Talking about child's development milestones, every child has different development progress.
We could not compare the progress between our child and the rest of other children at their same age. However, there would be a very reasonable timeline for them. As a mother, every single new development is such a happy moment. Nothing can describe how happy you are when your child started to crawl, cruise, stand, and his first smile? =)
The delightful moment goes on when now he is able to walk. Jatuh bangun jatuh tu perkara biasa sayang. courage kene kuat untuk tros bangun dan cuba lagi. and now, duh... u have to chase him everywhere. putting on diapers has become more difficult.haha. asek nak main nyorok2. Since he is 1 year old, he likes to play hide-and-seek. Kita pon kenelah pura2 carik dia tepi langsir ke, tepi meja ke, bawah kerusi ke, "Haikal oh haikal. mane haikal ni?" and sambil tu bila kita jeling dia, dia seakan2 tunggu kita sergah dia "Ni dia Haikal! dah jumpa dia!" =)
7 signs that your child loves you
1. He mirrors your face: Your facial expressions are more
contagious to your child than the freshest virus at daycare. This is why
he'll often smile when you smile or look anxious when you're afraid.
This mirroring begins in the newborn period, but increases dramatically
between the ages of 9 and 18 months, says Karp.
2. He takes his cues from you: How would your 1-year-old
react to an elephant frying an egg in the kitchen? Chances are, she'd
look to you. The world can be a confusing and surprising place for your
little one, and she uses your reactions to make sense of it. She loves
you and trusts your opinion.
3. He copies your behavior: Does your little guy try to
open the door with your keys? Does he "fix" his hair in the mirror, just
like you? "They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery – but
for toddlers, it's also a sincere form of respect and love," says Karp.
4. He engages with you: The back-and-forth that started
during babyhood is much more sophisticated now. Your toddler wants to
answer your questions, witness your reaction to what she's doing, and
tell you (in her own way) about her ideas. Known as reciprocal social
attention, this is a sign of your toddler's attachment and confidence in
5. He uses you as home base: In a new environment, your
toddler may alternate between exploring and running back to snuggle in
your lap. It's a sure sign of trust and attachment, says psychologist Linda Acredolo. You're a safe, reassuring place for him to return to.
6. He turns to you for rescue:
You're walking through the park when a big dog runs up to your toddler. He raises his arms for you to pick him up and hold him close. He
trusts you to help him, and that's a way of showing love, says parent
educator Mary Sheedy Kurcinka.
7. He seeks comfort from you:
Your toddler may hold out his hand so that you can kiss his boo-boo, or
he may cry for you to cuddle him after he trips on the front steps. He
knows he can count on you for comfort, says Acredolo – and he trusts you
enough to let you know when he needs it.
