Jay is 18 months young

by - Wednesday, September 05, 2012

Yes, you are a toddler now.

It is amazing how fast time flies. In a blink of an eye, you are already 18 months young. You are no longer the small little baby cradled in Mummy’s arms 18 months ago. Oh my, you are growing way too fast! I hope time can slow down so that I enjoy more of your babyhood cuteness and cheekiness. 
From birth through 18 months: Look at how much you have changed!!
At 18 months, you can run, real fast. You are always full of energy and provide us with lots of opportunity to exercise. You are very brave because you like to climb everywhere without any fear of falling off. You are also able to climb the stairs by holding onto the handrail. 

You have started on potty training. You are able to pee in the potty when we whistle. When you want to poo, you will say um-um and we will quickly bring you to the potty. But sometime you will secretly poo in your diaper. Cheekiness. 

You are now upgraded to sleeping on the mattress. In the middle of the night, you will wake up and ask to sleep with us on our bed. Daddy and Mummy hope you can learn to sleep independently soon. We always can’t sleep well when you are squeezing in with us, especially when you are practicing your kicks and somersaults in your dreams.

You like to point to objects and look at us with eager eyes, waiting for us to name the object to you. You tell us that you want to go gai gai by pulling us to the door and bringing your shoes to us. 

You are getting tired of the porridge that Mummy cooks and prefers to eat what we are eating. Mummy needs to brainstorm on what to cook for you to satisfy your craving for table food. You like to snatch the spoon from me, trying to feed yourself and loves creating a mess out of it. At 18 months, you weigh only 10kg, small size just like Daddy and Mummy. Your teeth are growing very slow, having only 5 teeth now. 

Lastly, not forgetting the times when you throw your tantrums. The most dread nightmare for all parents, rolling on the floor crying. My dear boy, we do not need your help to clean the floor for us. Hope that you will kick this habit soon. 

However, your speech development is kinda slow. This is really worrying us. Although many people mention that boys generally start talking later, we still can’t help but worry. You are babbling but we hope you can start talking in words soon.

Happy 18 months Jay!!
