Kai's attempt in self-feeding

Question: What is Baby Kai up to??

And why is the greedy dog involved?!

Answer: This is actually Baby Kai in his food adventure.

With some success in self-bottlefeeding, I'm trying to get him to self-feed as well. But as you can see, more food ends up on the table and floor than in his mouth -__-"

Also, he likes to use his hands more than his utensils. Even though I offer utensils to him, he will end up using his hands instead.
Any recommendations for successful dining etiquette??

P.S. You can tell I'm not the fussy freak kinda Mom can't you? :P
I won't fret over my children rolling in the grass in the name of good clean fun, so to speak, and call me insane, but I actually think ingesting some dog fur won't kill em children either.

Baby gate

Havent had time to update for our weekend that just passed. Have we been missed? :P

Remember I said Andy won 3rd prize in 4D? So we brought Baby Kai to Kiddy Palace at Century Square, and everytime we go there, he's greeted by his favourite sales assistant.
He put Baby Kai onto a HUGE motor horse, but Baby Kai doesnt like it!

In the end...

we bought a safety gate for him instead. Seems like it's high time we installed one, cos he is getting around the house really fast!

The other night, I went grocery-shopping after work, and Andy texted me: "Any goodies for me hon?"
This simple question jolted me as I checked my grocery bag - organic oats, baby powder, plain yogurt, fresh milk, sweet potatos, wholemeal bread - EVERYTHING was for Baby Kai and NONE for the parents, ie. US.
This realisation that everything is about Baby Kai now gave me a minor fright.

I wonder if he would buy us $2000-wheelchairs and change our diapers when we are old and incontinent.

We love Baby Kai so much, it's scary. Do all parents feel the same way?

Simple pleasures

Hubby's self-made Banana split!

I've been craving for Banana split the entire week, and we couldn't eat it over the weekend due to our busy schedules and family appointments. Too busy to eat dessert, the irony!
And this week, I'm having classes again.
I raced home after school today to see my babies - big & small, and Hubby gave me a nice surprise - his self-made banana split. Very evil!

I savoured every bit of it - my fav Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia icecream, Hershey's chocolate syrup, and Indian bananas. I swear those are the sweetest species of bananas - even better than Del Montes.
Coming home to a darling hubby giving baby Kai his bedtime bath and preparing dinner for me just makes all the difference.
I wouldn't give the world for simple pleasures like these - things that no amount of money can buy.

I have the best Hubby in the world :)

Baby Noelle's shower & red-egg party

Sunday 18 April 2010: Baby Noelle Goh's full month shower & red egg party
Venue: Grand Copthorne Waterfront

The diaper cake I baked for her:)

The hotel ballroom was huge, and they even provided a baby cot and children cutlery for eating. Thumbs up!

Baby Noelle dressed in Baby Ralph Lauren. All those pretty frocks and pink stuff makes it all worthwhile to have a princess! I soooo want a daughter!

Red egg party

Gong-gong and little Kai

My cousin Calvin & his gf.

This baby suffers no fools

Cousin Yanling and her little princess who just turned 1 last month.

Thank God for my wonderful Mom who helped me with Baby Kai, else Andy & I wouldn't have been able to eat and chat in peace :)

I totally miss Baby Kai's full month shower, where we were showered with so many pressies, so to speak - rompers, shoes, clothes, soft toys. It was overwhelming, but after the party I had ample time to rest at home for several months more, and that feeling of not having to wake up to an alarm clock was great. Baby Kai and I did everything together, except for sacred moments where I took a poop on the toilet bowl.
I wish my cousin Denise and her hubby Peter will enjoy their little bundle of joy in the long journey ahead called parenthood :)

Kate Spade Henry diaper bag

I've always wanted a Kate Spade diaper bag, and when my trusty babyish-looking one gave way, it gave me good excuse to splurge on a new one.
It may appear small, but it's actually quite roomy, with 2 side pockets for milk bottles, and an interior zippered compartment large enough to put my handphone and wallet, and 2 interior patch pockets to put Kai's utensil set and another bottle.

I like the matching changing mat and its functionality without compromising style and looks.
I've yet to come across any designer who does diaper bags that are affordable on the wallet and eye-candy at the same time.
This is The quintessential diaper bag for all fashionista mommies *thumbs up*

Baby Kai is 11 months!

My darling baby is 11 months old today! I can't believe it - I'm in awe. Not in a beaming proud Mommy way, but rather in a perpetually tired, chasing after my rascal and I-cant-believe-I-survived-thus-far kinda way!

and he has a new toy to celebrate this new milestone.

Tearing the toy apart.

New toy, again! Courtesy of the banker from DBS Treasures priority banking :)
Edit to add: Our lucky baby let Andy strike 4D 3rd prize again! 2nd time already. Mommy wants to go Takashimaya baby dept :P

As told by Daddy A...

Andy about my car: You know how to drive car, dont know how to bring car for servicing, know how to scratch the rims, dont know how to bring for repair, know how to own car, dont know how to wash car. You know how to eat, dont know how to cook. Know how to crap, dont know how to clean your ass.

(err.. no prizes for guessing who sent the car for all those right?)

Andy about Baby A: Darling, when you go shopping for Kai's clothes, can help me ask the sales=girl got matching romper or sleepsuit in 300 months? I want to wear matching outfits with Baby. ^__^ *grins*

Sometimes, I dont know whether to laugh or to scratch head about my Hubby. Zzzz

Happy Birthday to my sista Maine!

Charmaine's birthday this year was spent at Crowne Plaza, Airport hotel.
The place was quiet and nice ambience, and good thing was we were allocated a secluded table so we could crack our dirty jokes without anyone sniggering at us LOL.

See what I mean by dirty?

Luckily, our dear gal didnt ask for 25 of these firecrackers!! (else we'll end up like NDP Parade)

Sisters forever!

After the buffet and huge-tits cake.. Look at Meena's tummy @@.. And by the way, Charmaine got a new eye candy from KW - Gucci ltd edition bag, only 80 pcs in Singapore! *cool!*

Good times at ECP and a secret Garden

Took a short drive with my boys to East Coast for MacDonald's breakfast. Yum!

My sticky and sweaty boys

Looking intently at the breakfast. "Daddy, quick gimme already!"
Daddy: "I'm checking for roaches"

Cant resist hotcakes. Drool!

After that, we went to our secret garden - a private place with lush greenery, where the dog is free to run, and a big pond full of terrapins and fish. Just like good old times.

Mavy running and playing like a puppy. Liberty is priceless!

Good times :)
