A friend of hers told everyone that she had bacte-rial meningit-is and posted on here asking for everyone to pray for her. I assume the friend was genuinely taken in. Updates then came 'via her husband' about her condition, which the friend relayed on here. Including a plane hospital transfer, being put on various wonderdrugs, slipping in and out of coma, life support etc. It was clearly a load of BS because one day they would post about her being on life support, then then next it would be 'we need to decide whether to put her on life support'. Wobbls posted a load of stuff about their investigation which was v amusing to read.
anyway Rach - finally got my wonder weeks book upstairs while Ollie is napping.
So going by Charlie being 9 mths will look at ww 37 (between 32 and 42 weeks) after this developmental stage skills emerging are (and some will have lots of ticks and some areas may be unticked)
Recognising animals and objects:
shows that can recognise a category eg animals in rl,toys and pictures
shows that he can distinguish shapes
shows that he thinks something is dirty
shows that he thinks something is fun or good by making a characteristic sound or movement
shows that he understands the name of animals or objects (eg will look for it if you ask where it is)
repeats words after you now and then
Recognising people as people
relates more to other people with sounds and gestures
imitates other people more often
clearly wants to play games with people more often
calls family members - each might have their own sound or gesture
recognising people in different circumstances
makes silly faces to his mirror image and laughs
looks at a thing or person in the room and then looks for it or them in the mirror
shows jealousy when another child gets mummy's attention
comforts a cuddly toy when dropped or thrown
acts extra sweet when wants something
exaggerates mood to let everyone know how he is feeling
starts to cry when he sees another child cry
can initiate a game by himself eg peepo
uses bottle to feed mummy
asks mummy to sing a song and claps along
asks to play hide and seek (eg by crawling behind something)
asks to play building blocks by handing you a block
Will do the toys and activities next time :-)
Ollie by no way had everything ticked and the 1st section only 2 were ticked - have loved the ww book - when Ollie is going through a fussy phase we look it up and it is amazing to see him develop!
1 & 1/2 years - it's great, it explains what development is going on as they learn to perceive the world and their understanding develops. It advises when to expect fussy phases which lead up to a developmental leap, what to look out for, skills they develop and toys and games to help and encourage them- it's scarily accurate - and you can see where your lo is developing faster and slower.
Ollie is definitely more of a mover than communicator but I think he's relatively on time - some things come easy and some slower.
He is going through a cute phase so he blows kisses and high 5's, takes you to the thing he wants you to do, he had some words before christmas but went quiet on that front for a bit but very recently some words coming back, he plays nicely by himself but wants you near, he loves exploring and climbs and walks everywhere, he eats with a preloaded spoon and eats most food - still no sttn tho
