I've got a new exercise
kid kit to help me keep fit. Its called ..... BABY!
Baby has decided all of a sudden (almost overnight) that its much more fun to walk than crawl. Its even more fun to climb! He scrambles up chairs and other furniture in a jiffy and sits there balanced precariously at the edge of a chair or footstool while mummy rushes to his side (heart skipping a few beats) to make sure he does not fall off. (Hence... the exercise.)
He loves seeing the world from this new perspective. Its like a whole new world has been opened up to him. Everything looks different now.
Over the weekend, we let him walk everywhere outdoors. At the mall, at the park, at grandpas house and he is absolutely enjoying himself. The little explorer walked and looked around, and walked and looked around with wonder and amazement.
He walked all over the mall and was so tired after that he didn't wait to get home to have his nap, he fell alseep on daddy's shoulders. (*smiles*)
The best part is toddler gets to enjoy these developments too. "Mummy! Baby has 8 teeth now." she says excitedly as we count them together. "Mummy, baby is bigger and bigger now and can walk already. I take baby kai-kai (for a walk)." she says as she
guides pulls him by the hands and walks all over the house.
Baby is wearing Size 3 shoes now. Soon he will fit into toddlers hand me downs size 4 squeaky shoes and annoy all the neighbours. Haha. Toddler on the other hand just got shoes that lights up at the soles when she strides about. When we were having our bedtime chit chat she told me "Mummy, I want to buy shoes for daddy, baby and mummy also. Daddy and baby's shoes old already. I want to buy shoes with lights." Hahaha. Can you imagine a whole family of clowns wearing shoes that lights up? I am sure toddler will just love it. I am not sure our neighbours will though. Shoes that squeaks, lights up and what next? Heelys? Never! I hate heelys!
