When Little J was a baby, everyone commented that she looked like Big J, but as she growing up, she resembles me more. Sometimes I feel like she looks like her aunt (Big J’s sister) more. Thank god she doesn’t look much like Big J. However she still inherited her dad’s big and flat nose! Hahaha! So in case when she growing up and want to do any nose beautified surgery, we have stand by some fund for her to do so! *wink*
It feels like yesterday when we brought Little J home from hospital. It was a hard-to-forget memory when I held my bundle of joy in my arm for the first time in the hospital’s bed. It is hard to describe the feeling here as it was mix of happy, joy, relief, satisfaction, achievement and pain. Both grandparents were excited as she is the first grandchild in both families. She has been showered with loves and attentions from both grandparents. That makes her to be a spoiled brat and naughty little girl now!
Little J is a fast learner and loves attention. She started to stand on both leg before she was 1 year old and walk when she was around 14 months old. By 19 months she can walk up and down the stair case all by herself. Scare the shit out of her parents!
Her first word was “mum mum”. I guess every child started with that word. Now she is able to master more vocabulary both in Chinese and English and her longest sentence is 6 words. Now she is able to recognize alphabets, and having fun showing off her knowledge to other. Not only that, she has also starting to master some singing skill. As her mummy only knows how to sing “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and “ABC song”, she only knows those 2 songs. However, sometimes she will just sing to herself when she is bored. Lol!
She has few toys but one of her favorites would be a teddy bear she fondly called “J J bear bear”. I called her bear her best friend. They are inseparable when at home. Just thank god I do not need to bring her bear along when we go out. *wink*
She is now weighing around 12kg and measure at 88 cm tall. She is one choosy eater. It takes you much effort and time to trick her to finish up a bowl of porridge or rice. Her favourite dishes include chicken rice and kolok mee (Sarawak special noodle)! Maybe because of the fragrant, she can eat many spoonfuls of them. Or should I say, she inherited Big J’s food preference? Even when come to snack and drink, she has the same taste like her dad. Her favourite snack is peanuts and she loves to drink iced tea.
Little J is able to feed herself now, although she always end up messing her food. More food around the table and floor than go into her mouth! Lol! She still wet her shirts (meaning drooling on her shirts)! How to stop her from drooling and wetting her clothes? She has more or less a complete set of baby teeth I manage to count her teeth to be 18 teeth. She doesn’t want to open up for her mummy to check and count her teeth!
She may be naughty and always have something up her sleeves, but she is still her mummy and daddy’s darling girl. This year birthday is special to her as she is celebrating together with her younger cousin, Chloe. Both born on same date but 1 year apart. So one is a puppy and another little piggy! Big J born in the Year of Dog and Chloe in the Year of Pig! I guess dog and pig go along pretty well, right? *laugh* They met on several occasions and they do have their tugging, scratching, touching and pushing sessions, but children been children right? There are signs of jealousy too, such as “my territory” and “my toys” shown, but those behaviors are normal in young children.
How we celebrating Little J’s birthday? Nothing grand this year unlike last year where we have 60 people attending Little J’s birthday party in a Chinese Restaurant. We are going to celebrate Chloe’s birthday in her apartment tonight with outside food catering. As for Little J, I have ordered an Oreo Cheese cake to be enjoyed and celebrated tomorrow evening. Maybe a nice dinner treat with her uncle and aunty too.
Happy 2nd Birthday, Little J. And little Chloe, Happy 1st Birthday to you too!
