Sage and his manners

My little boy, Sage is only 22 months. And as young as he is, Sage is extremely doing well with his manners especially with other people. The basic "thank you, please, and I'm sorry" will come out of his mouth like automatic... And I remember teaching him only a few times, yet it's amazing how it instills in his young mind and knows how to use it the right way, like he really knows what he's doing. The other day he told me "mommy, say sorry" when I dropped a bottle. He knows he's done something wrong when he says, " I'm sorry, I did something! Hahahaha! it's funny but it truly melts my heart. This morning at church, he was at the baby's room because he can't sit still inside the worship hall. The older kids that were there have their crayons and coloring book with them, which was really smart move by their mothers because it made them sit still and quiet. Now, Sage wanted to get one of those crayons from these kids. Fortunately, one of the mothers lent him 3 crayons, that made him calm through out the morning. While he was sitting there coloring, he then said to the woman who gave him the crayons "thank you, people...." hahaha, I can't help it! It was again so cute especially coming out from Sage's mouth. He knows mommy, daddy, his auntie and uncles, his papa and mimi, his grandpa, and great grandma and those who are outside the family, he refers them as "people." That's where Sage's logic was coming from when he said "thank you, people" to that woman at church today. I am so proud of my little angel because he is really learning something. *wink*
I will end this entry with a clip of my husband and my son. I think Sage was about 19 months old in this video. Enjoy!

Beijing Welcomes the World

It was a mind-blowing opening ceremony ever! I don't think I've ever seen anything like that...

China opened the Olympics to the world last night with a spectacular show that the world would never forget. It was the most beautiful, most detailed, and most stunning performance I've ever watched on TV. According to my dad, it justified perfectly the purchase price of that new HD television in their living room. The Friday night show just fit the bill! The Chinese showed the world just the right definition of discipline, perfection, and good coordination. If you have watched the show, you know what I'm talking about... taking in everything from giant scrolls and a representation of the Great Wall formed by thousands of people, to astronauts drifting from the roof of the Bird's Nest stadium. It was also one of those moments where you just sit in your comfy sofa and you'll be like ohh and ahh on the costumes. It was definitely something that's hard to beat by the next Olympic host. Could London do better in 2012?

"The Story Book"

Our little Sage never stop amazes us every single day. It was just last week when i started reading books to him before bedtime. Well, I did try reading with him when he was younger but really paid no attention to it. Now, he is hooked on it and has been asking for a story since then. It's been three nights that Sage asked me to read him stories before he goes to sleep. Three hours ago, my son has to remind me when we were laying down the bed. He goes "mommy, story book." And I was like, "oh yeah, where is that book?" I was saying it in a way that I didn't really forget about the bedtime story. His favorite book right now is "The Going To Bed Book" by Sandra Boynton. The story is simple, short, and full of interesting pictures perfect for his age. He never gets enough from one book after another. Even during nap time in the afternoon, Sage demands for a story time. I guess it is a good thing that he is interested with books right now. I hope and pray that he would carry that interest towards reading as he grows. Sage is 22 months today and in no time, he's going to be 2! He is a little uncontrollable, but overall he is really doing well. Lately, he's been memorizing the United States Presidents. And to everybody's surprise, Sage has the first nine Presidents stored in the memory bank right now. Thirty-four more Presidents' name to go!
