Already 6 months??!

Our baby girl is already 6 months old! Here's a snippet of what her daily routine is like:

  • Up between 6:30 - 7:30am.
  • Get ready to leave the house by 8:15am.
  • Arrive at sitter's house by 8:30am.
  • Sophie plays.. sings.. eat.. watch baby Einstein with her BFF - Leah (sitter's daughter who is about 7 months older). In between all those activities she poops and naps too :) If the weather is nice, they go out for fresh air.
  • Grandparents pick up around 3:30pm.
  • Hang out w/ grandparents until mommy & daddy come between 5:30 - 6:30pm.
  • Have dinner w/ grandparents then go home around 7:30pm.
  • Take a bath and go to sleep between 8:30 - 9pm.
Sophia does not sleep through the night yet. She wakes up sometimes around midnight then once more around 4am. If we're lucky, she only wakes up once around 3:30am. She usually wake up for feeding then go right back to sleep which is not TOO bad.

Sophie has been a little fussy this couple days because she's teething. Yup, we can see one little white spike coming through her front lower gum. Sophie can also sit by herself with little support. She loves toys with music/sound. Pacifier used to help her to sleep but now she doesn't care much about it. She sleeps with her buddy - soft toy giraffe.

We started Sophie on solid food around 4 1/2 months: rice cereal> avocado> oatmeal> apple sauce> butternut squash> pear sauce> carrots> kabocha squash - she likes them all :) She loves to eat! We'll try yam next. Other suggestions?

As for us, we're enjoying parenthood. Sophie is our pride and joy. Doesn't matter if we had a stressful day at work. As soon as we walk through the door and see our sunshine smiling/laughing and kicking her feet, everything is forgotten! She is growing up so fast right in front of our eyes. We thank the Lord everyday for giving us such a cutie pie :)

@ 2 weeks

Sophia finally came into this world on 9/14/09. She weigh 9lbs 14oz and 21.25" long. I can't really tell who she looks like. She has daddy's lips, and maybe my nose?

Sophia had her 2 weeks doctor visit today. Now she weigh 10lbs 2oz and 23" long. Yeah, big girl! She eats / poops / sleeps well. Occasionally she fusses and wouldn't go back to bed. She sleeps about 3 - 4 hours between feedings. Yeah, we love her! :) She's a keeper!

Ok, you be the judge.. does she look more like mommy or daddy?

Any day now..

I am still getting around.. Some days are easier than others, otherwise I'm feeling good. Sleeping schedule is not great though. Maybe I'm getting an early start with baby schedule. Some nights I wake up every hour feeling restless and some nights I can sleep 4 hours at a time. Yes, still working. Doc. predict Baby Chu will arrive sometimes between 9/1 - 9/7 and should weigh between 7 3/4 - 8lbs. So no, not twins! Yes, I have random people came up to me asking if I'm having twins. Hospital bag is packed and car seat is installed. We'll just have to wait patiently now...

Shower with love...

Baby Chu now have a crib, swing, bouncer, bassinet, bath tub, high chair, stroller, baby monitor, lots of clothes, and many more stuff. Eric and I don't think we have all that when we were a baby! No, I did not go crazy w/ shopping. Most of the stuff are hand-me-down and the rest are gifts from family and friends. Baby Chu already loved by many. One lucky baby! :)

We had our check-up last week. Baby Chu estimated weight is 5lbs. My family doesn't think that's accurate though because they think I look like I'm carrying twins! Doctor said only ONE in there :) I passed the glucose test also. So all is well. We already did the hospital tour. Oh my hospital bag is also packed. We'll be taking the birth class this coming Sunday, 10am - 4pm!!!

I'm officially heavier than Eric @ 7 months. I did my glucose test two weeks ago. Didn't hear back from my doctor so hopefully I passed. I'm going for another round of u/s in a few weeks. Baby Chu is quite active these days. I'll feel / see the kick whenever I sit too long. Baby room still not set up nor hospital bag is packed. I'm getting a bit nervous these days thinking what if Baby Chu decided to come early. We did however sign up for the birthing class and hospital tour though. That's a good start right? :)
