Mom and dad are going home this weekend. I am trying very hard to not show any emotion but I really feel like crying!!!I have been so spoilt with my parents being around especially my mom helping to look after Mason. Thank god Mason was not a demanding baby. Sometimes me and my mom goes out to have some mommy and daughter time while my dad stays home with the baby.
Looking at my mom playing with Mason really gives me mix feeling of happy and sad. Happy to see them playing and laughing sad to think whether Mason will still remember his Popo who looked after him since he was born. I swear I will be balling my eyes out if see my mom cries when she says good bye to Mason.
Zarina is more carefree (I think she’s more like Des). When she heard that her grandparents are going home, all she said was “am I going to your house for a holiday?”
Although I’ll be seeing my parents in 6 weeks time however the thought of them not seeing the grandkids for another year makes me very sad.
During these 5 months I have learnt (still learning) to be patience when it comes to things not done in the usual way or the occasional situations where I’m stuck in the middle. I know there are moments where me and my dad have disagreements but we just let it slip it through. Sometimes I wonder why my mom does things so differently but I just try not to comment too much to not upset her.
This has been the longest time I have lived with my parents since 2001. I always wonder how do they feel for not having me in their home for the past 14 years.
MasonJ had his 4 months check up with the MCH nurse today.
The MCH nurse is very happy with MasonJ’s development and growth. Everything is on track which is a good sign. He currently weights 6.1kg.
Another milestone achieve for this little fella at 16 weeks old. MasonJ did his first turnover today at home.
My parents and I were so excited to see baby boy turn from his back to tummy.I think baby boy was quite shock about the whole situation. He looked quite confused on why we were cheering and praising him. 😂
Happy 12 weeks old baby boy!! So cute to see MasonJ sucking his thumb. He has been cooing a lot, smiling and loves baby talk with my mom. I am so glad to have my parents here to help me. I’m gonna miss all these when they go back in 6 weeks time. 😭😭😭😭😭
I have kept MasonJ’s routine similar to MissZ’s which is the Eat-Play-Sleep on repeat. MasonJ sleeps very well if we are out at the shops. He can be sleeping for close to 4 hours in one go.
The night routine is not too bad. MasonJ will wake up around 2am/3am for a feed and he will sleep through till 6am/7am. From the day I found out I was pregnant I have already prepared myself to wake up for night feeds. I think it does help a lot when I’m mentally prepared.
MissZ is now a pre-schooler. She is into drawings and loves to read books. I must say MissZ has very good imaginations too. Some of the words that she uses are very much advance than me. I don’t recall using “big words” when I was 4 years old. I don’t think I was speaking English at all.
I find that by putting your kids in a good childcare actually helps a lot with their developments. Am very proud of MissZ.
Saying good bye to this oldie which has serve me well throughout my whole pregnancy.
When I first saw this bag back in 2009 I was drooling over it and I kept going back to NAP site to make sure the bag is still available and also to test whether I’m really in love with it. So after 6 months of looking and checking I finally bought it for my 30th Birthday. When the parcel arrived at home I was like a kid jumping up and down with HAPPINESS printed on my forehead. Des thinks I was a crazy woman.
Somehow I didn’t get to use the bag as often as I would. I fell pregnant few months later and after I had MissZ, I started carrying smaller cross body bags because the nappy bag was a permanent accessories that I have to bring with me all the time.
As time passes this bag got neglected. So last year when I fell pregnant for the 2nd time, I said to myself that I have to fully utilized this bag. I used the Bayswater during my whole 9 months. After I left work for my maternity leave, this bag was put back into the dust bag sitting next to my bed for 3 months since MasonJ was born.
In the end I decided to sell the bag to a reputable reseller. The resale value quoted was not too bad either so I didnt feel guilty for investing so much money and got peanuts in return.
Good bye my dear friend. I hope your new owner will cherish you well.
My lil man has started cooing whenever we talk to him. It’s so cute to listen to his subtle voice.
Breastfeeding has gotten much easier now. I don’t even bother to feed MasonJ in the parents room. I’ll just use my apron to cover up when I’m feeding bubs. I was really paranoid during Zarina’s time but I realized now that no one actually cares when you’re BF in public.
