Weighing in at 4.65kg, Noah is at 50th percentile on the growth chart although he looks much bigger than that – all because he has a huge head, just like his father.
This week has been much better in terms of tranquility for the family. At least no one is dying in hospital!
It is also the first week I can say I feel truly adjusted to the sleep deprivation.
In true Chinese style, we celebrated Noah’s full month milestone with a lobster dinner at Kam Fook in Chatswood. Mummy is so proud of you, little Noah and Seth for being such a proud brother! To many more years of celebrations with my boys.
My weight has dropped and although still 6-7kgs away from my pre-pregnancy weight, I am feeling good about myself and how I look. My belly is no longer looking like I’m carrying a 6 month baby and my abdominal gap seems to be only 2 fingers wide. This is even smaller than pre-pregnancy, as far as I can remember! Last time, I’m pretty sure that even with the help of a personal trainer, I was left with a permanent 3 finger gap.
Although breaking confinement rules of not staying indoors for a full month, having eaten the right foods, blow drying my hair after washing it (and frankly, just washing it less) has made a huge difference, I feel. So, for those who doubt the tradition, I say, “Just do it. There is no harm done!”
I can’t wait to resume my yoga practise. Another week and a half to go…. Until then, Noah, please sleep through!
