Christina has been doing a great job of being patient with the baby, especially during the wee hours of the morning when I’m fast asleep and Micah’s all fussy and upset. He seems to pick the most inconvenient hours of the day to be difficult, but Christina never fails to maintain her cool. She’ll talk to him and sing him songs while he bawls his eyes out for no apparent reason.

Interestingly enough, each morning, we have the same little converstion

Me: So how many times did he get up to feed?
Christina: oh, 2 or 3 times I guess.
Me: Really? I thought he got up just once… 

So apparently I’m sound asleep through most of Micah’s midnight snack hours. Just goes to show that Christina’s not only patient, she’s getting way less sleep than I am. How she manages to stay calm and collected while surviving on 2 hour chucks of sleep is a mystery to me.



  1. Well done, Christina, welcome to motherhood. Keep up the good work, it will all get better as the days goes by. As for you Chun Liang, you did a marvelous job keeping us inform of cute little Micah. Love from three of us Sam, Ailin and Caitlyn
