Little Mister Independent

Oliver is now 27 months old and becoming quite a little character, he knows what he wants and how to get it!

Ha has always been a child who likes to investigate items by himself rather than being shown what they are and what to do with them, from the moment he could hold his own bottle he never wanted anyone else to feed him to now when I place his dinner on the table he will not have anyone else feed him his food unless of coarse it is from someone else’s plate.

Oliver doesn’t want to be in the pram anymore and we have the fight every morning, you know the one where the child goes as stiff as a brick and will not bend there legs so you have to resort into trying to bend them yourself. Oliver watches his older brothers walk every morning to the childminders and he wants to be with them, which is fine in the summer but in the cold miserable winter weather it’s not ideal. Every morning he will pick up his lunch bag, that he takes to the childminder and he will say straight away ‘Oliver walk!’ and then he will go and sit on the bottom step near the front door waiting with his brothers to leave the house. If Oliver had his way he would walk everywhere!

  1. He always seemed very independent but I guess having two big brothers will do that! Dylan wants to walk a lot but he gets tired and still has a long nap everyday so we nearly always have to take a buggy for him. I don’t think Dylan is particularly independent yet, but I know it won’t be long! Oliver sounds like a gorgeous little character

  2. Hats off to you for taking your wee-one to the underground WITHOUT a stroller! I don’t think I could do it! Sixtine is 24 months and she is a social butterfly – she loves people too much to worry about staying by my side so I can just imagine what it would be like in the tube!

  3. Bob is at this stage too. She wants to do everything herself and gets cross when I try to help her. It’s a problem when it’s something she really can’t do and it’s not safe. She thinks she’s a grown up. šŸ˜‰ Love the photo of the 3 of them walking. x

  4. Oliver sounds a lot like Ez, but as my guy is only 23 months old he doesn’t have all the skills or stamina to do all the stuff he wants to sans parents. They really do grow up so quickly!
