Moved

It has been quite the journey these past few months. 20170605_143646417_iOS.jpg

From the excitement of collecting our keys, to managing the renovation, and finally moving in to our new place! This probably took a whole lot more out of us than we imagined.

We’ve moved and things have finally started to settle down. We’ve familiarised ourselves with the new surroundings, gotten used to the new routines (yes, this blog is back and running!), and re-started some things we couldn’t do back at the previous place: like having a quiet night’s rest, and the usual baking, cooking with proper facilities.

Sam finally has a room to himself. But actually we’re secretly happy that we have our room to ourselves now… hehe.

Enough with the house stuff, ‘what about Sam!?‘ you may ask.

He’s now 7 months old, and he’s changed a whole lot since 7 weeks old (refer to photo below). Like… who’s that baby?

Sam’s gone through a few milestones these few months.

1.His poop smells like ours. He has started eating big boy food (pumpkin and cereal in the picture). No teeth as yet though.

2. He sits. Which makes eating, bathing, feeding, cleaning, so much more convenient!

3. He’s had his first overseas trips!

4. He’s had his first swim, but wasn’t too pleased about it.

May this new home be filled with love and precious memories in the years to come!

 

 

 

Milk

Milk is usually found in breasts, teats, or udders. For others (namely adults), milk is found in cartons, bottles or crates.

Well, for Mr S, we find milk in the folds of his skin, around his cheeks and lips (the dried kind), on his mittens, socks, eyes, collars. Today we found milk in mid-air. YES, mid-flight, mid-air, on its way to spoil someone’s (and that would be us) day.

Do not hit the breast that feeds you

Thou shalt not hit the sore, bruised, and uncomfortable factory that produces our basic nourishment. The ramifications of our actions could be far reaching. For example, the factory could shut down due to worker strikes, or emergency evacuation due to earthquake.

Want to eat? here are some dos and donts:

1) Do not hit / scratch the breast
2) Do not anyhowly bite the nipple – you will discover the horrors of the bhai’i what colour when you grow up
3) Do not fight the hand that correctly positions your head – it’s for your own (and mummy’s) good.
4) Do not purposely fall asleep at the breast – we don’t fall asleep at the dining table, and neither should you.
5) Do latch properly on the nipple – off centre to the areola is much appreciated
6) Do drink up (you’ll have to do this 18 years down the road as well, training starts early)
7) Do look satisfied after drinking, even if you are still hungry
