Look at that concentration. When you make a conscious effort to hold the pencil the “right” way it’s a gentle reminder that you are growing up. It’s bittersweet! Love you.
Grandma’s in town so you’ve been having so much fun! We went to a farm, hung out with your cousin, and ate lots of yummy food with daddy & mommy. Feeling really fat but happy
It’s fun seeing you express your 2 year old self more and more through drawings and song. You love tracing your hands, drawing circles, and the rest is “abstract art.” Your favorite songs to sing right now are twinkle twinkle little star, ABCs, Wheels on the Bus, and Itsy Bitsy Spider. Thought I’d make a video for you to see I love this stage where you’re learning everything so quickly but still have a little bit of baby still left in you
We started going to pre-school and today you had a field day getting Valentine’s treats! I appreciate the moms who gave tangerines and pencils as their choice of sweets. Mommy and daddy might have to “help” you eat some of the other goodies like the skittles and chocolates No need to thank us, we’re happy to do this for you. =) You’re enjoying all the new activities at your new schools besides your Valentine’s party such as circle time, story time, arts and crafts, and of course snack and play time. It’s fun for mommy to watch you have so much fun too!
Sometimes daddy and I think you might be colorblind. We don’t seriously think this since we know you’re still developing and learning, but you often mix up colors. For example, we were at the mall at you kept saying that this was Clifford the big BLUE dog. I told you it was a red dog but you kept saying “blue dog!” oh dear. Hopefully it’ll click one day…otherwise we’ll have to go see an eye doctor! haha!
Today you hit a new milestone of sorts: you had your first lollipop. We were making valentine goody bags for your friends, filling them with sweets and love, one of the treats being dumdums. You never had a lollipop to know that it’d be delicious, but somehow you knew as you said “open this one.” And staying in your beastly character, you literally bit off pieces of the lollipop and were done with it in less than 5 minutes time. Why slowly lick a lollipop when you can bite the whole thing off?? You never cease to amaze me. Lol!! Needless to say, you thoroughly enjoyed it.
Hey birthday boy!!!
I can’t believe my little baby is not so little anymore! You’re a big TWO year old. We took you to the Children’s Discovery Museum today and you had SO much fun. Your favorite station was probably the water exhibit, not surprised You got soaked from head to toe, also not surprised, hence why mommy brought an extra change of clothes. After our day time adventure, you took a quick nap then we continued the celebration with more family time! We had Thai for dinner and you devoured your pad-see-ew dish per usual, always asking for more. Then we topped off the night with an ice cream birthday cake (from coldstone!) to which you responded “Wowwww” at first glance. Exactly son. We spoiled you with a generous slice on your birthday =) And of course you asked for a couple more bites off mommy’s plate. How can I say no? Mommy and Daddy gave you a train set as your gift since that’s all you’ve been talking about lately. To say you loved it is an understatement. We’ve never seen you get “attached” to a toy so quickly before. You held “Wilson” with the tightest grip for the rest of the night. This is the first time you’ve done that! Hehe..makes mommy happy to see you so happy.
Here’s a video mama made recapping our day time fun. =) Enjoy love-bug.
Each night before bed, we thank God for all of our blessings. You usually request both mommy and daddy to pray while holding “bear bear”. These days we’ve been asking you if you want to pray and the past two nights you offered your sweet prayers to God. Tonight your prayer went a little like this…
Tonight: “Dear Jesus, thank you soccer ball…elmo…daddy…mommy…abcs…gege (cousin)…nainai (grandma)…basketball…new toys…”
I’m glad we made the list! You probably mentioned a few other things, but we had to cut you short. Hopefully long prayers isn’t a stall tactic for bedtime! LOL
Love you son!
You’re turning two tomorrow! yahoo!
Happy New Year’s Eve! Here’s a video mama made to celebrate our journey together in 2013. It’s pretty cool to see how you’ve improved in walking, going down a slide, and playing basketball.
Some 2014 resolutions for you -
* no more drooling! (you’re still wearing bibs!)
* potty training (we had to take a break because of family business)
* no more whining (please…haha)
Excited for 2014, little guy!
