He is 21 months now alhamdulillah 🙂 He is getting cheekier and cleverer by the day. His love for cars and transportation only grew and grew with him. He can now memorise almost all the vehicles in his big Machines book. He loves this video from Youtube, Mizyaka Dizyaka production where it shows how tugboats, excavator, fire trucks etc are assembled and he can just watch those all day if I let him. He also starting to love watching Bob the Builder.
His natural temperament is really starting to show too. He has a low movement quality – which means he is has an element of Type 4 (earth) for sure like his dad. But I also notice that he has quite an intensity about him that made me think he is perhaps has an element of Type 3 (fire). So he is either Type 3/4 or Type 4/3. But I am not going to really label him anything and just keep observing and learning about his nature and try to do my best to parent him in a way that honours his true nature. And I guess that is a lifelong process 🙂
What else, hmm, his skin condition is also improving a lot alhamdulillah! He used to have this red rashes around his neck that can flare up and itches. After many, many attempts at figuring out what is the cause, I think it is actually caused by me :(. I always had a problem with my gut and digestion and I think that sometimes the problem is passed to him through my breastmilk. So I had to cut down my gluten intake. I also gave him an Epsom salt bath a few times a week and I really saw huge improvements.
He is also starting to demand and request things to eat now. He used to just gobble down all that I prepared for him now he wants to have his say. So mummy really has to brush up on mummy’s negotiation techniques now 😉
I love you my big boy of 21 months. May Allah protect you always ameen. Uhibbukafillah 🙂
