Self feed (Part II)

April 1, 2009

Assalamu’alaikum wr. wb.,

Ya Bint,

You are already turning 20 months. Yup in 4 months time, you are turning 24 months/2years old. Alhamdulillah!

Yesterday marked the first day that you fully self-feed without Ummi’s feeding you. That is over dinner. You had Salmon Fried Rice and some Coleslaw that Ummi cooked and prepared for the day. And you end the day with drinking milk. Alhamdulillah!

You are really doing great in this area of development. Alhamdulillah!


Self Feed

March 9, 2009

Assalamu’alaikum wr. wb.,

Ya Binti,

After about 2 months(now you are 19 months) of playing with spoons, bowls and water, you are able to self-feed yourself, for food that you want to eat. For example, noodles and beancurd. When we eat outside, you are so focused in what you do with those cutleries and food that Ummi and Abi are able to eat in ‘peace’.

Not only to food, even liquid! Yes, you are able to use the spoon to scoop soup and water to your mouth with minimum spills.

Alhamdulillah, a distinct development from Akhi. Ummi will be waiting for the day that you are able to eat yourself for all meals.

  • Assalamu’alaikum wr. wb.,

Ya Binti,

Today, you are 9 month and 2 day old. Alhamdulillah. How fast time flies and since you were born into this world? Yesterday we went for your 9 month check up at Tampines Polyclinic. We are about 7.2kg and 68cm of length. No wonder, Ummi now can feel when carrying you! You are growing, my little girl. You passed your listening test and you so not have squint eyes.

Besides the weight and the length that the nurse took, there are other development that you have been progressing…

  • Standing up for about 10seconds, upon hands free of surfaces
  • Sitting down from standing up position
  • Transferring support from one place to another as you cruise and stand
  • Sitting down on a high chair without any problem. Previously, you would bend you head
  • Sitting up while feeding you porridge
  • Crawling very fast
  • Various ways of breast feeding which is difficult to do breast feed you in public
  • Clapping hands
  • Mouthing things
  • Feeding finger foods like the baby biscuits and other form of biscuit
  • Biting biscuits, though you have not yet have teeth

Social-Emotional Development

  • Enjoying playing “Catching” when you are crawling
  • PLaying along with Akhi
  • Baby talking, “ga-ga”, “ba”ba”, “aw-wa” (Ummi hope it is Allah)
  • Calling the people around you “Eh!”
  • Stranger anxiety expcet towards Ummi, Abi, Akhi, Nyayi, Yayi, Cik Izzat, Cik Yani and Aunty Irene

Intellectual/Cognitive Development

  • Knows the physical setup of the house
  • Able to find someone when he/she hides

That’s basically what you are doing currently at 9 months and going.
