And so, days whizzed past and now my baby is coming to 3 months old!
Looking back, how did I feel going through the whole cycle of looking after an infant all over again?
Truth be told: I wasn’t feeling hey-I-have-an-adorable-baby-and-mommyhood-is-perfect-and-everything-is-gonna-be-easy-peasy. When everyone’s telling me how adorable my baby is, I’d give a smile, say thank you and simply stop at that. My mind and body couldn’t quite ‘click’ with the excitement there and then.
Everyday, I’m chanting in my heart and hoping that the night she sleeps through come real soon. Everyday, I go through an endless cycle of feeding –> expressing milk –> hoping earnestly that my baby will take a long nap, and on top of that, manage a toddler who has boundless energy. Was sleep-deprived but didn’t feel it so bad, managed expectations, I believe. Taking a nap was far beyond possible. During the confinement period, I just want to quickly made it past the one-month mark. (nay, and it isn’t because of the confinement blues)
The 2nd month came, and I see some light, when my baby finally settled into a ROUTINE! Oh yes, it gives any parent some sort of sanity - I knew almost exactly when’s a good time for me to enjoy a non-disturbed breakfast. While I was very adamant on putting my 1st baby on a routine, I was going quite easy this time round. God is absolutely good, and my baby girl is really an easy baby. All she wants is a good feed and good sleep. I don’t have to do anything much in particular – no need to pat baby to sleep, no need for dream feed. Between 5 – 6 weeks’ old, she slept through!
Though one feisty girl when it comes to crying, she’s really a sweet little being.
Leaving you with pictures of her while I’m going back to check in on her and kiss those cheeks…

Shall be back with more updates! Stay tuned!

Back here for a little update. Well, there must be some reasons for my ‘disappearance’ ya?
It all started with me feeling ‘repelled’ to the world of Facebook. Alright, that word is a tad too strong. Not repelled, but started off being sick and tired and so on. To cut the long story short, I simply disabled lotsa Facebook notifications, almost all. Came to a place that I couldn’t bear the notifications that kept coming in. We sometimes, unknowingly, communicate with our gadgets more than we communicate to those who are dear to us, to those living under the same roof as us. And so, I started drawing away more from my gadgets when I’m home. There’s more to life than these, seriously. (But ahem, I still love Instagram. ;) )
I think closer friends will know that I ain’t a very public person. You won’t see me updating my Facebook status all the time – once in a while, yes. And yes, I’m almost dormant on Twitter. Haha! You see, the updating of status doesn’t quite stop there. You update, and you keep checking to see how many people commented or how many ‘likes’ that status garnered.
So for now, I’ll be checking out from all these for a while. Be back though (with blog updates), I promise! :)
Praying that your days will still be as beautiful, if not more. :)
