Lil Nigel is now 22 months old. In just another 2 months and he will be 2 years old !! Day by Day, you can see how much he has learnt and understand. His growth is really rapid right now! Everyday, he seem to learn a new word. But whether he wants to say it out, well.. it depends on his mood.
Nigel's inclination seems to be more towards music and sounds. He can listen to tunes around 2 times and he can hum the tune out. He listens to noises and sounds around him and will try to imitate the sound on his own, like bells, horns and car engines. Thus he prefers singing to talking. He is pretty animated. He will sing or hum the tune with actions and expressions. He can sing ABC song pretty clearly. He love "wheels on the bus", "twinkle twinkle lil star". He is learning "heads & shoulders". But he doesn't wan to sing to just anyone. So only immediate family can hear him singing. Haiz. He is still shy but he has improve a lot. Shawn and I can finally have meals outside, just the 3 of us without much fuss. He can even sit on normal chairs and will not attempt to go off on his own (some places do not have Baby chairs). He is fine with adults but still doesn't want to play with just anyone, only a selected few. But it's still No No No to Kids and Babies. Sad thing is, He still calls me "A" ... Sobs.
He is going to Gymnademics now. They are having a promotion @ $388 for unlimited lessons in March. Just right, I will be having my 1 week March holidays. So far he has attended 2 lessons. It is not as good as what I had expected but it is something different for him. There is pitching tuning, at least I can learn how to teach him music. There is Gym lessons, he is learning monkey bars, beam walking, etc. Also of cos is Flash cards. I am glad he still remembers his flash cards. I guess he love the classes as he comes home and was trying to roll around the house! And humming to " Heads & Shoulders".
