From daddy’s desk – Brae driving us up the wall

Our little boy is learning very fast. He now knows how to:

  1. Greet both of us by shrieking loudly
  2. Say “wo..wo” when he sees a dog
  3. Slurp noodles through his lips
  4. Suck water through a straw
  5. Crawl (a late starter so he’s making up for it by crawling very fast)
  6. Creep up to the edge of the bed and slowly peep over. Once his eyes clear the edge of the mattress and can view the floor, he will quickly pull his head back and turn around. He has fallen off the bed a 2nd time so he’s smarter now.
  7. Throw a temper tantrum when one of us leaves the room
  8. Demand that we feed him whatever we are eating

The last 2 items, when put together, made our past 2 nights a living hell. Wifey and I went to bed at 3am because of Brae.

Thursday night is dinner with Brae’s mah mah (paternal granny). This means only one thing for Brae, that mah mah will do almost anything to keep him happy. We had dinner at Dragon-i and of course, Brae’s tummy was full of la mian (a type of noodle) as well .

Back home, with Brae in the dining room and both of us in the kitchen preparing his meals for the next day, our smart champion (that’s what I called him nowadays) decided to cry. Cry, cry, cry, scream, scream, more screams. Probably took in a lot of air at the same time.

To calm him down, wifey gave him his goodnight milk feed. Halfway through the feed, he choked on his milk and started coughing. Cough, cough, cough, cough then suddenly he started to throw up.

EVERYTHING he ate since dinner came out. La mian, prunes, rice, meat, milk, water. I still haven’t figured out how so much vomit can come out of a little baby. He looked like a burst fire hydrant while vomiting.

Then, he started to wail, wail, wail. Probably because of the aftertaste in his mouth. We couldn’t cuddle him because he was very messy so we had to let him cry on while we quickly cleaned up. It took us an hour and a half to wash him, give him a warm shower, prepare his food for tomorrow before we could all go to bed.

Brae fell asleep the instant he hit the bed. Er….ok lah…..daddy also fell asleep together with him while mum was in the shower.

    Oh yea, I’ve seen those projectile-liked puke before. It’s kinda scary huh? Brae and Belle are at the age where separation anxiety is at its highest peak. I’ve heard it will last till they are 18 mths old.
