Keith is 11 months old

I have not been updating my blog as often recently and I actually scratched my head for a post then a look at the calender I realised that today Keith is 11 months old. Wow, now I have to really look into ordering his birthday cake, which I have been doing for the last few months but was not able to decide upon which one.

This was taken when I took him out to a hypermarket nearby our restaurant.

Statistics
Height - ??
Weight - ??
(We missed his last appointment and we have decided to take him to see the doctor when he is due for his next jab.

Diet
His milk intake is still the same at 5.5-6oz of BM in addition to his 2 meals of solid. Mummy's worry is her expressed milk is getting less by the day.
Right now he is practically eating everything except eggs, banana and spicy stuffs (I guess this will be the last month that we will observe what Grandma advised us not to give him until he is one) His favourite is whatever we are having for our meal.

Sleep
He has been sleeping with us for almost a months now. The good news is he is able to sleep through the night in his cot. Yesterday was so funny that I found him sleeping reversed from when we initially have him sleep, with his legs on his pillow sleeping. Once in a while he will whine for attention and take a peek to see if anyone is attending to him or whenever we move him to a better sleeping position.

Teeth
He still has 8 teeth and would gnaw and lick on almost everything you give him, especially human fingers!!! I have been guessing that he is probably teething again but I fail to detect any newer teeth.

Verbal
He still "baby babble sing" as he is about to fall asleep. He is able to say "mama" "ama" "papa" "apa" more clearly but to date he is still unable to address me or Elaine. As for food he is able to say "umm!"

Mobility
He is crawling unsteadily, probably we do not give him enough time on his own to crawl. He is able to stand on his own for minutes now and he even pushes our hands away to let him stand on his own. He is even able to clap his hands while standing up. Today Aunt May tried to let him walk on his own, when Grandma informed us all that he is able to walk with a little assistance. They tried to let him walk with both hands behind him to catch him just as he is unsteady. Sadly Aunt May was only successful for the first few times. Upon seeing that Elaine told her to move him to a wider space so that she can record it down, on the first try she failed to catch Keith and he fell for the first time.

Others

  • For some reason he likes us to let him stand unassisted and sing "Happy Birthday" for him while he claps his hand.
  • He likes to hold onto my ear lobes with his left hand and sometimes poke the end with his right index finger. (my sis have had the same habit when she was small and then it was Grandma's ear she held onto)
  • For now I am on top of his preference list of person to carry him, then comes Mummy, PoPo, Jiu-Jiu (Uncle Jason). He also tends to prefer someone who stands up than someone whom is sitting down.
  • He likes to point at things with his index fingers.
  • He is also able to respond very well to "tim choong-choong" and "clap-clap hand"
  • I do realise that he is extremely ticklish.
