What Jonathan Boy is Up to Now

I decided to stop posting on Jonathan boy’s monthly update as he is 1 year old now. Nevertheless, I won’t stop posting on his new achievements or milestones from time to time as I won’t be able to remember so many things with my deteriorating brain.

His upper left and right first molar has fully erupted. Now I can introduce more food to him. I no longer need to mash or grate the porridge ingredients. Just dice into smaller cubes or break into smaller pieces. And instead of leaving the porridge to cook for 45 mins, I reduced it to 30 mins. Soon, I will substitute porridge with rice.

His new fond play item is the toilet bowl. He tend to put his hand into the toilet bowl to reach for the water. He will grab a toy and drop it into the toilet bowl. When I instructed him to pick the toy up, he will do so. Jonathan boy, do you know the water in the toilet bowl is so dirty? One day, he may climb into the toilet bowl. Yiiiicks….

He is very good in manuevering around the house with his Thomas scooting train and Mr. Tolo scooter….moving forward, run through a bumper, go astern, turn left and right.

Like I mentioned before, he inherited my character and personality – SHY. He refuses to wave goodbye or smile. He will pull away when someone try to hold his hand. He will turn away hiding on my shoulder.

The greatest of all, he has started to throw tantrums. Just yesterday, I refused to give him the box with a broken toy in it. I grabbed it away from him worrying that the broken toy may hurt him. He then tried to pull the box from me and was yelling and screaming and crying. He is being demanding too. During meal time, if you don’t let him hold his own spoon, he will cover his mouth with his arm and hide his face down trying to get the message accross to Mommy that, “If you don’t give me that spoon, I won’t eat! It’s either you win or I win.” He just want to play with the spoon. Once you gave him a spoon, he happily let you feed.

From gliding to crawling on four and now walking on two. Just last weekend, he was still clenching to our palms while wandering around. The next day, he is letting his hands free in the air. How long will he hold on to our hands?

    maybe it’s time he wants to learn how to eat by himself?

    My Ryan will clench to my fingers while walking outside of the house. In the house, he’ll busy walking here and there on his own as long as I stay close/near him. Otherwise, he would follow me and grab my pants/skirt where ever I go!

    shoppingmum – Yeah, he is learning to self-feed now but he just want to play with the spoon and not scooping the food.

    Joanne – I think he is fascinated with the water in the toilet bowl.

    Ann – Sometimes when I’m eating crackers, he try to snatch from me or give me that innocent look.

    HuiSia – Yup, soon he only wants to hold his gf’s hand.

    MC – Terrible mess. He will use his hands to grab the food in the bowl too.

    Ryan mami – It’s good that Ryan clench to you while walking outside at least he won’t go astray. I must make it a point for Jonathan to hold on to me while at outdoor.

    Marie – Hihi…even big kiddo like me also throw tantrums.
