11 month old

Zara turns 11mth today! Just like her 9th and 10th month summary, this is for her 11th month : Her weight should be between 7.5-8kg (last we saw the PD she was about 7.4+kg, but she feels heavier now). She's 73.5cm tall. Still with only 4 teeth. Mobility : Walking – She’s walking more and further (~5 to 6 feet) without support Climbing – Able to climb up and down furniture (sofa, bed) with ease, however sometimes still get carried away and may loose her footing. Standing – Standing a lot now, unsupported (not more than 30s) Dancing – Started dancing when she hears familiar music or nursery rhymes, dances by stamping her feet (interchange), shakes her head, and rotates herself on the floor. Language : Understanding – understand cause and effect (if you want biscuit, drink water first); choices (you want this CD or this CD); recollection (don’t bite on the soap, remember it was very bitter?); where (where is Rusty? Where is mummy’s nose? Where is the fan? Etc) Loves Reading, nursery rhymes with action and now started watching DVD, VCD on her own. Speaking – her vocabulary has increased, besides these : Mum-mum for asking for food Foo for food Teh for take Poo for put Pad for breast pad Pa-Pai for Bye Bye Paa-ber for bubbles, balloons, soap suds Likes imitating what we say, however, refuses to say mummy or mama. Hands coordination : Likes pointing and pressing buttons (lifts, switches, key board). Can pat her own mouth with her hand to make the ‘wa, wa, wa’ sound Feeding / Food : She's having 3 solid meals a day now. Appetite is getting better, can have half a bowl of porridge on one go. Still on 5 feeds of breast milk (~4oz), and snacks a lot on fruits and biscuits throughout the day. Very fussy eater. Emotions / Preferences : Able to exert her preferences more, and express them. E.g. “Do you want to drink water?” Shakes head violently (Don’t want) “Do you want biscuit?” “Ugh!” with a smile (Want) Not afraid of strangers, but picky with whom can touch and carry her. Gives kisses to her favourite people right on the lips (mummy, and young children). 1 more month and she’ll be 1 years old, how time flies!

It's great that you are recording all of these milestones... I didn't and I forgot when exactly Ophelia started walking, when did she start teething... can't go back and do it all over again...

blurblur said...

Wow..time really flies :) So are you planning for her big birthday bash already?

Zara's Mama said...

egghead, Jefferene, Dinah,
Thank you

Baby smooches,
Yes, really fast

Helen,
I started late as well. Should have started when I was pregnant.

Maria,
I hope her wings will not grow so fast. Or else, she'll be leaving the nest soon.. *frown*

Mother superior,
Thanks for visiting, but my baby is a girl. Not a boy. :P

Jazzmint,
Yeah, wet kiss with tongue sticking out. :P *SLURP*

the diva,
Ophelia is still young, still lots of milestone to capture.

blurblur,
don't think we'll have a big party (but then it may end up being BIG), just a family dinner.
It's going to be round the corner and I haven't planned anything yet. *bite fingers*
