Tomoe’s been pretty active lately with her development. Even though she’s had a cold, and is only now recovering from it, she kept going as if she was never sick. She’s almost achieved some milestones, though.
Her ability to walk keeps improving. She’s been attempting to walk on her own recently, without us helping her. She keeps falling over, though. She’s managed one or two steps only, but she should be walking soon.
She’s also been getting closer to clapping. That’s normally a 10 month milestone, but she hasn’t mastered this skill yet. She did almost clap a couple days ago. Her hands came together instead of moving her arms up and down.
But there’s one thing that she’s now doing that is an achievement. She’s hugging! Sometimes she wants to be picked up and holds her arms up, but other times, she’ll grab hold of my waist and hug. She also holds onto me very well while I’m holding her.
Last week, she had her last vaccination for a while. This one was for polio. Next year, she’ll get some booster shots, but not at the frequency she’s received shots in the past few months. And the great thing is, she never cried once!
Now, enjoy some pictures!
