My Pocketful of Sunshine, ...
There's something magical with those eyes! Yes! I knew it!! And that smile too! I can't take my eyes of you! Literally!! I love you, Lil man! And time flies too fast! Our bundle of joy is 3,5 months old already, weighing 7.83kg and 64cm tall ... round it up to 8kg by now I guess! #susumamimengandungsopkambingkfccharkwayteowdannasipadang HOHOHO :D
Like most of the babies in his age, Gideon starts to 'recognize' familiar faces and his surroundings. He smiles back at us when we talk and smile to him. My favorite moment is when I greet him in the morning, he'll look at you and give that sweet smile!!! *langsung meleleh mamake* He displays excitement and start making sounds, especially when Daddy is around, ... Both of them will have this 'conversation' that only God knows what it supposed to mean. I try to mimic his baby language several times, end up he starred at me like what-are-you-trying-to-do-mommy, .. but when Daddy do the same thing he replies back to him! Oh well, let Daddy do his part making that funny sound while Mommy recording both of you ..
He also starts exploring his hands and yes gobble them up too!! Not to forget saying hello to the drooling stage!! Hello there, saliva!!! But even the saliva smells good ... for me! HAHAHA .. He enjoys splish splashing in his bath tub during bath time!! In other word, Mommy get wet too!
In his fine motor skills development, he starts to grasp the rattle in his hand and yes again bringing it to his mouth!! Nak, baru makan tangan sama jilat - jilat maenan aja udah 8kg, gimana ntar udah makan tempe?! HOHOHO .. His favorite thing is the Toggies Label Blanket from Aunty Manda!! On top of that he start to grasp or you can say pull mommy's hair and daddy's shirt too. Those mantou hands!! Argh!!! Gemesh!!! Gemesh!!!
One thing about him, when we place him on his stomach on the bed for tummy time, he'll try to lift his head together with those upset sound! Grumbling mode on!! He doesn't like it!! Then I tried to put him on my body and this bub lifted his head happily ... Umh, wondering why!! Mommy's belly is so fluffy, isn't it?! Anyway, he's practicing to lift up his head since he's still bobbing around .. Dasar si gembil!!! Keberatan pipi ya, nak!
Gide started to sleep through out the night when he was 2.5 moths! Hooray!!! *sewa rombongan tanidor*. He still occasionally wake up here and there around 4ish and making that funny uh-ah sound telling Mommy that he is hungry and sleepy Mommy is more than happy to feed him, but rather than that this chubby cheeks will sleep soundly in his bed. Good job, Gideon!!! I'm one proud and blessed momma'!! Yeah!!!
Umh, let's see what else this little human has done for the past 3 months .. Oh! We introduced pacifier to him and he really know how to take it out if he doesn't want it or spit it out from his mouth .. another yeah yeah yeah for you baby!!! Daddy and Mommy like to read story book to him and his reaction is priceless .. Macam ngerti aja ya, nak!!!.. Good habit can start as early as this age right?! We also let him to taste orange and grapes! Geragas betul anaknya pas ditempelin doank di mulut HAHAHA .. Wait until you try KFC, son!!! That time will come!! HOHOHO
But still ... baby being baby, he can be very demanding! And want all the attention on him. There are times when he wants to be carried all the way or he wants us to 'talk' and 'play' with him all the time .. And did I tell you that his poo smells like &^%$#@##$$!!! HAHAHAHA ..
3.5 months and I'm thanking God for the sweet smile that greets me every morning, for the cheeky smile when we play the 'boo game'!! for the crankiness when he's sleepy and hungry. for all those smelly sh*t indicating that he has good digestive system. for keeping me busy packing up his newborn outfits showing that he is growing. for that double chin indicating that he's well fed! for everything!!! I'm so looking forward what this lil man can do in the future .. I love you, Gideon!!! XOXO zillion times for you!!!
All pictures were taken by Bern Yeremia from Refocus Photography! The perks of having photographer friend!! Gide was about taking his bath when uncle Bern came to our house, .. and everybody was "Ini pasti bukan kamu yang fotoin kan, Gil!!" ... HAHAHA beda tangan beda hasil ya bok!!
