Today it’s just a quick photo-update of my three kids.
Baby Caleb is pretty much the same since my blog post about him last week.
I don’t know why, but he has been quite cranky the past week. Maybe it’s the weather? Maybe he’s unwell? I have no idea.
That’s one thing about parenthood… even on your third child, you can still be lost sometimes.
Caleb in the morning, before he’s waken up.
If you ever wondered why I have so many pictures of sleeping babies on this blog, there’s a simple explanation.
Sleeping babies don’t move, which gives me a lot of time to setup the lighting, compose the shot, and attempt shooting with the manual focus.
Having said that, I still manage to produce out-of-focus shots or shots with flare. It’s rather depressing and frustrating.
Another photo of baby Caleb sleeping.
He has grown taller, but he is still tiny. Both his feet put together are still smaller than a RM50 note.
Rachel is getting chattier. She is constantly learning and imitating everyone around her.
One day I’ll try to get a video of her pretending to talk on the phone. She can carry a five minute conversation, mostly imitating Poey Chin or my dad.
We finally got her to stop drinking from a bottle. Our method was simple, we just stopped buying new bottles for her. When her bottles wore out or became too grimy, that was it. No more bottles.
Now she takes milk from a cup and a straw.
I feel the birth of baby Caleb has motivated her to grow up a little. She always wants to be the big sister, but sometimes she can be over-enthusiastic so we’re still careful.
There are still moments of conflict between us. She is so stubborn and I’m so impatient, especially when she wants to do things at the wrong time. Not a good combination.
Okay maybe stubborn is not a good word. She’s very determined.
But she’s learning very quickly. Both good and bad, so are more careful what we say around her.
She’s really into Hi-Five now.
Daryl is still his jolly self.
He is so gentle with Caleb it’s amazing. Caleb is always happy to see Daryl so I think the two boys will get along really well.
He’s starting to pick up new words. Still baby talk, but his vocabulary is expanding. He’s starting to sing along to his favourite songs.
All the teeth at his upper jaw have developed, and the teeth from his lower jaw are already peeking out.
He’s at a hyperactive stage… walking all around the condo and touching everything so he tires everyone out.
I wish I could take better photos of him but he doesn’t stop moving.
That’s all for this update!
