Just the three of us

Well, wai po left last Thursday night, it is now just three of us. Choon Ping took last Friday off so that we could ease off our schedule with just two adults taking care of Wei Yang. He behaved very well the night wai po left. He actually gave wai po a smile during sleep at the airport... which left her a good impression. It was a bit sad, it's been great having her around taking care of Wei Yang.

I am now taking over the night shift until 5am, and Choon Ping will take over wai po's 5am shift until he goes to work... like around 10am. Then I will take over. Wei Yang smiles a lot in the morning, which is great! This gives a good opportunity to video conference with gong gong and po po before they go to bed. :) So, this Monday was my first day taking care of him alone during the day time. Turned out that it wasn't that bad... survived. But I do look forward to weekends, even though I'm at home all the time. It's nice to have Choon Ping home, and some time with just the three of us. It was my first time bathing him as well on Monday. It used to be wai po doing it. :P Just as he did when wai po was here.... he did get nervous and would grab my clothes tightly before putting him into the tub.

Wei Yang is doing great, growing like a weed, and getting heavier! ...just wish that he sleeps longer stretch. He's 7 weeks 1 day now, but somehow he still has a very short sleeping cycle; now average at 1 hour 40mins per sleeping/feeding cycle. This past weekend, he had one 3-hour sleep, and we were sooo happy! During the day time, it's less than an hour, thus my time gets interrupted very often. Often times, I need to keep the bouncer bouncing (with my foot) when he's about to start fussing. This practically imprisons me. However, he sleeps longer if we go out, especially during the car ride. I guess he is very 'hong soo' lah... just like his dad, gong gong, and po po ? ;P In fact, we went to Lynn and Jack's house for a BBQ party this past Saturday... of course we brought the little guy along to meet their parents and relatives. Another baby boy who's 2 days older was there as well. Wei Yang behaved quite well! Didn't scream his head off, but slept most of the time during the party. I guess he likes the wide noises. Of course he pooped, peed, and fussed a little. We ended up being at their place from 1pm until 7pm; finshed all the diapers that we brought along... it's time to go home....

Our cats begin to get reaallly comfortable with Wei Yang's presence... except when he cries, weeee.... off they run! Winston loves to cuddle on his bed! ... somewhere close to his sleeping spot. This morning, Choon Ping said Toro wanted to snuggle on top of him... but of course, was stopped by him.
Here's a picture of Wei Yang taken yesterday while he was snoozing during the day time. He's 7 weeks exactly; roughly about 12 lbs in weight, ~23 inches in length.

Ooo... gotta go attend the baby now. Winston just stood beside him, then "meoW...meoOWW...", next thing i hear... "wuaaAAHHH...!!"
