Yassy’s note: Liam’s first year: Day 72 – Day 78

In the previous entry titled “Yassy’s note: Liam in NICU;day 8- day 14“, I wrote Liam came to our family about 3 weeks early (36 weeks and 2 days) and he has spent next 3 weeks in NICU.

He was tiny little baby; 18″ tall, weighing 5 lb 6 oz…

At day 72, he was 9 lb 6 oz boy.. Almost doubled in size.He was growing nicely.

At about day 72 or so, we had issue with him crying a lot and sometimes nothing worked.It was one of those busy mom days with wits end.

After trying swing and that did not work, I was not sure what would be better to try next. Being a first mom and my own mother is living 14 hours flight away,it was tough moment.

However,looking back, those hardship made myself grow inside and outside.

I once thought of letting Liam sleep inside the swing if swing made him sleepy and he fell asleep but,we were not supposed to do so as par our therapist’s advice for to collect the torticollis with misshapen head (flat head).

Day 73..

I was feeling super tired.. thinking about taking a nap..just could not stop yawning.

I breastfed Liam morning again. He did fine.

When breast milk in the bottle is low in supply,I had to rely on formula which seemed to make him gassy and I really hated to give it to him.

At day 72, as par pediatrician & mother in law suggestion,we gave him gas drop right before meal before his bed time, but not sure if it did any better than a night before.

Especially because I gave Liam tummy massage ,which encourage gas goes to right direction to pass, every milk time so, I expected him to fart after that.

Around the same time I was having issue with his crying, gassy tummy issue on and off, I also was suffering with blocked milk duct.

Therefore, I tried epsom salt solution to see if it helps any quite a lot.

With previous episode, epsom salt with warm compress worked good.

Those days, with Liam’s hospital visits,I had days now and then where I could not pump every 2-3 hours as I should have done, and on and off,I had block duct issue and it was painful.

<Epsom salt solution for blocked ducts>

Epsom salt water solution; 2 tsp Epsom salt in 1 cup warm water.

Epsom-salt soaking before breastfeeding helped to open the milk duct opening and also aids in healing.

What I did was to put the epsom salt in the bowl and then, add small amount of really hot water to dissolve.

Then add warm water to cool it down.

I wet the washcloth in the solution and loosely squeeze out the solution and lean back a bit and put the cloth over my breast for 15 minutes or so.

I did it before nursing, before pumping

This epsom salt solution really worked good for my issue.

Day 77

Liam Day 77, in Giraffe gown..

On day 77, Liam killed 2 crib sheets, 2 clothes, 1 diaper we were going to slip it under him to change… It was right after I just did laundry for his yesterday and already got more to wash.

This was the 3rd clothe in one day….

Little one really went through lots of clothes a day.

This giraffe clothe was a gown. It was rather big for him even though it was newborn size. But big one looked cute on him though.

More Liam’s story continue.

Stay tuned.

Three times Agility champion Dizzy and Natasha Wise

Some years ago, I got Palette “weave pole” for her birthday so that we can have fun at home. It is one of the obstacle in the sports called “Agility”.

 Agility is a canine sports that dogs goes through all kinds of obstacles with direction of handlers such as tunnels, A shaped obstacle called “A frame”, dog walk,weave pole, jumping bars,teeter etc..and compete the time to finish the course, and how precisely completed the each obstacles.

 It is very exciting to watch team work of one handler and one dog and also exciting to see performance of the dog going through the obstacles.

 According to Wikipedia website, the dog sports “Agility” was born in England 1970’s and first agility  performance documented is at “Cruft Dog Show” in 1978 and agility was performed to entertain the crowd between the classes.

 You can read more on history of dog agility at wikipedia website here .

 I think Agility is great sports for both human and dogs.

 For dogs, they can have outlet for pent up energy plus it is fun for them. Most of all, this canine sports has running,climbing,jumping etc so, they can have physical exercise and mental exercise both through fun sports.

 For us,human, it is fun playing Agility sports with dogs and we can make our bond stronger through the sports and, since this sports seem to involve some level of handling/training skill to teach what they are suppose to do with the obstacles,what obstacles to clear next etc, it will be good also to re-enforce the obedience skills.

 You can see list of obstacles and description at wikipedia website here .

 I am still a beginner knowledge level, and not familiar with detailed rules,levels and all that.

Palette loved weave pole and she weave through with tongue hanging out looking up to me and it is fun. She cannot weave through as fast as dogs in competition can but that is ok. We are playing it for fun.

 Just recently, I came across the Agility competition pair from UK:Border Collie “Dizzy” and Natasha Wise.

I learned they have become the very first pair to become three times world champions (prestigious FCI World Agility Championship) in dog agility. 

