21 months – drinking milk never been so fun

Daddie was looking at Aiden’s pics from Mommie’s phone.

P1370942

Aiden wanted to join in on the phone.

P1370949

He loves looking at his old pics….and copying his young self.

P1370954

As if to say, I can still do it and look just as cute!

P1370957

This week Aiden is not as opposed to brushing his teeth.

P1370961

But improvement in one area…….problems in another.

P1370978

He just doesn’t want to listen.

P1380011

He wants to be a big boy.

P1380033

So I tried to find ways where he can feel like a big boy.

P1380036

Help with cooking rice was what I felt was safe enough for Aiden to do.

P1380039

Although he doesn’t like the small motions, and then he dropped probably a good 10-15 pieces of rice.

P1380043

So then I take it away from him and assure him we’re not done.

P1380046

I do the last few touches and call him over to help some more.

P1380047

I open the lid to the rice cooker, and then we both hold the pot with rice and put it in the cooker.

P1380051

Aiden aggressively closes the lid and pushes the button to cook the rice.

P1380055

Something that takes less than 5 minutes took a lot more time.

P1380056

But it was worth it.

P1380057

I told him if there was anything else he could help with that I would call him over.

P1380059

Then he was willing to go play and let me do my thing in the kitchen.

P1380061

My little boy just loves to help….most of the time.

P1380070

He even helps out at school.

P1380079

Daddie saw him grab the bottle from a teacher in the school’s kitchen and take it to another teacher who was holding a baby.

P1380081

Apparently, sometimes he will even help hold the bottle for the babies.

P1380088

Aiden is learning quickly at school.

P1380089

He can count a little bit in English now.

P1380091

It’s funny as I have been teaching him to count in Cantonese for the longest time but he can count more numbers in English.

P1380093

He will even copy words I say back to him a lot better than in the past.

P1380097

When I counted to him in mandarin, I would say one then he would repeat…and so on.

P1380107

Will he remember though, who knows!

P1380109

But it doesn’t hurt, since his brain is like a sponge right now.

P1380111

I never thought that someone Aiden’s age could have chores already.

P1380116

But he does!  After dinner he pushes in the chairs.

P1380119

He likes to help put things in the sink too when we are too slow in doing it.

P1380129

He does other things too, like bring me stuff because I forgot to put it away or throw it away.

P1380137

He knows that everything has its place.

P1380142

No wonder they say kids are smarter these days than when we were kids.

P1380156

It’s because they are taught at such an early age.

P1380166

Hopefully the logics and stuff that we have he will absorb as well.

P1380170

I’ve also been involving him with the laundry, like helping me put the clothes in the washer and taking the dried clothes out of the dryer.

P1380182

So far he enjoys it very much being a helper.

P1380183

But he doesn’t realize when he’s not ready for something.

P1380188

At least he doesn’t want to.  He’s so stubborn, especially when he’s already decided how something should be.
