Last week edition



How was your weekend? I am finally adjusting to the waking up early for school days, taking care of baby and busy with my 2 older kids' school and activities. Sometimes I wonder how I survive all those gruelling weeks. lol.

Last week I also put a big hole in my credit card. One shot. Booked ourselves few air tickets and hotel reservation online. 


Jamie likes to be carried like this and sit up straight

Baby Jamie is turning 4 months on Saturday. He is at the cutest and active stage right now.  He is all smiling and babbling baby with high pitched screams and cooing all the times. Not to mention his leg strength, able to kick the blankets away and twisting his body here and there. Yesterday saw him turning to one side but not brave or strong enough to turn 180 degree. 90 degree is good enough for now. Soon! Very soon that 180 degree trick.

Nap less during the day but slowly sleeping longer at night. Some nights he can wake up once at night for feeding but some nights I have fed him thrice. Pretty tiring as I have to wake up around 530am to get ready breakfast and snack boxes for other kids.

We are now getting a cleaning maid to clean the house twice a month. RM80 from 8 something to 5pm. At least I do not have to stress myself out on housechore. Really find cleaning maid helpful in that aspect.

We had some frightful evenings last week with maddening and utterly noisy rain that causing floods here and there. Hope for a better weather this week.

So how do you start off your Monday morning? As for me, I cooked my simple but yummy fried rice today since there is leftover rice.  

What's in my agenda today? Nothing much but maybe I can start packing our luggage. Going back to Kapit for cny next weekend. Have washed the new clothes so I better pack them away. Then I would not forget anything when times come. Some more travelling with a baby. Need to ready almost everything for baby. And I have to write in to school telling the teacher that my girl is going back and absent from school earlier. So far no notice on when the school is going to close for the celebration so my guess is there is none.

A part-time maid only costs RM80 for a day from 8am - 5pm? I paid SGD12 for an hr & that was like 10 yrs ago! Wow!

Such a cute baby James. :D I have not been in proper sleep since I gave birth. People always told ne, embrace the moment while we can. When they're all growing up, we surely missed them.

Oh sweet Jamie! My little A likes to be held like that too and wants to sit upright with my support as well. Same with all the cooing and screaming and kicking away. Haha! Enjoy your beautiful baby.

PS: I think it's tough with just one baby - you have 2 older kids!! You are a super mum!!!

yes, traveling with babies are a little troublesome but can't be overcome.

Baby Jamie is adorable. Have a good time in Kapit!

We don't have a helper or a maid. So, taking care of our house is a bit challenging.

Hopefully, you'll be able to cope with all those housework. Our Monday was not good. Both my kid and wife were down with flu. Oh my!

Hi, Chinese schools in Kuching will break from 30th Jan to 4th Feb. Should be the same in Sibu?

Having a part time maid to clean your house is a good idea, and RM80 only so reasonable... this year I also didn't prepare much, guess it is also a lesser budget time for me... enjoy yourself in Kapit...

Libby said...

Baby Jamie looks really like you

Oh yeah, I am in desperate need of help for the house too. It looks like a tornado wrecked havoc here :(
