28 Months Old

22nd September, 2008
CE turned 28 months old. Some of his updates here :

Alphabets & Numbers
He's recently shown some interests in learning ABCs. And he's picking them up very fast. The new educational series on PHDC, WordWorld, started just at the right time early this month. I think it helps a lot in his learning process. Now he knows about 75% of the alphabets. He likes to pick out the alphabets from the ABC mats and show them to me, saying the alphabet out loud. What a show-off. :D

He can count from 1 to 10. As for recognising numbers, he's still a little confused with 6 and 9. But he knows if it's not 6, it's 9 and vice versa. He can also countdown from 5. "Fais, four, three, two, one!"

Singing
He's starting to sing some songs, either when he hears it being played on tv or when we (me and jie jie) are singing. Those are not nursery rhymes but songs or theme songs from his favourite PlayHouse Disney programmes (Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Tiny Planets, Little Einsteins, Dibo the Gift Dragon). Usually he only sings the last word of each sentence.

Wash Hands
I try to make it a habit for the kids to wash their hands before and after eating. When he's in a good (and cooperative) mood, he'll go to the bathroom, switch on the tap and wash his hands when I ask him to "wash your hands". By the time he's at the basin, I'd be there beside him, to wash his hands. Can't expect a 2 year-old to wash his hands properly on his own, right? Sometimes he'll try to be difficult and insist that I bring him to the basin instead of Kakak. Other times, I'll have to drag or carry him (by force) to the basin. :-|

From Mie to Bamee
Out of a sudden, he starts calling me "Bamee" (Mummy). He's been calling me "Mie"/"Ah Mie"/"Mie ya" all this while. Have to keep correcting him, "I'm not Bamee, I'm Maaa... Mami". But I'm sure he'll get it right in no time. Just like when he suddenly said "seven" instead of "nyeyen". :-)

Bossy
He doesn't allow me to tie my hair or put on a headband. The weather's so hot lately so I tied my hair up (the back is a bit long already). He'll quickly come and pull off the rubber band. And if I put a headband (fringe too long), he'll remove it too. High time for my visit to the salon.

Happy 28 months old CE!
Haha...u r right, Gwen and CE really have similarities in their developments. He's better in recognising the alphabets compared to Gwen. 75% is very good indeed.
So funny, u also encountered the sudden change in CE calling u..haha..me too. Gwen used to call me "Mummy" but now she is calling me "Mama"..haha

CE's really clever to be able to count backwords from 5-1 at this age. Also can't help laughing at the thought of u being called BAMEE...ha ha...humour yourself while it lasts. It will just be a short phase, I'm sure. He seems quite possesive of u huh? Wonder what is going on in his little mind when he disallows u from tying up your hair? Maybe he thinks u look prettier in long hair! he he.

Happy 28th months old!

Hehe... so cute calling you Bamee. Don't worry, he'll say it properly one day. Give him some time to practice and also some 'reminders' for him to correct his mistakes... :)

Happy 28 months little guy!! It is so much fun keeping up with the milestones. I miss those days! Thanks for sharing. (:

slavemom said...

Mummy Gwen, "Mama" is still better than "Bamee". hehehe

Juana, VERY possessive!

Dora & Hui Sia, thx!

June, Siew Ting & mc, he must think that I look terrible tying up my hair coz the sides r all loose as they're too short. :)

Linda, actually his speech dev is quite slow, compared to other kids his age, esp girls. But no need to compare. Let him dev at his own pace.

Unc Lee, yeah... let him go boss ard his gf.

Alicia, not so hardworking anymore. These r not vy detailed.

Anggie, yes, Astro's WordWorld on channel 613. Every w/days at 8:30am n 7:30pm.
