As toddlers, Shai Ning and Rai Sing have a lot to learn.  Both Krystal and Ian take turns teaching their sons.  They focus first on potty training, and it doesn’t take long before the boys both learn to use the potty.

Shai Ning learns what Ian does in his spare time.

 As the oldest, the Starrs focus more attention on teaching Shai Ning how to walk and talk.

While Shai Ning has the attention of his parents, Rai Sing explores the world of the nursery.  The xylophone draws his attention.  He first tests out the stick, chewing on it, sticking it into his nose, and looks it over.  He grasps it in his hand, and eventually strikes one of the colorful slats on the instrument.

He is rewarded by a single tone, and it surprises Rai Sing.  He looks.  He giggles.  He does it again.  He whacks another color and hears a new tone.  He continues to explore this toy.

Sometimes Shai Ning and Rai Sing get a chance to play in the nursery at the same time.  The brothers have different interests though.

Shai Ning tends to go after the items in the toy box.  Rai Sing likes to play with the toy house.  Perhaps in the future, we will see if these simple choices in play things might affect their development later in life.

I’m not sure if you’ve ever noticed, but if you leave the toddler books out on the floor, the kids will read them by themselves. It’s a wonder they can read before they learn to talk!
