The 2 girls had their pedia visit this morning. Louna for her 3rd year, Kyla for her 2nd month. Louna hates to see her pediatrician, traumatized by the vaccinations she had when she was younger. No matter how we explain to her that her doctor won't inject anything, she nevertheless started to cry upon arrival at the clinic till the doctor finished his usual examination. It was almost impossible to do the check up, Louna was battling against the 3 of us! Anyhow, the essential is that, nothing is wrong with the mademoisselle. She measures 1 m and weighs 16.5 kg at 3 years old.

Kyla had 2 vaccins today, Prevenar and Infanrix. She measures 61 cm and weighs 4.9 kg. The 2 vaccins knocked her down, she'd been sleeping since an hour now. On development, the little girl started suck her hand and show us her real smile on her 2nd month.

She normally starts her day right - with a sweet smile for her mom.

Louna, on the other hand, starts to take care of her sister under my supervision, of course. She's still jealous I think but she knows how to manage now. Or should I say, we know how to manage now. Most of the time, she would say Maman à Kyla, Papa à Louna which I correct at once by telling her that Maman and Papa are both for Louna and Kyla. I don't want her to have in mind this unhealthy division between the 4 of us.

She plays a lot with her doll now, often placing Kyla and her doll next to each other. She uses most of Kyla's stuffs like shoes and diapers for her doll. It's funny to watch her sometimes because when her doll cries, she sings and rocks her baby in exactly the same manner as I do. I have to catch that on film one of these days. It's really cute.

Her behaviour at school has apparently improved. She re-started to participate in class. Her teacher finally told us her worries about Louna when Kyla was born which lasted for about two weeks as she said. She didn't tell it to us before to avoid adding problems and anyway, she was sure we were aware of Louna's change. Thankfully, everything turns back to normal now. Louna and Kyla are healthy and happy kids. That is all that matters.

Opps, by the way, I asked Louna to babysit Kyla this midday while I prepare lunch. This is how she takes care of her sister..

Louna's Bday & Kyla's Milestone

It's Louna's 3rd birthday today and it's also the 3rd time she blew her candles for this special day. She celebrated her birthday with the family last week. Then with her teacher and classmates yesterday. Today, she blew her candles with her nanny.

On her 3rd birthday, she promised to be kind because otherwise, Santa Claus or Père Nöel as they call him here won't be giving her gifts this Christmas. Good deal. Let's see if she could hold her promise till Christmas.

Kyla on the otherhand had been sleeping straight since two nights now. At the first night, she was able to hold 7 hours without asking for milk. We woke her up at 6am to nurse her. Even second time parents are still afraid of leaving their kids sleeping that long for the first time. At the second night, meaning this night, she was able to hold for 9 long hours! Whoa! That, is a milestone! Congratulations Kyla!

So what's the trick? Well, I have started mixing between breast and bottle feeding, right? I introduce bottles once or twice a day since she's a month old. But since two nights ago, I give her a bottle at around 10:30pm and that knocks her out till sunrise.

Another change is that, I let her sleep in her bed now. Since she arrived at home, she always slept with me on our bed as she's being breastfed. It's more convenient for everybody. I nurse her twice, around 3am and 6am without waking up even Papa who sleeps in the same bed as us. I think we're synchronized. We wake up at the same time so even before she cries and claim for her milk, the boob is already jacked in her mouth, lol.

So who says she'll get bad habits in sleeping in the same bed as her mom? She didn't say anything when I tucked her in bed last night.
