25 Apr 2007 - Night without Jerlene

I was not feeling well last night and as I try not to pass virus to Jerlene, I slept alone in my study room. That was the first night when I slept in a different room as Jerlene. Did not sleep well the entire night.....not sure whether it is because of my sickness or it is because Jerlene is not beside me.

I am on MC today but I still try not to stay too close to Jerlene. Wanted to carry her so much but no choice have to refrain from it till I get better. I even put on a mask when I want to see her and talk to her......... Hope I can recover soon and play with Jerlene again........

21 Apr 2007 - Sleeping Beauty

Jerlene really sleeps a lot nowadays. Her night sleep is getting longer and longer........and last night, she set a record of 11 hours (8pm to 7am) of sleep. It's definitely a good thing for both Tracy and myself but we are now worried that she does not have sufficient feed. Normally baby at this age requires 6-8 feed per day. However, because Jerlene has been sleeping through the night, she only drink milk during the day and at most drink 5-6 feed per day. Somemore she doesn't like milk recently. It has been quite difficult to feed her as she will struggle and struggle when we try to feed her. She need people to sing song to her and at the same time praise her clever girl then she will start drinking. I have been changing lyrics to a number of nursery rhymes to praise Jerlene. One example is I've changed the lyrics of "Mary had a Little Lamb" to

"Jerlene is a clever girl, clever girl, clever girl"
"Jerlene is a clever girl, Jerlene is a clever girl"

12 Apr 2007 - My DIVA!

Singing is one of my biggest passion. So singing to Jerlene should not be a surprise to anyone who knows me. Have been singing to her since her "arrival" but it was until today that she started to sing along with me! Previously when I sang to her, she just quietly stared at me like her idol. And now, she will "uh-uh-uh-oh-uh-oh" while I am singing. However, I realize that she does not respond to all songs. She seems to especially like the song "一千年以后" by "林俊杰". Although she can only "uh-uh-oh-uh", to me it really sounds so beautifully. Will upload her "singing" once I find out how to do it. It'll be good if someone can enlighten me. :)

8 Apr 2007 - Smile Smile Smile

The morning smile continues........ And it's getting longer and longer........ Every morning when Jerlene wakes up, I'm always ready with the camera because I simply cannot resist taking pictures of her lovely smile. Can you resist these.......?

3 Apr 2007 - Musical Mobile

Jerlene is finally responding to the musical mobile. For the past two months, Jerlene has been ignoring the musical mobile. Even when we put it directly above her, she will just turn away. We thought it's so useless and almost wanted to give it away. Then these few days, she started to respond to it. Her eyes will follow those plushies round and round. Best thing is, she will get distracted by the mobile and stop crying, at least for a while...... :) Our only regret is we did not buy an electronic one. The one that we bought need to wind and can only last about 5 mins. When the music stops, Jerlene will shout for us to wind it again....quite tiring sometimes......hehe.......
