Seventh month update
Posted by: Sharmila Rajah
Exploring through the tunnel
Shamindra continues to surprise us. Just the other day he started clapping and does so when he’s excited or when he hears his favourite song – Head, Shoulder, Knees and Toes. He smiles, coos and babbles away. He combines vowels and consonants such as da-da, pa-pa.
He’s also started to glide forward on his tummy, working hard to get to a toy that may be out of reach. Though he can sit for longer periods of time but he is yet to sit independently. He rocks back and forth on all fours, lifts his bottom in the air and seems like is almost getting into a sitting position but slumps back down onto the floor.
Peek-a-boo is his favourite game as his understanding of object permanence deepens. Shamindra is fond of giving wet, drooly and gummy kisses which I absolutely love.
