33 Months Old
Statistics (measured on 18-2-09)
Weight - 13.9 kg
Height - 98.8 cm
I've started brushing his teeth with toothpaste (First Teeth). Initially, he swallowed the toothpaste but after a few weeks, he's able to spit them out. Then gargle with water.
He walks up the stairs without holding on to anything. His hands are out-stretched a little to balance himself. It looks very scary/dangerous coz he walks quite fast, one foot at a step, like how we do.
He admits that he's a naughty boy and sometimes calls himself that. And when he's in a cheeky mood, he'll say I'm a "naughty boy" and he's a "naughty girl". When I correct him, he'll keep saying the same thing and smile cheekily.
With me, he prefers the soft approach. He ignores me if I raise my voice/shout at him. In fact, he purposely continue his mischief if I do that. But if I tell him nicely (for example "Please sit down, don't jump on the sofa"), he'll listen and comply.
As he's afraid of PaPa (most of the time), when PaPa threatens him with a cane or raises his voice, he'll quickly oblige. Looks like he's bullying mommy. :(
Educational and Non-educational Programmes
Thanks to jie jie, he's been exposed to other cartoon channels on tv apart from PHDC. Sometimes he'll ask to watch Powerpuff Girls, Tom & Jerry or Mr Bean. And if there's a VCD that he likes, he'll keep watching it over and over again.
A few weeks ago it was Gogo's Adventures with English (1) where he learnt to say "My name is Cheng En" in response to "What is your name?" Then I taught him "How old are you?", which he replies with "I am 3 old old". hehehe
Current favourite VCD is Barney's Night Before Christmas. He can watch it over and over again. And he wants it on, even when he's not sitting in front of the tv.
Jie jie is the unfortunate victim. For no apparent reason, he'll hit jie jie on the back, hand or head. He pulls her hair. He likes to disturb her when she's doing her homework (take her eraser away). He snatches whatever books she's reading. He snatches whatever toys she's playing with. :-|
But he can be very loving towards jie jie too. When she's crying or when she's being punished (stand at a corner), he'll go hug her.
If I detour to buy something on the way to fetch jie jie back from kindy, he realises that we're not on the usual route and asks "Where jie jie?"
Likes to jump on the sofa and bed. *sigh*
Likes to play 'tent' - wants to be covered under the blanket, preferably with company inside.
Very helpful. Sometimes he'll standby with the hand towel outside the washroom when I wash my hands.
