Aden boy: 23 months old

Aden will turns 2 next month, how time flies!! I really miss the newborn him *emo mode on* Anyway, I shall do a quick update on his progress before he turns 2!

1. Aden likes to mimic whatever we do, and by now can understand more instructions like 'cover your ears' (he likes to do this now). We also got him to clean up his toys every time after playing, though sometimes he do it halfway only but I won't give up in involving him to do chores ;)
转眼间Aden就快要两岁咯!虽然很开心看着他一天比一天大,不过心里却很希望他永远是新生儿,乖乖的,呵呵~(当妈妈就是那么矛盾吼?)
最近的他已开始学会了很多新东西,很会模仿我们,很爱跳舞,也开始能够讲更多话了~




2. Likes to play dress up, like wearing our clothes and glasses. He gets very action when he put on the glasses, and whenever we took a photo of him, he'll want to see the photo after that...
His vocabs widen quite a lot lately, by now he can recognise all of us and will greet us. He also has good memory of certain things, like the fruit shop we used to go, where the toy machines are in Tesco, where I keep his snacks, even can recognise FIL's shop when we pass by.
最近拍照会听话摆pose了,拍完后一定要给他看。记忆也很好,什么有的没的他也记得,就像是Tesco的摇摇车在哪里,妈咪收的零食在哪里,家里每一个人的车他也知道,等等。



3. His latest hobby now is to play with the car steering wheel =_=' He won't miss it every morning, he even give up eating yogurt or snacks and lead me to the key box to take the car keys. Mummy is heartache seeing this little boy spin the new car's steering wheel like that, very rough some more :( But I always make a deal with him before allowing him to play with the wheels, which is to only play for a while, and when I ask him to get down, he has to get down no matter what. Well, sometimes he listens but sometimes he don't.
说到车嘛,男孩就是男孩,就是车不离手~ 最近爱上了妈咪的新车,每天早上一定会吵着我开车给他玩方向盘!妈咪看了很心疼,毕竟是新车嘛,加上这家伙很粗鲁的!不过在给他玩之前我都跟他说好好,只是可以玩一下下,当我说下车时他一定要下来不可以扭计。有时他会服从,有时却不会~




4. Does your child has a dovey? I think most kids do! Aden is no exception, he must hug his stinky pillow every time he sleeps, and even when he's not sleeping~ We call this pillow his 'bao bei' (means darling in Mandarin), he can say bao bei very precisely as well.
我想每个小孩都会有自己的‘臭臭’吧?Aden也不例外。这个枕头陪了他很多个月了,真的是有他的味道!尿味口水味奶味统统有,哈哈!当然有洗过啦!xD
我们都说这是他的宝贝,而他自己说宝贝也说得很标准!



5. This fella likes milk very much, and I realise his appetite for milk grows tremendously lately. He can take 5oz milk and ask for it again after 2 hours =_= He will keep on saying nen nen nen nen and if I don't give, he'll starts to throw tantrums. I always say to him, 'lucky your daddy got money, or else, you got no milk to drink'. (Averagely, a tin of 900g milk powder lasts about 12 days, only)
He's still taking Bellamy's organic milk, I wonder is it because of the organic ingredients which makes him hungry quick?
Anyway, though he eats a lot, he poops a lot as well. Minimum twice daily.
Aden的喝奶量惊人!虽然平时吃很多了不过现在一天平均来说还是喝大概4-5次奶粉。有时才喝完5oz奶粉,不到两个钟又跟我讨了!不给他他就会发脾气~我都说还好他老爸有能力要不然真的得买超市那种‘红字牛奶’来喝了,哈哈!xD
现在喝的是Bellamy有机奶粉,一罐900g最多可以耐12天罢了。。Hmm 是不是有机的关系所以比较快饿?
当然除了奶粉,Aden也很爱吃别的东西。饭,面,水果,零食,甜食统统ngam!

不过Aden虽然吃得多,他的消化次数也很多,一天最少大便2次。



6. Of course, besides milk, he's a glutton for food as well, basically any types of food la! We give him rice with soup, fruits, crackers, dessert occasionally like ice cream, junk food, soft drinks... (Ok I am getting more and more guilty as I type this :P).
Anyway, I am glad that he's not so choosy when it comes to food. 



7. See his big belly? That's the consequences of being a glutton! Honestly, I am not sure how much he weighs now, the last weighing (which is about 2-3 months ago) was about 12kg. But one thing for sure, he's really heavy. Can't afford to carry him for more than 5 minutes, even daddy also surrender, haha!
But this boy has strong arms, can see his muscles at the arm, he can lift the bucket with water and pour them during bath time. Current height is about 84cm.
看看他的大肚腩!真是肥仔龙一个!2-3个月前的体重是大概12kg,现在肯定不止了!不过就没什么高到!哎哟哟~*泪飆-ing*
不过大家都说Aden有小小的muscle,他可以把装有半通水的水桶翻起来倒掉里面的水~ (最喜欢在洗澡时这样玩)



8. Aden has a major phobia of hair cut, I mean a real big phobia! He will start to pout then followed by loud scream and cry upon entering the salon. I have tried switch to other barber but to no avail. He seems to know something is not right when he sees the barber. I have no choice but to let his hair grow to this length now which sometimes people will mistaken him as a girl :(
Anyway, I did trim his hair myself, but can only do that when he sleeps, but because I am not a professional barber (xD), I'll just trim a little bit, haha!

