Happy Birthday to Douglas and Dominic!
Not that Aiden understands what “birthday” is just yet.
Nor does he understand the concept of sharing.
Everything is “mine, mine, mine.”
He didn’t like the jumper.
And was quite scared of the slide inside the jumper.
So afterwards he refused to go back inside the jumper.
I guess it isn’t fun because he doesn’t know how to jump yet.
Once he can jump, he will love the jumper.
Aiden kept bringing the toys to the backyard.
This is his favorite item at the Chan’s home.
He is still not into group fun, except if everyone is surrounding him.
We went outside a while to look at the cars parked in the driveway.
He was amazed to see all the cars.
He did not eat the birthday cake this time either.
Nor did he join the group photo.
He’s always got this smirk on him these days.
But I love his facial expressions!
I think with school’s structure he does like for us to be in a line together at times.
Not just sitting at the bottom of the staircase together, but also standing against the kitchen wall too.
He’s so sweet though, every day he will grab slippers for himself and both of us.
He’s more adamant about that than we are about putting it on.
But of course he still will go barefeet, it’s easier to run and get around without big floppy slippers on.
Pretty soon he won’t fit in this narrow opening between counter and fridge.
But for now it’s still fun for him to play and hide.
When he gets hurt he likes to get our attention just so we can kiss him.
Once we do he gets over it, otherwise he keeps pointing and whimpering.
Daddie’s turn to give Aiden some love.
And of course being a big boy means eating corn….on the cob.
He refused to eat the kernel separately since he saw Daddie eating corn on the cob.
But I prefer he not eat it this way because it will get stuck between his teeth.
He doesn’t like the feel of it when it does and he also still detest brushing his teeth.
Maybe stooped as low as bribing him with sitting in Daddie’s car if he brushes his teeth.
It works, but only if I have the door open, the lights on, and the car in sight.
But he did do a very good job of eating from this small cob.
Daddie has taken more time to read with Aiden these days.
I guess it’s more fun now that Aiden can interact with him when they are “reading.”
Daddie said we should buy Aiden a tent.
Something different to keep him engaged.
He probably would enjoy sleeping in one.
It’s a pain now that he can take off his own jacket.
He refused to put on a sweater and I told him we can’t leave his room until he does since it’s so cold.
It took a while but he finally grabbed a shirt for me to put it on for him.
Stubborn little guy! Putting on socks takes as long as 5 minutes because he will refuse your help.
He’ll yell the 4 letter word “MINE” as if we are going to take it away.
