How time flies! It was as if yesterday you were such helpless baby being bundle up in that blue cloth and today, you are able to crawl to get what you set your eyes on. While nursing you today, memories of the 3 days hospital stay flooded my mind, oh...you have grown so much!
From a tiny 3.16kg infant to now a 8.1kg baby, carrying you now is no longer an easy task. Even with the help of the Sarong sling, though my hands do not ache, but my back does from long hour of carrying you when I had to bring you around to do my errands. And you love to wriggle around which make carrying you even more challenging!
Since you are into exploring, mommy bought this Exersaucer for you to keep you occupied while I rushed about doing my work. It managed to keep you occupied for good 15 minutes, as long as I am in your sight.
You are the only one among the 4 kids that dislike medicine. Feeding you your medication is a struggle. We have to hold both your hands and secure your head to feed you. Even at such tender age, you know how to close your mouth so tightly that we practically have to "force" the syringe in! And when you tastes the medicine, your eyes will go blinking..(open/close/open/close), oh so cute! What a way to provide entertainment for mommy amidst the power struggle.
You still needs to suckle to sleep 90% of the time. The times when you don't need to nurse are when you are really too tired and had just been fed. Unlike other babies, you only sleep at 10pm every night and wakes up at 6am!! While other mommies talked about the last feed for their baby, I wonder when I can use those words, with you waking up at least twice in the middle of the night demanding for comfort suckle. Twice is when you are in better mood or HOURLY when you are in bad mood! Oh..when will you sleep through?...I'm so longing for a unbroken sleep...I want to ignore you sometimes, but you would continue your fake cry and I just have to raise my white flag and gave you what you want.
You sure are a kisser! hahaha..when I carry you, you will cupped my cheeks with both your tiny hands and pull me to your mouth and kisses my chin!
Though you may not be fast for your age, PD assure us that you are not slow, just average. You definitely need more muscle exercise so as to be not so "soft". I shall try not to bring you out so often so you can "crawl" on the floor at home. Oh, and the way you crawl is just so cute! You dared not, though you tried, to lift up your buttocks and crawl. To move around, you will pull yourself forward with both hands, just like the army style!
Your weight and height have dropped from the 90 percentile to now 50 which made mommy so guilty. I have been bringing you around that you hardly have time for your cereals. Paed said if we want to pump you up, we can start you with vegetables and porridge now. So we shall!
You want nobody but me when I'm in sight. Once, aunty brought you to the playground with Nicholas, you suddenly burst into tears when you saw someone like me from far. You dashed your body forward indicating that you want to go to that lady (thinking that was mommy).
