Infant Observation

I have spent almost two and half hours on last Saturday to observe carefully an infant of my sister-in-law. He is about nine months old. The infant, William Nguyen is healthy, playful and brave boy. The only feeding him is very difficulty.

When I just came in, I saw William at his room with many toys, such as blocks, bears, automobiles, little bicycles. He was playing with his toys. Then, he heard my voice greeting hello with his mother. He was turn to me and looked at me with his eyes raised up. He seems that I was strange to him, he watched me for a while and later he smiled at me, and clapped his hand. He is not walking yet, but he can stand up by himself without support for long period of time. I said to him “Good boy!” he feels very happy by smile at me. After that, He wants me hold him by raised his hand to me. I hold him for a little bit, and then he turned back to his mother. He is not crying as same as other boy I saw, even I have not met him often, but he still love in me. He likes to play the various toys. The toys must be change whenever he gets bored, if the toys are the same, he will not play anymore by crying and not sit nearby the toys. William can walk step by step while holding the hand of his mother. He also can roll and crawl very fast when he wants to reach objects nearby and put into his mouth. His mother is very tired with him. He is disturbed too much in his room. He wants to touch this and that all the time.

Moreover, He doesn’t want to stay quietly to the mother feed him. The mother must gives him different toys, thus the infant must be eat, if not, he react by his hand when the mother put the spoon of soup in his mouth. The mother said to the boy “ Hey! Eat it, I will give you new toys” The mother gives him a toys which is electric car, then he obey to the mother eat food., he doesn’t like to hold bottle of milk to drink by himself, the mother must be feed him by holding him each time to let him drinking milk. This boy is very hard to change diaper, as the mother changed the diaper for him, he turned his body up side down, his feet were stretch out kicking strongly. William has a significant that as he feels sleepy his hand touching his eyes, crying and not want to play or walk. Then the mother knows that he want to sleep.

William has a very loud smile voice as I touched in his stomach. He is very tickles. He loves to play hide - and- seek, for example, the mother was hide him, then calling by his name, he heard the mother’s voice then he looks for the mother. When he already saw the mother, then he was laughing out loud.

William loves to walk with his mother a lot, therefore throughout each day, the mother often holds, played with, taken on walks by holding his hands. He is so sensitive with the weather, that’s why the mother let him play in the room today, for the weather has windy.

Observation of the infant, it is very fun, and enjoyable. But take good care of the infancy, to me, it is very difficult, therefore, I would like to take Early Child Education class to have more experiences to work with children at home as business or school and also for my own child.

Hi,

Infant Observation

I spent almost two and half hours last Saturday carefully observing an infant of my sister-in-law. He is about nine months old. His name is William Nguyen, and he is a healthy, playful and brave boy. The only difficulty with him is feeding him..

When I first came in, I saw William in his room with many toys, such as blocks, bears, automobiles and little bicycles. He was playing with these toys. Then, he heard my voice greeting his mother. He turned to me and looked at me with his eyes raised. It seemed that I was strange to him. He watched me for a while and later smiled at me and clapped his hands. He is not walking yet, but he can stand up by himself without support for a long period of time. I said to him “Good boy!” He seemed to feel very happy because he smiled at me. After that, he showed me that he wanted me hold him by raising his hands to me. I held him for a little bit, and then he turned back to his mother. He did not cry in the same way as other boys I have seen, even though I had not met him often, but he still seemed to love me. He liked to play with his various toys. They had to be changed whenever he got bored. If they were the same, he would not play anymore, but would cry and not sit near them. William could walk step by step while holding the hand of his mother. He could also roll and crawl very fast when he wanted to reach objects nearby and put them into his mouth. He made his mother very tired. He was restless in his room. He wanted to touch this and that all the time. I've changed your present tense to past tense, to make it seem that you are describing what you observed.

Sorry, I don't have time to edit any more right now.

Best wishes, Clive

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Thanks so much to Clive, I turn in this homework on next week, if you have time help me edit it, if not, it is all right, because English grammar is so hard, if you edit I know my errors that will make me easy remember. Again thanks

I really love this EnglishForward, I learned a lot English since i have been joint it.

Is it absolute that a writer has to get into the readers mind to convince the writer he/she knows what they are talking about? Why can't I use the English Language using words instead, the word interpret come to mind. Either I can convince the reader I understand and know the English Language are I do not! I believe in the subject and predicate in every sentence.

Why am I having problems explaining that to writers? Silver Pander
