Marnie at Two and a Half

Hi there,

Today, Marnie turns two and a half! I thought I would dedicate this post to her.


Marnie is super stubborn and strong willed. I know this will stand her in good stead throughout her life but right now it can be a real pain in the bum! She knows exactly what she wants and a lot of the time there's no reasoning with her. But, she is also the funniest child, she has me laughing so much!


If you have met Marnie or if you follow me on Instagram you will know that she literally never stops talking. Her speech is so good, it is like talking to an adult. I absolutely love that I can have proper conversations with her. Her memory is also amazing, which means she'll start talking about something that happened 6 months ago but she remembers it in perfect detail.


Marnie absolutely loves to sing and dance. She is quite shy about it though so tends to reserve this for when she's at home with us and we have disco's in the kitchen! Shes been walking since 14 months so is very confident on her feet. She has recently learn to scoot. I want to try and teach her to pedal on her trike next!



Her most favourite things are her Muzzy and Elsa (Compare the Meerkat Elsa!). She takes them everywhere. Unfortunately she chews her muzzy so we have to wrestle it off her to wash! She also loves playing with puzzles and small toys such as some miniature Frozen figures and mini Go Jetters. Her favourite thing to do though is dress up. We have a growing collection of princess dresses which she just loves to wear!


Her favourite books are still Lucie Goose and Duck in a Truck. She also loves Dear Zoo and  Yoga Babies. She has two stories before bed each night and one before her nap, but she likes to read between sleeps too!


She asks for the same lunch - sandwich, cheese and crisps! Her favourite dinner is pesto pasta with yogurt for pudding. She loves fruit, pear is her currenr favourite. She is hit and miss with food. Some days she does really well others she won't eat much. She still only drinks water or milk, we've not let her try squash or juice yet as we don't feel there is a need for it.


Marnie loves to watch and join in with TV and Films. Her favourite TV Programmes are Spirit, Word Party and My Little Pony which are all on Netflix. She loves Disney films, she likes Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast and Snow White.

She is such a funny, lovely little girl and we are so lucky to have her in our lives.



  1. What a lovely post! She looks like such a sweetie, and shares many qualities with my 2 1/2 year old! How fast time flies hey? Enjoy every minute. Can't believe my big boy will be turning 5 in July! x
