Little Owl @ Two and a Half!

Two and a Half!  Isn't that so terribly grown up! 
@ Two and a Half, Little Owl is starting to use the potty completely on her own, occasionally presenting us with a full pot.

@ Two and a Half, Little Owl will climb the stairs on her own to fetch something from her bedroom (believe me, this is a long way and lots of stairs!)

@ Two and a Half, Little Owl has just grown two more molars, only two more milk teeth to go!

@ Two and a Half, Little Owl can swim several meters on her own, but hasn't worked out how to breath while swimming yet!  Little Owl can jump into the water and swim back to the side on her own, without any buoyancy aids.

@ Two and a Half, Little Owl has some concept of past and future, telling us that things can happen "later" "in a minute" "tomorrow" "Tuesday" "Friday" "next week" or if an event has already taken place it happened "yesterday" whether it was this morning or months ago!

@ Two and a Half, Little Owl is convinced that she is a "cheeky monkey" and therefore isn't a "good girl", "clever girl" or indeed any other type of girl.

@ Two and a Half, Little Owl has started asking "why" again but now has better comprehension to follow the conversation too.  "Why has the sun set?" led to a conversation starting with the sun being tired and going to bed, through the Earth rotating on an axis around the sun right up to God creating day and night.  Not sure how much she took in but it was quite fun exploring the subject!

Little Owl, to borrow your words, I love you "all much"!


  1. They grow up so quick, don't they! Thanks for linking up to the #binkylinky

  2. Wow! You're right about Little Owl and Potato being so similar! Potato was 2 1/2 yesterday. He can swim about the same, with the exact same breathing issue! He's just getting a hang on passage of time too and also relative size - 'mummy big; elephant big'! Nice!

    1. Oh so glad I don't have the elephant comparison! Didn't realise how close in age they were!
