Today Daryl boy took his first steps. What an exciting time for us as his parents and grandparents.
Finally he is able to stand on his own two feet. One more step towards independence.
It comes at a good time too, because baby Caleb will be born in a couple of days.
Poey Chin joked that he wants to get our attention so he’s doing some new tricks haha.
I’ve captured a video of him walking, mashed with a video showing when he stood up for the first time a few months back.
Click here if you can’t see the video embedded below.
On January 1st this year, baby Daryl crawled for the first time! He was seven months old.
I quickly started recording the action on my phone, we didn’t even have time to turn on brighter lights.
Now Daryl can sit up from a lying down position, and he can pull himself up the side of his baby crib to a kneeling position.
He has also started saying his first words, da-da (that’s me!), ma-ma and mum-mum referring to food.
In terms of personality, he is starting to get more assertive. He will cry for attention and food. He is starting to crawl around the house looking for either Poey Chin or myself.
He’s also grown quite tough. We let Rachel and Daryl play for short periods of time now without worrying that Rachel might accidentally hurt him.
A short home video to share with you today. Baby Daryl is laughing while being entertained by mummy and Rachel.
To all my dear readers,
2008 has been amazing. The biggest thing to happen was meeting baby Rachel and learning to be a parent.
Through it all, I thank you dear readers for reading my stories, for all your wisdom and advice.
I leave you with this video of Mr Bean conducting a christmas brass quartet.
Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.
See you in 2009.
From Adino, Poey Chin and baby Rachel.
