26th Month Update

Changes had been a-bounty. It's quite impossible to update this blog for each change, unless I work on it fulltime and blog everyday. First off, she finally had her ears pierced for her 2nd birthday, had her real earrings for Christmas and lost them last week - barely a month after she had them. Life is great. If losing her earrings will continue at this pace, we will surely need to invest on a gold mine!

Singing still remains her passion I think. Hear her sing at 1 year old, and now at 2 years old.

Louna singing Frere Jacques while arranging the computer table.

Playing has taken a different dimension too. In this picture, she's playing with the Dora house which her Nanny offered to her last Christmas. She's in fact playing her own scenario - Dora doing dodo (sleeping) while Swiper is looking by the window. It's also funny to note that Dora and Boots could sleep together on Dora's bed while Swiper sleeps exclusively on the sofa.

She's playing with shape-picture matching too. Watch the video.

This video is a good example not only of Louna's ability to match shapes but also of how she masters potty time (when she started to stand up and said caca, caca). In fact, when I wrote about her daytime potty habits two months ago, that suddenly changed when we went home to her grandparent's place for a weekend - change of location, change of people - and everything was forgotten when we went back to Dijon.

But now, at 26 months old (it even started earlier), she could go do her potty alone without us asking her all the time. She could remove and pull back her panties alone so all we have to do now is to flush her business in the toilet. In case of poopy business, she of course ask us to wipe her butty but that's all.

She's been catching and repeating a lot of words lately. I've just noticed in fact that she understands everything but would choose the easier word to pronounce. Like she would say shoes instead of chaussures or truck instead of camion. Do I have to say that my daughter is smart or should I accept that she's quite lazy? Lol.

Here's a video of Louna saying tête (head) and suso. Innocently sweet.

Eating habit remains the same, she's still a voracious eater to the point that she starts to worry us. Like she would stay with the adults during apéro (Frenchies drink alcohol and eat chips, sausages and what-have-yous before the meal) while the other kids play. She would eat fast that after her meal, she would start taking from my plate. But she found a trick which I start to appreciate. She wants to eat with her own cutleries (thanks Tita Chona) - look at how she neatly arranged them on the table. Even if I give her real spoon and fork, she would insist on using her own stuffs. Ok, alright (hands up). Now, we practically eat at the same speed. Great!

On to the bad habits now. Yes, kids develop bad habits too. It's balance. It's yin and yang.

Louna has this manner of shrieking out loud when she doesn't agree with us. I mean shrieking to the top of her lungs that it breaks our ear drums! And she would continue till she gets what she wants, or if it's not possible, till she gets to the time-out corner.

Another way of manifesting her anger is to lie down on the floor, or to hit her toys or even us. And now, she starts to bang her head against the wall too.

Poor parents.

Feng, and i forgot to add that she's wearing her shoes alone now.. do you think she's ahead of her age? i was just actually thinking that other kids her age still look babies..

Gail, take your time. there's more exciting phases till you get there ;)

Louna started eating solids at 4 months old.. but her pedia adviced us that if there are cases of food allergies in the family, better wait till 6th month.. which wasn't our case.. she started with homemade carrot purees...check her out here.

Raqgold, hehe, katabi ko na ngang matulog ang cam ko e lol.

I envy how your cutie Louna eats. My boys are just so lazy to open their mouths. How did you do it?

Just talking about banging the head with a friend of mine who has 2 daughters. His second child do the banging thing and even pulls here hair if she does her tantrums So with my sister's daughter, ganun din. Then he asked me if my toddler is doing the same and thank God my kids didn't. Sabi nya, "maybe its a girls thing no? You are full of dramas!"(lol)
