Shaking head 'No No'

Tiffy has just recently started shaking her head from side to side (like she's saying no) very often. Although she looks funny when shaking her head, but I'm abit worry that this is a sympton of 'sick' or 'disease'. She never behave like this before. So, I made an effort to check from internet....
.
Well, some said it's normal for baby to go through this developmental stage. Some said baby's imitating adult (I always shake my head when I say no). Some said this is a sign that baby's getting tired. They'll either at or about the same time starts rubbing her eyes and getting fussy. When they start shaking their head quite often...its about time for a nap.
.
Hmm...If Tiffy's shaking her head like what some people mentioned above, I'm quite happy with her development as she could better express herself.
.
But then, I found this as well....
.
''Signs of ear infections include ear pain, fever, irritability, or dizziness. Infants may give more subtle signs, such as ear pulling and head shaking. Infections most commonly occur in just one ear, less frequently in both."
.
Perhaps, Tiffy does pull her ear previously, but she does not pull it recently....Maybe I should keep an eye out though for any other symptoms, or maybe she starts pulling on the ears again. Otherwise, we could probably have a good laugh at her new skill!!!

Wave bye bye!!!

.

We have been teaching Tiffy to wave bye bye since months ago...BUT, she's not able to pick up this skill until yesterday, she's showing another big step in her development milestone. She's now able to wave bye bye when we asked her to do so. Followed by clapping hands when we praise her 'good girl'....

.

video

.

Tiffy may not fully understand what waving means, but she's definitely enjoy waving bye bye as it's a way to connect with us and make all of us laugh happily.

By now, she's able to clap hand, wave bye bye, and hit my palm when I say 'GIMME 5'....Does she ables to differentiate all these commands? I'm curious to know too....

Refusing to crawl

Tiffy's not showing any urge to crawl. She can scoot around in her walker like a professional all over the house, she can roll over easily, but just refusing to try to crawl. She does get tummy time but just hates it. Everytime we put her on tummy, she'll make fussing sound or just lying comfortably on the couch....We tried to put some of toys in front of her, she'll try a couple of time to reach it, then give up and starts to cry and fuss until we move the toys where she can reach...Aiks~~~
.
Tiff's lying comfortably on the couch....
.
.
Slowly lift up her butt....

.
Use her feet to support her butt...Thought she's going to crawl....
.
.
After 5 seconds, not showing any movement....lying comfortably on the couch watching cartoon again....
.
.
Aiseh!!! Tiffy, when are you going to crawl??

Little maid

My same old routine life......wake up, breakfast, playing with Tiffy, house chores, noon nap, lunch, blogging, crafting, dinner, sleeping....
.
BUT, today is abit different...I got a LITTLE MAID to help up with the house chores...hmmm~~what a relaxing afternooon. Finally I can goyang kaki, minum kopi :D
.
video
.
(Ah moi Tiffany, cepat gosok lantai, jangan pandang sini sana, jangan main main, jangan ketawa juga, cepat gosok, jangan tengok televisyen)
.
I always leave Tiffy on the playmat with the toys, playing while seeing me do the house chores. She must have learned and imitating me. In fact, Tiffy loves imitating people now. Everytime, after she had her F1 car race, grandma will wipe off her sweat with tissue. And that day, she was doing the same reaction by wiping her hair and head with tissue after the car race. Other than this, when someone claps hand, she will does the same too. When she see I'm laughing happily, she will laugh happily too. Of course, I laugh for some reasons, she laugh simply because I'm laughing, silly girl girl :)

Baby food (8-10 months) - Cauliflower, Eggplant, Onion, Mushroom, Celery, Capsicum

Cauliflower

Nutrition :

Cauliflower (like other veggies in the same family such as broccoli and brussel sprouts) is packed full of phytochemicals which are said to help prevent cancer.

One cup of cauliflower is packed with Vitamin A, Vitamin C and even calcium! Cauliflower is a great addition to a healthy diet.


Preparation :

The size of the cauliflower does not affect the taste so don't think that buying the largest or the smallest will get you the best tasting. You do want to buy a cauliflower that is almost wrapped in it's green leaves. The leaves protect the tender curd from bruising and mold.

When cooking cauliflower you should always steam it to retain the most of it's nutrients. Baking is another option but seldom is cauliflower baked by itself without being a part of a recipe.

Don't over steam cauliflower or you will find a mushy and bitter tasting veggie.


Age of Introduction :

It may cause gas and may also be a bit difficult for a young infant to digest. Cauliflower is best given to an infant between 8-10 months old.

Eggplant

Nutrition :

Eggplants contain fiber, a very important part of any diet as fiber helps maintain bowel regularity. While the eggplant is not a nutrient packed powerhouse, it does contain a great amount of Vitamin A and Folate.

