August 2005


Princess is on her way further up of her being a Neanderthal kid; she does a lot of:

Jumping;

Dancing her Hawaiian style with more on a butt work;

Her precision on throwing of objects on a certain goal is achieved;

Jabbers on lots of words but still most of them are unrecognizable;

Uses lots of gestures and facial expressions, and an addition to that is her tiger look when
she’s angry, and a twinkling eyes when super happy;

She’s more demanding and a new attitude of being bossy to her nanny;

The “only me? attitude occurred (she wants to be followed every time);

The let-me-do-it-alone behavior;

Happily annoys her Dad and Mom;

Uses shouting and crying as means to get what she wants;

Always run away from her nanny whenever she needs to have a diaper change;

Loves to throw food on the floor and laughs while her nanny picks every morsel of food;

Wants to carry her baby brother and plant thousand of kisses everyday;

Became a daddy’s girl;

Her best friend ever is Barney, second is Po from teletubbies;

Loves to eat cheese and chocolates;

Always on the phone and pretending that she’s having a conversation with her “mama? (grandmas’);

Puking is also one of her means to get her way with us;

Sings with mommy and daddy some kids songs and recites in her alien language some nursery rhymes;

Loves to read books, color, scribble objects and make lots of lines and tells mommy that it’s letter “a?;

Wants to carry and cuddle her baby brother;

Loves to eat ice cream.

It’s final her 2nd birthday would be in KFC…

Every day Ate princess would approach Momsy and ask if she could kiss Sean and the funny thing is that she’ll readily cross her arms, as told by her uncle, so as not to crush Sean or worst do some hideous acts to her baby brother.

She’ll kiss first on Sean’s face, which resulted to lots of rashes on both cheeks then down to his brother’s arms and plant tiny kisses with loud sound on the legs.

What a wonderful sight of my adorable kids, older sibling wants to take care of her little brother but there are also times when she is attacked by jealousy and the very good and responsible “ate? would aimingly hurl her toys or worst box or pull the leg or arm of the new baby. That’s the time that the tamed sheep would change to a fierce cub!

She has changed! One incident, she hurt Sean again and her Dad and I got angry with her, we told her that she should not do bad things to little brother. What she did, she batted her eyelashes and turned her back against us and walked away heading to the door while staring with a tiger look on us, and we were shouting at her coz she’s near to bump her face on the wall! What a knee-high Neanderthal she is!

Hello from BabyCenter!

Your toddler doesn’t whine to be annoying; he’s just easily frustrated and sticking with a tactic that works. It’s hard not to cave in when your child starts in with the grating, fingernails-on-the-blackboard voice, but you’re better off holding your ground. If you can show your toddler that whining won’t get him anywhere, he’s more likely to give it up and find more effective ways of communicating. Where to start? When you hear your child whining, gently point it out to him and ask him to use his regular voice. Toddlers don’t always know what whining is and they may not be able to hear it in their own voice

Happy 23 Months our dear Princess!!!

We love you Sweetie!

Mwahh!:)

Being the center or the focal point of our daily lives for 22 months, and as the new baby brother came to the scene it’s quite a new scenario to her even though we prepared her mentally and emotionally for the coming of her beloved brother.

At the onset of my conception of Sean, we kept on telling her and familiarizing that soon she would be a bigger sister (or an “ate?) and surely everything goes on her head as she ‘s a quick learner but still she can’t keep to herself the feeling of jealousy every time she sees me or her father carrying Sean.

I know this is normal but surely, we want to keep baby Sean from flying objects as the bigger sister would annoyingly hurl her toys or books towards the new born baby. As much as possible whenever Sean is sleeping peacefully or just gleefully stretching and smiling adorably in his crib, we make it a point to give our undivided attention to our loving daughter.

Most of the time (as for the moment that Sean is still very small and needs a lot of my time and attention, of course, breastfeeding is one reason), she’s with her Dad and uncle or with the nanny but I make it a point that we have also mommy and daughter time spent together.

Giving more attention and love to her is an assurance that still she’s our princess, even though she’s making moves that would really make your head spin…

Activities such as reading books with her, coloring her special notebook, scribbling, singing nursery songs and playing inside her tent house gives her relief from the special attention she wants to have always.

We love you very much our dearest ate Princess…
