I know, I know. I have been a little quiet lately. But there are reasons behind my quietness, you see. I have actually been gaining more skills slowly and silently everyday!
At 9 months plus, I can do a few more things compared to before. If a few months back I could just bring my hands together and stare at them fascinatingly, now I can express my happiness by clapping my hands happily!
And my teeth! I don't know why, but they keep growing more and more (and fast too!) each day! My first two white caps sprouted when I was as little as 3 months young. And now, at 9 months, another 2 gleaming white teeth are beginning to appear at the bottom, making a total of 8 (4 above, 4 bottom) gleaming white teeth altogether now!
Speaking of which, I am now able to add more vocabs to my baby talk, like "mama" "a-bah", "puh", "beh", "ehh", "ba-ba" and a few others that I can't recall at the moment. Papa is still waiting for me to say “pa-pa” though. He keeps going like, paaaaaaaaaaa-pa? Baby, paaaaaaaaa-pa? Hehe.
Oh and I am very mobile now. Very mobile and active to be exact. If a few weeks back I was struggling to get something which is just a few feet away, now I can creep from one end to another effortlessly and quickly!
This helps mama on her effort to lose her weight! Because every now and then, she would shriek and run towards me to stop me from getting into the kitchen, toilet, under the table and all other forbidden parts of the house! One time she almost fainted when she found out that half of my body was already inside the toilet, trying to grab the shower handle! And another time, her eyes almost popped when she caught me at the door grills, trying to reach out and put the slippers into my mouth! And there was another time, she shrieked again when she found me creeping to the dustbin, and trying to mess with the rubbish inside! Poor mama, I think she's going to get heart problem soon.
Oh and just in case you're wondering, I have not started to crawl yet. In fact, I am not showing any signs of crawling, so mama thinks that I may be skipping the crawling part altogether and leap straight ahead to walking. Not sure how true this is, but I am definitely showing interests to walk. I love to stand at every chance I get and have started to pull myself up in my effort to climb on something (or someone).
I can now place my steps properly and can definitely walk like everybody else when mama or papa held both of my hands too!
Mama thinks of getting that Push & Walk thing, like my friend Aariz has. What do you think? I'll bet it will be so much fun!
Before I go, here's a clip of me clapping happily away. Until the next milestone from me!
