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.
