Hello! Troublesome Three!

Our boy turned three a couple of days ago. He's been very troublesome indeed.

Don't know what a troublesome three toddler is like?
Here are the behaviours:
1) Cries (most of the time crocodile tears)  or just go "AHHHHHH!" when you don't give in to his demands.
2) Understands you but pretends not to. *rolls eyes*
3) Fickle minded on what he wants. Really.. HOW CAN A THREE YEAR OLD BE SO FICKLE!!!???
4) Answers the total opposite when you ask him questions. (We know that he knows the correct answer, he just like being cheeky.)
5) Refuse to have anyone else carry him/do things for him besides Mummy (if you have a girl, it would be Daddy. but some boys are clingy to Daddy and vice versa.)
6) Ask A LOT of questions like "What happen Mummy?", "What are we going to do??" , "Who is that?" , "What is this?" , "What is that?", "Where is Dada? (5 times a day but when Dada is home, he chooses Mummy. *faint*)"
7) Clingy..
8) Clingy..

Of course, I'm very happy that he's superbly clingy to me but sometimes it's just too much. Parents with clingy children will get what I mean.

Nevertheless, he's still an adorable cheeky monster.
He does fake laughs now, which is very adorable and he'll say "It's SO VERY FUNNY! Hahaha.."
He loves to dance. The way he moves his body is just soooo fun to watch! Too cute!

Also love to play pretend which is very interesting because when I play along, I'm sometimes in "Green Land" and then "Red Land" and then "Black Land" and then "White Land".
We also have to be very careful of the "crocodiles" when we walk and we'll always see Green coloured Tigers and Horses wherever we go.
His imagination keeps us entertained.

On his birthday, I asked him, "How old are you today, James?" (He does know how to answer "3 years old!") but..
He answered.. "ONE!!!!"
*cheeky cheeky cheeky*

Hubby and I are very thankful to have been blessed with this cheeky young one. He does reminds us that we don't have to take everything too seriously. Just give it a laugh and say "It's so very funny!". Hahaha..
One happy family!
..praying for more members to be added to our lil family. :)

Day 3 - What do we see at the Zoo?

My son loves going to the Zoo. So we decided to make a trip down to Singapore Zoo.  It's not his first trip to Zoos. We brought him to the Zoo in Melbourne last year and  Zoo Negara a few months ago.

Again, I took a lot of photos but I won't load all of it here. So here are some of the photos...

Was trying to get my son to pose... but ya.. he refuse to and Hubby had to ask him to say "SURPRISE!" but my son still didn't want to. =.=

First up!
The Otters!
They are so adorable and smelly. LOL!
Well, we read that they use their urine and stools to mark their territory, that's why their "house" stinks. :O

The White Tiger!
and healthy looking!
There were two of them.. roaming around the water and when they came out from the water.. 

we went.. :OOOOOO

Then we went to see the Hippo.
My son was more fascinated by the fishes. -_-

Elephants having some fun time in the water.

Elephant ride!
My son didn't dare to go on it.. so we didn't too. 

We went to watch a show which was a story about saving the Rain Forest.
Near to the end of the show, they brought out a snake.
My son then quickly asked to go nearer to the stage.
Immediately I said "EEEEYER.. mummy wait for you all here.. you and Dada can go in front."
I hate snakes!

Spot my hubby and son??

There they are!
Look for the red circle.
(Sorry, should have thicken the red circle.)

After the show..
We saw some elephants taking a walk. 
So adorable the way they hold "tails". 

My son was looking for Sea Lions. 
So we went around looking for them but we could only hear them...
We saw the penguins.

Walked around more and my son shouted..

Ok.. not the real ones. :P

Our boy really enjoys the Zoo..
He even hugged Ah Meng.

Here's the Leopard. 
My son went.. "Shhhh! Be quiet.. he's sleeping."

The giraffes being fed by visitors.

And my boy wanted to take photo with the zebras but he refused to pose properly..
Jadi la.. like that.. -_-

We spent about 7 hours in the Zoo and got sooooo tired..
So we decided to take the tram back to the exit.

Both adults and kiddo had a great time. We admired how clean the environment was and how well fed and kept the animals were. For my son, it's more of a memorable childhood because every child loves animals. :)

Oh... our boy is also very fascinated by maps and signboards. I really have no idea why. He can stand there for a few minutes admiring it. That's probably why he likes to go to Zoos too, cause there's so many of them around. :P
