2 months later....

Can you believe the little tot is nearly 2months old? Time sure flies when you're nursing and changing nappies all day long! He is just starting to sleep through the night (7-8 hrs) but that also means he DOESN'T nap in the day which equates zero time to fiddle with beads. The in-laws are visiting from England which is wonderful cos they have sooo much experience with kids and I feel much more confident now with Nathan after picking up tips from them.

I've learnt some things in the past 2 months which tells you that your life is never gonna be the same:

1) Getting peed and pooed on is now a daily routine. Not funny.
2) You learn to eat/ shower/ use the loo at superman speed.
3) Having the baby sleep through the night is good for daddy but mommy still has to wake at 4am to pump her rock hard engorged mammaries.
4) You start planning shopping trips and nice meals around places with nursing room facilities.
5) Goodbye small clutches. Hello huge diaper bags!
6) Gone are the days of romantic vacations for two. You'll be lucky to even be able to have a few hours off without having to worry about the kiddo!

These are all but trivial stuff of cos :)
Here are some pictures on how Nate's been growing!

Haha! I would have to agree with #2, 4, 5, and 6! ;) Except now #4- some place with high chairs and isn't too crowded!

I remember the times Elisha would just sleep on my chest like that. No more! Now he'll climb down and run off to play. heh.

It was great seeing you on Sat!
