Nearly three

It's my birthday in about a week and apparently we are going to the Sealife centre which is fine by me I love fish. The shark on the website looks particularly interesting !

Recently we went to Centre Parks for another family birthday which we all enjoyed a lot. The swimming pools and slides were great as was the walk in the woods.

The wildlife was so tame we had squirrels sitting on the doorstep of the french doors hoping we would feed them!

I had my 2 to 3 year old check recently though I slept through most of the boring questions, I don't have a regular nap any more but I do like to grab 40 winks every now and then when I'm in the buggy or similar. Apparently I am on the 98% for both height and weight which mum says means I will be big bruiser of the family as my brother is about average in height and quite slender. I'm almost going straight into his old clothes as he grows out of them now as I'm noticeably over a metre tall and look more like I should be in the reception class at school which I will not be in for real for 18 months yet.

I can use the computer all on my own and find and play on Cbeebies with no problems, indeed when I close down mum's email without her permission I can go into the history find it and open it again when she tells me off!

The only thing I'm apparently not ahead on is speaking. I know lots and lots of words but pronouncing them so others understand them is not something I'm to good at so I ask them a long complicated question and they only get a word or two it's very frustrating! Mum thinks I am too interested in learning new words and should concentrate on practising the ones I already know a bit more but that's boring !  The lovely speech therapy lady said she wasn't too worried as I'm about right for my age but one or two things I don't do so well might be hearing related so I've been going to see these other ladies who get me to play a game about putting men in a boat when I hear a sound. It's fun for a short period of time but then it gets boring and they don't seem to think we should move on to talking about all the other cool things they have in their room so apparently I have to go back to see some other more important person who has more toys to play with.

Mum says I'm certainly not fully deaf but as hearing problems run in the family a bit it's worth double checking I'm not missing some bits as I don't seem to hear her often but again she thinks that is at least partly me not wanting to rather than not being able to. Mum also mentioned if I have her dyslexia that would explain struggling to pronounce things.

We are also moving on to a new allotment which has hedges all round so I will have less opportunities to run off around the site when we go up there but it does have a climbable apple tree !

Shoulder height

I'm up to my big brothers shoulder now ! He has just crept up to 120cm, an important height as it allows you on the bigger rides at Drayton manor. However I am now 95cms which means I'm still catching him fast, I was about 92cm at my birthday in March. Apparently you can gauge your final height from what size you are at 2 so that would make me going to be 184cm which is six foot or there abouts.

90cm is the height at which you can go on rides on your own at Dryton manor, at least the smaller ones but Mum seems to think I might not sit still well enough, however I really enjoyed all the rides when i went recently with nursery so she says if we go again with my big brother I might be able to sit next to him on some of them ! I liked the look of the Maelstrom and wanted to go on it but she says she wouldn't go on that one and anyway you need to be 130cm to even be allowed on it so that's my next goal then !!

Current obssesions

Spiderman and Ben Ten.. Particularly turning into spider monkey and Humongasaur or as I prefer to call him Dinosaur ! (a new one added - Buggy otherwise known as Big Chill!)

I now weight over 16kg and am big enough for a car seat that says from 4 years up! I am also to big for any normal buggy weight wise but I'm not fat as my height is proportional to my weigh.

We went out for Chinese recently which both me and my big brother enjoyed.

Huge footed Monster

Most kids coming up to their second birthday have about size 5 shoes.. I was wearing 6.5 G but mum thought they were getting too small.. so the lady in the shop measured me.. 7.5F but in the end the shoes that fitted are 8G.. mum seems to think that is a bit big for my age but they suit me just fine!

I am now at my brother's armpit! He'd best start growing or I'll over take him, though he will get even thinner if he goes upward anymore.

Silly brother doens't even know which way up glasses go !

He does however give me rides on his back which is fun !

Mum says I'm very much a little boy now. I sit by my brother and watch him play games and ask for Bee-bees (Cbeebies) on the compute. I like to try and play games on the Wii and pick my own videos and DVDs to watch.  I still adore books and dinosaurs and I chatter away all the time.

I enjoyed Christmas though most of my presents are still under the tree as I see no need to open more than one at a time.

I enjoyed playing qwith my cousins today. I am offically a couple of inches bigger than either of them even though they have six months on me, but I am big for my age and they are twins so had to share growing space for the first nine months!

Mum thinks the first of the next set of molars may be coming through judging by my current mood and indeed state of some of my nappies.

Still struggling with canines

My canines are coming through slowly, very slowly..resulting in much grumpyness and difficulty sleeping. Problem with canines is even after they break the surface they continue to have to cut thier way out because they are pointed unlike other teeth that break through all at once pretty much..
