My little darling boy is very alert on his surrounding and he learn fast from us. Eg. the way we sit, walk and make funny faces and sound as well how we eat on the dining table. He wants to use adult spoon and not his own spoon and feed himself.

He loves soup and vegetables but not meat since he was on solid food ... just like mommy :). When see mommy on nice clothing he will stick to mommy, sense that mommy is going out. He will ask us to put on his shoes when he wants to go KAI KAI.

His favorite dancing movement are turning around with his hand on top his head like ballerina and moving his both legs left and right. Love Happy Birthday song and will clap his hands and rhyme along.

During bathtime, he loves to scoop a cup of water and pour it to the next pail or even into the toilet bowl. When comes to bedtime, still wanna mommy to carry him and sing him to sleep, the minute put him down on the bed he will stay awake and play on the bed, really have to put him to sleep soundly before laying him down on the bed ... it's tiring. Always wanna to stick to mommy when he sleeps, he can sense when mommy is away by his side especially early in the morning where mommy going to work. He will cry and call MA MA MA when he sense mommy not by his side on the bed ... cute little boy :)

Joshua loves to run around the house and playing with things that not meant for him. The minute you said NO Joshua automatically he will do it and difficult to stop him. When mommy say ROTAN, he will look at mommy and playing, either give mommy a smile or run away hahahaha ... learned this from mommy, daddy said :)

Happy 18 months sweetheart, Daddy and Mommy love you much.

New Toy for me and hubby

Went to PC fair last Sunday and at last we managed to get a camera for myself and a camcorder for hubby ... both from SONY ... it was a great offer with many free gifts :)

Joshua is feeling unwell

Was back home from work, noticed Joshua's voice changed and his lips was reddish. Suspected that he is not feeling well. Put him to bed as usual at 8.00pm and he woke up at 11.30pm ++ and cried and wanna to play at the hall. His lips was really red and quickly gave him a cup of water. He refused to drink and daddy has to carry him in front of the fridge to play with while mommy trying hard to feed him.

Took him to the paed the next morning, his lower lip was bleeding when mommy cleaned his face with a wet hankerchief. Naughty mommy not detail enough to notice that his lip crack and accidently wiped too hard at his lip and caused bleeding. He cried and it was really painful .. poor boy.

Dr. said there is fungus infection at his upper lip and there is slight redness at his throat. This might due to hygiene causes eg. the nipple not properly sterilized, or Joshua put dirty stuffs in his mouth or due to milk clog.

He was given a throat liquid medicine and a gel to be applied on his lips and the fungus area. Poor little boy.
Mommies please ensure that your kids' hands are cleaned at all times and also the feeding bottles.

Get well soon Joshua. Love you darling .. muack muack :)

Joshua gets to go out for an evening walk at mommy's hometown, he will grab on to his shoes when mommy say KAI KAI :) trying to put on the shoes himself and will make a big fuss when he can't ... my little cheeky boy.

MA MA

My darling boy is 15 months and 3 weeks, I am so proud of him, he is calling MA MA ... I have been waiting for so long to hear this from him. Tears and joy for me :). Recalling a year back, he was just a tiny baby laying on my arm and now watching him sleeping beside me everynight so contented to see him growing healthy each day with all his new found skills that make me laugh and mad. He is a big boy now ... but mommy still carry and pat him and sing him to sleep everynight coz I told myself ... if I don't appreciate this moment while I can, I will miss it.
Joshua has 11 teeths and he loves to bite a lot, guess his gum is itchy. He starts to hold on his milk bottle when is about 15 months. He knows to hold but taking advantage to be served hihi ... he will only hold when mommy is around; he refused to hold on to his bottle and break out to tears when babysitter ask him to hold hihi .. really cutie pie boy.
He is a real hyperactive boy, running up and down the whole house making mommy tired of chasing him. When you try to stop him, he will shout out loud and burst out to tears .... and everyone will just give in to him. He is only afraid of mommy and no one can control him :0) the power of mommy hihi :)

Playtime


Wow .. my precious boy is 14 months now, started to walk at the age of 12 months, he loved to walk around the house and will reach everything in the house and mess up the house. Proud to see my boy learning to walk, but this is tiring stage where mommy has to follow him everywhere around the house. Daddy can't even stand Joshua .. coz really tiring ....

