Putting On His Sandals...

~ Posted on Monday, July 19, 2010 at 12:32 AM ~

Look what I discovered a few days ago...

Yeap... At 16.5 months old, my little man is trying on his sandals...

It was a hand-me-down sandals from my ex-colleague (*Thanks Winnie!) but still looks brand new! Anyway, I kept it for sometime now cos' I thought Ben is not ready for it yet. I mean, he does wear his shoes (Velcro type) when we bring him for walking or when we were out during our family outing but Ben has never try on a sandals. One that he has to slip his own foot into it and press with his toes to keep the sandals from sliding or coming off his foot.

A milestone I would say!

I just stood behind and let him fiddle around with the sandals..

I wanted to see whether he can figure out which is for left foot and which is for right foot. Hehehe...

Obviously, my son is very intrigued with this new sensation and discovery...

Else he would be running off elsewhere playing other things instead of still standing there trying to put on the sandals...

When he managed to put on one of the sandal, he lifted up his foot to examine it.

It's like he's wondering what is this new 'toy' on his foot...

Before I managed to compliment and praise him for what he did, he gave me his other sandal.

And then he limped off with the sandal which is still on his other foot and continued playing with his other toys.

The day after this incident, Ben is pretty much still comfortable with wearing only one of the sandal. My theory is he felt more secured and safe if one of his foot can still touch and feels the ground/floor, hence the reason why he only wore one of the sandal.

But after a few more tries and 1 more day passed, Ben got used to wearing the sandals, and voila!

Ben wearing the sandals correctly and walking around at our porch.

Now if we mentioned 'Let's go! Get your sandals', he'll run off and looks for his sandals and quickly put it on so that he can go out with us.

Cute!

All by himself... Cool

A Day at the Park...

Here are some of the latest pictures of our recent family outing at the park again:

Ben getting all excited the moment we stepped right into the park area. And yeah, he's in pink again hahaha... (* Note: For those of you who don't understand why I say this, read my previous post on "Pink is for Boys, Blue is for Girls!")

Ben hinting he wants to play in the slide. What we always do is put him right at the top, hold him by his armpits and slide him down.

I don't know the name of this but you're supposed to hold on to the metal handle and sort of slide yourself to and fro the railings...

Ben having a go at walking on the field...

And he runs off further in and hubby had to chase after him to stop him from walking further as we realised there are dog poos all over the field. Yeah, some really irresponsible people who walks their dogs in the park but don't have the basic manners to clean and bag up their dog poos. Sigh...

We left at 7pm, before the mosquitoes started their blood sucking missions. Nice sunset sky huh?
