Plane sailing

That summarises our vacation plans and state of it (I hope) for 2014 (so far?)

We're heading on a cruise in Jan 2014 and that was actually all we had planned coz we didn't dare be too adventurous, esp now that we have T.

But going for 1 year and 2 months without a vacation has really gotten to us LOL! So when Scoot announced their latest destination, we grabbed the offer and our little family will be heading to Perth come March 2014 :)

I keep teasing E about it by happily telling T how lucky he is to be travelling by plane even before he turns 1 when his daddy had to wait till he was 12 before he had the chance.

I've only been to Perth once before and god knows why, but I can hardly recall what we did there besides buying the delish apple strudel. Glutton that I am :p so do share any tips and recommendations that u might have pls?

Love is....

Had an emo moment yday. I am part of a FB mummies group and one of the members wrote about her baby being moody and seemingly constantly trying to search her out during the day when he was being cared for by this lady's mother while she returned to work.

I pictured T doing that when I return to work in Oct and my heart just broke. I really dunno how I'm going to handle this. Sighs. How did u mummies do it?

On a different note, after this morning's feed, T was awake while I did a round of pumping, so I kissed him after I was done and told him that mummy needs to go to the kitchen and keep his milkmilk. He smiled and I left after making sure that he's ok.

I decided to take a quick bite before going back to the room (been having gastric probs since yday) and I figured that T should be asleep by the time I get back.

To my surprise, he was still awake, quiet but very much awake and chewing on his little hand. I went over to him and when we made eye contact, he let out a little cry of delight and beamed his adorable sunshine smile.

I sat next to his cot and talked quietly to him for a while, and he'd smile constantly while babbling back at me. I told him to go back to sleep, and that mummy will stay here until u fall asleep.

After a while, his eyes started closing while he fought the sleepy bug. He'd doze off, and he'd quickly open his eyes to make sure I'm still around. Eventually the sleepiness won of coz, and he fell asleep with a mild little smile on his face.

Knowing that someone loves me this much...it pretty much makes my world :)

T's Antics

Was cradling T last night and trying to coax him to sleep by looking into his eyes and singing to him quietly. It was one of those moments where u just feel like u and ur baby are the only people in the universe.

Then E decided to spoil the moment by using his hugeass hand to cut off the eye contact btwn us!

Next thing we knew, T stuck out his hand, reached out to E's arm and batted it away so his view is not obstructed.

We thought it was probably a fluke and tried it several times after and each time he would repeat the act.

This little boy is truly full of surprises.

One for keeps
Me

Somehow or other I caught a cold, now normally this wouldn't be too bad, except now there's T to worry about. Im trying my best not to pass it on to him but its tough when I'm his main source of sustenance.

So I put on a mask while he was taking a nap and had my mum help me get him from bed when he woke up for his feed.

Mumsie plonked him into my waiting arms, but little did we know how amused we would be soon.

T was starving after a 3 hr nap but he paused and eyed me suspiciously while slowly approaching the boob. Normally he would already have aimed and latched on even before we have him comfortably in my arms so it was hilarious that he was so disturbed by my masked appearance.

It was as if he was trying to make sense of what he was seeing. It sure smells like mummy and it sounds like mummy, but she looks weird, is it really her? Should I be drinking?

I decided to remove the mask and see what happens. The moment the mask went off, he stared for a while and it was as if the world made sense to him once again. He smiled and started drinking heartily.

I'm so in love with this little human...

18 June
Me

This year's 18 June was a bittersweet one for me, while it marked a month of having T in our lives, it was also this day 2 years ago that we lost our first baby.

Maybe I'm over-milking the sympathy votes on this, but I don't think I'll ever get over it, this date would forever be marked with significance.

But on this date this year, I'm also grateful for the gift we've received in T. The sleepless nights, the pain, the tears and stress....it all falls into the background when I see him sleeping soundly...see him smiling...hear him cooing and gurgling. Sometimes I just cradle him in my arms and wonder how we got so lucky in the end. We've lost some on this day but we've also gained since then.

Grow well little T coz we all love u so,

T's Diary - Diaper Changing
Me
seraphinee

I feel like such a spoilt brat coz I've had such a great support network in Mumsie and E that I haven't had to do a complete diaper change myself till now!

I've always hung around as the assistant diaper changer but never had to do the whole thing myself, but E has been complaining of a sore throat which I obviously do not wish for T to catch, so I had to step up to poo duty finally.

Thankfully no extraordinary incidents like projectile pee or poo and all went smoothly. Bb is safe n clean in my arms after zonking out on his milk feed. Time to cart him off to bed. Nite guys!

So many backdated entries to put up but I thot I should put up this quick entry to mark this little milestone. T turns 1 month old today and already we see the difference from the time he was born. It's amazing to watch his progress every day and I wonder how in gonna be able to tear myself away to return to work when my ML is up.

Will put up the backdated entries when I can find the time, rite now it's all about the baby and grabbing whatever sleep I can get!

Here's a pix of him at birth and then at his one mth old party to round things up :)
