2nd Birthday

Declan’s 2nd birthday was on 28 June, just 2 days ago.

Both of us took a day leave to bring him out for some quiet family time. I never like crowd nor noise, so this year, Kiat decided to do away with a family gathering type of celebration. Phew!!!

We started the day at about 9am. Breakfast was at Ya Kun’s. When we walked past a “包店”, that boy stopped at the shop front and started yakking at the auntie while pointing to the buns. I assumed he was trying to place his own breakfast order, so I bought him 2 “siew mai” before we went into Ya Kun to meet the dad.

This boy only took 2 bites of the “siew mai” and then his full attention went to his ice milo. His appetite is real bad of late. He rejects rice and porridge. He did wash down 2 mouthful of toast with his milo though

To him, Ice milo is still the best….

After breakfast, we took a long bus ride from Tiong Bahru to East Coast.

Dad and son played along the coast line while I sat on the beach to look after our belongings. The dad taught him to face the sea and shout his own name and he did. Very entertaining to see a little todd shouting his own name to the open sea, it’s as if he is venting his frustration.

After awhile with the dad, he decided to pull the mum into the water. This heartless boy actually pushed me towards the wave while he ran up to take cover as the waves crashed in. arghhghhh! but ha!!! he ended up getting himself wet when he didn’t run off in time! kekekeke.

After playing in the sea, we went cycling. This is the first time he’s riding with Dad. We cycled to Bedok Jetty where he saw many uncles fishing and even witness one uncle who managed to pull in a 2 feet long fish! On the way we passed by some beautiful sand castles! Big ones!

On our return trip, the birthday boy actually fell asleep on the bike.

Our next destination was to Parkway Parade for lunch and a kiddie ride with Barney. We went to Fish & Co since he loves fish so much. He only ate a few fish nuggets…. bad appetite played up again…

Our final destination was home, on our way back, Kiat went to collect his cake. He ordered for Dec a Barney cake! Declan loves it, he kept looking at it and shouts:” Barney! Barney!”

Little Boss

This little chap really knows how to behave like a little boss. See? At our stall, he has no qualms about grabbing a free bite. Don’t he look as if he is tending the stall?

His dad was commenting that this boy is also as “hao lian” (proud) when he’s sleeping. Look at him sleeping in his bossy pose.

I’m a lousy mum!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was showing Dec some pictures of fishes online when in flew a flying cockroach and landed on my laptop screen!!

Guess what I did???? I abandon my child, ran out screaming to my mum in law to seek her help to catch that stupid roach. The next thing I heard was Declan’s frigten cries. Mil rushed in and caught that irritating roach which was by now on a bolster right next to Declan. That insect must have flown there and maybe on it’s way there it might have landed on Declan which frigtened him.

I screamed at my mil to bring the roach out and throw it away so that I can go in to comfort my boy. The poor boy was clearly shaken. I shouldn’t have left him behind… I should have carried him and bring him out together…. What kinda mum will leave the child in the lurch when faced with such a situation?? A “chicken” mum! and that’s me……

Late this afternoon, I received a SMS from Phoebe asking me what happened to Declan’s blog. :p hahaha I guess, I’ve been slagging recently. It’s been a week since I last update the blog. Pardon me. Here are the photos of our Underwater World trip which I said I’ll post.

This is him in the Sentosa Bus on our way to Underwater World

At the entrance of the place, there is a “Touch Pool” where you can touch the fishes and other sea animals.

Loads of pictures of the little one looking intensely at the fishes.

The pink colour stuff are jellyfishes. Declan don’t really like the gigantic fishes, he prefers the small little colourful ones. When the gigantic ones came too near, he’ll turn away and say :” scared scared!!” and kept tapping on his own chest. ahhaha timid fellow.

More pics of him staring at the aquarium.

Our tickets actually entitled us to visit the dolphin lagoon too. Unfortunately, it was raining that day and thus we had to give the dolphin lagoon a miss… What a waste. We spent a little time after the visit to grab a bite. I am suppose to share a hotdog with the little one and ended up he took the sausage while I took the bread….

After eating the “separated” hotdog, we savoured on a bag of Famous Amos cookies which I brought along. yum yum!!

I enjoyed the day. I bet the little boy too. He gets to be up close and personal with his favorite fishes. In fact I don’t mind another trip back again some time later.

All 3 generations of men in our household are sick. The baby is sick, the dad is sick, the grandpa is also sick….

Dec’s fever went up to 38.9 degrees on Tuesday night. I was at work, by the time I reached home, this poor chap was already burning and his cheeks were flushed and he couldn’t move about much except sit in the stroller and watched his grandma cook.

I rushed him down to NUH children’s emergency and the nurse administered a “bullet” into his butt. The pill brought the temperature down very quickly. Within 15 mins, his temperature was down to 37+ degress and he was all active again.

He started on his mischevious endeavours. He saw a switch on the wall which resemebled a light switch. He mistook it as a light switch and started clicking it. By the time I realised, it was too late… it was actually an emergency call bell for patient to seek the nurses’ help. He did it a few times and the nurse came running in a few times. :p

That’s him in the fever isolation room.

He’s lucky to get the room pasted with stickers of fishes all over. He loves fish.

After a 3 hours stay, he was sent home with the diagnosis of virus…. and a bill of $70….. ouch…….

Declan’s Favorites

Favorite Public Transport

1)MRT
2)Bus

He loves watching the MRT trains as well as the SBS buses. It’s never difficult to keep him occupied if he’s feeling bored. Just bring him downstairs and let him stand by the railings where he can watch the buses and taxis cruising by.

When we are out and if he ever catches sight of a MRT Train pulling pass, he’ll go :”Mummy see!! “RT” “RT”!!” somehow he shortens the name to RT. These 2 public transport never fails to amuse him and of course, he enjoys riding in them and even playing with them.

I can’t find a mini MRT train model, if not will buy him one.

He even have a little taxi!

Favorite Animals:

1)Fish
2)Bird

He LOVES fish. He’s fascinated with them, be they dead or alive. He looks at the fishes his granny bought from the wet market, he stares at them when they are on TV, he refuses to barge when he pass by an aquarium. He likes eating them too!

More pics of him and his favorite fishes in my next post as I brought him to Underwater World yesterday!

Other than fishes, the other animal which he loves watching are the birds. He’ll say “Bird bird fei liao le” (birds fly away in mandarin) when he sees them fly away.

Favorite Phrase :

1)Bye bye Decan (I didn’t misspell the name, that’s how he pronounces his own name)

I bet he caught this phrase in school during farewell time daily. Nowadays, as he rides his little tricycle at home, he’ll go :”Bye bye Decan!” Quite a funny sight to see him bidding himself farewell.

Favorite Dessert :

1)Ice Cream

What else??!! Remember his grandpa gave him ice cream cone to go with his dinner?? Now, a few times a week, his grandpa will bring him downstairs and the moment they hit the mama store, he’ll go to the ice cream boxes and ask for “ice ceam”.

Passport Photo

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

This is Dec’s first ever passport size photo. My passport is due for renewal, thus, I thought I might as well add Dec into my passport, in case we wanted to bring him on some trips in future.

Taking a proper passport photo is not easy with a wriggly todd. I’m quite worried that he’ll fall off the high stool thus I gotta stand near him and prepare to catch him if he did. His dad gotta play clown, standing beside the photographer, to make him smile and look straight.

A few shots were taken but most of them caught him with his eyes closed…. This is the only usable one. Not too bad but this little chap somehow look worned out in this pic.
