2.5 Years Old Today!

5 Feb

I have hit many milestones since I turned 2, but the big one is that I am officially talking! I comprehend English, Tagalog and Japanese, but I am showing a preference for English when I speak. I am mainly babbling to myself but my vocabulary has more than doubled since August! I like to repeat what I hear but I also spontaneously say things like, “Here you go!” without anyone really teaching me.

For about a month now, I have been going to a wonderful Japanese pre-school in Santa Monica — SMAP Childcare. I love it! If you check out Mama’s flickr photostream, you’re bound to see shots of me at school.

I am growing so fast! I think I’m ready to be a kuya (big brother) to my new cousin who is due to arrive in early March! So far, I have been giving her lots of love and kisses when I see Tita Ging.


  • I am approximately 3 ft. 0.5 in.
  • I weigh 32.6 lbs.
  • I am still a train fanatic.
  • I am still a Pixar Cars fanatic
  • I love to do yoga poses (especially during dance parties).
  • I love to whisper. (Mama thinks this is half-scary, half-cute.)
  • I love to speak in my special baby dinosaur voice.
  • I love to show off my air guitar moves.
  • I love to blow out candles.
  • I am always trying to take off my jacket, pants or socks.  At home, I like to walk around with just a t-shirt and diapers on.
  • I have heart-melting facial expressions before, during and after consuming sweets/special treats.
  • I enjoy making Mama and Papa kiss each other and kiss me.
  • I enjoy singing “A is for Apple” Song by Richard Scarry at bedtime.
  • I can carry a tune. (“Twinkle Twinkle”, “Happy Birthday”, etc.)
  • I can wink.
  • At the beginning of meals, I do the sign of the cross as my いただきます(Let’s eat!) gesture. (I am very well-trained by Lola and Lolo.)
