So its Week 12, and it's Plum Time! Woo!
Plums are nice fruits. Hooray!
Week 12 means the end of the first trimester soon, and I'm kind of glad because the cow has seemed.. well kind of unreal since I can't see anything beyond the fats on my tummy sticking out yet. I'm looking forward to being able to feel cow's movements and seeing a visible bump appearing.
As for Miss Mouse, she has had many new experiences in the last week.
Last Thursday, we brought her out for tea with my mum, mum-in-law and aunty Ah Chin. Mouse was fussing the whole time and we finally hit on the idea of giving her (just a little) the food we were eating. Of course, no sumptuous spread for her. She only got some plain porridge and plain bread. But that was enough to keep her happy for awhile. When she got bored again, she decided to climb the cake display (ulp!) Amazingly she could climb the smooth sided display. Don't ask me how. She is a monkey more than a mouse!
On Thursday morning she had some pictures taken with her in Daddy's car. Daddy was most miserable at sending off his Suzy, but Sophie was more than happy to crawl all over and abuse the interior and in general make a most cute nuisance of herself. Will upload the pictures when I get my hands on the camera!
Sunday, we had Sophie dedicated in church. Again, pics when I get the softcopies! The mouse was a terror all morning long, clambering in and out of the Nursery play area and looking so pleased with herself for figuring out how; refusing milk for 6 hours and requiring 3 people to change her diaper (1 to hold her arms, 1 to hold her legs and 1 to change her which was finally managed only in standing position!). Thankfully she fell asleep the moment we began queueing and didn't squall during the dedication! Whew.
Sunday evening, she learnt to climb up the sofa all by herself using her newly discovered climbing ability. And then she tried climbing the sides of her playpen. Oh dear. What are we going to use to contain this mouse next?
