A Day in Max & Mommy Life

Friday, November 7, 2008

  •  6:15 AM Max wakes up, crying for milk but daddy change his diaper instead so he cried louder. Then, mommy feeds him while daddy gets ready to go the office. He tried to go the office early that way he can go home early.
  • 7:00 AM Max is done with his milk; fully awake, smiling & laughing because his belly is full. He then accompany mommy eating breakfast, then washing dishes and his bottle.
  • 7:40 AM I was thinking to take him to walk around the block since he's fully awake. It's very cold outside so I have to put on hat, blanket, and extra socks to keep him warm. By the time I was about to put on my jacket he's asleep already =( So I took everything off again and put him on his crib.
  • 8:40 AM He wakes up, asking for some more milk
  • 9:10 AM He’s done with his milk. I changed his diaper then I let him play by himself inside his crib while I took shower. He was still playing quietly even after I was done taking shower. So I got chance to make the bed and dry my hair.
  • 10:00 AM Max cried, he wants to go to sleep again. I put him on his bouncer and play his lullaby. Then he felt asleep.
  • 11:00 AM He wakes up, asking for milk again
  • 11:30 AM Max’s done drinking. He then accompany mommy doing laundry while sitting on his bouncer. After sometimes he cried because he was bored. So I took him to walk outside using selendang because the baby carrier was inside the washing machine.
  • 12:30 PM Max felt asleep while walking around the block. I put him on his swing then I eat lunch + cooking dinner.
  • 3:00 PM Max wakes up, asking for milk
  • 4:00 PM by this time.... mommy is "teler" already while Max is fresh from his nap. Can't wait for daddy to be home. I should have slept when he was sleeping. So... I sing songs and play with him on the bed.
  • 5:00 PM Max cries for his milk again
  • 5:30 PM Chris got home from work. Yay! He took over burping and playing with Max while I clean up the house a bit.
  • 6:30 PM Go to Costco. He was sitting nicely on his cart then suddenly he become fuzzy. We thought he was bored but then we checked his diaper was full. Good thing in the U.S. both the men & women's rest room have diaper changing stations so Chris can change him while I kept on shopping.
  • 7:45 PM Went to Trader Joe's to buy some grocery. Max felt asleep in his seat but suddenly wakes up on our way to Vietnamese restaurant. He cried for about 15-20 minutes 'till we arrive at the restaurant. We then gives him milk right away. Afterward, he was quietly watching mommy & daddy eat dinner on his car seat.
  • 9:45 PM Got home, then gives Max a bath. He lovesssss his bath time
  • 10:00 PM Talking and playing with daddy while I finish up my laundry
  • 10:20 PM Max cries for his final milk for the day before falling asleep on my arms after the feeding
  • 11:00 PM Wakes up when Chris put him on his bed. So we do his bed time routine: put him on his bouncer, turn on the fan (the sound soothes him because it reminds him of the sound he used to hear in my womb), then we play his lullaby. It wasn't enough he was still crying. What's missing? Chris forgot to sing hi...hi..hi... I was on the other room folding my laundry when I heard him sing: "Amazing Grace how sweet the sound humm...hum...hum.. hum..." Anyway... it works! Max calms down and sleeps soundly in a minute. Daddy moved him to his crib and swaddled him.
  • 12:00 AM Max was sleeping soundly on his crib while mommy & daddy pray.

See you in the morning my baby. May God bless you with sweet dream.

Much love,


  1. Amazing Grace is also Chloe's first song to calm her down and help her to go to bed since she was a little baby.
