I Can See You Too!



5 signs that my J is all grown up:
  • Sits in a 'big boy chair' at the table, not in his high chair
  • Drinks out of a glass, not a sippy cup
  • Refuses to wear a bib
  • Feeds himself with a spoon and fork
  • Insists on having a placemat to rest his plate and bowl on

Playing with his food - Some things never change, do they? Whatever their age!

  3. Ah - I remember when D got to this stage - although he had to have a booster for a bit of time, he's a little short!

    1. J insisted on the 'big boy chair' even when his head could barely reach the top! All I could see was two little eyes peering out looking for food :-)

  6. Aww. I remember when my eldest started doing those things, and I was so emotional cos it did seem like omg he has really grown up! My husband gave him a proper adults mug to drink out of and I cried lol - he still mocks for me that from time to time!!! Never bothered me as much with the younger two, think I learned to adapt a bit more!

    1. I know what you mean. It is a milestone, isn't it? They are no longer our babies. They are suddenly all grown up, independent.

  7. It doesn't take long for them to want to be independent.

    Thank you for linking up

  11. Ah that seems like a long time ago now - although sometimes they regress - still occasionally feed the 6yo!!

    1. I do find it strangely satisfying if he asks me to feed him. Though I wouldn't want to do it all the time, I suppose.
