11 month old October 21, 2005

Posted by Zara's Mama in development, Zara.

Zara turns 11mth today! Just like her 9th and 10th month summary, this is for her 11th month :
Her weight should be between 7.5-8kg (last we saw the PD she was about 7.4+kg, but she feels heavier now).
She’s 73.5cm tall.
Still with only 4 teeth.

Mobility :
Walking – She’s walking more and further (~5 to 6 feet) without support
Climbing – Able to climb up and down furniture (sofa, bed) with ease, however sometimes still get carried away and may loose her footing.
Standing – Standing a lot now, unsupported (not more than 30s)
Dancing – Started dancing when she hears familiar music or nursery rhymes, dances by stamping her feet (interchange), shakes her head, and rotates herself on the floor.

Language :
Understanding – understand cause and effect (if you want biscuit, drink water first); choices (you want this CD or this CD); recollection (don’t bite on the soap, remember it was very bitter?); where (where is Rusty? Where is mummy’s nose? Where is the fan? Etc)

Loves Reading, nursery rhymes with action and now started watching DVD, VCD on her own.

Speaking – her vocabulary has increased, besides these :
Mum-mum for asking for food
Foo for food
Teh for take
Poo for put
Pad for breast pad
Pa-Pai for Bye Bye
Paa-ber for bubbles, balloons, soap suds

Likes imitating what we say, however, refuses to say mummy or mama.

Hands coordination :
Likes pointing and pressing buttons (lifts, switches, key board).
Can pat her own mouth with her hand to make the ‘wa, wa, wa’ sound

Feeding / Food :
She’s having 3 solid meals a day now. Appetite is getting better, can have half a bowl of porridge on one go.
Still on 5 feeds of breast milk (~4oz), and snacks a lot on fruits and biscuits throughout the day.
Very fussy eater.

Emotions / Preferences :
Able to exert her preferences more, and express them.
E.g. “Do you want to drink water?” Shakes head violently (Don’t want)
Do you want biscuit?” “Ugh!” with a smile (Want)

Not afraid of strangers, but picky with whom can touch and carry her.

Gives kisses to her favourite people right on the lips (mummy, and young children).

1 more month and she’ll be 1 years old, how time flies!

It’s great that you are recording all of these milestones… I didn’t and I forgot when exactly Ophelia started walking, when did she start teething… can’t go back and do it all over again…

10. blurblur - October 23, 2005

Wow..time really flies 🙂 So are you planning for her big birthday bash already?

11. Zara's Mama - October 24, 2005

egghead, Jefferene, Dinah,
Thank you

Baby smooches,
Yes, really fast

I started late as well. Should have started when I was pregnant.

I hope her wings will not grow so fast. Or else, she’ll be leaving the nest soon.. *frown*

Mother superior,
Thanks for visiting, but my baby is a girl. Not a boy. 😛

Yeah, wet kiss with tongue sticking out. 😛 *SLURP*

the diva,
Ophelia is still young, still lots of milestone to capture.

don’t think we’ll have a big party (but then it may end up being BIG), just a family dinner.
It’s going to be round the corner and I haven’t planned anything yet. *bite fingers*
