Something on Jonathan

My 2.5 years old boy is growing up! I am unable to catch up. Do you know what I mean?

He begged me to carry him in the shopping mall yesterday.  Oh dear, he is so much heavier than he was the last time I carried him 9 months ago. He is now 15kg.

His vocab has improved a lot. That makes our conversation more understandable and enjoyable. Now, he is able more willing to follow you read or sing. He can answer your questions and tell you stories from pictures or retell the tv shows he had watched. His favourite tv show is Special Agent OSO.

Since the arrival of Samantha and with her condition that requires more care and attention, I spent less time with Jonathan now. I could only watch him play on his own. Missed putting him to sleep and snuggling beside him. Missed our bathroom fun time. I missed our bonding time so much!

With a new baby in the family, he is learning to behave like a brother.  He is a great lil’ helper and “runner”. He has the brotherly instinct in him naturally. Whenever Samantha cries, he will put aside whatever he is doing and be the first running to her little sister, comforting her. He watched how I take care of Samantha. He reminds me when I forget her handky. He imitates how I express breastmilk. He even use a handky to wipe his chest as how I clean my nipple every time I finished expressing milk. *slap head*

Tell me you like his new hair style. 😛 I love it but many want to chop off his “tail”.

    Love your new blog layout and look 😀

    Sigh, I know what you mean about catching up with the boy when you have the baby. I think I neglected him a lot during the first 3 months while I’m settling down to my new role and also the new baby.

    Jonathan sounds like a good kor-kor! It helps if you give him “surprise” hugs or kisses when you pass by him. My boy loves them esp as I am *so busy* with the baby.
