Mummy & Baby

I think Baby Kai Kai looks so much like his Daddy.. that's what everyone says, with a few exception who think he looks like me (cos he's got my eyes)

These are my treasured moments: just me and him against the world.

Cant believe he is turning 3mos in 5 days' time, and already he is wearing L size diapers.
His 6-12mos rompers and clothes fit him just nice now... As you can see, his face is almost as big as mine.

This weekend is gonna be a quiet one, with my mum away, Aunt LY going to BKK for shopping with Aunt Connie, and Andy's mum is going back to Indonesia for their durian and birds nest harvest.
I also wanna go and eat free birds nest... But Baby Kai has no passport yet!

Veron, Mum of Three.

I was in the room with Baby Kai when I heard the Cow toy singing "Yee ya yee ya O" so I went out to investigate and this is what I saw....


Back in the room.... the BIGGEST baby:
"Please dont ignore me Mummy"

Awww..... With a face like that, looking all teary-eyed and oh-so-sad, who would have the heart not to carry him??
So yes, I not only picked him up to carry him but I also cuddled, kissed and smothered him till he nearly went breathless.
I love you so much Baby Kai!
(and dont worry, I love you too Mavy & Alice!)

My boys

Daddy A and Baby A are enjoying some male bonding before bedtime.
Andy is giving Adam a sponge bath and getting him changed into his PJs :)

The many HAPPY faces of Adam Tan Tian Kai

This is my HAPPY bubbly Bubs when he wakes up in the mornings. He has so much zest for life and is always so happy to greet the start of a new day that it puts us lazy adults to shame Hahaha

"Good morning folks!" (see how he has deviated from his pillow Hahaha)

Water baby getting ready for his morning "swims"

After his swim in the tub, here he is going for walkies with the doggies in his new uber cool stroller :D
'cept in the photos, the dogs are nowhere to be seen because they cant wait for slowpoke Mummy to be done taking photos and have ran off on their adventures Haha

Combi Miracle Turn is really a dream to handle... I cant love it enough!
The parent-facing is brilliant, because babies feel more secure being able to see their parents.
See how much Adam is enjoying his walkies? Hehehehe

Everyday I thank God Almighty for blessing us with a healthy, cherubic baby.
Baby Adam is so happy. Happy with life, happy with the littlest things.
This teaches us - his parents - to appreciate the small things in life.
And oh, dont forget to slow down and smell the roses!

Old Macdonald has an irresistable cowboy!

Went to the post office today to pick up my parcel from my online purchases.
I bought some Old Navy clothes and Nuby toy for Baby Adam teeheehe

Every animal will sing a different sound.. Feel like collecting all :P

Old Macdonald has a farm
Yee ya yee ya O
And on his farm he has a Cow
Yee ya yee ya O
And a Moo Moo here, and a Moo Moo there
Here Moo there Moo everywhere Moo Moo

He is pictured - Practicing his Sit. He was fixated on his new Nuby Ol Macdonald singing Farm Cow.. "moo moo here and a moo moo there"

"Hello Moo-mmy!"

Then Baby A kicked his new cow and at the same time he lost balance.... LOL!! Though he seemed very pleased with himself Hahaha Mr Silly...

And he entertained himself by staring at the ceiling and babbling... Hehe!

P.S. The weather is so HOT in Singapore that I'm tempted to let Baby A go full monty at home.. But Andy's mum objected so going sleeveless with only a diaper is not bad either.
Now he spends 24/7 in air-con room and gets his bedtime sponge-baths before bed :)

Going back to Gong-gong and Popo's house

Baby Adam is all dressed up, and looking very happy to go out :)
Though we are only going back to my parents' and nothing adventurous Hahaha my silly boy...
Thankyou Uncle Junwen for the carseat!

Did you know: It is illegal for children under the age of 8 to travel in a car in Singapore without any carseat.. so it is definitely worth investing in a good one.

But then again, all baby stuff are so expensive, what with the cool designs and lots of "added features" nowadays.. like a carseat isnt just a carseat.. it can also function as a baby carrier (albeit a heavy one!) or can fix onto stroller for infants (Quinny).
So for first-time parents like Andy & myself, we'll end up paying more for stuff which will eventually become white elephants.

Andy: Honey you're looking at strollers again! Do they upload new strollers every minute?
Me: Tsk.... I still cant make up my mind mah...
Andy: You make the whole affair seem like you're eyeing the stock market. Need to always go see meh? Then keep refreshing the page... *rolls eyes*

Dohhh.... What to do? Im torn between Combi or Maclaren... Looks vs function.
Maclaren looks super ugly lor but when I checked reviews on mummy forums most votes went for Maclaren. But then I saw Adrian Pang using Combi for the little baby girl in Nanny Daddy (Nai-pa 100%... there is a rerun of the show every weekend 4.30pm-6.30pm) I cant help but fall in love with my original love all over again...