He still get at least 14 hours sleep a day and his bedtime will be latest 8pm. There isn't any improvement during meal time, refuses to eat and will throw out the porridge the minute mommy feed him ... got to find all means to make him eat his porridge.

Shouting here and there whenever he wants a thing, love to play with his saliva and make all sorts of cheeky funny faces just to make you happy. When mommy is angry, he knows, will give mommy a big hug and kiss mommy ... cunning boy huh!

Started Joshua with his 1st brushing lesson a week ago, he was happy playing with his toothbrush and enjoyed it very much; twice daily during bathtime.

Happy 1 year old sweetheart!


My precious is 1 year now, he has turned to a big boy from a small tiny baby. Time flies, he got his own characters; throwing temper, shouting at you, scratch and even bite you when you don't let him do the things that he wants.

He is now used to sleep with daddy & mommy everynight, refused to sleep in his cot. He got 5 little teeths, though only 5 teeths at the age of 1, he can really give you a sharp bite till bleed if he get hold on you especially when he got excited. He still stick to his usual bedtime at 7.30pm latest by 8.00pm and get at least 15 hours of sleep a day. This is really good for his brain development.

At the age of 1, Joshua still refuse to hold on to his own milk bottle, he would rather not to drink his milk if mommy and daddy asked him to hold his own bottle ... sigh, this little cheeky guy. He is really the entertainer to mommy and daddy. A hard work at office, back to home, his sweet smile will just melt your heart.

Love you always Joshua boy.

Happy 1st Birthday to you.

Happy Fathers' Day


Time flies, and this year daddy celebrated his 2nd Fathers' day. Just a simple celebration, dinner with 4 families and celebrated with 7 daddies at mommy's hometown.

1st time on plane to Singapore


Joshua had his 1st Birthday celebration on June 6th, 2009. Daddy will be on business trip to Singapore on June 10th and decided to take Mommy and Joshua along coz daddy wanna to be with Joshua on his birthday 11th June. Therefore, Joshua and Mommy followed daddy to Singapore. At first, Mommy was very anxious coz mommy will be taking care of Joshua alone in Singapore and we had a great trip in Singapore though it was really tiring for Mommy.

Joshua enjoyed his trip on plane, he was so curious on the new surrounding in the airport and on the plane. Climbing up and down and can't sit still on the plane, but he slept the way back to KL. Gosh! at last mommy got a chance to rest and relax.

My 1st Fondant Cake


I did it! This is my first fondant cake, blueberry chocolate cake; specially for Joshua's 1st Birthday.

Happy 1st Birthday Joshua Boy




My darling boy celebrated his first Birthday with Daddy Mommy and all his relatives. Had a buffet dinner at home, Joshua was so happy the moment he saw his Mickey Mouse fondant cake made by Mommy. He loved to cut on his cake, holding the knife and kept cutting his cake with his sweet cheeky smile.

More updates .. stay tune :)

1st Mothers' Day Celebration


Yeah! This is the first time I celebrated Mother's Day. Last year Joshua was still in mummy's womb, time flies thinking back what I did for last year Mother's Day. Just a normal celebration, took my mom for breakfast at Old Town White Coffee and shopped till noon at Jusco. Dinner with my mum's family, there are 8 mummies celebrating!

Got a box of chocolate and a stalk of flower from Joshua (hubby bought it), so thoughtful. Happy to celebrate Mother's Day with Joshua, my mom and the rest of the mummies in my family.

More to come!

Happy 11 Months


Joshua turned to 11 months today. He is little cheeky fellow, he will give you a big smile whenever he sees you or even you scold him. Throwing temper is his new talent, took him to One Utama Moms Care last Friday and I was shocked when he screamed the moment I carried him away from the toys department. Wow, I never thought that he would throw temper at this age.

