Aidan Update :)



He's now 10.2 kg and 78 cm tall at 13 and a half months old :)

According to mom, he walked 3 steps unaided yesterday but I wasn't around so it doesn't count :P..But he's been standing up on his own and taking mini single steps with me around. Lately, he's been standing up unsupported on the bed pretty often but what's scary is that he loves to go to the edge of the bed and stand! I mean of all the space on the big bed, he choose to go right to the edge, and stand with his soles just sticking out a little..like he was attempting a back flip dive..Oh man! This fella ah..he gives me a heart attack at times! I'm fine with him not walking yet though...I know he will walk when he wants to and when he does, there's gonna be no stopping him.

He's been pretty noisy lately..and he 'shouts' alot now..really loudly! He usually goes "Gah!" I really don't know how to stop him from doing so..we go shhh and he goes louder. We ignore him and he still does it. We reprimand him and he'll cry *arghh*. I think he started shouting after seeing his cousin doing it when we were at our in-law's place having lunch. Mom was saying that Aidan is good at picking up bad habits...oh well~

He doesn't verbalise that much too..cept for the normal mama, papa, mummum, dada and bear (the bear he hates) and some other non comprehensible B sounds. Ok..I think that's just pure baby babbling. He calls piggy 'gigi'... He's been going kekekekek, or kikikikiki alot too but we have no idea what it stands for but that's the sound he makes when he 'talks' to us excitably. I don't know whether I should be worried that he's quite slow in picking up the language..especially since his peers seems to be faring much better. We converse and read to him quite often and I do let him watch those Baby can Read tapes and some other educational stuff but he still prefers High5 and Wheels..

He's okay with hand gestures. He finally became proficient with the 'gong-xi' move only after we completed our visiting..so he was gongxi-ing away at us from last monday onwards. He can do the basic flying kisses,clapping of hands and High5-ing.. He loves to do the 'twinkle twinkle litle star' handsign. Once when he got bored with a Baby Can Read video and was crawling away..But when he heard the music of Twinkle Twinkle..he immediately crawled back , climbed up to the bed, stood up and started twinkling away with his hands and bobbing away to the music :)

Oh..he's been more cheery too. He smiles and laughs a lot now and is still as active and hyper as ever. Eats huge amt of food and drinks abt 640ml of milk per day. He drools even much more now though. I really wonder why...he can't be teething constantly..He usually go through abt 3-4 bibs per day..timroy , is there anyway u can teach me the method of stopping the drooling...mebbe over the phone?

Reading this posting, I just realised that I had not reported Caleb's development for a while. Partly, I don't know how to describe, about some of his cute actions, his babbling baby language... you just taught me some from this posting....

Caleb is extremely bad in his speech dev too, but I'm so worried about it. His nanny said that he got a sharp tongue, so meaning extremely talkative, so if he talks later, we can have more peace now ;-)

Re:
Hmm..I think u shouldn't be too worried. I always think that all kids develop at different time. U must remember that Caleb is afterall a premmie. But i think being worried is such a natural reaction as parents..esp when u start comparing them with the other kids their age eh :)..

Angie, not your turn to worry yet. Dayne only says a few words now even when he is much older than Aidan! BUT we r not worried lah, slow may not = problems. Recently after Dayne started walking when he was 16-mth old, MY GRANNY THEN ME THAT MY DAD ONLY STARTED WALKING WHEN HE WAS 2!!!My sis also started walking late ( 17mths). Aidan is so good in his physical developments, speech can wait ok? I remember Trish saying that her 2 boys started walking when they were 10mth old, but only talked when they were about 18mth (if I didn't hear wrongly). Every kid is different..;)Most importantly, they respond to what u r saying, and they r happy..;)

Re:
yeah..:) I always tell myself that thankfully he doesnt walk that early coz it's gonna be even tougher to watch over him then. He's already so fast n active just by crawling so if he starts walking/running, i probably have to get a harness!

I think as parents..we tend to worry no matter what...esp abt our child's development. We can try to be open-minded but deep down, there's always a nagging thought that wonders whether we could have done more. But yeah..one has to accept that all kids develop differently and at different pace.

Re:
I dunno whether to laugh or cry when i read this hehe..
Have u ever ask the paed why he drools so much? I always forget!

Re:
Hmmm.....never occurred to me to ask the paed. Maybe I'll ask next mth when he go for his hepA jab.
His drooling cannot be due to teething cos all his teeth are out already.
U should see him in his total 'wetness' stage. Sweat tickling down his face, mucus dripping from nose and saliviafrom his mouth. Yucks!

Re:
hahah same same. When Aidan was 'sicker' a few days back, he was dribbling all over. Perspiration on forehead, tears streaming from his eyes, mucus from his nose and drool from his mouth..His entire bib, shirt and part of his pants were soaked! Very chum. And those who carried him also got drenched!

Heh. Don't worry about the speech bit. I didn't start talking till I was 2. My folks were worried, but the paed told them not to worry, I'd talk in due time. Apparently once I started talking, there was no goo-goo gaa gaa but full words immediately. Heh. And once I started, there was no stopping me... :D

it's hard telling a parent not to worry. :) C has only started to learn how to crawl on all fours at almost 14 mths.

Just got to keep telling ourselves children have their own time and target and they'll get round to whatever they are supposed to do as and when they are ready.

Re:
heh..u know, no matter what we tell ourselves, somewhere deep in our mind we will still worry. Natural lah :)

For me..aidan not walking is considered okay coz i'm gonna face a whole set of problems when he do so i rather he takes his time :P..

when i was teaching in a school about 2 yrs ago, my favourite 2yo (at that time) boy didnt bother to speak from jan till oct and he has 2 older sisters. he understood whatever we had to say to him and it wasnt baby talk, i could tell that he was just being 'lazy' and the 'spoilt' baby of his family.

u shouldn't worry too much about aidan and continue what u r doing. giving him an all rounded, fun and loving environment, which is the best teacher any kid could have :)

Re: San
heh thanks. I'm not overly anxious or anything. I think i'm just reacting like a typical mom hehe..I keep on saying its ok, its ok..He'll talk and jabber when the time comes but the mind keep on questioning why he's taking his time :P..

Aidan's so cute and getting so big!
Did you know that AIDAN is in the top 10 most popular baby names for this year, or last year actually? Bet you didn't know that, did you? hehe. IT's a cute name!

Re:
actually i do know. I read it in msn news that Aidan and Ethan are the 2 names 'new entrants' into the top 10 most popular names this year..I think Aidan was no.2 if i'm not mistaken..:D..

Actually, sorta surprising coz i dun hear of that many boys with the name Aidan (or mebbe i havent gotten to know them or their mummies yet)...Or probably most of the li' boys named Aidan are in states :))
