***Daanya @ 8 & 9 months***

This is definitely without any doubt a backdated post. I will make it a brief one and let pictures do the talking or rather blogging...

My darling Daanya's development or milestones have made me so proud. she is now able to stand on her own but lacks the confidence to do so...she is still taking 8 oz of milk and sometimes she can go on from 10-13 depending on the kind of day she had. She is now taking solids and loves the Holle organic baby food range that mommy buys for her especially pumpkin and rice (mommy stopped buying gerber eversince she found out that it is not gluten-free). Daanya loves her apple juice from Heinz to take with her food and also the occasional ribena that mommy gives (luckily enough she is not prone to go into "excessive happiness" mode every time she takes her ribena in!!!**phew**). She is now able to hold her milk bottle all on her own and chucks it everytime she is done...

Oh, and she now has 2 very sharp front teeth in which she uses mommy's fingers as her tooth sharpener...*sigh*. She has also learned some vocab..of course she cannot say them yet but she knows what they are...you see she has these bath toys that we got her from tesco and it comes in the shapes of animals...we got her a red seal, a green frog (of which she knows as her Mr. frog), a blue dolphin and a green hippo. put this in line she is able to pick out those that we call out...like" where's your hippo daanya?" she will turn pick up the green hippo...and so on...she somehow turned out to be a big Barney fan and gets excited when we turn the dvd on and would pay full attention when the songs from the dvd comes on. She can also do they "Allahuakbar" action like we do in our prayers (thought by the Taman Tun clan, hehehe) and would clap her hands whenever we say "clever girl!".

She has just learned the "bye-bye" action and every time she is in a car or a car drives by she would just do the "bye-bye" action. Turning 9 months, mummy can see that she is very picky to whom she chose to cling to though she clings on me the most and never let me out of her sight...just going to the loo for a split second and she would wail and cry...she loves being in the presence of her mummy and daddy and somehow behaves better when under our care. She is recognizing faces now and loves the fact that she is learning on "cause and effect" where she would do something like "slapping-daddy-on-his-face-action" and see how daddy would react and when daddy reacts a certain way, she would laugh and repeat it and laugh again....*sigh*

I feel that time passes so fast...in just 3 months she will be one...and I am already missing the days before she learned to crawl, to sit, to stand, the days when she was unable to throw her voice (you cannot imagine how big her voice is and how loud she can be now....especially if she wakes up at 6:30 in the morning and alerting the whole of bukit jelutong to wake up with her!!)those times when she would take her milk and sleep right after...I feel that they grow up too fast...and this makes me feel sad that it is going to be soon that she jumps off the car and head for school and demands mummy and daddy for allowance money..hahhahahaha....