Development; learning to walk and crawling fast and wants to climb up all the time. Have to put 100% attention on him .. tiring. Not afraid of strangers, he will want others to carry him after a warm up session even sometimes don't want mummy to carry him ... naughty boy! He cried once very loud when his grandpa shouted at him said pain when he pinched his grandpa. He kept crying and I have to sooth him down by walking him around the porch and distracting him attention to make him stop crying - 1st time. Starting to understand what mommy talk to him, and will use his hands to show WHERE WHERE WHERE, love to paly hide and seek game - he will hide his toys under a pillow and ask start to search for it. There is a symptom of separation anxiety when mommy leave for work, stop crying when babysitter distract him with something.

Food preferences; he loves potatoes (the most), carrots, tomatoes, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, french beans etc (I should say, he is a vegetarian, hihi) coz he don't like to have fish or chicken porridge. He will throw out the porridge with fish or chicken taste, got to find a way to make him to accept fish and chicken porridge.
Counting down for his FIRST BIRTHDAY :)

Mother's Day


The history of Mother's Day is centuries old and goes back to the times of ancient Greeks, who held festivities to honor Rhea, the mother of the gods. The early Christians celebrated the Mother's festival on the fourth Sunday of Lent to honor Mary, the mother of Christ. Interestingly, later on a religious order stretched the holiday to include all mothers, and named it as the Mothering Sunday. The English colonists settled in America discontinued the tradition of Mothering Sunday because of lack of time. In 1872 Julia Ward Howe organized a day for mothers dedicated to peace. It is a landmark in the history of Mother's Day.

In 1907, Anna M. Jarvis (1864-1948), a Philadelphia schoolteacher, began a movement to set up a national Mother's Day in honor of her mother, Ann Maria Reeves Jarvis. She solicited the help of hundreds of legislators and prominent businessmen to create a special day to honor mothers. The first Mother's Day observance was a church service honoring Anna's mother. Anna handed out her mother's favorite flowers, the white incarnations, on the occasion as they represent sweetness, purity, and patience. Anna's hard work finally paid off in the year 1914, when President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the second Sunday in May as a national holiday in honor of mothers.

Slowly and gradually the Mother's day became very popular and gift giving activity increased. All this commercialization of the Mother's day infuriated Anna as she believed that the day's sentiment was being sacrificed at the expense of greed and profit.
Regardless of Jarvis's worries, Mother's Day has flourished in the United States. Actually, the second Sunday of May has become the most popular day of the year. Although Anna may not be with us but the Mother's day lives on and has spread to various countries of the world. Many countries throughout the world celebrate Mother's Day at various times during the year, but some such as Denmark, Finland, Italy, Turkey, Australia, and Belgium also celebrate Mother's Day on the second Sunday of May.

Happy Mother's Day to all mummies out there!

Joshua's Toys Collection


Wow ... it was really fruitful from the warehouse I went. Got many nice toys for my boy, branded lol ... but it was packed and queued for 2 hours plus just to pay for the bill. Anyhow, happy to see my son playing with the toys. Tigger the tumbling tiger really gave fun for my boy, at first Joshua will cry when Tigger tumble around with music along but I kept explaining to him that it is just a toy and he calm down. The singing Barney too frigthen him coz of the singing noise ... hihi ... Barbie is for my nieces. Spent about RM300 for all these collection. Waiting for the coming warehouse sales. Hooray!

Dinner for Hubby


At last, my hubby got a taste of my cooking after 3 years ... hihi .. I did it! I can't imagine that I managed to cook for my husband for 3 days .. :) On the first day, Ma Yau fish + onion with eggs + tung fan with carrot and japanese cucumber. 2nd day, steam salt chicken + oat prawns + poli vegetable and ABC soup. Didn't managed to take the 3rd day dishes .. sigh ... had steam pork, herbs soup and poli vege again .. :0) It was so interesting to cook for my love ones though tired after working.

