Since I didn't have a confinement lady, I took care of her all by myself (no MIL or mum to help). - Turned her head from left to right when she's laid on her tummy (about 4th week). - Smiled for the first time. 2nd month - Could lift her head up while being carried, as well as while she's put lying on her stomach. - Stopped waking up for night feeds when she was 6 week old (aleluia!). - Kicked at her baby gym - Put her fist in her mouth to suck 3rd month - cooed - Sucked her thumb and upper lip (if we kept her thumb away from her) - held things when placed in her hands - clasped her hands
4th monthI went back to work (I took 3 months off). This same month, we moved to our new house in Shah Alam and she started having to be sent daily to King's Wife's place together with my maid. - turned from lying to her back to her front - used her hands to play with her baby gym 5th month
- laughed - crawled (tummy on the floor) - Passed item from one hand to another - With her tongue between her lips, made the sound PBBBBTTTT - Sucked on her toes - Smacked her lips - When we wanted to lift her up, she reached her hands out to us 6th month
- had her first taste of solid - sat unsupported - turned her wrist 7th month - sat unsupported - clapped her hands - waved bye bye - swam in a pool (with float of course)
8th monthThis was when I started her blog. - cut her first tooth (in fact, 4 came out just about the same time) - gave her first kiss, to a baby photo in a book - stood while being supported (by holding on to something) - cruised - rubbed her eyes when she's tired
- sat herself up - pulled herself to standing position by holding on to a piece of furniture -improved pincer grip 10th month
- spoke her first word - took her first step 11th month
- climbed down furniture on her own - stood unsupported 12th month
Weight : 7.79Kg (before she got her food poisoning, quite likely lighter now) Height : 75cm - cut 2 more teeth, and another one is peeking out from the gums - spoke her first 3-syllable word - said her name when she's asked "What is your name?"
She was not as energetic as her normal self, but she still got pretty excited seeing all the people making their own lunch/pohpiah. I gave her a piece of skin and some vege, so that she can join in the fun. She however, didn't have the appetite to eat anything, she just tore the food up into pieces, and made a mess at the table like her usual self.
Samantha was happily entertaining her while Zara threw up, all over Samantha's lap. Poor Sam's skirt was drenched in puke. Zara was not disturbed by any of it, and continued playing once we cleaned her, and removed her pinafore.
When it was time to cut the cake, she couldn't relate to the cake and the candle thing, but she was very excited when the Happy Birthday song was sung. I got her a big fat carrot cake from Marmalade Cafe, thinking that this was something she can eat since it's quite a 'nutritious' cake. However, again, Zara didn't want to have any when I offered it to her and was showing sign that she was tired and needed a nap. While she slept, I had more pohpiahs (probably 6 all in) and a big fat slice of cake. My excuse is I do need the energy to pacify a whinny kid. When Zara woke up from her sleep, she again had diarrhea, this time her stool was totally watery. We were very very concerned. We had to almost shoo all our other guests home (by this time it was only my sis, my aunt and my in-laws around), to bring Zara to see a pediatrician. Dr Chye, who operates in Subang, told us that Zara probably had food poisoning, but since her diarrhea and vomiting is not THAT frequent, we will just have to let her fight it herself. She was given some syrup to help with her colic pain, and then some rehydrating salt. Zara refused to sit in her car seat after we left the Dr's. She had big drops of tears rolling down, reaching her hands out for me. I gave in, and just a few moments after she was out of the car seat, Zara puke again, this time all over me; and then again during dinner after just a few mouth full of porridge.
However worrying it may all seem to me; she behaved normally after that, it didn't seem to bother her if she had done a watery poo, or puke. It's probably a good sign that it was not causing much discomfort to her (my consolation). Not a very good birthday celebration for her, and I smelled of puke at the end of the day.
Mummy just hope she gets well soon.

Visit to Tai-Kong's (maternal great grand father)- King's wife and family went to Kajang to visit our maternal grand father, Zara and I tagged along. She was very afraid of her Ku-Kong (maternal grand uncle), but after he agreed to bring her walking, her fear miraculously disappeared. Sleep over in King's Wife's place - Sleeping with her favourite cousin, Samantha che-che
Fun in the park - Her cousins brought her to the park, and here she is on a swing with Alicia che-che (she looked bored because she's actually very sleepy).
Visit to Ikea - She sure had a lot of fun playing with some of the little houses set up all around Ikea for little people. Even happier if there were other children whom she could play with.
Drawing - We bought some crayons and a book of art block, and let her have fun 'drawing'. This was her first attempt, she was just making dots and drawing lines.
Exploring - She was fascinated by the pebbles we had in our court yard as well as our shell collections. She kept pulling Daddy back to the courtyard to play with the things there.
So it was a fun filled holiday for her, and a tiring one for me....
