Leon is turning 4 this coming March and I'm proud to say that in spite his age, he already knows to tidy his stuff, I can see the start of an OC person in him...not really sure though if this will turn out okay when he's grown up...What makes me very proud lately is the fact that he is able to do chores on his own initiative. On his third straight day today, he sweeps our front yard. He does this every morning after leading Daddy off to work. And he's having fun doing it. Such an OC guys because even the smallest piece of rubbish will not slip his sweeping ability. We never forced him to do the chore, he's doing it on his own will. One day he just went out, got the broom and dustpan and started sweeping. Leon also is now patient with his sister Maia, he likes caring for her, such as the simple gesture of holding his sister's feeding bottle while Maia's drinking her milk.
Maia on the other hand is already in the stage that she realizes the use of her extremities, she already holds her own feeding bottle and knows how to clap her hands. She's has learned to stand on her own and is now learning to walk. One great achievement of Maia is that she already can say mamam and dada...that's me and Daddy! plus she also knows how to kiss Mommy already when instructed to do so. Isn't that heartwarming? :)
As for me, I've started segregating our old stuff --- clothes, shoes and toys --- and was able to donate a few already. There's still plenty to do since my main goal is for us to have enough storage space for the new ones.
