Faith has been growing stronger each passing week. Every morning she wakes up, she would exercise – kicking. She loves doing that a lot. And when I put on the Lamaze’s booties and wristbands, she kicks all the more vigorous! She must be loving the jiggles that come with all those shaking!
Faith is starting to understand that she has fingers; she keeps staring at her left hand while I leave her alone in the rocker. Having said that, now she can be left on her own while I cook or bake which is really marvellous. She manages to sit patiently in the rocker while I have my lunch too! Awesome! Of course, if I leave her too long in it, she would fuss. But on the whole, things have improved so much!
It’s no coincidence that Faith could sleep through the night. She has been able to do that since her second month and this continues till today! Hurray! Apart from the few occasions when she called out to have her feed, we are very much thankful that she could sleep through most of the time. 8+pm to 6+am.
A problem that we are facing is that she keeps drooling and pulling her hair! Her saliva causes rashes below her mouth which irks me. And she keeps pulling her hair! I think I should seriously consider shaving her!
My 4-month maternity leave is almost coming to an end and it’s time to think and consider how I should transit back to work after the next 2 months of No Pay Leave. Time to train Faith, get her to visit my parents more as she can recognise faces now and to get her to drink from the bottles again.
Oh! There’s really quite a fair bit of stuff to do to ensure smooth transition! Time to start the work engine too!
