4 Months Old

Baby Erin is already 4 months old. How time flies!

About her -

Weight : 5.5kg

1. She smiles A LOT!!! I don't think I've seen such a smiley baby before. Just need to talk to her and she often smiles in return.

2. She's such a good natured baby. My parents often comment that she's relatively easy to look after. No need to carry her that much and she usually only cries when she's sleepy or hungry. Not too difficult to let her sleep (baby Elyssa used to scream the house down!) and once she's asleep the other 4 kids can practically bring the house down but she'll be blissfully in dreamland :)
She's the frequent holder of the "most well-behaved grandchild" award! He hee... a refreshing change from Elyssa who normally holds the award for the other end of the spectrum ;)

3. She drinks 4oz of milk every 3 hours. I'm not producing enough these days, so she gets 1 bottle of formula a day. No problems switching between breastmilk and formula.

4. Potentially another greedy girl! Once, my mum mistakenly told the maid to feed her one hour earlier than normal : Glug, glug, glug - she finished everything.
Another time, I pumped out 5oz and since I didn't have any extra sterilised bottles for storage, I gave the whole amount to her : Again, Glug, glug, glug, she finished everything.

5. She smiles when she wakes up in the morning. A wonderful start to our day!
(Baby Elyssa used to cry if we don't pick her up immediately. Till today, she cries if we don't give her attention the moment she wakes up)

6. Last weekend, our contractor took one look at her and said "Oh, her eyes are droopy. She just woke up issit?" Oh dear! Nope.....she was wide AWAKE at that time. Not the first time we received comments like that either. Erin's eyes are rather small, especially in comparison with Elyssa who has huge and beautiful eyes.

7. She sleeps around 10+pm until around 7am. Wakes up once (occasionally twice) for milk. She doesn't take much though - just suckles for a little while then falls back asleep.
Yay! I normally get a good nights rest!

Wadya looking at?

With Elyssa jie jie

You know Adrine, after I had my William, I start to notice other people's children - in terms of easy/hard to take care. And my conclusion is this... if one is easy, the other is difficult, but not necessary in that order. I have another friend with a easy first child, but very difficult second child.

Love Erin's smiles! Enjoy her!

Unknown said...

Oh, and she is much much fairer than Elyssa! Guess you have gotten many of that comment too?

Adrine said...

Irene - Oh, never realised it! Luckily it's like that....if both also difficult, I sure pengsan already! ;) And yup Erin gets compliments about her complexion - fair and pink!

Lovely siblings!~

Her eyes are slightly small. It's too bad that the benchmark is Elyssa! Luckily she has her plus points (fair, smiley etc) as well as a dimple.

Daddy said...

Hei...she is so cute!! Chenya is also a happy baby and just like yours, she will smile and play on her own when she woke up...brightens up the entire day just be looking at her.....

Alice said...

there's old ppl saying that don't compliment the baby in front of her, very 'siu hei'.....hehe....btw, smiley baby always make our day!

Mummy Gwen said...

Yes, time flies! So glad to know that Baby Erin is an easy baby. Every mom's dream baby. :) Gwen was easy to take care too but not smiley though.

I noticed Baby Erin is quite fair too.

Unknown said...

I like her smile too. She looks just like you.

Erin is a very happy baby. She must got lots of love from her jie-jie plus great nutrition from her mummy's effort :)

Baby Erin is so cute!

Mine is not difficult but horrible at napping. However I don't have anyone to compare it with too just my person opinion. Mine has never napped good!

How's che che coping now?

btw thanks for the diapers info! I'm in the process of "moving" to a new home. I have so much back dated post if I ever get around to it.
