OMG Blood!!!

Miss Noelle was having a really hard time sleeping last night. She felt asleep around 9 which was normal. But she woke up a few times in the middle of night and was crying and crying. Finally she went back to sleep. Around 5:10-20, I heard the daddy yelled, "Kat, we need to GO!" Well, at least that's what I thought he said, you see I was totally asleep when he said that. And then he said, "she's bleeding!" That definitely woke me up, so I quickly turned on the light. And sure enough, Miss Noelle's got blood in her nose and all over her mouth, it was such a frightening sight to see. We couldn't figure out if she's having nose bleed or what (she was coughing on and off all night). So we cleaned her up and turned out it was her nose. Since we are the first time parents and Miss Noelle has never had a nose bleed before, we called the peds advise line. I continued to clean Noelle (she started to bleed again soon after we cleaned her the first time) while the daddy talked to the nurse. Miss Noelle was back to normal right away tho, she started to play with her toys and was "talking" again. According to the daddy, the nurse wasn't very helpful, she basically read the "what to do when there's nose bleed" pamphlet to him (which he knows from work). However, since Miss Noelle was all better, we just emailed her doctor and see if she has anything else to say.

This ordeal ended around 6am and I was ready to go to bed. The daddy told me to sleep and he'll watch Miss Noelle. I didn't argue with that :-P But they both came in soon after I laid down. Miss Noelle actually slept too (good girl!), I guess she realized it's not her awake time yet.

I'm so thankful that she was not in any more discomfort and that the bleeding has stopped quickly. And for the daddy to notice it, otherwise we'll be washing our bed sheets (Miss Noelle still co-sleeps with us). But what a way to wake up! Don't ever do this again, baby girl!

Temper Tantrums

Our precious angel is not even 2 yet (almost 17 months), but I think she may be heading toward the much feared "terrible 2" already. Miss Noelle now throws temper tantrums when things aren't going her way. She'll either lay down (face on the ground), or she'll throw herself down and won't let you pick her up. Ahhhhh, whyyyyy?

They said the best way is to ignore them when they are having their episode. But it's not that easy to do when you are in public. And normally that's when they'll have the tantrum thingy going on (in public). So what we've been doing is just pick her up and tell her it's not OK. Miss Noelle knows "no", she'll shake her head when we say "no". Her fav thing to do is to shake her head when she doesn't want to eat certain thing or that she's done eating. It's pretty good actually, so we don't have to guess. She kinda signs, but definitely has the "all done" and "more" mixed up, lol. Her "more" means "all done" in her book, luckily mommy and daddy understand her perfectly.

I also gave Miss Noelle her very first hair cut last Thursday. Her bangs are getting really ridiculously long, it's past her eyes and it makes it really hard to see. So when she was sleeping on Thursday night, I went in and chopped her bangs. I just grabbed and cut, and it actually turned out pretty even :-P She looks really cute with the new bangs.

I think I need to start loading pics here, I bet you are tired of all text entries. haha.

Whole day!!

So most of you know by now that Miss Noelle goes to daycare twice a week. She let the caregiver fed her last week, so we thought it's time to let her go to daycare whole day instead of just the morning. Of course the mommy was very nervous about it. Not seeing her kiddie for a whole day? And not knowing whether she'll take her naps/eat the food. It's just a brand new experience for the both of us. The cell phone was right by the finger tip the whole day and of course the mommy never gotten any calls from the daycare. She was quite nervous when it's time to pick Miss Noelle up. This little girl fake cried when she saw the mommy walking in. And according to the caregiver, Miss Noelle didn't cry at all, not even when the daddy left (which she usually cries a little). She only really cried when it was her time to nap. But c'mon now, napping at a new environment without any fuss? You are asking too much, lol. She still slept for an hour, which isn't bad at all. The parental was very impressed with Miss Noelle's first whole day at the daycare. We can say that from now on, it's pretty much always going to be whole day at the daycare!!

Miss Noelle also learned her toes/nose/ears. If you ask her, she'll point to those parts most of the time. Before she only knows the belly button, and boy does she love the belly buttons. She'll yank your shirt up to find your belly button, so beware!
