Max's First Xmas Party
On Sunday, we went to Daddy's college friend Alvin's for a X'mas party. Alvin and wife Pam have 4 kids together, and they've been so generous with us. Not only did they gave us lots of advice on parenthood, they also gave us lots of hand-me-downs. Max doesn't need to buy any clothes before the age of 1 because his closet is now stuffed with Matthew and Maurice's (boy on left) old clothes. For this year's X'mas party, they had invited a lot of friends over and catered from a Chinese restaurant. Max got a X'mas gift too! There were lots of kids at the party, but unfortunately, Max is too young to play with any of them. So he was sleeping in the stroller most of the time but daddy had a good time chasing Maurice around. At one point during the party, mommy had to change Max. When we got to the ladies room, found that there was no changing table, so we took out the changing pad and changed Max on a bench. Half way through changing, Max spit up, and mommy quickly took out tissue to wipe his mouth. Before you knew it, Max peed and needed to be changed. Mommy was very busy and clumsy, and Max was NOT happy about it and started crying very loud. It was a reminder that mommy needs to learn how to do diaper duty/changing outfit better and faster.
So apparently going out during the day really helps Max to sleep better at night. After a feed at 8pm, Max woke up again at 11:30pm, and then again at 3:30am, and then at 6am. Mommy was so happy about being getting the extra sleep. Hopefully Max can make a habit of this schedule!
