Olivia: 2 months old

I can't remember if my boys were the same at this age, but this baby loves being cradled and will protest when we put her down. 

During the day, she can nap a long time in my arms but will wake the moment she is placed on any beds. Once in a while, she may continue napping for another 10 min but will wake up crying, supposedly realizing she is no longer in the same place. The moment she is back in my arms, she returns to snoozing. 

Her feeds in the day are getting quicker; usually she seems to have enough after just 5 to 7 min of nursing. If I offer more, she threatens to throw up. Unfortunately, this is probably why she needs to be nursed every 2 to 2.5 hours. Only occasionally will she nurse longer and even take my offer of the second side. 

At the moment, her bedtimes and night wakings are still all over the place. On a good night, she goes to bed before 9pm and will wake once between then and 6am. Otherwise, she calls it a night between 10pm and 11pm and is up for two brief feeds between 2am and 8am. 

One of her favourite activities is face-time. She loves to be talked to and will smile and coo back throughout the entire 'conversations'. 

She likes Marcus, who is very good at calming her down with his voice and gentle touch. 

It is so much joy to take her out for 'sightseeing'. So far, I've brought her out on my own to run errands, grocery shopping, strolls around parks and have lunch dates with friends. She enjoys our outings and will nap in her pram when we are out and about.

It's so rewarding to see her growing and fattening up on mummy's milk. :>

She is so pretty! I miss having newborn babies. LOL! Err...I'm very curious to know her chinese name because of the blog post previously about you and your spouse struggling with the chinese name. But it is ok too if you do not sure whether you wish to reveal or not. :)

Karen, I am beginning to wonder if showing you Olivia more often will change your mind. Haha... I shall tempt Stanley too. *evil laugh*
