25 Months Old
Yesterday CE turned 25 months old. Only managed to update his progress today as I was busy and tired after XY's Sports Day yesterday.
Weight - a drop of 100g from last month, probably due to flu.
Height - not measured but definitely growing taller. His pants do get shorter and shorter. Moreover, his palm can almost reach under the tap (at the basin) when he tip-toes. I don't have to carry him so I'll have both hands free to wash his thoroughly.
There's a slight improvement of speech, but very minimal. Although he pronounces most words by saying the last syllable, he does say some proper words. For example, "open" instead of "penn" and "Minnie" instead of "Ni".
His love for fruits has returned. The previous month, he wasn't too enthusiastic about eating fruits. Now he's happily munching them but can be quite selective. His current favourites are banana, persimmon and plum. Getting tired of apples and pears.
He's really crazy over rice. Sometimes he'll want to eat some plain white rice while we're having our meal even though he's just finished his dinner. We offered him rice crackers but he preferred rice! :-|
He's not too cooperative when we eat out. Less problem at home coz he's glued to the tv, watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. So when he's not eating properly outside, we'll give him biscuit or fruits, feed him his rice while he's eating the biscuit/fruits. Yes, he has fruits and rice in one mouth, eating them at the same time.
Or when our rice has come, he'll demand to have ours and not finish his own. He's happy eating plain rice that was from our plate.
He's very good at making Mickey Mouse. He uses the round stamper to chop 3 circles on the drawing board. When given some coins, he arranges 3 coins to make up the head and ears. While he's sitting on the potty and playing with the cups (used for gargling), he arranges them nicely and says "mouse ear".
He gives out a very high pitched scream, just for the fun of it. The more we ask him to stop, the more he'll scream.
He fake-cry a lot now. When he doesn't get his way, he goes huuu... huuu... huuu... (dragging the huuu). Totally irritating! Most times, we don't give in. So why is he still using that tactic?
He touches his "bird-bird" when he's not wearing a diaper under his pants. At first I thought he was signalling that he wants to pee, but looks like he's developed a bad habit.
