Nate turned two years old earlier this month!
He is such a big boy. And by big, I mean BIG. Even our pediatrician noticed how differently big he is from his sisters. His hands, arms, legs, head are so much bigger. And so is his appetite!
As of our last doctor’s visit, Nate weighed 15.3 kilos. That’s still within normal weight range for boys (though quite in the upper limit, hehe). But I don’t suppose it’s time to worry about his weight, is it?
His favorites of the moment:
Toys: ball or anything that resembles one (a grape or longgan will do); a plushy turtle named “Toto”; gun a.k.a. “beya” (goodness! he got a couple of these from my SIL. Glad they’re both broken now, I’m not buying a new one!).
Plays/Games: pretending to walk a dog on a leash (sometimes it’s my belt, or the broken mouse. Cute!); tickle fight; “beya-beya” (Hay. Boys… ).
Cartoons: Pocoyo; Thomas and Friends; Mickey Mouse Clubhouse; Little Einsteins; Noddy; Elmo’s World; pretty much everything and anything on Playhouse Disney Channel.
Food: chicken, orange, truckloads of Enfagrow!
Friends: Neighbors Miguel, Rikkah and Julia; his sisters; his yaya Ate Josie.
Non-friends: Our helper, Manang Leoning (he dislikes her with a passion!)
Quirks: Throwing stuff into the trash can (stuff such as my cellphone, my wallet, Toto… ); head-banging; biting!
This is one of his more amusing quirks: he likes to drive behind the wheel! Every morning, before my husband and kids leave, he goes with them around the village. With his dad, he gets his way. That is, he gets to sit on his lap, and pretend to do the driving. With KJ-mom, no-no-no; all he gets is a ride around the village, buckled on the passenger seat. 😛
