Very late post….
Joel has turned two on 25th of Jan… Well, there’s an old saying about terrible 2, it’s really true! NO KIDDING! Joel used to be very quiet and quite easy to manage. But now, he is getting more active and sometimes very difficult to manage! We really didn’t expect this to come… Knowing more words, he’ll say NO, DON’T WANT! I WANT! Whenever we hit him or scolded at him, he would keep quiet and refused to look at us. GOSH! His cries loudly and embarrassed us often in the public!! Sigh…. Terrible TWO!
Well, he is a happy boy and very socialize.. :) He always make us laugh… He starts to learn a lot of new words and things. He likes to make funny faces to attract our attention. We’ve taught him to be polite by greeting people and he did it almost every encounter with anyone… :) He starts to say ‘Please’ whenever he wants something and ‘Thank You’ when he received them. He listens to instructions pretty well too and sometimes is my great helper… Well, if he’s not naughty, he is a sensible boy… :)
This year, we decided to have a small party at home and invited a few of our close relative. I’ve ordered a cake from Rei with Joel’s favorite cartoon characters, Barney and Elmo. We decorated the whole house with balloons. Thanks to my dear brother for blowing the balloons… :) Joel was having lots of fun that day.
Birthday cake from Rei! Yummy! We finished all on that night…
Simple decoration for the party
Oh! It’s so difficult to capture a nice family potrait
He has two cousins around his age and he enjoyed their company very much! The three of them were having so much fun that when time to go home, the two cousins cried!! Hope to have such a gathering again…
DH bought him a set of drum an a small car as his birthday present this year.
