First post in 2014! And yes, this space is still alive. I write less now because simply, my hands are full, being a mum 24/7 to Zachary. Speaking of little one, he is just over 4 months old and I am ever so in love with him. I even googled about mum's love for her son to know if it is possible or common to be so in love with a little being who exhaust you to the max day in day out. Anyway, lil one is currently snoring away beside me, and yes, he snores! He must have got it for me because Oli doesn't snore. We are back home in Malaysia since December 18 although Oli flew back last week because he has classes to teach and he missed two weeks of classes already. We will only be flying back on Feb 4 so that is 3 weeks without Oli. So far, we're doing fine without Oli although we missed him a lot. That is given. I am not sure if Zachary realizes that his dad is not around. We do skype every night so at least Zachary has daily face time with his pop. I am reminded of those times when Oli and I were still in a long distance relationship. Separated for months only to see each other two weeks or at most a month during his summer break or Christmas. It's been nice spending some time with the family and seeing Zachary bonds with both side of our family. And I've been enjoying some good food that i missed while I was in Germany and at the same time, hitting the home gym to compensate all the eating!
Oh, on another note, Zachary just hit another milestone. Over last weekend, he learnt to roll from his back to his tummy and ever since then, he has been doing it every day, even in his sleep. You know what, I wished I could have written a monthly update on how he is doing, his development and milestone. A lot of people told me he looks bigger and older than his age. Instead of 4 month, he looks like a 6 month old. It must be the hair. :) In terms of milestones, he has been achieving his milestone one month ahead of what was the normal average month based on Babycenter.com. And yes, I am that proud mum who might bragged a bit of her kid and I am aware of it and I shall stop now. :). In general, Zachary is quite a smily and chatty lil one. He loves it when we recite the ABC to him. He loves to listen to music and his favorite songs are Amazing Grace and Jesus Loves Me. He is drawn to people talking and especially when Oli and I talking. Like when we talk, I caught him several times just staring at us with a slight of wonder on his face, a tip of smile on his lips, listening to our conversation with interest. That boy caught my heart.
Anyway, he looks like he is about to wake up. Or not. I am just gonna lay down beside him, smell his hair, listen to him breathing and just savor the moment because he is growing up way too fast.
