How Much is Enough
I don't worry about him gaining a lot of weight because looking at his baby photos and earlier years, he was actually more meaty. But sometimes, he would tell me he had enough to eat without finishing his dinner. Am I giving him more than he can have? How much is enough. It could mean sometimes that he is just wanting is dessert early.
What’s a healthy weight? After the age of six months, plotting children’s weight and height in the health record book provided with their birth can give parents a fair idea of how their growth is tracking, says Dietitians Association of Australia spokeswoman Kate Di Prima. “If they are gaining weight proportionately, this is a healthy sign,” Di Prima says. She says if at six months your child is on, say, the 25th percentile line (that is, weighing under the average) and continues to track along this line, it is likely your child is gaining weight proportionately. “If parents are concerned, they could also check their child’s BMI and discuss it with a dietitian or their doctor or health nurse.” For older kids, she says clothes size is a good indication of their weight. “If they’re eight years old and the height of an eight-year old but wearing size 12, this could flag an issue with weight. Again, talk about this with the appropriate health professional.”
Now, on the off-topic.. and very much so.. have you been to a cigar store?

Melting
We are melting these days. The mercury is just rising. Callipo is the favourite cooler. One day, the Tatapilla ate 6 of them - what's left in the box. I was not impressed but I thought, it was funny. He must have been really hot or he didn't eat anything other than them. I'd like to put him on a medical exam table.. no just to interrogate him but I chose my battle. No use crying over eaten callipo.
You're Sweet Because You're Innocent
You may have been hurt many times before, but you don't carry it with you in life.
You still fundamentally expect people to be good, and you give them the benefit of the doubt.

You're innocent, but you're not naive. You know who could harm you, and you stay away accordingly.
Whenever you can, you open your heart up to possibilities. Life is so much richer that way.

Why can't I shave?
He saw me one evening using a razor in the shower then asked, why can't I shave. I explained that he hasn't got hair that require shaving. But I have hair, he replied showing to me his miniscule hair. I said, they're baby hair.. not adult hair. One night, he was screaming in the bathroom and crying. He had scratches-like wound on both of his legs. He fibbed to me saying that he tripped. I believed him and gave comfort. He let he cat out of the bag the next day by confessing that he didn't trip but shave himself instead. My reaction was torn of course. First, he fibbed and then.. what?! Shaved. Lesson learned, I reckon. I wouldn't need monitor cart to see if he's going to shave again.

The making of a beautiful little boy to a BIG GUY that will melt a million hearts. :)
Tatapilla?

...a new word created by Dad (and Mum) to describe their BIG GUY who moves backward with his head when lying on his back - sort of like a caterpillar. Photobucket
