Dan turns 7 months old!
How you have grown! You are 7 months old today! It’s been a joy seeing you develop over the months and I’m sure you enjoyed the culinary adventure over this past month.
You are very much attached to me and since you can recognise faces now, it’s all the more difficult for me to get your Ah Gong or any other persons to look after you, even for a short while. You will cry non-stop till I come back and seeing your tears makes me guilty. You must understand that I need time off and I cannot always stick with you. I do need a break, my dear boy. Very soon, you will realise that your doting grandfather is fun to be with!
Your two lower teeth have finally appeared and that also means that we could have easier nights as compared to the weeks that you were teething. I know it really hurt you but that is part of growing up!
I thought I heard you cry out “Mama, Mama” for me to come to you, especially in the morning. I wasn’t hearing things, was I?
You adore your sister and was so tickled by her silly jokes each time we went to fetch her from school. I hope you will continue to look up to her because she is really an awesome sister. She holds no ill feelings towards you even though she gets ticked off because of you. See, she has a magnanimous heart. Learn from her!
These pictures were taken shortly after the March school holidays and your rash/eczema got so bad that we had to sent you to the dermatologist who prescribed a mild steroid and antibiotic cream for you. It wasn’t the best solution but since natural remedies didn’t help and your condition worsened each day, I felt like I was at wit’s end and decided to resort this form of medication. Thankfully, it really healed and till today, your condition is under control. We are praying that it won’t flare up again!
Mama and Papa love you and your sister a lot. Continue to grow well!
