My darling little boy has grown up so fast. Faster than I had hoped for. He is so good in all the running, jumping and climbing. He jumps with both feet off the ground! Most of the time he doesn’t like to hold hands while he walks. Definitely not when climbing the stairs (up nor down). He craves for independence. Good for him 😉
At the same time he is still rather attached to mummy and daddy. He’s much closer to daddy than he was a few months ago. It’s not always mummy all the time now. Sometimes when he’s in a bad mood or upset about something he would prefer to be with daddy. Things are good 🙂
He loves having Edward around. They play together. They fight (definitely). But they love each other. They try to imitate each other. They are such a perfect pair of brothers.
He learns a lot of the talking from Edward. He can string 3 words together now! But rarely. He’s comfortable with 2-words sentences now e.g. where Thao (where is Mae Thao), No! I-un drink (No! I want to drink),
He knows the colour white. This is because Edward has been pointing out white trains whenever they see one. So he knows white on other objects as well e.g. white stripes on his colourful pair of socks.
One thing about Oliver is that he tends to “shout” out every word he says. Not because of anger or excitement (although sometimes it is excitement)… but it seems like it’s his way of talking. Just a very active and excited little boy 🙂
One great news is that he is about to become an elder brother! I hope he will be able to cope well when our new addition arrives end of Jan 2014… he still has a few months to enjoy as the youngest child…
