A quick update!

For Baby

Sleep By Himself

I consider this quite an achievement, considering how sticky he has been with me! He used to need someone to hug him to sleep, or at least a milk bottle if he is very very tired. But recently without even knowing, I accidentally “trained” him into going to bed by himself. This is what happens when you really don’t have the time to spend 1 hour tucking your toddler to bed.

Typically after his night milk routine which is about 8pm, I’ll give him a toothbrush and we would watch videos on the bed. He always asks for Wheels On The Bus song so every single day we just watch different versions of the song. Initially he would ask for more songs, one after another. And if i said no he would protest and whine. But I have decided 3 songs is maximum so I stuck to that, and told him by the end of the second song that this will be the last, and after this song, mama will get a goodnight kiss, switch off the light, and close the door, then get him to pinky promise. He always eagerly said “okay, promise!”. At first he continued to whine, but after a few times he got it, and miraculously he would just willingly give a goodnight kiss, I’ll switch off the light and close the door, and he goes to sleep just like that. @.@

 

Appetite

This month he has monster appetite.

And his current favorite phrase is “I want peanut butter banana toast!”. Yeap that’s his current food obsession.

He also can open the fridge anytime and withdraw random snacks to eat. Including seaweed, Goji berry, cereal, fruit juice. (He broke the fridge locks. These things never works.)

 

JunJun says

Here are just some of the things he said recently:

(out of the blue) “Mama daiki!!!” (Mama daisuki = I love mama).

“WAAAA!!! SOOOOO CUTE!!!!!!”

*sigh* JunJun sooooo cute.”

“What happened??? What happened????”

“I miss cockroach.” (he just saw a cockroach for the first time the day before.)

“Duh Duh Dog! Khh Khhhh Cat. Thhh Thhh Petrol Station”

“I want go shopping together mama!!!!”

(When he is very very bored) “I want something. Mama, I want something. I want somethingggggg.”

“Don’t let Champon go in. Champon bite Gudetama all.”

“Gudetamadeshita” (Gochisousamadeshita.)

 

In His Dream

Things he said in his dream:

“Don’t want bib!!! Don’t want bib!!!”

“Fire engine… fire engine….”

(wakes up and points at the window towards the sky) “Helicopter!!!!! Dolphin!!!!!!” (obviously no such thing -_-)

 

Breaks Into A Song

ALL. DAY. LONG.

Like, literally. Out of nowhere he’d make circles with his arms and goes “allllll day loooooooong“.

 

Messed Up Grammar

It’s all my fault because I got very confused myself when I talk to him in multiple languages.

So now he goes:

JunJun want taberu kore.” (I want this eat.)

 

For Mama

Giving as much attention as I can now to Junya as he will no longer be the only child sooooooon. My favorite is bath time because… well, you can’t do this naked skin to skin bonding forever. One day your baby will grow up and you are gonna miss this soooooo much. Cherish it to the max.

What else? Mama is also…

… just waiting for contraction to start… endlessly. And getting tired and sleepy after 40 mins of walking. Good night everyone.

    Go Cheesie go! Praying for a safe delivery for you and your daughter!

    Have a safe and quick delivery! And I heard for languages, it’s best if each person is “assigned” to a language to not confuse the child. Like Papa would speak Japanese and Mama would speak English. I was spoken to only in Chinese but after a day in preschool, I chattered in nothing but English. But some kids get mixed up easily – my BF’s brother was only spoken to in Korean and he had a tough time learning english when he went to school and spent years in ESL.

    Hey Cheesie! congrats on your second child. As a linguist, just wanna say don’t worry about his ‘messed up’ grammar. Kids brought up in bilingual families will eventually know how to differentiate between the two languages. And it is perfect normal, if not better than monolingual kids. 🙂
