JD turned 1½ years old today. By coincidence, the daughter of one of our foreign friends in Kunming turned 3 on exactly the same day. So we joined her and 3-4 other toddlers for a little party in Green Lake Park. JD enjoyed the train [see photos], but not as much as squirting water at the plastic ducks. He needed four goes on that before losing any interest!
It's been 18 months of fast development for JD and a steep learning curve for us ageing parents! JD is just getting over his first cold, so he keeps pretty healthy. He is a very inquisitive chap and has a good memory for words, places and even tastes that he likes/dislikes. He tends to mix with kids who are a year or more older than him, but seems to take this in his stride and is often the one doing things that the others try to copy (climbing, poking bugs, jumping off walls, splashing in puddles etc). Without wishing to sound soppy, we're very proud of out little rascal. Happy Half Birthday, JD!
