19 Months Old June 23, 2006

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

Zara turned 19th month 2 days ago. I was so busy, I only have time to write down her development (just like the previous month) today.

~ Weight 9.2kg
~ Height : 81cm
~ No new teeth sprouting. Her 4 Cuspids (canines) are still not fully sprouted.

Dexterity :
Expert in climbing and getting down furniture, but sometimes still prefer to shout out “Mummy help
She’s jumping more and higher nowadays.

Language :
She never seized to amaze us in her language development. Speaks very well for her age, and with quite accurate pronunciation. She’s also talking non-stop now, we could always hear her chatter in the house.

New popular words:
Before & Because
~ Mummy give Zara grapes before
~ Zara sit on horsey before
~ Zara don’t want, because Zara don’t like.
~ Zara cry, because Zara angry

Very good with forming sentences now, and always picking up new words without us consciously teaching her.

She can count 1 to 6, not just saying the numbers, but actually counting items.
Knows how to differentiate a few colours, purple, green, black, orange, still mixed up with the rest of the colours.
Able to recite longer part of some nursery rhymes (Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill, etc), and also started singing part of some songs in tune (Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Polly Put The Kettle On etc).
She knows a baby frog is called tadpole, and a baby butterfly is called caterpillar.
Started differentiating left and right. Knows her left hand from right, and left leg from right etc(mainly her body parts which comes in pair).

Feeding and Food:
3 meals and 3 milk feeds a day.

Not very adventurous in trying out new food, but will still try with lots of persuasion and the permission given to her to spit out if she didn’t like it.

Takes most vege except those extremely fibrous and bitter.

Emotions :
I have to say she’s very loving, she gives lots of hugs, and kisses; although still not quite know how to share yet.
Although clingy (to me), and sometimes very mischievous to the extend of being naughty, she’s overall quite an easy girl. She listens to instructions and reasons (at least to the ones given by me); knows what she can and can’t do; knows what is rude and shouldn’t do (like pushing people or things away); knows her manners, i.e. greet people (by saying Hi or waving her hand) and say good bye; knows when to use please, thank you, excuse me (when she sneeze).

I just love her to bits!

Her language skills are a bit like Champion’s (he is older by about 7 months).. I’m impressed ๐Ÿ™‚

Way to go, Zara!

2. IMMomsDaughter - June 23, 2006

Zara is so polite & such a good girl, can listen to instructions. Her speech is also very good for her age. I haven’t taught “Excuse Me” to my girl yet (bad mommy).Thanks for the reminder ๐Ÿ™‚

3. L B - June 23, 2006

I love her to bits too, but maybe not as many bits as you do, obviously!

4. Sabrina - June 23, 2006

Such a clever girl. Keith is also picking up his words and manners too.

5. See Fei - June 23, 2006

this is scrap book material…my print out to benchmark my future SON….

btw, does preparenting preparation apply only to the first unborn child?

6. Zara's Mama - June 23, 2006

Thank you..

She heard me saying Excuse me after I sneeze, so she just picks it up. Now after every sneeze, I’ll remind her, “What must you say”.. and she’ll say it. ๐Ÿ˜›

Uncle LB,
Thank you for loving me.. *muak*

It’s amazing huh seeing them pick up words and manners?

See Fei,
You probably do more for the 1st child, especially in my case I waited 6years for her.
The 2nd one you are more experianced, so I guess there’s less to prepare, but still there’s some preparation none the less.

How can you not love her? So special and she all your baby. haha ๐Ÿ™‚

Already knows left from right!!! I know adults that cannot tell the difference.

8. L B - June 23, 2006

9. Vien - June 24, 2006

10. sesame - June 24, 2006

11. MamaBoK - June 24, 2006

12. jazzmint - June 24, 2006

13. may - June 24, 2006

I love every bittie bites of her, and I don’t even see her often! *picks up the bits here and there*

14. See Fei - June 24, 2006

agree w jazzmint. maybe zara is special and it wil be good to send her to play school so she can start “learning” ….

zara may not want to disappoint you, that is why she take so long to come she may actually hibernate in your womb for six years b4 coming out ๐Ÿ™‚

15. Cocka Doodle - June 24, 2006

Wow! her grasp on the language is fast.
Very soon she’ll be saying; “I saw mummy riding daddy and bopping up and down last nite…..like amusement park rides”

16. Helen - June 24, 2006

You’re doing a great job monitoring little Zara’s development. ๐Ÿ™‚

I was just wondering if you backup your postings. I heard blogspot only store your postings for certain period only…

17. shoppingmum - June 25, 2006

I’m really amazed at Zara’s speeching ability. Maybe girls really talks better and earlier than boys when they’re younger. BTW, she’s also quite tall!

18. ka..t - June 26, 2006

Love your stories and anecdotes to bits!! One day, you must pass on your tips on how to record down all of Zara milestones so religiously!!

19. Contented Mum - June 26, 2006

She is so easy to love and so clever too!

20. blurblur - June 26, 2006

Zara simply amazed me with all the things she know at her age! I’m speechless! Clever girl! ๐Ÿ™‚

21. Tracy - June 26, 2006

At her little age, Zara sure learns fast and knows a lot of things. I’m sure Mommy not only love her to bits but must be very proud of her too. muahmuahmuah.

22. Twin - June 26, 2006

she’s such a good girl.

23. Sue - June 27, 2006

Reading your posts make me wanna have a girl too.. *sigh* So fast already 19 months old hor, Zara.

24. HMom - June 28, 2006

Happy 19 months, Zara!

How’s your pregnancy coming along? Try to spend as much time as you can with Zara as when the baby comes, you will have to divide the attention. I am still trying to work that out!
