After a few weeks of spending time alone at home with mommy, finally rescue team has arrived! Yeah! Grandpa and grandma are visiting us from Taipei. This is grandma's third visit to Singapore but grandpa's first. The first day, Max stared at them for a very long time, just watching, and looking. Probably wondering who these people are. After a few days together, he has warmed up to them and loves to giggle when they are playing with him. Grandpa and grandma have been very independent and went around to explore by themselves. This past weekend, we took our first family vacation and spent 1 night in Sentosa. Sentosa is only 10 minutes taxi ride away, but yet it really does feel like worlds apart. Max went with us to explored new places and behaved very well. He'd always fall asleep when we're eating and sit quietly in his car seat with eyes wide open, trying to take in everything around him. Grandpa and grandma loved holding him and mommy is a little worried that he will want to be carried all the time after they leave.
We're trying to pin down a schedule for Max's daily activities. Now Max wakes up between 7am-8am. We then play, read or sing. Two hours later, it's time for a nap because Max will become very grouchy and fussy. He naps between 45 minutes to 1hour. After he wakes up, will stay awake for 2 hours and then take another nap. Mommy wishes that he can take a long nap in the afternoon for about 2 hours but he hardly does. Instead, he takes 3 short naps. Finally we give him a bath between 7pm-7:30pm, followed by a bottle. We put him to bed afterward and he is usually in bed by 8pm. However, the aforementioned schedule doesn't apply to the last 2 days because Max went out with the family for dinner. Also, in terms of breastfeeding, mommy noticed that Max takes short time to feed. He finishes in 15 minutes on each breast and sometimes even short and is good to go. Breastfeeding is not as painful anymore and mommy is starting to enjoy it more!
