Joel is 6 months old today! Time really flies.
He is really our bundle of joy...
I've been staying at home with him for the past months. Initially, I wasn't comfortable and felt insecure cos no stable income and I never really like the feeling of asking money from my husband.. However, God has been very very kind to me by blessing me with some "side incomes" that enough for myself and Joel.
Taking care of Joel by myself is really rewarding and full of excitements, especially witnessing his 'first-time'... =P I've also successfully get him into a routine. With this routine, I really have more time for my own. I learn one important thing, never let your baby decides his routine! It'll be a chaos.
Joel's routine (reference):
|10:00am||Wake up & feeding|
|11:30am||I'll go downstairs with Joel to buy my lunch|
|12:30pm||Feeding & nap time|
|3:00pm||Wake up & feeding |
- Play cards
- Watch baby's program
Some outdoor activities
*Usually at this hour, we'll be waiting for my husband to come back*
*My husband will drives us out for dinner*
|8:30pm||Wipe body and change to PJ|
|9:00pm||Feeding & Bed time|
Well, sometimes not that punctual but most of the time he'll follow this routine. :)
