Edison – 18 months

Edison - 18 monthsMy little prince turns 18 months today. He has blossomed into a bundle of curiosity with a demanding mind of his own.

At this age, I would say the biggest reward to me is that he is able to call “mama” every time he sees me. He will hug and kiss me, although he is still a little bit shy.

He continually learns about this world by listening, looking, touching, tasting and smelling. He likes to find out how things work, i.e. turning on a music player or switch, open and close drawers, press buttons on mobile phone etc.

One of his mischievous acts was he switched off the mini fridge in Godpa’s room without anyone’s knowledge. Even my helper didn’t notice it! At the end, the ice melted into a pool of water in the room.

Little Edison always has a lovely surprise in store for us (be it good or bad!). When we ask him to do something, he may actually do it. He can understand a lot more than what we think.

Nowadays, he can even follow simple instructions like keeping his toys in his toy box after playing, throwing unwanted papers into the trash bin etc. But sometimes, he just refuses to accept the word “no” from me.

His favorite activities include emptying and filling containers in paddling pool, scribbling with markers and pens, walking around the neighborhood and watching the stars and moon at night.

Everyday is a busy day for Edison.

I’m so glad to be able to witness his amazing development day by day.  🙂

    On Sept 11 2007, I received a call from home to announce the arrival of my nephew.

    Walking to this juncture, I’m sure many would wonder why my nephew is my precious Godson?

    Having be with Edison for those months, I gradually bear a close affinity to him and would want something more endearing. Hence, I am proud to announce Little Edison as my Godson.

    Edison is a curious toddler that likes to fiddle and ponders at his surroundings. Armed with a curious mindset and good learning ability, this boy can impersonate what Grandma does and copies what Grandpa completes.

    Sensing our infinite love for him, Edison can be a little mischievous at times.

    He would go against all odds to accomplish things we (ahem*) wouldnt realy want him to. Turning on water taps to see cascading water gushing out the noose, standing on his toes to peep at the spread on our dinner table, pushing the chairs in our family garden, surfing TV channels and observing how amazing it is whenever image changes as he exerts strength onto the colourful buttons, goes into hiding whenever he sees the aloof doggie who barked at him that defining day, etc…

    Everyone, including avid readers in this blog, yearns our little tikes to grow up and have fun.

    The world may not be a weekend as we hope it to be. But as parents and closed guardians to them, what we can do it to inculcate good values and skills to them. Let them know it is pertinent to practise kindness in life. Fill them with wisdom and equalities to attain that balance. Hand them rewards and fun when they do things right. Guide them to the right track when they unintentionally carry out the wrong acts. Feed them with morals and subjects that may nourish them when they grow up. Give them care and support when they are down. Tell them that it’s ok to fall in life. But, we must pick ourselves up and look ahead.

    Remain positive and optimistic.

    Be strong but never conceited.

    Lets start and encourage our prince and princess at home to stand. They are our hopes. And, will continue to be..

    Kids at this age can really understand a lot, so we can’t underestimate their comprehensive power. Keep talking and the more he’ll learn. It’s such a fun time watching them responding to what we say, huh? 🙂

    Btw, I’ve tagged you in my latest post. I hope you can continue with the tag.
