Hayley staying at Popo's house @2m1w

Starting from last Tuesday, baby Hayley will be spending her third month at my parents' house. My mom will take care of her. Hopefully she does not cause a fuss at night.

During the second month when I was on maternity leave at my parents' house, I had a hard time taking care of Hayley at night. She refused to sleep from 11pm onwards... sometimes until 3am! And she refused to stop crying even though I tried everything to calm her down... change her diapers, nurse her, sing lullaby, swing her in my arms... I was so tired and lack of sleep. However a magical thing happened - I just handed her over to my mom and she stopped wailing immediately! Wow my mom must have some sort of super-grandmom power. 

When the third month started the situation got better where she moved her fussy time to to 9pm onwards... it was better cos it was at more civilized hours... haha.

This is little Hayley fast asleep in the car, while we were traveling back from Penang to Ipoh. She looks very comfy in her GAP hoodie.

This is little Hayley's look before she shit-bombed her diapers, while we were stuck in the terrible Menora tunnel end-of-holidays jam on Hari Raya Haji.

We observed a very amusing thing about baby Hayley - she likes to wriggle to the front of her cot/ playpen - like she is a baby Vietcong trying to tunnel her way out of the cot/playpen. When she reaches the edge of her playpen she will turn her head and wriggle somemore until she gets stuck in the corner. Then she will cry cry in frustration that she cannot wriggle to the front somemore. Me and papa find it so funny!


Other than crying cos of thirst/hunger/diaper change, she also likes to give out a large cry for attention when she awakes. "I want you to carry me, NOW!" Hahaha... And when you carry her she doesn't allow you to sit down, you must walk around and rock her in your arms. Great exercise.

However papa found out a great way to calm her down - throw her into the Fisher Price rocker (a gift by Uncle Bin Bin) and turn on the vibration! We call it her "massage chair"! And she will give a "Oooh... what's that lovely sensation" look, and sit quietly, enjoying her "massage" and give you some time till you finish your meal/ task at hand.

That's all for baby Hayley updates! Till next time! \:D/

P/S: Baby's weight is now 3.86kg@2 months 1 week. Our pediatrician gave us the thumbs-up, saying that this proves that even underweight babies can be exclusively breastfed successfully! Even though she's still in the lowest 10% percentile, but she's so healthy and active I'm sure that she'll catch up to other babies in no time! *Feeling awesome*
