Chace is

talking.... its amazing how chatty my two kids are... they just go on and on... most of the time, i wish that they can be quiet for even 5 mins! obviously to those whose kids are far behind developmentally, they probably feel like kicking me. some of the words that Chace is saying right now... before he turns 16 months in 4 days' time:

- jiejie, mummy, daddy, nai-nai, ye-ye, po-po, da-da (mida - my parents' maid)
- bus, fish, yes, bear, ball, no, wait, prea-sh (please!), bite, meow, wooh-wooh (dog barking), aa-ghhhh (lion roaring), mil-k (milk), where? (with hand signal), mine..

in other aspects of development;
- he pats himself on the chest when he is frightened
- he lies down & pats himself on the bum/thigh when I ask to him go to sleep
- he shakes his head violently when he says 'no'
- when his sister tries to snatch away from he is holding or when I try to take away something that he is holding, he will scream 'mine!!!' and try his might to hold on to the item.
- runs away when you say 'catch, catch'...
- has really good concentration - can watch the whole episode of Barney from start to end
- has really good appetite; eats more than Claire and still wakes up for milk every 2 - 3 hours at night
- walks really fast & steadily, climbs up and down the stairs on his own.
- has really good understanding of what we say to him; follows instructions
- has really good motor skills - opens and closes all the drawers, cupboards, etc and takes out everything, twists open bottle caps, containers and pours out EVERYTHING!
- does the forward-roll that he learnt at gym classes on his own
- loves swimming; normally i put him in a swim float and he is good to go - not afraid even when his head gets dunked into water!
- spits out food when he doesn't like the taste of it
