Whirlwind of Changes

Marcus boy turned 5 months old a few days back.
Can't believe how fast he's growing up.
Now...he screams when he's playing...when he wants something or when he just needs attention.
He can also roll over onto his tummy by himself pretty well, he just doesn't know how to roll back...hahaha
When he gets tired of being on his tummy he'll scream so we'll come to his rescue.

We have also start feeding him a little Cerelac daily.
OMG...he loves it!
When he's having Cerelac, you have to keep feeding him without pausing.
When you are slow..he'll scream =P

Marcus boy could also sit pretty well assisted and loves going for walks outside.
We reckon he's about 8+ kgs now...will know for sure when we take him to the Paed for his jab next week.

Since Marcus boy pop into our lives, everyone has been saying he looks like his pretty Mummy.
Now...he's slowly looking more and more like his Daddy!
I hope he'll be as tall as his daddy but have Mummy's teeth =)

Marcus boy is just too cute for words.
And being spoilt silly by his grand parents, grand aunties, aunties and me =P

Anyways, have been experiencing some changes in my career.
Changed jobs recently and it came as a surprised to everyone...including me.
Was headhunted and within a week, I went for an interview, got an offer and resigned.
Started working for my new company almost immediately.
I feel kinda guilty leaving my team so abruptly...but I believe they are trained well enough to manage without me....or at least until my former manager comes back after her maternity leave.
Took a guilt trip as well for leaving right before my ex-manager was supposed to deliver her baby.
Happy to report that mummy & baby are doing well =)
And we are now even friends on FB.

Just completed my 1st week in the new company.
Am still trying to find my equilibrium, stumbling around.
Hopefully things will be better soon *cross fingers*

My Cloth Diaper Stash

Recently, I've gone a little overboard with my online shopping spree....hehehe
Eric doesn't know the extend of it yet so sshhhhhhhhh...
The temptation was too great I tell I ended up with some adorable cloth diapers for Marcus boy =P

My new Grovias <3 Mod Flower & Owl AI2 (all-in-2) and Nature AIO (all-in-one)

Happy Heiny Cow and Blueberry Minky Green love love the minky fabric!

New and ready to be prep...they've gone through their first wash today...
Got myself a Planet Wise wet/dry bag in Art Deco print as well. Read super good reviews about them...crossing fingers that it lives up to the hype.
My current Ice (Blue) & Mandarin (Orange) Grovias joining new Grovia comrades for a photo shoot. I love the hook & loop (velcro) but decided to go with snaps for the new diapers just to try it out.

I was contemplating whether to get the Owl or Planes pattern as both got popular votes from Mummies & babies everywhere. Went with the Owl and they are oh-so-so cute =)

Cloth Diapers stash I have at the moment. 2 Bamboolite pocket, 5 Grovias, 1 Happy Heiny & 1 Blueberry Minky.

Since I'm really new to cloth diapering, it's advisable to try out different brands of CD (cloth diaper) to find the one that works best for my baby.
Babies are all unique so some brands will fit better than others.
I started out with Grovia (I just love the colours) and Bamboolite (was on promotion and made of bamboo which has antibacterial properties...made in M'sia)

Saw Happy Heiny(HH) & Blueberry(BB) on sale and decided to try it too...I really really wanted a CD made from minky (fluffy fabric). Saw the super cute camouflage print and I'm sold!!! =P

HH, BB and Grovia AIO are being prep at the moment...would have to go through a few more washes to get the absorbency up and then I'll try it on Marcus boy.
Even without putting it on Marcus...I already know I'm going to love my Grovia AIO.

I can't get my hands on more cloth diapers =P
Itti Bitti...I have my eyes on your fluff!
