Does it just keep getting better?

By | January 13, 2011

I’m not really one for gushy posts about C.  I’m proud of her milestones as every parent is but I (hopefully) don’t really go on about it.  I’m going to make a bit of an exception today though, it’s my blog after all. 

Recently, we’ve been having so much fun with C.  She saying lots of words and, while she’s nowhere near speaking in sentences, she’s managing to string two or three words together and you can almost have a proper conversation with her.

She’s really funny too and gets more amusing every day as her imagination grows.  She’s named her little Duplo people Barry and Betty, while the man who lives in her Mega Bloks bus is Norman.  Admittedly, I may have had some influence with Betty and Norman but C named Barry all on her own.  We don’t even know anyone called Barry.

She makes us cups of tea with her little teaset, although you must ensure there is a spoon in your cup too, and uses the saucers to give us dinner (which you must eat with two spoons).  She gives her teddies tea and dinner, sometimes even her books or ball too.

There are so many things that she amazes us with on a daily basis and me and M frequently tell each other how great she is and wonder why can’t she stay this big forever.  But she continues to grow into a gorgeous, funny, sensitive little girl who makes me so happy and I just wonder; does it just keep getting better?

Oh I *love* that stage. They learn so much, and you get to be the ones they share it with! It does get better and better! Yes there are ups and downs, and 4 is a horrid age for a while as they really push their boundaries and such, but all in all, it’s all fun from now on! :)

Well, my C is only 3, so I’m by no means an expert, but yes, it really does just keep getting better and better :)

I’ve loved seeing my C develop into her own little person, with her own personality. My current favourite thing is when she replays stuff which i’ve clearly said to her once too often, such as:

Me: C, do you need the toilet?
C: No Mummy, I’m not grabbing myself.

Relish it!

Yes it really does keep getting better – Alex is 4 later this month and we are at the very peak of hilarity from his grown up sayings.Everyday he comes out with something new. They grow so fast though – savour every minute x

It does – their characters develop and there are even more laughs.
