Caylee @ 7 mths

She has been stagnant at 8+ kg for the pass 2 months now. For her age, she is slightly below average. But her height is at the top percentile - can't remember the number, only saw from the graph the pead plotted. These numbers don't really mean much to me as long as the pead doesn't voice any concern.
But what really amazes me about this girl is her character.

She is very much into detail. Minuet things like my ear studs attract her. And the little bell on my bracelet holds her focus for minutes. I don't really think its a girl thing. Coz she looks at other small things with equal interest.

Did I mention she grasps things very well? Not a rough fist grabbing but pinching between fingers. So she manages paper very well.
However, she is less acrobatic than her brother. Christopher was standing on his head, in an inverted V, with one thumb in his mouth and the other hand balancing himself at her age. But Caylee is still attempting to lift her bum up with only knees and hands for support. She moves by way of propelling herself. From a sitting position, which she sometimes is able to get herself into, she makes a leap forward towards wherever she wants to go.

And while Christopher never went commando in his crawl, Caylee pulls herself forward with her arms, dragging her bum along. And she turns herself around with her belly button as the focal point.

And I have to applaud her upper body strength. She has a great capability to stretch her upper body right up to her fingers to try and reach for Christopher's toys. And if she manages to get it, still manages to pull herself back to sitting position. Amazing!

Her playpen has been lowered at the nanny's place because Caylee is attempting to stand now. And soon I reckon she will be moving arond more. She has got a strong kick too so I have no doubt her legs have strength as well.

She does seem to be a strong one. God really answered my prayers far more than I expected.
What makes her laugh? Christopher for sure. She really looks up to him. Everytime he turns around and talks to her, she will chuckle. In fact she will laugh really hard when he does some kind of stunt. Gosh ! My 2 kids seem to enjoy the adrenalin rush!

And if anyone can topple over a bumbo chair, my girl can. The bumbo chair can't contain her anymore.

Really can't wait for her to grow up and watch the 2 kiddos play together.

Your sweetheart is developing well at her own pace! Sometimes I also unintentionally compared my girl with her brother... as she also did better than her younger brother, but usually elder sibling has more advantage and priviledge that the yonger doesn't. Attention wise, we already have to share between both of them!:)

Time flies, they grow up pretty fast even before we realise! I'm sure they will enjoy each other company very soon!^-^

Have a wodnerful weekend!

mommy to chumsy said...

awww....she looks so chubby :) oh i don't think the bumbo chair can last till the child is 8 months old. When they are more active, the bumbo chair is pretty dangerous.
