You must be kidding me...every TWO HOURS?

I am like a zombie while updating this post this morning. I hardly had a good night rest last night. I have been waking up every 2 hours to prepare milk since 2:30pm.

Being an old man like myself, I need time to get back to sleep once I am awaken in the middle of the night. And last night, every time, when I was just about to doze back to my la la land to continue my pursue of some beautiful bikini clad babes on some gorgeous white fine sandy beaches, I had to wake up again to prepare `nen nen'...(milk)....

I am having a headache and I could hardly keep my eyes opened.

And before you go ...."ooo...baby Chenya still wake up so many times for her night feed meh?" ....

No!...It is not baby Chenya. She slept like a log from 10:30pm all the way till 5pm before she had her one and only feed and that sometimes, she sleeps through.

Yes. You are right. It is my dear prince, RYAN! He used to able to sleep through the night with an occasional one additional feed when Chenya wanted her milk.

Picture of my prince having an early celebration of his 4th birthday at KL Hilton over the weekend.......

But for reason unknown, for the past couple of nights, he has asked for more frequent night feed. And the worst for last night. I literally ran out of clean bottles. He has four bottles, three of which we keep in the bedroom and one in the kitchen.

We gave him 4oz at around 11pm to get him to sleep. He can not sleep without his milk and his bolster. At 2:30am, he got up and wanted another round. I got up (I just managed to doze off at 2am actually) and made him 6oz. He finished it in 10 minutes and passed me back the empty bottle.

I thought that was it and turned over to catch up with my slumber. Just as I was enjoying my dream, he woke up and asked for his second feed. I thought it was close to 6:00am. One look at the alarm clock showed only 4:15am! I got up and made him another 6oz and passed it to him. Just as I pulled my blanket over, Chenya woke up hungry. I thought to myself, this is going to be a long night.

Wifey got up to pick her up from her baby cot while I prepare her bottle of breast milk. Because the breast milk is cold, I had to warm it up and that took 15 minutes, which seemed like forever, when you were sleep deprived. Finally, got that done and as wifey was feeding Chenya, I dozed off. I thought I would have a good 3 hours sleep till morning.

Did I get that? No! Ryan got up AGAIN at 6am and wanted his third round ..and I have used up all the bottles in the room. I had to staggered  downstairs, look for the bottle, prepare the milk and stumbled back upstairs and gave it to him. This time, I made him 7.5oz and he finished it again in 10 minutes. He passed me back the bottle and asked me to pat him to sleep. Arrrrggghhhhh......

I really do not remember what time I went back to sleep. All I remembered is Ryan calling me to wake up at 8am because he has a Science Camp this morning at his day care center....

This is going to be a long day .........I have just finished my first shot of double espresso and I think I need another shot to jump start my engine ....
