Development notes 20080630

Lynn is 1 year 2 months and 6 days old today.

since she loves my ginormous diaper bag so much... i gave her a silly small chinese embroidered bag, strap shortened of course. she has been putting her farm animal toys inside the bag and walk around the house. or put the shoulder bag around her neck, walk over to me, and wave goodbye.... 這麼小就要離家出走了嗎?

走路、跑步都蠻穩的,已經過了推推車的年齡了,可是看到她的 walker 還是要推一推、拉一拉,連裝貓食的塑膠桶子都要拿來彎著腰推推推。

loves to read, including mommy's magazines and novels (Mandarin and English). 也會自己拿著故事書 "reading-out-loud"。

可以跟花店老闆娘「哈拉」十分鐘。話很多,但沒有大人可以聽懂的字,句子抑揚頓挫煞有其事。

從一堆衣服裡面找到媽媽的 bra 拿來戴在頭上。(鼓爸看到了說,「good job baby. that's what i would have done, too.」)orz

has a devious laugh and makes this terrible throat croaking sound

loves mommy's wallet and keys

has a shoe fetish -- always crawling towards our shoes since the pre-walking days, plays with her shoes by picking them up and re-arrange them in bizzarre places in the apartment, even tried to wear daddy's flip-flops.

拿起自己的鞋子襪子,就試圖往腳上套,當然是不會成功,但勇於嘗試的精神可嘉。偶爾也會拿爸媽的鞋子襪子往自己腳上比畫,還嘗試穿爸爸的超大夾腳拖。

loves the computer -- has many different ways of manipulating the mouse, "types" really fast on the keyboard, knows when she does something with the mouse, stuff on the monitor will change. also know that mama has a wacom pen and tried to click away. (I'm really amazed by this.)

likes to pull mommy's loose T-shirt and stuck her head in. (It's a bit late to want to get back in my tummy alright?!)

feeds Cheerios or fruit on the fork to mommy and daddy, including the ones she has licked or half melted.

open, close, open close, open, close .... ∞ with the kitchen drawers.

dances when mommy dances or hears favorite music

in the morning, after finishing her milk, climbs into our bed and find mommy, kisses mama on the mouth or lie down on mama, cheek to cheek.

愛吃水果。每天必吃香蕉葡萄,最近還吃 peach, nectarine, apricot,and plums。通常媽媽會切片,不過那天實驗了一下給她整顆李子拿著啃,可以剋掉半顆。(不過下次還是對切去籽後再給她比較安全,免得把李子的籽吞下肚長出李子樹來。XD)

愛吃鼓爸的早餐蛋餅(omelette),吃完自己的稀飯後,都要分一杯羹。鼓爸煮的 omelette 裡面有馬鈴薯洋蔥起司蘑菇蛋番茄,還會搭配半顆酪梨。最近終於也說服了小鼓酪梨是好物也很好吃,開始跟著媽媽一口一口吃掉營養多多的綠色天然豬油

最近量的身高是 29 英吋﹦73.66公分,體重是 20.2 英鎊﹦9.17 公斤,換算成長百分位:
Length = between percentile 10 and 25
Weight = between percentile 10 and 25

擅長屋內趴趴走之後奔到床上休喘抱棉被,有時把枕頭從床墊上拖下來,丟到地板上後,再整個人趴到枕頭上。


媽媽的一些碎碎念:

在這段各項認知能力的全速前進期,感覺她像是個 auto-pilot learner,自己發現新的遊戲,新的玩耍方式,爸爸媽媽都不需要特別做什麼,自己就學會了很多東西。有時感覺她的行為模式超前,訂閱按進度寄來的發展電子報,常常點了當月/週可進行的活動通知來看,發現小鼓已經以自己的方式玩類似的遊戲玩得不亦樂乎了。

身高體重還是屬於迷你嬌小,因此媽媽很在意她到底吃得夠不夠多,夠不夠好。但也了解每個小孩發展進程不同,如果吃得不夠長得不好,她也不會每天開開心心起床,興高采烈的進行一整天的活動。其實也不需要太擔心啦。

雖然有買育兒書也訂閱電子報,但大多數的時候 I don't want to let the books, theories, and experts run my life. 自己以前雖然也是學兒童發展的,不過年代久遠大腦失修,也並不想盡信書,感覺自己倒比較像是用常識在帶孩子。書念得再多,第一次全職帶孩子,而且是自己的小孩,不可能就立刻是個全知全能的媽咪,必要的 know-how 還是要靠 books and internet,但看過就放在心上做個 reference 就好,也不死守。

有一個很深刻的感想,跟姊妹友與老公都聊過,但卻一直無法訴諸文字,即使在聊的過程中都覺得語言無能描述我的感受。我一直不覺得我跟孩子之間的關係是很 typical 的「親-子」關係,行為上在他人眼中看來與一般母女應無大異,只是我自己心中一直覺得,她是與我一個很親近很親近的個體,我照料她如同所有母親照料子女,但心中的感受,卻好像與典型「母女」關係不同。不知道怎麼說,很難形容,算了。
