Moses at 14 Months

The last two months have been full of adventure as Moses gets more independent. He enjoys running around the house, walking and exploring the streets of our neighbourhood with us, and eating (however messily) with a spoon or fork. He is talking gibberish more often including “oo’s” and “aa’s” and only says “Mamamama!” when he is frustrated. He also says “uh oh” after he drops something (or before he is planning to drop something) and “brm brmmmm” for the sound of a car. He understands and can follow simple instructions in English and French like putting his dirty clothes in the laundry basket, throwing something in the garbage bin, or putting a toy away on the shelf.

Because of his newfound independence we have had to keep an even closer eye on him. This month he started climbing onto our bed, the couches, and the kitchen chairs on his own and so now nothing on the table is out of his reach! His movement has increased but his spatial awareness and balance are still lacking and so we are constantly reaching out to catch him when he falls. One time I was not close by enough to catch him and he hit his head against the armrest of our couch and needed four stitches! It was a scary event as fairly new parents and we are thankful that he recovered well. Knowing Moses, I’m sure it won’t be the last tumble.
