a horrible cold. Nothing makes us feel better more than a lovely Little H snuggle! I can’t to see how much you’ll look after your new brother or sister. You’re going to be awesome!

Happy third birthday Little H!

As clichéd as it sounds, I really am not sure where the last 3 years have gone. I vividly remember you being such a small tiny baby that I was both in awe and fear of! You’ve changed so much in the last three years and yet in that time I feel like I know you inside out. I can’t imagine a world without you now. Not saying you don’t test my patience. This month you’ve grown ever more independent and self-sufficient. In some ways it’s a joy to watch and in others it makes me feel sad that you’re growing up so quick. I’ve been a bit better at capturing some of your highlights this month but baby is making me tired so some are lost in the depth of my mind. But hopefully some nice memories here for you and, as always, some fab photos!

My dearest Little H,

It’s been so long since I wrote and update on you, how you’ve grown and changed, how you’ve made us laugh and (on a few occasions with some of your newer tantrum states) cry! So much has happened in the last 4 months that I am going to fail to capture so many of your gems. The reason for my apparent ‘lazy’ behaviour? Well it was 3 months ago we were finally able to tell you that, all staying well, you’ll become a big sister early next year. Growing your sibling as well as working and looking after you has properly wiped out your mummy. However, I have been adamant the whole time that I won’t let these ‘diaries’ stop. So, here is my attempt to catch-up and hopefully get back into my routine again! I’m so looking forward to Christmas this year because you are so excited. I’m looking forward to sharing next month’s update too.

Hola Little H,

This month has seen you back to your normal self. You are slightly more clingy to me than you used to be, but after your upset at nursery you went back to happily going in just as quickly. It was a real relief and Daddy and I don’t like it when you’re unsettled. You’re speech has cranked up another notch and you’re interest in things like schedules, routine and days of the week is growing day-on-day. It’s been a long time since you’ve tired me out this much too though, for reasons I go on to mention. But you more than make-up for it with your funny antics and affectionate behaviour.

Here’s what happened the month you turned 2 and a half years old!

Little H,

Every month I am astounded by how you develop and grow. This month is no exception! I really cannot believe you aren’t even two and a half yet! You’ve done so much this month including a lot of growing and developing. The end of the month has been a little tough though as you got a horrible virus which has thrown you off a bit. After several nights with a high fever, you were then really unsettled in yourself to the entent I took a day off work to keep you home after 2 bad days at nursery. You’ve become very attached to me since then which, whilst I don’t mind, I hope passes because you’re usually such a social creature! But never fear, you’ve had lots of positive moments to remember this month too:

Little H, we’ve had an awesome month doing on lots of fun activities. You have astounded me yet again by developing every day. I swear you spend more time telling me what to do than the other way round! You’ve also been testing me again so mummy has had to develop her ‘Patience’ super strength even further. But I have loved every minute of it. Well, almost 😉
