My Tottering Penguin

031211_02He’s still not walking yet but I’m sure he’s now seeing walking as a good tool of transportation (after being carried and rushed around of course). Over the weekend, he started to pull himself up on his little wooden wagon and can walk around all by himself. He was giggling to himself the first time he showed me as he charged towards me on his wagon. Previously when he walked with it, we were always right behind him and trying to slow the pace in case he slips and fall flat on his face or worse… The funny thing is watching him waddle around like a penguin and grinning from ear to ear at the same time (him, not us)

He’s been talking a lot and using his own baby words consistently. Now if only we can figure out what he’s trying to say. Sometimes I vacillate between worrying about him and feeling reassured. I guess this is the point where I feel a little relieved. I’m having a bet with his dad about when he’s finally going to start walking. I’m betting o end May while J is saying second half of April. We’ll see how that goes. At least now, he doesn’t mind his little Pediped shoes anymore. And it seems like he’ll outgrow them soon. Ouch, baby shoes are definitely painful to the pocket, especially considering how often they have to change them. The leather ones easily cost a cool $60 from retail stores though I bought the current ones from overseas for a good discount.

With the likelihood of going overseas, I’m starting to seriously think about how to cut our expenses especially when we are there. His stipend will likely only cover rent and our health insurance so the rest of the living expenses will have to come out of our savings. At least we’re not going into debt over this. Anyway, we’ll know for sure in one month’s time but it looks like we’ll be having our little adventure soon.
