we moved X to his room for bedtime a couple of days ago, and he's not too happy about it.

This was how he tried to get his dad's attention last night whilst i was trying to put him to bed:

(standing at the child gate)



(fails to get any attention)

X: Nee! Nee! Nee... Nee...

(fails to get any attention)

X: (knocking on the metal child gate) Nyock Nyock!

(Still no attention...)

That was funny then, but i wasn't so amused because it took me 2 hours or so to actually get him to fall asleep, after much whining and crying. Poo.

NAB: 'Where's daddy's nose?'
X - points to NAB's nose.

NAB: 'Where's daddy's belly button?'
X - lifts up NAB's t-shirt and sticks his finger into belly button.

NAB: 'Where's milky?'
X - starts to lift up NAB's t-shirt again, but stops and looks confused, then turns to mummy and gives a cheeky smile, remembering where they are supposed to be...

The boy fed himself his entire lunch (spaghetti with salmon and tomatoes) yesterday with a fork. Previously, when eating stringy noodlely type things, he mostly used his hands and sometimes, a spoon. But usually, this would be messy, and after a while, mummy usually ended up feeding him the rest of his food.

Yesterday though, he was really good! There was hardly any mess, and he finished the entire bowl of food, and after he was done with his yoghurt, he removed his bib and placed it nicely on the table whilst I cleared away stuff to the kitchen!

I am well impressed because although he is able to feed himself other food like porridge, rice, or yoghurt with a spoon, he had never used a fork much before. And now, mummy can eat her lunch at the same time more peacefully!
