5-1 Injections

Gor Gor says:

I went for my 3rd and 4th injections at NUH on 30 March at 3.45pm. The last time when I went for my 1st and 2nd injections, my parents were so worried that I will cry, they said I am very brave, I only cry briefly when I was being injected and after that I was alright. I didn’t have a fever, that is a huge relief to my parents and grandparents.
When we reached the clinic, the nurses recognized Mummy and said I have grown so much, I looked like a six months old baby. They told Mummy that I look like her and have Daddy’s height. When I was born, I look exactly like my Daddy and now I begin to look like Mummy, they said I have Mummy’s eyes and Daddy’s nose. The nurse told Mummy that I am very handsome. When the nurse plays with me, I keep laughing and smiling at her, she is so sweet trying to put me at ease as she will be the one injecting me later.
My doctor who is the head of department for Neonatology at NUH carefully and patiently do a detailed checkup on me. He told Mummy that I am considered big but still in proportion. My weight now is 8.6kg and length is 68cm according to the chart, I am at the 97% and my head circumference is 41 cm, at 70% according to the chart. I am at my fourth month now.
Mummy didn’t get to see me being injected as she needs to go over to the pharmacy to get Rotarix Vaccine. I am the first baby in the clinic to use this as Daddy insists that I use this new medication. Daddy is in a meeting so Mummy and Grandma brought me to the clinic. My Grandma accompanied me when I was being injected by the nurses, when Mummy hurried back, I was already sleeping. They told Mummy that I cried briefly and then fell asleep but they have to wake me up again to squirt the vaccine into my mouth. I wake up and find that they are trying to coax me into opening my mouth, oh no, not again, I cry. I know they are trying to comfort me, I hear them saying try not to make me split the vaccine out and I didn’t. Mummy keeps comforting me Good boy! Good boy!



I am four months old


I am getting more and more active and responsive at this stage, I will keep waving my arms, kicking my legs, crawling everywhere, banging Mummy’s keyboard, grabbing things and putting them into my mouth, wailing at the top of my voice for milk and attention. I am so busy, drooling, blowing air … making buuu uuuu sound … despite all, I smile and chuckle a lot … my family feel that I am getting more and more adorable. I entertain them with my endless laughing and sweet smile :-)
I can make vocal sound and my family love to imitate my facial expression and sounds. When they say “boo” “buu” to me, I will response back much to their delight. This will help to promote my sense of communication when they mirror me. I will react when they make noises and try to say something back.
Experts said that through this method, babies can understand the importance of language and begin to understand the cause and effect. Babies will learn to realize that what he says makes a difference.
When we went to church a nice lady was asking Daddy am I seven to eight months old? When she learn that I am four months, she goes, “s”he is a big girl. Hee hee … I always get mistaken as a girl. My parents don’t mind and Mummy wants to get a pink dress for me just for fun. Phew, it is just a thought. At one stage of her life, her dresses are mostly in pink and her friends think that her favorite color is pink.When we went shopping at CK Tang, the sales staff knew mummy as she often went there to buy my stuff. They love to play with me. Mummy was busy getting a toy for me and Daddy asked her to look at me. I was surrounded, daddy said I go around to “dian” people. Daddy meant that I go around to charm people. Mummy was so amused. One lady walked past and said this baby is so pretty.
Hee hee … they all thought that I am a girl. When they knew that I am a boy, they said that I am a handsome boy.