According to watfordobserver website Natasha was involved in agility field since she was 7.

You can read more on her at watfordobserver website here, and here at crusfts website.

I searched for the pair’s video and, I watched their performance. They were great.

Dizzy and Natasha Wise

Look at Dizzy how fast he goes especially weave pole.

Amazing…

Italian cooking: Green peas risotto

I love risotto and, I make them quite bit of variety.

Back in Japan, porridge (okayu) is probably most close to risotto dish although porridge tend to be less fattier because we add in probably just egg and soy sauce with pinch of salt (sometimes, just salted strip of kombu seaweed ) and tend to be very simple and very lean.

Porridge there is treated like “Chicken noodle soup” in USA and often times, person who got sick or who has digestive issue tend to eat it to heal.

Of course, it can be cooked different way to enjoy regular meal time.

If you have not made risotto,try making one. It is one pot dish and, they are 30 minutes meal and great for those who has pressed time and would like to spend less time cooking.

Plus,you can put whatever in the fridge/freezer using the same base, and you can be creative and make your own risotto and have fun with it.

This green peas risotto is quite easy and, I think even if person in the question is not a fan of green peas, they might enjoy it although they may not want to see a whole green peas on top as garnish. Still, you can serve it without garnish peas and just let them enjoy chesey taste of risotto;-)

I feel people who say they do not like green peas is probably from mushy texture from overcooked green peas.

You can prevent the peas from being over cooked by adding them in at the last 3-5 minutes of cooking and you get nice bright colored peas with non mushy, sweet bursting texture and they might actually enjoy them.

I eat green peas but I hate mushy green peas too.

If you had leftover risotto, add mozzarella cheese to the leftover risotto,make a meat ball size ball,and dip it in flour, then dip it in lightly beaten egg, then, coat the ball with panko bread crumbs then fry them.

You can have it with good marinara sauce and it is tasty

** When you make risotto, one thing to keep in mind is that you must keep stiring and add liquid 1C or so at a time and wait till liquid is absorbed and then another 1 cup of liquid is added.

Judo in Japan

Judo , literally translated from Chinese character to English it means meaning “gentle way”) is Japanese martial art/sport.

It is also one of summer Olympic game sports. Judo became Olympic sport in 1964 at Tokyo Olympic.

Judo was developed as samurai art of self defense in Edo period; 1600-1868.

Using Judo, one can defend oneself from attack,catch the opponent and defeat him without the use of weapons.

In the early Meiji period (1868-1912), Kano Jigoro not only established the Judo as sport but also founded Kodokan Judo,which aim for both physical, mental strength/discipline.

Judo uniform..

Kano Jigoro set up a system of ranks (dan) and class (kyu) as encouragement for his disciple and, the system still is used many years later.

Ranks is shown by belt color

Red: higher than 9th rank (dan)

Red and white stripe: 6-8th rank (dan)

Black: 1st-5th rank (dan)

Brown: 1st-3rd class (kyu)

White: 4th-5th class (kyu)

Match…

There are two categories:open weight and weight categories (7 categories)

A match is fought within 9.1 m x 9.1 m area.

Length of the match is anywhere from 3 minutes to 20 minutes.

The player who defeated the opponent by nage waza (throwing) so that he/she lands facing upward from the mat: or Katame waza ; (grappling) submission, and hold him/her more than 30 seconds ,win by ippon.

Judo technic..

Judo does not involve kicking, punching, or striking techniques of any kind.
Judo does not involve the application of pressure against the joints to throw an opponent.

Judo involves no equipment or weapons of any sort.

Instead, judo simply involves two players by gripping the judo uniform or judogi Eri (collar), use the forces of balance, power, and movement to attempt to subdue each other.

*** Throwing technique (nage waza)

Often times, this technique is used when opponent is off balanced to the front or back.

There are ..

Senage; shoulder throw

Osoto gari; Major outer cut

Hiza guruma: knee wheel

** Grappling technique (Katame waza)

This is the technique to make opponent submit by controlling his movements

Kami shihou gatame; Upper four corner hold

Kesa gatame: Diagonal hold

One of famous female Judo Olympic medalists is Ryoko Tamura (currently Ryoko Tani).

She is petit lady: 4.8 feet height , 106lb weight,but she won many medals at the Olympics in the past (she is now retired and working in democratic party.Quite a career change.)

Ryoko started Judo when she was 2nd grader,and at the age of 15, she entered in to Fukuoka International female competition for Judo and she won championship (youngest among the contestants).

She was skilled in speed and great sharp performance/technique.

Below is at Athens Olympic 2004, where she won Gold medal.Look how fast she goes..

Ryoko Tani wins gold medal..
