I Heart Tarjay

Yep staying home is a danger to my credit card. I ordered more stuff from Target cuz getting packages in the mail is so much fun. Baby boy's clothing are usually so tacky cutesy or with yucky bright colors. Don't get me started but thank goodness for Dwell Studio and Splendid Littles for Target! Cheap and spiffy :)

Much to my dismay, at almost 9lbs Moggie is still too small even the New Born sizes. Bah :( Guess we'll have to wait a little bit before we can play dress up!

Look what I got for Moggie!

Trolls LoL

DH and I were chatting yesterday and the question of when babies start talking came up. No idea but no problem, I whip out my iPhone to google it. Here's what I found:

SO FUNNY because it's unexpected. Note the poster's name lol

Happy Friday!

Not really sure why it's happier than usual since I'm on maternity leave and everyday is Friday! Just some frivolous musings from the week.

My guilty pleasure this week was Pretty Little Liars on Hulu. I may be a little old for this but I can't wait for episode 16.

I'm always on the look out for shops with cute baby boy clothes (so hard to find!). Rediscovered Mini Boden. I love that the site has the same polka dot background!

You've probably seen this Volkswagen commercial already. So stinkin cute!

Lemming this cook book by Joanne Chang of Flour bakery. Flour was our favorite spot for morning coffee and baked goodies when we lived in Boston.

And this week I bought a baby weighing scale. I'm jealous of chubby babies and am on a mission to fatten Moggie.

My First Smile !

Moggie and I were hanging on the bed the other day and I was singing him silly songs. That's when he flashed a smile, and another, and another! Aww can't wait to see more ...

Happy 1 Month Moggie

Wow I can't believe it's been a month already. Moggie is now more than 7lbs. He's starting to smile more though mostly right before he dozes off. It's the cutest thing! He also stays awake for longer periods. Not surprisingly days and nights have been a blur. We're still learning to decipher his cries and how to soothe him (sometimes impossible haha). Essentially it's a guessing game that you repeat. Diapers? Hungry? Swaddle? Rock? Burp? Repeat. He's really quite high maintenance.

We haven't had time to plan a proper party but we made red eggs and sent cake to our friends and family. Grandma also made sticky rice, apparently a Chinese tradition, and we celebrated with some chestnut cake (I just polished up the left overs today) and wine.

Do you like the favor boxes? They are filled with red eggs :)

And more Moggie photos. Don't you love the little fingers?

First Pediatrician's Visit

I'm enjoying a nice peaceful afternoon :) DH and the grand parents are out so it's just me and Moggie. Thankfully he's sleeping for now and hopefully till the next feed at 4.30pm. Must catch up on some old posts and photos. Wow time really flies, I can't believe Moggie's almost a month old already!

Our first visit to Dr J was the Monday (12/27) following Moggie's discharge on Christmas when he was just a wee 6 day old newborn. Here we are waiting in the pediatrician's office and filling out paper work.

Overall a clean bill of health despite being in the NICU for 3 days. It's a long story starting with me having a fever during labor. That meant poor M needed to be on antibiotics for 2 days. While in the ICU, they discovered that M couldn't maintain his body temperature and that his heart beat was a tad irregular. These symptoms are actually pretty common in newborns though the doctors wanted to keep a close eye to be safe and charge the insurance company for a longer stay :p

M gained a couple ounces since leaving the hospital though he was not close to birth weight. That's OK, we had till 2 weeks. A goal I worked very hard on and achieved. Go team M&M :D

Scheduled a couple follow up visits with the pediatrician and cardiologist. The following visits were pretty uneventful. Definitely a good thing. M received a clean bill of health and is putting on weight. We'll find out how much further along he's progressing with weight gain at our 1 month visit on Friday. You can tell I'm a little obsessed with this weight thing since I'm worried about milk supply sigh.
