Reflections for Anya’s Twenty-First Month

Our dearest little sweetheart, you are now 21 months old! Can’t believe that you’ll be 2 years old in just a few months’ time. I was just cuddling you the other day and feeling sad that you’re growing up so quickly and that before I know it, you’ll be a rebellious teenager who wouldn’t want to cuddle with me. Sigh!

You are speaking a lot more now and your vocab is growing. You’re pretty good at greeting all the family members. I still melt whenever you say ‘Mummy’! Your ‘favourite’ relative is Ah Zou apparently because whenever you need someone to blame for anything, you always point the finger at “Ah Zou!” It’s easier to understand what you need so you don’t get that frustrated at not being able to express yourself. Of course, it certainly doesn’t mean that we always give you what you want simply because we know what you want! You already have lots of people who give you things, including the people at the market! Now that the Clementi market has reopened, you make your rounds everyday and get lots of free stuff from the people there.

This month, you are also growing a lot physically! You are significantly taller and can’t fit under the railing in the lift anymore! You have also been putting on quite a bit of weight this month and you’re now a chubby little thing! People keep asking us what we’re feeding you! Of course, I worry that you’re getting too chubby but as long as you’re still in the healthy range, I’ll try not to worry too much!

You did a lot of celebrating this month. There was Asher’s 2nd birthday, Marcus’s 5th birthday, Auntie Qi’s wedding, Auntie Crystal’s wedding, Daniel & Sophia’s baptisms and daddy’s birthday. It’s also a busy month for you and you’ve been out and about lots! You went to watch the SSO Baby Prom, Hi-5, the ToyBox Show, Dora the Explorer and Barney! Just want to remind you that your daddy queued for 2 hours just so that you could get front row seats for Hi-5 and take a photo with them. Your mummy (that’s me) put you on her shoulders so you could get a good view of Dora even though she was injured and in pain!! Your Ah Ma picked a fight with some woman who insisted on blocking you during the Barney show. That really shows how much we love you! You went to the Singapore Philatelic Museum to look at stamps this month and to town to admire the Christmas lights! You also finished another term of Little Gym and I’m glad you’re getting better at it.

I thank God for you every day and I love you more with each passing day! I can’t believe you’re already 21 months old! Thank you for making life so much better for me! Always know that I love you very much and I can’t imagine life without you!
