1 Year, 11 Months Old

- belated post. One week late! -



About Elyssa:

1. Weight : approx 10.8 kg

2. She still surprises me daily with new words - like today, she said "So Windy" and "Thunder! Too Loud". This morning, as she climbed up the car, she said "Elyssa... so clever!! " Ha hahhhh...... must tell her that self praise is no praise.

3. She still mixes up her colours. When I asked her the colour of the black t-shirt I was wearing, she happily said "Pink Colour". She gets her blue, green and red mixed up too. For this, I think hubby is to be blamed - for teaching her the 6 colours of her ball all at the same time! Must teach her one or two colours at a time mah......

4. She is a creature of habit and thrives on routine. She has her fixed daily routine at my parent's place which works well for her. Will write about that soon. On weekends, we sometimes end up with a cranky girl cos her sleep/play/eat routine gets mixed up.

5. She has a mind of her own and once she decides on something, it's really hard to change her mind. Stubborn as a mule! And very fierce when she doesn't get her way.

6. She is as greedy as ever. It's very easy to convince her to do or say something if the reward for her is food! Hubby takes advantage of this by making her say/do three things nightly before handing over her milk bottle : 1) "Thank You Daddy" 2) "Love Daddy" 3) A kiss on the lips. :)

7. It still takes an average time of 45 minutes (on bad days - 1 hour+) to make her sleep each night. Sometimes I pat her until my whole arm gets sore. And only mummy can accompany her to sleep so I can't "delegate" to hubby. :)

8. Her current favourite songs : "Burung Kakak Tua" (she loves the "Letrum, Letrum, Letrum Oo La Laa" part) and the "Bangun Pagi, Gosok Gigi" song.
Both taught by Justin koko who learnt from his kindy. She can sing almost the whole of both songs but only when she feels like it. This girl doesn't entertain song requests!
