Pickle at Three and a Half Years old


It has been a while since we shared an update all about me with you! I am three and a half years old tomorrow, so this is the perfect time to tell you how I am (and what I am) doing.

I had my first proper hair cut on March 17th and my curls have stayed, yay! Mummy is very happy!

I still use my potty, I have not made the leap to using a big toilet yet, but have started using the little ones in school.

My current best friend in school is Jayden.

I have been putting my own coats and jackets on for the past few weeks.

Yesterday I put my pants on for the first time.

three and a half years old

Taken 2 April 2016

My shoe size is 8 1/2 G – I am due to be measured again, this was when I started school and had my new school shoes.

My clothes size is 3-4. Mummy has just started buying some in Age 4 rather than 3 – but it depends on the brand.

Mummy last measured my height on 27 February and I was 1 metre tall. We have no idea what weight I am, but I am solid!

My favourite food is cheese, yoghurts, bananas, grapes, pasta. I love spaghetti hoops and peas too. I eat very little meat. I LOVE chocolate and Kinder Eggs.

I still only drink water. I am still on Lactofree milk, I can tolerate a drink of cows milk, or some with my cereal, but not both especially if it is full fat milk.

My favourite toys are Super Heroes – especially my Imaginext Batcave, Gotham City and all the Super Heroes. I also love Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and the current McDonalds toys – An Adventure Time.

I love listening to Marina and The Diamonds, (thanks big sis) and lots of new singers (thanks big bro) such Sean Mendez, Stitches and Twenty One Pilots, Stressed Out.

I love watching Cheaper by the Dozen – (I love Beans the frog) and when the children are mean to Nora’s boyfriend, Matilda – especially when she glues her dad’s hat onto his head, and very recently Mrs Doubtfire – my favourite is the party with the song ‘Jump Around’.

I start going to bed at 7pm – but it can take over half an hour for me to go to sleep. Mummy, Lea and Luke have to read me at least one story each. I still love Peppa Pig Recycling, as well as Strictly No Crocs.

I go into Mummy’s room and bed at some point in the night, and we wake up with lots of snuggles. I can wake between 6.30 – 7.30am.

My favourite colour is blue. And black. I recognise most letters, and numbers and the other week I read out Mummy’s number plate to her! I know how to spell my name, and wrote it for the first time in Mummy’s Mother’s Day Card for 6 March.

So, that is me right now at three and a half years old!

  10. Aww your little man is one month older than mine. He is doing so well bless him. L is using the toilet as I skipped the potty but he still hasn’t got the hang of number 2’s! It is driving me crazy, he just prefers to do them off the toilet which is causing me so much grief!
