A Cut on Ryan’s Lips

@ 11 months 3 weeks 5 days

Oucchhh!!!!!

I came home to find MIL wiping blood from Ryan’s mouth. The story is like this. Apparently my baby had slipped, fell flat and cut his own lips while practising his walk-walk at nanny’s place this morning.

After so many hours by right the wound should have dried up so when MIL saw Ryan drooling blood she panicked and suggested I visit the paed. I assured her it could merely because Ryan had rubbed his lips to something and caused friction to the wound. Afterall, the cut was on the outside centre of his lips (top and bottom). That explains how easy it is to bleed again. Heehee.. MIL is like me, always kan-cheong.. the better be safe than sorry type.

Anyways, nanny’s side of story is that Ryan had stepped on his PJ pants, unable to balance and fell. Huh?? I don’t understand how could that be possible when the PJ that I put on Ryan last night was infact a bit short wor.. Hmmm.. nvm la. Just hope this lesson will teach nanny to be more careful. Must drop some hints to her tomorrow. **Blehhh**

From my naked eye the cut wasn’t too deep so I was pretty relieved and therefor have again concluded the lack of need to bring Ryan to paed. This time round I am pretty calm (Yeh!!) Maybe partly because I have kinda anticipated no baby can survive the walking phase without any bumps and falls. It’s part of a baby’s growing process. Just hope the little *accidents* would not warrant any need to see the paed.

Ryan showed no signs of distress nor being in pain. Was happily messing up with his toys as usual though blood was seen dripping onto his top (suspect his sleepmate is the culprit). Was a painful sight to watch… afterall, it’s BLOOD!! So I quickly first aided Ryan. Ran through his hanky with cold water and held it to the cut area on his lips (centre top and bottom) to stop the bleeding. As expected Ryan was very against it so I have to repeat the process a few times while distracting him with other things. So difficult to trick this baby nowadays.

Poor baby… Recover fast fast fast ya…..

Poor baby in ZZZz-land (sob…think a bit swollen at the centre)

Association of the word ‘Mum-Mum’ with Food

@ 11 months 4 days

Ryan is now able to associate the word ‘Mum-Mum’ with food. When he’s hungry (usually ard his feeding time) he’ll say ‘Mum-Mum’. Eg, Yesterday evening while being carried by Yeh-Yeh, Ryan mumbled ‘Mum-Mum’ repeatedly. Since I came home late, I was not aware what time was his last feed (I usually ask MIL but this evening somehow MIL forgot to tell me and I forgot to ask).. later after verifying, we realised Ryan could be hungry as it had been 3.5 hours since his last feed. Aah.. mummy was so blur *slap head*. Siding that at possible coincidence.. later at night hubs was busy bonding with Ryan. Carrying him all around the house. Suddenly when Ryan saw some grapes in a bowl, he mumbled ‘Mum-Mum’ again. Hmm.. can it be sooooooooo coincidence???

*This morning Nanny told me Ryan would get very excited when she opens the fridge. Then he’ll say ‘Mum-Mum’. Hahaha.. so funny. Ryan is such a ‘wai sek meow’ (likes to eat)

*****
Ryan cried for the first time when I left him for work yesterday morning. I was a little taken by surprise as it has never happened before. When I saw his tears my heart sank. I used to envy parents whose baby cry out for them when they left the baby for work. However, when I saw Ryan with tears I despise myself having such thought at the first place. I do not wish to see Ryan with tears anymore.. My heart has never felt so heavy when I jumped in the car this morning.

This morning he cried again…. Poor baby…

*****
Ryan has been tossing and turning on bed almost every night now during the wee wee hours. It has been so many nights that hubs and I have gotten used to it.. frankly. That said, if that continues, sooner or later hubs or I will risk the possibility of being *fried* (fired). Certainly none of us is looking forward to becoming a STAP (Stay at home Parent). I am assuming Ryan’s wee hour *stunts* is short term and a mere phase of bad teething syndrome. I hope I am right. He has been drooling quite badly. Oh and as if that is not bad enough, Ryan now knows how to *play* with his saliva. He will stick his tongue out, with saliva all over and start *bleh, bleh, bleh* (minus the sound) end up with the saliva dripping all over his top!! Sometimes if we’re **lucky**, we gets to see his saliva with all the small bubbles too. Yeaks!!! Then when we warned him “NO RYAN!!”, he again gave you his usual flirty cheeky smile and does that all over again. Eeshhh….!!! Smelly Little Monster!!!

*****
Apart from his daring wobby steps, Ryan now develops a new liking. He will sit on the floor, use his two hands to slide his butt forward and backward (backward most of the time). If sitting position is too tiring.. he will lay flat on his tummy and do the same sliding stunts.. you know like those soldiers in battlefield. Hmm…

*****
I have been using the Pigeon toothbrush on Ryan for a while now. Usually Ryan would knowingly opens his mouth when I bring the brush near. Last Sunday, he decided to be different. See below… decided to get his hands on the brush instead. (guess must be due to teething again….)

Nanny is Back!!!

@ 10 months 3 weeks 3 days

Yoohoo.. I couldn’t contain my joy when I saw nanny this morning. I know it is such an awful, horrible, disgusting thought. I sounded as if I am so happy to leave my baby with someone rather than taking care of him myself. But the inner me truly believes Ryan is happier at nanny’s place (got another cutie baby to play with) and at least all the months under nanny’s care he was never once as sick as he was during the week under mine. Sob sob…

Anyways, the good news is… my hyper Super Baby is back in action!!! Ryan has recovered from his flu, fever and only down with one or two coughs occassionally. I am so so so relieved.
