15 months and 3 weeks

Gideon has been talking so much more lately. He is walking around and finding new toys to play with. Currently, he is copying us when we eat, using a spoon or making a funny "eating" sounds. Last night, he was opening the trashcan and dropping toys inside. Then he would sign for us to take them out and he would do the same thing. He thought it was hilarious.

Taking his weekly picture today was difficult. He just wanted to get down and play. Garrett and I need to find a new way to take his photo. Thank you Auntie Ginger for the awesome Transformers shirt!



Here is a cute video of Gideon with his cup. (I got this cup at an Oktoberfest beer tasting.)

15 months and 2 weeks

We had a busy week since Gideon was sick and not feeling well. He has been getting his molars and his canine teeth. He had a runny nose, a cough and a sad face. We just helped him feel better by holding him and singing songs. He had bags under his eyes and a little rash too. These pictures were taken before his cold.

Our skype date with Grandpa and Grandma Wong was cut short because Gideon would not stop crying. He rarely cries for no reason but we believe he was just not feeling well. After 15 minutes of crying, we were able to go back onto skype to see Grandma and Grandpa Wong. Gideon also gave a wonderful visual for them too. He decided to poop on camera. =)

15 months and 1 week

I am getting confused with counting by the weeks, so I am now onto months and weeks. We had a busy weekend even though it was a three day weekend for Garrett and me. We spent Friday as a family day so we just played, ate and had fun with Gideon. On Saturday, I was single-mom for the day. Garrett flew down to California for Unk's service. Garrett represented the seasons of chan. Gideon and I went to a play area at a mall. We went to the library to pick up new books. We watched college football too!

This past week, I learned why Gideon greets people in a high squeal and a shoulder shrug to the left. When I dropped him off at daycare, the young girls would greet Gideon in the high squeal and Gideon would respond back. It made me laugh. Gideon also learned how to play peek-a-boo with his hands. He would close his eyes and cover his eyes with one hand. Then I tried to teach him to blow a kiss with his hand close to his mouth instead of his eye. We are working on it. Sometime he blows a kiss and other times he just looks at me funny.

Garrett taught Gideon something new too. He noticed that Gideon likes to squat close to the pumpkin that we did not carve for Halloween. Hmm.. I think Garrett should explain this story. Just think squatting and video games.

Gideon was better at his weekly photo op this week. I can't believe how big he is getting. I just bought him new shoes, size 6!

15 months old

Hello family and friends,

Gideon is now 15 months old. I can't believe how fast the time has gone by. Garrett and I were looking at pictures taken a year ago. Wow, Gideon has changed. At his 15 month appointment, we found that his head and length are around the 35th percentile. His weight has increased to the 67th percentile. He is 25 lbs. and 11.5 oz.

He gained five pounds in three months. He loves his food. Currently, his favorite foods are figs, hummus and crackers. He loves fresh and dried figs. I think he likes that they are sweet. I love them because of their dietary fiber. Yes, when he eats figs, he is more regular. Gideon loves to lick off the hummus from the cracker and ask for more.

Gideon is learning how to use a spoon to eat his yogurt and applesauce. These food items cannot stain and I'm ok with the mess, so far. He tries to pick up the applesauce with his fingers. Then he realizes that he can't get anything and so he uses the spoon. I think he still prefers his fingers.

Thank you to the Leung/Pierce cousins for his weekly outfit!




Gideon's Halloween costume. He was Tony the Tiger and Garrett was the cereal box. We used the ball pit as Gideon's bowl of cereal. They're grrreat!
