In case you guys missed out the first month's update, the pics had been recovered. You can read the post right *here*
So what was he like in the second month?
He also learned to sleep through the night without any milk after his 12am milk milk time...which is rare for babies at two months I heard. The next time he woke up for milk was around 6am every day. Damn good boy lah. But we wished that he would sleep earlier tho and wouldn't fuss so much before he sleeps.
So cute I wanna explode 😘😍😘
The cutest expression is definitely his smile 😍😍😍
He learned how to smile genuinely at those who are close to him during his second month. Before this he smiled but it was known as "fake smile" or "reflex smile". It was just his muscle moving his mouth into a smile with no purpose.
Zyon nearly got admitted into the hospital again coz of viral infection. This was taken at the hospital's emergency ward
The story is this... I brought Zyon to the government clinic to get some nasal spray for his phlegm. He had been having terrible phlegm coz my dad passed down his flu to him (Poor boy 😕 First month mama passed down cough to him and second month he got the flu 😑) Manatau when I was at the clinic, the doctor said his fever is too high and needed to be admitted. I didn't wanna go to the general hospital anymore coz of my bad experience when he had jaundice. So I asked for a referral letter to go to a private hospital.
When I got to the emergency at MMC (the hospital Zyon was born at), the paed told me that his fever is fine and didn't need to be admitted. His fever was caused by a viral infection at his throat due to the phlegm. So she gave me some meds and asked me to monitor his fever. Anything above 38 degrees, come back to the hospital. Thank God he didn't lah. He got better after a few days.
We went to Yong Peng to attend Joy's wedding. We decided to bring Zyon along with us to see if he will be fine traveling out of Melaka. He did pretty well on the way there. He slept the whole way there. During the wedding dinner, he did fussed a little coz he wanted milk (He was screaming for milk during this photo above was taken lol). Then he couldn't fall asleep coz the whole place was overstimulating. We took turns to bring him to a darker place to help him fall asleep. Unfortunately it wasn't successful lah but he didn't cry or scream during this time. Super good boy. He basically got too tired and slept all the way back too. Got back, didn't fussed and slept well till the next day. That night was the one of the rare nights that all of us didn't have to stay up with him till 1am lol.
Sorry, you can't be seen in the photo son. My focus here is both the jie jies. Let me post just one more that has your face ok son?
Hahahahahah~ Sorry this is not better than the one before
We started him on tummy time a little late coz can actually start on the first month
He did quite well but can't last till one minute lah. It's okay we can always build his stamina towards longer timing.
Here are some videos that I've taken of him doing tummy time...
Mum and I brought him out shopping for the first time 😀
I've been wanting to bring him out shopping since he was born but confinement period happened 😓 So on the second month I was determined to bring him out no matter what. So with mum's accompaniment, we brought him to the nearest mall.
I was worried that he would not like the stroller but he was fine with it. Didn't make too much noise when he's in it. We just had to make sure that the stroller doesn't stop lah. When it stops, he'll make a lot of noise lol.
We managed to shop around the department store, bought groceries and also ate lunch with him being super good. He did fuss at the end of the trip. But it was coz he wanted to take a nap d. Too much stimulation so he didn't sleep a wink during the whole trip. Must be very tired lah.
But overall it was a good attempt lah. I think he enjoyed it as well. We will definitely be bringing him out more often from now on.
Now it's time for me. How was my second month as a mother fair?
I celebrated my first mother's day 🎉🎉🎉
We ordered Domino's pizza and gathered round the coffee table to enjoy it. Zyon also joined us in the celebration. He only had his milk milk coz dude can't have any of the pizza lol. Never mind bae, next year you can 😁
Well that's all the updates about me as a mum. Again, not much updates lol. Let's hope next time I have more to share.
Alright so it's the end of this updates post. I think for the next post I won't be posting up on his updates coz I've been two updates consecutively. I bet it's getting boring for some of you guys out there. Let me just draft something else and post it up real soon.
As always, please check out my Dayre *here* for day-to-day live updates if you guys wanna see more of me. More photos of Zyon posted there as well.
I'll see you guys in the next post.
