(2016-05-02) 3rd food

Today introduced her 3rd type of food – brown rice cereal.

Not sure if it’s becos I didn’t cook soft enough or it’s just her taste, she stopped eating after a few spoon *hurt*

Read online that I shall mixed 1/4 cup of rice with 1 cup of water, but I think I mixed almost 2 cup of water to cook it so it will not burnt. Added some breastmilk inside but she still resist it *DOUBLE HURT*

 

(2016-04-03) Hot Day

Today is a hot day.

All of us didn’t have a good night sleep because Miss Ong is grouchy all night and constantly wake up wanted to feed but rejecting my nursing. ūüôĀ *worry*

Did you have ‘nipple confusion’ or think that my flow is too slow and get impatient? *worry*

But apparently you are in a better mood in the day. We had a proper lunch today, for once. You¬†remain pretty patient in the stroller during our lunch and we managed to finish the meal without standing up to push you around, for once. I wish you remain good mood in future next time when we go out, hope it’s not too much to ask for. Let’s try to see which way works better for you.

Thanks for being my daughter, little princess. You are such a devil and yet is a angel to us. =) I am totally into Leticia cult.

(2016-03-20) Happy 5th month

Dear Leticia,

Time flies with your presence.

Remember when you are still in mummy’s tummy, we count your “age” by weeks, after you popped, we count you by days… and then weeks again. Today you have make it to the 5th month marking, we managed to survive through each other, I think¬†Daddy plays a very important part and he did a good job, till date.

You had learnt how to crawl finally, and today you dropped on the floor again and cry out loud. Mummy’s heart ache so much and worry but you did a good job in showing mummy how strong¬†you are – just cry a short while and get back being your old self. I know I can’t relax just like that and need to monitor you. Sorry. Sorry mummy can’t be your side all the time as I need to work. Working in my current project¬†is not easy and having to go onto the new project is not helping.

Thank you.

Mummy grew up in Singapore with most of the relatives in Malaysia, so mummy didn’t really get to interact with other babies much before. Mummy is glad you survive through mummy’s way of bring you up and bring so much joy to mummy. Every smile you smile at mummy melts my¬†heart. I’m grateful that you are healthy till date (except for the cough you caught recently) and hope you will remain and get healthier as you grow older.

Please do not blame mummy for not spoiling you like your grand parents as someone need to tell you what is right and what is wrong. How can you make other’s life easier instead of just¬†building your joy on top of other’s misery. If a grandparent’s mission is to spoil you, mummy’s mission is to stop you from being a spoil brat. Mummy is very scare she will fail and let go of you, so please hold on tight to mummy’s hand and do not let her down, ok?

Be strong. Be happy. My dear girl. Once again, happy 5th month.

 

XOXO,
Mummy

(2016-02-25) I’m sick

I am officially sick – running nose whole day and sore throat.

Brought LO to mum’s home before I went to the clinic.

Don’t dare to stick too close to LO or play “eat her” – although I know the breastmilk should contain the antibodies but it doesn’t mean I can’t spread it to her through too much “face-time” contact. Sort of miss playing with her and making her smile.

Mum tried to carry her, but she look at mum for a while, then start crying, mum says LO can now recognised others and she can’t recognised her Ś§ĖŚ©Ü. Oh no. Hope she won’t cry at Ś•∂Ś•∂ else we will have a difficult time soon.

Hope I can recover sooner so I can play with her more and bring her back to mum’s place more often.

p/s: In case you wonder why I so “side hearted”, going back to your mum’s place weekly is a must, but my parents only get to see LO once every few weeks… I just wish to keep a balance here.

(2016-02-09) Happy Anniversary

Surprised you remembered our anniversary. Although I didn’t forget our anniversary date, I lost track of today’s date, so I was pretty stunned when you wish me “Happy Anniversary”.

Guess everything moved too fast these 2 years thus we are overwhelm and nearly¬†lost our “newly married” feeling.

Thank you.

Thank you for everything you have done for me.

Thank you for everything you have done for our daughter.

Thank you for everything you have done for our family.

(2016-02-08) Happy Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year!

2016 is such a special year.

We have 3 family members in our small family now.

As the youngest family member among both his parents’ family, she got all the attention.

Guess it’s also all the attention which makes her unable to sleep T___T. Luckily mother-in-law rocking skill is powerful and managed to rock her to sleep (I still must insist I do not agree to rocking of babies, even though it works well, but I shall not comment more when people is¬†doing me a flavour).

I totally lost track of dates and days these days.

(2016-01-09) First weekend after back to workforce

Sleep

I was tired like mad today.

Can’t focus well on my official first week back to office for the whole week as well.

Never realised it is so challenging for me – one who is used to sleep very little hours, to survive daily routine due to deprive of sleep.

Fell asleep while feeding her halfway this evening again… T______T

Eat

Was reading Sis’ blog and come across the post that there is 50% off Domino’s Pizza with the below Promo Code when ordering online:
For Large Pizza: TIN21A
For Extra-large Pizza: TIN21B

So I decided to have something different (ever since baby popped, we have been having weekend brunch and dinner at the coffee place near my house) today and order Pizza, of course it needs to come with my favourite Chocolate Lava Cake.

Guess what? I placed the ordered around 4pm and put the expected delivered time to be 6pm,¬†since¬†Gary want to have early dinner¬†and then get his share of timeout (actually I thought I would need it more than him?!!), but at 6pm, the online delivery status system still reflected it as “preparing for delivery”. I received a call shortly that informed me the pizza is just sent out and to compensate me for that, it will be complimentary.

Haha, it was sort of a pleasant surprise to me as I was still pretty full at 6pm and who don’t like free food? Recently read on facebook that friend complain about Domino’s Pizza on some hiccups about his advance order via online and I was just expecting them to give me the as usual “We are late so you will get X% off from your purchase” discount card, but apparently they decided to make me a happy customer by giving their best compensation.

Thank you and good job in updating me.

Play

I no longer can play anymore. Sort of regrets for having her so early. Thus I make her my toy. Haha. After the second month I got quite immune to her crying so I always leave carrying her as my last resort. Instead, I talk to her, sing to her or even imitate her crying in attempt to make her stop. Sometimes I go to the extend of “bullying” her as my play, like making riceball face on her. It’s fun, just a bit lonely. I miss my playing in the good old time – clubbing, attending event, traveling.
