15 Months!

Wow, it has been so long since my last update. And Princess#2 is already 15 months old now!
I hope I will be able to update more often from now on. It was a heck of a roller coaster ride for me for the past year. I can't even begin to tell you How much i went was close to hell. Well, i must say i thank God that i went through the ordeal tough as nails and now in the process of recovery. Sigh...emotional i was totally drained. Well, not forgetting having to juggle 2 toddlers at the same time. Im tempted to go out and get my a T that says Wonder Women! (ya, saw one at Cotton-on website the other day).

OK. Just a little update. Will try to make a more proper update on the girls next. Sorry gtg, princess #1 calling for milk. sigh.....

Up since 5.30am...

OK. Its now 9.30am. And BOTH my girls Princess#1(age 3.6) and Princess#2(6months) are WIDE AWAKE SINCE 5.30am!!! Goodness me....anyone can feel my pain?

Sleepless we go again!!

With my first child, I had sleepless nights for many months until she finally was able to sleep through for at least 4 hours straight. Those times was dreadful and left me dead tired day in day out.

However, as i mentioned in my previous post, my second princess was a lot easier! or so i thought. sigh.....
She was able to sleep long hours and able to sleep through the night by 2nd month. BUT!!! but but but......this have since changed for the past month or so. I have no idea what i did wrong but suddenly, she just couldn't sleep for long hours anymore! And.....she became highly active and wide awake in the middle of the night! Mostly between 4am-8am. My goodness....I am exhausted beyond words. By the time she goes to sleep, its already 8am in the morning....and in 2 hours time, Princess #1 awakes!! ahhh....helpppp!

Baby is turning 7 months old in a couple of days and suppose to be sleeping through the night already. I really need help!!
I wonder what went wrong? and how can i help her sleep through? oh i hope this nightmare ends soon.

Welcome Baby Princess V!!

Wow how time flies....I almost forgot i have this blog. I must say, ALOT have happened.
Baby V was born on 22nd Dec 2011!! a couple of days short of christmas! She is turning 3 months old next week. How time flies!
Look at the amount of exclamation marks im using. can tell i'm super excited to be a second time mom. Indeed every baby is different. Princess P and Princess V is quite different although there are similarities between them. Princess V is much easier to take care of. As compared to her sister. Perhaps i'm much more prepared and experienced too. Still, i'd like to give her credit. She is an easy baby to take care off. She doesn't cry for no reason and she is very easy to please. Loves to talk!! and smiles a lot.
I love both my princesses very very much. I love being a mom, its such a satisfying job!
Well, hope i have more time to update this blog. Till next time!

Prenancy : Week 21

So at week 21(5 months)! I'm now past my halfway mark. How time flies!
This second time around, i feel that time flies so much faster. Probably because i have an active toddler to look after, time just swift by so fast I hardly have any time to cherish the moment. Unlike having the first, i can observe my belly grow daily.....take time to talk and feel the baby...etc
But great news is that baby have been really active since we entered 21 weeks. I can feel her moving and kicking daily. Frankly speaking, i do feel rather scared this time around. I guess its because I KNOW how labour feels like. hehe....and the pain is NO JOKE. While pregnant with the first, i have no idea what i was in for. anxious yes but not scared. This time, anxious + scared.

I don't feel ready nor prepared at all for labour yet. I guess because this second pregnancy was unplanned and it sort of happend miraculously! She's a miracle. Unlike having my first, we tried for more than a year and i was so eager to be pregnant i was SOoooooooo ready. :)

Our last checkup confirmed that we are having another Girl! :)
She is very strong and healthy. Doctor says she is doing very well. My placenta was a little low last month but now its up. Doctor noticed a fibriod growth. But ensured us that it is not harmful nor cancerous at all. Its just a piece of hard meat there, and it will grow following the pregnancy but most likely will shrink after birth. Thats something that kinda bothered me a little.

At the moment, baby's position is transverse. Meaning her head is on my left and her legs on my right. Though im now only in my 2nd trimester and still there is plenty of time for baby to move. Hopefully she gets into the right position soon.

Pureen Mozzie Repellent (Rekito)

With a Toddler around, we tend to be extra careful wherever we go as living here in Malaysia, there are mosquitos everywhere. And we try our very best to minimize any form of contact our baby/toddlers have with them. Though sometimes it is inevitable, I do go to great lengths to ensure that my child is protected. I have tried many mosquito repellent liquids and this one from Pureen is my latest purchase. It cost about RM16.90. Smell very nice, DEET free,Alcohol Free, and safe for children.

However, do take note that it is recommended for children above 1 year of AGE. So better don't spray this on babies. There are other repellents suitable for babies too.  Even with my 2 year old, i don't spray this directly on her skin. I will only spray them on her clothes or if we are sitting down, i will spray this on the chair of some other objects near her. So far it works pretty well in preventing mozzie bites. :)

Ducth Lady Sweetcorn Milk (Special Edition)

My recent shopping at Jusco had me chance upon this uniquely flavored drink! Sweetcorn!
My little toddler is a picky eater. And she does not like her milk, therefore im always in a hunt for great tasting milk that she would drink willingly. Here is something special. Sweet corn flavored milk! It says its special edition so i don't know how long it will be in the market. But little princess is willing to drink it so its all good.
