Approaching Two And A Half

It’s hard to believe that Little Z will soon be hitting “Two and a Half”.

He is still very much my baby, to the point where we still call him “baby”. He always defiantly tells us his name is “Little Z”. He doesn’t like pet names or his name shortened.

He is fiercely independent and wants to do everything by himself. Yet at the same time, when we are out somewhere, he will come running to check that his mummy is still there waiting for him to finish playing.

He is ultra mischievous and charming all at once making you try very hard to keep that straight face whilst telling him off.

We know we have a little ball of energy on our hands, one who we know will love sports. And climbing. And throwing himself off things.

It is amazing to see he is already his own person and sometimes we catch glimpses of him trying to leave the toddler stage and become a little grown up all too quickly, walking with his hands stuffed in his pockets pondering something important.

    Love the photo, especially with the hands in the pocket look

    Gorgeous photo and I often find it amusing when my youngest child’s mannerisms mirror that of someone much older than she is!

    Lovely photo – does somehow make them look older when they start putting hands in pockets like that. Another good one is hands behind back and rocking slightly! 🙂

    I love it when they try to be all grown up – he looks so cute with his hands in his pockets!

    Love the way he has his hands in his pockets! I can’t believe how old they are getting, feels like I’ve watched him grow up as they were only a few months old when we started blogging! X

    Sometimes they just stand or pose or be in such a grown up way it’s terrifying isn’t it?!

    Aww, what a lovely picture. He looks so cute with his hands in his pockets. I also have a fiercely independent nearly two and a half year old. All good fun!

    It is SO amazing to watch their personalities develop isn’t it. Brings me such joy 🙂

    Two is such a wonderful age, adorable pic! x

    Cute! I am loving this age really. My wee man will do the hands in the pocket thing too, copying his daddy. Sometimes he seems so grown up way too quick!

    Aw, what a cute little man!

    My 3rd old is growing up too fast. I wish their was a pause button to capture these precious days!

    Love how he has his hands stuffed in his pockets. From two and a half they really, really come into their own. Little A is near three and a half now, and she really is a little lady now who loves shopping! X.
