What are my thoughts now that I am 6 mths along

Actually I have had many thoughts and some ongoing thoughts. hmm. sounds very complicated.

First of all, I would like to announce no.2's nickname. It will be Cookie, for tough cookie. Cos I walked around seoul and busan until legs feel like falling off, and still Cookie can kick me so hard at times. And we also survived a fall in the bathroom in the 1st trimester. SHHHH.. my in laws and parents doesn't know 'x' And we also survived on plain porridge for 3 days when I had diarrhea (not just diarrhea, I also vomited) just days before CNY. Grr..

Anyway, back to my thoughts..

What I worry most is would our routine will go haywire. I think this is inevitable. What I can do now, is think of how to lessen, reduce the impact. I need to talk to Oink on this.  I really like our dynamics now. We each know our role, and what to do everyday, and the arrival of no. 2 will for sure change this a lot. But oh well, we shall see and re-adjust. I always believe everything will end well in the end.

My next worry, is how will Tomato accept the new addition to the new family. She would have to share the attention, love, time, everything with the new BB. She is always so attached to me. Likes to cuddle up to me. By the time new BB  comes, she will need to share her human. I am ready for the worse, but I hope she will slowly adjust and accept. Remind self that no matter how busy I will be, I need to make some time to spend 1 on 1 time with her.

For this pregnancy, I somehow takes things easier. I do not keep my diet as strict as my first pregnancy (I think that lead to my food poisoning case before CNY 'x'). I moved more, walk more, still carry Tomato sometimes. I knew what to do, what mistake to not repeat. For one thing, I shall pack bb's daddy one more set of cloth this time in my hospital bag, cos I puked all over him during my last labor, and he had no clothes to change until 3 hours later when MIL came... LOL...oops.

Another thing is the gender of the Baby. We know the gender dy. And heard Fil hope this time is a boy. BUT! I cant control all this right.  What will be will be. :)

I worry, I can't love Cookie as I have spent all my love on Tomato. I have this thought earlier on, but I have grew to love Cookie, and am surprised that my heart can be so big and capable of great love.

I missed wearing nice pretty clothes, and have been looking at online boutiques and thinking when-lah can I wear non-loose clothes again. Shopping, I will come back to you soon, I promise..LOL

Let me end this post with a photo of Tomato. This blog need some photos.

AHAHAHAHA....a photo of her showing her mouth full of carbonara 'x' @ sharing planet

My Pre-K princess

So, my girl has started schooling this year. She will turn 3 anyway by may. We thought it will be a great idea to expose her school environment and to better prepare her for kindy. Besides, its much better than watching cartoons at nanny's.

So when she started school, it didn't go as expected. You can read my ordeal here.

Now, 3 mths after, things has been good. She finishes her bento almost everyday *beaming with pride*. And, she's suddenly improved a lot on her speech, her pronunciation has gotten much much better. She can sing so many songs nowadays, some new songs she learned from school. And last night she did the school's cheer. She also don't get sick as often as before now. Things has been looking good. :)

When asked if she likes to go school, she will say she likes it, when asked what she did at school, she said “吃东西” what the !!! AHAHAHA, and proceed to tell you what she ate. Anyway, its good to know she enjoyed what we prepared for her. We try to prepare different things everyday. I try to include fruits into her bento. Be it strawberries (her fav), grapes, apple slice or pear slice. She put on her own socks and shoes everyday. *SMUG*

Since she has been singing a lot, she tries to delay her bed time by SINGING!!! Among her favourites are ABC song, Twinkle twinkle little star and 我的朋友在那里?Most of the time, I will be asleep before her 'x' So nowadays, I don't play songs on the phone anymore for the baby in my belly since jie jie will sing every night. And baby will be kicking in the belly as response. :)
