3 years, 2 months

I meant to write this post back in April around Eggy's birthday but I've been a little busy, haha.  I've totally forgotten how tiring it can be taking care of a newborn.  Actually, to be honest, the newborn stage sucks.  Especially since I think Bacon has colic.  Yuck.  I know I'm supposed to enjoy it because "they grow up so fast" and "he'll only be this little for so long" but I would rather just fast forward to at least six months.  I just remember very specifically thinking when Eggy was maybe 6 or 8 months old how much fun she was.  Don't get me wrong; I'm not saying I didn't love her or enjoy being with her.  It just got more fun as she got older.  Eggy's newborn stage is all so hazy to me (That's got to be some biological voodoo because why else would people subject themselves to this craziness and have more than one kid.) so I thought I should try to record some of the stuff she's doing at this age.  Because don't you know?  They grow up way too fast.
  • She knows how to spell her first name.  She can also write the first letters of her first and last name.  And the letter O but that's because it's a circle.  
  • She knows her address.
  • She can count to 20, sort of.  She gets confused after 12:  ten, eleven, twelve, eleventeen, fourteen, sixteen....
  • Her favorite color is orange.
  • She's starting to learn her phonics.  I don't know if she totally gets it but if I ask her what letter does popcorn start with for example and I say, "puh, puh, puh, popcorn" she'll say P.  
  • She can ride her tricycle.  She used to get frustrated because she couldn't pedal that well or she'd be scared of falling but she's doing really well now.  She even asked her dad for a bike.   
  • At her check up in April, she weighed 29 pounds, 6.4 ounces and measured 38 inches tall.  I think she's grown since then.  She's still pretty skinny though because she can still fit in a lot of her summer clothes from last year.  They're just a little bit shorter. 
  • She still wears a pull-up at night even though she has no problems during the day.  
  • She can open doors now.  In the morning, she comes running into our room even though we tell her she has to stay in her bed/room until her alarm clock turns green.
  • She knows that she's three years old but she also knows that when we go to Disneyland, she's two still (if they ask).  ;)  So now when people ask her her age, she looks at me to see what number she's supposed to say.  
  • She understands almost everything my mom says to her in Korean even though she doesn't really speak it herself.  She'll even watch cartoons in Korean, like Pororo or Robocar Poli.  And she knows a few songs in Korean but I think she's just repeating my mom phonetically, not really understanding the words.  I think she'd be better off if she knew how to speak Mandarin but Eggy appah only knows Cantonese.  I should send her to a Chinese school but then she'd hardly ever get to speak/hear the language outside of school.  
  • When she poops, she pinches her nose.  Whenever she smells anything bad, she pinches her nose and yells, "Stinky!"  If she farts, she yells, "Stinky!" and runs away.  Sometimes, she'll grab a book and try to fan it away. 
Stinky fertilizer
  • Since she'd be seeing Bacon's bits during diaper changes, we told her about how boys have a penis and girls have a vagina (did you totally just think of Kindergarten Cop right now?).  She calls it a "magina."  One time we were at Ikea and she told her dad that he has a penis.  Really loudly.  
  • She refuses to cut her hair.  I don't know why.  She came along when I went to get my hair cut a few months ago and she let my stylist cut some bangs.  Then, he couldn't help himself and cut a few layers in the front and curled it too.  haha
  • She's still a really good eater.  Really really good.  I mean she likes sweets and other junk food too but like if you gave her a plate of french fries and bell peppers, she'd eat both equally.  Let's hope it stays that way.
  • She's always singing some random song and I don't know if it's from some show she watched or if she totally made it up.  Also, she knows how to rhyme words.  She gets a big kick out of all those "See you later, alligator.  In a while, crocodile." sayings.  And she loves to sing The Name Game song.  
  • You know how kids are always asking why, why why?  Eggy asks, "How come?"  I didn't realize it until my sister pointed it out but that's what I say.  So it's always "How come?"  So annoying.  I don't mind her asking something if she really wants to know but sometimes she doesn't even listen to the answer.  She just keeps repeating "How come?" Or sometimes the question doesn't even make sense.  
  • She also talks a lot.  A LOT.  All the time.  Sometimes, she even talks in her sleep.  And just like singing, I don't know where she learns some of the things she says.  And when she says certain words wrong, I don't always correct her because I think it's cute and funny.  Like when she says she's a little bit "infused" instead of confused.  And of course, when she says magina.  
Anyway, those are just some random things about Eggy right now.  Love my girl.
