14 month old January 24, 2006

Posted by Zara's Mama in development, language, Zara.

I have to be discipline and do this every month, just to capture Zara’s development. She turned 14 on Saturday, I had been so busy, only have time to do this now.

Weight: ~ 7.9Kg (weighed 27/12) but I believe she’s about 8.5Kg now b’cos she feels very heavy.
Height: ~77cm
This month, she sprouted another tooth, so she has 4 upper teeth, and 4 lower teeth now.

Dexterity :

  • walking up stairs while holding up the rail, or the wall
  • likes bouncing on her feet, a bit like jumping, but not lifting herself off the ground yet
  • walks up and down stepsLanguage :
    She has us amazed on this area, her understanding of the language is really good, and she’s picking up new words almost every day. She’s also started to join them to make them into phrases. Additional words she’d learnt this month :
  • Nah-yen (lion)
  • Nam (lamb)
  • moong (moon)
  • Spicy (after saying this, she’ll stick her tongue out panting)
  • Laugh (Giraffe)
  • Stairs (she sometimes confused this with UP, she’ll say ‘stairs’ when asking me to carry or asking me to lift her up to the bed)
  • Panda beh (Panda)
  • Pane (Plane)
  • Paink Paink (Pain, she says this while pointing her index finger to her chest)
  • Skeh Skeh (Scared, she says this while patting her chest)
  • Big
  • oh-nang (Orange)
  • gap (grape)
  • nai-nai (night night)
  • tir-tee (dirty)
  • soo (shoe)She says phrases like :
  • Tatak, wis (kakak, fish; meaning she wants kakak to give her fish)
  • Bye Bye Nah-yen/Papa
  • Go up stairs
  • Go park
  • Bird bird fai (fly)
  • More more biskuh (biscuit)/moonermang(banana)/wise (rice)She knows almost all the body parts : *eyes, ears, head, *nose, hair, neck, face, stomach, *pet-pet (private part), *breast (thanks to breast feeding), legs, hands, feet, pointer, belly button
    (*she knows how to say the word too)

    Feeding / Food :

  • Favourite is still fish.
  • Still mainly on breast milk, but on days when supply is low, she’s willing to take a bottle of formula even from me unlike previouslyEmotions :
  • Started calling me Ah Meen (Ah Mee slowly turned Ah Meen)
  • became even more clingy.
  • Giving me more kisses on the lips nowadays
  • Showing some toddler tantrum nowadays, by crying, kicking her legs, arching her body when she doesn’t get her way
  • Sociable, but when confronted by a stranger, can be a bit more quiet then her normal self

    Wah, so detailed. Very good report. She will treasure this…

    Do I have time for such details? Hmmm, see first lah..

    8. Jefferene - January 24, 2006

    Eating fish is good! At least she likes something and going out is easier coz easy to get food for her.

    My YChing only likes to eat unhealthy food, I always have problem finding foods for her outside unless I bring along home cook porridge. Nowsaday, home cook porridge also not so keen!

    9. Mama BoK - January 24, 2006

    Very cool.. and more detailed than mine. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    10. Helen - January 24, 2006

    Dangerous time to be near a learning toddler. Summore a talking one. Gotta be careful with the fish, prawn and crab….. you never know if the parrot of a kid will blurt those out !! lol

    11. MyLittleChampion - January 24, 2006

    12. Allyfeel - January 24, 2006

    Zara has really grown to a cleaver and adorable little girl. Thanks to her Ah meen. ๐Ÿ˜›

    13. blurblur - January 24, 2006

    Zara is really good in the speech department! Ah meen…so sweet leh…;0

    14. TWO LITTLE FELLAS - January 24, 2006

    woman, really admired your meticulousness on lil zara’s development.
    you did well and lil zara did even better..

    15. sesame - January 24, 2006

    Zara is sure growing well! Language wise, she will probably amaze you even more with more vocabs soon. On her way to more tantrum sessions too. Sit back and watch out for the terrible twos.

    16. mom2ashley - January 24, 2006

    yea i know what you mean about being disciplined in jotting down her month by month development. anyhow, at the end of the day, you’d be thankful that you did it….i’m trying to do it to;)

    17. Zara's Mama - January 25, 2006

    you definitely a list fanatic. *roll eye*

    Yeah, have to be meticulous. Or else will forget.

    she can do the hand sign, but don’t know how to say the word yet. Lyon knows?

    good to keep track ler. Do one for Justin too.

    thanks for the info.

    contented mum,
    next time people ask you when your kid started crawling, started taking the first step you won’t know if you don’t record.

    you have 2, more work for you if you if want to do this. ๐Ÿ˜›

    Zara also likes junk food if she has access to, but I try to control it. Yee Ching still slim, some junk food, still ok for her system.

    you do yours on a daily basis.. i can’t do that..

    yeah.. crab, prawns, bananas very fast can be picked up by them.. I always have to nudge hubby when we’re stuck in a jam, because he’s a compulsive swearer. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    haha, Oscar so clever to runaway from home!

    thank you.. thank you.. when should I buy you coffee?

    I think this is the time when she’s aborbing words like a sponge, and repeating it like a parrot.

    Two little fellas,
    Really have to do it, or else forget easily.

    Yike! Terrible Twos coming my way!

    yes, i believe so.. Don’t want to forget when she asks me later in life when did she take her first step. ๐Ÿ˜›

    18. jazzmint - January 25, 2006

    wow wow…she certainly can speak a lot of words at her age of 14 months!!! Envy envy…

    how come ah mee become ah meen liao haiyoo…
