18 months

Ok, so I confess that this video wasn't taken today. It was taken last month, when Ryan was in the Julia Gabriel June holiday programme. I brought him to my office after class one day and he entertained himself while waiting for me. I took the video on my phone and every so often I play it and it always makes me smile.

Ryan is 18 months today, a point where many parents stop and take stock of their baby's development, eg. how many words they can speak, how many hairs are on their head, how many teeth they have, how high they can jump, etc. I thought of doing the same but I found it hard to fill out the "report card". Not because Ryan hasn't been doing well, in fact he's been doing very well. No longer a baby, he enjoys asserting his independence in many ways and he's also been showing more of his personality. I guess it's hard for me to list out his developmental achievements because I don't usually dwell on what he can or can't do. Perhaps Richard and I are lazy parents, perhaps we are ignorant, I don't know. What I do know is that, at the end of the day, what matters is this face right here.

Happy 18 months my darling.

Time flies, Ryan is 18 months liao. I still remember that day when he and Matt were taking part in the swimming competition.
