*Wee Wee Training*

@ 26 months 3 weeks 5 days

*hot subject now eh with most 2 yr olds…*. Mine goes like this… 

Ryan’s wee wee training had not been consistent. Usually after 2 or 3 wet episodes (training pants), I’ll put him back on diaper assuming he wasn’t ready. Then a couple days later, we’ll repeat the same old process. 

Yesterday, 11th July marked the first day I stripped him off his diaper, off his training pants.

There were two accidents yesterday morning. The first, he told us he wanted to ‘shee-shee” but before we could get to the washroom, he wet his pants. I brought him to the toilet and asked if he still want to ‘shee shee’. He said yes. Huh??? But he did. Looks like he actually held his pee and finished off the remaining on the WC. For his effort, I gave him the thumbs up and big clap for telling us about it. He sure like the praises as he was beaming proudly here and there.

Second time, not so lucky. He was jumping up and down when I heard the sound of ‘shee-shee’ flowing down. He stood there stagnant and I knew the mission had failed. Sigh…

Later, when it was nap time I let him pee again in the toilet before I changed him back into diaper. While he was having his milk, we recap on what happened (the wee wee incidents) and reminded him to let mommy know when he wants to pee next time.

When he woke up from his nap about 2.5 hours later, I was so surprised to find his diaper clean and dry. I asked if he wanted to ‘shee-shee’, he said yes. Quickly brought him to the washroom and pee he did. Wow! Wow! Wow! He was so happy when we praised him again for his success. Ryan oh Ryan… Hahaha..

We continued to ask Ryan if he wants to go toilet like every an hour or so. At one point he actually got quite annoyed with our constant reminders that he actually screamed ‘NO’. Blehhh. Anyways, whatever it is, annoyed or pleased, no more ‘accidents’ that whole afternoon until the night. Yippeeeee!!!

When I was tucking him in bed yesterday night, Ryan told me he wanted to ‘shee-shee’. Bad mommy assumed it was another trick of his to get away from sleep. So I brushed it away and told him to ‘shee-shee’ into his diaper. Poor boy must be so confused.

Ryan: Mommy, baby want (to) shee shee
Mommy: You sure?
Ryan: Sure
Mommy: It’s okay, you have your diaper on. You can shee shee into your diaper.
Ryan: I WANT (to) SHEE SHEE!! (he sounded a bit geram)
Mommy: Ok.. you don’t lie to mommy ar. Come.
Ryan: Mommy forgot
(He was probably thinking why is his mommy so forgetful, at one point ask him to pee into the WC, then now asked him to pee on his diaper)

True enough.. he did it again in the toilet. Gosh.. don’t I feel sorry for making bad judgement of my boy.  

12 July

No accidents, clean dry diaper during his nap, saving me another 3 pull up diapers for the day and he’s also starting to tell us he wants to pee without us probing. Phew…

Good job!

Update: 13 July

I got another surprise from Ryan this morning. At around 6.45am (Ryan usually wakes up around this time lately), he woke me up saying he wants to ‘shee shee’. I was sooooooo tempted to ask him to pee into his diaper again but my conscience got me. I dragged myself up and off we went to the toilet. As I was taking off his diaper, guess what.. instead of stinky stained wet diaper, what greeted me was another clean dry diaper! He actually held his pee for more than 9 hours? Fluke shot? We’ll see tonight. :D

….. it’s actually quite tiring having to bring a kiddo to the washroom so many times a day.. but….but.. I guess it’s all part and parcel of parenthood and the end of the day it’s gonna be all worth it eh. *beaming*

~~I so luv this shot~~

* My boy is sure no camera shy. He was pretty cooperative throughout the one hour session. After every few shots, he would go to Uncle Benjamin (the photographer) request to see his own pictures on the camera. Then he would say “nice“. *thick face*

For more…  check out my FB

**Update 3 Jul 08.

We have some of the previous studio shoot pictures hanging on the wall. This morning, Ryan said this to me:

Ryan: Mommy, I want (to) go there
Mommy: Where do you want to go?
Ryan: There, there (pointing at the pictures). I wan (to) go take pictures!

