Spread the love


That’s right, 15 + months already!

P1310227

He’s already creating obstacles for himself.

P1310233

He thinks sticking his head through the chair is fun.

P1310237

He thinks he can take over the TV from Daddie….”thinks” is a key phrase.

P1310241

He wants to read multiple books at once, but only like a page or two in each.

P1310247

No matter how many times you tell him a panda is a panda, a lion is a lion…

P1310248

It’s a dog in his eyes.

P1310249

He shakes his head or waves his hands to say “no”.

P1310251

Nor does he want to listen when you say “no”.

P1310256

He bargains with you without using words…that’s impressive!

P1310270

He bargains about playing time, sleeping time, eating certain foods

P1310280

It’s not too bad when he’s ready or eager to bargain with you.

P1310293

But when he throws his tantrum or crying fit, Mommie has no patience.

P1310312

Brats are not allowed in the family!

P1310367

Daddie’s got Aiden so trained up, he can do time outs in public and without creating a scene (after the time out.)

P1310371

With Doctor’s orders, Mommie is bringing out the crayons.

P1310380

After he tried eating crayons at Acura, Mommie didn’t want him anywhere near it.

P1310396

Fresh squeezed OJ!  Delicious!

P1310411

Waterfowls at a park in Cerritos.

P1310420

It has a man made pond and small “waterfall” too!

P1310421

You could even go fishing here, you’re just limited to 5 fish per the sign on the pole.

P1310424

They have ducks, and even geese.

P1310429

Let’s be careful as we walk by the pond, don’t do anything crazy Aiden.

P1310441

We chose to stay off the kids playground because it was in the sand.

P1310444

So today was family strolling/bonding time.

P1310445

You walked most of the way all by yourself!

P1310446

A good half hour’s worth!

P1310453

Did we walk at least a mile?

P1310468

No idea because our speed was toddler speed.

P1310469

But Aiden is ready to meet challenges.

P1310471

Letting go of things he really wants is something he is working on.

P1310475

He will need to learn to be more patient and less stubborn…

P1310478

How will he do that when both his parents are that way?

P1310479

But we support him!  He can do it!

P1310486

New love: sit where there’s a space to sit.

P1310493

His time out space… now he doesn’t cry but he tried to open the door and touch things available around him.  Mommie and Daddie had to warn him many times.

P1310502

He got hurt a few times by accidentally dropping a pan on his feet, and then his fingers got super swollen at the supermarket.  Not a lucky week.

P1310505

He does things in a most unconventional way.

P1310506

I guess it’s never too young to “創一片天.”

P1310510

Mommie brought plum and butternut squash to change things up a little.

P1310515

He’s been eating much of the same food and has become bored of them.

P1310521

Daddie even made 愛心Veggie pork wontons and HK style Borscht soup to boost his appetite.

P1310537

He definitely enjoyed this week’s meal better than the last few weeks.

P1310541

We’re preparing for our trip… Moo Moo cow backpack harness!

P1310566

He didn’t like it, but after a  while he did forget about it.

P1310569

Not many new things this week but he is putting in much effort to learn vocabulary.

P1310578

New vocabulary: 燈燈P1310581

I finally realize what he says when he says what sounds like “menie”

P1310589

He’s saying Minnie… Minnie Mouse…. something he learned from school.

P1310615

He also says chicken…but not very well…

P1310619

Actually sometimes he will try to repeat what Mommie says, like animals and objects.

P1310624

Sometimes he says it accurately and other times he catches only parts of it…or it sounds like something completely different.

P1310626

Other big challenges: diaper changing and brushing his teeth.  Every day we go through pulling teeth to make it happen.  Aiden even tries to brush his own teeth, the only time he’s not screaming during the process.

P1310629

But we continue to teach him “chores.”

P1310639

Mommie and Daddie can’t do it all.
