Teat-ing Problems

Since birth, Justin has been given the bottle several times during his stay at the hospital, and just twice at home during the confinement. During the second 'bottle' occasion at home he showed some signs of resistance but we didn't worry about it since he was fine with the bottle earlier.

Justin started going to the babysitter's recently and unfortunately he objected to the bottle. The babysitter had a tough time coaxing him to drink. We have since changed the teat from silicone to latex orthodondic teat. He seems more receptive with the change but generally still shows his dislike for the bottle...

Julian Swears It's a Frog

Recently we were shocked and alarmed when we heard Julian utter a certain four-letter word (which we won't write here!). We were greatly relieved when he continued by saying 'ribit-ribit' (his version of how a frog sounds). He saw the handphone and wanted us to play the 'bullfrog' ringtone for him...

So if you happen to hear Julian utter the forbidden word, please excuse him. It's quite likely to be a matter of articulation rather than manners.

Julian at 27 Months

Julian turned 27 months last 28 August 2009.

Since the arrival of Justin, Julian has been quite affectionate towards Justin. When Justin is sleeping, he would sometimes go over to pat him and say "shyang" ("sayang" or "love you" in Malay). We are sometimes worried when Julian does this because we're not sure if he'd end up being a bit rough and wake Justin up. At other times, when Julian sees Angie stroking Justin's back to induce burping after a feed, Julian would also go over and do the same.

On the talking front, the proverbial "light bulb" still has not come on. But lately, he is fond of saying "wait", and "wait-nit" ("wait a minute") with hand gestures.

He now weighs 12kg... finally putting on some decent weight.

Green! Go!

Last Friday, on our way to dinner, we happened to stop at the traffic lights. As we waited for the lights to turn green, I had the following conversation with Julian:

Me: What is your name?
Julian: Tin (referring to Justin)
Me. No... that's baby's name. What is your name?
Julian: Green! Go!
Me: (oops!... drive!...)

Julian can actually answer "What is your name?" correctly sometimes. He would answer "Wern" (his way of saying "Julian").

Justin Full Moon

Julian is one month old as of 25 August 2009.

We celebrated his full moon with lunch on 23 August 2009 in Penang. Boxes of traditional full moon goodies were also distributed.

During his first month check-up at the Taman Tun Sardon clinic, he weighed in at 4.4kg and is now 59cm in length (at birth, he was 3.3kg and 47cm respectively).
