Jake Turns One!

Dear Jakey,

It's hard to believe that you finally turned one. It certainly felt like you've been around for much longer. Right from your drugless birth to your crawling days, I've always been really amazed at your lovely personality. Cos truly, you are probably the most chilled out baby I've ever met.

These days, however, you have been rather enthusiastic in vocalizing your thoughts. Our lil bubba has found his (very loud) voice. I never knew that you could scream that loudly, other than times when you dun get your way. And you love sucking up… when your daddy comes home, he gets the "DAAA DEE" loud and clear from your lil being. You love to call your Kor Kor too. Mommy, however, doesn't get much love. :(

You, like your brother, have a great love for all things furry. Starting from the lil pup that we have @ home. The two of you would be ganging up on Rustie and go on a massive pat attack. It's beautiful seeing you petting him and telling him to stay and sit (with the right hand signals too!)

You have been a rather resilient baby too. I think becos you are the younger one, we've gotten rather accustomed to the different baby ways (ie; the occasional tantrums) that you've shown. We have been very fortunate to have you as you are certainly a lesser demanding baby. One that does not hold onto too dearly onto material things. You my child, loves cuddles and attention, more than anything else. Although you've recently developed a new love for mobile phones and remote controls!

Lately, it seems like while you are an old hand at crawling, you are now keen to explore the walking route. And so we play walking games now. I would hold your lil chubby hands and then we'll trek down the living room. The downside is that you are getting so wiggly when we go and eat at restaurants… but crawling on restaurant floors are not really acceptable in mommy's books. So it's a constant battle to keep you occupied so that you dun have that thought in your lil head.

The saving grace is the fact that you love to eat. All we have to do is stuff you with whatever that we are eating and you'll be a happy camper
. The two of you are such great chompers that we usually have a separate order for you, which you guys would usually polish off.

Anyway, it is a momentous milestone for you, my dear. In so many ways you are still my baby. I guess being the younger one, there is a tendency to be a lil softer towards you. But you know what, if you ever get too cheeky… I think your older brother will keep you in check. We can't trust Daddy cos he's too soft! Ha!
