miles {three}

When our baby boy turned three (back in January... oops) it was a big step for our whole family... firmly out of the toddler years and into a new season of family life. Such a big boy now!

I love to watch my little ray of sunshine grow and grow.... keep smiling, sweet son xx

This is his 'If I furrow my brows and look distressed, will you give me
what I want?' look. It's familiar ;)

Miles, at three, you are your own little man. We often joke 'It's his world, and we are just living in it!'. You are supremely independent, always on the go and always busy with your own little plan and ideas. You entertain yourself so well and love best of all just chilling with your family. You are incredibly charming, funny, sweet and affectionate. You know how to pull heart strings like no one else, Mr Charisma! You also know how to pull a smile with your cheeky ways!!! You are such a happy and joy-filled boy, full of affection and sunshine - with the occasional stormy cloud, we must admit ;) You adore your big siblings but also know how to hold your own ground with them. You have the strongest will of the three (lucky we have already had some practise, heehee) and I know that your passion and self-determination will serve you well in life, if you keep your focus on worthy goals. 

You are my beautiful baby boy and I just adore you to pieces! Our quiet days together this year, just you and me, have been dreamy and delightful and stored in my heart as a most precious season. I love to watch you grow, dearest sMiles xx


Lego, colouring, cars, trucks, diggers etc, porridge with blueberries, 'fixing' anything with tools, 'working' on anything, 'helping' always! Cuddles and kisses and being super affectionate! 

He says he likes...Christmas


Loud noises (vacuum cleaner, hand dryers, hair clippers). 

He says he doesn't like...Screaming (I sense an auditory theme!)

Contemplating what it means to be three...

The birthday celebrations...

In our family, the birthday person gets to choose their own cake... whatever they like. Except when you turn three. Then you have a jelly cake. Because Mummy found a photo of herself having a jelly pond cake when she turned three... and 3 year olds being fairly suggestive, was able to get all three of her kiddos to choose the same for their third, haha!! Well, Miles also wanted a gorilla cake, so I made it happen?! 
For the boy who has everything (thanks to older siblings)... a bug catcher kit and his very own flashlight. He was thrilled!!
Inspecting the Daddy Long Legs spider. He has been quite scared of them so hoped this would help calm his nerves... it did!
Bad photo but shining the light into the jelly cake was a huge hit!

A family fun activity for the birthday boy... bowling! First time for the clan, we had a blast x
Getting a little assistance...

Serious business.
Her 'quietly proud for getting a strike' face.
