Reaching The Big Two

So today is the last day of January… I thought before the year gets any older, I should write a special post on Nathan reaching big two-year milestone.

That’s right, my little man turned two years old on Christmas Day. We celebrated it with the whole family back in my hometown.

He absolutely revelled being in the spotlight and being the centre of attention that day.

If there was one phrase that would sum his character up, I would call him…

“The Boy With No Fear”

And it’s true. I’d be hard-pressed to think of something he’s afraid of… whether it’s big dogs, swirly water whirlpools, giant slides, grown-ups... or even mummy’s and daddy’s stern voice. All he does is smile his big goofy grin and plunge right into to whatever is before him.

It’s rather scary for ME sometimes… and his daredevil streak has resulted in many a cut, bump, and bruise. But he takes it all in stride without batting an eyelash, all in the name of exploration.

So, in honour of his Big Two milestone, I decided to jot down this list of his favourite things… just something to freeze the picture at this point in time…

Things Nathan Loves…

Trucks

Dancing

Bubbles

The colour yellow

Cheerios

Cashew nuts

Playing the guitar (pretend playing)

Water… as in swimming and playing in it

Prawns… especially in the form of dim sum like siew mai and har gao

Playing the comedian… he just absolutely enjoys making people laugh

Cinderella and Rapunzel (Tangled)… yup, that’s right, I’m talking Disney princesses

People… he is totally the most social and friendly little guy and loves being around people

~~~

That’s my boy!

And so Nathan’s very first day of kindergarten is over. It was a mixture of good, bad, sweet and sour. I think that so much happens throughout the day, it can be challenging for a little person to filter through it all.

These days my days are packed full to the brim. From the moment I wake up to the sound of Grace calling through the baby monitor and Nathan’s cheeky face peering at me over the edge of the bed… to the evening when I finally tuck them into bed and say goodnight.
