I’ve been really struggling for the last few weeks to get the balance right between the blog and time just concentrating on Monkey. We’ve been away a lot, which is wonderful, but caused a backlog of commitments here. I’ve felt like a bad Mum, I needed to spend some time just enjoying my son, enjoying those last precious days of him being a 3-year-old. So I apologise for the lack of personal posts recently, for not joining in with linkys for a couple of weeks, for not reading or commenting on blogs. I just needed to step back a bit. My baby is nearly 4 and I can’t quite believe it!
So this is my What’s The Story? post for the week – it’s a bit of a montage of the last year with Monkey, just some of my favourite photos of him. Very self-indulgent, but he’s my one and only, my baby, my little boy, my wonderful little man.
My baby is nearly 4, in fact, tonight will be the last time I put a 3-year-old to bed. In the morning he will be all grown up.
Every year is more magical than the last. This last year has seen his speech develop and blossom. He can say why? to me as many times as he likes, I’m just so amazed by how much he’s come on in this last year. He is no angel, although this Wednesday and Thursday he hopefully will be one in the Nativity Play! So glad it’s not me trying to getting him dressed up for that! He is very loving and caring, is fascinated by anything mechanical, loves nature and is a joy to be with, most of the time.
What will this next wonderful year have in store for my little boy? Will he finally decide he wants a bike, will he decide he loves climbing frames, will his addiction to bananas subside, will he still love trains, planes etc etc etc, will he still tell me he loves me over and over every day? I just hope he has a happy year, full of adventures and exploration. Another year of growing (but please feet, please stop growing!!) a year of making friends and hopefully being a little less reserved. My baby is nearly 4 and I love him, so, so much 🙂
