Long Weekend With Yining

It's a long weekend this week! Although we bring Yining home everyday from Grandma's place, we only spend that 2 to 3 hours with her before she sleeps. It's only during the weekends that we get to spend more time with her. This long weekend gave us 1 extra solid day with her. It's very important for establishing of trust and bond between us and Yining.

On Friday, we brought her to Changi Airport. I find that it's one of the most children friendly places I can find ever since we had Yining. We had our lunch at 食在旺 (Simply Wang). Again the choice of the place is because it has ample space for us to wheel in the pram and have Yining sitting in the pram while we have our meals.

Yining had her meal there too, but of course it's her usual 3 hourly milk.

Yining was very curious when we walked around with her in the pram, so curious she protested when we laid the pram flat for her to lie down. She wanted to sit up and see the people and the surrounding. This curious kid's head is still not stable, so we couldn't let her do so for a long period of time. :)

We spent quite a fair bit of time that day, partly because we were trying to escape the terribly hot weather outside. Yining enjoyed the aircon the most actually. She slept for a good hour or so.

On Sunday, we brought her to Liang Court after going for a baby product sale at Chai Chee. Nothing much for kids at Liang Court, but we wanted to have lunch and just have a walk, rather than just cooping her at home. And of course, Yining has to be satisfied before we can settle on our meals.

The curious baby as usual was turning her head all over the place to look at people and flashing her 'killer smile' at strangers who stopped to play with her.

Anyway this outing was a quick one, Mummy and me had to rest too. :) It's back to work after the long weekend. I'm looking forward to the coming weekend to spend time with Yining again.

To end this post, I present to you, Yining, The Happy Baby. Hope it makes your day. :)

Cranky Yining

This weekend is tiring. For some reason, Yining's been really cranky. She either refuses to sleep, or she wants us to carry her while she's sleeping. When we laid her the bed, she started wailing immediately.

This was unlike her. Yining seldom make such a big fuss. In fact we don't get her crying everyday. Most of the she will just pout and whine abit. She's sleeping right now, took us quite some effort to get her to sleep.

Hopefully this only for this weekend. Mummy and me loves Yining. We hate to see her crying and screaming at the top of her voice.

My very active baby girl

My baby girl wakes up early in the morning, as early as 5am sometimes. Sometimes she will want to "chat" with us, but mostly she will play on her own.

This morning, she was crying for attention. Think she woke up too early and was getting bored. So we turned on the musical toy at her cot and there she goes, with her exercise regime.

Post vaccination fever

Prior to Yining's vaccination, we were already preparing for her to run a fever after the jab. I'm pretty paranoid about fever because a colleague's baby contracted meningitis and had to be admitted to hospital for 3 weeks. My colleague was pretty shaken and reminded me to be extra careful about fever.

Anyway, we gave Yining Panadol for infants when we got back home from the clinic. She was still as playful, and didn't show any signs of fever. Huge relief for me and Mommy.

Unfortunately, her fever started at about 9pm at night. We took the first reading and it was 38.1 degree celsius. We quickly gave her another round of Panadol and settled her to sleep. After that we were taking temperature at regular intervals.

I guess the medication kicked in after 1am. Her temperature was at about 37.5 degree celsius and hovering around that. Finally at 4am, it was back to about 36.9 to 37.2. That was a safe range since we always take her temperature even when she was well.

Despite having anticipated the fever, we were still thrown off guard. We still need to continue with the taking of temperature because some babies can continue to have the fever on and off for the next 2 days or so.

Yining's 2nd vaccination @ 3 months

Yining had her jab for DPT and Pneumococcal yesterday, 7th May 2010.

Contrary to what we expected, she didn't create a huge racket at the clinic when the jab was administered. I guess, our pediatrician's experience played a part too. She's really patient with babies and definitely has her way dealing with them.

Videos tells the story much more than word do.

Debut of Yining's Baby Diary

Hi, I'm Yining's Daddy. Welcome to my baby girl's blog.

I wish I had done this earlier because my baby girl is 3 months now. So there's quite alot of catching up for me to do to get this blog up to date. I'm trying to keep a diary of my baby girl's growing up journey and let her reminisce on her childhood memories when she grows up.

Of course, this is also Mommy and Daddy's journey with our baby as we grow with her. :)
