Happy 8 mths love!

Happy 8 mths old my darling Jayden boy :)


*takes 6.5-7oz of milk every 2-3 hours

*drinks more water now which helps in his bowel movements, at times he doesn't like to drink...

*doesn't wake up for night feedings already, thank God!

*takes 2 meals a day, lunch and dinner

*Meals consists of:

  • Brown rice porridge with vege/fruits
  • Cereal with vege/fruits
  • Pasta
Vegetables he has tried so far:
  • Carrot
  • Pumpkin
  • Sweet potato
  • Spinach
  • French beans
  • Tomatoes
  • Brocolli
Fruits tried so far:
  • Apple
  • Pear
  • Papaya
  • Bananas
  • Raisins
Others (drinks/spices):
  • Prune juice
  • Cinnamon powder which I sprinkle a bit into his food sometimes for some flavour :)

*sleeps around 11pm, wants to play more, tries to push his sleeping time further...
*still fusses a few times at night, cries out in his sleep, sometimes need to use soother
*wakes up without crying and will play on his own
*rolls all over the cot, he can land up right at the end of the cot all squashed up...
*likes to sleep tummy down/ face down sometimes


*has 2 lower central incisors (1st tooth out at 6 mths & 2nd tooth out at 7mths!)

Physical/Speech developments/habits:

*can sit upright without support

*stands without support for a few seconds!

*self feeds his food such as apples/rusks

*can hold his own drinking bottle to drink water for some time

*babbles incessantly in his own baby language like 'a-taaa, taaataaa, wowooo, oooohhhh, teehhh'

*knows how to choose his favourite people already (me, hubby, my mum and my sis)

*has very good memory- my mum visits him like once a week but he recognises her the minute she walks through the door!

*has a good sense of humour- knows how to laugh out loud along and squeal in excitement when I'm laughing at something...

*loves music and when I carry him and dance to the music

*loves people singing nursery rhymes to him

*can play on his own for a while before he starts screaming for me...

*still displays separation anxiety straits

*loves his bath time, sometimes will 'marah' when I take him out of the tub hehe

*very curious now, explores everything near him, can't sit still in stroller for long when we go out
*very affectionate child, loves to come to our face and kiss us, of course this comes with lots of saliva hehhehe... but it's so heartwarming..

*understands 'NO' when i scold him, he will stop whatever he is doing and look at me innocently, and starts babbling to me to try to get out of it... sometimes he will cry when I scold him...

*loves to pull my hair, which annoys me, and I will look right into his eyes and say 'NO'! He gets it most of the time and lets go of my hair

*very kepoh (busybody) fella... when he is drinking milk/makan and someone speaks or laughs, he will turn to look

*loves to stare at strangers outside (especially ladies), and once he gets hold of their attention, he will start babbling to them.. and naturally they will say, 'oh so cute... comel (cute)...'

*a real attention seeker, loves people clapping hands and say 'clever boy' when he does something like standing up or makan... he will give a very pleased smile :p

*likes to walk side to side holding the sides of his cot/playpen (like a crab heheheh)

*holds the sofa arms and climbs up and sits on it (real stuntman...)

*loves to go out kai kai...

*always stares at us and our food when we are eating and moves his mouth and tongue...

*cannot be left out- when I am watching tv or talking to someone, he will put his face in front of me and start babbling or just looks at me for attention... hehe

Mummy and Daddy are very proud of you my darling :)

19 friends spoke up!:

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

I could not believe that Jayden has grow up so much until i saw the pic that he can sit unaided and also standing with support. I still remembered the time I saw him at Shogun, still a lil baby sleeping in the stroller.

Does Jayden likes the taste of cinnamon?
