Jare turned TWO

My boy has turned TWO! Welcome to the terrible two phrase and as this gets more challenging, I'm too, all ready to receive the hurdles. My little boy who's still barely able to put words into a sentence, has about 120 words in his little dictionary. I counted that with excel. Shall try tracking every month to see if we've been helping him to increase those vocab. He has grown so fast, outgrowing my arms soon. Still, he's really adorable to cuddle, hug and kiss all day long.

Significant Milestones achevied:
1. Feed independently. So much so that I sometimes wish I could feed him instead. He's too messy and slow. But it's a good skill, practice makes perfect. I'm now proud that he can clean up a fried chicken part all on his own. Really cleaned to the core!

Love the seriousness he gave
2. He's finally able to eat cherries the correct way, after 3 attempts of seed swallowing. Glad they were passed out and not growing a tree in him.

Cherries
3. He's able to conquer his A to Z phonics. All thanks to leapfrog, letter factory.

4. Knows some simple colours, shapes and puzzles. 

5. And of all, I like it that he's a good little helper at home. He helps me with the laundry, putting his dirty clothes in the laundry basket, getting clothes into the washer and out of the dryer. He takes instructions very well.

On this big day of his, I baked him his favourite character, an Elmo cake! With that healthy nose - Oranges! I was even tempted to lay Elmo's face with strawberries, but wasn't too confident about how it would looked, I had better stick to icing.

We had an early celebration at home before heading down to Disneyland for his big fun. We thought Disneyland is a nice place to celebrate birthday. With that 'Happy Birthday' tag, strangers and crews would wish you!
