The Walkacholic

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

 

Of course, nothing beats coming home to see a smiling Xi En. 🙂

 

Xi En is becoming more and more active. He is what I called a “walkacholic” now! He loves to walk walk walk walk walk walk… 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:

 

1) Baby walker

This is probably his favourite till now as he can zoom around freely. 🙂

2) Baby Toy Walker

 

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

3) Anyone’s 2 hands

 

All of us take turns to hold his 2 hands up (so we won’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) Anyone’s 1 hand

We are trying to advance him to this stage as the physiotherapist told us that by his corrected 1 year’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) Grandma’s invented way of walking – with Daddy’s swirl roller chair!

Xi En can’t walk too far in this as the legs of the chair kept getting in the way. But it is sure one innovative method! 😛

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