The day before yesterday was when I first noticed Nya’s bottom two front teeth cutting through her gums. So since she’s always been drooling tonnes of saliva since day one as an infant, she now drools even more……..
Thankfully she’s just as cheerful as ever and happy as a clam, none of that crankiness and irritability that accompanies the teething period. I’ll try to take a few pictures using my camera’s macro function later when the little tyke wakes up, hopefully it doesn’t come out as a blur.
Recently Nyx has started to help herself to her little sister’s pacifiers! Holey moley…… I reckon its due to her wanting to get more attention, cos she obviously knows she’s not supposed to do that. This week I’ve managed to teach her all the colours, counting up to 20 (she pronounces 15 as five-teen and 17 as sehburnteen), and the names of african animals. She’s also getting so good at babysitting Nya. Sometimes when Nya falls asleep next to her on the bed either during their daytime naps or at night, Nyx will put her index finger against her lips and tell Guojun and I “shhhh….. Meimei is sleeping….” The sentences she forms are much more complete and are getting longer, however she still has quite abit of work to do when it comes to pronouncing her R’s and L’s.
We usually give her “time-outs” or moments of “solitary confinement” in one of the bedrooms but that doesn’t work anymore cos she will just climb onto the bed or find something to step on and turn the lights. Then she’ll start finding toys to play with, books to flip through or just sing and talk to herself. So recently her daddy started to put her in the garage for “time-outs” when she starts behaving badly. Since last week whenever she gets angry with Guojun she would shout at him saying “do you want to go to the garage???!!!!!!” Pengz……..
Today’s lesson was about the seaside so this evening I decided to take Nyx to the oyster farm where there are several things she can relate to such as boats, the shore, seagulls, the water and sand. She kept bugging me to let her carry Nya so for a short while I let the two girls ride together in the stroller.
Video of Nyx prancing to her favourite bathroom song now and below is a typical revision “period”. Nya has to sit in during Nyx’s lessons so she can pick up early, haha.
Spot the Meimei
I have decided against shaving the royal Meimei’s hair as the bald spot on the back of her head is sprouting quite abit of hair already, phew! In the meantime we shall just cover up with some of mommy’s and older sis’s hats.
The “always-holding-hands” girls
Scary part of the show. “mei mei I’ll protect you!”
So this is how the two girls watch TV together now, after the quarantine. Its been such a painful couple of weeks trying to keep the two girls apart.
