Jianna is 1 Year Old!

Jianna turned 1 year old on 30 March 2013. She now weighs 8kgs and is 74cm tall.

Here are her updates:
  • She has been fully on breast milk until one. On 1 April 2013, she was introduced to formula milk.
  • She's an 'expert' at walking now.
  • She can communicate with us using 'sign language' and various sounds like 'ah', 'eh', and 'mm'.
  • Shortly after the previous post, she began saying 'o' when holding the handphone to her ear. She also says 'o' if we are on the phone with someone.
  • Current favourite toys include stackable cups (but not stacking them yet), mini Jenga blocks, teddy bear, musical elephant and of course, the item her brother(s) are playing with :-P.
  • She gets jealous when her brothers, especially Justin sits on Mummy's lap or is carried by Mummy. She would try to come between Justin and Mummy and even try to push Justin away, verbally fussing at the same time. She would 'demand' for a feed, knowing that she would get Mummy to herself that way!

Repeating what we did for her brothers, we celebrated Jianna's first birthday with lunch at Sea Palace Restaurant in Taman Pekaka, Penang. We booked 3 tables. Again, keeping to "tradition", we baked yet another teddybear cake. This time it's an orange cake, and coincindentally looked like her favourite teddy bear.

Julian at 70 Months

Julian turned 70 months old on 28 March 2013. Here are his updates:
  • Started swimming lessons on 10 March 2013 at the USM swimming pool. His teacher says he's totally not afraid of the water, but doesn't follow instructions too well (as expected).
  • Although still very rudimentary, his Mandarin seems to be improving both in speech and writing.
  • He initiated a "volcano" game in which we were required to name all sorts of volcanoes, e.g. apple volcano, strawberry volcano, etc. So, the idea is to come up with as many things as possible acccording to different categories such as fruits, vegetables, vehicles, etc., often going by alphabetical order.

Justin at 44 Months

Justin turned 44 months old on 25 March 2013. This month, we noticed that he's quite a problem solver. When he 'couldn't' write '8' in one of his activity books, he drew a circle and a crescent beneath. Number '9' was a 'c'+'1'.
