She starts learning crawling we believe.
When we put her down on bed, she likes to roll over to her tummy position, all the time. She can move herself to left and right, sometimes 180 degree, like a clock, when she wants to reach out of her toys or us;
and she also likes to move backward using her hand.
Now she's trying to lift up her bottom to move forward. Vic said baby Nicole knows how to pose downward facing dog position,
Hehe, my yoga baby :D
BB also start holding her own bottle when we feed her.
Normally she stops drinking when there is 1 ounce of milk left in the bottle.
Few days ago I let her hold the bottle herself, and she can do it pretty well and continue drinking the remaining.
Now I'll just let her play with the milk bottle at the end of feeding.
Sometimes she pokes the nipple wrongly to her nose, and sometimes she spills milk all over the place, or even drop the bottle, but that doesn't matter at all.
I like to see her playing while learning new skills everyday ~
Suddenly wondered why I have such a good mood this morning, then realized it's because of my little baby :)
She always have very good mood in morning, and I really enjoy the our time together every morning (if I don't need to rush to work for meeting).
She likes to play herself in her cot, turn around, play and messing up with her toys, calling us to hug her...
Sometimes I'll put her with us on our bed. She likes to turn and trying to touch my nose. When she did finally, she will give me a big sweet smile :)
Today, I can hear her baby talk to me:
My sweetie, when can I hear you calling me "mommy"? :)

Baby is coming anytime...
Having false alarm since last Monday,
contraction started, not very painful but yet I could not sleep whole night.
Again, yesterday I think I lost part of my mucous plug,
and the contraction at night starting to be quite painful.
I thought today is the day,
yet another false alarm.
I can't wait to hold my little princess in my hand
and see her smiling at me ~
for a safe delivery for both my baby and myself ~

Vic also showed the kids our soft toy collections, including our Yong Mei and doggies. The kid asked if we have a shark. Vic then showed them the Shamu we bought from Sea World. The kid said: " This is not shark, this is killer whale". haha, you know your fish, kid...
Nowadays, kids are really smart. Most kids staying in our apartments are really well-mannered. They smile and greet you in lift. They are not too shy or quiet, very polite and well-mannered, yet still maintained their innocents and cuteness. I believe they have been raised and educated well by their parents. I guess patient, consistency and role-modeling is the key. Hopefully next time my little princess would be as cute and well-trained like these kids :)

4 sessions with 3 hours each, every Saturday from today onwards, we are going to learn a lot of pregnancy related knowledge, from preparation of parenthood, breast feeding, ante-natal exercise, delivery process to taking care of new born. What I like the most of today class is, our instructor threw us a lot of questions that we, as a couple, need to think about, before the baby is born.
An example is about the change of life. There will be lots of changes, either lifestyle, couple relationships or financial, that as couple, we do really need to sit down and discuss about it, and decide what would be best for both of us and the family. One question she asked was, do we want to put the baby as the center of our universe, or just part of our universe. Time management is very important for new parents especially. Sometimes couple might forgot about themselves or the spouse as they pay more attention to the baby, and it's actually not good to the couple relationship. I agree with this too. To me, even after having baby, I still want to have some time to myself or just me and him. One couple in the class said they have already planed for a trip together after the baby is born! I guess it's time for me and Victor to think more about this and plan for our future family lifestyle. After the baby is born, does it mean we cannot go travel, or cannot pak-tor just 2 of us anymore... ?
Another important thing that the instructor brought up is about role modeling, and that's the most important 'teaching' that we can do for our baby. I always want my kids to read more, then playing video games or watching too much TV during the early stage, but to achieve this, I guess we need to give a good example for the baby too, that's a lifestyle change from our side as well... =P
Most of the things taught in the class were kind of common sense, but sometimes we just don't really have detail thought about it, and without proper planning and thinking, time might just pass through and we might not do the right thing at right time, and by the time we realize, things might not go well the way we want it to be...
Moving into the new stage of my life, there are lots of things to prepare and to adapt with. I'm no longer the young and innocent girl who can do whatever I like. Sometimes when I'm alone, I can read a book overnight or watching TVB series until 4am. Now, I'm not just 'myself' anymore, I'm a wife, and going to be a mother soon. Am I ready for it....?

or anytime when he wanna talk to her.
Wonder next time she will ever remember this little moment with daddy :)
In the treetop
When the wind blows
The cradle will rock
When the bough breaks
The cradle will fall
And down will come baby
Cradle and all
Baby is drowsing
Cosy and fair
Mother sits near
In her rocking chair
Forward and back
The cradle she swings
And though baby sleeps
He hears what she sings
From the high rooftops
Down to the sea
No one's as dear
As baby to me
Wee little fingers
Eyes wide and bright
Now sound asleep
Until morning light

Time flies… it’s already 6 months+. Once a while, I still can’t believe that I’ll be a mother very very soon. This is a little bit of surprise to both of us, but we are both happy about this sweet little surprise. Still remember when my monthly was late that time for 1-2 weeks, I already suspected about it. I could feel something is changing in my body, it’s just some kind of woman’s sixth sense, can’t explain it. The result from tester showed that my sixth sense is accurate ^^
I don’t know how I went through the first trimester. That’s was the toughest time for most preggies. I got tired easily that time, no mood to do anything, except sleep. No more facebook, no more shopping, no more chatting with friends, I had no energy to think of any other stuffs, my life was just eat, work and sleep, nothing else. I’m glad that finally I went through that time safely, and 2nd trimester was the most comfortable time. Finally I was back to normal, and I can start dressing up nicer, shopping for Christmas, plan for Christmas dinner in our apartment, and even went for a trip to Singapore and Sentosa!
Now it’s the start of 3rd trimester. Stomach getting bigger and bigger, and it’s now time to start buying all necessities to welcome the new family members. Shopping time again, and I really like to see those little clothes and little mitten, so cute ~~ Anyway, having a baby is expensive…
Having someone in your body is really an amazing experience, I just wish I can stay happy and optimistic most of time, so it can pass down to her and make her a happy baby next time :)
