The Walkacholic

Back! Finally after 2 busy weeks. ๐Ÿ™‚ With the recent new government cooling of properties measures, it had been a busy 2 weeks coupled with courses to attend as well.

ย 

Of course, nothing beats coming home to see a smiling Xi En. ๐Ÿ™‚

ย 

Xi En is becoming more and more active. He is what I called a โ€œwalkacholicโ€ now! He loves to walk walkย walk walkย walk walkโ€ฆ almost non-stop! He cannot walk on his own yet. But he sure is trying hard! He uses the following to help him take his first steps out:

ย 

1) Baby walker

This is probably his favourite till now as he can zoom around freely. ๐Ÿ™‚

2) Baby Toy Walker

He needs assistance in pushing this around. So not quite his favourite but he loves playing with it stationery.

3) Anyoneโ€™s 2 hands

ย 

All of us take turns to hold his 2 hands up (so we wonโ€™t break our backs!) and walk him around. He will be groping around for hands when he wants to stand and walk this way.

4) Anyoneโ€™s 1 hand

We are trying to advance him to this stage as the physiotherapist told us that by his corrected 1 yearโ€™s birthday, he should be able to walk assisted with 1 hand. But he is not quite stable in this mode yet. I am always worried that he might twist his hand while walking this way!

5) Grandmaโ€™s invented way of walking โ€“ with Daddyโ€™s swirl roller chair!

Xi En canโ€™t walk too far in this as the legs of the chair kept getting in the way. But it is sure one innovative method! ๐Ÿ˜›

Finally, one video of Xi En’ taking his first independent few steps. Sweet success of balancing by himself and trotting forward! Well done baby! ๐Ÿ™‚
