Big Boy Already

Today, Juan Or surprised Mommy with his requests and actions. All Mommy can conclude is that Juan Or is becoming a big boy already - no longer the babyish traits that Mommy is so used to. Here are the three situations that happened all within one night:

Situation 1:

Juan Or requested to eat Coco Balls cereal, so Mommy gave him some by pouring into his cup. He finished all and then asked for some more, so Mommy poured some more. This time, he merely stuffed the cereal into his mouth but without biting. Later he sort of left his mouth open so that the already-damp cereal flowed out of his mouth and onto his T-shirt! So his T-shirt now had chocolate stains. Mommy merely wiped the stain dry but of course the stain still remained there. Mommy had no intention of changing his T-shirt because it was only a small stain - no big deal. However, along the way, Juan Or, off and on, kept looking at the stained area and pointing his fingers at it while looking at Mommy. At first, Mommy paid no heed, but after it went on several times, finally Mommy asked him whether he wanted his T-shirt changed to which he nodded. Hahahaha.....so conclusion is Juan Or already has some sense of what is clean and what is dirty and is not comfortable about feeling dirty (although he is still quite dirty and messy in other aspects)!





Situation 2:

Following Situation 1 just now, so Mommy changed Juan Or's T-shirt. Mommy digged out a clean sleeved T-shirt to put on him (he has not been wearing it for a long time), but he refused. So Mommy thought perhaps he didn't favour wearing sleeved T-shirt, instead preferred the singlet type, to which Mommy took out one plain white singlet. Upon seeing the plain white one, again Juan Or refused, instead he pointed at another singlet T-shirt which had cartoon bear design on it! This time, he gladly wore it without making any fuss. So conclusion is Juan Or already has preference for nicer-looking items!

This is the cartoon bear singlet T-shirt that Juan Or likes as opposed to.....




.......this plain white one!




Situation 3:



Shortly after changing his T-shirt, Juan Or went to the book shelf to take a book to 'read'. And he settled himself down on the floor to do his 'reading'. However, very soon after that, his Great-grandmother got up from her sitting position to walk to the bathroom and that Juan Or happened to be sitting somewhere in her pathway. So Grandpa asked Juan Or to get up and make way for Great-grandmother, to which Juan Or complied. The cute part was that Juan Or, with the book in his hand, stood up to make way and after waiting patiently for Great-grandmother to pass, he sat back at the same position where he left to continue his 'reading'. So conclusion is Juan Or is starting to show some maturity of thought already. Actually, Mommy expected that he would fret and refuse to budge once he had settled himself to do something, but Juan Or has proven Mommy wrong!






Ha, big boy already, right? Well, however, when Mommy asked Juan Or whether he is still 'baby-baby', Juan Or nodded. ^ ^

Situation 1. Hehe... like Juan Juan, always request to change her clothes once its dirty! The 'Cleanaholic Cousies'!

Situation 2. I think Juan Or quite fancy with 'bears', he used to point at my "orange-T"(The one with bears ridding on a train)and chuckled. If not mistaken, he was able to pronounce 'bear' beside 'apple' when he was still very young.

Situation 3. Applause!! Should "top up" his Ang Pao money already since he has grown up so much! ;)
