Going 8

I have not been blogging much about my Princess.  A bit guilty here!  I know that I am super busy with the youngest, as Jamie is 7 months old and up and around.  He is one busy baby, so hard to keep up with him.
But my eldest, Princess is going to be 8 years old next month.  How times really fly.  As each year goes, I feel that my eldest is growing up so fast and soon that she is leaving the nest and starting adulthood.  Oh dear! I know, I am taking everything too fast here.  But mind you, in 10 years time, she will be 18 years old and starting her college life. 

Princess is more independent, thank god for that.  I do not need to worry much about her.  She arranges her own books and schedules.  Always finish her school works before play, but once a while, I would need to nag or remind her to do stuff.  She loves to read, maybe learnt from me. She still the artistic type, always doodle and draw on papers when ever she is free.

She is more adventurous now when it comes to food.  I have to force her to drink soup when I cook soup.  So now her food list is getting longer and more selective. And she just lose a tooth on Sunday night.

What's our plan for her 8th birthday?  Just simple celebration with a cake, as she likes a little cake to go with any celebration.  My parents would be here to celebrate her birthday, so something special this year.  Princess is always a little gem in everyone' heart, being the eldest granddaughter and child in the family.

Baby at 7 months

Jamie is 7 months old today.  He is growing handsomely, praise the Lord. 

His motor skill is better, able to grip and hold strongly onto something.  His movement is also not bound to one place now.  Turning around and flip around are most of his daily routine.  The bed is just a small space to explore for him as he can move from one spot in one minute and then the next minute, he is in one corner of the bed.

Just matter of time when Jamie can crawl. Few days ago, we saw him on 2 hands and feet, lifting his body up. Reminded me of tortoise moving forward slowly in his heavy shell. Lol.

We have introduced baby walker for him early this month.  At first when he sat in walker and able to move a bit, he was pretty surprised.  A new experience for him at that time.  Now can push the walker around; not strongly but surely.

He started to eat "chuk" (congee), mixed with Bovril.  He enjoys his food.  Ate a lot of congee and cereals, and also poo almost every day.  Most of the times, his poo is soft and yellowish.

Still no sign of his first teeth, but he does love to bite onto something and us when we carrying him.  I dread the moment when little one has teeth and into the "biting habit" because I have been bitten before!  Not pleasant experience at all.  Lol!

Our handsome baby is growing each day.  In 5 months time, he is going to be 1 year old.  Times really flies.

Date rules

Don't worry, my Princess is still small.  Not into the dating field for many years more.  But I find this nice picture online for sharing here.

Of course as a mum, I would expect the best for my children, especially my princess.  Maybe because she is a girl and the only princess at home, I would expect myself to be over-proctective and demanding.  Can't blame me right?  Who wouldn't?  But I don't think I would go to any extreme that make me go to jail (Point 9).  *wink*

Organic for him

My Jamie has very dry skin and I think it is eczema. Some parts of his skin are flaky and dry. Every day I will rub lotion all over his body and rose hip oil on the affected skin.
Eczema on his face?

 The skin problem is improving slightly and recently I change his shower foam and detergent. As he is 6 months plus now I am introducing some organic products to him.
Happy Times brand from US

Dry skin on his hand

Balm and teething for him

And since mummy also has some skin allergy I also bought an organic balm. A moisturising balm safe for baby too.

Always boy

Received a call from my mil and she told me my Jay fights almost everyday! He is in Kapit for almost 2 weeks and Jan joined him last Friday. 

There is a little girl whose mum worked with my mil in her canteen. The girl is one year younger than Jay but almost same size with Jay. 

Whenever my Jay comes back for holiday, the little girl will fight with him. My in-laws treated the worker and her kids as their own. The kids called my in-laws "gung gung" and "mah mah".

So you could imagine that they are been loved by my in-laws in Kapit. When Jay comes, the little girl may feel threaten and this may cause the reason for competition. Ended up in scratching and fists fighting. Lol.

My Jay initially lost to the girl in fight but after a week there he actually can win after the little girl. My mil commented he knows how to defend himself and fight back. Lol.

It is part of growing up. Kids fighting etc. As long as it is healthy and no one really get hurt, I am alright. My Jay has grown up. Now he knows how to fight with other kid. Lol.

6 months old

Our baby Jamie is 6 months old today.  Look at this chubby and active baby!  Such a darling!

He learnt to self soothe to sleep now and most nights he will wake up once or none for feeding.  During the day, he will take one short nap in the morning (about an hour) and one long one in the afternoon (2 - 3 hours).  He also love to sleep like the above picture with his head tilted to left side or sleep on his left side.  He sleep mostly on his baby cot and our bed instead of his cradle.  I am slowly weaning him off from his cradle since he loves to turn in the cradle which is rather unsafe.

I know that babies as young as 6 months old can recognise voices and faces of their mums or dads.  I think my Jamie can recognise my voice as well as my face.  He also recognise his sister and brother's voices as they played and talked a lot with him.
Jamie also love to practise his vocal. He shrieks and screams most of the times. He does have that high pitch shriek to attract our attention. 

He started to take his first taste of solids on his 5th month.  So far he has tasted rice cereal, apples, oranges, and few sips of chicken soup!  He sure enjoy his food.  Everytime he sees us eating, he will make those cute chuckling sound, and swallowing his saliva.  Lol!  

With his soft toy bear

His hand motor has also improved a lot.  He can grab and hold things stronger now.  I also train him to hold his bottle now. His eye coordination is also better as he can see things very far.  Now I am teaching him some colours and story reading.  Every nights, our routine would be learning and song singing before bed.

He is also a moody baby.  If he does not get his way, he will pretend to cry or wail for a while.  If still no response, then he will really cry out a loud.  He can throw tantrum if he does not get what he wants.  Sometimes it is fun to make fun of him just to see him in temper. And now he even know how to spit and play with his saliva.  *faint*

He can turn to his stomach without trouble, but not yet master the skill of turning back.  Soon I am sure.  His backbone is stronger now too, as he can sit straight.  Prefer people to carry him straight as he likes to look around.  No longer like to lie down for long. 

Soon my baby will be able to sit well and grow his first baby teeth.  He grows so fast!  I am excited and happy with his progress but same time, sad that he is growing so fast....Lol!

2 more years

This morning I received a reminder letter from Jay's kinddy on primary school registration. Oh dear! Time really flies. My Jay is going to celebrate his 5th birthday in 6 months time.

It is March now and it is time to register your 5 years old to the primary school of your choice. This afternoon I have ready the necessary documents and made few copies. Will collect forms from school tomorrow. Will enrol him in the same school with the sister. 

Have you done so for your 5yo??
