Although Kryston is getting really close to 1 year old, he’s on the smaller side like 8 months old baby. Carrying him, we have said to him, “You look like a baby!” Isn’t much of concern to us as we looked at his limbs, he’s likely to grow tall like daddy.
A week before he turns 1 year old, Kryston finally learnt to clap his hands & knows when to clap when we sing “If you happy and you know”. Weeee ! He enjoys being read to & recognises play, revealing his four teeth each time he laughs heartily.
It’s been a breeze feeding him meals. Baby led weaning doesn’t work well for him and I’m fine with it. I’m not really comfortable with the potential choke and gags experience in BLW. I’ve tried to let Kryston practice feeding himself… yet conclusion is he prefers to be served. Taking it slow as I know I can’t rush. When it’s time, he will pick up fork and spoon to feed himself.
Having number two, parents get a chance to make things better than first. I find myself more relaxed with his milestones progress. Slower than Leia but steady… he gets there.
As of now, he’s still not able to stand on his own. He refused to go hands-free as he knows he is not ready. My wonderful helper lisa is training him every morning to help him reach a new milestone or attained a new skill like knowing where is his ears, face etc. So far, he has unlocked most of his milestone achievements for his age.
Everything all good 🙂
