little things about him

i will be reading and remembering these things 5, 10, 20.... years down the road:

 his current favorite book is richard scarry's best word book ever.  last night, as usual, we read books before bed time....  he loves the book so much that he refused to let go of the book even when all the lights were off and his eyes were almost closed....  he hugged the book, very tight, with his two little hands.  i tried to take the book away when he finally dozed off but he was still grabbing the book tight.

and why this is his favorite book?  very simple, there were lots of cars cars cars cars cars in it!!

and why i bought this book?  simply because it brought back fond childhood memories.  one of my favorite books was a richard scarry one, an activity book which was thick like a dictionary.  i remember sitting on the highchair by myself, happily reading, coloring, drawing away.

 yesterday, he surprised us by picking up a tiny little piece of "dirt" (actually a tiny ball of wool which fell off from one of our tops) from the floor and walked to his room, opened the lid of the garbage bin and threw the "dirt" in it.  repeated the same sequence when he found another tiny little piece of "dirt".  he must have picked this up from us.  amazing how tiny people learned things quick!  we must watch out for our own behaviors as before we knew it, we will be seeing these tiny people doing the same!

 he loves bubbles time

 for two things, i am 200% sure he got me in him.  for one, he loves bread.  he goes crazy and shouts "bao bao bao bao" when he sees bread, or even the sound of the plastic bag holding the bread.  i can see him living on bread, just like me.  for two, he loves music.  as soon as he hears music, he grins and starts dancing away.  his favorite one is still twinkle twinkle little star.  when he holds up his hands, opens and closes them non-stop, we know it's time for twinkle twinkle little star again.

 as much as i tried, his favorite person is still daddy.  he cries in such excitement when somotu comes home.... "ba ba ba ba" "ba ba ba ba".  yes, i admit i am a bit jealous.  

 he also got somotu in him, maybe 300%.  he is crazy about cars.  sometimes the first thing he says when he wakes up in the morning is "carrrrrrr".

 don't know why, but the word he can pronounce the best so far is TURTLE.  i love the "r" sound he makes.

 he is excited about things moving in the sky.  like birdies, airplanes, helicopters......  he will put his hands out and up and start flying away.

the other day, he saw his grandma crying over the memories of my grandma.  i realized it is the first time ever he saw a person crying.  he stood still for a minute, then walked up to his grandma and looked at her in the most gentle and caring way i have ever seen of him.  my mother later told me there were tears in his eyes.... she felt that he understood her feelings....

he was a bit scared when he saw all the chicken pox and redness on my face....  and i couldn't help but felt sour and sad