Same thing goes to visiting the pediatrician, Aden will starts to cry when he enters the hospital/clinic. I have to sweet talk to him in order for him to calm down a bit, but most of the times I just let him cry and drag him into the room =_= 

Well, life as a mother...............

Aden虽然很调皮不过也是胆小鬼一个!带他剪个头发简直是要了他的命!一进去理发店就会开始狂哭硬拉我走。就连理发师都说‘你还是带他回去改天才来吧!’ 所以我也没办法,让他留长发了,哈哈!就因为这样很多外人会问我他是girl or boy? =_=""
有时还是会自己帮他修剪一点啦,不过得等他睡了才可以‘动刀’,要不然肯本剪不到!

看医生也是一样,一进到诊所就感觉不对劲然后大哭!=_=


In addition to that, Aden has a very bad habits of throwing things, basically everything, sometimes he'll even throw things from upstairs to downstairs and to date, he had spoil many things including his toys (blame his fast hands!)
I have taught him many many times to not do this, I even showed him the proper way which is to give instead of throw. We even resorted to caning when he really misbehave. But all are no use cause he doesn't seems to understand!! When I scolded and asked him whether he still want to throw or not, he will shake his head but after a while, he'll repeat the same old acts. Worst, when we dine outside, he'll sometimes throw the spoon/bowl to the floor. Arghhh, really drive me nuts!!! Can you imagine I have to scream at him almost everyday like a mad lady! 

Any mummies have any advices to me regarding this? Appreciate that!

除了这些难搞之外,我最头痛的就是Aden很喜欢乱丢东西!虽然已经教了很多次,甚至示范给他看不能丢,要好好给,他都当作没一件事!很多时候生气火大了甚至拿藤条出来,目前为止他还会怕啦,当我问他‘还要不要丢?’,他会摇摇头,不过不到一分钟又来了!最怕的是出外吃东西时他乱丢碗碟弄到地方肮脏。。唉,我真是投降啊!每天都好像疯婆一样的骂他~ 试过了问其他的妈妈们,大家都说这是他们学习的一个过程,叫我好好教慢慢来,给多点耐心,最惨的是我没有耐心啊!他已经丢坏甚至丢破很多东西了!我的宝贝到底什么时候才会学乖乖啊??:'(

  2. Aden is so cute. I like the pic with him wearing glasses.

    Sorry I also need some advice on the cutlery playing thing. My 5 years old still love to play with his cutlery when ever we go out and I also at loose end on how to handle him. Sometimes I prefer to stay at home than eat outside. Hard to teach kids table manners. Most of the times, I just throw iPad to him so he will behave better but I know that is not the right solution.

  3. 哇!你的aden23个月了。好快! 盖耳朵这招我家也会,骂他时候就盖住耳朵当听不到><
    乱丢东西真的很难教。我家的也是,衣服搬出来,带他去墙角面壁思过还咋那边笑。有时候真的很无力><
    不过看到aden的奶量我有点错愕,好会喝奶! 小胖喝植物奶,一天2次,最多三次而已。一个月喝1.5罐这样。
    我觉得现在是terrible 2阶段。我儿子每天跟我nonono到我要疯了。吃饭就nonono然后推开饭,结果饭弄到,一次生气,我把他绑在high chair (ikea high chair可以绑的),然后给他面壁思过1.5小时,谁都不可以去跟他玩,跟他讲话。每个人去客厅。 after that 他才比较不敢把食物吐出来。

  7. Hayley no matter what don't give up... be patience. You're going to be a good mom... Aden's mischievous is just a stage to go through. He will be fine soon when he meets more friends in Nursery... Should send him earlier since you're full time mummy at home. Why I say that because, you're always at home with him... therefore he likes to cling with you all the time...

    That day I saw him at your mom place I really feel like hug him... but I'm after work... dirty in that sense so don't want hug him...next time lar..

    1. Of course I won't give up, just feeling very exhausted at the moment.
      Yep, I can't wait to send to nursery next year, haha!

      Haha, it's ok, you can hug him anytime la! But I just worry he won't want to hug you, he's quite reluctant to strangers, even sometimes also don't want my brother. But then I always tell him your name since you bought him many toys, hehe!

