26 Months Old
Here's an update of 26 months old CE:
After he was discharged from the hospital (end of June - viral infection), he didn't quite like bland food anymore. He didn't want to eat what we cooked specially for him. Instead he wanted to eat what we're eating. So I gave him some of our food, just so he'll eat more to get back his appetite. From then on, he's been promoted (food-wise) - with a bit of light soya sauce or sesame oil in his food.
He has more bowel movements in a day after the vomiting and diarrhea episode. Previously, he only does his big business once every morning. Sometimes he'll poo up to 3 times a day coz every time he goes into the bathroom (for a bath/wipe), he'll want to sit on the potty. Luckily this only happens at home and not when we're out.
Well, more like dislike to be 'asked' to bathe. Whenever I ask him to go upstairs to bathe, he'll not cooperate. Even when he's already inside the bathroom, naked, he'll still make a fuss. But after I start to bathe him (wet him), he's fine with it. Weird fella. I wonder if this is one of the phases that all kids will go through.
He's very into 'driving' lately. At every chance he gets, he'll want to be in the driver's seat, turning the steering wheel. There was once when I was going to fetch XY back from kindy, he wanted to play with the steering wheel. But I told him he can only play after we're back home. So he cried all the way from home, to kindy till we almost reached home. :-| After 2 or 3 days of crying, he sort of gets the idea that he can only "pooh pooh" (that's what he calls car) after we reached home.
He's not too resistant to brushing his teeth anymore. He likes to stand on the chair and look at the mirror while I brush his teeth (still without toothpaste). And he's mastered the art of gargling! Yay! Sometimes he'll still drink the water, but he knows how to spit it out.
New Favourite Programme
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is no longer his No 1 tv programme. Ever since Dibo: The Gift Dragon started in July, he likes to see this purple dragon more. I've downloaded the theme song onto my laptop and he can watch it many many times (more than 10!). I'll put the cursor at the Play button so when the song's finished, he can just press the left button. Sometimes he'll press it many times (play, pause, play, pause) but after getting a stern warning from me, he'll stop pressing unnecessarily. Coz if he continues, he won't get to watch it anymore. Well, sometimes he's not that obedient. He'll only stop after I whack his hand.
He can now recite "one, two, twee, por" very well. The numbers after that are not very consistent. He surprised me one day when he said "ten, ewen, tell". Must have learnt 11 and 12 from the tv. :)
As for recognising numbers, he's more familiar with 3, 4, 8 and 9. He gets them right most of the time (but not always). When he sees 6, he'll say 9.
