While our girl on the whole is still quite well-behaved e.g. never goes into public tantrums, she still hasn’t outgrown the habit of talking to herself, and also in third-person. We’re pretty certain it’s just a growing-up phase, but we’re also getting a little nervous that at past 2.5 years old, she’s still yet to pick up on our reminders to refer to herself as ‘me’ rather than ‘Hannah’.
Ling picked up a thick Usborne sticker book from Kinokuniya for Hannah’s Christmas present, and she’s been pretty hooked onto it. The book is actually low-priced in its original UK retail price of about 10£, but in local stores here it’s SGD25. Ugh. Opportune time to pick up a bundle of those books then. A couple of clicks later at the Book Depository and three books were ordered, arriving in two shipments earlier this week.
Hannah’s an even happier camper now. She goes about the house carrying all three and saying to herself “Hannah has so many sticker books!”
We swung by the construction site of our new place too at the Minton to check out the state of progress. Our third visit to the site, and this visit from the 11th floor of Block 158. Our block (the center one in the picture) has reached its highest floor.
It’s also impossible to tell from the small thumbnail picture below, but when blown up in its original size, we could see that window frames have been installed in the bedrooms.
Ling’s thinking of visiting the showroom again. Apparently, they’ve finished the 2+1 bedroom mockup, and she wants to go in to get more ideas on how our new home in 2013-end should look like. There’s also another new condo project just down the road from The Rivervale with another one of those ridiculous but uniquely Singapore-sounding name – ‘Riversound’ – that she wants to check out too.
It’s Chinese New Year tomorrow too, and opportunities for pictures, celebration and weight-gain. More posts to come. =)
