|Thank you Aunt Belinda for getting this lovely Baby Gap ensemble for me!|
You have turned 14 months and Mummy has so conveniently missed this milestone! You have developed so much that Mummy is having a hard time trying to keep track of these changes.
|How do you like my toga?|
Sometimes when you have the "Oh oh, I'm falling" look on your face, you would stop, stabilize yourself, make another determined grin on your face, and continue walking. You're a cautious little baby!
And oh boy, the look on your face when you managed to walk without falling? Priceless! You look so proud of yourself and even prouder if Daddy & Mummy saw you doing it! :)
We think it might still take a while for you to walk properly because as of now, you obviously show a bigger preference to crawl than to walk. Your attempts to walk would only come about when Daddy & Mummy encourage you to do so. That's fine little one. You'll spend the rest of your life walking, so enjoy your crawling days while they last!
While you're still friendly with outsiders, you have entered into a Mummy-only phase. You would only want Mummy to put you to sleep, otherwise you would cry the house down.
|Your versatile rompus!|
As for talking, you keep blabbering "Da da" all the time. And for the first time today, you actually repeated "Da Da" when Daddy was carrying you and repeated that word to you. We think you might actually be realizing that "Da Da" refers to your Daddy!
That said, the word "Ma Ma" doesn't seem to fall under your repetoire of favourite words yet though. You tend to say "Da" and point at things when you want us to tell you what they are.
You love sitting inside boxes. No matter how small the container is, whenever you see a container on the floor, the first thing you'd try is to squeeze your butt into it!
|That's what I mean!|
|The same thing happened at playgroup too|
You're exerting your own personality in that you would take a madeline, pass it to Mummy and say, "Uh uh" so that Mummy would hopefully get the hint to open the wrapper and feed you the madeline. Once, Mummy was occupied in the kitchen so you took an already-opened madeline on the table and stuffed it in your mouth to Mummy's amusement.
Oh, Mummy actually caught you taking your waterbottle out of the diaper bag once to quench your thirst by yourself! One thing's for sure. You won't go hungry cos you're so resourceful!
|Guess what your brown moustache is? MILO!|
It's easy reading your mind because you simply eat whatever Mummy eats. Have I mentioned that you have a penchant for Singaporean food? You absolutely adore Kaya toast, such that Mummy would have to make my own Kaya because our imported supply is fast running out.
You also prefer to self-feed and are pretty adept with using the fork and spoon by now. The mess you make is incredible though. Mummy wishes for a robot to clean up your mess!
Oh, funny thing is that when we feed you, you would take the food out of your mouth and examine it before stuffing it back inside. At the beginning it was quite amusing to witness this, but now we both sigh in exasperation when you do this with noodles, because more of it stays outside your mouth than inside! Aiyoh.
You have also learnt to roll, throw and kick balls. We got you your first-ever mini red ball and you simply enjoy playing ball by yourself / with us. :)
We love you to bits. Continue to be our little ray of sunshine during this cold winter!
Mummy & Daddy
|At the playground in your winter wear. It's so much freaking work to dress a kiddo in cold weather!|
|But I guess its worth seeing you enjoy yourself in the outdoors!|
|At least you're smiling here! You usually dislike wearing caps!|
|And you look cool in some caps! One of my favourite recent shots of you!|
