This month was a very busy one for us! I’m going to have to do this in point form, I think!
We went to the Zoo 3 times this month!
Your first ACJC Fun-O-Rama. Lots of food for you!
We went on many nature walks. This is at Hindhede quarry.
First time at Universal Studios for all of us. Nothing much for you there though!
Being sacrificed to random Egyptian god
First time at the Night Safari for us! You went “kkkeerrr” at the animals and tried to eat leaves
You got to hang out with your Aussie relatives: Granduncle Ernie, Grandaunt Diane, Auntie Pam & Uncle Nick! You also met Mrs Meow (one of my favourite teachers of all time) and strange uncle Gerald at Fun-O-Rama.
Attended auntie Fariha’s (daddy’s secretary) engagement party
We celebrated Dan’s 满月, and auntie Xin & Ju’s birthdays. Dan & Sophia are your new friends!
Your great grandparents’ 70th wedding anniversary
It’s hard to keep up with all your new tricks. You go “yay!” with your arms up in the air and know how to do the actions for 洗手 and 洗头. I love how you do a full-body nod instead of just nodding your head when you’re saying yes to something. You are slowly mastering the actions for ‘head, shoulders, knees and toes’ although you tend to go straight to your toes in anticipation! You have been climbing up, down and all around furniture but still not walking yet.
You are a very impatient child and hate to sort shapes. We tried to guide you in the sorting and to cheer you on with “yays!” but when you were supposed to do it on your own, you sneakily flung the piece aside and went “yay!” for yourself anyway!! Sometimes you stuff the pieces in via the opening in the bottom instead.
The most perplexing thing you are doing this month is to smack yourself on demand!! When you do something naughty, we’ll say “beat ah!?” and you’ll smack yourself on the arm and then soothe yourself. It saves us the trouble of smacking you but it’s really quite a strange thing for you to do!!

Going peek-a-boo with mummy’s hat
Your feet are finally big enough to wear some of your pretty little shoes. You are very irritable and bitey because you have teeth coming out like mushrooms after the rain! You currently have 2 fully grown teeth on top, 2 at the bottom and another just appearing on top. I think you are using all your energy to make teeth because you want to eat MORE! You have a healthy appetite and generally eat whatever we eat. We try to avoid giving you processed, salty, fried or oily food though.
Mmm.. KFC! (And daddy’s hand ready to pull the tray away)
Eating a hot cross bun
You’re growing up so quickly and I cherish every single moment I have with you. I can’t say this enough: You are loved!
