Putting up the Food fight

Naughty mon-mon has now become a Fussy eater. Sometimes he doesnt want to eat his porridge or cereal and just wanna eat up all the fruits.
Or sometimes, he will fuss halfway during a meal and demand a milk feed.
Other times, he gets distracted by the dogs hypnotising his food and he takes forever to finish a meal, playing and banging the table.

And I thought feeding was fun... Hmm..

More out & about.

What a super duper BUSY few weeks before X'mas and New Year.
It's lotsa shopping, shopping, and MORE shopping, friends' weddings, work & family :)

Woke up extra early at 9am on a Sunday (by Daddy's standards anyway) and went grocery shopping.
Baby A was still in his PJs because he just woke up. After grocery-shopping, Daddy & Mummy went for Big Breakfast at MacDonald's while Baby A had his cereal and fruits.

After that, it was the whole afternoon at Takashimaya to do some more Xmas shopping.
Then, we headed to Woodlands to GongGong & PoPo's house!

Aunty Lipeng with Baby A. Both of them share the same birthday, how cool is that!

With my 83 years old Granny :)

PoPo has a Xmas present packed in a box!

Checking out all the X'mas shopping?

Later in the evening, it was dinner at Jack's Place with Baby A's Great-Grandma, Gong Gong, Po Po, Uncle JJ & Junwen.
Baby A looks bored because he could only have porridge, pumpkin, spinach and strawberries with banana custard. HEHE

It is beginning to look alot like X'mas! :)

Out & about

Daddy A, Baby A and Mummy went out to soak up some mood for this festive season. Too bad it was raining and very cold hence we didnt stay out for long!

Went to Dr Simon for Baby A's 6th month growth assessment and had his height, weight and head circumference taken.
I witnessed my Baby sitting up on his own, making his own decisions not to drink plain water by pursing his lips and pushing my hand away...And it suddenly dawned on me: My baby has grown up so much!

I miss Baby A's neonatal days so much, I miss breastfeeding him (I BFed him till he was 5mths old), I miss him being a Baby-baby. *sobs*

From the kitchen

Tried 2 new recipes this week, apart from the usual cereal.

Lentil porridge:
Wash the lentils and rice grains, and grind them up after drying. Can be stored in airtight container for subsequent use.
Lentils are rich in calcium, magnesium and potassium.

Plain rice porridge with Ikan Billis powder:
To make the ikan billis powder, Aunt LY (credit goes to my fav aunt :D) washed and sundried the ikan billis, then she roasted them on a non-stick pan over low heat until they are crisp.
Then, she pounded them until they are a fine powder.

Ikan Billis are high in calcium & protein.

These days, Baby Adam gets cereal for his breakfast, and porridge for dinner.

Huiwen's wedding 29 Nov 2009

Charm, you wanna see my vainpot photos right? HEHE this is for you so you dont vomit hor..
My Day dress for "Jie mei", courtesy of my dearest Charm: an Ivory colored chiffon dress.

My Night dress

With the lovely bride Huiwen

With catwoman Angeline

Angeline & BF Shaun .. Everytime I see her I ask her to demonstrate how to do her Beehive hair SIA style.

After that, Crazy Carol arrived and started her nonsense about requesting 1982 Lafite redwine from the waitress and all her other madness so no more photos already HAHAHA

Gotta wait for Huiwen to update!

P.S. Over dinner just now, Andy suggested that Charmaine & Carol should mix together because both of them are equally crazy, and both bfs also like to play MJ. I think it's very dangerous for the general public if they are together though!

Hari Raya Haji Friday

When we brought Baby A to Baby Hypermart to buy his new Maclaren stroller today, we found out they are having a Weekend sale until 12mn for these 2 days.
And we got a good deal for the new stroller, with a free stroller fan thrown in :)

Daddy A and Baby A love the Maclaren.
Daddy is very happy with his new Sports Car of strollers and I'm equally glad that Andy & I now have a "His" and "Hers" stroller :P

In a nutshell, (Im getting really lazy to type long posts these days), we did these today:
- Bought slow cooker for cooking Baby A's porridge
- Brought Baby A to Baby Hypermart
- Went to my folks' and had dinner with my family
- Tucked Baby A to bed and went out with Hubby to wash the car
- Drove to Jln Kayu for Selegie soya milk to reward ourselves for the hardwork and sweat

On Thursday morning, he called me at work and asked: "Honey you didnt prepare Kaikai's food today, so what should I feed him?"
Me: "Oh I forgot. Can you give him the Parsnip with Sweet potatoes? And choose any fruit to go along"
Andy: "Parsnip.... Ok... Can I give him Pears & strawberries?"
Me: "Ok sure. Thanks Hon!"

Andy is the New Age Dad in every way :)

Storm in a Teacup

Trying to grab the camera

making funny faces is his forte

This is the Cheeky Monmon who brings much laughter into our lives.
No matter how tiring my day has been, seeing these faces melts away all unhappiness instantly.
He has so much love to go around, every single day I say a silent prayer and thank God for blessing us with a happy Bubs.

I cant take a decent photo of him nowadays because he is always wriggling.
Isn't he a handful!

Nearer and nearer

My toes are tingling in anticipation of the long weekend which will be in 2 days' time!
Last day of the work week tomorrow and I will devote all my undivided attention to:
- Hubby
- Baby Adam
- Waxing partner Charmaine
- Huiwen's wedding!

Er ok lah, not undivided attention already, but I am extremely excited and happy! HEHE

P.S. Still pondering what to get for Hubby and Baby Adam for Xmas.
Every weekend also buying things for Baby Adam, as if every weekend is Xmas.. . SO what will the real Xmas presents be??? I also dont know what I want for Xmas.. *scratches head*

Toot Toot

I am really amazed and impressed to learn that the new car has Automatic Rain Sensor function which will automatically activate the wiper when it rains, and it also has a built-in turbo timer.

Me to Andy: Eh dear, the engine is still running even though I switched it off already.
Andy: Yah, that is why you dont need a timer. Everything is automated. It will decide for itself how long it needs to cool down before switching off.
Me *genuinely amazed and grinning*: WOW so brilliant! This car is a Transformer right??
Andy *looking at me blankly*: No, the car is not Transformer. You are Toot Toot. (Blur blur)
Me: 0__O

Apparently, I'm very suaku according to Andy. -__-

A quiet Sunday for 3


Baby Adam went to Changi Terminal 3 for the first time today. He fell asleep while Andy & I had late lunch and woke up just as we were about to bring him to the Organic shop to browse his Toothiepegs and puree.

Before that, we brought him to Baby Hyperstore to check out a new stroller which we intend to buy as a spare - Maclaren Quest Sport.
I'm in love with its fuss-free simplicity and quality.

People who dont know us might think we're having twins! Because we always end up buying 2 of everything - one for each Grandparents' home.

Here's a simple shopping list for the new car:
- Baby rear-view mirror (innovative invention for letting driver see their babies in the carseat)
- Hang toys
- Car polish & wax (Yes, I really do take good care of my belongings!)

By the way, speaking of car polish, this is what happened yesterday...
Me to Andy: Wah Honey, it is only Saturday and the car is dirty already. So fast need to wash.
Andy: Yah, because you drive so slowly that's why the dust settle.

Warning: Highly addictive!

Received an email of these adorable photos of a Baby girl and her dogs. Uber cute!!
I feel happy seeing what a terrific time they are having and it reminds me of our 2 dogs & Baby Adam :)
