Faythe turned 3 years 10 months as of 6th Nov. Can’t imagine in just short of 2 months my lil missy here is turning 4 years old!! I’ve already told her that there won’t be any pig cutting thingy like last year. It’ll be just a simple affair with the family. She remembers very well of her birthday last year and keep telling me “Daddy cut the pig and give everyone to eat.”
I’m giving up keeping track of her vital stats. She doesn’t seem to have put on much weight throughout the whole year, but she seems to be growing taller. She’s around 100cm now.
Dietary: She loves to try new food, but nothing spicy. She loves western food, mainly pizza & pasta. Eats alot but has her mood sometimes she’ll refuse to eat.
We’ve started her on art class as of last month. Went for 3 classes so far and I can see she’s slowly budding into a lil artist. She can draw simple things like doors, windows, ironman (stick man with a heart in the middle), flowers, a whole family of 4 of us, fish, bees, trees, clouds.
I get these comments from her Art Teacher & School Teacher. She expresses herself very well and she talks non stop throughout the class. Sometimes I really can’t stand her babbling ever so often that I gotta ask her to just be quiet for a moment and let me talk. She has her own opinion and sometimes refuse to budge. She’d insist that she wants it that way.
She tells us bout how Vyktore gets bullied in the school and how she becomes the hero and safes the day. By taking back the toys from the naughty boy and give to Vyktore.
Gosh..she must have learned this from me. She nags everyone including Vyktore & our maid. She’d go: “Vyktore, why you don’t want jie jie to do for you? Jie Jie already bring this for you, why you don’t want. Why you like that? You cannot be like that. Afterwards I tell Daddy and Daddy will scold you…”
Hops & Jumps & What Nots
She has mastered the art of hoping with 1 leg. She can walk backwards. Able to paddle her bicycle but she’s lazy. Able to climb herself so high in the park’s apparatus (or whatever you call it) & come down herself. She’s able to jump across small drains, with our assistance (holding her hands).
That’s the favourite colour now. She keeps going around, spotting things in purple and telling me that that’s her fav colour. She even conned MIL into getting her a new pair of Purple Crocs!! (FYI, she already have 2 pairs of Crocs at home, Black & Pink). That explains why I did a purple Scrapbook LO for her .
My Great Helper
She’s my greatest helper at home. She can help me fetch things most of the time, which I’ve given up asking the maid to do. She can also help dress Vyktore up (provided Vyktore doesn’t runaround).
She’s able to sing Mandarin songs. School & myself thought her a few and she can sing them quite well. She can recognise and write some of the alphabets which she likes.
She still likes pants & tops as opposed to dresses. But sometimes she will wear dress/skirt after some mind games with Mommy . She start to love tying hair and putting clips. But she doesn’t like long hair..Thank god for that..I’m pretty worried she will get kutu if she keeps long hair cause she has thick hair and it’s not easy to manage. She likes to match her clothes with the same colours, even up to the level of undies .
She’s the official sweet talker in the family. So sweet that your heart melts when you hear what she says to Daddy especially!! Before Daddy went off this round, she gave him her favourite towel (tweety bird). One which she always use it to put on the pillow when she sleeps. She told Daddy, “When you go back, you must put this next to your pillow and sleep next to it. When you think of me and you will cry, then you can use this towel and wipe your tears“. I guess he must be so heart broken when he hears this.
Seriously, what else would I ask for from a 3 years old. She’s so easy to take care nowadays. She plays by herself. She even pretends to read by herself LOL. And she’s the *tai kuai tau* when it comes to all the dangerous activities at home. I have no problem bringing her out alone. She will either sit in stroller or hang on to me. At least I don’t have to chase her like I do with Vyktore.
