She Is 10+1 M.o.N.t.H.s.

Chara turned 11 months today and we celebrated her pre-birthday in PerLis:D
At this age,she;
- enjoys looking at books and leafing through the pages, though she won't always turn them one by one.So,Pa & Ma decided to stick with sturdy and inexpensive board books that can stand up to small fingers.
- can babble a few more short,fully inflected sentences besides "MaMa"(sometimes she'd call Ma-"MeMek"!),"PaPa","Abang",'KaKak" that sounds like she's speaking a foreign language.We'll surely act as though we understand;)
- is able to respond to simple questions and commands, especially if we give her some clues with hand gestures.For example, ask "Where's your mouth?" and point to it. She may even answer you in her own way, using her own gestures, such as shaking her head for "no."
- isn't walking yet,but we encourage her to walk by standing or kneeling in front of her and holding out your hands.Or hold both her hands and walk her toward you. If she's like most children, your baby will take those early strides with her arms out to the side (for balance) and bent at the elbows, her feet turned outward, and belly out in front while her bottom sticks out behind (for balance).
She also likes PooLing jelly much!;)
