It’s been awhile since I post a Top 5 and its high time to do it! In front of my eyes, my baby is turning into a toddler and as always, I’m fascinated, at awe and excited as ever, bittersweet if you may say so. Baby’s Top 5 is now Toddler’s Top 5, can you believe that? Sniff sniff. Drama aside, I do believe now that little people aka toddlers are like sponges, they absorb e-ve-ry thing including things you don’t want them to know, at least not yet, I’ve seen it in my own shiny shiny eyes.
Note: Photo HEAVY!
Toddlers are like blenders with the lids off.
1) Technology – he loves to learn new things and I think we are fully enjoying the benefit of home internet connection and Youtube! ABC’s, 123’s, shapes and colors – name it he knows it! His recent favorite Youtube channels include Busy Beavers, Mother Goose Club and Pocoyo English!
Desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones equals kiddo’s entertainment and shut-up-sit-down button. :)
It’s either bed story time or youtube video time. The latter is the most.
The only downside is when there is no internet connection. The solution – download his videos and keep one on the desktop and on all six laptops!
Another downside is when there is power outage. He wants his shapes and colors that bad during the Glenda typhoon he cried his heart out until he fell asleep probably dreaming of red circles and 2 blue squares.
2) That does not mean he sits all day and stare on a screen or a smartphone, he runs everywhere!
Island hop at Hundred Islands, Pangasinan City
Somewhere in BGC, Taguig City
After his first haircut at Giggles and Wiggles, Market Market!
Somewhere along Alabang Town Center – On the run with his apple.
In our living room at Trese Martirez, Cavite
Smirking at SM Baguio
PS – That’s my school over there at the background. #nostalgia
In our hotel room somewhere in Session Road – An apple a day and an apple a night.
3) The things he learned today, he applies as soon as possible!
In this case, before our orders were serve… – rewarding our work-filled friday at TGIF.
Spelling our FRIDAYS perfectly, pointing which is red and white, coloring and singing the phonic song. :)
Getting sticky with his Shakey’s Manager’s Choice sticker.
4) He still loves to food.
After picking out green bell peppers and black olives on his slice of pizza, I mean on the pizza pan.
Eating on his own. He prefer a big bowl as he loves his soup just like his momma! ;)
Like the #baudelaireorphans, Clyde is a #cakesniffer, or more like cake snatcher. @SMMarikina
Chowking’s yang chow and chopsuey.
His old favorite person and new favorite fruit.
Barrio Fiesta’s raw tomato.
Max’ Ube cake.
Banapple’s bolognese is in danger.
Snacking on red bell pepper! Can you believe that?
He wants his chicken skinless.
He wants his own food on his own plate with his own spoon, fork or knife whatever the case maybe, and he wants his own drink in his own glass with straw or ice if that’s what you are having.
Eating on his own is a second nature after breastfeeding. I wasted my money buying Avent bottles, we rarely use them – for water.
Proud to say that he could eat an entire apple in one sitting while watching his videos, or a cob or two of corn on our way to site inspections! :D
5) This young man knows how to show his love to me. <3
He kissed the scar on my back whenever he sees it peeking through.
He wouldn’t enter the elevator even when it is his favorite ride (no need to exchange my 10php coin for a token) if I’m not with him to go in.
Wherever we go, as long as we are together, we are home. I love you baby.
