As a stay-at-home-mum, I am fortunate to witness every smile, wave, babble and milestone Theo has achieved. Our baby is growing ever so quickly. There are times when I think he’s more like a toddler than baby. It seems like he already has a mind of his own and knows what he wants (although it’s usually what I DON’T want him to do!).
In the past three weeks in Singapore, it feels as though he has learned so much. Waving hello and goodbye, understanding certain words, giving hi-5s, leaning in for kisses, being more affectionate by crawling up to people for hugs, tapping his head to say “Ai yah” (translates to “Oh no” in English), stacking cups with help, calling Ah Kong and Ah Ma in his own unique way and so much more! It’s amazing how a little human being born helpless and dependent can turn out to be so brilliant in 11 months!
I’ve lost count of the number of times in the past 11 months when Theo has driven me up the wall. However, this boy is just so fun to be with. He’s ever so cheery (given that he’s had enough sleep, fed and changed). Everyday we discover more of his personality. I’m beginning to think that he’s probably a little insane – just like his parents.
Happy 11 Months old, my little man. Mama and Papa are so proud of you for being who you are. We just want you to be healthy, happy and be filled with lots of love.
