Aiden turns 14 months

06 August 2007, Monday

*backdated post*

Our boy turned 14 months last week on 01st August. There seems to be an upscale to his mental development this month as we observed, he is now able to comprehend many things beyond our imagination.

Let me give you some examples:

Yes / No
He mostly understands the meaning of "Yes" and "No" – We constantly ask him questions and if he doesn’t want to do something, he will shake his head left and right. He will nod if he wants something or ask you to do something.

Bottle Caps/Plastic Wares/Tubes
He loves putting on and taking off cap covers, bottle tops or plastic covers. Usually takes off caps/covers, peers into the box or bottle, and puts the caps/covers back on. Of course we have to untwist the tops for him first. (Here, he will return the bottle to you and "peel" the cap whilst nodding his head!) He entertains himself this way for a long time.

Peek-a-boo
I usually play this game with him around the sofa set; by hiding behind furniture and calling to him. He will crawl to the direction of the voice, but by the time he gets there, I would have moved to the opposite end. I will play this game until he gets angry and hits the floor with his hands in frustration. Last week, he surprised me by peeking below the sofa to look for my feet. When he saw them, he laughed! What a smart boy!

Catch me if you can
When sitting on our king size bed after his shower, he will usually crawl very quickly to one end and make me run to him (I am scared that he will fall down). Upon seeing me, he will quickly do an about turn, and run to the opposite end of the bed. Then I will need to run around the bed to the other end. It's really quite funny to see him crawl up and down as if daring me to catch him. Hmm – not so funny when I have to run around and around trying to catch him!

And finally, after many moons, Aiden is now able to stand on his own without support. He has not learnt to take his first step yet ~ but I hope that it will be soon.

LOL! Lucky ler you! How nice if Lizzy could call "mummy" first. Then , only she try her first step. However, She only knows "Woo... Woo..". Then, she starts running around. :)

And , this poor mummy would have to hold her almost whole day long as she prefer to walk on the floor.

Aiden is such a clever boy. With the yes/no sign, it's much easier to communicate with him, rite? I'm still trying to teach CE to nod and shake his head. But he doesn't want to follow wor. :(
