Gosh, it has been a while since my last update. There are too many things to do and I weren’t prepared for that many unplanned incidents. I feel like my life has been fully taken up by Baby Belle. Hey, I am not complaining. Just stating a fact. Being a Mommy, all I ever wanted was to rush home first thing first after work. She is changing everyday so every stage is important to me. My baby has finally turns 4 months old and trust me, the progress of getting her to this stage is horrendous. No hurry, we will get there eventually. Let’s recall back one by one.
Celebrating her 4th months ceremony. For Chinese traditions, 4th month is the best time to so-called “keeping her saliva”. Babies drool a lot. So this is the time when elderly people would prepare steam chicken drumstick for the baby to taste. The trademark is to tie a ring of biscuits around the baby’s neck and make sure the baby taste every pieces of cookies. It was said that once babies tasted something apart from milk, they wouldn’t drool over food. Nobody care much about this tradition until the recent years. It started getting popular once more so parents like me would spent hundreds of dollars to purchase customised biscuits for Baby Belle. Obviously, the theme will be “Beauty and the Beast” in conjunction to her name. Baby Belle is bound to be a food lover. Just imagine her looking longingly at our food with her mouth twisting and saliva drooling all over. Hang on my child. Just a few more months to go before I start feeding you with solids alright?
