Keith is 14 Months

Today Keith is 14 months (1 year and 2 months) but the sad thing is he was bothered with running nose and cough. This morning he woke up at about 5am because he could not sleep well when he coughing so bad. Funny thing is he had comically hit his own chest showing us how bad it was. After sending mommy to work, Grandma and I took him to the hospital to see the paed. When we were in the waiting for his turn he was practically roaming around the clinic.

But he is still as active and as KPC as usual


Statistics
Height - 77cm
Weight -8.75kg

Diet
His milk intake is still the same at 5.5-6oz of BM supplemented with 1-2 bottle of Enfagrow, in addition to his 2 meals of solid. Sometimes I have to mash up his solid food for him, other times he is ok like with a whole chicken drumlet.
He dislike things that are too hard and too soft but somehow he has a liking for what mommy and I have for our meal.

Sleep
He is able to sleep through the night in his cot but he would still have his early morning milk in his cot. He would tend to sleep close to our bed and we have taken one side off his cot and have it against our bed so that he would feel like he is sleeping with us.. Every morning when he gets up he would crawl to our bed, over his mommy, to be with us.

Teeth
He still has 8 teeth I am beginning to see the top of the all his cuspid showing already as 4 white spots and 2 of his lower molars are beginning to show its shape 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 more steadily now but occasionally he would preferred to hold onto us. Sometimes he would put both his hands in mine and call out to me, signalling me to carry 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

  • 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.
  • I do realise that he doesn't really like stranger carrying him.
  • Other than his mommy and I, nobody else can carry him into a car, he would be wailing as soon as the person board the car.
  • 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 when he sees a pretty girls.
  • He is also able to respond very well to "tim choong-choong", "clap-clap hand", "friend kiss" and "habis". Still to learn his forgotten "gong xi, gong xi"
  • Likes to put his hand into his mommy's shirt and torture her mole on her upper chest. Occasionally he would be putting his hand into random people's shirt too.

For reasons I dunno, he started walking with his ears closed today
