J Summary (2Y2M9D) - A Kiss & A Special Moment

This morning, I went into J's room to pick him up and bring him down for breakfast, as I usually do. I gave him a kiss. He looked at me very sweetly, lean over and gave me a kiss on my cheek. Then he looked into my eyes with a shy smile on the face, seemed to be saying, "Mommy, I love you. Mommy, thank you for being so sweet to me, and bringing me down for breakfast".

Tears rolled down my cheeks. I have been feeling rather down these few days... at the moment, I know that it is God's divine comfort sent down to me through J.

I kissed J again, and he kissed me back, again with the same intense look of empathy.

This morning at breakfast, J started stroking my hands as I fed him. I stroke him back and said "sayang, sayang" meaning I pamper you in Singlish Malay. He repeated back saying "sayang, sayang". I know this came so timely as God's comfort to me.

Language Development

Yesterday during bedtime, we conducted a random experiment on the progress of trilingualism development. Daddy asked question in Danish, J repeated in Danish the names of animals pig, lamb, horse, dog, cat, chicks, etc. in Danish. Mummy asked the same questions in Mandarin Chinese, and J answered in Mandarin Chinese those animals. Daddy and Mommy then asked in English, which most of the animals he could not answer.

J could now count from 1-10 in Danish and Mandarin Chinese, well almost. He always missed out the number "4" in Mandarin Chinese, which might as well, since the number "4" is considered an unlucky number and not very popular. I didn't tell J that. Thus, it is a concidence that he is weak in the number 4.

Bed Time

J loves to play with "basket ball" lately with lots of laughter. These few days, in addition to his usual request of reciting the Tang dynasty poems, J has been requesting all by himself to recite the alphabet phonics and the numbers. Only after we have done that, that he is willing to sleep.
