This month, you have been really active. You crawl faster and your reactions towards your surrounding are sharper. You treat your home as your playground, crawling all over, under the tables and chairs, and using them to help you practise your standing up. Mama didn’t really want to restrict you and let you roam around. I figure I cannot set a boundary for you since I value freedom myself and I hope you have fun exploring all the different parts of the home.
I think you are a fun-loving girl. For two weeks, the teachers at BSF’s infant class have been telling me that you laughed and played a lot, to the extent that you wouldn’t want to take a nap. You are a happy child and love your snacks now. But it seems you have more preference for the biscuits to the puree that Mama made for you. Not good, you know? Mama has started introducing you to threadfish porridge but I think you need time to get used to the taste?
You have started to communicate more by participating in conversations with the adults. Although we don’t know what you are babbling about, we are always amused by your input. One evening at CG, you went on and on with your rambling and we got distracted by you! But how adorable you are! You have also started to respond to prayer whenever Mama starts with, “Dear God…”. You literally stop and listen and when I finish with an ‘Amen’, you laugh. You know that is a prayer right?
One thing you taught Mama is that you don’t really fancy toys that much. You are much entertained by boxes, tissue papers, plastic bags…things that make sound. This certainly is good news. There are really a lot of things to explore outside, say for example, nature and Mama can’t wait to bring you on some trails. Also, I realised you want our company more than anything else. Our presence is what you want, not the toys. Noted.
Oh yes, Mama thinks you love the kitchen. Whenever Mama is in the kitchen, you will come in and play with whatever things that you can lay your hands on. Maybe when you grow up, you help Mama bake some goodies to bless others?
Oh yes, you have been upgraded from the infant car seat. How awesome is that? Mama actually prefers that you are seated facing the front now as you fuss less which is bliss for me.
May you continue to be a happy child. Know that you are a beloved child of ours and of God. 😉
