I started potty training during the last week of June, whilst at home for the one week school break before Summer Camp starts. It was a challenge, as previously, I wasn't ready for potty training at all. I was even denying that I had poo-ed when Mummy could obviously detect a foul smell. However, there was one time when Mummy had brought me to KFC to buy dinner and on the way, we passed by a rubbish truck and Mummy told me to run as fast as I can coz it was smelly. Since that day, I started understanding the concept of dirty and smelly. So when Mummy started potty training for me, 婆婆 always told me if I don't tell her or Mummy when I poo-ed or pee-ed, I will have to go to the rubbish truck. So I got "scared". Now every time I successfully poo-ed or peed-ed in my little toilet, I always tell them I don't need to go to the rubbish truck. It's been almost a month now and when I go out, although I still put on diapers (just in case), I have been able to keep the diapers dry as I would tell Mummy whenever I need to go to the toilet. In fact, on our flight back from Shanghai to Singapore, I was able to keep my diapers dry, even when Mummy told me to pee in my diapers as we were almost touching down and was inconvenient to bring me to the toilet, I actually endured until we touched down at the airport. Mummy is so proud of me!!!

Mummy chanced past a coach giving roller blading lessons at our development. Out of curiosity, she decided to ask the coach if I am eligible. The coach said definitely, in fact, I am the best candidate, given my "no-fear" and low CG. So Mummy went onto Taobao and bought me a set of roller blading gear and I got started immediately.
Here's me at his first lesson on June 6, 2010. Starting to get used to "walking" with wheels. Trying out my balance on the grass first.
Second lesson on June 14, 2010. I simply refused to put on the helmet (as many would know I hate to wear caps too...) So Mummy just had to let me have my way. I can already start to blade a bit on the ground.

For some reason, Shannon seems to be very tickled at the switching on and off of the lights in Mummy's bedroom. I have now grown tall enough to reach the light switches and always play with them nowadays. Whenever I turn off and on the lights, Shannon will start screaming and I follow suit. So now, it then became a famous nightly affair where I call it the "Ah Ah Ah" Session.... Check out the fun we are having... screaming at the top of our voices... Mummy is glad she has not received any complaints so far... Hahaha...

It was Shannon's first swimming session at 10 months, whereas Mummy started bringing me swimming at 6 months. Mummy has been delaying this since Shannon has been falling sick during the winter months and only until very recently did the weather really turned warmer and Mummy then felt it was the right time to bring Shannon to the pool. Shannon's funny, she actually fell asleep in the pool. She must have thought this is some kind of water therapy... hahaha.... Whereas for me, I haven't swam for a while since the winter and I finally learnt how to swim with the float on...

Today marks the end of school term as Happy Kids held a fun fair in school for the kids and the parents, even though school doesn't officially end until end of June. Check out some of the activities we had in school today... Mummy has registered me at the Shanghai Singapore International School (SSIS). So once summer holidays end, I will start nursery at SSIS. Much as Mummy likes Happy Kids and Teacher Connie, she felt that she has to let me get back to the Singapore system, since eventually we will return to Singapore. Nevertheless, Mummy was happy with my developments at Happy Kids over the last year. Happy Kids is a Montessori styled school that engages in activities like cooking, gardening etc to help kids like myself learn. I often bring home cookies that I baked myself. Of course, I also learnt to climb the playground and ride the tricycle here.

As the date of the posts will tell, Mummy has been so busy at work lately. In fact, for the whole month, both Shannon and me haven't seen Mummy much, since we are usually already asleep by the time she gets back. She probably only got to see us two for a short while in the morning...

Mummy has been wanting to take down photos of our garden in the four seasons as a remembrance of the four seasons in Shanghai. But for some reason, we've staying here for fours years now and we never took down that memory. So here it is... The Spring Look... With the flowers blooming and the nice green shoots... And of course, this year we have our own Spring-filled Shannon... Hahaha....

Mummy has been wondering why I keep getting bruises on my legs, especially since I am at school most of the time. Now she understands. With such naughty stunts at the playground (there is a nice playground in school too), that explains all the bruises...
