I Like to Move It Move It - Diary of an 8 Months Old Baby | Baby & Beyond

This post is part of a series of posts I am writing titled Diary of a Baby chronicling the candid confessions of a baby from 0 to 2 years old.

Age: 8 months old

 

Ok Diary, I know you are probably mad at me because I haven’t written to you in a while. But you’ll forgive me when I tell you about these two incredible milestones I accomplished in one month.

#1. Crawling! Yes I can crawl now. I can move from one place to another without waiting for someone to pick me up.

So Mamma had settled me on my playmat with my toys, as she usually does when she has some work around the room. My favourite piano was just out of my reach (I have a feeling she had done this on purpose..hmmm). I tried to reach out for it and next thing you know, I’m moving on my own! Without anybody’s help too!

Hmm…my favourite piano is just out of my reach…I have a feeling this has been done on purpose!

 

#2. And what’s more, I can stand up too, albeit with some support! I cannot even begin to tell you how liberating it is! Can’t reach my favourite toy? Just crawl to it and grab it. Mamma not coming when I’m screaming for her? Just crawl to her. Annoying aunty coming to pull my cheeks again? Just crawl away! See an ant on the floor whom I must make conversation with? Just crawl to it! Someone’s kept all the cutlery out of my reach? Just crawl to it, pull myself up and bring it all crashing down. Ok no one seemed particularly pleased about those last two though.

Haha…The adults thought they had outsmarted me by keeping all this interesting-looking stuff out of my reach. Well not any more!

 

But I’m having so much fun exploring the world on my own terms. Although as usual the adults have to play spoilsport here. All of a sudden I see fences and locks and tapes coming up in places where I am sure they weren’t there before. I’ll have to find a way around these too now. I’ll let you know how it works out.

 

Until then,

    I am falling in love with the diary of this baby. So adorable. Great work, Mahak! You have depicted everything accurate from a baby’s point of view.
