- With extensive training, he can be mom's little helper (insyaAllah) :
Scene 1: "Irfan, go take the remote for mama" I said, while pointing to the TV remote. He looked to his left and right and left again but still couldn't spot the thing. Then he shot me an inquiring look . It was right behind him. I pointed again and again until he spotted it. He then took it and bring it to me, and clapped his hand joyfully for the accomplishment.
- Loves to play with older kids, and will grab babies younger than him. I guess he really wants to make friends, only he doesn't know how to yet.
- Scene 2: "Irfan, show me your nose" and he'll wiggle his nose like a rabbit. "Show me you eyes" and you can see him blinking his eyes rapidly.
- Will salam and kiss our hands when asked, provided he's not in one of his foul mood.
- Still loves dancing and grooving to the music.
- Suka main police and thief (Irfan's version) with his mama :
-I still love seeing him cry, so everyday Irfan will still get scolded (olok-olok) by his mama. And he'll cry like this :
- Still putting things in his mouth, I wonder at what age do they outgrow this?
- Loves eating adult food more than his own food now, and refuse to take food with bland taste. So most of the time I hafta add cheese to all his food, even the porridge. What's the appropriate age for us to start adding a pinch of salt to their food?
- He now don't enjoy bath time as much as he used to. Due to laziness on my part, I don't put him in the tub anymore, instead I just put him under the shower. He'll of course cry like nobody's business everytime he's bathed, and will get his mama (or maktok when she bathe him) wet as well. Perhaps, we should revert back to the tub, it's more fun that way?
- Eventhough he enjoys walking and running around now, he still gets clingy at times. Will hug our legs and won't let us go anywhere until we pick him up.
- He has this problem, eversince he was a little baby. Sometimes when he cries, he'll slop?(I don't know the correct spelling or even common word for this). You know the situation when they cry until the voice won't come out, and they kind of stopped breathing (or so it seems). The other day while both hubby and I were sorting out our clothes in one of the big basket, the lil munchkin tripped on the baju and fell down, his back hit the basket. It must have been painful and he cried and slopped until his lips turned blue! And he was flailing and thrashing his feet at the moment, with no sound coming out of him all the while, like he was struggling to breathe you know. That got us panic, and I cried for his father to do something about it! He shook Irfan hard and blow his face a couple of times before the boy took his breath again. I, on the other hand, took a long while before I could stand up on my feet again after that incident.
It's just too scary. I asked the nurse at the gov clinic on what to do if that happens, but she said nothing could be done. The kid control the breathing himself, so it's really up to them. And she said I had nothing to worry about. Hah! What a lame answer. I must remember to get other professional advice regarding this.Oh ya! Besides English and Malay, this boy can already understand basic Tamil too. Perhaps his grandma had been teaching him that languange extensively when we sent him there sometimes. Haish, remember, no speaking Tamil with mama ya because I WON'T UNDERSTAND A WORD U SAY. :-p
*Above pic* In an attempt to make the dream comes true, we bought him this capal (sandal) from the Sg. Ara nightmarket. Super duper cuteness! And the best part is, it's R.E.D!
Sapa kata kasut buatan Sg. Ara tak bagus? *grin*
