I brought Nate to the doctor for typhoid vaccination last Saturday. As expected, he has grown heavier and taller. The latest stats:
Weight: 16 kg
Height: 89 cm
Good news: His height is within normal limits. (Whew, I feared he may be a shortie!)
Bad news: His weight is for a 3-year old. (Not so bad, actually, because he is turning 3 in 6 months!)
Nate also has severe skin allergies all over! Some spots on the elbows and knees are lichenified – dry, scaly and thickened. He is off chicken, seafood, chocolates and eggs for two months. Boohoo! 🙁 Dosage of his anti-allergy med (Cetirizine) has been increased, and he is now on an anti-asthma (Montelukast). Hay… The cold weather has not helped him at all.
On the brighter side, Nate remains to be extremely charming, having mastered this heart-breaker smile –
Nate is now starting to be talkative too, though still bulol a lot! My favorites are:
“Whe’ you gwing?”
“Apri-ka!” (His answer when asked the question above.)
“Kyuzam!” (When he burps or farts, usually with an “Ooops!”)
“Mashu mashu!” (while flexing his biceps ala-strongman)
“Sha-pu!” (while doing a flying side-kick! Yeah, he loves to watch Kungfu Panda, Avatar – the Legend of Ang, and the countless wuxia dvds we have on stock at home.)
It’s fun and tiring at the same time raising a boy. It’s a whole different deal than raising girls.
Oh yeah, did you notice his shirt in the pic above, lower left? Ang ku-leeet! (LOLZ) It was given by sis # 3 last Christmas. The placard sums up how mischievous Nate is.
