Baby O is officially now Jie-jie O who loves her Di-di to bits! She has been such a little gem of a sister. She had her share of temper throwing and attention grabbing antics but generally, she has been such an understanding little girl. She would play on her own knowing that I have to tend to the baby and is ever ready to grab me a piece of muslin cloth or nappy when needed. Amazing coming from a two and a half year old.
I do feel sorry for Jie-jie O sometimes as she would often say 'Papa, can you play with me?' when he gets back from work (like right now!) as I have not been able to spend the time doing things with her like I used to the last two years! To begin with, I was super huge this pregnancy so even before Baby J's arrival, I had pretty much stopped most activities. I couldn't sit at the play area with her so she was left to play on her own most of the time. Cooking a meal felt like I was moving a whole house so she was left to our trusted and never failing babysitter, the television a lot too. Sigh... So I have tried to work around that and try to play and read together with Baby J now or do something with her while he naps since he has a more predictable routine now. On the other hand, I feel like I wish I can spend more time nurturing Baby J as he is growing up so fast!
Well, this is what life is now with two! Absolutely no time for myself washing the never ending pile of laundry and all, but at the same time enjoying double the smiles, double the hugs and double the love... ;-)
