Today I discovered several growing milestones of Hudson while playing with him before/after our Yorkshire Christmas tea party. He can really express himself now. When Smiley was saying something to him, he gave a sad frown. He also speaks a lot now: a cute cooing “ah-woo/ou[ch]-oo/” and “ern.” Super cute. #cooingwords
Today, after he had milk and nap in the late afternoon, H still seemed not happy so I thought he must be bored and suggested for us to put out the play mat. He played by himself on the Fisher-Price woodlands mat, lying down and looking at the white tiger for a long time and interacting with the tiger–smiling and talking to it at times. It was really nice because neither of us need to be carrying him all the time. It’s such a milestone because previously he could only play by himself for few minutes and he would start moving more agitatedly and ask to be carried. #playingbyhimself
After he played with the tiger for a long time, we also gave him tummy time because wai po told me it’s time to do tummy time every day. He was not happy at first and we were about to flip him back but we let him stay there for a few more seconds and he was able to lift his head/neck!, albeit still not happy being in the position because he has to work hard. We praised him for the good job. #tummytime
I think he may be staying up for longer periods too during daytime. He is really growing up!Let’s play together next time!
