2 Years Old
Here's an update of my 2 year-old boy :
Weight - 13 kg (measured on 9-5-08)
Height - 91 cm (home measurement)
He starts to use more than 1 word in his 'conversation'. For example, "jie jie cry", "PaPa draw", "Mi sit".
He pronounces most words by saying the last syllable - "mish" (finish), "pern" (elephant), "zerd" (lizard), "bit" (rabbit), "ruff" (giraffe), etc.
Nowadays he rarely feeds himself. His eyes will be glued to the tv while we feed him his rice. Sometimes, he'll pick the food with his hands, then put into his mouth. The only way he can sit still to eat is when we switch on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (his one and only love) for him to watch. And every time at the end of the show (when they start to do the hot dog dance), he'll come down from his chair, even though he hasn't finished his meal yet. So we'll have to quickly switch on another episode for him in order for him to finish his meal.
He sometimes doesn't like to eat fruits. Will take a few bites of every piece and that's it. He also prefers to use his hand, instead of using a fork.
Not much progress in toilet training. He can sometimes tell me he wants to pee but usually he's wet his pants a bit. But I think he has some bladder control as he can wait for a little while for me to bring him to the potty. As for bowel movement, I can safely say he has very good control. He's not soiled his diaper for a long time already. When he wants to poo, he'll pat his backside and say "shee shee". And I'll ask him "sai sai"? Then he'll repeat "sai sai".
He can walk up and down the stairs quite well, by holding on to the railing.
He can switch on/off the lights and fan, using his index finger or thumb.
As he only turns in one direction for each hand, he opens the tap with his right hand and closes it with his left.
Still doesn't know how to gargle. Not too enthusiastic about brushing his teeth either. And he only allows me to brush his lower gum. He seemed to be in pain if I brush the upper part. I don't know why.
When he got scolded, he'll close his eyes tight. As if telling us, "I can't see you, I can't hear you." Then he'll open his eyes a bit to peep at us.
After his bath, he likes to run around naked, asking me to play catching with him.
He likes PaPa to draw on his palm (tortoise, Mickey ears, cat). Then he'll come and show me, "nice nice".
He doesn't know his ABCs but can recite some of the numbers. "One, two, twee, four, six, eight, nine, ten". I thought he was able to recognise the numbers when I showed him the Uno card. But it was a wild guess as I showed him the same number again but he gave a different answer.
He's still very generous with his kisses. Now we (PaPa and I) don't even have to ask for it, he'll give us a big wet smack (loudly) on the lips or cheek.
Really bullies me to the max. He doesn't want Kakak to bring him to the basin to wash his hands. After washing, I must be the one to wipe it dry. Doesn't want her to accompany him in the toilet while he does his big business. Almost everything I must do for him.
