Older and more

My girl has grown up to be a beautiful young lady. She is 8 years old now. A little like mini-me; has my personality and traits. Sometimes I see me in her. Like looking at yourself in the mirror.

Today, after picking her up from school, she told me that she and a classmate are going to communicate over phone later. They set a time and when her friend did not call, Jan call her instead. Gosh! They talked over the phone over homework. 

Just could not help but giggle looking at her talking over the phone. My eldest is growing and few years down the road, she is going through her teen.

Little fella at 11th month

Wow, Jamie is 11 months old and how fast you have grown! I spent time reminiscing your early day and looking through your baby photographs. My youngest child is going to be a 1-year old toddler next month!! And I made a promise to you to record your development every month till you are 1 year old as I did not do so for your older siblings.

You are no longer like to sit still in the baby chair. You will just zoom in the walker around the house or crawl on 4, climbing on bed, exploring new corners. Nothing can escape your exploring hands. You just grab anything that you can find on your path. You are also taking small walking steps with support. Not strong enough to walk on your own.

Your favourite toy is cars. You love to play with them and I am getting your brother to share some of his cars with you. It is not an easy job but you both have to learn to share.  Of course you also enjoy disturbing the remote controls and mobile phones too. 

Fruits are your favourite such as dragon fruits, oranges and kiwis. You prefer those softer flesh than apples. Mealtimes are your favourite thing to do. You can eat a lot of cereal or porridge mixed with Marmite! Your porridge varies every day with sweet potatoes, minced meat, chicken and frog legs and vegetables.

You currently have 4 (3 on the lower gum) teeth to enjoy those yummy food. Love those cute teeth when you show them. Teething can be a pain for you sometimes as you will have fever and flu any other months.

Thank god your dry skin problem is getting better now. But we must make sure we rub lotion on your skin every day to prevent dryness and itchiness.

Naptimes and bedtimes are established now. You must sleep at certain times otherwise you are one cranky baby and no one and nothing can soothe you. Every morning you will wake us up with your chatter. You love to chat and now slowly forming words by follow us.

You have a beautiful laugh. And everytime you smile, your little dimple will show up. Love to hear you cooing and chattering. They are like music to our ears. We love your big round eyes. We love you more and more each day. You are the cutest baby in our eyes.

2nd time this week

(Just out from OT and now in the men' ward as I were writing this post)

Jay was admitted again today! His elbow did not healed properly as he did not want to rest his elbow at home. Talking about hyper-active, Jay can be a great example of hyper-active boy.

His elbow bone needed to be re-aligned and this time doctor put cement bandage on him to
prevent the same problem. After more than 20 minutes in the OT, he has his cast done.

This time I were well prepared, ready his drink and food; and some toys to keep him entertained after the operation. The bandage will stay for the next 2 weeks.

It is a bearable stay in hospital this round. Jay must be exhausted that he is sleeping for few hours. And I get to read my novel too while waiting for discharge.

Half day spent in hospital

Jay has a fall last Tuesday when we went to Raya visiting. He hurt his right arm.  He was so in pain that he fall asleep in the car; and when he woke up, he immediately asked to be taken to doctor.  Immediately Big J brought him to x-ray and after all the wailing and crying, the x-ray turned out good.  All bones are in the right position and no broken bones or dislocation.

So he was on the arm support cloth, but on and off he took it off because he disliked it.  Felt like been retained. After few days, he can move his hand and arm.  However on Friday, we noticed that his elbow area swollen and he cannot move the joint.  Even after rubbing some oilment, his swell did not subdued much and he still feel the pain at that area.  So yesterday morning, I decided to bring him to the orthopaedic (bone) specialist.

He was still in his cheeky self and even raise his right arm for me

At first glance the doctor told us the bones look alright but to be more confirmed, he suggested for an elbow x-ray.  The previous one only shown the hand right up to elbow, did not really concentrate on the elbow.  So this time, he was been examined on the elbow.

Ended up one of the elbow bones was dislocated, so it caused swell and pain.  Immediately doctor admitted us to the hospital so he could readjusted his bone without further delay. So we were admitted around 10am and around 1030am, Jay was brought into the operation theatre for the minor adjustment.  Less than 10 minutes, he was done. 
Changed into the ward clothing

Waiting time

Time to go in

I was allowed to accompany him inside for a while.  So he has a bit of struggle when he was put to sleep and after that I was to stay outside waiting.  Once done, I was allowed to stay with him till he was awake.  And oh boy, hell broke loose.  He was crying, and kicking; much to my dismay.  But he must be in such agony and pain that he behaved in that way.  So I wheeled him back to his ward to rest but he was restless and inconsolable.  He wanted to change to his own clothes and go home!

After more than 30 minutes, he was calmed down and then he started to feel better.  Probably he knew he would not be going home soon.  So after a while, he rested with the sling wrap on his hand.  But it was not long when he started to be restless and cheeky again.  Playing, walking on bed and making noises in the ward.
We were in the hospital for more than 4 hours and only around 3pm we were discharged.  Waiting for the insurance claim procedures and the hospital allowed to discharge us. 

Jay to rest for another day and his elbow would be fine tomorrow.  Then he can go back to his school on Thursday.

Blessed with them

I am blessed to wake up every morning to the sounds of their chatters and laughters. They can be a nuisance once a while during the day with their childish act. At night, they must have their pillow fights or play times in bed before their sleeps.

Bitter, sweet, boiling temper and melted heart. Tough and tricky to be a parent!

Irregardless of everything, I am blessed to have them. To see them smiling and be happy as children supposed to be. Love them very much.

Time to ponder

We are in midst of an important decision. Big J let me decided on this move and finally we agreed that we shall stick together as a family.

It is a big move. A bit scare actually thinking of it because we would not know what future holds. Only can pray to God to guide us along the way.

Another group photo

So fast, it is another year. And Jay was taking his school's group photo this morning in Sibu Civic Centre. This year I was there to witness the process unlike last year when I were heavily pregnant.

Took an hour to arrange the children. It was a tough job to handle them. The younger ones were restless and as parents were there, they tend to be clingy and did not want to be in the group. I stood near the cameraman so I overheard a conversation of him and another parent. That parent was unhappy as had been waiting for the children to be ready. Well, it was not smooth handling of the packs but glad it was done at the end. After done, each parent was to bring the children to school.

Soon the children will be practising and rehearsing for their year end concert. Time really flies! And my Jay is going to be 5 next month!
