Pretty routine day for me as I’m still having my maternity leave. baby has grown bigger in size. her smiles always melts me…even though she tend to be naughty sometimes.. but how could u resist her smile. Sometimes when we change diaper for her, just when we open up the diaper, she starts to pee.. End up her clothes also wet.. so always remember to put the diaper mat beneath her body. there was time her poo poo also shoot out, fresh … WH clothes also kena, not to mention the diaper mat, her mattress, sometims on the floor too. well, after she done..how can u scold her when she give u a big big smile after that? clean up the mess first!
Apart from that, we also start bringing her during our weekend grocery shop. For her to get use to new environment and see this new world. We have both the stroller and carrier. so sometimes change in between. She dont enjoy stroller that much when she is awake, only able to sleep if she super tired. same goes to carrier, once she wake up, she would want to break free. She still prefer we carry her, but she’s getting heavier. A good sign of development, but it’s bad for arms.
She started to learn flip at the 11 week.. as mention before she loves sleep on tummy.. so when we lay her face up, she will make noise sometimes.. the first time she did so, she was on the sofa. MIL put her on the pillow and she manage to move her body, sort of half flip. thereafter she exercise that more often. It’s kinda hard for us to take video, cuz when we want to take video, she doesn’t want to flip or sometimes she already turn over when we take up the hand phone. Sometimes her hand stuck while flip over. then she will shout for help. She manage to flip over by herself without any help at week 12.
She loves to make different sounds.. WH always like that touch her chin and say papa. this baby will actually response to him, they enjoy this interaction most of the time. We bought the toys with sound to attract her attention as well. During the first month checkup, doctor actually use a small bell, she will follow the ring from one side to the other, so cute. simple and usual thing we do, but to baby, it’s all new and they have to learn. It’s amazing, how she observe and learn herself… from always stuck her hand when flipping to able to flip herself without the help from us.
It’s her first CNY, she got angpaos from us and also our relatives. Was rather sad not able to meet my family members since we are not going back this year. The angpao will all goes to her saving accounts for her education fund later on. Have open the cda account for her, now have to plan for her insurance, education etc. My friend keep telling me to register for childcare first. Some of them even do it even the baby has not deliver, they could register a few centres also. Hmmm, that’s why the waitlist very long. Vicious cycle, can i not join the cycle? Sigh, I dont wanna her to have no place to study. Even though mil can take care of her. But still need to let her have chance to get along with others, to learn other skills along the road of growing up. As new parent, there are so much things we got to learn. So baby, please bear with us. And let’s work together to overcome the obstacles along the way.
