21 months old

Dear Nathan,

At 22 months, you can do / say so much more than before! Your favourite song is "Baa Baa Sheep", and you know the parts that go "Baa Baa Black Sheep" and "Yes Sir! Yes Sir!". You also know some lines to "Twinkle, Twinkle", and are able to sing along to some parts of "Old MacDonald". You've also started to hum tunes, and the tune you usually hum is baa baa black sheep. The funny thing is that you'd clap and go 'yay' after you've finished humming the entire song. Very cute to watch. You are able to count from 1 to 10, though you tend to skip '5'. You'd sit on top of a slide, say "1, 2, 3, go", before you slide down. Mommy gets very amused watching you at the playground. You've also started to help when mommy/daddy takes a shower for you. You'd ask for shower gel, and you'd rub it over your face, body and legs. Now that you know more words, you'd point and say the names of objects you recognise when we are out and about. "Guitar! Car! Boat! Bus! Baby! Cat! Spider! Lizard! Ants! Elephant! Horse!...".

Daddy had to work late as well as go back to work on several Saturdays / Sundays this month, so we didn't get to go out much. Thankfully, po po comes over to help look after you and Noah when daddy's home late. There were several weekends when mommy had to look after both of you alone. It was rather exhausting, but not too difficult, since you were pretty cooperative most times. Once, when mommy was feeding Noah, just before your afternoon nap, you fell asleep waiting. 

You continue to be a really sweet 'kor kor' to Noah, and mommy hopes that you'd be able to play well together with Noah is older. I think we've gotten you confused over the 'kor kor' title when we say, "Noah, kor kor's home" etc... that now you've started to refer to Noah as 'kor kor'. 

You are rather creative and are better able to play with your toys on your own. Once, you put the yellow screws from your little engineer set on the little red stool, and started clapping and singing the birthday song. And mommy must agree that you little creation does look like a birthday cake. I'll need to replicate the cake and post a picture here some time soon.

Mommy's heart is filled with so much joy as I watch you grow up. You've filled our home with much laughter, and we know that there will be more as Noah grows older and starts running around too. Mommy looks forward to celebrating your 2nd birthday, and I already miss the months that had gone by. Know that mommy and daddy love you very much.

Hugs & kisses,
