Two more months to 3 years old

You are really a demanding little girl who knows how to wrap everyone around your finger.
As you are the youngest in the household, you get your ways at time.
However, most of the time you would have to face Mummy and be satisfied with whatever Mummy gave you.

You enjoyed music and would also asked to listen to your Japanese songs whilst in the car.
These songs were also sang in school when you attend Japanese classes on certain days.
Hopefully, you would be able to pick up a third language easily with the exposure from school.

You also just started attending Sunday school.
You enjoyed it and promised that the next time you would not cry.

You seemed to have an immense interest in learning.
Hence, conducting homeschooling lessons at home in the evenings was an enjoyable process.

At 2 years and 9 months old...

It has been a long time since the last time Mummy updated your little space here.
Let see ...

Your love for books has lessen but has grown and would ask anyone to read to you.
You will insist to carry a book along with you when we are out.
This is very much like your sister.

You love to sing and will sing your way home in the car.
You also like to insist that your sister sang along with you.

You learn very fast and have been showing off to us what you have learnt in school.
Zoo phonics songs... naming shapes... naming animals...

Mummy tried to start some homeschooling with you but the progress is rather slow because of a lot of distractions.
Mummy will try harder to keep to the schedule.

You like to watch Barney, Tigger and Friends, Thomas the Tank, Mickey Mouse on Playhouse Disney...
Your favourite is still Tigger and he is your best-est friend.
You have a total of 5 Tiggers, each for different use.
Your 'rattle head' Tigger is your fave and you would cry for it when it went for a bathe.

You love to work on puzzles and so today I pulled out some from cold storage.
You worked on them independently the whole morning and enjoyed yourself.
Good work, little one!

2 years and 1 month old going on 2 years 2 months old

Some of the things that you like to do at this stage are...

Looking pretty with your sister

Pulling and tugging at Daddy's chest and back hair.

Making funny faces when we whip out the camera to take a picture of you.

Trying to imitate your sister ... here you are trying to play the violin like your sister.

Eating soya bean tarts while we wait for your sister to finish music class.

Although you are still ale to articulate very well, you are very vocal.
You love to sing and usually you will be singing your "nonsense" song.
You love to "complain" to Daddy that Mummy had scolded you or vice versa.
You love to follow behind your sister in the hope that you can do the same stuffs as her.
You love to reach for the books on the shelves to read eventhough they are your sister's.

What you say at 23 months

Your repertoire of words are increasing and it is so fun to hear you tell us what you want.

However, your promounciation is far from accurate and it tickles us to hear you talk and sometimes, we will be like playing a charade trying to guess what you are saying.

Such as...

"I wan nuk" - I want milk -> I want to drink milk

"Opin pease" - open please

"Ta que" - thank you

"I wan pay" - I want play -> I want to play

"I wan pit"- I want sweet -> I want to eat sweet

"Ar choo" - Bless you

"rid boo" - read book

"I wan ti ti" - I want sh sh -> I need to go use the bathroom

"I wan bid" - I want bed -> I want to lie down on the bed

"ta ow pease" - take out please

"I wan do" - I want do

"eat brid" - eat bread

"curi pease" - carry please -> Please carry me

22 months going on to 23 months

Daycare has been going on quite well.
Eczema comes and go but Mummy constantly pray for God's healing.
You have started to be able to "talk".
Your best spoken words are...
"Dou Wan!" (don't want"

You can be quite demanding and headstrong. You like to sing and will insist that others sing for you.
Your favourite songs are...
Row, row, row the boat
Apple tree
Itsy Bitsy Spider
The wheels on the bus

When you want us to sing, you will show us the action for each particular song and we will have to start singing. If Daddy does not sing, you will command," Daddy, sing!" and if Mummy doesn't sing, you will also command,"Mummy, sing!"

And if you want a change of song, you will command,"Stop! Chane (Change)!" then you will show us the action for the next song.
You like to take a book but sitting down to read seems to be kind of difficult.
You like to draw too.
Music is still your favourite... singing and dancing.
You will also try to have a go at the piano when Ash is practising.
You are in the process of toilet training but you ended up with quite a bit of soiled panties.
You also learn very fast. You learn through observing the people around you and then you will follow.
Your favourite food will be Japanese Cucumber Maki... but I think it is the seaweed that

you like best.

At 21 months

It has been one month since you started childcare.

You enjoyed school and did not put up a big fuss when you were in school.

However, when I pick you up in the afternoons, you will start to whine for my attention.

The past month also saw an increase in your vocabulary even though you are unable to pronounce them correctly.

At the same time, you are also learning to join two words together to form a short phase.

Such as ...
Mummy roll -> this is to indicate mummy rolling the sushi rolls for dinner.
Mummy hand -> indicating that it mummy's hand
Jie jie pain -> indicating a cut or a bruise on your Jie Jie

You have also learnt to say "mine" at the same time pointing to an item to indicate that it belongs to you.

You love to learn through imitating others. So we can teach you the letters of the alphabet by having you repeat after us one at a time. It is the same as counting from one to ten. Although you may not be able to pronounce them accurately, you will not hesitate to try. Mummy likes your sense of determination to learn new things.

This sense of determination also allows you to learn things fast. You learn by watching and observing carefully what others do and you will try to do it yourself next.

You have learnt to hold a pencil in the correct way because you observe how Mummy and Ash does it when we sit down and colour together.

You have learnt to feed yourself in school shortly within a week there as you watch and observe your older friends doing that. Although you were not very good at feeding yourself at the beginning but after three weeks, you have became more confident and have been doing a good job.

You enjoyed to have your hair tied when you see that Ash gets her tied too. You will wait patiently while Mummy ties Ash's hair so that I can tie yours too. All of us thinks that you look very cute with the teeny weeny pony tails.

You also eat a lot... you can much on your cornflakes and biscuits before the school serves breakfast, then eat the breakfast served by the school, lunch, a bottle of soy milk, breast milk when you reach home, more breast milk in between your nap, even more breast milk after your nap, followed by your dinner, thereafter it is spoonfuls of rice when we eat our dinner and, of course, you will end it with breast milk.

Well, Mummy is not very worried about all the eating and drinking as they are all healthy stuff.

At 19 months...

You have not really established the art of talking yet.
However, you can effectively let us know what you want.
A few "words" you use are:
"um" - I want to eat
"" - everyone is eating
"umb" - you are welcome or thank you
"orsh" - shoes, fish, horse
"booo" - ball or balloon
"jiejie" - sister ... Ashlyn
"korkor" -brother
"cheepcheep" - bird
"eow" - cat

You are a rather active baby.
Once you have your shoes on, you are ready to run even in a very crowded mall and that kinds of worry mummy quite a bit.

There is also the toilet training ... not really successful but there are times when you do pee in the toilet bowl.
When you do, you will laugh hapily as you hear the sound of the pee hitting the water in the toilet bowl.
Cute... very cute and usually I will laugh along with you.

You like to go to the big bookshelves to take out "older" books. You will bring them out and wave it around in the hope that someone will read to you. I hope I can put in a little more effort to read to you...
