16th month old milestones

Dear Alex,

Plenty of stuff happened this month and honestly, I’m glad I keep a record of your growth and behaviour on this blog, otherwise, I’d never be able to remember so many things! I’ve always regretted not having a blog earlier to pen down my thoughts while watching your sister grow actually… so many milestones I should have noted down. Anyway, this was what you were up to this month!:

#1 You can take off loose fitting T-shirts.

Fortunately, you don’t do this often! Otherwise, you’d really never recover from your cold!

#2 You love triceratops and even tried to pronounce its name and you can pick it out from a whole bunch of dinosaurs when I ask for the triceratops.

#3 You are proficient in comprehending instructions, even new ones with just one demonstration of what I want you to do.

#4 You can successfully self-feed for a meal:

#5 You love taking kiddy rides with your sister:

#6 You love copying everything your sister does!
You’d rush to the toilet, climb up the stool and spit after I’m done brushing your teeth even though there’s no need for you to do so! 😛

#7 You love to sit at the corner of the toilet to wait for me:

#8 You are obsessed about your weight:

You’d drag out the weighing machine from under the counter and weigh yourself a few times a day!

#9 You can fix duplo pieces together:

#10 You enjoy your pull-along toys:

#11 You can express the need to change your diaper.

When I brought you to the nursing room at West Mall, you knew exactly what we were there for! You pointed at your chest and said ‘milk milk’. Then when I asked if you wanted to drink milk first or get changed first, you patted your diaper and said, ‘wet wet’. 🙂

#12 You have stopped mouthing small objects, about 98% of the time.

And so, I’ve let you play with shaving foam with your sister during your bath and I’ve started you on some fine motor skills activities, beginning with these three slotting activities.

Another exciting month ahead, my little one! I wonder what you’d do this upcoming month! 🙂
