Lei Ho Hong Kong!
We arrived yesterday and it already feels so much better than shanghai. It’s a lot busier and crowded. But definitely feels more comfortable here.
There are so many things we need to do. We need to find an apartment (we are in temporary service apartment till we find one), doctors and a pediatrician and possibly figure out where to buy baby stuff. Lots to do.
I’m a little sick from my allergies and Ollie is doing ok. His naps and bedtime sleep are all over the place. He will go to sleep at night with his routine but it’s been at different times so we’ll have to get back to a normal schedule. Plus we need an infant bath, I gave him one in the sink last night. He didn’t like it, he usually loves bath time.
On the airplane, poor Ollie cried every time the air pressure changed. Add to the fact that he runs super hot so we were both sweating. He also is super long so it was almost impossible to feed him since he covered a seat and a half lying down. But I’m proud of him, he was in good sprints here and there.
There was a woman across the aisle from us who had a little boy. She gave me dirty looks the entire time because Ollie was crying. I was sad to see that because as a parent you would think they would understand how difficult it is. I tried with all my might to help soothe Ollie, but sometimes you just can’t. If you’re EVER on a plane with a crying baby, flash a smile and a look of understanding. It really goes a long way and the parents will be able to calm their baby more because they will feel calmer too.
Hong Kong, I’m ready for you. Your are a beast of a city but I hope great things for my little boy and my husband.
There was a little boy on the elevator that noticed Ollie asleep in the ergo carrier.
He says to his nanny: “bee-bee fun gao ah” (baby is sleeping)
Then he looks at me and flashes a smile.
I say: “hai-ya, bee-bee fun gao ah”. (yes, baby is asleep)