Maybe I should buy both! Maclaren all-terrain 3-wheeler for our sporty outings to the beach or dog trainings and the chic Combi for shopping trips.

And just to share:
Fox Baby is having storewide halfpriced on all items at Marina Square.. lotsa baby jeans, pants, tees and Disney rompers.
BabyGAP was having 50% off at Vivo City outlet.. the Wisma one only 10-20% off 2nd item onwards...

Okays, gotta go sell my kidney now... Bye bye & hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as we did ours! :)

Quiet Monday

It's a quiet Monday for us today.
The dogs are well behaved. I even did a round of Obedience with Mavy and he actually remembers all his commands and did a pretty darn good Recall, if I may say so myself.
I cant wait to get back to training with Mavy again.

Baby Adam is a mellow fellow today too, thank goodness. Because if he werent, I wont have the energy to deal with him either.. I am still suffering the repercussions of our insane weekend, and went about the whole day doing things in half steam. zzzzZZzz

He is a good boy, entertaining himself on his Disney play gym.

Crazy Sunday

Woke up at 6.45am and was out of the house by 8.30am, with a huge Neverfull filled with baby essentials and a sleepy Kai Kai in tow.
Poor baby but no choice cos our weekends are a mad rush everywhere with everyone wanting a piece of our 牛仔 (Cowboy)!

First it was to my house to visit my Grandma and Aunt LY (great-grandmother and grand aunt).
Then it was back home for Cowboy to rest because he had dinner appointment with his other great-grandma (Andy's grandmother).

[ But in between so many things happened.
First, Andy's Dad called to say Alice squeezed through our gate and ran away. Then he went to find her with Mavy the kaypo tagging along.
And then fatefully, Mavy was excited when he saw our Australian uncle neighbour who was incidentally, very friendly and wanted to play with him but didnt know how strong Mavy is so when Mavy jumped on that poor old man who has had a CABG (Coronary Artery Bypass Graft) done, that really scared the SHIT out of him.
Then we got home and went over to his house to apologise.
But again, before reaching home we nearly got into an accident which would have flung our Cowboy from the back towards the windscreen had I not been breastfeeding him at the backseat because of the heavy traffic and some Muther-#$*%$* was weaving in and out of lanes.
I was really scared out of my wits and shudder to think what might have happened. I mean, there's really no saying "should have" or "what if" because accidents are accidents and if it's meant to happen it will happen. Right? And it's not like we didnt observe road safety to begin with... Sigh... what a scare. And what a DRAMA MAMA chain of events! ]

By 9pm I'm totally FLAT... . .. zzzzZZZzz.
Maybe next week we should all order pizza home delivery and have ALL the people who want to see Kai Kai, come to see Kai Kai. Yeah I think that would be a great idea.

牛仔很忙! (Cowboy is very busy!)

Happy Saturday!

I'm really excited that the weekend is finally here!
What a busssyyyy week for us leh... with Baby A and spending the whole week keeping our appointments. Met our financial planner twice lor!
But finally we settled our investments and Baby A's insurance plans. (Heaves a huge sigh of relief!)

So today, being Saturday, Andy was a good Daddy who woke up early to bathe Baby A and we left him in Andy's mum's care while we went Vivo City (again) for shopping.
I'm really thankful to have sucha wonderful MIL who is competent in caring for Baby A and best of all she doesnt mind and in fact enjoys spending time with him.
Aint I lucky to have my Mum, Andy's mum and Aunt LY to help me out with our Little Rascal :) Time to plan for Princess Valentina? muaahahahaha~ just kidding

Okays back to shopping at Vivo City.. Yes I love going to Vivo City because it's so family-friendly (read: Many baby stores :P )
Bought some MORE BabyGAP tees and pants for Baby A again, and bought some clothes for us too.

This is my favourite of today's shopping loot! :

Ultimate Frisbee Champ

Yes, without a doubt my baby will grow up to be Ultimate Frisbee & Dogsports trainer like his Mummy and Daddy haha

Back to the topic...

This is Baby A dressed up for dinner with Ah Gong and Ah Ma.

Looking Ah Beng in his red color Fah-lah-li. Manual transmission somemore - by his parents. Ahem.

The precious weekend just came and went

Bought some fabric books for our precious Kai Kai which has Discovery Farm, 123 ABC and Zoo animals, and also a Baby Einstein teething ring.

When we got home, Andy & I read the books to our little one and though he didnt understand, he was captivated by the bright colors and pictures.

We also finally collected his Calligraphy brush from KKH...

It has his Chinese name and birthdate engraved on it, as well as two verses which say:
which means "The fabled roc flies ten thousand miles" or in other words, "one's future is brilliant"

Okays, enough of the are some updates about Adam's parents... ahem..

Andy plans to drive up to KL one of these weekends.
He intends to take our Little Red Turbo Car for her last roadtrip and burn some tyres on the Sepang tracks before we buy a new car.
This is another sign that we are moving on to the next chapter of our lives. We need a more baby-friendly car because LRTC has rock-hard suspensions which send the car bouncing and going "ging gong ging gong" even when she goes over the slightest tar strips and sends Baby Adam's milk purging out of his mouth and it drives me insane to see my baby throwing up.

