So following the mention of the visit to the Mutterberatung (Mothers Office), here is what was recorded at that visit:
(i know that are individuals, namely ………… [u know who u are], who are very interested 😉
As of 13 January 2006, Tobias is 19months & 3weeks old. He is 12kg530g in weight, 86.5cm in height & measures 48cm circumference of his head. He has 14 teeth (Correction!! 16 teeth). He eats everything an adult can eat.
Below is a family shot, taken in London at the London Bridge, December 2005.
i, Mummy, had alone time today – a few hours alone without hubby & son. i started needing this after more than a year of being mummy 24/7. i never really needed this alone time before – that’s Change No. 1.
Change No. 2. – i spent time today shopping alone & guess what i was shopping for … baby stuff!!
Change No. 3. – a warm & fuzzy feeling comes over me when i see my hubby carrying my sleeping son, walking towards me. A feeling that never existed before.
We, Mummy & Daddy, have always tried to make a point that having baby will not vastly change our lifestyles but these changes do happen, not all are desirable, but definitely they are not completely bad – esp. the ones mentioned above. The changes remind one that, “Hey, things now have to include a little person.” & Change No. 3. i think is one of the best parts.
To all tired mums & mums-to-be … think warm fuzzy thots … all is a phase, it will pass … they are angels, at times 😉 … it will all be worth it (esp. when they have babies of their own – my mum said this to me countless times & i finally understand!)
Well, nice to see that a few have come & had a read & left their mark.
Tobi sang his 1st Chinese Song today – he has sung in chinese before – but never a whole song & never on his own. Today while waiting for our turn at the Mutterberatung (Mothers Service/Office – a place where they check & measure your kid for free & give whatever advice u might need), it was a really long wait (more than 1hr), Tobi sat on a ride-around car & sang “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” in Chinese, the whole song, by himself. i was going to type out the words in HanYuPinYin – but they didn’t have it on the VCD so … i’m too lazy to try & pin all the words out. You will just have to wait to hear it for yourselves then 😉
