Jonathan…8 Months

Jonathan boy reached the 8 months milestone 2 weeks ago. Have been quite busy recently due to work.

Here are some photos of the cheeky one…

He will greet us with big smile and grin when he sees us at the door step upon returning home from work.

He can crawl on all four now but still prefers combat crawl.  Helps me to mop the floor though. He loves to crawl to the dining table and chairs and then get stuck between the legs of the chairs/table.

Occasionally, he knows how to show gesture of bye-bye by opening and closing his fist when I lift up his hands. Sometimes, he will ask for things by opening and closing his fist. While we are dining, I broke pieces of biscuits on his bowl to train his pincer grasp and he’s doing very well. It also ended up cleaning biscuits dropping on the floor.

He loves to babble (especially when he’s angry) but yet to call “Da-da” and “Ma-ma”.

Unusually, his upper lateral incisor on the left erupted first then the central incisor. Funny. Soon the other three upper incisor will be apparent as it has started to erupt half way thru. Two at the bottom remain standing strong. No pic to show here as he dislike people touching his mouth, nose and eyes. But he stood still when I’m cleaning his ears.

What to watch out for in the days to come…? Standing unaided at least for few seconds which sometimes I can see him attempting to do. And of course calling “Da-da” and “Ma-ma”!

    Ay Feng – thanks for visiting.

    Huisia, Shasha, Debbie – He often gets his clothes dirtied and when he gets on the floor map, he drags it along. *Headache*

    Christine – thanks for dropping by. I’d seen photos of your baby taken by Jazzmint and your little baby is indeed adorable too.

    June – Can’t wait to see them walk and that’s how we can loose the extra fat by chasing after them. 😛
