At the end of March, Jude turned 23 months old. Jude got to spend most of the month in Hawaii, where we met my family for a holiday. So he had pretty awesome month.
He was actually very good on the flight over to Hawaii. He’s finally at the age where he is happy to watch non-stop TV instead of running up and down the aisles. He eventually passed out around 2:30am Taipei time and got a little bit of sleep.
Jude loved the kiddie area in the swimming pool but he is no longer the daredevil he used to be as he was afraid of the big pool. It’s very comforting as a Mother to see your son stop at the edge of the pool and wait for your hand before proceeding!
He sure loves Grandma and Grandpa. But something funny that he especially loves about Grandma is her toes! He would ask over and over to see her toes. It was odd and cute all at the same time. Her toes are nicely painted, so I think he enjoys the color and also playing ‘This little piggy’ on them!
Jude was really well behaved in most situations. There were of course moments when he was wild toddler but he didn’t act out that often. I think having so many adults to give him attention certainly helped.
He impressed everyone with how much he loves cars and watching iPad. he could do either for hours! We managed to tear him away from both sometimes and get him to do other activities like baking cupcakes.
Jude is also really into his friends at this age. He would often ask for them on vacation. He will say their name as to ask if we could go see them. On the playground at home he has started calling everyone ‘friend’. Such the charmer.
Toby and Jude got along just fine in Hawaii. There was the odd incident where Jude got a little rough with Toby but nothing too bad. We saw more hugs and attempts at interactive play.
The flight back was rough. Jude was wired and had a really hard time shutting off and falling asleep. By the time we reached Taipei at 6am, he was exhausted. I laid down with both boys on our bed and we watched TV. After a few episodes of Peppa Pig, Jude was like this:
