All about Lil I turning 4 years old..



turning 4 may seem easy for some. But turning 4 is a big deal to me and my lil L. I felt that he grew alot this year, not just in physical growth but in other aspects of development as well such as cognitive and social.

There was a moment I was worried he was slow. Read: delayed development. Cos he took so long to reach the milestones meant for his age. Then suddenly our Lil I decided to have a growth spurt.. Then it also took me a while to realized that I was placing such high expectations of him that I lost focus. But now that I have shifted my focus to him celebrating his milestones and achievement, things seem to have a little change. He grew and he bloomed. Indeed a watched bloomer don't bloom. Just be supportive and he he will thrive.

Here are his recent achievements..
  1. writes some alphabets of his name
  2. can sight read some words
  3. using scissors with one hand and cut a straight line, sometimes curve 
  4. hugs and worry about younger or crying baby
  5. dress and undress independently
  6. full toilet trained even at night - except for poo in the diaper still
  7. talks logic such as understand weather and why things can't be done at times, argue at times and even demanding for things 
  8. better control in temperament. Understands  responsibility i.e. near consequence if he misbehaves
What a long list right? Perhaps this is just another reminder child rearing isn't just about academic expectations. 

What's your expectations of your child?
