Two new records have been set. Here’s the scoop…
Yesterday I tar-powed Belacan Fried Rice for Pete and myself for dinner because Pete was on leave. I then picked Ethan up from the baby sitter’s and arrived home around 6:45p.m. When Pete and I were having dinner, we put Ethan in his high chair and gave him his grape-flavored yogurt, which he absolutely adores. After a few spoonfuls, he showed interest in the Belacan Fried Rice instead, demanding loudly for it and gesturing that I gave some to him. So okay la, I gave him a couple of spoonfuls, not before warning him that it was slightly spicy though. Our boy enjoyed the rice and the yogurt tremendously, had some water to go with it and after dinner, he played around with his toys and watched TV. I sliced a mango for dessert, so we all enjoyed it as well. I went about my usual errands: washing the milk bottles, preparing my working clothes for the following day, doing a round of laundry….the works. After I had taken my shower, it was already 8:30p.m. and I prepared Ethan for his shower instead. By the time he was done and all dressed in his peejays, it was about 8:50p.m.
Do you notice something different? Do you see where I am getting at? No?
Ethan did not ask for milk AT ALL since we arrived back home! Usually as soon as we reached home and unpacked, he would come over to me, hug my legs and request for milk, and it usually happens around 7p.m. But nuh-uh, that did not happen at all today. And I only breastfed him after his shower. That’s a significant achievement in terms of not asking for milk!
After the breastfeeding session he slept for about an hour….. and we discovered that it was really only a nap because he woke up in alarm when Pete tried to trim his nails! SIGH…we really need to educate Ethan on the importance of trimming nails. Because he squirms and evades us when we try to trim his nails when he is awake, Pete has to do the deed only when Ethan is in slumberland.
So after he woke up, he was his playful self again, running around the house (yes, at 10p.m. +). And he only fell asleep when it was past 11p.m. *This* time he slept till way past 5a.m. in his cot. And that’s another record and MAJOR achievement worth noting down. *grins*
We’d like to see more of these records, please… 🙂
