I got used to reading articles about babies and toddlers. It amazes me how the milestones and developments take place in their everyday lives. What a wonderful experience to see your child develop his or her cognitive, motor, speech, and social skills. We, parents, are always very proud of our children. Of course, we also appreciate them for being good.
According to experts, as babies get into toddler stage, some of them retains the routine of taking naps during the day. Some of them don’t because they refuse to do so. They do not want to miss a thing each day. I guess my toddler is one of them. But there are days that she takes a nap. I am trying to do my best to keep up with our daily routine. She sleeps through the night 10-12 hours straight. But I still want her to take advantage of getting at least 30 minutes nap during the day. I don’t give her chocolate milk drink when it is nap time and after.
Well, if my daughter is really tired from playing and from an outdoor activity she still refuses to take a nap. But on this photo, she gave up. 🙂 Nap time wins today!
So sleepy…gave up 🙂
Baby had a great time Wednesday night for Trick or Treat. This time, she walked with me through our house-to-house visit in the neighborhood. She was talking all the time. She liked the idea of pushing the doorbell or knocking at the neighbor’s door and then saying “Trick or treat.” Everybody said she’s so cute in her Halloween costume as a flower. Well, I’m happy that I was able to find this costume at Walmart.
Unlike last year, we brought a light stick that helped us be seen in the dark. On our way home, my daughter asked me to carry her. When we got home, she began taking inventory of her treats. She’s so cute.
There wasn’t a lot of kids came for trick or treat in our neighborhood. Maybe because the Halloween falls on a weekday. So we still have plenty of candies left. I will just pack them properly in a bag and put in the luggage to take with us on our vacation. The kids back home would be happy. On the other hand, I don’t let my darling daughter eat too much sweets. The first chocolates she tried were M&Ms. And she looks for them once in a while. Now that she saw some lollipops, she’ll ask for them too for sure.
