Mouse over the picture for captions.
So, when I mentioned in last month’s entry that we were moving to the smaller entry, I really meant it. Especially since I am writing this so late it is practically April. So let’s stick with the basics.
Food status: still good. However still can’t get him to eat fruits, although I get to sneak vegetables in via fried noodle dishes and spring rolls.
Reading status: Adik is even reading words in other languages now. He can attempt to read his Malaysian flash cards (courtesy of Uncle Zarin, thanks, yo!). And he is very interested in languages, asking about words in different languages and whatnot. He still prefers shorter books over the longer ones. Even though he can read the words he doesn’t want to grasp with plot lines and character development yet. He wants to stick to things that rhyme and whatnot.
Potty training status: same as last month. He will pee pee in the potty chair when reminded but still no #2. We may need to move the potty chair to his favorite #2 spot in the house to encourage him to try using it instead of going in the diaper and complaining afterwards of his “hurty” bum.
Adik takes my solo work trips hard sometimes, and gets upset when we can’t do proper FaceTime. Poor kid. I wish I didn’t have to leave him so much but all in all, he soldiers on and keeps himself busy. It makes me sad when he’s sad. I get a very lovely homecoming when I return and both children are super affectionate. Adik though, seems to be extra loving and this whole year has been hugging me and telling me that he loves me without being prompted. I believe it is his way of trying to persuade me to stay (not that I need any extra persuasion). I am enjoying the attention that I get when I am home, and trying not to get too lonely when I’m on the road without Vin, Yaya and Adik.
OK let’s go to the pictures of Adik taken throughout the month.

Sadly even though Adik loved the packaging (and the ad on television) he did not want to try the actual applesauce in the Go Go Squeez.
