6 weeks milestone

She can now go for 3.5 to 4 hours feeding intervals at night! Nursing timing has also significantly decreased: she used to take 30 minutes on average, she now takes about 10 minutes in the day and less than 20 minutes at night.


Pan fried chicken thighs

Some time ago I found myself having to cook for only A and me, so with much excitement and enthusiasm I decided to do a one dish meal by pan frying chicken thighs. I followed this recipe and it turned out pretty wonderful! The cooking time was long but it actually gave me time to lounge around instead of hovering over the pan in the kitchen.

I served this up with a modified version of this side dish (substituted bacon with pork slices and corn with mixed beans) and dinner was ready!

I really do relish in trying out non-Chinese style recipes, though those opportunities are few and far between.

5 weeks milestone

Slept the night in her own cot. We were starting to worry that we spent half a grand on the cot and other paraphernalia for nothing!

I bought a beansprout husk filled pillow to be placed across her chest, it is supposed to induce a sense of security. I don’t know how true that is, but last night I made the mistake of removing it for just a short while and she almost immediately tried to flip herself over! She’s the infant version of Scotty 2 Hotty:

Needless to say I immediately replaced the pillow. The pillow shall be permanently glued to her belly henceforth!
