Many firsts

April’s many firsts – mainly for Elijah!

Infant Care
Though he spends just half a day in e infant care…seeing e potential of him making many friends + sparing me some ‘alone’ time makes me happy & bubbling w excitement. Gosh I miss my little bits of freedom here & there.

Of course…that’s also exposing e little guy to more germs…but what e teachers say make sense. His immunity has to b built up. It’s either now or in e near future. It’s all a phase he has to go through. Naturally he still adjusting to e new envt…crying is inevitable! Just funny as to why all bb dislike sleeping in e cots…hmm

I do miss him when he is not around for those few hours. Constantly at e back of my mind. Guess that’s motherhood for me!

Wearing 6mths attire
I do know he is huge for a 2months going 3 baby. E fact that he can squeeze into this oversize bodysuit (catered for 6mths)…I am raising a giant?!

Foresee mega backaches!

Bb Carrier
We always wanted to squeeze Eli into a carrier so that we can bring him around wo much difficulties. Pushing a stroller is great just bulky. Kudos to me! I managed to fit Eli in properly and even made a short trip to punggol plaza. Love e handsfree moment. Though I could see Eli perspiring and not enjoying e carrier that much. At least he slept through his situation! Likes!

Best part! He is starting to smile longer and more frequent now. Happy bb!!

Progression

So here I am getting a breather while my son sleeps (over stimulation for today as we were out since morning) through multiple feeding times. Sacred peace = momentarily enjoyment!

Next week – a total whirlwind as Eli will b introduced into infant care. Never thought he will start ‘school’ so quickly. Then again…we totally require that slot just below my house. Now that we got it…worries follow. Major one will b feeding issue! Our dear friend has been so fussy recently that he rejects bottle feeding regardless e type of milk on it. Despite teats change, he still much prefer to latch on…Sighz…

Tough to introduce bottle feeding as e sole care giver…totally hope that e teachers in e infant care helps me assimilate him fully into e envt w/o much difficulty come e upcoming weeks. At least I have weeks to do so!

E thought of having at least some form of respite next month secretly thrills me though. Finally I can do my household chores w/o interruptions. Able to groom myself of all sorts and run errands w/o needing to think how to settle him when outside. Feels angsty all e time w him around. Never know when, where he will start his eruptions. Hates e public looks of ‘How u take care of your kid? Letting him bawl in public?’ Though I know it’s not my fault of any…I just hates e inability to predict e situation of any kind.

Reflection – getting more patient but super control freak every min. Not sure if I like e change. Hmmm.

Still pretty much a social recluse at this point in time. Am considering joining social groups to up my social index in april…wondering of its even wise to do so. Highly inclined to just hibernate and sleep through April b4 going back to work. Slept debt seriously catching up on me mega time. How did I survive on 4hrs of sleep everyday? I am definitely super woman!

Closing to end of march. Moving on to April. Till now…after all ranting…life still great! 😏

Growing up

Happy to b here, in this world!

I self declare to b a 3-week old rascal w pimply chub cheeks! Attitude is my middle name and I love to expand my lungs capacity whenever I poo or trickle. Nothing beats letting my neighbors hear my ability and gorgeous voice. Especially at 11pm to midnight. Oh, my fave timing! But I wonder why my dad is so adverse to my ‘singing’.

I love my parents as well! Just today, i showed what a great angel I was when my mum did her massage. I stayed cool and slept 3/4 way b4 I decided to partake some of her attention. That’s when I saw her flustering in glee. How great is my mum! Glad to play on her anxiety! She had to scurry to find me food and change my diaper…woohoo! I am king! Did I mention that I have a whiny mum? Haha she is always whining bout my looks, my behavior blah blah. It’s all right. I always respond w my ‘death stare’. (please see attached image). Nonetheless, I believe I love her w all my puny heart! (despite liking my dad more, teehee!)

My newest hobby? Doing some projectile sprays on my cot. I actually prefer to co sleep w my parents. Just that daddy always retreat me to e same old position on my bed. Think he is afraid I will dirty the bed. But e cot is always so warm; at least where I slept! I overheard them talking once about training me to be independent in sleeping. Then they forgot. I can only sleep when someone carries me in his/her arms. Independence? Nah! Tell me that word again few years later. Now I prefer to smell and lean against body heat. More comfy and they have to sway or sing me to sleep too! More work for them, twice my comfy! Wahaha!

Despite all that, I do think my mum and dad loves me. Right daddy and mummy?

P.s: daddy and mummy, please note that there are more to come! I haven display my full power!

Us: of course we love u. (e best we can at least… and btw, we are still entitled to whine about all your rascal ways and habits!) Grrr!!!
