Originally posted 2009-07-14 22:59:09. I started this blog about 2 years ago now. Caitlin would have been about 2.5 years old then. If memory serves me right, I would have already done this memorable (at least to me) routine with … Continue reading

And again, it’s not Daddee.
He’s been pronouncing; more like uttering, “words” beginning with “D”. Such as “duh duh duh duh…” or “den den den…”
Tonight, I kinda figured out how to “spell” something he’s been uttering for about a week now.
Ardent; without the “t” of course.
On a related matter of his development, his walking is a lot more steady now. It’s quite amazing how within 3 days of making the first steps, he’s now walk-chasing his jie jie quick briskly.
Mind you, Hot Mummee thought his style of walking reminded her of one she knows but can’t quite put her finger on, until I reminded her of it.
Orangutan. Yup, legs spaced apart, arms up.

It shouldn’t be, given that Caleb is our second child…
But this Daddee seem to only have started knowing how to read the little human’s signs. And for the life of me, I can’t seem to recall those of Caitlin’s when she was his age.

Caleb turned 1 in Jan ’09.
Today he did these….
And then, for the first time(s?) in his life, he stood!
The following pic was actually not the first time he managed to stand. That first time that he did manage to stand, we broke into cheers and applause that frightened him, and literally made him weak at the knees!
But it wasn’t long before he managed again!
Well done, son! Heh heh!
So, soon he will be a walking babbling little boy for the rest of us to chase!
DAh-DAH-DAH duh duh duh…nnnnnnnnnnnnnnn na-na-na….
Generally, do babies start walking first, or start talking first? I can’t remember this for Caitlin; I do remember that she started walking when she was still in her nappies with an external anti-wet shorts, similar to the ones Caleb is wearing above!

September actually marked this blog’s 13th (or so!) month – yes I even forgot my own project’s “birthday”! Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten any real human’s birthday; until and unless someone proves me wrong!
It’s been an enriching experience.
- I have changed themes three times, trying to stick to using that smiley-faced candle / banner;
- I have experimented with ads, and will continue to do so;
- I have made some money, but mostly from writing reviews rather than from these ads; the total of which isn’t something to shout about, yet (?);
- I thought I’d enlist the help of Dr Pixie, but things haven’t quite panned out that way;
- I thought I had to be some kinda expert in all things parenting, and ended up just being myself and totally enjoying it!
- In being myself, I guess I have found readers (or they have found me) who enjoy reading what I really am about..
But I guess not surprisingly, I have also made some new friends!
Thanks for sticking around, everybody!
