8 months he is!!

An UPDATE:
His weights 9.1 kg now :)

Yup, my precious prince turned 8 month old on the first day of Chinese New Year i.e. yesterday. I've yet to know his weight till his next visit to the clinic on Monday. So will update on that later.

As for his milestones, let's see his progress according to "What to expect the first year" by Murkoff et al (2003) :

By eight months, your baby... should be able to:

  • bear some weight on legs when held uprignt - checked
  • feed self a cracker - haven't let him try that but I do feed him crackers and I think he will be able to feed himself a cracker (I'm just worried about being messy hehe...)
  • rake with fingers and object and pick it up in fist - checked

  • turn in the direction of voice - checked
  • look for a dropped object - checked

  • ...will probably be able to:
    • pass a cube or other object from one hand to the other - checked
    • stand holding on to someone or something - checked
    • object if you try to take a toy away - checked
    • work to get a toy that's out of reach - checked
    • play peekabo - checked
    • get into a position from stomach - only to and fro from stomach to lying on his back
    ...may possible be able to:
    • creep or crawl - not yet
    • pull up to standing position from sitting - not yet
    So I guess my boy is doing okay and oh BTW, he has learned a new "skill" about 3 days ago....I'll let the picture below describe his so-called new acquired "skill" ;p