But but, we havent decided which car to buy yet and we also need to plan which weekend to go on the road trip, which we are taking forever to do... so... until then....

And also, I didnt ask for it, but Andy has allowed me to be a SAHM!
The other night we were talking about Adam's addiction to my breast and how precious he is to us.
Actually the conversation went like this:
Andy: Honey, look how much he wants to latch on. How can you bear to deny him of your breasts?
Me: But he just took 90ml of breast milk from the bottle and he just wants to latch on for comfort... What will happen when I go back to work? Your mum will die.
Andy: Then you just take no pay leave and stay at home and look after him lor... I will give you allowance what. And your part of housing loan, I pay lor... Ok?

WOW me so happy to hear those words from my Hubby leh! hehehe
I'm practically floating and I immediately have mental images of me and Adam doing so many fun things together, exploring his growing up milestones and of me sending Andy to work and fetching him home from work.
The best part is, I dont have to do housework or cook meals because Andy's mum will be doing that.
Then she will have more free time to do her stuff too - like hanging out with her market aunty friends and chatting on the phone every noon.
The housework will be done, every member of the family fed, and Adam will have his mummy to take care of him. Isnt that a brilliant plan? HEHEHE :)

Baby Adam at Play

Baby Adam amusing himself with his musical bears. I'm glad the bears entertained him for a good one hour so I could EBM and do some stuff like practice my photo-taking skills!
He batted the bears happily and when they moved, he coo-ed and seemed to be mighty pleased with himself!

It's the Aussino sales.. and I can smell the weekend drawing closer and closer.
It's gonna be another of those busy weekends for us, shuttling to the grandparents' place and doing some shopping.
Things to do:
- Buy soft books for Adam
- Toys for Adam
- Picture cards to stick on the wall beside his cot
- Buy new sheets for Adam and us
- Go to Vivo City to check out Fox Baby, GAP and Mothercare and do even more shopping
- Meet our insurance agent to work out an insurance & savings plan for Adam

Very busy indeed!!

Baby Adam at Bath time

Hanging on a thread

My happy bubs enjoys his bath time. He is always happy and eager to be in water. In awhile more when he is able to sit up with support, he's gonna have sucha wild time splashing with his California Baby bubble bath and bath toys :D

Mr Silly

My Mum's cat Mango. Back at my Mum's yesterday.

This is my 牛仔 greeting us in the morning with his chirpy smiles and gurgles and coos.
It is only 7am.. the room is still relatively dark and we're still half asleep. zzzzzZZZ..
In this photo he is swatting his hands everywhere (that blur in the face is actually his hand waving)

He makes an "O" with his mouth whenever he pees.

Wake up folks! Good morning! Beautiful morning!

Mr Silly.

I've taken out my rusty Canon DSLR to practice again.
Hopefully I can take more nice photos of my 牛仔!

Our weekend

Andy booked us a Couple Spa appointment on Saturday.
Not bad, my Hubby is so sweet :)

I did a postnatal treatment which included slimming thermal wrap and postnatal herbal massage. Shiok!

I enjoyed the massage so much that I fell asleep!
I've booked a Diamond and Gold facial for myself the next time I go. Hee!

After that, we adjourned to Manpuku at Tampines One for our lunch.
It's like a Jap version of Marche... but nothing special. Dont think we will go back there again even though the ambience is quite nice.
It was my treat to Andy for being so sweet to me, planning our couple's weekend and stuff :)

As usual our Sundays have been family-centred and very very busy because Sundays are also Andy's mum's "off days" from taking care of Adam and doing housework so Andy & I have to do everything ourselves.
Of course we aint complainin' since we enjoy taking care of Adam so much. Andy is doing a great job of bathing our little soldier and I'm so proud of him :)

We then brought Adam to both his great-grandmothers' places.
My poor baby has begun to recognise faces and places therefore he was crying and crying from all the unfamiliar sights.
I tried everything but could barely pacify him. He was tired but couldnt go to sleep but just kept on crying and it broke my heart to pieces.
I just wanted to hold him and comfort him the whole time and sing nursery rhymes to him.

Speaking of nursery ryhmes, I've mastered all the songs playing on his musical rocker so everytime he is on the rocker, I will fill in the lyrics to the tunes.
*Proud of myself* Hahahah

This is our favourite!

Five little ducks went out one day
Over the hills and far away
Mother duck said "Quack Quack Quack Quack"
But only four little ducks came back

... (continue till none of the ducks came back
tee hee)

Guess where the Little Duckies went off to?

Adam's bath tub!

Bath toys from Chicco made of a special kind of fabric which will stay afloat so the toys are actually soft and still floatable :)
I bought them online and dont see them in stores.

He also has Froggies bath toys but they are still hibernating in his cupboard.
