Well, for some reason I become sooooo enthusiastic today that I decided I should start blogging and start bla bla-ing about etc etc etc.

I’m still pretty ameteur in all these but I believe in practise makes perfect, I’m gonna be a pro soon leh..

Let’s share abit about my beloved cutey son Ryan Lim Yuen Jou who is 7 months 1 week 1 day today. Aiseh.. I know I know, a bit late to start blogging about Ryan when he’s already 7 months. But what to do.. this mummy as blur and as procrastinating as usual.

Ryan slept early last night at 10pm. That’s not exactly early for a baby his age but considering his usual bed time is 12am, last night was a bonus hour for Mr Lim (ooh.. my hubs la) and me.

Time flies, I thought I heard ‘ee ee eh eh’ from Ryan and took a peek at lil monster. Sure enough woke up already – but still lying still on bed, not moving an inch, don’t know why so quiet.. then suddenly he smiled (quietly oso) and blink blink turned and saw this mummy staring at him. Alamak.. 5.30am!!! Ryan rolled to his side and sat up. This time no more quiet moment leh.. His then ‘ee ee eh eh’ is now ‘EE EE EE EE EH EH EH EH’ at a much louder volume. Sigh.. have to wake up, made milk and played with this lil monster.

Aah.. mummy so tired and sleepy, not yet crack of sunlight yet….really miss those days I can sleep till ‘sunlight shined over my head’ – direct translation from chinese.. heehee…

Cont to pat pat pat, phew..!! Ryan went back to dreamland at 6.30am. Not too bad la.. one hour of ‘streszzz’ only. Wink Wink……
