He surprised us!

Ooh.... I gotto jot this down before my memory go haywire again. I know, normally I'll post funny things about what Jayden did and seldom praise him (Bad mother- I know!). So, many of you guys know that Jayden is still slacking in terms of speech and my neck is getting longer just waiting for him to have a conversation with me. He speaks very limited short sentences for example " I want "something". And sometimes he even say "I want MMai (Don't want in hokkien -don't know who taught him)" *slap forehead*. But this one, I gotto say he really stunned us including my confinement lady.

During my confinement, I can say I kinda neglected Jayden. The poor boy gotto play and entertain himself until his dadidi comes home from work. One night, while we're watching tv in the living room, he ran out with the brand new flip cards that I just received from MTAB and asked for me to open it for him . And so I did and he got so impatient, he tried to grab it for me and the cards fell on the floor. Of course he got scolded la.....So while I was nagging him, suddenly he just point at a card and said TIGER.

And I looked at the card that he was pointing at and true enough it was written T-I-G-E-R with no pictures. At that moment I thought to myself  "Sure or not??Only alphabets also can read?" so I took another card and he said "ELEPHANT". And I flip a few more and he really can read/recognise some of the words. Then he ran into the room and showed his dadidi and he came out with a few more cards that his dad had just taught him and told me EYE, EAR and WAVE.
I guess that is like a complimentary happiness for me. :) Cannot speak long sentences but can read. Maybe he can join join the words and make a longer sentence and talk to me? It'll be so nice..........*dreaming*

(dream a bit only cannot meh?)

  4. sasha,
    Lil J is smart lah! Normally kids can just talk but couldn't read by looking at words. Lil J is the other way round which is smart! Teach more single words to him. I think that will help him to say longer sentences. :)

    Sasha, first day working from home. Hope you're doing fine!:)

  31. He's a smart boy for sure, just that maybe the sentence part will come a bit later.

    My niece who is already 3 plus years old, can only speak a few words.