Food for Joshua

Joshua has been taking solid food for about 2 months and I am really out of idea what to cook for him, been cracking my head and buying Kiddy cooking book to get new ideas. I can't imagine that I can cook now and wake up early in the morning to prepare Joshua's porridge before leaving for work. Though it is tiring but am feel proud of it. Even my family members said motherhood really changed me so much .. hihi

Happy 10 months Joshua



Joshua is 45 weeks now and he has changed so much from a little tiny quiet baby to a hyperactive baby. He can crawl well and love to go after everything than he could reach and if you take it away from him he will yelled at you and stare at you .. hihi he is really cutie cute. You don't have to worry whether he is hungry anymore coz he will tell you when he wants his milk ... NEN NEN... NEN NEN .. means he wants his milk ... and he will cry out loud when he wants it.

Started teething when he was 36 weeks and now his upper central incisor start to teeth and this time he is very uncomfortable and he can't sleep well. He will wake up every 4 hours for milk without fail where last time he will sleep till the morning for his next feed. So, do mummy cant't get a good sleep :). Bedtime routine; mommy will put Joshua to bed at 7.30pm and we will play on the bed till Joshua fell asleep. Joshua loves to give mommy a bite every night before going to bed, and it is really painful ...

New skill found .. throwing temper :) whenever he don't like something he will use his both hands to hit on whatever he can reach to show that don't mess up with me hihi. Mommy taught him to Gong Xi Gong Xi only once and when mommy said Joshua Gong Xi Gong Xi mommy .. he will give a sweet smile then Gong Xi Gong Xi and put his two hands into his mouth ... he is the joker in the family now and mommy have to step down. Not to miss, I have no idea who thought him to make TAK TAK sound and surprised me when he made such sound. He loves to make TAK TAK sound and play with his saliva.

Started Joshua with fish porridge when he was 10 months, he don't like to have fish porridge and will throw out whenever I feed him with that guess he had too much of fish when he was in mommy's tummy :0). He loves potatoes, carrot, sweet corn, spinach, big onion and pumpkin porridge very much especially potatoes. As for fruits, he tried apple, banana, and jambu air batu.

Til now, he doesn't show any separation anxiety when mommy leave him .. mommy felt quite sad but on the other hand, this would be a good thing for me coz I can leave him with someone without any worries. But there is time when he only wants mommy to carry him, he will burst out when you try to carry him away from mommy ... yeah!

Mommy and daddy are proud of you little precious Joshua boy. Happy 10 months old!

Happy 9 months Joshua

Time flies and my precious boy is now 9 months old; 9 months ago he was a small tiny baby boy ... smile when he sees mummy and daddy, cry when he is hungry and sleep when he is tired. And now he is a hyperactive baby and his new skill found; love to stand alone without any support.

He do not like to be carried and prefer to be left alone on the floor; he will give you a big smile when you put him alone on the floor to play. Crawling here and there and make a quick stand up, his hands will kept beating on anything he can reach off. After a hard day of work, he will just melt your heart with his sweet smile.

Besides love to stand up without any support, he loves to pull anyone's hair and scratch our faces .. really painful .. ouch. Yesterday Joshua scratched mummy's face and pulled mummy's hair, and I raised my voice a bit and said NO NO NO Joshua, guess what happened? He cried and all his tears running down his face but still refused to let go of my hairs ... sigh. Have to distract him with something to stop him from crying. When mummy is not around with him during the day, he used to pull and scratch the nanny's hair, and nanny just laughed at him .. that gave him a signal that we love him to pull and scratch our hair.

Fever


Joshua had his pneumococcal jab on last Wednesday, he was having flu and I told my husband that is it not recommended to let Joshua to have jab when he is feeling ill. Well, Joshua had high fever on the night itself, this is the very first time that Joshua had fever after the jab.

His whole body was so hot especially his hands and legs, he was not his usual self, he was cranky and didn't have a good sleep. His fever was on and off and his running nose got worst, boiled him CHAT SENG CHAR to ease his fever. His fever was gone on the third day but 5 days later his fever came back ... 38.2 .. I drove back from office to send him to the paed. He is on medication again, poor boy.

Marriage are made in Heaven

A successful marriage depends on two things; finding the right person and being the right person. Marriage is not just coming together of two individuals, there is much more to it. To sustain a marriage it is important that there is effort from both sides than only a marriage can carry on. Marriage is like a good recipe whose main ingredients are love, commitment, understanding, concern and togetherness.

