Solo out to Waterway Point with baby girl! πŸ˜‡

Yay it's Friday!! Looking forward to the weekend cos hubby and I will be bringing baby girl out. Many people say this phase is the "easy-to-take-care" stage because they haven't started talking nor walking. πŸ˜‚

Ok shall cherish whatever time I have with baby before I go back to work.

Not looking forward to going back. 😭😭😭 AT ALL.

Wasn't actually looking forward to today cos hubs will be home late, which means it will be me + baby whole day and night. πŸ₯Ί Not that I don't like my baby ah but it's quite lonely at times.

So I've decided to make it into a happy TGIF by going out with baby girl!

Maternity leave gonna end soon. Must use all opportunities to go out! 🀩

"Mama where are you bringing me to??"

My love-hate relationship with the stroller.

Waiting for the lift is a pain!! How many times did I glance at the escalator in the opposite direction thinking - if only I'm strong enough to carry my baby in one hand and the stroller in another...

No no, better not take the risk. πŸ˜“

I used to think that we don't need the stroller.

One of out couple friend didn't buy a stroller and they said it wasn't necessary cos they always baby-wear. And by the time baby learns to walk, he can walk - so no need for stroller!

Hubby and I thought "yep good point!"

So we didn't bother looking at strollers.

Until my friend handed me a used one.

Wow it's quite life-changing, especially for me I think?

Cos I'm not physically as strong as the hubs.

So to baby-wear her + carry a backpack = quite tiring for me. Tried doing that a few times and I figured, a stroller works better for me!

No right or wrong, just what works for who!

Like I can sit properly and enjoy my lunch with a view.

Baby girl in the background chut chut chut her hands already - signalling "mama faster eat then feed me!!"


Pitstop at nursing room!

Love that it's so spacious + has hot water dispenser + a bench for me to sit and feed.

This girl's too distracted to drink her milk. πŸ˜•

Kept looking around everywhere. But when I put her back into the stroller, she starts sucking her fist, drooling and whining. So here we are at the nursing room hoping it's quieter.

But guess what?

This girl's distracted by all the paintings on the wall. 🀦🏻‍♀️

She is πŸ’―% like her daddy!!

Finally got to try this!!

The chrysanthemum pearls are really good! I'm not a fan of pearls but I actually like this. πŸ˜‹ But idk what's nice to go with it so I just ordered milk tea which was meh. πŸ˜•

Wah one uncle came and sat down beside me with his 2 granddaughters because his granddaughters love babies!!

They were going "baby! baby!" and pointing to Charlotte. 😬 So cute! Reminds me of baby Tilly!

And we started chatting about babies + kids + family. Lol.

Omg I feel like a housewife!?! πŸ™ƒ

Some baby fell asleep! Woohoo!

Time to go walk walk. πŸ›οΈ

Hahaha walked into Daiso and they have annoying loud music playing so baby girl woke up. 😟 Which means... She didn't get much nap time today. Hope she's not over-stimulated.

Ended up not buying anything for myself 🀷🏻‍♀️ but got something for my daughter.

Bought size 80 rompers even though she's wearing size 60 now cos... Sale!! So cheap only $7.90!

Sushi and strawberries for dinner! πŸ˜‹

Baby girl was screaming her lungs out just now and I caught sight of something whitish at her lower gums.

Is it teething gums!?

My BIL's wife said that she will probably start teething early because she saw that baby girl's gums were uneven during CNY.

I've been trying to sneak a peek but this girl never lets me.

I only saw some whitish part today!


Boss contacted me a few days ago, asking for my return date to the office. Sigh.

She also revealed that 2 of my team mates need to go on medical leave in March. No wonder she was concerned!

I then realized that one of my team mates had a sudden depression "attack" in the office one day and had to be subdued and sent to the hospital by SCDF. πŸ™

Another team mate was diagnosed with cervical cancer and need to undergo surgery. 😟

No doubt I feel sad for them and sincerely hope they will recover soon. But I'm also selfishly thinking about how overwhelmed I would be when I return back to the office after maternity leave ends?




Hubby asked me to try for a month and see how it goes first. Don't jump to conclusions when I haven't try it yet.

Okay then. 🀷🏻‍♀️

Hub's back yay! πŸŽ‰

Omg I think she's over-stimulated. 😦

11:50pm now and she doesn't wanna sleep nor drink milk. Just eyes wide open wanting to play and chut chut chut her hands. 🀨 Her usual bedtime is 10:30pm aiyo.

Hubs still need to rush his reports so... Yep it's up to me to settle her for the night.

Pls pls pls baby girl be good and sleep ya.

Day 46

arohammer @noiahnoi haha I don't keep the stroller sis! Charlotte can get cranky in the baby carrier and when she does I got no place to put her. πŸ˜† so stroller is slightly better for me!

@makeawishwithme yes do try once! I'm now thinking of things to do cos ML is ending liao. must make full use of it. πŸ˜…
