Bella at Almost Three

In just two short weeks Bella will be turning Three and I honestly can’t quite comprehend how we are here already. These last three years have absolutely flown by and without a doubt they have been the best years of my life. Although Motherhood is definitely a journey, one that I still don’t feel like I have properly sussed out. But I’m so grateful every single day for this girl of mine for making me a Mama. I thought it was about time I did a little update as we approach her Third birthday!


Bella at Almost Three

Bella is definitely wise beyond her years, sometimes I forget shes still so small as she just knows & understands so much these days. Our conversations on the way home from nursery are my absolute favourite, she tells me about her day in such detail & I so hope that never changes. The ‘Terrible Twos’ have been pretty testing at times, the older she gets, the more feisty she becomes and as much as I love that about her, it can be such hard work some days. Sass aside, she really does have such a kind heart & is so much fun, she is super cheeky & has the best sense of humour, she’s always making me laugh with her quirky little ways. She’s so eager to learn, to try new things & be as independent as absolutely possible lately but she still loves cuddles, although only on her terms of course! Always looking out for others & adores all things babies, I love to watch her as she plays with & Mothers her dolls, it’s honestly the cutest thing. The girl is a total performer –  forever singing & dancing wherever she goes. Ballet is definitely the highlight of her whole week! Completely princess obsessed & I’m pretty sure she believes she is a real life princess, sometimes only responding to ‘Elsa’. Sadly still doesn’t sleep very well & has recently taken to shouting out the most ridiculous things in her sleep in the early hours – ‘I want marshmallooooows’ at 2am was my personal fave 😉 Her favourite food is definitely pasta but she’s also quite partial to fruit, yogurts and baked beans too. Always happiest when outdoors adventuring or at home colouring or crafting.
For someone so small, she loves life so hard & I couldn’t be prouder of her! She might drive me up the wall some days, but I love her more than I could ever put into words <3

    She is totally adorable and i am sure butter wouldn’t melt! They do grow up so quickly but their sense of humour is amazing. My grandson is two and he has such a great sense of humour. I’m sure he will be just like Bella when he’s nearly three 🙂

    Oh she’s scrummy! I think she’s got a point- marshmallows at 2am should be a thing! I’ve got a nearly 3 year old too- it’s a great age, I’d like to bottle them!

    She sounds like such a character!!! I’ve got a 2.5 year old and I love how much she talks and her take on the world. I didn’t realise they could start ballet at this age! I’m definitely going to look into my local ballet class. I love that she wanted marshmallows at 2am! We often get night wake ups where our daughter requests the sun to get up and get dressed now, so she can too! xx
