I was just browsing this blog when I realized that Reese is exactly 5 years 4 months old. I have been a mummy for that long? Wow! I haven't blogged about his milestones for the longest time. So I am going to do so now. :)
Weight: 26+ kg
Height: 112 cm (or was it 116...can't remember but the nurse did say he grew 3 cm in the last 6 months and very tall for his age!)
Food: Eats adult portion and eats almost anything. The only vegetables he takes are broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, cabbage, carrots and some leafy veges. Loves his fruits. Still prefers Western to Chinese food.
Personality: Cheeky, friendly, talkative and generally easy going.
Emotionally: lacks empathy and ability to pick up social cues (issues we are working on).
Favorite activity: Drawing, reading, building things and pretend play
Speech: Advance with huge vocabulary
Creativity: Very creative and has a wonderful imagination
Education: Generally few grades ahead of his age peers. Loves science. Dislike math. Reese is confirmed gifted but has not done any formal testing yet. He will be tested before the end of this year.
Physical: Not exactly on par with his intelligence. Not as flexible. Still afraid to climb up on high bars or swing on monkey bars. Not athletic material. Having said that, he is always moving. Cannot sit still except when he is doing his favorite activities like drawing.
Sensitivity: Still sensitive to loud noises and hates wetness. Even if it's only a tiny drop of water on his clothing and he will make a big fuss and demand to change clothes! (Gifted children tends to have issues such as what Reese is experiencing)
Ambition: He wants to be a teacher. He wants to get married on the second day of adulthood and have children and wants to teach his own children. He wants to build his own apartment block with over 60 floors and his wife to take care of us! Haha...
