Let me just do a simple update for Adelle and Ayden.
Adelle chats so much with me lately and she speaks like an adult which I somehow laugh together with her. She laughs too!
She have always tell me what she did in school each time I asked her.
Nevertheless, she will always comes into the kitchen while I’m cooking and ask me this ” Mummy, what I can do now? ”
I can see that she is kinda bored yet she needs me to finish preparing dinner before I could do any activities with them. Lately I try to prepare dinner as early as 330pm,just a few min before both of them wake up from their afternoon nap.
I just love the way she sounds, she seems so much grown up and speaks like how adults do. I’ve somehow enjoyed our daily conversation with her. For once, im not bored at home whereby I can chit chat with her.
As for Ayden, he is growing up to understand better. Each time I’m mopping the floor, he will sit on the sofa automatically when I asked him to. He knows I’m coming with a cloth to clean the floor.
And yes,, finally he is able to sleep through just 1.5weeks ago. And that’s when he is 17mths old!! It’s such a long wait but I’m glad that he can finally do it.
Perhaps because he feel secured when I place him next to Adelle while sleeping at night, he knows he is with her and didn’t make noise when he sees Adelle is just next to him.
Even for afternoon nap. He will always cry when he didn’t see me and that’s when he is sleeping in the playpen, but now, he will lie down and ‘nua’ on the mattress for that 20-30mins while waiting for me to get into the room.
At 17mths plus, each time I tested him on the stuff I’ve taught him before, he knows! He can say out the words although not in a very accurate tone, but I know he is telling me what I’ve asked. And I know my effort has paid off with him knowing quite a bit of things that I’ve taught him.
I can see that both of them understand so many things now. I’m glad.
