It only seems like a matter of weeks since I wrote to you on your 1st birthday and again on your 2nd birthday one whole year ago but already you are celebrating your 3rd birthday.
You've changed so much this last year and have become a proper 'big boy' now, able to do lots of things yourself and usually insisting on doing them yourself even when you can't quite manage it yet. Last month was a big milestone as you started wearing your 'big boy pants' and you have done so well at using the toilet.
You love lots of different programmes, and you chop and change through different favourites each week from Shrek, to Toy Story, and Cars to name a couple but nothing comes close to how much you love Thomas the tank engine!
You play with your tracks and your engines every day and astound me with your knowledge of them, now you can name almost every character there is (there are about 65 I think!) and give us random bits of information such as their number or what part of Sodor they work on!
You are very inquisitive and constantly asking 'Why' along 'What does "insert random animal" eat?', 'What country does 'random person/ thing' come from?' and the most recent question - 'How does that work?' You often have me lost for words as I try to answer all your questions.
You love meeting up with your friends, and you are desperate to go to school like the rest of them even though you don't really know what that is! I hope you like it when you go in September as much as you think you will!
You have your 'challenging' moments but I imagine it must have been annoying at times being 2 years old, you can be an absolute star though, polite and friendly and always happy to meet new people. Many people have said how polite and clever you are. You like to 'listen to the instructions' and you understand them even if you then choose to ignore them!
You are very imaginative which pleases me as you must have got that from your Dad! It's fascinating to listen to you playing and to hear your stories. You are also very clever, knowing many words in Greek as well as English now and you can match up your upper and lower case Greek alphabet better than Grandad can!
I hope you have enjoyed your party and have lovely birthday and enjoy being three years old!
