A month of Clara

It seems like just yesterday that we found out Pearl was pregnant with #3, how time flies, Clara is now one month old.

To celebrate, we held a big BBQ for the family on 10 Oct 2010. I think there were about 80 of us at the BBQ.

That sunday was also the first day Cleo got off her training wheels.

Clara have been sleeping alot (like all babies do), been getting breast fed alot, pooping ALOT and interestingly GRUNTING alot especially at night when she is asleep. She keeps on stretching herself as if like she is suppose to transform or something. Really don’t understand as Cli and Cleo both did not make such strange noises.

When she is awake, she is quite passive and stares at things alot. You can really tell that she can’t focus yet and don’t know what is in front of her. She is constantly in a daze.

When she sleeps, sometimes she pouts her lips and its super cute. She does it very often, so not too difficult to catch it on camera. Maybe she is dreaming of being breast fed.

Her hands are oh so tiny.

So are her feet.

Sometimes she sleeps in this position and she can be gone for several hours. It really looks super comfortable. It reminds me of the time when Cli was found sleeping in our walk-in cupboard.

But most of the time, Clara is in a daze. She is high on mommy’s goodness every 2 hours or so.

I wonder what will Clara be like when she grows up. As parents we really don’t know what to expect, only time will tell. All we can do is to provide her the best environment we can.

  1. Hi Nick,

    I’m your blog reader, but I seldom comment. Though after reading this post, I have to! Firstly, congrats to you and Pearl on your newborn! She’s so lovely.

    Lastly, I just wanna say that I have a 6 month old baby, and interestingly, she is EXACTLY the same as Clara when she was a newborn. The grunting and the stretching. Apparently, my friends who have had babies this year also observed the same. That’s so intriguing! But not to worry though, it’s just a phase. Mine grown out of the grunting phase when she was about 8 weeks old. :)

  2. Hi there, congrats to ur newborn. My niece was born on the same day too.

    I used to read Clie’s blog by you then stopped for a while coz I lost the link.

    I recently found it again and was kinda disappointed that you haven’t been updating her blog.

    Please do not stop writing about her and Cleo.

    I think they serve a very good gift for ur children when they grow up.

    I’m thinking of starting one for my niece. :)
