It’s been quite some time since the last entry.. Jocelle has turned 1 10 days ago.. She’s growing up real fast..
She is more mobile since she started walking on her own although she’s still not very steady.. However, it’s enough to keep us bz.. Hee.. She’s still very attached to me but now that she can walk on her own, she’s more independent and can be left alone to play for a while.. Of cos, she can play for a longer period of time if her bro is with her.. But they also fight over the toys easily.. Hmm.. Jocelle seems to be interested in whatever Jovan is playing with.. Jovan used to share his things more readily but now he seems to feel threatened by his sister.. On our part, we try to encourage him to share.. Hopefully they will learn to share their things more readily…
Jovan, who turned 22 months a few days ago, is getting very chatty… he loves to sing too! He sometimes talks to himself while he’s playing too! 🙂
He’s starting to show interest in books and will badger us to read to him.. Sometimes he’d want to read himself.. Of cos, he can’t read on his own yet.. But he’ll make up his own story based on the pictures in the book.. It’s quite interesting actually.. Hee.. We just bought and assembled a bookshelf yesterday to encourage him to read.. We even bought a Thomas play mat to make the reading corner more attractive.. Hee.. We’ll try to bring him to the library this week.. 🙂
He just started lessons at Berries last week.. Hopefully, he’ll learn to like Chinese too…
Back to Jocelle.. She can call mama, papa and ah ma.. She seems to like singing like her bro.. Whenever Jovan starts singing, she’ll start humming and clapping her hands!! 🙂 I’m trying to wean her off already as she’s still not sleeping through the night and I’m getting tired of waking up in the middle of the night.. I’m sure she wakes up not because she’s hungry cos she eats a lot when she’s awake.. Also, she’d rather go back to sleep than to drink from the bottle..
I tried to stop her from suckling to sleep 2 nights ago.. She would cry and fuss but I would ignore her cries as I’ve resolved to let her go to sleep on her own.. Eventually, she relented and just went to sleep.. Last night when she woke up and cried in the middle of the night, I just let her be.. I didn’t give in to her cries and she eventually went back to sleep.. I hope she’ll start sleeping through soon so I can sleep uninterrupted through the night.. Yawnzzz… Jocelle, be good, ok?
