Finally he now crawl anywhere in the house. So I can do something instead of picking him up always away from hazard thing I make our living room his playroom with borders around that he can't crawl out of the place. One thing I noticed on him is the way how he poop. Like in the morning he poop twice an hour after I feed him milk with rice cereals on it. there are days that he poop soft just like paste and very stinky several times during the day and there are days like two or three days he don't poop..is this normal? does your baby do the same way? I feed gerber foods, foods with DHA label on it. sometimes I feed him boiled rice with egg on it. give him some yogurt juice but most of the time his water is enough because he moves everytime . I had never seen not moving when he is on the floor, unless he fall asleep. how's your baby?

Both of my babies are far from being babies now. Kathryn is seven and a half years old now and Paul is three years and eight months old. However, I remember when they were smaller and hitting all of these milestones. I was very happy to see that they were progressing the way that they were supposed to, but it was also bittersweet as well because I saw that they were gaining a little bit of independence and they didn't need me for as many things anymore. I would love to be able to take them back in time to be a baby again if only for a short period of time.

yeah you are right I would felt the same way if my son one day will do things for himself.I wish they will just stay a baby..I am very happy now having my baby even the doctor warn me not to have a baby because I was high risk..But thanks to God everything was fine no complications at all. We are both healthy. It's good to be a mommy right? are you contented with your being a mom.? wish you think you can do more for them when they were a baby?

Aww.. It is so nice when babies start to grow and learn how to do different things... It is something as a parent to feel so proud about.... My baby is 15 months old, I say baby but really the way he is now I call him a toddler... He is on the go every day, he gets into everything that he can, he has been walking since he was 9 months old, and has not stopped ever since... He is keeping me fit with chasing after him every day though. At the moment he is having 1 nap a day in the morning around 10am, he will sleep for maybe an hour and a half to 2 hours, and then he will be on the go again for the rest of the day, until bedtime which is normally around 7-7.30pm, then he will sleep through till 6.30-7.00am the following morning... It is a nice routine that he has become accustomed to, and I am enjoy the freedom of sleep now. He is learning words now... his favourite is "Football" and "Cat"! It is so cute to he him. Enjoy your baby... every month is a milestone.