  16. So is there any birthday party coming up? We did a party for Kz when he was 1.. But none at 2, coz I just gave birth to G. This year, this month in fact, we are doing a small simple party for Kz at my mum's place, together with G's birthday, so it's a 2-in-1 celebration, coz both Kz & G are born in April :)

    1. Nope, no big party this round, tiring and I guess Aden is too young to appreciate that, so probably just a meal outside with my family and the in laws.

  17. 孩子就是淘气,看到Aden的淘气样,我家泰山也是那样。 她现在也是12公斤,吃的很多,不过开始不要喝奶,不过只要她健康就好。
    Terrible two,我想我家那个也是那样,脾气又火爆,象我,哈哈哈!
    不过每次淘气过后,看到他们的无辜大眼,还是被打败了!

  20. I like his photos! Your cute baby is growing up so fast into a small boy now. Someday when he has a girlfriend, mummy will be jealous liao! Wakakakaka

    So he likes to imitate and dress up! I was like that too as a kid and that was how I ended up doing commercials many years ago cos I have a very daring character. Probably Aden's creative flair will land him bigger roles.

    1. Haha, girlfriend? Still many years to go la!

      Haha, really? Wow, cannot believe you did commercial last time~

      Delete
  21. hahaha, since he now likes to mimic things you do, then you better be very careful with what you are doing woh.. bad habits should be hidden from him, else he will thought those are good things to learn, haha!!

    hmmm, he likes dressing up now?? surely this one is 深得媽媽的遺傳 lah, haha!! aiyoh, whose glasses are those?? so cute lah, Aden really looks like cartoon characters wearing that huge glasses :D

    1. wah, so every morning also he must get into the car and then play with the steering wheel?? hmmm, he doesn't want that boot-boot-car that his grandpa bought for him anymore?? haha, really 喜新厭舊 ah this boy.. :D

      hehehehe, guilty as charged lah.. even Uncle SK also got Fing-fing, so surely Aden cannot 執輸 and must have his very own 枕枕 mah.. so his 寶貝 will follow him 24x7?? but the problem is, does he allow you to wash his 寶貝?? some kids ah, they will not let go one, and if you wash it clean, they cannot smell the stinky smell they use to, they will cry lor, haha!! like that memang susah hor?? :p

      Delete
    2. hmmm, okay lah, milk is something good, so if Aden likes it then you should allow him to drink more lah.. i see some kids they don't like milk, and some also allergic to milk and have to drink soy milk instead.. have to keep him that habit of drinking milk, so that he can grow more healthily.. last time i don't like to drink milk, that's why ah didn't get enough nutrients and that's why now so short, hahaha!!

      aiyah, never mind lah.. i actually think we should not too overly control the kids diet also lah.. must have some junk food mah, or else they will be too clean and actually more prone to sickness.. like last time we all believe 大菌食細菌 mah, so just let the boy grows up normally and naturally lor.. too protective also not good one, so please don't be guilty lah, as long as you observe the moderation then it is perfectly fine :)

      Delete
    3. i think Aden is normal woh, where got big tummy?? Uncle SK's tummy is even bigger lah, hahahaha!! i think he is an average boy lah, i have seen kids with even bigger tummy and even few more times fatter than Aden leh.. and kids mah, most of them are like that lah, chubby chubby and that's what we call baby fat mah.. when he grows up later, surely will be fit and healthy lah.. :)

      hair cut?? hmmm, looks like a common problem horr?? errr, maybe need to distract his attention when he is having his hair cut lor.. bring along his favorite toys ah, and maybe give him an iPad to make him quiet.. but then all these also 治標不治本 lah.. hopefully as he grows older he will get over that lah.. i think quite naturally also lah, so no worries, be happy!! only worry you feel a bit "pai seh" in the saloon when everyone is looking at you only :p

      Delete
    4. have to be patient with kids lah.. sometimes 軟硬兼施 but most of the time must remember 切勿操之過急 lor.. stay calm and be happy lah.. cannot comment or advise much because i have no experience, haha.. i only have niece and nephews to play with but not my own kid :D

      Delete
    5. Yes, bad habits are easy to learn, so must be very careful!
      Haha, the glasses is actually just frame, no lens, it's my SIL's sunglasses, LOL!

      He prefers big and real steering wheel leh! The one in his toy car one is too small and cannot spin 360'.
      Yes, his 宝贝 is very precious, when he don't see it he'll ask for it.

      I know but then he seems to drink too much milk, til he become fat fat now, haha!

      Hmm, may be in the picture cannot see but his tummy is really very big and bloated one! You will know what I mean if we get to meet up some day.
      Well, last time iPad works but now no more! He will ignore everything when he's in the salon and keep on dragging me to leave the salon~

      What to do, just have to train to be more patient lo!

      Delete
  22. OMG ! Your son's character is so similar with my son when he was younger. He was super active and drives me up the wall every day and night !

    Just a phrase and Aden will soon grow up to be a loving young boy. Hang on there mummy.
