at 9 months


time passes by so fast. soon ariff will be celebrating his first birthday.

at 9 months, ariff -
can pull himself up to a standing, he can even let go of one hand and hold on with only one;

loves waking up in the morning to everyone's voices - he will call out from his cot, stand and smile at everyone;

can eat rice now - real adult rice. at home we still give him nestum but he gets bored very fast. the downside about him eating rice is that we dont have endless supply of soup to mix the rice with. guess i have to increase the portion i make on weekends;

is getting to be rougher. he doesnt back down from fights with abang long and abang. if his toys are snatched from him, he will growl and snatch back;

loves being part of the makan crowd. if abang long and abang are munching, he'd better have some too, if not he will growl and growl;

ah...ariff growls. he makes the cutest sound when he wants to get someone's attention - be it when he's lonely or angry or happy - he will growl;

loves his bathtime. when he's after a toy outside the bathtub, he will throw himself out of the bathtub without a single thought;

loves his car seat. he will look out to the world passing by and ignore the banter between abang long and abang. unless one of them brings out a cookie;

has 4 teeth now. his 3rd and 4th came out the same time on 28 june 2008.
