It’s Winter… Two More Seasons to Go

Posted May 31st, 2011 in Ume and Baby 2 Comments »

Hmmm … Hiro doesn’t drink much milk at night these days, and sometimes keeps waking up.  During the day is ok, he drinks around 150ml – 180ml per feed.  At night, just 60ml per feed.  He doesn’t take long nap during the day, and we do play-time at least once a day, so he should be tired, sleepy, and hungry at night.  And, he is happy during and after bath time, but once I finish dressing him he starts crying – every night.  Is there any reason?  Too tired? Or he know he’s going to be put to sleep?

I go out with Hiro very often now.  Just two of us.  Bit boring to stay at home all day… and I keep eating something if I’m at home. 🙁  But, I ‘m still not 100% comfortable about going shopping with Hiro.  How people go shopping with babies??  I mean, I can’t push a stroller and a shopping trolly at a same time.  Just carry a baby on shoulder?  Using a baby sling or a carrier?  Or just put him/her on the shopping trolly?  Every time I go shopping I can’t buy big stuff, as I push Hiro in a stroller.

It’s been raining since yesterday, as forecast predicted.  Outside is still dark around 6:30 am.  I feel that there is no “autumn” in Perth.  It’s hot in summer, then suddenly the air becomes very cold.  In Japan, autumn is very distinguished.  The sky is high, the air is cool down, less humidity, dragon flies everywhere, rice fields turns brown colour, and mountains start to change their colours to yellow, orange and red.

In Perth it’s winter now (It should be.  It’s almost June), and it’s the middle of rainy season in Japan.  Very humid season….

Two more seasons, then we are all in Japan 😀

    Yay!!! The time will go so fast!
    When you take Hiro shopping you could take his baby capsule from the car and put it in the shopping trolley. You would still have a bit of room for groceries. Or you could put him in a sling. I have seen mothers and fathers with the sling on the front of themselves. The babies always seem very happy 🙂
    I also don’t like the ‘seasons’ in Australia. One day it is stinking hot, the next day it is freezing cold.
    I never know what to wear at this time of year!

    Oh thanks! I didnt think of putting the baby capsule in the trolley! That would be easy…

    Me too! And, even in winter it gets warm during the day in Perth, and I start sweating when wearing wool sweater :p
