Leo update – 2 years 6 months

Today my baby boy turns 2 and a half. I know I probably say this every month but, seriously, where is the time going? Before I know it he will be starting school, learning to drive, moving out and all the little things that happen in between. As Leo is now 30 months I thought I would do this months update a little differently. Being a half birthday after all, I have decided to list 30 facts for 30 months, to make this monthly update a little more special. I am going to note down all of Leo’s little ways as, despite the tantrums, this is such a fun and lovely age and I don’t want to forget a second of it.

Happy half birthday Leo, in another six months you’ll be three – ahh! This is what you are like now you are 2 and a half..

30 facts for 30 months..
1. You are obsessed with Room on the broom.
2, If I let you, you would watch Thomas the Tank all day.
3. Every morning you have to have Weetabix or Chocolate Hoops for breakfast, otherwise there are tears.
4. Your minion wellies are your favourite shoes.
5. You love to sing Old Mcdonald had a Farm in a funny, deep voice.
6. Biscuits are your favourite thing ever.
7. Puddles make you happy.
8. Every night I have to read you 3 stories before you will settle down to sleep. You always ask for more.
9. The swings at the park terrify you, but you love the slide.
10. When you want me to take a photo of us both you ask can we ‘go in the phone’.
11. You call squash ‘purple’ and refuse to drink plain water.
12. You can be nasty to Jessy the kitten sometimes.
13. When I get you dressed you insist on every item of clothing being put on your feet first – lots of your T-shirts are stretched.
14. When you cuddle me you make really cute little ‘aww’ sounds.
15. If I try to get you out of the bath you splash around shouting ‘I swimming!’.
16. You don’t actually like it when we go swimming.
17. You prefer to take your toys apart than actually play with them.
18. Daddy has invented so many silly games with you, there are too many to list but you love them all.
19. You call colouring in ‘cull-a-lin’. It’s very cute.

21. Whenever you give me a kiss you always say ‘kiss’ first – again, very cute.
22. You have horrible tantrums sometimes that make me want to cry,
23. I have to drive/push you around in the pram for at least 20 minutes every single day for you to go for a nap.
24. You talk about your winky too much!
25. You talk about your family a lot, I think you miss then since we’ve moved.
26. Exploring the woods or the beach is when you are happiest.
27. You are a chocoholic, you get that from me.
28. People are starting to say you look more like me, since you were tiny you have always been a mini version of Daddy,.
29. Raw carrots are one of your favourite foods but you won’t touch them if they are cooked or mashed.

    Aww he's so cute – I laughed at number 11 – my daughter calls juice 'purple' as well, how weird! x

    Awww so cute! It's a lovely idea, and a quick way to save so many memories of him right now πŸ™‚ #bloggerclubuk

    This is so cute, they grow up so quickly it's scary sometimes. It sounds like Leo's really developing his own little character which is lovely. #BloggerClubUK

    aww great pics and love the 30 things bit. 2 and a half seemed to be such a turning point for Boo. I'm hoping it doesn't come for quite a while with G πŸ˜‰ #MaternityMondays

    Aww you have a little while to go yet before G is 2 and a half. I know, since Leo turned 2 he is changing all the time, it goes too fast xx

    Ahh what a lovely list. This will be amazing to read when Leo's older! My little lady just turned 3 – she too loves chocolate. It's adorable that he says kiss before giving a kiss. That's the kind of thing you could forget if you don't have it written down. Thanks so much for sharing with #bloggerclubuk x

    Glad I'm not the only one with a chocoholic child! I would definition forget so many of the little things if they weren't written down!xx
