Merry X'mas Everyone!
Max would like to wish everyone a very merry xmas!
Last night at the Chai house, we had a big turkey dinner, even though it's just the three of us and Max only had milk. There was no stopping mommy and daddy cooking a turkey because we've decided to make it a family tradition to always have turkey on Xmas eve. We've also made it a family tradition to exchange gifts after Xmas so we don't get caught up in the holiday shopping and get ripped off! We put Max in the Xmas outfit that Grandma Annie bought for him. Too bad it's too hot in Singapore, otherwise, he can wear it all day! On it, it says "My First Xmas". We took a family photo by the turkey and it's a good thing that the photo was taken rather far away, because mommy looks more pregnant now than when she was pregnant!
Max gave mommy a few Xmas presents. The first one - Max has been smiling at mommy! We're not sure if he's smiling intentionally but it's definitely different than the "passing gas" smile that he had since birth. These smiles are a little bigger. His eyes are wide open and looking straight at us. But sometimes Max cries right after he smiles. So we're not sure if he's smiling because he's happy or... he just felt like smiling. The second present - Max slept for almost 6 hours through the night! He had a feeding at 9:30pm last night, and then went to bed around 10pm. Mommy woke up around 3:30am and found Max still sound asleep in his crib. Mommy decided to express milk while waiting for Max to wake up. He finally woke up at 4am and then managed to poop in his diaper right after mommy changed him. Obviously oblivious to the cost of the diaper. He was fed at 4:30am and went back to sleep. This was the longest that he's ever slept - close to 6 hours! It was the best Xmas gift to mommy indeed.
