Growing Up

getting upgraded to first class

Ollie’s had a good run of full-on attention from family and relatives for two years..till QT’s came along. Up till then, Donald and I always saw Ollie as the baby of the family.

Until QT came along. Funny how the arrival of a sibling put things in a different light. Ollie looked taller, spoke so much clearer and in somewhat toddler-ish complete sentences, and most of all, he adored his younger brother.

I stepped into Ollie’s room earlier and watched him sleep for a couple of minutes. This little monster of mine has grown up. More than I would like to admit. He is almost able to fall asleep on his own in his bed even though co-sleeping is still an option for him. He has been trying so hard to put own clothes by himself. He has learnt how to negotiate for more cookies, biscuits and nuts. But he accepts that sometimes the answer may be “no” although there may be some short lived yelling.

The monster has grown a lot over the past couple of weeks. Daddy Ting is obviously very proud of his son. heheh.

Well, so am I. So am I.
