noisy saturday~~

*sigh* My blissful days are over..That will teach me to secretly gloat when other moms lament to me that their babies hardly sleep in the day..Since abt 3 days back, Aidan has started to nap lesser in the daytime and to make things worse, he has also gotten noiser too. No longer those soft babyish cries...they are now replaced by loud moans, grunts and sobs. And putting him to sleep at night has gotten tougher too. Previously, it was so easy..Usually, after his last feed, he'll be so mabok and we'll just plonk him on the bed , leave him alone, and he'll sleep within the next minute or two..Now, instead of looking sleepy after his last feed, he'll be so bright and cheery..as if asking us to play with him..and when we put him in to bed and make our way out, his smile will turn into a frown and start moaning the minute he sees us creeping away.. For some of the nights, I'd to breastfeed him till he becomes really groggy then I can finally make him sleep in his cot..Hubby is ever so thankful that I'm still breastfeeding or else he may end up with sleepless nights too. Guess I should also start doing somethin else like reading to him before sleeptime.. which is something I've been neglecting to do lately ..

My li' drummer boy :)
(oh yeah Clare..hubby said it wasn't a good idea to have a percussion set in the house and I sorta agree with him now *earache*..too late tho hehe )


I think my golf stokes have improved..even my golf instructor praised me a fair bit today :D....I guess this game really needs a lot of practising in order for one to get a hang of [we've been going to the driving range every Wednesday evening to practice]...At least the ball now flies up beautifully when I hit it and there are no longer any embarrassing swish sounds due to me completely miss the ball while attempting to drive it...(I do hit the ground once in a while though)..I think the tough part was letting the left hand 'take over'..but once u allow it to and will ur right hand not to be forceful at all, everything seems easier.

Went to watch T3 after golf...Some parent had brought their child young (abt 3/4 years of age I think) to the movie and throughout the show, he was making so much noise..repeating some of the dialogue (especially Arnie's) at times and making loud oooh and ahhs..(he was the lone ooher) and squealing once in a while ..His parents just let him continue making all that din through out the show..Sorta marred my movie viewing experience altho the movie sucked imo so he simply just made it worse. I dunno....I mean I have a child so I shouldn't be so critical of parents wanting to bring their kids to the movies but I wonder if they realise that they are spoiling the show for others...And don't tell me that those irritated tsk and looks of displeasure from pple around them don't bother them at all? It's really no difference to that of a handphone going off in the theatre then..

I dunno..I'm sure I will at least leave the theatre if that happens..and probably just get the dvd it's on sale if it's a show I was dying to watch...

Aidan zzs abt 10 now..(we put him to bed abt 9+)..I'm an insomniac so I usually get to bed by abt 2/3am so most of the time, I'll be on the computer or watching tv before that..
Jul. 20th, 2003 08:46 am (UTC)
hahha.. you are the same with me .. i slept very late.. last time worst sometimes at 4/5 am :( hehhe we both enjoyed sleeping late. lucky my hubby is self employed so not too bad lah..

Hee...dun worry about Aidan. Think it's just a growing phase...he will outgrow that and go back to his normal routine!
Jul. 20th, 2003 08:43 am (UTC)
I really really really hope so..wait, which are u referrin to? The less nap time or his sleep pattern? Is it common for kids to deviate from their normal routine and then return to it?
Jul. 20th, 2003 09:02 am (UTC)
I was referring to both. In some cases...yes. My ds used to know (in his subconsious mind) when it is a Saturday or Sunday and chose not to sleep early/take naps on these 2 days. You may also wish to note his food and your food intake (yours becos you're still breastfeeding) and see if there is any changes which may be affecting him.

Agree with Tina, Aidan will grow out of this phase. However, you may want to put in place some schedule so that he can get used to the timings. For example, 9pm for last formulae feed, 11pm for last BF then water throughout the nite. Don't worry about nutrition or hunger as long as he has his solids in the day.

I've heard complaints from my colleagues about kids being brought to the big screens and how irritating it can be. Though I have never brought my children at that age to watch the movies, the only thing I could think of is lack of family support. Prob they don't have anyone to help look after the kid while they wanna watch. But you are right, if they really wanna watch it, it could wait till the DVD is out or something. Guess some do not prioritise courtesy to others above their wants *sigh*

Actually, I'd been following a schedule already..the thing is, he started to deviate from it just few days ago..that's y headache..but usually, after lettin him moan/groan/dry swim on the cot for a while (let him get tired), I'll bfeed him and he'll sleep outta exhaustion.Thankfully, he doesnt wake up at all in the middle of the night so we are okay for that..hopefully, he'll stay that way when he starts teethin..I guess u guys will know better since your kids are bigger already..and u had two!
Actually, I dont see anythin wrong with bringing kids to the theatre..not everyone would be able to have someone look after their children everytime..but it's more that should their kid start making noise..I feel they should at least leave the theatre to calm the kid down instead lettin him/her do as they please..

Agree with you about the percussion. We have a drum, xylophone and piano at home...thankfully Alison does not play them too often. The Barney toy is more annoying.

I enjoyed T3 and yes, there was a father sitting next to K with his 5-6 year old daughter who didn't understand what was going on and fell asleep on her daddy's shoulder about halfway through the show.
Jul. 20th, 2003 08:41 am (UTC)
heh..I think sooner or later, i will succumb to the Barney lure...had wanted to buy some VCDs already but thought i'll buy it later..
Well, at least for u, the kid slept tru the show so it aint tt bad..the kid in the theatre i was in was noisy throughout the show ..gah!
T3's plot aint bad..but I thought the actors, mainly the guy who played John Connors and Claire Danes were flat and uninteresting..Even the female terminator 'acted' better than both of them...Actually, I felt that the movie was more of a comedy than an action movie :P..

Down with Barney! Down with Barney!

I thought T3 was funny too! In an Arnie-humour way. Did you notice how buff he is?! And he's 60+ years old! Amazing.

are those deep or light color marks above the....the.....cactus (?) are the marks of aidan's saliva?
Jul. 20th, 2003 08:41 am (UTC)
yeah..he salivates ALOT! That's why most of the time, we have a towel or bib ard his neck (tho i do take them out when i take pics)
Jul. 20th, 2003 06:33 am (UTC)
Don't worry. Think of it as a learning process for Aidan. Anyway, I only let Ryan play with the noisy toys at certain times of the day and they go back into hidding after that.
Jul. 20th, 2003 08:37 am (UTC)
Yeah..I do that too but especially now when Aidan's awake alot during the day, I sorta run outta stuff to occupy his time with so in the end, I'll just drag out all his toys for him to play with..Am thinking whether I should go buy more toys for him..
