20th Month Update
Zara is 20mths, 4 more months till she's 2yrs old. ~ Weight 9.7kg (0.5Kg in a month, yikes!) ~ Height : 81cm ~ No new teeth sprouting. Her 4 Cuspids (canines) are still not fully sprouted. Dexterity : Climbing up and down stairs while holding on to the side of the stairs. Able to feed herself while using a fork. Language : ~ She can count 1 to 10 now. ~ She's started reciting the alphabets A to Z, but skipping quite a few letters in between (e.g. a, b, c, d, e, f, g then skip, and go straight to q, r, s.. etc). ~ She's able to identify and name shapes, e.g. circle, square and triangle ~ She sings and recite the nusery rhymes to herself a lot, and is getting pretty good at it. ~ She even sings part of some Chinese children songs even when she doesn't speak the languge (through memorising the sounds). (and lots more which I'd captured in some of the posts) Feeding and Food: 3 meals and 3 milk feeds a day. Eats a lot of snacks in between, like fruits, biscuit, chocolate, home made ice lollies, nuts, raisins, cheese etc. Her current favourite junk food is chocolate (she especially loves the dark chocolate with marzipan that Daddy got from Germany), and fruit gummies. She 'orders' her food nowadays, asking for "bread and cheese", "egg sandwich", "yogurt", "pancake" for breakfast. "noodle", "porridge", "fish ball" or just "egg" for lunch And dinner she knows she always have what we have and she only ask to eat what we're eating. Emotions : A loving girl, not afraid of strangers, but will check for our approval before being 'friendly' to one. She knows being nice is not to be rude, not to say words like stupid, or push people away. She knows being nice is to say thank you, please, sorry when needed. She loves watching Barney, Richard Scarry, Wheels in The Bus; and watches at least 2 shows a day (her max). She's in the midst of being weaned off thumbsucking (oh I'm so going to miss seeing her cute little thumb in her mouth).
