So Tobias is now officially 2 years old!! WoW! Still can’t believe we’ve had him for 2 year now! Time flies!! There are times i look at him & wished that he was a baby again but then there are times when i look at him & think he’s prefect just the way he is now – sigh!
So what did we do for his birthday? This year it was a small affair with just a close friend from church, Narinda & her 2 little gals, together with his Godparents (the ones in Switzerland) Ian & Jill. It was a no stress party for mummy & daddy in terms of preparations so that was great! We had a simple meal of Greek Salad & Spaghetti & of cos the world’s cutest birthday cake, made proudly by Jill!
Here’s a pic of the wonderful cake:
Here’s a pic of the kids getting at the presents:
So it’s time again for the stats update.
We went to the Mutterberatung on Friday so here’s what was recorded this time:
Tobias, at 23months 22days, measured 90cm tall, weighed 13.7kg & is in the 75% for his age in terms of height & weight.
Everyone has been telling us that we must remember to measure at 2years so we would know his final height – it’s supposed to be (Height at 2years X 2 = Final Height). So this makes Tobi’s final height at 180cm – we’ll have to wait another 16years at least to find out if this is true – so stay tuned
i think that Tobias has ingrowing toenails – it runs on my side of the family, both myself & my bro have it. Tobi hates to get his toenails trimmed, he cries. He’s really good about the fingernails – he’ll put his hand out & watch me trim them. But toenails!! no way!!! He now has a little hard patch of skin just below the corner of the right side of his left big toe – it seems to be growing (has been there for a couple of weeks now). The nurse said we should keep an eye on it, if it gets painful or red or grows fast, we need to go to the doc – otherwise she thinks it might go away on its own – she has no idea what it is exactly – mainly cos Tobi refused to let her have a good look & she didn’t want him crying so didn’t force the issue. Let’s pray that all is well & trimming his toenails will get easier.
Here’s a pic of cool boy with his cool daddy:
We are both waiting for Walt to get back tomorrow morning.
We have began preparations for potty training. Not really potty training yet – just intorducing Tobias to the idea of going to the toilet & using his toilet seat (potty).
Here’s some pics of the preparations:
Here Tobias is trying on his “Big Boy Pants”
Here Tobias is sitting on his “potty”, with his pants on, just to get used to the idea of sitting there.
Doesn’t he look cute in his underwear & sitting on the toilet?? hehehee
When we started this on Thursday, Tobias was really excited & we were really excited too. Within a couple of hours, he was quite happy to sit without his pants & diapers on. But i think we pushed too hard – wanted him to sit too long, trying to wait for something to come out – he got scared. So now we are back to just getting used to the idea of the “potty”.
i just pray i have the patience to see this through.
