How far has she progressed?

Congratulations!
Your baby's birth date was
Friday, October 02, 2009

Your conception date was most likely 1/9/2009
And your baby is 65 days old!

 

New things I found out today from one of the parenting websites (and quite impressive how they projected the baby's future) are :

 

  • Your baby's half birthday is April 2
  • Your baby's birthstone is Opal (Hope)
  • Your baby's Astrological Sign is Libra
  • Your baby's Flower is Calendula or Cosmos (White, Yellow and Varied)
  • Your baby was born in the Chinese Year of The Brown Earth Cow
  • Your baby will start kindergarten in 2014, be old enough to drive a car in 2025, finish high school in 2027, and will graduate from college with the class of 2031, give or take a year. Can you imagine?
  • This time last year you weren't even pregnant yet!

Here are list of progress for her :

1. By the end of month one a baby typically:

  • Lifts head for short periods of time (checked!)
  • Moves head from side to side (checked!)
  • Prefers the human face to other shapes (checked!)
  • Makes jerky, arm movements (checked!)
  • Brings hands to face (checked!)
  • Has strong reflex movements (checked!)
  • Can focus on items 8 to 12 inches away (checked!)
  • May turn towards familiar sounds or voices (checked!)
  • Responds to loud sounds (checked!)
  • Blinks at bright lights (checked!)

2. By the end of month two a baby typically:

  • Smiles (checked! – A LOT!!)
  • Tracks objects with his eyes (checked! – especially when her mama walks by)
  • Makes noises other than crying (checked! – not usually cries, most of the time merengek-type of sound)
  • May repeat vowel noises, such as "ah" or "ooh" (checked!)

3. By the end of month three a baby typically:

  • Raises head and chest when put on tummy (checked! – by first month. She does have a strong bone – noticed by her grandma, her babysitter n by a lot of people)
  • Lifts head up 45 degrees (checked!)
  • Kicks and straightens legs when on back (checked!- she can even do the exercise, moving her whole body during the legs pushing exercise)
  • Open and shuts hands (checked! – esp when I massage her fingers)
  • Pushes down with legs when placed on a hard surface (checked!- yup, esp during bathing. She doesn't want to lie on her back)
  • Reaches for dangling objects
  • Grasps and shakes hand toys
  • Tracks moving objects(checked!)
  • Begins to imitate sounds (checked!)
  • Recognizes familiar objects and people, even at a distance (checked!)
  • Begins to develop a social smile (checked! Usually early in the morning n before sleep – she wants to hear some bedtime stories or storytell by herself to her mom before dozes off)
  • Begins to develop hand-eye coordination
  • Brings both hands together (checked!)
  • Interested in circular and spiral patterns
  • Kicks legs energetically (checked!)
  • Holds head up with control

What we can do:

§                  Hold and cuddle your baby as much as you can

§                  Keep up the talking in a sing-song fashion

§                  Massage his body regularly

§                  Hold out toys to him so that he tries to hold them (because his hand-eye-coordination is poor he will not be able to judge the distance between an abject and his hand and will be unable to hold something you offer him)

§                  Place your baby on a bouncer or hold her against your shoulder so as to exercise her neck muscles
