A letter to my youngest son, turning three!

 Dear Avery, 

                        You have just turned three! It's amazing just how much has changed in the last year. You've grown taller, become so independent and self assured. A great trait to have in life. 

Another trait that has shown up is your defiance, which is great because we want you to question everything in the world, although it is a little frustrating in daily life with you at three years old!

The last several years my letters have been all about the long list of things that change in an entire year, which in a way this one will be too. However at the age of three I find that less and less happens in the milestone side of childhood, the first several years are full of moments parents wait for and rejoice in celebrating. So I am starting off in the was I always do with your big milestones of the year. The biggest milestone you hit this year has been your speech! You have started to talk after so long in silence and using hand gestures to communicate. Now you can say lots of words, you also completely skipped over baby talk and single words. So you speak in short sentences and are quickly becoming clearer. 

Along with your speech has come a huge part of your personality that we've all missed out on until now. Your are so funny and you know it! Your also full of energy & love to join in and play. Now that you can talk you tend to join in with Dylan and Scarlet to play their games alongside them and your working on your sharing skills. You have so many favourite things that you enjoy playing and copying too which is definitely helping with your speech and your vocabulary. 

Another set of new skills you are particularly working on is being more adventurous, You've always been very cautious about trying new things, especially climbing! Now your giving almost everything a good go. Your becoming quite fearless, we recently went to a soft play with vertical drop slides where you went down once unknowingly and then decided to just go again despite terrifying yourself. You also love to explore and find things in nature, be it low down or even high up in the trees, you just get us to help you up. I'm looking forward to seeing your skills grow even more in the next year. 

Every year we find that your favourites list will grow and change, I think this year has seen the biggest changes and lots of growth too. 

Your current favourite things are:

  • Oranges
  • Apples
  • Carrots
  • Cookies
  • Green and red
  • Small world toys
  • Toy shopping trolleys
  • Dogs
  • Climbing 
  • Colouring in
  • Cuddly toys
  • Paw Patrol 
  • Spidey and his amazing friends
Finally, last week we found out you got into nursery! So come September you'll be headed off to nursery in the morning with Dylan and Scarlet, which your very excited about. We know you hate being left at home, now you'll make a whole bunch of new friends, how cool!
