Yassy’s note:Liam’s first year: Day 255 – Day 264

In the previous entry titled “Yassy’s note: Liam in NICU;day 8- day 14“, I wrote Liam came to our family about 3 weeks early (36 weeks and 2 days) and he has spent next 3 weeks in NICU.

He was tiny little baby; 18″ tall, weighing 5 lb 6 oz…

Day 257..

Liam had Okra for the first time. Since he liked it so much that when I was trying to feed from potato dish, he tried to grab the container of this food and tried to eat it off from the container directly,lol.

Liam tried Okra for the first time….
 
Dinner for him was…. somen noodle with sea bass, cabbage soup and .. strawberry as dessert.
 
Day 260..
 
Liam sometimes start reaching for the food container after finish eating. I guess the container is good size for him to hold. He likes to grab it,bang it against the food tray and then…. toss onto the floor,which makes Palette runs for life and go hide under the bed. She hates Liam tossing toys around from high chair.
 
Do you know why babies likes to toss things to floors?
 
From eyes of adults, the act looks like they did on purpose maybe because no matter how many times you try to pick things up and give it back to them like spoon or plates,they tend to toss it again and again..
 
From eyes of babies, very first time, they drops spoon or plate to the floor by accident. Then, if your house was like wooded floor for example, it also makes sound of dropping more easily. Even on carpeted floor, it still makes noise when those drops. So, babies could think when they dropped items to floor, it made sound. Second time around, they wonder if they tries again, if it makes the same sound when they drop things to the floor so they try and see.
 
Then they notice dropping items indeed makes sound. Therefore, they starts try dropping items over and over again and yo go back and forth between kitchen sink and their high chair spot,lol. Part of growing issue of babies all mothers and fathers face.

Day 262..

Liam started voicing “dadada…bbababa”

Things that I read from Japanese magazine says… 0-4 months a,u e o etc..cooing,

4 month; vowel sound like a, 5 months; consonant practice pa,ki,pu, and 6 months; man-man-man; words are linked together .Then, 8 months;pa,ma sounds that will be made by closing lips.

10 months; being able to say “wan wan” for example (wan wan is the sound of dog barking ) ; taking pause in between one word,it says.

According to the research in Japan, top word the baby ‘s first word is “ma-n-ma;meaning “meal” and mama is 4th ranking, papa is 8th ranking.

Stay tuned for more Liam’s story…
