4 months had passed since little Ryan was born. From a tiny little "fragile" baby to a now tough one. And before we even knows it, he will be crawling around the house! That's when the real test of sibling's love comes. Wonder will Nicholas love him just as much as now when baby Ryan takes his stuffs then...
As expected, from the way he drinks his milk, he did not put on as much weight as the past months and with the nurse assuring words during our last check-up, "Babies' growth will slow down for a few months before picking up again. So don't worry if your baby weight gain drop." I'm not that concern on this area. He can be satisfied in 10 minutes and that will be enough to last him for a good 2 hours. The night feed was totally waking up for fun as he only suckle for less than 5 minutes before dozing off to dreamland and only to ask for it again 2-3 hours later. The longest stretch of time he goes without crying is in the morning. He will feed about 6am and the next feed will be about 10am.
Though he did not put on much weight, he is now sharing T-shirt with Nicholas..no kidding..he fits perfectly well in all his korkor's T-shirt.
I'm not sure if he is able to recognise me as the provider for him yet but he does smile and talk more to me than with others. Probably also because I played more with him. We usually have our "chit-chat" session in the morning (when I am not needed in the office) and I really love to hear him "talk". So CUTE!!
He is very afraid of tickle and always chuckle when I tickle his tummy. He enjoys having my fingers gently "walking" on his forehead too...heehee..he will close his eyes and makes those kind of cutie sound..
He had also picked up playing with saliva and biting my nipple...On the biting, it started about a week ago when he was drinking and poo-ing at the same time. When he heard me saying "Ouch!" he actually gave me a cheeky smile. I know I have to stop this habit of his else I risk him biting it off when his starts teething..hahaha...
Changing Nappy for him is a challenge now that he flips so easily. Most of the time, he would flip before I have completed the "change".
Under the influence of Nicholas (while Ryan is still in my tummy), baby Ryan loves to listen to Thomas The Trains theme song. He usually stop crying (in the car) when I played the Thomas and Friends' DVD.
Oh..he is affectionately known as "li lu pet" Don't asked me how he get this name, have totally no idea..probably because Nicholas' pet's name is "lu lu" thus baby Ryan is little "lu"..
