Christopher was tired out. He had been up since 7 am. And mummy who was really teary eyed due to lack of sleep decided to take the short cut and plop him in front of the TV with Fun Song Factory while she went about her business of cooking, boiling barley, making breakfast and getting ready for church, all in the slowest motion possible.
At church, mummy was on ushering duty and daddy was nursing a sprain ankle, so WY helped carry Christopher who was almost going to sleep by then.
Worship ended, congregation clapped.
Up goes Christopher from the crook oh WY's hand, blurry eyed (very much like mummy earlier) and clap!clap!clap! he went. Nothing much happening, snuggle he went back to sleep.
Then there was the introduction of new comers some 10 minutes later. Congregation clapped.

You bet, it created quite a roar from the people sitting behind and beside my son. Want to get invovled, want to clap hand. People clap, I also want to clap. But I am sleepy too....zzzz....
Christopher LOVES sitting with daddy at the steering wheel. I know I shouldn;t have indulged in this lack of safety luxury, but we are only allowing him to do it when daddy is in PARK.
So, saturday night and we were on our way back from Puchong. He was a wee bit cranky at 11 pm and wanted his way at the steering wheel. But "NO! Mummy says only when the car has stopped. Now daddy is driving you have to sit quietly, boy!" Crying and arching and tantrums....but after some 5 minutes of telling him repeatedly, he quitened down and accepted his fate!
Snuggled down and decided to nap instead. So, happy were we driving home.
Daddy reached home and parked the car!
POOF, his eyes shot open and ZOOM he made a bee line for the driver's seat! And what a cheeky grin he gave me sitting in his daddy's lap moving teh steering wheel. It didn't help that daddy went "brroommmm....vrroommmmm" and moved the sterring wheel too. So it was a good 10 minutes of fun behind the wheel for him.
"Like that also fun ah?"
But daddy is secretly proud of his son I reckon....coz whenever he wants to go over to sit at the driver's seat, he will distinctively call out "Daddeee....". And what more of a boy can you make of it when he loves to sit with his daddy at the driver's seat and play preted with him.
"Like that also can..."
On a mummy proud note, Christopher has started babbling words. It was a "ooohhh" and "aaahhh" and "wwaaaahhh" previously, but now he does try to say a few words.
1) ights (lights)
2) dy bear (teddy bear)
3) ar (star)
4) ound, ound den (round and round the garden)
He also tries singing twinkle, twinkle little star and round and round the garden. And he does actions quite perfectly.
He had to perform on Sunday evening at my inlaws place.
Pat your head.
Where is your shoulders?
Hop little bunny.
....and loads more....
I am not a performing mum, so he was left alone in his little performances with me nagging "Hai, don't make him perform like that lah!" on deaf ears.
(some pics to come soon.)
