Tried to get Gio to stand, with some measure of success. He even walked a few steps, quickly moving to where he could hold something.
22nd Jan 2014 – Weight
Dropped off my wife at the salon then went with Gio to the clinic for his weigh-in.
As usual, he was sweating in the car seat, so I had unbuttoned his romper and removed his arms from it, leaving him bare-chested. The doctor happened to come out as I was about to get him out of the car. We know each other, so we chatted a little.
“Why have his clothes been removed?” he asked.
“He’s sweating!” I replied.
I carried Gio to the reception.
There was a lady there who had also brought a child.
“Fever, eh?” she said to me.
“No, no, he was just hot.”
The lady behind the counter asked “Why have his clothes been removed?”
When I went into the clinic checkup area itself, the nurse also asked why his clothes had been removed.
Four times, the same question.
Is it really that strange to see a child bare-chested?
Gio weighs 11 kilos. In other words, since 8 weeks ago, he has gained 300 grammes!
You could actually say he has gained 300 grammes in 12 weeks, since he attained 10.7 kilos 12 weeks ago.
You could also say he has gained 500 grammes in 20 weeks.

My wife later asked me if her efforts to feed him avocado had paid off. I told her that her efforts had helped in Gio’s brain development 🙂
While waiting for my wife to finish at the salon, I went with Gio to look at ride-on cars at Nakumatt.
Back home, we tried some more to get Gio to walk.