Eggplant also contains a wonderful amount of calcium and even some Vitamin K.


Preparation :

Eggplants should be firm and a bit heavy. Choose only those eggplants that have smooth and shiny skin. The color, no matter which color you purchase, should be very vivid.

An eggplant that is discolored or has scars and bruises is not a good choice. These blemishes may indicate that the flesh of the eggplant is damaged or even decaying.

Store eggplant carefully in the refrigerator; eggplants are a delicate vegetable! For longer storage, only cut the eggplant when you are ready to cook or otherwise use it.


When cooking eggplant, you may either steam, fry/sautee, or bake it. Steaming it may be the best method if you plan on serving eggplant to your baby.

Steamed eggplant tends to become very soft and tender (and sometimes mushy) so it makes a great finger food too.


Age of Introduction :

Eggplant is best given to an infant between 8-10 months old. If your baby has had any digestive issues, it would be best to introduce eggplant without the skins. You can offer pureed eggplant or steamed eggplant as a finger food! Eggplant is versatile and may be mixed with a variety of other foods

Onion, Mushroom, Celery, Capsicum

Preparation :

We do not recommend offering your baby an onion, mushroom, celery or a pepper puree rather we recommend that you add these wonderful veggies to food dishes. Should you decide to offer your baby onions, mushrooms, celery and peppers, please ensure that they are fully cooked, soft, and appropriately sized so as not to pose any choking hazard.

It is most important to cook mushrooms for your baby's food. Mushrooms as we all know are fungi and cooking helps ensure their safety.


These veggies do not pose a high allergy risk however there may be certain digestive issues in a sensitive or delicate tummy. We think that these veggies are best served in soups, casseroles, noodle/rice dishes.

Age for Introduction :

These veggies may be sautéed and added to your child's food between 8-10 months old.

Confirm 我是五牙人!!!

.
I got 1 tooth, 2 teeth, 3 teeth, 4 teeth, 5 teeth....Total 5 teeth...Yeah~~I'm 五牙人!!!
..
Tiffy's 5th teeth has showed its face....It's the lateral incisor, which grows at upper gum. Emmm....no wonder her bite is even more painful now.
.
Recently, Tiffy always refuse to open her mouth and let me do the checking, or clean her tongue and mouth during bath time....So the only option I have is to play the 'bite mummy's finger' game with her and pop my finger into her mouth. It does not work everytime, she's getting smarter and know it's my trick, aiks!!! Anyway, she can really bite hard nowaday. I have to be extra careful when I'm cleaning, feeding or checking on her teeth.

Mozzy bite

Another big mozzy bite on Tiffy's forehead....Aiks!!! why mozzies like to bite Tiffy...Sometimes, after the mozzy bites her, the bitten area will swell up and a small bubble appears. This then breaks and leaves black marks. AND, the worst part is...It takes weeks for the black mark to fade....
.
.
To prevent another big big mozzy bites and leaving so many black marks on Tiffy's skin....We got her a mosquito net...Hopefully, it will be better to prevent the mozzy to leave its 'footprint' on Tiffy's face, foots and hands....
.

My territory

Finally, I got my own territory....

It's not too big not too small, with lot of my favourite 'ogaganashigana' toys....Sitting and playing in it is fun and comfortable, as mummy put a small cushion in my seat so that my butt wont hurt sitting in it for too long hours. Of course, with my own territory, all of my toys will not be invaded or runaway too far....Besides all these, grandpa and grandma will not worry too much that I'll fall back or fall aside when I'm too concentrating with my toys....

Let me introduce my very own territory....




.
My 3 feets * 2 feets territory....'SAFE, SECURE AND COMFORTABLE' :D

Newspaper war

When Tiffy is letting alone in her walker in the living room...Mess up the newspaper is her favourite activity....


She enjoys stepping on the newspaper and use her feet to mess it up, and then tear it into pieces and pieces....leaving all the black printing ink on her palm and feet...

video

.

Besides newspaper which she steal it without permission, sometimes I do give her some old magazine to tear too....this can keep her quiet and entertained for quite a while...Of course, to tidy up the war zone after that is really making me 'big head'....

If you're happy....

If you're happy and you know it, Clap your hands. Clap-clap

If you're happy and you know it, Clap your hands. Clap-clap

If you're happy and you know it, And you really want to show it.

If you're happy and you know it, Clap your hands. Clap-clap

.

This is the song that Tiffy listen to it the most recently...She always clap her hands whenever she hear this song...Until an extent that she cant control herself to clap hands once the music is played....She claps her hands while she's eating, she claps while she's bathing, she claps while she's playing, she claps while someone's carrying her....

.

. video

.

Hmmm....although I doubt if she understands the meaning of the song, but I suppose she's happy when she claps her hands....just like the song, ''If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands''.
