I have to admit, I have been extremely tardy with updating on the milestones. It's been so hectic and i hardly have the time to sit at the computer especially with Davina needing my attention always.

I only have time on my mobile these days and even those time, is very limited. The panda period is tough but this too, will pass ūüôā

Here's Aidan's updates from 23 - 26 months!

Untitled

  • At 23 months, I was still latching Aidan. While I know some may frown on latching as it may cause contractions, I have also heard of mothers latching throughout their pregnancy. I decided to continue latching though I reduced the frequency due to my nursing aversion.
  • Aidan still seem to enjoy school and playing with the kids. There were some mild cases of Aidan being bitten by his schoolmates but I heard that Aidan continued playing with them. LOL
  • Aidan also started recognising my tummy as meimei then.

  • Aidan's childcare had a bout of HFMD so we took him out of childcare for 3 weeks to be safe as we couldn't risk him contracting HFMD and passing to me at my final trimester.
  • Because we didn't send him to school, we missed celebrating his birthday at school. Instead we had a simple celebration at home where we discovered he is scared of lighted candles.
  • He can't pronounce his name still so he calls himself A. He would refer to his items like "A clothes", "A shoes", "A eat".
  • Aidan is still very picky over his food. Most of the times, he refuses to chew and would only take soft food. He loves soup a lot!

  • He is extremely peckish and would want to snack. We have bought lots of puffs, biscuits and snacks for him.
  • Meimei arrived 2 weeks after his 2 years birthday. He loves meimei a lot. He would hug and kiss her. But he doesn't know his strength, so we would watch out how he treats Davina lol.
  • Aidan is still very addicted to YouTube and we have had many episodes of him throwing tantrums just to get his way. Terrible twos?

  • Aidan recognises us. When we show him pictures of us in the past, he can still recognise us and would call us.
  • He is also very helpful and we would ask him to help pick up items etc and he would happily agree to do so.
  • He loves to play with toys especially the cutting toys. I think it's because he watches those videos on YouTube and is happy to see the same items at home.

So far Aidan has not showed any jealousy to Davina, will see how it goes!

Davina at one month old!

  • Davina like Aidan is exclusively breastfed. But her feeding behaviour is the opposite of Aidan. While Aidan latches on strong and long, Davina drinks for a short period of time but frequently.
  • Davina also rejects bottles unlike Aidan. She wakes every 1.5 hours and needs to either latch or be cuddled.
  • She sleeps better with us around her. We would pat her or hug her to sleep.
  • Davina seems to be more serious as compared to Aidan. I suspect her personality will be more like Skai's. LOL

Pregnancy the second time, makes me feel even more tired than the first time. Maybe the fact that I'm older plus having to chase Aidan is the reason why. HAHHAA. Sorry for the tardy updates, here's Aidan's milestones from 20 - 22 months old!

  • Aidan started childcare at 20 months old as there was a childcare slot FINALLY. Initially, Skai and I had plans to only send Aidan to childcare at 2 years old but since a slot finally opened in Punggol, we leapt at it!
  • He loves school and hardly cried. He loves socialising with his friends and have lots of fun. I think childcare is fun for him and we think that it's good that he socialises.
  • Unfortunately, he also fell sick pretty often in childcare. Cough, cold etc. He was even hospitalised for a bit.
  • I started dabbling into essential oils to help both Aidan and myself. Since I'm pregnant, I can't take much medicine. Also, I didn't want Aidan to take too much medicines too.
  • I still latch but I have stopped pumping. Latching was a bit difficult at this stage as I suffered from nursing aversion. More on this, soon!

  • With childcare, Aidan tend to sleep a bit earlier. While he is still energetic, he gets tired easily now.
  • He has started to be a bit more vocal these days. Saying more, milk, papa, mama, meimei, Aaaaa (as in referring to himself), sit in mandarin etc
  • He is still so manja which I love. He kisses our face all the time. LOVE IT. He is so cute when he does that! Though recently he started¬†giving wet sloppy kisses hahhaha
  • He is still very very sociable.
  • Unfortunately after his bout at the hospital, he has been introduced to the land of YouTube. ADDICTION MAXIMUS.

