So I haven’t updated the blog for a while, and in that time all has mostly gone to routine. Anyways to start, every Monday my wife works at home, as we take Xavier to early learning class at Shichida. Basically it is a program where learning activities for Infants and Toddlers are designed for whole brain training: a balance between right and left brain stimulation by building synapses, and unleashing your child’s potential. So in layman’s terms it helps young children, with motor skills, reading, puzzles etc. Its actually great to see the variety of ages and levels of development in the children. Xavier is the youngest in his class, and being the only boy, he seems to have found his place among the girls.
We started off with just him and Sophia, who is about 2-3 weeks older than Xavier, and then along came Ashleigh, and this week Aimee. Xavier is in the Mandarin speaking class, so the teacher, teaches the children in Mandarin. Its funny watching Xavier in class as week by week his attention span has lasted a bit longer. He still can’t last a whole 50 minute class, however this week he lasted near to the end. All in all I think its a great achievement by all the students to be able to stay still and attentive for so long. Granted I have mostly only seen girls do the classes, and it is quite cute seeing little one year olds come out of the class walking out so happily.
After the class, Xavier usually is terribly tired and drained, and most of the time will fall to sleep in the car. I can’t blame him. I won’t go into detail into any of the other activities during the week, as mostly its all been the same. We did though have a photo shoot with AXIOO (an Indonesian Studio), which involved mainly Xavier. I hope to post the photos soon, so in the mean time, we will just have to wait. There are a few snippets of the shoot below. Anyways I will be quite busy with wedding this week, so the updates may come at a snail pace. Hope everyone has a great week and weekend.
