Letter sounds

We were a little worried as Kiefer couldn't seem to sound  'L' and 'S' well, even though he really speaks very well. His 'L' sounds like "yoo". He does "yook" (*look*), 'beu' for  *blue*. His 'S' sounds like a 'th', as though he has a short tongue.

I remembered this old post I had for Kieran and I realised that Kieran also didn't sound his 'L's at about the same age. So I guess we are ok! :D

Kiefer has a little birthmark on his right ankle.

K: can you wash away (pointing to the 5c sized spot on his ankle while I was bathing him just now)
M: No Kief, that's your birthmark. Cannot be washed off.
K: cannot? it is to protect me?
M: yes Kief. Who taught you that the birthmark protects you?
K: uncertain for a while and then said "Daddy"

but daddy didn't teach him that. Wonder who did or if he thought that up himself.

Dry night #1

We were brave last night. We had him go to bed diaperless. We made him pee one last time before he slept, lined the bed with 2 bed protectors and we all went to bed for the night. And..

We had an absolutely DRY night!


*Moving* fast

This holiday has been one crazy holiday.

It all started with us looking around at new property and found something that we really liked and placing a deposit on it. Everything went really fast from then on. We sold our current flat over 2 weekends and now are in the midst of packing and getting ready to move out of the house in about 2-3 months time. Everything's a whirl but a good sort of whirl! :D

However, I did go through a couple of days of emotional ups and downs. It was a bittersweet moment when we decided to sell our current flat. After all, this is our first home and we have 7 years of memories in this place. (And of cos, 7 years worth of stuff to store away!) I've grown to love our house a lot. The physical place as well as the people (neighbours) around us. It will be hard to move away from all these. We started our lives together, just the 2 of us in this place and our 2 boys were also born here. I only hope that with the photos that I've taken, they will also remember this childhood home of theirs.

At least, we are quite happy with the new owners of our beloved home. We've met them once and we decided that we like them. At least I know that the new owners will love this place as much as we did.

Update on the diaperless situation

Kiefer's been going diaperless in the day. In fact, he can nap without his diaper and not wet the bed. That's a 2-3hr dry stretch. We still keep him in diapers at night as he still wakes up in the morning with a fairly wet diaper. I wonder if it is just because he has diapers, he'll just pee at night. Anyway, the biggest issue now is that he doesn't tell when he wants to poop. He's pooped in his briefs on 2 occasions already! Just 2 days ago, he stood by the living room window, not moving and darn quiet. I thought he peed on the floor. He kept quiet even though I asked him if he peed (I was across the living room, at the dining table doing some work with Kieran). When I walked over, I realised he was shocked (and probably darn scared that he's gonna get a shelling), there was the biggest pile of poop on the floor! He just went and because he was only wearing shorts and no briefs, the poop simply fell onto the floor. He even stepped on a little of the poop! Luckily, the daddy was still at home and thus cleaned up the mess on the floor while I hauled the little fella into the bathroom to do a major scrub down! He hasn't pooped since that day and today I knew he was going to go and thus brought him to the toilet. But he didn't (or maybe couldn't) go. He asked for diapers but I didn't put it on for him. So gonna start watching for signs of pooping again.

Record of growth

I have this height chart that hangs behind the door of the boys' room and I've been marking their height off the chart. Was looking at it awhile ago, I decided that I'd better record their heights down somewhere lest the chart goes missing in the coming months.

Kieran's Heights
29/12/08 - 91cm
21/7/09 - 96cm
31/8/10 - 102cm
29/1/11 - 105cm
10/6/11 - 109cm

Kiefer's Heights
21/7/09 - 73cm
31/8/10 - 97cm
10/ 6/11 - 95cm

Boatses, trainses

This is how Kiefer talks now. Some times he throws in an extra 'S' when he wants to refer to the plural form for the word. So he'll go boat-ses, or train-ses. However, he doesn't do this for all his words though. Only for some words.

Oh yes, and "stuck-ke" with an extra K sound at the back! :P
