Friends dropping by...

We've been blessed with good friends that are dropping by to help taking care of Wei Yang while Choon Ping is on his business trip to Asia. Arif and Tahera dropped by last Friday night. They brought dinner over, and later were having fun carrying Wei Yang. He enjoyed having them around. hmm... good babysitter candidate :P

Wei Yang's sleeping schedule has improved quite a bit recently. He hits a few 3-hour straight of sleeping at night. The longest hour he had so far was 5 hours 55 minutes. This was when Xin and Shwe came to look after him that night. After they left, I kept checking on him at the door just to make sure that I hear his breathing sound. It seemed unbelievable... However, his sleeping schedule for the following day was horrible! Back to square one... waking up every 1-1.5 hours for the whole night! Guess I need Xin and Shwe to drop by more often. ;P

Wei Yang's day time nap is still bad; each session lasts no more than an hour. I can't really do much or sleep. On top of that, he just loves to see faces when he's awake. The minute I walk away from him... he starts making noises, and eventually progresses to a full blown screaming/crying if I don't attend him. He loves being held constantly indeed!

Yesterday was a great day for Wei Yang, I did get some good rest. Plus I had 4 placenta pills the day before and another 2 capsules in the morning! mmm... the power of the pills! I ended up having lots of energy, thus bringing Wei Yang to San Mateo visiting Hasnain, Zainab, and 5-month old Khalil. Khalil smiles a lot and is really cute! He's skinny and long... which makes Wei Yang quite chunky when compare with him. They were sooo cute when both of them were placed on the play mat! Wei Yang tried out Khalil's swinger. He loves it! Guess it's time to shop one from Craigslist!

Being a mom is indeed hard work; especially if it's only one person taking care of the baby. Imagine those single mom out there... plus they need to work. I salute! While Choon Ping is away, my average cumulative sleeping hours per day has been between 4-6 hours. Unfortunately they are all interrupted. I wish they're not. Else, think I won't be that sleep deprived. I can totally see my accelerated aging complexion! My wrinkles formation is increasing exponentially everyday!! My panda eyes are so obvious... *sigh* me sooo sad! :( On certain days, I do wish I could be like Toro the cat, just flop on anywhere, anytime and go to sleep. Ok, maybe not anywhere, but flopping on the bed sounds good to me.

Two more days, Choon Ping will be back... along with his parents. :D Yay! I can't wait to have a 4-hour straight of uninterrupted sleep. It's been a while since I had that.

hm... think I'm done unloading my brain for now... thanks to Jocelyn & Albert again for bringing me dinner... and bagels too! Signing off now... Zzz
