@ 10 months 5 days
The long CNY break has given me the opportunity to spend more quality time with Ryan (auntie holiday :P). One thing for sure, when he’s at home his sleeping habit is more predictable and healthier ie he will take fewer and longer naps. Over the last few days, Ryan will wake up at 7.45am, naps at 10.30am till 12.30pm and only naps again around 4pm for another 2 hours. So he will miss his evening nap and sleep early before 10.30pm. Of course there are consequences to his early bed time. For the last few nights, Ryan actually woke up at 5am demanding our attention and play time. *slap head* His ‘play’ time will last between half hour to one hour then he’ll be back to Zzzz-land. Arrgh.. since I’m on leave, it’s still managable…….must train him to sleep for longer hours. Sigh…
Ryan with stoned face just woke up from his nap
Some changes (development) of Ryan I’ve discovered over the last few days:
Think Ryan was imitating how mummy pour the oil on the finger before applying on his tummy
Ryan is able to stack the star rings all by himself now. No more hand holding required. See, Ryan is very stubborn. He doesn’t like it when we guide his hands to stack (or should I say slide down) the star rings so all these while he was more like randomly throwing, banging the stars to the wall what not. Suddenly today out of the blue he became an expert in sliding them down the pole. If he cant stack it using one hand, he’ll use both his hands.
Hmm.. see his hand?
You think he knew mummy was in state of breaking down also seeing him cry as such.. ??
I can’t remember how long has this been on going but over the last few days I came to appreciate the beauty of Ryan’s new found playzone. Yes, for some strange reason, Ryan has developed a liking of hiding (or rather attempt to squeez) himself into the small gap between our bed and the wall. Thankfully over the last few mornings it was this magic ‘gap’ that kept him entertained while mummy relieve herself from the craving of extra minutessssssss of Zzzz…
Milk time has been a breeze also. Ryan now willingly holds his own bottle. All I have to do is lay him on a raised pillow, put the hanky and pass him the milk bottle. He will slowly put the teat into his mouth and voila. I just have stay close and continue keeping an argus eye while he drinks his milk happily and fuss free-ly…. Phew~~~*wink wink*
