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….)
