Keith is 13 Months

Today Keith is 13 months and last year today we were supposed to be celebrating his full-moon. This month has been rather tensed for us because this month he has been sick for about 2 weeks.

Although he is able to walk he still prefers to reach out for something to hold on to while walking


Statistics
Height - 76cm
Weight -8.3kg (Thanks to wen for informing me for my earlier mistake)

Diet
His milk intake is still the same at 5.5-6oz of BM in addition to his 2 meals of solid. Since he is sick we put him fully on EBM but problem is it is occasionally not sufficient enough for him so we fit in 1 feeding of powdered milk.
He dislike things that are too hard and too soft but somehow he has a liking for rice, noodles, sunflower seeds and peeled raisins.

Sleep
He is able to sleep through the night in his cot and he would sleep over to our bed too. I have taken off on of the sides of his cot and put his cot against our bed so that he would feel more secured. Problem is when he gets up in the morning he would crawl over to our bed to be with us. Normally when he sees me, he even stepped on his mommy to get to my side or in between us.

Teeth
He still has 8 teeth I am beginning to see the top of the 2 bottom cuspid showing already as 2 white spots. We are thinking that it will be 4 canine teeth cuspid and possibly 2 molars too.

Verbal
He would be calling out "papa" "apa" but he is still unable to address me yet because he would be calling out of the blue. He seems to like to call out "papa" more than "mama". He is able to call out "umm!" & "mum, mumm" for food when he wanted some of our food.

Mobility
He is beginning to walk on his own now but occasionally he would preferred to hold onto us but sometimes he would just swing our hands away and walk on his own when he finds something that interest him. He has also developed a very bad habit, picking up things from the floor. Sometimes he would even squat down to poke into the holes in my Crocs shoes.

Others
This is what he does when he is tired of walking..... looking up to see if anyone would take pity to carry him instead.

  • For now I am on top of his preference list of person to carry him, then comes Mummy, PoPo, Jiu-Jiu (Uncle Jason), Grandma. Nowadays he kept wanting me to carry him all the time, he would even climb onto me when I am really busy.
  • Developed a liking to shout, when he is unhappy, not given what he wanted, not carried or when I switch on the blender! He also likes to quarrel with my sister!!!!
  • He likes to point at things with his index fingers, it is either to where he wanted to go to, something he wanted or it is at pretty girls. In fact I think he and I share the same taste in pretty girls !
  • He is also able to respond very well to "tim choong-choong", "clap-clap hand", "friend kiss" and "habis" but seems to have forgotten how to "gong xi, gong xi"
