Baby Amelie. Everytime I scoop her into my arms she melts my heart into a puddle with her milky baby smells and cute chubby cheeks. She is one contented baby, rarely fusses but is quite a stickler for routines. Throughout the day she gets her milk in between regular 3 or 4 hour long naps, then she stays awake for a stretch in the evening from 6 to 9pm. After her night bath the cycle of milk/sleep starts again.
Last night she stayed asleep longer for about 5 hours before she woke again. I am hoping she will continue to be an easy baby and soon sleep through the night just like how her big brother did. It will be a big win for Mommy because I am due to start work full-time in November!
Being a stay at home mom (SAHM) for the past 10 months has been really great. It granted me time to coordinate renovations, moving in to our new home, spend much needed quality time with family, to catch up on my masters program and of course, to take it easy whilst being pregnant! Now it’s time for a reality check… because there is more to life that I want to achieve. I hope that with this new position at a non-profit organisation working with the elderly, I will be able to truly make a difference in bettering the lives of others. This is a totally different level of job satisfaction that I can’t wait to realise!
