Harry's Current Favourites

In today's post I want to talk about some of the things Harry is loving at the moment.

It's crazy how fast his interests are changing at times. Somethings he really gets stuck on and others he is only interested in for a few weeks or months.

As you may know Harry is nearly 3 - Where did that go?! His personality is really coming out now and he isn't afraid to let you know when he doesn't like something or doesn't want to do something, but he is also really expressive when he enjoys something or wants something so at this stage, its been really easy to recognise what some of his favourite things are now.

1. Sausages.  Anyone who really knows Harry knows how much he loves food, so its not really surprising that the first thing on this list is a food item.
Harry's loved sausages from the first time he tried them. Every child has that one go to meal for when they just wont eat anything else, and for Harry that is definitely sausages, chips and beans. He loves the sausages and I have honestly never seen a child eat anything as fast as when Harry is eating sausages!

2. The Twirly-woos. Harry finally seems to have found something else to watch on the TV. I think Sam and I were really starting to get sick of Mr Tumble and PAW patrol that we were desperate to get Harry to even attempt something else - Not that Harry doesn't still love Mr T and PAW patrol. We are still objected to this most days as well - But when Harry saw the Twirly-woos it was instant and he screamed when we turned it off.
I sometimes question how many times a child can watch the same three seasons of a programme but it doesn't really seem to bother Harry that hes seen every episode 4 times already he will watch and watch. It has gotten to the point where me and Sam wish we had never put it on... But if Harry likes it, just like with Mr Tumble and PAW patrol he can always have it on. We just love to see him smile.

3. Alexa. I am extremely lucky that I have two Amazon Echos and so a few months ago we decided to put one of them in Harry's room as we spend a lot of time in there, and Harry is obsessed.
Its becoming a regular occurrence to hear him shouting 'LEXA' at the top of his voice. He does tend to get frustrated that she doesn't seem to understand his signing yet but we are hoping that this will also encourage his speech and getting him to talk more.

4. The Gruffalo.  I don't really know what to say about this one - Harry has always loved books but there is something about the Gruffalo that really excites him. The book is one of the only things that he will sit still and listen to all the way through.

5. Slides Harry has always been a big fan of the swings whenever we go to the park - and we have enough pictures to prove it! But since moving up to the toddler room at nursery and having access the 'the big garden' with a climbing frame and slide, he hasn't given swings a second look. Its all about the slides.
He's really independent with them too which used to terrify me, but now i love watching my little daredevil - he seriously has no fear and will just throw himself down the slide!
