Jerald at 7 Months Old

Jerald turned 7 months old on 28 August 2016.

As of 22 August 2016, he weighed 7.7kg and was 64cm in length (he did not seem to have grown longer). There was an immunisation jab this month.

His development updates:
  • While on his tummy, he can push himself to face different directions.
  • He loves gnawing on our fingers for sometime now. Perhaps he is teething.
  • He prefers being upright than lying down.
  • He likes to reach out and try to grab things.

Jerald at 5 Months Old

Jerald turned 5 months old on 28 June 2016.

As of 15 June 2016 (4.5 months), he weighed 6.7kg and was 62cm in length. No immunisation jab this month.

His development updates:
  • He can lift his head while on his tummy.
  • After consultation with a paediatric ophthalmologist for his earlier delay in tracking objects, the MRI scan is now not necessary.
  • When lying down on his back, he actively flips over on his tummy and sometimes back on his back again.
  • He is making screaming sounds which we think is his way of trying to communicate something.
  • He is showing signs of being sticky to certain people, resisting being carried by strangers.
