Harry, at the point of writing this, can say around 20 words and most of them are only recognizable for people who have spent lots of time with him like us and his grandparents and even then we can’t always work out what he is trying to say.
Christmas and birthdays, we get what feels like hundreds of messages asking ‘What does Harry want?’ and the honest answer, we don’t know because he cannot tell us. Most children at 3 years old can ask for something specific or answer the question, ‘what would you like for Christmas/your birthday?’ with Harry, it’s as much of a guessing game now as it was for his first Christmas. I think we do well though!
Harry also can’t tell us when he’s feeling unwell, or something is hurting so I find myself questioning when he is misbehaving or acting slightly out of character, is it a stage? or is something wrong? Or am I just imagining it and he’s being a typical three-year-old?
