Coloring is one of Aiden’s favorite activities.

P1400008

Thus we decided it was time he got his own little table set.

P1400009

He absolutely loves it.

P1400011

We’re very cautious though, and give him just a few crayons.

P1400014

He likes us to join him for coloring and drawing.

P1400016

There’s only two seats so he will carry his step stool over so that Daddie can sit down too.

P1400020

Roll up the sleeves so they don’t get in the way.

P1400023

He scribbles and scribbles on the paper and coloring book.

P1400024

He’ll tell us to color, but he says color like “cutter” “cutit”

P1400025

What bothers me most is he picks at the crayons with his fingernails.

P1400028

Especially after we take the paper part off, he just can’t help himself!

P1400029

Sometimes he uses so much energy coloring, that he breaks it.

P1400030

One time he tried to switch his kid chairs with the adult chairs.

P1400032

I’m glad he is still keeping up with his down dog pose!

P1400036

He calls the plane “car” because it has wheels.

P1400040

But he knows what a plane is when it is in the air.

P1400045

Look at this picky eater’s face!

P1400050

But he actually thinks it is very tasty.

P1400051

Aiden is now really starting to understand “identity.”

P1400054

He points to himself and says “me.”

P1400058

And sometimes he calls himself “Aiden.”

P1400061

Ummm…..that’s just a sign of “confidence.” :X

P1400063

But he has yet to call himself by his chinese name.

P1400065

Then he will point to each of us to say who is Daddie and who is Mommie.

P1400076

He wants to wear pants without diapers.

P1400079

But of course he still cannot tell which is front and which is back.

P1400080

But I love how he keeps trying and trying.

P1400086

He still tries to steal the chopsticks when he has a chance.

P1400088

He still makes a big mess at the dinner table.

P1400089

But that’s the price to pay to get him to be independent.

P1400091

Our little boy is feeling a little hip hop!

P1400097

He prefers to have hats on backwards.

P1400101

It’s cooler I suppose.

P1400104

He’s so active, it’s so hard to keep things in order.

P1400121

Especially now that he can open the fridge on his own.

P1400122

After over a year of trying, he’s finally succeeded.

P1400123

Now we’ve got more to deal with.

P1400124

He’s been warned that he can only open the fridge with our approval.

P1400127

Because one time he grabbed the glass container full of watermelon – so lucky it didn’t break.

P1400130

I can’t believe how much he liked the cream sauce.

P1400134

He couldn’t scoop it up so he got it to cover his face and head.

P1400137

But he still couldn’t lick the sauce.

P1400140

So happy to keep poking at it.

P1400144

Since his hair was already dirty we let him “fool around” just a little longer.

P1400147

Time for Mommie to help!

P1400150

He’s also been in the mood to be building with legos.

P1400162

We’ll all take turns to build it.

P1400163

I usually just try and help him build a strong base.

P1400172

In the end he knocks it down – the most fun part!

P1400173

We went over to my co-worker’s place, at first he was very shy.

P1400179

He refused to talk until he was offered some food.

P1400181

He had so much fun!

P1400186

My co-worker’s daughter remembered me as Aiden’s sister!

P1400189

He is learning to play with other kids now.

P1400190

And he still loves sitting inside boxes or things he can fit in.

P1400191

And he still likes to ask Mommie to sit inside with him.

P1400192

But now, I’m not just Amy, mama or Mommie…

P1400205

I’m Meme…..Amy and Mommie combined.

P1400206

But Daddie doesn’t have nicknames.

P1400210

Aiden is a pro now in the showers.

P1400212

He doesn’t hit himself like he used to.

P1400214

He can stay under the shower for a longer period of time!

P1400215

When we work on the safari puzzle together, he can understand simple instructions.

P1400218

It still takes him a while, but I keep giving him hints and clues until he gets it.

P1400223

So now he is learning 凹 and 凸 – words to help him with this puzzle.

P1400224

One thing I think is absolutely necessary is teaching common sense and problem solving skills.

P1400227

Just gotta combine FUN without it, so he stays motivated.
