Jonathan…7 Months

A follow-up from my post on Jonathan’s 6 months milestone, I would say it’s never too soon for babies to achieve new act. Jonathan boy can now sit up by himself from a crawling position. No signs of him crawling on all fours although he tend to lift himself with the support of his palm and feet. He is very good in combat crawl so now he will move around the living hall and at times got stuck underneath the stand fan or dining table. He is able to pull himself up with a support like sofa, baby cot, our legs but he don’t know how to sit back down on the floor yet. It surprises me when he does that as I thought this would only come next month.

So far, I’ve only given him cereal, apple, carrot, potato and porridge with fish. I’m doing it very slowly, giving him new food one at a time. He is gaining weight well so I guess I don’t have to be too eager and also due to his previous health condition.

Jonathan boy is very sticky to me probably because I’m still breastfeeding him so he knows mommy can always satify him. When others is carrying him and if sees me, he will be whining for me. Darling always say, “See…he wants you only.” Haha….Darling is being jealous. Nowadays, he disallowed us putting him in the baby cot. Probably he knows we are going to leave him playing alone so he cry for our companionship.

And he is definitely a demanding baby. When he can’t reach for the things he wants, he will whimper. If you snatch take away things in his hand, he will cry. I tried to teach him to play stacko and he refused because he didn’t want to let go the stacking block in his hand. I hope he has not learnt selfishness. Gotta teach him to share now.

You see…this boy dislike sitting on a potty. Another headache…

    Hahaha…..I HEAR YOU!!!

    maybe coz our boys are very near in age, the developmental milestones are somewhat give and take!

    But Jonathan is doing very well. He can stand very steadily too from the looks of it!

    GREAT JOB Jonathan!

    Andrewjune – I don’t think Rachael cried like Jonathan did. I thought of getting an attractive potty with handle to influence him but they are just too expensive and not worth the money for a potty.

    of coz he doesn’t like his potty lah.. it is PINK in colour! hello.. he is a boy lah!

    haha.. just kidding… when i first introduce potty to my baby, i did not put him there for no reason.. i wait until he shows ‘signs’ of poop-ing.. then i rush to the potty, throw away his diapers, sit him down n there goes.. mission accomplished.. that was when he was 6 months old.. by seven, i put him on da potty first thing every morning for him to do his business and now.. it is a daily routine for him n me..

    Merryn – Thanks for dropping by.

    Unlike some babies, Jonathan poopoo don’t have a routine…it’s either morning or night and not everyday too. He will only sit when he wants to poopoo.
