A.The date – May 12th, 2009.

B.Around 1:30pm-3:00pm.

C.The time was at Emily’s parents’ house. They have some toys at sitting room and living room. The main area for baby Emily to play is at sitting. The sitting room and kitchen, living room and dinner room are an open area. So the baby Emily can crawl around the open area on her own.

Emily’s parents do not put the safety gate between the rooms.

Baby Emily has entertainer, cradle swing, some stuff animals, toys can make sound. The floor is carpeted. The parents keep house clean enough.

2.The Running Observation

a.First Name: Emily. Age: 10.5 months. Sex: Girl.

b.My infant observation is Emily. She is my friend’s sister-in-law’s daughter. Her father is Chinese form China and her mother is Chinese form Taiwan. It had been very nice to see the same cultural in the different family. Emily’s father was born in China and raised in the United States. Emily’s mother was born in Taiwan and raised in the United Stated, as well. Both of parents are quite Americanized. But in many ways are very Chinese as well. c.Emily has black hairs, nails are normal, dark brown eyes, six teeth. Because both of her parents are Chinese, so she has typical Asian skin. Her head is normal size. She is 16 lbs and 26 inches. I saw her newborn pictures. She is much longer in high. Her eyes are longer and wider. Her nose is more pointed. She has more hair and longer now. Her fingers are thicker. It is much easier to see her neck now, compare with the pictures when she was newborn baby.
