Happy 2-Month Birthday, Ethan!

I woke up Sunday morning and realized that I am now the mommy of a two-month old (well, eight-week old) infant. Ethan has grown. He looks much bigger than he used to be. He is 5.2kg now and 4cm longer than when he was born. When I look at the hundreds of pictures we’ve taken of him since hhe was born, there are clear signs of maturity. His eyes are less puffy now, his eyelashes are full and his eyebrows are starting to grow in.


It has been fun watching Ethan grown from a fresh-out-of-the-womb baby to a two-month old infant. He is so much more fun than he used to be. Last week, he started laughing while awake. He used to laugh in his sleep, but never before had he laughed in response to things he actually found funny. But now he’ll laugh when we play peek-a-boo & when we make funny faces. He likes us to talk to him & amazingly, he likes to take pictures.


However, Ethan has refused to sleep in his baby cot. He even demand to have his own room. That's why he has been sleeping in the other room than with us. I was kind of sad initially because I worry that he would not recognize who is his mommy later (His nanny, Susana is sleeping with him). But what can I do? He was extremely cranky when he slept in our room. We ended up with a tiring and exhausted night. Anyway, my friends have assured me that our baby will somehow bond to his own mommy. So I'm much relief now!


In the weeks and months to come, I look forward to seeing how much Ethan will change and grow! So happy two-month birthday, my precious boy. Mommy looks forward to many more.

Hey, how come Ethan prefer other rooms? Are there any changes that can be made to your room that will help him feel more comfortable?

I agree with your friends, at the end of the day, your child will bond with you most as you are the only one who can breastfeed him, haha.

Also, you and Feng will still be his role models even though there are many other adults around.

Thanks Max!

Hi Sis, we also don't understand why he prefer the guest room than ours. Maybe that room is familiar to him because he was there during confinement. Hmm... as long as he gets to sleep well, we have not much complaints d. Hey when are u coming back?

like the pics!now you understand how does it feel like being a mother right? dun stressed urself out. i think ethan would prefer a happy mummy than a frustated mummy. let the other party take care of him if u think it would be better that way. as long as the kid grows well. mummy is always mummy.

i totally can relate to u my dear..Kaylen's sleeping pattern is totally upside down..night turns into day, day turns into night..

somehow she prefers the living room to her own bed...prob the fengshui of the room's better than my room at my parent's..hopefully she'll get better when we finally go home after my confinement..

all i can do is pray, sometimes i find myself crying, have no idea where all the "emo-ness" came from but like u, it was initial hard to breastfeed & rather frustrating, feelings of giving up, being a lousy mother, but now we're getting along better than expected and i'm a happier bunny :)

*sigh* all this unspoken expectations & all the "challenges" a mother encounters somehow no one ever talks about them...

sending lots of love to the two of you & baby Ethan...
