17 Months Old

Angel is entering into her 17 months old today and she is growing well. She is 77cm tall (25-50 percentile) and is a hefty 11kg toddler (50-75 percentile). Angel still loves her milk and solid very much and her favourite food is bananas still. Sometimes she would wake up in the middle of the night crying and keep pushing me….. wanting me to make her milk. @~@ I was so sleepy these few weeks coz her appetite seems getting better and better despite she is having solid and 10 oz of milk before she sleeps. She has found a new best friend now – Barney, and she loves watching and dancing along with her Barney DVD. She would even know how to switch the TV channel with the remote control and switch on the TV manually all by herself. Her napping time has switched from 2 naps into 1 nap which means mommy have lesser and lesser time for herself coz the little princess and getting very attached to mommy and even wants mommy to be around while she is watching her DVDs. When we go out, she would want mommy to push her buggy instead of her daddy (if not, she will be crying until she saw my hands on her buggy) and also wants mommy to feed her or else, she would not open her mouth. Naughty little girl she is :)

She has learned to pick up her belongings and would put then back into places before having her lunch, dinner and sleeping time. She would even pick up tiny pieces of biscuits and hair on the floor and dropped them into the bin without being asked to do so. She would also place her shoes and mommy’s shoes back to the shoe cabinet when mommy tells her. I think her tidy-up training is really a success. Her potty training still in the progress and I will be patient with her and give her more time in this area.

So far she is still using her baby language to communicate to us except “muum muum” (eating) and “Ma ….. Ma” (mommy) which she can speak loudly and very clear. She has a total of 8 teeth at this moment and no sign of another tooth is coming out soon. So I guess she still needs to continue feed on her porridge rather then rice for the moment being.

Wow... Looks like Angel is growing to be an obedient and helpful girl ya, esp with the tidying up. That's very good Caroline. Once Angel is trained since young, u will not be worried that next time she'll become an untidy girl. Really salute Angel can drink so much milk ya...

Esmeralda said...

Mummy Gwen said...

Serene said...

Oh Gosh. 10oz milk?! My Xixi only drink 6oz each time, the most 7oz! And i notice Angel is just one month older than Xixi!

Qistina's Mama n Abah said...

Caroline, Angel look so healthy and happy. Good for her. She even want to step on the weighing scale! How sweet ..

Julie said...

She's growing up well. Noticed her chubby thigh.

MommyAngel said...

PeiWun, bb Sean is still young so 5oz is considered very good :) I think this happens since I change her to another formula (goat milk formula) coz she just love it. Last time I give her Enf*pro A+ she only takes 5oz.

Esmeralda, I do hope so but I am afraid she might get fed-up in doing so one day, will she??? I hope not ...... Oh ya, the scale ya, I think I bought it from Metroj*ya.

Mommy Gwen, hahaha .... she is the one pushing her pram ah? so cute!!! My Angel does that too so her buggy will always end up as a shopping cart, LoL.

Hi JT, Angel tall?? Not leh .... I think she is the shortest among all her friends which I am glad coz her daddy is very tall (6 feet 2 inch) so I am a bit afraid that she will end up 6 feet tall later.

Hi Serene, .... hhhmm now I start to feel that she is drinking a bit too much lo since your Xixi only drink 7oz ..... but if we give less, she will crying for more. Thanks to her daddy and grandma, always afraid that she will be in hunger and always 'force' me to increase it every month .... but I think 10oz is the max already coz it's almost an adult cup full of milk that she is taking!!

Hi Sha, hahaha .... she don't want to step on the scale at first but mommy force her by giving her some biscuits, kekeke ....

MommyAngel said...

Hi Julie, ya .... her daddy is very obsessed with her chubby thigh and ask whether I can make her arms as chubby as well ... gosh! But she has slim down quite a lot since she is running around all the time. I think she will loose her chubby thigh real soon too .....

Wonderful Life said...

Wow... 10oz!! She's a milk lover huh? What's the name of Angel's formula??

Thinking of introducing new type of formula to Ryan.

Happy 17 Months ya, Angel!

MommyAngel said...

Hi Doreen, thanks .... Angel's formula is call Karihom* Goat Milk Formula (Original flavour) and it's the one and only goat milk formula for infant in the market (apart from those selling in organic shops and direct selling). The price is a bit expensive compare to normal formula (RM86.90 per 900gram) coz goat doesn't produce much milk, and loaded with DHA, AA, etc just like normal formula.

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Woww..the daddy really a tall man ya. Anyway, if she is really that tall also..is good lah, can be a model.

Esmeralda said...

I think it's all that Goat Milk that has given her extra good appetite ya..

MommyAngel said...

JT, huh?? Girl too tall will looks very scary leh, don't you think so???

Esmeralda, her appetite is always good so I think it's not the goat milk. But she does love the milk very much coz it really does have an extremely 'strong' milk taste!

Esmeralda said...

Caroline.. Good lar. As long as she's healthy, then don't bothered too much if she ever get a big larger than her age, coz eventually she'll shed her weight de. Just make sure that you are giving her nutritious food, and not any junk food.
