Hubby's 27th Birthday - Part II

It was Family Day for Birthday Dad, Baby Kai & Mummy :)
We went to Vivo City for a Marche lunch, then Baby Kai went for his first swim session.

Doing warm up exercises

Being plonked into the pool

Having a ball!

After awhile, he decided that it was more fun saying Hi to the people on the other side of the glass

Happy Lil swimmer :D

He kicked and laughed and swirled inside the pool for a good 30mins, after which he was whisked away for massage and he soon fell asleep soundly.

Brthday Dad:

We did some more Xmas shopping today. Our Xmas shopping should almost be complete now!
Toys for Baby Kai - checked
Designer clothes for Baby Kai - checked
More Baby Kai's stuff - checked
L'Occitane bath, body & face pdts from Hubby to me - checked
Zara Men leather bag from me to Hubby - checked
Philips steam iron for Andy's mum - checked
and we are expecting even more more more Xmas presents from my brother Jay & his gf Liping from their HK trip next week. So excited!

The drive home after a long eventful noon with Baby Kai enjoying the breeze.

By the way, Daddy's birthday present this year:

Work Emotion 18-inch bronze sports rims.

Custom made and still being shipped over from Japan (it takes 6-8 weeks for the make-to-order for GTI plus shipping) . Too bad they cant make it in time for Hubby's birthday, but for the price I paid, it'd better be worth the wait!
I still cant understand how guys justify spending thousands of dollars on rims.. I mean, they are RIMS and not even tyres.. and they just sit on the exterior and roll on the roads.. Zzzzz.. I can buy a bag with this money... but anyhow...
Decided to splurge on Hubby this year since he has been a good boy thus far. Hehe..

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!
