Dan turned 11 months old today. One more month to go! Woot!
I thought I should pen down some of his developments after reading his sister’s post a few days back.
Since weaning him off BM, his appetite increased by leaps and bounds. He consumes his puree stuff really quickly and needs to top up with FM. I am less adventurous with him and only supplied him with vegetables and fruits thus far. He eats carrots, green peas, beetroot, pumpkin, butternut squash, spinach, corn, potato and sweet potato. He loves fruits and has tasted honeydew, apple, pears, grapes, peach and bananas. Biscuits? Yes, of course.
His daily meal schedule @ 11MO
6.30am – Breakfast (Milk, Bread or cereal with milk)
8am – Cereal with milk, biscuits or banana
8.30 to 10/10.30am – Nap
11am – Lunch (puree with brown rice/cereal)
1.30pm – Milk
2pm to 4pm – Nap
4pm – Snack (fruits)
5.30pm – Dinner (Puree with brown rice/ cereal)
7.30pm – Milk
8pm – Zzzzzz
Because he eats a lot, he poos daily. It’s a good thing. ;p
:: Physical development
I hate to compare but sub-consciously, I find myself comparing him to Faith. Dan is extremely active but doesn’t like to learn to stand on his own. He will cruise though and crawl all over the place. I think it will take a while for him to walk independently. It’s okay. Meanwhile, crawl more!
He has 8 teeth as of now and I think more are coming out, judging by how much he drools.
Dan is a happy boy and doesn’t make much noise when he is out with us. He seems to be comfortable with strangers AS LONG AS we are around. He flashes his sweetest smiles at the ladies he meets and this makes them happy.
Hmmm, he can be rather cheeky and will purposely do things that Mama says ‘cannot’! When he knows he has done something wrong, he will look up and flash his smile again. Grrr..
:: Relationship with sibling
It’s a love-love relationship as of now. Pls stay that way!
Loves to explore his surrounding…
His favourite corner…loves nuts and bolts.
Loves all things round
Likes to mess up the books in the library. Tsk tsk.
His mother wishes he would love to read more than he messes the bookshelves.
Observes more than he screams when he is in the car seat these days. He waves his hands to bid folks farewell, claps his hands when we ask him to, raises his hand when we sing a familiar tune that he has heard in Sparkanauts, sign to show that he wants to eat and likes to use his fingers to poke.
Speech-wise, I think he is a man of few words. ;(
Future F1 driver
Dislikes being in the water.Sigh!
So, here he is at 11 months old. Stay happy!
