Afternoon with Teej

I need to replace my mother this afternoon because she needs to attend to many things and my brother went out as well to process his requirements. Since I just at home, I took care of my baby nephew the whole afternoon. I went to their house.  At first,it was good because he was sleeping. I said myself I can continue reading the novel on my mobile, but as soon as he wakes up, That is the start of sacrifice. He loves to move a lot. Once he holds on something, he will bring it to his mouth. I stop reading and play some music instead.
He loves to be carried so most of the afternoon I was carrying him. Imagine i am carrying a more than 9 pounds baby for 30 minutes, it makes my shoulder complaining from pain. My arms were well stretch and the worst is the pain at my back. I told to myself that for sure, instead of blogging, I will be sleeping later tonight. Good thing my mother came back past 5. She went to the market and prepare it for my father to cook it. After a little while, my brother went home too and we all had a little chit-chat.
Before I forgot, there was something happened later that I accidentally entered my ring finger inside the electric fan because I was adjusting it. I left me wounded and bleeding, Teej enjoyed seeing me in pain. I almost dropped him on the floor because of pain and he was laughing at me. He seems enjoyed me suffering from pain.
Also, he enjoys listening to my voice. As I was making him sleep, I was singing along with my background music, he loves it. Once I stop singing, since I don’t know some parts of the lyrics, he will look at me and looks like saying “continue singing”. I successfully put him to sleep that when my mother went back, he was sleeping. He only wakes up with some movements from my mother.

How hard it is to take care of a baby?

In the afternoon today, my mother can’t leave by nephew Teej in my sister’s home because my brother was not there. My brother was processing his medical that he went out. My mother brought Teej home instead. It was 3 in the afternoon and I was just starting my online activity. I do not have a choice but to take care of Teej while she was doing something at home. She fed the cats and went to the market to buy foods for us. As she left I was left with a lovely baby boy who made my muscles in pain.

Teej is a baby boy who moves all the time. He always wants attention. Once he holds on to something he will throw it. He once holds the powder holder and through it to my laptop. Now my laptop is filled with powder, I can’t clean it. It looks like it has a white dust. It looks like a newly powdered laptop right now. Other than that, he loves standing. I need to support his back and neck. I was holding his both side of his body while my head was supporting his neck. I also need to check his hands to see what he was holding because I am not sure  if all the things around our house are clean. Most of the once he holds, it is either he will throw it or bite it. Even the dogs are moving away from him because he tries to hold them and I never allow him.

I keep my attention on him all the time. When he got tired, he will become irritated. I got his bottle of milk and fed him. His head was lying on my arms. My arms were bearing the weight of his body. I feel he is more comfortable with it. He is irritated because it is hot in the afternoon and of course, it is always hot inside our house. Later on, he was sleeping and I was trying to make it deeper. My mother was through with all of her chores when it happened so it is about time also to transfer to my sister’s house. They went there while Teej was sleeping and he is so cute. I failed to take a picture of him because I was holding him all the time.

I realized, it is really hard to take care of a baby. If he gets older it will be double hard for every one of us. I hope I am fit enough to take care of him.

Teej Visits Us Today

I thought I will able to blog as early as 5 in the afternoon, but Teej, my ever cute nephew was carried by my mother. My mother went home to prepare foods for the pets. She left Teej with me and I took care of him in less than 2 hours. He was moving all the time. At first, my father was the one holding him and then he saw me and my mobile, he was moving his legs all the time, also, his arms are moving, he wants to go with me. He cried when he saw me not taking attention. When he cried, I carried him and then the start of the Selfie.

Teej already knew what to do once he saw my mobile. He will sit on my lap and focus on the mobile. Sometimes he is even the one who is clicking the timer and we will start posing in the camera. He loves Selfie and I think he is really good at it. These are some of the pictures.

Sorry for the quality of the picture because we were taking it against the light. Look how his eyes are always focusing on my mobile. He is photogenic. How cute angel he is! I still enjoyed his today. Even if he likes to stand and wants to grab the tail of the dogs, I make sure to avoid him from doing it. The dogs are curious about him and so is he. Sometimes the dogs try to kiss him but I don’t allow them to get near. It is much safer. My dogs are nice, though, they do not scratch him or do anything that could harm the baby. The also avoid him when he starts moving his arms. When the dogs avoid him, Teej will get irritated and cry. I will show him my mobile and he will start posing once again.

Isn’t he good at Selfie? I should learn from him.

Teej Again

I became a yaya for the day for my nephew. Yaya is a person who takes care of babies, toddler and kids while their parents are out. There are those who get a job as Yaya and they are getting money from it. While, me as a Yaya, means I will just need to take care of my nephew for today and I love it.  I able to took a picture of him. When he saw me, I know he was looking for my mobile because he loves to take pictures. I put it out immediately and he stops moving. He wants a nice picture taken. I will be sharing it again, of course.

He loves to move a lot. I have a pain at my back right now because I was holding him for long and he kept on moving. He loves to push his back on me, getting portion on my hair and pull it strong. Yes it was strong. He even pinched me again. I am getting harassed by him, lol.

I love his laugh. His laugh sounds like a very happy baby. He sound really satisfied by the care that he was receiving. I love when his eyebrow move. He knows how to flirt. There were times that he was silent and looking at the ceiling. I call it “kuliglig moments”. Kuliglig moment means, you will hear the sound of the grasshopper and everything is silent. I am not sure if he is thinking about something or he is seeing something in the ceiling.

I love his eyes, it is lovely. When he smiles, it shows on his eyes. Sometimes when he is putting his towel on his mouth, I know he was smiling because I can see it in his eyes. He loves eye contact. I also observed that he loves hearing a shout. When someone is shouting, he enjoys it. I was really laughing at him. What kind of baby that enjoys a scream or a shout? He is the only one.
