A peaceful night

Today, MIL brought home cooked yam rice over for lunch cos she cooked a pot. She came over at 11+am and stayed till almost 1pm cos it was raining. When she was about to leave, RaeAnne said 'I want to follow Nai Nai.' Maybe it's because they have been here quite often (they started visiting more often since last week when they found out that their precious grandaughter had been slapped :P), maybe it's because I scolded RaeAnne for running into the room, opening the door and screaming at Mei Mei trying to wake her up from her nap (it was deliberate not an accident) or maybe it's because she is bored at home and wants to go out.

Anyway, I'm not complaining cos it's Friday and I was already tired after one week. Hubby needed to concentrate on writing his new book today so we decided to call MIL to see if RaeAnne is keen to stay over. If she is, she will help Nai Nai to 'tui1 chuang2' ie. move the queen size bed to the wardrobe so that she can sleep there with Nai Nai tonight. When hubby called, Nai Nai said she was waiting for us (Aw...) but after she asked if RaeAnne wants to help her 'tui chuang'. She said no, then changed her mind and said yes. Normally, this time, we will be dealing with RaeAnne's walking into our room many times cos she doesn't want to sleep alone. No way, hubby can be working on his laptop while I update our blog. :P

Oh well, think it's good for her to spend some time with ye ye and Nai nai. Poor Mei Mei has been sleep deprived cos Cheh Cheh always 'disturbs' and wakes her up (either by loud shouting or throwing tantrums in the room). Many times, she has KO on her bumbo seat at evening times. See pics for proof. Today, I went out around 5pm to have dinner with hubby (steamboat buffet at Crystal jade, we had a diastrous one with RaeAnne the last time). Mei Mei was sleeping when we came back at 740pm, she woke up at 8pm, I bfed her and she KO again. Still sleeping now. Poor gal, she must be trying to catch up on sleep while Cheh Cheh is not at home.

Noticed that Mei Mei is getting more and more attached to Filamie. For the last 2 nights, when the maid brings her over to me to BF, she will turn over from the football hold position and look at the closing door and start crying. Sigh. Can't be helped cos she is always handled by the maid. Looks like hubby and I got to start bonding more with her liao. Not fair to always neglect her just because Cheh Cheh is always demanding for our attention. Hubby suggests bringing Mei Mei over to Ye Ye, Nai Nai house more often to 'break' the bond. From bonding with the maid to bonding with grandparents. Duh... Shouldn't we be trying to strengthen the bond with her instead? :P
