Teething The Express Way

The uncontrollable urge to chew and bite is now back with a vengeance! My 2 lower front teeth which made their appearance in late Dec are now more prominent. On top of that, my 2 upper front teeth are now making their way out and so are my upper and lower side teeth, all at the same time! It is  no surprise that I keep wanting to gnaw at my toys, fingers or whatever I can get my hands on! However, so far I have not resorted to biting anyone yet. Well, at least not yet…

 

I also have developed quite a healthy appetite now. Mama has been diligently thinking of different combination of foods to feed me for lunch and dinner, from white rice porridge, brown rice and now even pasta! Had a taste of spaghetti and fusilli when we went out the other day with Auntie Joyce & family. In fact, it was quite tasty so I took to it quite well!! Looking forward to more tastes and textures, Mummy!

Papa should be a-sleeping

4 to 5 hours each day is not resting

He should cut down on his worrying

Either that or improve his planning

For his senses are dumbing

And losing his touch at poeming

I will also try not to be night-waking

So long as Mama gives me prompt feeding

This is all that I am saying, so

Papa should be a-sleeping

(I suspect Mama too is a-nodding)

All I want for Christmas…

For the past few weeks, I have been having this uncontrollable urge to chew, lick & salivate on whatever I can get my hands on.

After numerous changes of clothes wet with saliva and countless washing of all my toys, they finally appeared! Can you see them?

Bumbo Sitter

Not too long ago, Mama and Papa got a complimentary bumbo sitter from Mama’s good friend, Auntie Joyce. She has been very nice to us, even when I was still in Mama’s tummy, checking in on us from time to time, sharing with Mama tips on how to take better care of me and also handing down stuff from her younger son who is about 4 months older than me.

This bumbo sitter helps babies learn to sit and I heard that this one has served many predecessors and now it is finally my turn to try out its magic.

See me enjoying myself when I first tried it.

Although I was already sitting quite well, Mama still puts me in this sitter while I am being fed my meals. However, patience isn’t really one of my virtues so it wasn’t long before I started trying to break free from my confinements. Looking at the condition of the sitter, I think I wasn’t the only one who wants to get out.

Now that I can sit much more steadily without assistance, I wonder who will be the next recipient of this wonderful gift?

Half Year Mark

Hurray!!! I have past my 6 months mark!

Accordingly to Mama and Papa, I am doing quite well. I am now 7.5kg and have grown slightly taller too. Not only can I flip over onto my tummy now but I can roll onto my back and flip over onto my tummy again! I can also lift my head and chest up using the support of my outstretched arms and slowly make a 360 degrees turn! After I was discovered doing these, Mama & Papa and 婆婆 never left me unattended on the single bed in my room anymore. I tend to spend more time in my cot nowadays. The LG playmat has become a wonderful playground and exercise arena for me too.

My diet has been changed too. The regular milk that I have been taking for the past 6 months has been changed to another type which has more nutrients to cater to my growing needs. Mama has also started me on brown rice cereal and cooked apples. I am still getting the hang of these foods as they are not the same as drinking from the bottle. Mama says she will let me try out other food soon. Yippee, I can’t wait!

Mama has put a few of my photos together for your viewing pleasure.

Diaper Sniper

I don’t think I’m a heavy diaper user, but Papa and Mama approached last week with some nervousness.

” We are down to our last half-pack!” Mama exclaimed. “Can you please flip the papers for offers?”

Papa diligently covered every square inch of the newspaper, and was rewarded for his hardwork.

“The offer’s baaaaack… yeah!”

That very same weekend, we made the trip to the hypermart. There was a mixture of relief and happiness when Papa was met with this scene:

They then spent the next 5 minutes choosing the boxes with the least dents and creases – how typical! At that very moment, nobody noticed that I had hit another developmental milestone – I knew how to cover my face with my palms : )

I overheard Papa telling Mama that they don’t intend to make the same mistake like last time, when they didn’t stock up enough of the diapers. So this time around,

 

Time to… RELEASE THE KRAKEN! Hehehe…
