Yassy’s note:Liam’s first year: Day 155- Day158

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…

Day 155..

Just today,I have found the great breastfeeding track sheet from the bump website.You may want to check it out to keep track of your baby’s feeding.

He looves mama’s milk and when he senses it is time to burp,he gets really mad;his face flashes like crab, and cry out loud to message across. When he knows he is now being able to continue drinking mama’s milk,he stop and becomes so focused for the feeding. Sometimes,he talks to me while drinking.I found it interesting.

Day 156..

I think Liam keep me being creative each day because sometime, same thing works to make him smiles but sometimes,he think it not so funny and I need to create the funnier things to do for him.

That being said, so far, diaper change song (simply I use his sound of u-u-u and make the note and sing for him),and piano keyboard play on him (do-re-mi-fa-so-ra-ti-do from head to toe or vice versa and tickle when do) work all the time though.

The sound I used to make like motor boat was such a hit before but these days,it is hit or miss.

Today’s new thing that made him smile so big was that,I hold him cradle style and stepping forward a little fast with sound “teko-teko-teko (it is the sound in Japanese to describe walking sound)” about a couple of steps and then itty bitty jump forward by saying “po” and he made such a big smile.

I find that taking care of little one sometimes can make you exercise without noticing by yourself,lol. I maybe got more muscle in arms and legs,lol.

Day 158..

Liam and I have been practicing roll over. When his hands gets stuck,in the past, he could not figure it out what he needed to do to be able to bring his hands before him.

Now, he is slowly but starting to understand and figuring it out by himself what he needs to do to bring his stuck arms before him.

I love watching how he grows..

Stay tuned for more Liam story.
