It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything about my daughter. She is now a very cute and adorable girl. She was cute before, but now, she’s way cuter.
This is simply because she is now able to respond. She is now able to play and is able to focus on her surroundings. She lights up the whole house with her smile. Her smile is just great.
Now she can giggle and knows how to attract our attention. If we let her be for a few minutes, she will be calling us with a grunt. Sometimes when we eat, we let her accompany us at the side (laying in her bassinet), after awhile she will voice out a long sigh - bored because we’re not entertaining her.
Sometimes that’s all she wants us to do, entertain her. She’ll force herself to be awake because she wants to play.
Also when she wants to play and we do not do just that, she will start to be in a certain mood. She will moan until we do actually play with her or pick her up. And we do pick her up she will sulk and not look at us. Even if we turn her head towards us her eyes would roll and look elsewhere. How cute is that?
Good thing she sleeps soundly at night though. So far waking up early morning is not in our daily schedule. She will sleep latest by 12 (rarely happens) and wake up earliest at 5. It’s good that she heeds to our training because it would be troublesome if she wakes up early morning and the next day both of us need to go to work.
Sofeah has been a really good girl. So far she will only cry if we leave her alone for too long a time or if she’s hungry. Apart from that she will remain a good girl, squirming at times but not crying excessively.
She also adapts well. Before, she would scream on top of her lung if we sit her in her car seat or on her bouncer, but now she accepts it with little protest. If we let her be in the living room, we will turn on Playhouse Disney to keep her company - and she will actually watch quietly and at times excitedly (her eyes can’t really see clearly yet and will supposedly only see colors when she reaches the 4th month, but she can now respond to sounds and not see in double vision)
One cheeky trait of hers has got to be her persistent leg kicking and climbing. It’s not troubling for us, but it is for her. If we lay her in the middle of the bed, she will kick her way up to the point that her head touches the pillows at the headboard - in which time she will cry because she is stuck.
We also have reasons to believe that it won’t be long until she rolls over. She has been kicking herself up and lifting her body sideways these past few weeks - but just barely turning herself over.
Best of all is the fact that she is really close to her mother. Just seeing the mother makes her smile. At night when she cannot sleep, her mother just needs to hug her close to her chest and she’ll sleep soundly. She also responses to her mother’s voice - sometimes it seems like she’s trying to say something back.
Just now I had my longest conversation with her thus far. I accidentally clipped her ears (not much just a pinch) and she wanted to cry. But she didn't. Instead she smiled and talked (gugu gaga) to me. That's her funniest and cutest moment for me. When I asked her "did it hurt?", she actually answered "enggak", which me and my wife wittingly translate as "nope". We also have reasons to believe that she will speak Indonesian as a third language. Hee.
Nur Alya Sofeah, stay as nice and cute forever and I’ll support your higher education. Haha kidding! I’ll support you if that’s what you want and if I am able too. Love you!
