He is so fortunate to be surrounded by everyone who loves him so much.. He's everything.. Dia la anak, dia la cucu kesayangan, nephew and even a spoil great grandson to his Nyang.. Because my grandmother stays with us after Atok passed away..
He grew up just like other boys.. What I noticed, his milestone somehow a bit defer and odd from what he supposed to achieve accordingly..
2 months old - mengiring
6 months old - lie face downward (meniarap)
8 months old - climb
10 months old - sit on his own
11 months old - stand up
1 year old - crawl
1 year 6 months - walk
I'm quite worried at first.. because he had a second cousin who was born the same day with him.. but she already meniarap by 3 months old.. but when I told the elders "biasalah budak lelaki memang lambat sikit".. OK fine.. just wait and see.. I told this matter to his Paeds and he advised me to do some baby massage to stimulate his nerves & muscles..
I'm so happy when he started to meniarap, but another problem occurred. He can't stop moving whenever he still awake, he almost fell over from his rocker when he tried to escape and move. I thought that he would skip his milestones because he could climb up any hurdle when he was 8 months old. A bit odd when he can sit on his own without crawl up first.
Many people told me it's a normal case when baby skip to crawl and straight to walk on their own. I just believe that because he could stand up dependently to any sofa or grill at his age 11 months old. Ok, I just wait for the moment that he will walk to me on his own anxiously.
But after his 1st birthday, the milestones reversed and he started to crawl. Before that, although he could climb, sit, and stand he will shuffle lie downward to move from one place to anther. It's a bit embarrassing when most of his peer age already walk and run, but he still crawling at that time.
But when I read an article says that 'The longer the better for kids to crawl when they are still baby' I'm a bit relief although the other part of my mind whispered "but he already 1 years old".
In terms of communication, verbally he's like other babies, babbling & responding when he's almost 2 months old.. I remembered he started to call my name when he almost 1 year old although he called me "Kak".. sheeshhh, because my family all called me Kakak. Started to call "Ke" for Uncle.
Once he started to walk, it took only few days for him to master the movement and he ran here and there until everyone being assigned to look after him. I can't tell how active he is at that time and even now he still.
And how do I discover his real condition and characteristic of Autism.. I shall continue on the next post because this part itself already too lengthy to continue..
Eiman - 7 months.. he already had few teeth at this time..
Guling-guling sampai masuk bawah kerusi..
Not even crawl yet, he could climb at this height to escape out.. Mushroom hair trademark began..
hahaha! didn't i mentioned before that he can be at anywhere he wanted to be..
