My Little cute face is Eleven months!
My little man is eleven months. Looking back it appears time has flown by although It did not feel like that daily. Some days felt like it could not get any worst, then something worst would happen. I would wonder how my mother and other mothers managed this “motherhood/parenting” stuff ? Like Whitney Houston sang “I did not know my own strength!”
Baby JOOD is now ready to be promoted to only “JOOD”, he is fast outgrowing the baby word. Its exciting seeing how he has grown. He is still an explorer, continuously looking for new things to discover and conquer. Nothing is safe from him; he can climb in and out of my bed and the sofa. He can stand on his toes and stretch to take items from the bathtub,toilet and dinning table. He loves opening drawers and making a mess of anything he can lay his hands on including clothes. He is the best paper shredder I have ever seen!
Last week, he stood up backing me then suddenly turned to face me and took about five unaided steps. I screamed and clapped to encourage him but the noise was too much for him and he fell. Days later, he shocked my mum when she suddenly saw him walking into the kitchen with his hands open wide. She shouted in joy but alas he fell after about five steps. He seems to fall when we cheer him so we try to curtail our cheers when he suddenly takes his unaided steps. He is still trying to get the hang of walking unaided. He walks fines with his walker and toy truckers.
Did I say he loves to climb? He wants to climb everything so he can reach the wonderful world above him. The other day I saw him trying to raise his legs so he could climb into the bath tub. Days later, my mum saw one of his leg on the tub. He has also discovered the toilet roll and how to get some, which means he pulls the roll till it gets empty. So now we are too scared to allow him into the bathroom.
I really thank God for his goodness, mercy and grace so far. It’s been him at the wheel all the way. I really love my adventurous explorer!
