Hi moms, dads and friends, I know it has been ages since I last made a Baby Update. In fact, my daughter is now a toddler. What can I say? I have just been soooo preoccupied that I haven't really thought of filming another YellowMum video. Actually it was Robyn who wanted to do a video. And since she wanted to be in it, I thought why not do another update video.
Pushtoy: Kaizen Playtime, bought from Toy Kingdom
I'd say 11 months was when she gained her confidence to use her push toy properly. We would practice her walking skills. Ever since she started pushing/walking her push toy, I would set aside 30 minutes to 1 hour where I just let her walk. I would walk with her or ask her to catch me. Then little by little, she gained her confidence. When she slips or falls, I never laugh at her nor do I baby her. I would just tell her that it's okay and ask her to stand up.
The first time she walked by herself was March 29, 2014. She was 13.5 months. I remember it vividly because we came from a children's party. We went home and played with Robyn. She could already stand on her own so I tried calling her and she walked a few steps to go to me. We did that a couple of times with my husband. And oh God, was I proud! :)
This was from the party. Day when Robyn first walked on her own.
Then I just continue our walking activity every day. I walk with her for at least 30 minutes in an area of our home that has a bigger space for walking.
And now, geez she walks, she runs, she hops! My husband and I always get exhausted chasing after her. Especially now because she doesn't want to hold our hands while walking anymore. She grew up to be this independent little girl! Oh gosh, I can't believe my baby is no longer a baby!!!
