Baby Milestone: 9 months

So, what's baby up to at 9 months?

  • He is constantly exploring every corner and everything in the house and using his mouth to do so. Sigh! After three kids, I've given up trying to sterialize everything. I'm just banging on him developing a super strong immune system.
  • He has already taken his first few steps. He would walk about 2-3 tiny steps than crash down on his butt.

  • He does a lot of cruising. Watch this video when his cousin came to visit. The two of them couldn't sit on the horse together. So, baby decided himself that he would rather push from behind. Seriously, it was his idea. We all were very tickled by the whole thing because, of the two, he is the younger (but bigger). Hahahah.

  • Another thing Danic can do now – clap hands (or is he signing for ‘more’). Also when we sing “If you’re happy and you know it”, he will do the clap hand and hooray (lift both hands up).
  • He is also saying “pa pa pa”, “ka ka ka” and “ke ke ke”. It seems like he calls his siblings “ka ka”. Occasionally he will yell "mamamama" when he desperately wants me. But he won’t say it if you ask him to.
  • He now has 4 teeth. Two upper and two lower. Watch out for him coz’ he is a biter. Ouch!
  • Besides chewing on books, he has now advanced to trying to open the books, turn the pages and lift the flaps. Way to go boy!
  • He has decided he doesn't like the pacifier. He would pull it out of his mouth, throw it away and scold you at the same time. So, guess I'm one of the lucky ones who don't have to crack my head on how to wean her baby off a pacifier.

What do you get when you put two babies together in a cot?
One bites everything and the other throws everything out. Sigh!


  1. Oh, so cute. Can play-play together already.....Danic, got friend....*smile*

  2. 9 mths already can walk few steps. I bet he can walk b4 his 1st b'day, mummy will be busy then ;)

  3. Big Pumpkin:
    Actually that cousin stays with the grandma in Bukit Mertajam. This was the first time we've met him as we didn't go back during this year's CNY.

    All my kids walk early. My girl also started walking at 9 months. My other boy at 10 months plus. Looks like this baby is no exception. Guess he just can't stand it that his siblings get around faster than him. Wants to walk so he can chase them gua?

  5. HI Lian!
    Thank you so much for adding me to your roll. I am more than happy to do the same. You boy is so huggable!! I can't get over him. I am sure you cannot either. I can not wait to read more of your blog! Now that I have you marked, you can count on it.
    much love to you and yours~d

  6. Wah, Damien is fast eh, already starting to walk at 9 months!

  7. anggie's journel:
    I think some kids just naturally skinny. My other son and my daughter are skinny because they are very active. Hope this baby don't loose all his chubby goodness like his other 2 siblings.

    kitterman's khaos:
    Yes, he is very huggable. My other kids sometimes ask me why I hug baby more than them :)

    Health Freak Mommy:
    Yeah, he is already trying to walk. So cute to watch.
