Time Out

16 weeks of maternity leave.. Each day passes in a blink of eye. Too fast that I often get caught in a situation like, "Was it yesterday? Or this morning??" that some thing happened or some conversation took place.

37 more days til I go back to work. I shudder whenever I think of it. A part of me wants to go back to work at the soonest. Yep, you guessed it right.. whenever the kids get out of control!! But there are bigger part of me that wishes the day never comes. I'm afraid I'll be too outdated. too passe. too redundant.

Gosh, is this another wave of post-natal blues?

Or purely excuses??

Malacca Oct 2009

We have just come back from a 3D2N trip to Malacca. Our first experience to travel with 2 kids. Each thing we brought was doubled. From the clothes, diapers to the extra energy needed to settle 2 kids. Luckily Mum was with us during this trip too.

She asked if it's worthwhile to go for holiday tugging along 2 kids at this age? I told her, definitely it was!! It was such a hectic yet rewarding family trip :) More to come hopefully...

Chubby Boy Bosco

My Growing Kids...

Many a time, words got stuck whenever I try to compose while looking at the picture of them. They must be the most beautiful gifts in life, next to the husband.

Enough with my mushy lines, Chloe is turning 2 years old tomorrow. She's the mini radio that wouldn't stop babbling at home now. She's carefully making sentences from all the things gathered around her. Sentences like, "爸爸 money 买 barney", "妈妈 sshhh 弟弟 sleep" or "Chloe bag school" (Chloe takes bag to go school) are filling my ears all the time. She can't wait to start schooling, it makes me wonder if I should enroll her earlier.

Chloe is in the midst of toilet training. She's able to hold her urine and give us signal to prepare her potty for her. Silly me was so happy to catch her poo for the first time, like striking the lottery! Out of mischievous, she'd still wet her pants at home. Lots of sweet talks need to be done for her to get the toilet job done.

As for Bosco, he's getting smarter and alert each day. He rejects the thawed frozen breastmilk, but OK with a newer stock. He usually cries and shouts for attention during our meal times and would stop crying the moment we step near his rocker. He's chewing loud on his hands and fists. His physical development is more advanced than Chloe during her age. Must be the boy's genes.

All in all, watching the kids grow is such a wonderful experience...
Dear time, please go slower...

Bosco's 2nd Month

Time just flies. Especially with 2 kids now.
Next week Chloe turns 2 years old, and Bosco will be 2 months old.

A quick recap on Bosco's 2nd month.

We said bye bye to his thick black hair and shaved him bald. That's when I saw lots of acnes/breakouts on his oily scalps. Just when I thought his baby acne on his face was getting better. Argh....

His skin conditions worsened and slowly they emerged to cradle caps. Lots of them on his scalps, forehead and ears. I was pretty upset by them. Poor boy wasn't very happy either from the look on his face...

Other than his skin conditions, Bosco was growing well. He weighed 5.2kg at 5 weeks when I brought him for his 2nd dose of Hep B jab. His length was around 55cm. Thankfully my breastmilk supply increases as he grows too. The breastfeeding woes improved right after I rant on my earlier post.

At his 6th week, the flakes on his head was falling off. Finally I got to kiss, smell and squeeze newborn smooth skin again. His neck could support his head better. And he met his new friend, his dear fists :)

What a newborn does best to melt your heart?
For me, it's Bosco smiling in his dream...

Bosco had his first playdate with En Jie and Claire on Children's Day! The three of them were delivered by ACJ Clinic (of TMC) wonderful gynaes and they have interesting birth dates. Claire's born on May 16, En Jie on July 17 and Bosco on August 18...

Lastly, Bosco is able to sleep a good 7-8 hours stretch at night now.
Ah... I love my Bosco!

The Role of a Sister

Over the weeks, Chloe is picking up a lot of things that I do while taking care of Bosco. She would imitate me from the little kisses to how to burp a baby, it's really a funny sight to see! Imagine she would pretend to make the 'EERR' burping sound coming out from her Minnie after she patted Minnie's back!

The thing that cracks me up most, is this...

What's on her hand is my Avent breast pump. tsk tsk tsk.. :P

Wanted to flood this blog with lotsa entries about Bosco, about Chloe, about me, about the husband.. and many more. A lot of thoughts that I wanted to share here, they have been temporary saved in my brain. I really wish I could do them soon before they got automatically deleted by the brain system.

Gosh, time passes fastest when you're enjoying the most!!
It's the month of October already! It's the mooncake festival tomorrow..
Just want to do a quick post that the 4 of us are doing fine.

Well, a picture says a thousand words :)

Meanwhile, may all of us have a great lovely mooncake festival tomorrow :)
