This is what Big Boys do

Open up and say “Aaaahhhhh”

Yesterday evening Pete and I had a cup of yogurt each, and as we were enjoying it, Ethan ran over to his Daddy, reached out his hand, held the spoon Pete was using, scooped a spoonful of yogurt and fed himself with it. He then walked away with a smug smile that reeked of, “So there! Told you I could do it!”

Hold the Handle

After yogurt, I gave him a mug of water. At home, Ethan will drink from his own adult-like yellow mug. I bought this plastic mug for him recently to prevent breakage in case he drops it. Normally he will just hold the mug on its sides with both hands and drink from it, but yesterday, he voluntarily reached out for the mug handle, held on to it, and with the other hand supporting the other side of the mug, drank from it! By the way, there is a growing probability that Ethan is a southpaw because he prefers to hold his spoon and mug handle with his left hand.

Leg Lifting

When I help Ethan put his pants on I will lift his leg one at a time, but just 2 days ago, when I was wearing his trousers for him, he leaned his body against me for support and lifted one leg and put it into the trouser leg hole, then did the same for the other. I thought it was just a fluke, but he did it again and again at different occasions. Even when he has his shower, he will put one hand on the shower stall wall, lift up one leg and put it under the running stream of water, and then the other leg. Very good balancing skills, I must say!

Mommy’s scrapping skills are being exercised daily, I see! *grin*

*clap clap clap* Doing it like the big boys do, eh? So grown-up!

Southpaw? Nice! *shakes hand with Ethan Boy* They do say lefties are intellectual, you know… *perasaan sikit-sikit* Hehehe.

Joyce says: Rinnah cheh-cheh is southpaw too! wow…now you and Ethan will have something in common when you meet!

He can use spoon on his own without spillage already? Brae can’t eat yogurt on his own yet…a very messy affair.

Joyce says: Nope, still spilling here and there, but he just LOVES to use the spoon. I guess messiness is something we need to deal with on the way to success.

Bravo to Ethan….another great milestones.

Joyce says: And looking forward to more to come!

hahaha yr yogurt kena hijackked!

Joyce says: Ya loh…used to it liao.
