I’m still ALIVE

Sorry lah folks… i really cannot find time to blog these few weeks. Hands are really tight, whatever time I have left is very precious, so I dedicated it to my boy. Now that he has slept, I quickly come up here to blog a few sentence to confirm that I am still very much alive and kicking.

For mummies who miss my boy, here is a half naked pic of him. I snap it when we were rolling around in bed. hahaha I always like to roll around in bed with my boy.

He has learnt how to “pray pray” this evening. Still can’t do “thank kiss”, “pank kiss” nor “frank kiss”. Dec has also grown more vocal over the past few weeks. He’s now babbling alot but he don’t really make much sense.

For awhile we celebrated that he is sleeping on the dot at about 10+ nightly, now his sleeping routine has gone haywire again… Yesterday he refused to close his eyes till 2+ in the morning….

Me and my team have a booth at the book fair, so mamas, if you all happen to go to the book fair and pass by booth 07 can say hello to me.

I will update more often in 2-3 weeks time, meanwhile do bear with me.

Good night!

Musical Baton

Ohhh after reading Phoebe’s post on Musical Baton then the sotong me realised, I am suppose to do the same after I got the arrow from hahahah

Total volume of music files on my computer:

Just reformatted my computer last week, so currently music files do not exist in my computer. How sad!!!

The last CD I bought was:

Barney… for my son

Song playing right now:

Blasting gun shots from my eClub users….

Five songs I listen to a lot, or that mean a lot to me:

Self created humming lullaby by Kiat (my husband) – he use that lullaby to make my baby sleep

Non sensical babbling by Baby Declan – I assume he is singing cos he will do the babbling in one whole breathe non stop.

That’s about it actually, I don’t really have much time to listen to songs :p

Five people to whom I’m passing the baton:

Online Triplets

Academy of Greetings

Most parents will send their babies to the “Academy of Greetings” along the way when this little ones develop from a newborn to a toddler. What does the Academy of Greetings teach? Ohh simple, they teach the kid to wave bye bye, signal hello, throw flying kisses and most importantly do the ang bao churning act of gongxi gongxi. Sounds familiar??

My kid has graduated from the course of waving goodbye, and sometimes when he is in a friendly mood, he’ll extend out his arm and twig it a little to signal hello. So, I’ve enrolled him into another course, which is the course of throwing a flying kiss, which the whole family mispronounce and always call it the “frank kiss” or “thank kiss”. So hello Lims, its call the flying kiss and not any other kisses.

In a bide to teach him this flirty act, since many people keep asking my confuse baby for it, I place my palm on my own lips, kiss my palm and then removing my palm in a throwing out motion. While I demo to him, I keep telling him:’ Baby flying kiss, flying kiss.” After seeing his silly mum demo for the longest time, he gets a slight hint of what is expected from him, so he place his palm on his pacifier (he’s got the pacifier in his mouth) and then he mimic the throwing out motion.

Guess what? Instead of a flying kiss, I got a flying pacifier. Morale of the story, next time before you teach your kid the act of flying kiss, make sure that he/she does not has a pacifier in his/her mouth.

Newfound skills

Phew has been pretty busy lately… not much time to give updates on my little boy.

He is coming to 11 months old already. Wow! He has learnt how to sit up on his own. His newfound skill also includes pulling himself up to a standing position with the help of furniture around him. Most babies when they learnt to pull themselves up to a standing position, they will then attempt to walk a few steps sideways while hanging onto the aide.

This boy, instead of attempting to walk a few steps, he is more interested in climbing upwards…..I can foresee that once he learnt to walk, he’ll want to climb the stairs and window grills more than walking.

He is also getting naggier by the day, when the mood strikes, he’ll babble on and on and on. Very lor soh….. but cute! Hahaha I actually enjoy his babbling and will join in too! so u get a pair of naggy mum and son, wonder whether we are driving the dad up the wall.

More newfound skills in my next update. Now gotta run out of office fly home and hug my son!

Don’t Trap ME!

After the humpty dumpty experience, we are finding other ways to trap that boy. But ahhh this little powerhouse ahhh just hates to be confined! Look at the below “progress” photos when we put him in his high chair during his dinner time.

ok! I’ve sit inside long enough.. mummy “bao bao”….

*Yawn* When is somebody gonna get me out of here…..

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

take..me.. out.. pleeeaaasseee…..

See how this boy “wilt” in his seat? All these happen within minutes. This boy really got itchy backside.. cannot sit still.. If you don’t take him out, he’ll refuse to eat and kick up a fuss and start blowing out his food like merlion.

We thought play pan was a good idea. It’s the safest place we can leave him in when we really need to get something done. He hates it too…

That amount of toys can only keep him entertain for like 5 mins? After which he’ll cry and try to push himself through the net… begging to be let out…

We are really running short of ideas on how to confine him in a safe way….

Mama In Need

I met a soon to be mama who is very young and single. The sad thing is she has no one around to help her through her pregnancy… Absolutely no one… Her family will not be there for her, I won’t disclose why as this is very personal to her. Her situation really touch my heart. I wish I can help her out in all aspects… but there is only so much I can do.

I have offered her my assistance if she need someone to send her to and accompany her back from the hospital after her delivery. Mama Fannie has also offered her assistance. It’s sad to deal with this alone. But she is very brave and optimistic. I salute her for she choose to keep the baby instead of letting a wonderful creation waste away. Thus I think for us who are fortunate to be able to afford to buy things for our own child, it’s only right that we extend a little helping hand towards her. No obligations though. If you have something extras which your own babies aren’t using, list it down in the comments so that I can take stock and see how to liase and send it to her. I’ve done up a list of things which I think she may need :

1) Warm water dispenser/ boiler
2) Milk bottles/teats
3) Bottles sterilizer (or at least a pot for dumping all the bottles in to boil)
4) Breast pump
5) Breast pad
6) Maternity Sanitary Pads
7) Baby Cot / Baby Sarong (yao lan)
8) Diapers
9) Formula milk powder
10) Wet wipes
11) Ru Yee Yu
12) Baby powder
13) Baby powder container
14) Milk powder dispenser
15) Mittens/Booties
16) Baby Clothes
17) Baby toys
18) Tonics
19) husk pillows/bolsters
20) baby blanket
21) Baby shampoo/shower foam
22) Pacifier
23) Nappy Rash Cream
24) Baby Pram/ Stroller
25) Baby Rocker/Bouncer

If u gals/guys have anything to add on please feel free to let me know.

Last weekend was a real busy week for us as mentioned here. We brought the little one to the Jurong Bird Park on Saturday morning.

The weather was real humid and his grandma kept complaining about the sun. Kind of a spoil spot… It didn’t help that I actually forgotten to apply sunblock for Declan. He ended up 1 shade darker at the end of the trip.

Below are some photos taken during the visit.

There are quite some new pics updated in my multiply album.
