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.

Bowel Movement
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.

Dislike Bathing
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.

Play Driver
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.

Brushing Teeth
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.

of course dont want special food edi. sure wanna try our food.
at least u managed to drag till 26 mths old, my kids at 16 mths old eating our food liao..duh..

giddy tigress said...

I also just learnt that kids are selective when it comes to learning numbers and alphabets. Never mind, just let him learn at his own pace!

Oliveoylz said...

He looks like a very "yau yeng" and pro driver...marvelous shots!

Dibo is a hit with SP too. I admit the song is very catchy...it's playing in my head now ;p

U.Lee said...

Hi Slavemon...looks like another Michael Shumacher in the making...
Its fun to see how boys tend to go for cars ata very age and girls for dolls...and girls grow up imitate their moms, ha ha.
Have a great week, best regards, Lee.

sting said...

Yatie said...

Anggie's Journal said...

Lovely Mummy said...

good to hear that he can count, my boy still saying "two, three, two"...pengsan, huh? but he can recognise all the letter from A-Z, but dont know why he still stuck at numbers.

LindaLow said...

So cute huh CE, his car is pooh pooh..:) Actually Brandon is like CE when he is about 2yrs old. Same weird buddy, don't like to bathe but once wet, don't want to get out of bathroom.. I guess it's just a phase they'll go thru.

JO-N said...

I love this scrap of yours. He's smart cos our food taste so much nicer. Your little driver can drive you everywhere very soon. They grow up fast!

Cheffie-Mom said...

slavemom said...

Wen, he's vy prone to allergy. That's y I delay as long as possible.

Joyce, yeah slow nvm, as long as got improvement. :)

Juana, "halo halo my name's Dibo..." kekeke

Unc Lee, somehow even at this young age, there're some distinct differences btw boys n girls. I rmbr my girl oso likes to play with the steering when she was much younger, but the interest din last long.

Siew Ting, as long as he poos at the 'right' time (not middle of the nite), in the toilet, he can poo as many times as he wants. hehehe

Yatie, u r absolutely rite!

Hui Sia, thx!

June, pilot huh... not bad, not bad. ;)

Hazel, so still hv to use cooked water loh.

Anggie, my boy not vy interested in Barney leh.

Shirley, mine's not considered counting, just reciting. :)

Linda, Brandon too huh?

Joanne, oooo... that fast? Slow a bit, pls. ;)

Cheffie-Mom, thx for dropping by n hope to c u here more often.

Chin Nee, thx!

Jac, boys n cars, inseparable. :D

Babybooned, he looked serious coz he din like the camera that day. :)

Bryan's Mama said...

There grow up too quickly yah?? :)
Hey, Bryan loves Dibo too!! What's with all things purple?...Barney...Dibo...!!

slavemom said...

Paik Ling, maybe with the success of Barney, they try to replicate that with a purple dragon.
