Human Growth & Development
16 September 2013
On September 3, 2013 at 8:42 p.m, I gave birth to a healthy baby boy whom I named Ethan. I had a normal birth and easy birth. I was in labor for about ten hours but it was worth the wait for my handsome son. I was beyond excited about my little bundle of joy.
When Ethan turned three months he became very fussy. I haven’t had as much energy as I have before after Ethan was born. I love my son, but he is a handful. With my partner working and I’m mostly home all the time with Ethan I thought I will never have time for myself anymore, but now during the weekends I’m able to spend time with my little family.
At eight months I noticed that Ethan has become very aware of his surroundings. He began to take two steps and have little goals and had started to plan ahead. He liked to play the hidden object game, where I hide an object and he goes to find it. He had became extremely fussier as he approached nine months. He has become very shy around new people and new things. He was very emotional and it was extra hard to soothe him down. He began to walk early at nine months.
My partner got a high paying job by the time Ethan turned twelve months, he got laid off and we had to move into a low income apartment which baby Ethan wasn’t use to. He was very irritable there and I was happy we didn’t stay there long.
Now at two years Ethan communication skills are growing fast and im proud to say that I have a smart baby.
