Sleep Crawling

For 2 nights since Monday, Daddy slept with Sara while I slept in my room as I was not feeling well. During those nights she woke up twice for feed. Usually she will just sleep through the night. Right after feeding her, I will return to my room. By the second night, as I was trying to return to my room after feed, her head will spring up as if sensing that I am leaving her and cried. I would then have to soothe her and lie beside her till she falls back asleep before I can return to my room.

Last night as I was feeling much better and decided that I should sleep with Sara as I missed having her beside me BUT Daddy too wanted to sleep with her. So we had a little 'challenge' the winner get to sleep beside Sara. Since both Mummy and Daddy are sore losers, we decided that we should sleep together :) with Sara in between of us.

I was in a deep sleep when Daddy woke me up last night (not sure what time it was) telling me that Sara had crawled over him, out of the mattress and was th…

Toys, toys, toys

Sara's collection of toys are usually from my nephew who outgrew them. At my mom's place, there is a Toyogo box full of toys for the 2 kids to keep themselves occupied.

This is Sara busy ransacking the box of toys in Grandma's house, looking for whatever that might interest her. I noticed that Sara will always do this with the Toyogo box...
She will sit beside the box and tilt it towards her with one hand, while stretching her little neck studying the contents in the box carefully for a few seconds before she finally reaches in with her other hand and digs in. Each toy that she pulls out, she will give a long good look at it while keeping the box tilted with her other hand, shake it a little as if all it's a rattle then look at it again and if she finds it interesting, she will let go of the box and play with the toy. If the toy somehow does not appeal to her, she will threw it over her shoulder and study the contents of the box again before she reaches in for another t…

Baby in the Office

Brought a little bundle to office on Tuesday, much to the delight of my colleagues.
Woken up at 5.45 a.m. to the ringing tone of my handphone. I have always hated morning and midnight calls. Its usually something not good. In a dazed, I was frantically looking for my phone. Found it on top of Sara's chest of drawers. My mom was on the other line, telling me that she has to send my nephew to the emergency as he was having a high fever. Unfortunately, my bro-in-law and my dad were both away in overseas and out of state. So it's up to the ladies. But it also meant one thing...Sara with no one to take care of until my mom returns from the ER.

At 7.00 a.m., all dressed for work, I followed Daddy around the house as he was getting ready for work like a love sick puppy, asking him what should I do with Sara. Should I take emergency leave? No, too much work. Daddy take half day off? Me take half day off...Finally, I decided I have to go to work. Packed Sara's bag, changed her diaper…
