Development: TT @ 18 Months

Mastered Skills

  • Will “read” board books on his own
    Yes! I’m quite happy that the littlest recently has taken into reading and is flipping through books. But I think I still didn’t read enough to him. I need to buck up.
  • Can pedal when put on trike
    Not really. Not sure is it because our trike is still a little big for him. So he couldn’t reach the pedal yet.
  • Scribbles Well
    He can definitely doodle. But what is consider scribbles well?

Emerging Skills

  • Strings words together in phrases
    Not really. This boy speech development has never been fast.
  • Brushes teeth with help
    Well, the helper has been trying to brush his teeth. But most time, he is just chewing on the toothbrush.
  • Builds a tower of four cubes
    Yup, I think he is able to stack up to 4. And he has been using can drinks for his stacking stunt. *faints

Advanced Skills

  • Throws ball overhead
  • Takes toys apart and puts them back together
    Nah. This boy is still the destroyer. He can pack all his toys into a box and proceed to empty it the next moment.
  • Shows signs of toilet training readiness
    Not really. But he has some sense. Sometimes he will pee when we take off his diaper. And every time he does that, he will look at himself down “there”. I think training him for potty wouldn’t be too difficult. It’s just whether I have the energy. LOL.
According to Daddy and Auntie, this is one of your favourite TV programs in the morning. This is how much Mummy is missing in your growing up. :'(

Dear TT,

This few days, you have been ignoring Mummy. When I come home, you no longer call out to me. When I want to carry you, you walk away. It breaks my heart. But I don’t blame you really. It’s all Mummy’s fault. Mummy caught GorGor’s stomach flu last week. And was in bed for about 4 days. I couldn’t play with you or carry you. After Mummy recovered from the stomach flu, her lower back pain recurred and she couldn’t carry you again.

Mummy is very upset with herself. She didn’t take care of herself and as a result she couldn’t take care of you. That day your GorGor make an innocent remark that you think Auntie is your Mummy. It’s an innocent remark but it hurts Mummy badly. But GorGor is not wrong. Mummy need to do more.

Mummy promise she is going to take care of her own health and body. So she can care for you, GorGor and JieJie. Please give Mummy sometime as she work on this Ok?

And a bad news for you. Auntie is confirm leaving early next month. I think you will suffer from missing her for a while. But Mummy will be with you during this difficult period. It is also a good time for Mummy spend more time in caring for you. Hopefully, we can brave through this and adapt as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, stay healthy and happy.