Hahahaha… he sure had fun yesterday. :D

Aspiring Singer??

@ 26 months 1 week 1 day

The V-Smile educational video console also comes with a mic. Occasionally Ryan would request us to play his fav song (when you’re happy and you know it) and he will naturally grab the mic and start singing his song.

Yesterday was like any other day, he grabbed the mic and sang………..


*totally focussed*

@ 26 months

 

Ryan was extremely difficult to handle during the first few weeks of last month. He was unreasonable, cranky, throwing tantrums like every other minute. Tucking him in bed had been a struggle every time without fail. Every night I had to drag him into the room. Poor baby, for the first two weeks he never fell asleep without tears in his eyes. Nap time was no better. Thank goodness that did not last long. 2 weeks ago, his temperament took a change for the better. He has been so angelic and goofy now that he’s constantly putting a smile on everyone’s face with the things he does and says. He is such a happy kid now.

Ryan showed us his best behaviour lately. No more crying during bed time now.  No more fussing about going out of the room despite being not sleepy. He understand when it’s dark outside, he needs to sleep. Occassionally when he wakes up for his night feed (around 5am lately) he doesn’t fuss to go out of the room anymore because he knows when it’s still dark it literally means oi-oi time. If he’s still awake after his milk, he knows how to sleep on his own. Once in a while he will call on mommy or daddy and wanted us to talk to him but we just have to ignore him and slowly he’ll doze off to sleep by himself. When Ryan wakes up in the morning, first thing he will do is to look out the window and scream “Mommy got sun, wake up. Can play!” He is sure happy to see the sun. 

When we pass by the guard house, Ryan will salute to the guards without fail. He will ask mommy to wind down the window so he could do his salutation. Once he’s done, he will say “Good Job” to himself.

Ryan’s fingers training are getting better. He’s able to hold a pencil the right way (left handed), able to draw circles and follow dotted lines to draw alphabets and numbers without assistance. Although sometimes the drawings are still not perfect, ie not a perfect round, neither perfect squares and the lines he drew were out of dots especially the difficult alphabets but he’s showing remarkable improvement comparing to last month when his patience was at bottom low.

He’s able to tell our mood by looking at our facial expressions. When I show him an angry look. He will say ‘Mommy, angry face’ while pointing to my face. When I pretend cry, he will show a panicked face, come forward to stroke my hair (he will say ‘sayang mommy’), kiss my cheek/forehead and give me a big hug and say ‘sorry mommy’. (Hehee.. how to be angry). 

I like to hear this…  “Ryan, you sayang mommy or sayang daddy”. His default answer is “Mommy!”. Then I’ll ask again. “Ryan, you sayang daddy or kakak”. His reply “Mommy!”. Ngek ngek ngek.. I am sure a happy mommy. He sure knows how to bodek (malay: please) his mommy.

When we ask Ryan a question that requires him to make a decision, his answer will surely starts with the words ‘how about…..’. Eg. ‘Ryan, which one do you want?’, his answer would be “How about this one?” or “Ryan, do you want to draw?”, he will reply “How about play games”

In terms of speech development. Ryan still speaks in baby soft but squeaky tone. His stuttering has descreased dramatically. I am so relieved. We are now able to hold a decent conversation with him and he is able to reply sensibly using his own digestion and understanding of the question we ask him.

Ryan is half toilet trained. He hasn’t had any poo poo accidents in the last 4 months. He is able to tell us when he needs bowel movement and able to hold it until he is fully seated on his booster seat on the adult WC. Will have to start his wee wee training soon.

Ryan is a picky eater. Still not eating table food. No preference with fruits. When he sees us eating chocolate, cookies, biscuits so forth, he’ll say we are eating ‘junk food’. 

The highlight of the month was definitely of what happened during the Father’s Day celebration. We were at a restaurant and I reminded Ryan to say ‘Happy Yeh Yeh Day’. He didn’t say the sentence I taught him, instead he said “YEHYEH, I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!” . YehYeh was beaming throughout the dinner. So did we. :D

That’s all about Ryan @ 26 months


One of the rare occassions he used his right hand to draw
