Baby Milestones[2]: Walking and Kicking

2 Jan

Happy new year 🎉🎉🎉

Baby O closed the year 2016 by learning how to walk. It’s kind of cute that he’s always looking for his mommy’s or daddy’s fingers now as his sign that he wants to walk. A few steps at first, never ending circle-ing the house now. Hopefully husband and I can reduce our belly fat for good. 😂

As a former basketball player, husband has big hope that basketball will be Baby O’s first ball play. Too bad it seems the soccer blood runs thicker from my gene in Baby O’s vein. My father, my uncle, and my brothers are soccer players. Even I was a goalkeeper in my college’s female futsal team. 😉

Baby Milestones: May It be Skipped?

21 Dec

Lay, upturn, roll, sit, creep, crawl, stand, walk, run

Ori 2 months old: Resting on his arm

Those are the milestones any baby should achieve in their early stage of life. For psychology sake, it is better not to skip any milestones, because every baby needs to experience every single milestones in his/her life. That is according to Baby O’s pediatrician.

Ori 5.5 months old: Rolling on his own

Baby O first able to rest on his arms when he was 2 months old. However, due to his massive body weight for his age, Baby O is able to roll around by his own on his 5.5 months old. He is able to sit on his 6.5 months old. And able to creep on his 7.5 months old. He is supposed to start crawling on his knees these days but he finds it is hard to do on bed.

To be noted, Baby O usually spends his days on bed, or on his walker. Husband or I rarely put him on floor, because no floor available to explore in his bedroom, all space for bed. The open space is available in the living room, but we rarely sit on the living room. Either we are too tired at night on weekday, or too busy outside the house on weekend.

Ori 7.5 months old: Creeping on his feet

So it seems that Baby O will skip the crawl step and move forward to the stand up step. On his 8.5 months old, he is currently figuring out how to stand up on his own by always find ways to rest his body on his daddy whenever we are on bed. Maybe he is afraid on the floor and rather feels safe on bed thus achieve baby milestones, only on bed.

We are half proud and half confused parents, should we insist him on crawling first? What do you think, parents? What about your baby?