Can't wait to see how he reacts when Davina is here ūüėÄ

Again, this mummy is tardy blogging. Been extremely exhausted as of late!

Here are Aidan's milestones since hitting 18 and 19 months old!

  • For his 18th months, we brought Aidan to a cruise! His first ever trip on a boat, an extremely large one hahaha. He enjoyed himself and loved all the activities! Will definitely share more on this soon!
  • He is still extremely energetic, which is why I can hardly stay up after his bedtime (I know most of my mummy blogger friends blog after their kiddos bedtimes). I usually latch Aidan to sleep and tend to sleep when he does. Personally I don't believe in forcing his bedtime. I know some friends had suggested the 'cry it out' method but that is too painful for us. Like weaning, I leave it up to Aidan. We can provide a suitable environment but we will not force.
  • Meltdown central at times. Especially when things do not go his way. Terrible twos are coming HAHAHAH.
  • He is so manja which I love. He kisses our face all the time. LOVE IT.
  • He is still very sociable. No separation anxiety or stranger danger so far. Loves to run up to people and play, grab their hands or hug them.
  • He loves to play with other kids... however most of the times, the older kids do not want to play with him. LOL.
  • Very active, always gesturing around, touching things, digging items. Hard to get him to sit down and concentrate.
  • He still latches to sleep. I have actually stopped pumping at the 18 month mark but am still latching him.
  • He is so slim now! Pretty much lost most of his baby fats!

So far so good! We brought him to a trip to Bangkok recently, will update that soon!

I gotta apologise for being so tardy with blogging. Sadly I hardly have the time to blog anymore and am pretty much tired. Most days I go to bed cuddling my hyper active son although I tell myself to go blog after his bedtime.

Here are Aidan's milestones since hitting 16 and 17 months old!

  • He is extremely energetic. He is still a night owl and sleeps super late at night. While we have tried to sleep train him, it is really tough. I also think it's because we get home so late after fetching Aidan from my MIL's place (with the obligatory stay there and chit chat for a while because Skai says it is not a hotel where you pick and go). Aidan would of course like to spend some time playing with us. We tried to minimise playing so as not to hype him up some more. Mums guilt also kicks in cos we hardly get to spend time with him ¬†except for weekends :/
  • A taste of the upcoming terrible twos. When we take away things from him, sometimes he goes into a full blown meltdown. While we were able to distract him previously, it is tough to do so now. Unfortunately for him, we usually stand our ground and not give in to him.
  • Speech is still slow. Aidan is one of those kiddos who walks before he talks. He is a great walker but not so much of a talker. He babbles a lot but hardly speaks. He tends to be repetitive with his words e.g Papa, Ball ball, bao bao. He did say Mama previously but recently he calls me Baby. HAHHAA. A typical day where we read books to him, we will say 'Zebra!' and he will reply 'Ball ball!'. Every animal to him = ball ball. LOL.
  • He plays favourites. At my MIL's place, he tends to stick to my in-laws because they basically give in to him. At home, at night, he would try to stick to me. The other day at night, I tried to pass him to Skai to carry but Aidan only wanted me to carry him.
  • Recently he keeps waking up at night and because he only wants me, I recently hard to stay up in the middle of the night coaxing him. 2 days of 2am - 5am sleepless nights. GG MAX.
  • Persistent latcher. I tried to slowly cut down on latching at night but it's tough. He ONLY wants to latch even if we offer a bottle or fresh milk.
  • Extremely happy and friendly. He loves people. He would go up to people and make friends.

We will be going for our first cruise as a family next week and I can't wait to see how Aidan takes to it! Especially with the Dreamworks characters! I love this stage, as it's super fun playing with him. It is also very tiring but it's all worth it ūüôā
