23 months and counting…

Dear Elliot,

Wow! In exactly one month you will be officially a two-year old. How did that happen so fast?

I now realise what so many people have told me in the past. It goes so fast! Maybe it’s because I’ve been back at work for the past year, but 2012 has gone so amazingly quickly I barely feel like I’ve had time to catch my breath, let alone keep up with this blog.

My new years resolution will therefore be to document our lives a bit more regularly. I find myself waiting for the ‘important things’ to happen for me to write about, when in truth I should be writing about every little thing you’re doing – like how you can now recite the Thomas the Tank Engine theme tune, or do the actions to ‘Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes’, how you know your alphabet and can count to 12, and how you say ‘night, night’ every night as you rest your head on your pillow. You are amazing and I promise to take notes more regularly in future so we can all remember how fab you were aged 2!

In the meantime, one of my favourite pictures from Summer 2012, for reasons that you’ll understand one day when you’re a big boy.

All my love,

Mummy xxx
