Our Baby Holds His Own Bottle

@ 8 months 1 week 6 days

It never crossed my mind to prop a bottle to Ryan to test his fine motor skills in holding his own bottle until I saw him doing it at auntie’s place. Auntie then confirmed it has been a while already. Sigh.. this mummy still blur-blur. It was after then I recalled Ryan actually started holding his own bottle when he was barely 2 months old.. well not exactly holding though cos his hands were not strong enough then so he was more like touching with both his hands and ever since frankly I kinda assumed it’ll happen naturally ‘one day’ rather any initiation from me.. But come to think of it, kinda silly la. If I don’t prop it, how would I know that ‘one day’ has already arrived? Another sign my baby has grown…

After the discovery at auntie’s place, nowadays I will let Ryan hold his own bottle be it for milk or water. Often he would just let go and kinda still expecting mummy’s extra hand.. not anymore baby. You have to learn to do it without mummy’s help.. but at times he would surprise us with a show of his little stunt by holding the bottle single handedly.


Ps: Ryan still doesn’t know how to drink from the weaning cup. Must let him practise more…

Bad Hair Day

@ 8 months 1 week 6 days

Ryan’s hair has grown a fair bit and it’s getting a little messy esp near the ear area. So, pandai pandai (smartly) we decided maybe we could attempt to give our baby a quick trim. Smart Daddy suggested we use his shaver which has this trimming feature which we thought it’s a brilliant idea cos our baby won’t risk having a cut knowing he’s such a hyper. So, Daddy picked up the shaver and voila.. our baby had his firt virgin hair trim. This is the outcome….sigh.. big sigh…..poor baby.

Sleeping Thru The Night

@ 8 months 1 week 6 days

I thought it would be good to share this special milestone. For the past #no days (I lost count, but I think more than a week) Ryan has managed to sleep through the night without any feeding. Ryan will usually wake up around 5am for his supper milk time but for the past daysss he managed to go without until he wakes up around 8.30am. To add another feather to my cutie, two days ago he slept at about 10.30pm (last feeding) and only woke up at 9.30am the next day – with no feeding in between. Hahaha.. must have been too tired the day before. Of course Ryan still has the habit of tossing and turning in bed esp if the air-con is not cold enough. Now this is a problem here. Mr Lim can’t stand the cold, Baby Junior Lim sweats easily so this poor mummy is often stucked in between and frankly I actually also lost count the number of times I have to force my eyes to open with barely slit gap in the middle of the night so to adjust the air-con temperature and making sure the two babies are well covered. GGrgghh…

Anyways, back to Ryan’s tossing and turning.. somehow mummy and daddy has grown to be quite ignorant too and would usually try to settle him with a few pats to assure him we’re around. It is also through this we’re hoping he’ll soon learn to understand it is okay to wake up and fall back to sleep on his own without any feeding/excessive stimulation from us. Finger crossed. So far so good. :D

As mummy is typing this out, Ryan is already asleep since 10.30pm. Sweet dreamsss baby. Muaks muaks. I never failed to give Ryan goodnight kiss eventhough my baby is already asleep – a habit I’m trying to instill between our baby and us. Heehee.. just like Mr Lim would always give me a goodnight kiss before he dozes off (missed a few times because he was toooo tired already. Sob sob.. so tired meh Mr Lim? Anyways, forgive you la) and a goodbye kiss before he leaves for work in the morning (this never missed before). Yeakss.. very ‘yok ma’ hor. Heehee… Love my two babies.

Mummy’s Bad Fall

@ 8 months 1 week 6 days

While happily strolling with Ryan along the pathway near my house this morning, suddenly I slipped and fell. Thank goodness somehow I was able to maneuvere my balance and just fell flat on my knees so that my cutie is still safe on my arms. Phew~~~ That was closeeeeeeeeee. Seriously have no recollection what caused me to slip; somemore was a flat pathway.. Fluke shot? Mo Kum Hak kua?? (so bad luck?) . Maybe just merely too fat too clumsy already. Sigh…

Ryan who saw his poor mummy fell was about to start the pitiful cry of his. So I quickly stood up, composed myself, gave him a few assurance pats on his back and distracted him with other things. (Though down my knees were like yelling super painnnnnnnnn). But but, most most importantly my cutie is alright.

Luckily nobody saw the whole episode, else really paiseh!!! :D
