I also like to climb on to things!

Yesterday for the first time, mummy took me to the wading pool and I had a splashing good time! I really love playing in the pool.

As for food, I am still taking my usual blended vege/fish with cereal, I also take watermelon, grapes, steamed pear and apple, banana, mango, papaya (only very sweet ones).

As for table food, I love chicken rice, salmon cream pasta, mushroom soup, ministrone, fish chowder and a variety of meat.

What is Reese up to??
So much.... He has been very active lately. Always busy running around the house and touching/picking/taking/pointing at things. He doesn't like to walk. He is always running around. He is getting smarter everyday.
He can now say alot of words and also associate it with the thing that he says.
He can now drink from a straw.
He can independantly get down from our bed and come out of the room on his own after his nap.
His hand eye coordination is getting better.
He will take his dirty clothes and put it into the laudry tub.
He will independantly hold his own milk bottle during feeding.
He understands alot more things.
He gets excited when we show him things on the computer.
He likes 'looking' at books.
He is growing taller ( my mother thinks so)... maybe.. because he seems to be able to grab whatever that's on the table top or whatever tops he can get his hands on...
He loves to run wildly at shopping malls.
He has outgrown his current pair of shoes. Barely four months!
He takes shower rather than bath now.
He will 'cry' if his demands are not met. When he wants something... he must have it. When he is playing with something he likes... you cannot take it away from him or take him away from it otherwise he will really cry. He has publicly cried very loudly twice because of it. :)
In all... he is fascinated with everything around him! Pictures coming soon.

Learning to speak

Lately, I will try to imitate what mummy and daddy say. My memory is also very good. I am learning to associate words with pictures or things around me. My vocabulary is growing also. Gong gong and Po po are also teaching me some new words and actions too. It's fun.

Yesterday morning, mummy was soooo happy cause I finally call her 'mum meh' while pointing at her. :)

Words that I can say:

1. Pish (fish)
2. Car
3. Duk (dog)
4. Duck
5. Red
6. Purpel ( Purple)
7. Turtel (Turtle)
8. Bare (Bear)
9. Reein (Rain)
10. Ggggrrain (Green)
11. Ka ka ( Kakak)
12. Mum mum (Food)
13. Pom (Bathing time)
14. nan nan ( Milk)
15. Bu (Blue)
16. Gai ( go out)
17. Papa
18. Ne ma meh ( Nevermind)
19. Mum meh ( Mummy)
20. Kam ( My surname)

I also discovered dancing! You should see me dance. My foot work is quite good. Hopefully mummy will capture it on video soon. :) Mummy has started to teach me more words. She is slowly preparing me to learn phonics and her aim is to get me to read at age 3!! She can't wait to try her hand at home schooling me! Actually she is doing it now.. somewhat... Mummy wants me to learn in the most fun way, without pressure and most importantly I get to enjoy my childhood. She wants me to 'Global' so that in case there is a need, I can easily adapt myself anywhere.

I can somewhat feed myself and drink from a sippy cup!

Ah.... this post was long overdue. After we came back from Penang (Raya Break), the very Tuesday... mummy suddenly decided to try giving me rice crackers and water in a sippy cup. To her surprise.... I took the cracker and put it in my mouth. I am already 1 years old and yet... I am not like the other kids. I don't feed myself and I just don't put food into my mouth! I expect mummy or someone else to do that for me. :0

I am still trying to perfect my feeding skill.... Most of the time I still want someone to put the cracker into my mouth. It's the only food that I will put it into my mouth on my own. Weird huh? As for drinking, I still can't 'suck' out the water from the non drip sippy cup. So... have to take out the valve so that water can flow out on it's own. Most of the time... I will prefer to bite on the nipple and not really drink. When it comes to feeding myself... so far.. I am hopeless... hahaha.... Mummy... I am king mah... *hint hint*

Back from Penang and learned a few new tricks

I had a great time with my Penang grandparents. Spent a lot of quality time with them. They got to show me off to some of their church friends too! :)

I also learned a few new tricks. If you say turn round and round... I will walk in circles. I know what is a rocking chair, poof, daddy & mummy's picture on the wall and I have also discovered walking backwards.

Now I can say 'Kar' very clearly. I can say 'papa' and 'mama' but don't know that it means mummy and daddy... I can say 'toe' also don't know it's meaning. Actually I can say many words...very precise too... too bad I don't know how to associate them yet.

One thing I know and can say well is 'mum mum' and 'nen nen'. :)

Oh..another thing.. when you say Reese Matthew..... I will say Kam. :) That's my name.

Mummy and daddy took me to the beach. I didn't like it. So will try that another time. I also had my first stay in a hotel. The room came with two super single beds and daddy merged the two but I got one whole bed to myself. Hehehe...

So many things to share... All in all... I had a great time and so did mummy and daddy. They get to eat eat eat and watch a movie and window shopping too! Thanks to my Penang grandparents.

Oh, I was stuck in the car for six hours before we got home on monday! I only got to eat my dinner at 9pm. Poor me. Luckily there was a banana and two bottles of milk for me to tahan!

Will show you some pictures soon.

My sleeping haven

About 2 months ago, I invaded dad's place on the comfy mattress he shares with mom and poor daddy has to sleep on a thin foam mattress and last week when Penang gong gong and Ama was here... dad had to make do with my baby cot mattress!

So how do I go to sleep? First of all, I will need at least 5 to 6 pillows surrounding me. I have this habit of rolling around the mattress and having a feel of the soft pillows.... and after a good 15 minutes to half hour of the pleasure of rolling around... I will drift off to zzzland.

Dad and mum have been having backaches and neck pain because of weird sleeping positions as well as the thin foam mattress! Hehe...

So... finally they have decided to get me a proper mattress...not just single but super single mattress. ;)

At least if I refuse to sleep on that mattress, daddy will still have a good sleep on the mattress. They are trying to get me a thick mattress that somewhat matches theirs (12 inches). So that both the mattresses can merge and probably it's easier for them to care for me.

Boy... thick mattresses don't come cheap! they are expensive... now dad and mom are waiting for the Deepavali sales...

My quality time with Penang Gong gong and Ama

I hardly sees my Penang grandparents. The last time I saw them was during my Ah Pek's wedding. I was about 7 + months old. Surprisingly I still remember them and within minutes I warmed up to them. I had fun with them during their short stay with us. They were so sweet. They came all the way from Penang to celebrate my birthday.

Too bad, I felt sick during that few days and they were wonderful. They help took care of me and gong gong constantly carried me and distract me from crying. Ama will feed me and play with me. Oh... on my birthday, Ama got food poisoning and since we were both unwell, Ama slept with me during my naps... hehe.

I will be seeing them again next week during Hari Raya holidays.
