Curious Jake

Our curious monkey name Jake. He is our buckaroo, lil monster and monkey coz he always apt into something. Climb here and there and reaching stuff like his Dada's wallet and cigarette on top of the table. We caught him many times scattered those sticks of cigarettes on the floor. He can even climb up and down the stairs by himself even if we put a fence on it. He figured it out how to knock that fence that blocked him from going up stairs. Lately, he has been showing a little sweetness to Justine, like giving her a muah kiss and touching her but we still have to keep an eye on him every time he touches Justine coz he gets carried away and ended up pressing Justine's arm so hard.
Here is one of the many times that monkey J, would just climb on top of the couch and touch his lil sister.
His Grandma gave him this little rocking chair that has been in the family for more than 40 years.
One of Jake's pastime is to seat next to his dada's case and trying to open it up. I'm glad until now he doesn't know yet how to unzip it (he is still figuring it out) or else its a major trouble between Jake and Joe (his dada).
The monkey had escaped from his cage and climbed on top of the table. He got my cellphone and start pressing it, good thing it was locked.
He can drink milk from a cup now but we didn't let him to do that more often, because at his age he is still has no self-control. He'll do whatever he wanted to do and never listen to the "no no no".

One of the things that Jake discovered recently that made me and hubby go nuts is gagging. He would place his hand or finger far into his mouth and he will gag. He does this every time we put him on time out or sometimes after lunch which occasionally it result to vomiting. And it's kind of odd coz he finds this thing so amusing to him.

I research that kind of behavior and this is what I found:
"At 17 months of age, you're not dealing with a child who is making a conscious decision to gag himself; what you have on your hands is a child who temporarily finds this kind of activity pleasurable. I would recommend ignoring the behavior, because he probably won't continue to find this to his taste. If, however, he provokes a strong response from you, his behavior will be reinforced, and would be more likely to continue."


1. Your toddler can understand what you are saying and can say words. With a blossoming vocabulary of approximately 15 words in addition to "Mama" and "Dada," he'll soon be able to say short "sentences." You may find yourself starting to resume speaking in more "adult" tones and using longer sentences. Keep talking! The more he hears, the more he will pick up.

2. Your toddler may be ready to explore the world on her own and venture a bit further away from you. No sooner do you sit down than she's out of sight and you have to jump up to find out what she's gotten into. Rather than run after her all the time, catch her attention by saying, "Bye-bye!" Then take a step or two in the opposite direction. She will most likely run after you after a few moments. But be prepared to run if she doesn't! Enjoy her emerging independence and revel in the fact that she still wants you close by.
