Two and a half

Someone has turned two and a half.

I think this particular age is a challenging one. I'm not talking so much about the crazy obsessions (lord help me if I cut her sandwich into triangles and she wanted squares) and public meltdowns, but the letting go of the 'babyness'.

Emerging from this sweet little head is such a force of personality that it knocks me off my feet sometimes.

I find (mostly) that I can't get enough of her deliciousness. But then when the 'No! Mummy do it!' gets rolled out for the 100th time in a day, well... yes, it's challenging.

But this moment in time, the sweetness, the comprehension, the blossoming... ah, I'm so privileged to be a part of it.

What a girl!

Well, they don't call it the terrible twos for nothing ;-) She looks adorable though so I don't believe she's causing you a moment's bother ;-) My youngest is currently going through the feral fours!

Aww. Yes, I am hearing you, especially now since my baby is now 2 and a half too!

At three, our toddlers 'Me do it!' has lessened from several hundred times a day to just a couple. Funny how quickly they pass through these phases, but how intense they are at the time. Now he's acting out because we have a new baby... Thank goodness there's more good than bad. :)
