Bunny Gal is no longer be classified as “Infant”  as she has officially hitting the Terrible 2 on last Friday.

In fact, she has already acting as one since few weeks ago! She started off with the following :

  1. Refuse to take bath by keeping saying “No”
  2. Refuse to get up from the bathtub
  3. Refuse to change diapers/clothes
  4. Refuse to get onto the stroller
  5. Sudden addiction to pacifier
  6. Spilling out food after a few chews
  7. Throwing things/toys on the floor when she throws tantrum

This oppositional behaviors got worse during our Europe trip. Since we have been quite lenient to her throughout the trip and gave in to some of her “unreasonable” demand/request with the fear that she may go out of control in foreign land PLUS she was down with E. Coli virus for a few days.

Other than the oppositional behaviors, Bunny Gal also pick up some good habits such as follows:

  1. Keep her toys after she is done with it but we must remind her to do so at time.
  2. Return and arrange the items she took from the display shelve in the toy shop after she checked it out and never demand us to buy for her.
  3. Say “please” when she needs our help
  4. Share her toys with others
  5. Demand to wash and wipe her hand whenever it’s dirty
  6. Pick up rubbish and say “dirty” then pass it to us for disposal
  7. Cover her mouth when she sneezes – but most of the time she only remember doing so after she has sneezed

Last but the MOST important change in Bunny Gal’s  life is that she fall in love with Barney – the purple dino! She is deeply, madly truly in love with him. She can watch the same Barney show repeatingly without getting bored. She sings and dance along. She learns new words, numbers, action, counting, etc from the show more than from Bunny Mum. She sleeps with Barneys (yes, it’s more than ONE). She even brought one of her Barneys to Europe – what a lucky dino! And how can Bunny Mum forgets that Bunny Gal called “Barney” first before she starts calling Bunny Mum “Mummy”!!!!! Barney comes 1st and everything else come after Barney.

 

I have stopped blogging since February as I was very quite ill since end February and was hospitalized twice to fix my heart. During my stay in the hospital, I finally decided that it’s time to leave my “baby” (nope, not Bunny Gal) behind and move on since there has been too much emotional baggage for me to stay on. And yes, for greener pasture too! It is never an easy decision given that I have put up the whole place “brick- by-brick” and spent my good 6 years there.

I spent 3 out of 4 weeks of March on medical leaves and the entire month of April to handover. Finally I stepped out on 9 May 2011 and flew off to Europe the next day together with the entire Bunny family for a good 3 weeks.

Stay tune and I will update more on the trip plus Bunny Gal’s latest development.
