the Cacing Diaries #16

Seven months and counting

I am sure every parents feel this. Raising kids is sweet pain. So people say that the most relaxed time is when babies are in their mid-year. Maybe so. Cacing is getting naughty but she still cannot walk or crawl so at least she cannot not run all over the place yet. At seven months, Cacing is having lots of fun with anything. Her favorite toy, it seems, is a blown up plastic shopping bag, in whatever size as long as it is inflated. On the other hand, her attention span is blink in time. One minute she enjoys being cradled in your arms, the next she’ll yelp to get free.

Cacing knows the power of the smile. She dispenses smiles to please and be pleased in return. She smiles right before a bath when lying on her tub. She smiles when she’s about to be fed. When she’s bored, she’ll squeal and holler in protest so that she’ll be taken out of the house. Then she’d give you a smile once she’s free from the confines of space.

There are a few more milestones that I have noted of my dear child. She is becoming nimble with her fingers. Fine motor skills, my wife says. She could easily pick up dropped objects like a ball.

She enjoys peekaboo and squeals loudly and delightfully when play with her. Another favorite pasttime is her experimentation with her hands, closing and opening them in succession.

She still cannot crawl though. Lazy I think she is. As a consolation, she now can lie on her stomach for more than 10 minutes if we diverted her attention with toys. Soon, I hope she can sit on her own. However, and we are proud of her for this, Cacing loves to practice walking. We just have to lift her by her arms and amble her slowly across the floor while she pretends to walk.

I’ve heard that physically girls develop a bit late than boys. Fine with me. Besides boys can’t have long hair which can be fiddled the way Cacing hair can.

So really, this post is just a reason to show her off. She’s cute even when her hair is baaaaaad.
