Happiness when being a parent

I feel happy when:
- my children manage to finish their food for every feed/meal
- they smile at you innocently or cheekily
- they hug you and say 'I Love You'
- they kiss you on your cheek
- they poo and pee 
- they drink lots of water every day

This is how simple life should be.

Even before delivery, I knew that breastfeeding would be my challenge this time round a big challenge as I did not breastfeed my gal at all. This is totally a new thing for me. The effort in terms of physically and mentally is more than what I had thought of. 

In addition, the attention that my gal needs is also a strain on me. Luckily with my family support especially my hb n mum and help and also  my CL, I can still breastfeed my boy. However, what is in my mind is what would happen after my CL leaves. How can I cope with my gal whom  needs me when she sleep and wake up, nite feeds for the nb and expressing milk, I doubt I can do so. I would not be able to manage and the stress is piling up and this affects the milk volume.

After days of thought, i decide to wean of breast milk after my confinement, I agree it is not a very good decision or rather a depressing one as a parent I wan the best for my children. However, if I persist on and it affects me (physical and mental) that I cannot provide the basic care of my children what is the point of breast milk even with all the benefits it just make me feel worst. Hence for now, I shall just continue and slowly wean off. :)

The arrival of my prince - Jaymond

My prince - Jaymond arrived on 4-Dec with a weight of 3.66 kg and a height of 51cm. It is a natural delivery with the help of epidural. However, this time round epi is totally useless to me. I feel the pain throught the delivery. The experience is definitely tramuatising as compared to the previous one or I had forgotten the previous experience. But well I decide to start blogging again to note down the bits and pieces of my free time. 

Btw I had picked up my knitting needles from the spider cob. But my yarns are being kept in the luggage bag by hb.

*Pixs are still loaded in my camera. Would try to upload them soon.

My new fave

Even since my gal started on solids, I need to crack my brain to design or decide on what to cook for her on weekends so that she would enjoy them. She is definitely a fussy eater now. Haiz.

So I am putting in more efforts to cook to prepare as well as to decorate. Ta ta here is my first attempt with my new toys.

We are back from the cruise

We are back from the cruise trip. It is a more relaxing n more ideal trip than what I expected and we have time to rest to eat to visit penang n phuket and to sleep. So i find it is a well-balanced trip.

Photos would be posted soon after sorting them out. But again today is the last day of my block leave. Hope I got time to sort them out. :)

One More Week

Yeah 1 more week to go before we head off for our cruise. Besides cruise, it also means one week of a FT SAHM.

Yes my parents are going holiday for a week and my gal main caregiver is going on one week leave. So I had to take my block leave and spend time with my gal which i dun mind a break frm work. Hopefully it dun pile up when I return.

Though this is not the first time my mum going holiday for a week (the last time she went was when my gal was abt 3 months old, it was definitely an easier time for me), i am pretty excited as I need to prepare food  and plan activities for my gal so that I can keep her occupy and spend quality time with her. Really hope she would enjoy.

Looking forward to it. For now, I need to do my planning and of coz start my packing for the trip. Yippee!!!
