19 Months Old
Zara turned 19th month 2 days ago. I was so busy, I only have time to write down her development (just like the previous month) today. ~ Weight 9.2kg ~ Height : 81cm ~ No new teeth sprouting. Her 4 Cuspids (canines) are still not fully sprouted. Dexterity : Expert in climbing and getting down furniture, but sometimes still prefer to shout out "Mummy help" She's jumping more and higher nowadays. Language : She never seized to amaze us in her language development. Speaks very well for her age, and with quite accurate pronunciation. She's also talking non-stop now, we could always hear her chatter in the house. New popular words: Before & Because ~ Mummy give Zara grapes before ~ Zara sit on horsey before ~ Zara don't want, because Zara don't like. ~ Zara cry, because Zara angry Very good with forming sentences now, and always picking up new words without us consciously teaching her. She can count 1 to 6, not just saying the numbers, but actually counting items. Knows how to differentiate a few colours, purple, green, black, orange, still mixed up with the rest of the colours. Able to recite longer part of some nursery rhymes (Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill, etc), and also started singing part of some songs in tune (Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Polly Put The Kettle On etc). She knows a baby frog is called tadpole, and a baby butterfly is called caterpillar. Started differentiating left and right. Knows her left hand from right, and left leg from right etc(mainly her body parts which comes in pair). Feeding and Food: 3 meals and 3 milk feeds a day. Not very adventurous in trying out new food, but will still try with lots of persuasion and the permission given to her to spit out if she didn't like it. Takes most vege except those extremely fibrous and bitter. Emotions : I have to say she's very loving, she gives lots of hugs, and kisses; although still not quite know how to share yet. Although clingy (to me), and sometimes very mischievous to the extend of being naughty, she's overall quite an easy girl. She listens to instructions and reasons (at least to the ones given by me); knows what she can and can't do; knows what is rude and shouldn't do (like pushing people or things away); knows her manners, i.e. greet people (by saying Hi or waving her hand) and say good bye; knows when to use please, thank you, excuse me (when she sneeze). I just love her to bits!
