About Edison

Edison – 2 Years, 9 Months

Few days ago, my brother-in-law Kenneth asked me if we have started planning for Little Edison’s 3rd birthday. Initially, my respond was like “Huh? So fast?” When I think of it again, his third birthday is just three months from now.

Yay! My little baby is turning THREE soon. It didn’t seem like such a long time ago that he was a baby whose cheeks smelled like cottage cheese. I watch him growing up day by day. He has blossomed into a bright little boy who continually amazes me each day with his insatiable curiosity, independence and love for learning.

It is incredible to witness how much his speech progresses each day. Everyday, he will hug me and say “I love Mama!” He may not be aware of how much these three words mean to me. My heart melts every time I hear these words.

Except being a fussy eater, Little Edison is generally an easy child to care for. His fussy eating behavior used to drive me to the edge of madness. I was constantly worried about his size, his weight and not-eating enough. But at some point, I realized that this fussy eating phase is common in children. He will grow out of this phase soon.

There is nothing wrong being petite. As long as he is growing up fit and healthy, I know I’m on the right track.

This is my little boy at 2 years and 9 months old.

      Hi Ayukirana,

      Hi Sin Yee,
      Haha! Looks like I’m not the only one struggling. Our kiddos are born on the same day, remember? I believe they do have some same characteristics. Haha! Fussy eating is just one of them.

      Hi Mico,
      Thanks for your wonderful suggestion. I intend to do that too. During the school orientation, the principal mentioned that parents can arrange birthday celebration at school. But they are not allowed to be there. So, what we can do is to buy a cake and whatever necessary to bring them to school. The teachers will take care of it. If we want to take pictures, we can leave our camera at school too. The teachers will take pictures for us.

      I’ll definitely bring Edison along to choose the cake that he likes. And not forgetting the camera. It’s the first time he celebrates birthday with so many classmates. I’m sure he will be very excited about it. I plan to make some goodie packs for all his classmates too. Going to be a lot of works, but I’m more than happy to do it. 🙂

      Hi Mico,
      I intend to buy cup cakes. It’s easier to distribute to the classmates. The teacher doesn’t have to cut and less messy. But I’m not familiar with cup cakes, not sure which brand is good. Need some time to check it. I tried Crystal Jade cup cakes before, its kinda hard and Edison hates it.
