Lil Dragon: 10 months Update

10 month old

Sweet girl is 10 months old. 
She is definitely more spirited than Tiger was at this age.
I foresee lots of attitude issues.

I really wish I have more waking hours with her.
When I am at work, I miss her so, so much.
Her toothy smile, cheeky grin...
When I get home, Tiger will make sure he has all of my attention.
Much to her dismay.
They get into swatting competitions just to see who gets to sit on my lap.
Luckily I have 2 legs.
Third child?
No, thank you ...

So, our special time is from eleven-ish onwards.
When she is feeding and I get to watch her fall asleep.
Breastfeeding Dragon is when I am most relaxed and peaceful.

Gross Motor
I feel breathless just watching her.
She is very self assured of her abilities.
She is very mobile, either crawling or pushing furnitures about.
She has started taking a few wobbly unaided steps
The most being 5 for now.
I think she overheard hubs commenting that she is slow compared to Tiger.
Very kiasu, this one.

Fine Motor
I give her pegged puzzle boards to practice her pincer grip.
I just lay out 4 sets in front of her.
She started by trying to dislodge the piece by scratching, then she flipped the set over.
After a few attempts, she has now mastered her pincer movements.
Her sheer determination is so delightful to watch.

Still very much a boob addict.
Eats everything under the sun.
Toys, clothes, rubbish, name it.

Diaper changing is sooooo stressful.
She flips, turns, wriggle and does all kinds of tricks just to NOT change.
I tried washing and got poop all over myself.
So this is why people created pull up diapers
It was a true light bulb moment.

OSO the bear
Dumping toys out of boxes, repeatedly
'Eating' this Lego girl

Climbing this Mammut table

She says Mama...whoopee
I love it when she calls me in the morning, when I am still all sleepyhead 
"Mama, mama...."
She flashes a toothy smile and I just melt.

Pet peeves
She absolutely hates it when Tiger and I go upstairs for class without her.
She would call out Eh! Eh! Eh! for hours (prob minutes but guilt prolongs time)
from the bottom of the stairs.
If we ignore her, she would bawl her eyes out.
 If the gate is unlocked, she would crawl up in no time.

So, now, Tiger and I will have to be sneaky and go upstairs very quietly.
No laughing loudly.
No slamming doors 

Can't wait for her to join us in a few months time.
