Today - 22 months 3 weeks 2 days
Little sweet pea - 17 weeks 3 days
My very opinionated gal wanted to wear a pair of red socks with her purple Maryjanes to school. On the way to the classroom, I told her it didn't match and it's ugly. She was angry and refused to say bye to me. Today isn't the first time she wore an unmatched pair of socks with her shoes. Everytime she "wins" she gave out a "wicked" laughter which is so funny.
Little sweet pea has made his presence felt again last night. It wasn't kicks and again I do not know how to describe the movements made by him. The last few days I have been packing some hands me down from Oli's clothing for him. Not a lot but there are still some neutral colored clothings for him. Not that I am being unfair not to shop like how I shop for Oli before she was born, was more like we were blessed with many nice new clothings during baby shower then and ended with lots of clothes. So we are taking the clothes shopping slow and see how it goes after he's born. However, I got to admit I still melt when I see those cute infant gals clothings. Haha.
I have been thinking quite a bit on what to name our boy. My friend and sisters can text me out of the blue suggesting names. Both wanted Orlando Fok. But erm.. I couldn't quite accept for now and we shall see how.

Today - 22 months 2 weeks 1 day
Oli can count! It's not a complete count though. Few months back before the bump was really big, I have been taking the long flight of stairs with her after school. We used to count from 1 to 10 again and again till we reached the ground. I miss those days but it's dangerous to do it again because Oli has been climbing up and down the stairs without wanting any support from us.
She started off with 1, 8 & 10 since 19m. I thought she stopped at these 3 numbers. Back in HK, we were stranded in the jam in a cab and in order to occupy her, we did counting together. She can count in chronological order with me saying 1,3,4, 5. She said 2,6,7,9,10 filling up the blanks. And she can do backward counting 10,9, 8. It was definitely a proud moment of a mummy. However, these days when I wanted her to do counting, she will ignore me. Like what the teachers and me facing the same, Oli didn't quite like people to question her unless she's in fantastic mood.

Today - 22 months 1 week 6 days
Today's scan was to show its a baby boy! Baby boy was facing down and kicking around but we managed to see his little penis. We also took another look at his fingers and thumbs, feet and his spine and all well.
Dr Chin and the nurse also asked about my weight loss if I have been eating. I am just catching up but still hoping I won't turn into a hippo by the end of pregnancy. Same as with Oli, I hope I won't gain more than 8kg and hope to keep within this range. Also, baby cannot be too big for a successful vbac. Judging from Olivia's birth weight at early delivery hopefully baby boy's weight is just right so there won't be any rupture also. Looking forward to next scan!
I asked Oli to give Didi a hug and she was so happy to give one. I hope she can be a lovely sister and welcome her baby brother with us.

And so..... Oli is having a baby brother!
The clinic called and said the panaroma results came out fine! I asked about the gender (paid bloody so much money for the test must ask everything!). I didn't expect to know my baby's gender over a phone call.
I am so looking forward to tomorrow's scan to see how big he has grown and how is he now.
My hunch on baby's gender has always even a gal. The first week when I knew I was pregnant, hubby and I felt it was a boy. But as times go by, I kept thinking it should be a gal judging by the amount of the nauseated days which was worse off than when I had Oli. Lost more kilos than when I had Oli also and my weight is still hovering the same as first weight taken at the clinic. And so the heartbeat theory was not accurate because baby's heartbeat was high which usually meant it's a gal and based on the Chinese calendar, it's a gal also. Anyways, gender isn't that important after all the saga of this false positive from the oscar scan. I was really wishing for a healthy baby.
When I told Oli she is having a baby brother today, she looked at my bump and gave a slight knock and said "Didi Mei Mei". Aiyah so funny!
We went nearby to buy some fruits and decided to let Oli to indulge in some ice cream. When I see how she scoop her ice cream and how she controlled the cup with another hand...she's my little grown up.
Oli wanted to take control of the shopping trolley and didn't even wanted us to touch the trolley.

Like I said before Oli has been wanting to do things on her own and so this morning she opened the milk dispenser on her own and accidentally spilled them. She got her "down with sore throat and lack of sleep" daddy very angry. Morning was such a long day as if. She was whining and crying the whole time and I couldn't even count the time she wasn't so. I don't know when is this going to end. It's seriously very straining on us.
Oli seldom or rather we never caught her being so whiny and a cry toddler when she's with her grandparents. We went to Bird park yesterday since it was so rare grandpa didn't had to work and grandma wasn't playing mahjong. She had so much fun. She loves birds. If we are taking a walk outdoor she loves to pause for a few moment to enjoy the birds and sometimes chasing after them. She will say bye to the birds as well.

Oli these days has been seriously exercising her independence so much that even her school teachers have decided to let her be less upsetting her. Brushing teeth has been a struggle because she wants to do it on her own. Usually we will brush for her and then she will brush on her own. But these days, she been wanting to do it all by herself. In school, she insists to feed herself with zero help. Hence, the teacher says it's ok to let her be. Wearing shoes also. Taking her bag from cubby hole also. Wearing clothes also. Taking off clothes as well. There's so much that she wants to do on her own. The school says it's a good thing anyway.
Today I picked her up slightly earlier than usual from school from her full day program because I wanted her to have some fruits earlier before dinner. It was still early so we had reading session and she insisted she wanted to do on our bed. I dozed off halfway through because she wanted to flip the pages and read in her own and left me so bored. When I was in a daze, she read her color book, "blue", "yellow"... Totally caught me by surprise. Then I went through the book with her and she read after me for all colors.
