MIA

MIA or missing in action.

That's where I've been the past year (or so?!). :(

LJ has been keeping me busy. He is now 1 year and a half (crazy!). He is fully mobile -- walking, running and becoming a little monkey -- climbing onto furniture and things.

I've missed blogging -- writing down my thoughts, reading other people's blogs (that are non parenting related).

Maybe it's the "me" time I crave as well. Because to be honest, the me time only happens when I'm at work or when LJ is in bed. It's the only time I can "turn off" as a Mom and not have to worry where LJ is or if he's safe and not getting into mischief.

Just writing this short entry felt --- nice, even productive! :)

Question of the day: What is your favorite "me time" past time? :)

The New Face of BabyGap...

LJ is a born model!

There's a casting call for the new face of BabyGap. On a lark, I entered LJ (now 7 mos!) and submitted this picture, one of our faves.

He's super cute in this picture. I entered him just for fun and see what happens.... What if he gets picked??!! :) It would be nice to get some free clothes from Gap and some $$ for LJ's education fund.

Question of the day: What is the strangest baby name you've heard? Would you rather have a typical name or a unique name??

Anxious!

Sigh. Only 5 days left of my maternity leave.

Where did the time go???

I maxed out my maternity leave at work which is 20 weeks. I was lucky that LJ came out on my first day of maternity leave so that I was able to spend all 20 weeks with him.

Still, it is not enough time with my baby. He is growing up so fast, he just turned 4 months , drooling all over himself and just learned to roll over from his back to his tummy.

Anyway, I'm starting work this Monday. I'm not really looking forward to it. I'm feeling anxious because I've been gone for awhile. I've been dreading the day since last month and now it's fast approaching.

We placed LJ in daycare part time since the month started to help us both transition. I was very sad/nervous on his 1st day at daycare. LJ, however, did fine and was all smiles when I picked him up later in the day. I think it was definitely harder for Mommy than for him.

One of the few things I can look forward to on Monday is I have new outfit and new haircut/higlights .... hee heee. It feels like the 1st day of school for me back from a long summer break where I need a new look.

The adult interaction will be good and I'm looking forward to seeing some of my work friends but not really looking forward to the actual work. SIGH. I emailed my boss reminding him to reactivate my IDs and he emailed back saying he's looking forward to my return.

I told one of my gf's that she'll need to cheer me up at lunch on my 1st day back.

SIGH. I will miss spending the day with LJ. Those 20 weeks only felt like 2 weeks. :(

Question of the day: What has made you anxious lately?

Hello!

Hello! My name is LJ and I am 2 months old. I now weigh about 10 lbs.

I have been keeping my Mom very busy these past couple of months. She nurses me every 3-4 hours around the clock. I pretty much keep her busy as if she is not feeding me, she is constantly changing my diaper or playing with me. She and my Dad read, sing and talk to me as well.

This month, I've learned to smile and laugh. Mom and Dad are tickled by this as they always make funny faces and sounds at me. They think they can fool me into smiling for them, but I will only smile/laugh only when I want to.

Compared to other labor stories, my Mom had a relatively "easy" time with me. She was only in labor for 4 hours before I made my debut. She was sooo happy when I came out, I saw her and Dad cry.

Mom has been staying home with me and will be for the next 2.5 months. Dad had to go back to work unfortunately 2 weeks after I was born. I think I am tiring my Mom as I see her yawning all the time. Probably because I keep her up at night. She hasn't slept much since I was born, only catching naps.

The past 2 months has been an exciting time for me and my Mom and Dad. I am cherishing every moment with them as these fly right by. I try to tell them how much I love them by coo-ing, I think they understand as they either coo back at me or make more funny sounds.

Most people say that I look like my Dad and I think my Mom feels left out. She does say that I have her ears, fair skin and possibly my lips. I must have good genes because I've been told that I am handsome and a cute baby. (Even cuter than J Lo's twins to be perfectly honest!)

I am writing this on behalf of my Mom who doesn't have much time to blog. She misses it alot and will be back when she has more time to write.

Question of the day: Who is the cutest celebrity baby?