"A happy marriage is a long conversation which always seem too short." Love him or her the way he or she is and not the way you want him or her to be. "Success in marriage does not come merely through finding the right mate, but through being the right mate."
Have you found your right soul or mate?

Cousin Gathering


This is the very first cousin gathering we had on the 12th day of CNY. My cousin sis .. Stephy was the organizer, our initial plan; dinner at Shabu Shabu, SS2 at 7.00pm. My brother was the first to arrive and told me that there isn't any restaurant named Shabu Shabu, oh oh ... Ah Phoon ... My bro, hubby and me waited at a mamak stall for the rest to arrive, had chicken burger special as our starter while waiting for them.

My brother suggested to have our dinner at Tai Thong Restaurant, SS2, and as usual, got to wait for the late comers to arrive ... and the organizer was the last to arrive. We really enjoyed this dinner and more to come. Had luxury dinner and later was our dessert session at KTZ. Hmm... guess our next gathering would be either movie session or buffet .. and this time we will make it a point the late comer will have to take care the bill ... tq in advance. Hi hi :)

Little Precious 8 months (36 weeks)

Joshua is 8 months old today, his new found skill is MA MA .. PA PA. He will call MA MA when he is in his playpen where he wants to be carried and when he is hungry. PA PA when he wants to play with daddy.

He is really mischievous, call PAPA and when daddy carry him he will turn to mummy. Cheeky little guy. Another 4 months to his first birthday. Me and my hubby are planning for his big day and got to start with our plan.

Saturday, February 07, 2009

MA MA ...

Joshua was crying at about 7.05am (070209), quickly I asked my hubby to make him milk, his last feed was at 3.15am. I don't attend to him when he is crying for his milk coz once he hear my voice calling him "Joshua" he will start to cry louder. My husband said he is pampered by me. Well, this is Mother Nature.

But, he is crying louder and I walked towards his cot and found that his head was trapped in between his playpen net and the mattress. I was shocked but in my heart was laughing coz my son really a very sound sleeper. He used to make a 360 degree turn in his playpen throughout the whole night. I carried him out from his playpen and put him back to sleep properly, but he cried, and I carried him up and he gave me surprise, he called "MA MA" clearly. I was so so happy to hear my precious boy called me "MAMA" though some might say he just simply babbles but to me... means a lot ...MUMMY LOVE YOU JOSHUA BOY.

When my hubby came in with the milk, I told him about it but he was jealous and said .. happy ler you ... hi hi... guess he must be mad with me coz all these while my hubby has been teaching Joshua to say Pa Pa , Da Da, Di Di hihi ... I love you lou kong.

Drypers Contest

Finally, mummy waited for the best offer for Drypers selling at RM32.88 at Giant, Kota Damansara. I have a dozen of MP and half a dozen of Drypers with me ... mummy said can last til I am 2 years old.

Mummy really enjoyed shopping especially getting good deal for my stuffs, thank you to my daddy coz he is the payer... hihi. Another contest for mummy, and hope this round mummy will be one of the winner like she won for the New Year Bonanza organized by MP. Simple and easy contest, just need to answer 2 simple questions and post the contest form ... that's all.

Rice Cereal for Joshua

At last my parents found an Indian shop that provide grinding services and have a kilo of rice grind as Joshua rice cereal instead of giving him nestle cereal; caused heatiness.

Started to feed Joshua with this solid food on the 8th day of CNY, he didn't really enjoyed it, he might not used to the taste and texture. He kept pushing his head away from the spoon when my mum was trying to feed him. After 3 days of trying it, he started enjoying it. What a relief to me coz I thought he might not like it coz my mum said I started too late on this. Yummy .. Joshua enjoying his rice cereal.

Papaw Ointment


Papaw or Papaya we all know as a delicious fruit but the beneficial qualities of Papaw greatly aid the skin. Lucas Papaw Ointment cleans away infectious wastes and helps to clean wounds.

This is really a great product, I bought this from TBL and used it on my son, say no more to bruises. It fits nicely in any handbags and very useful for bites and cuts even as lipbalm and to moisturise dry/eczema skin.

CNY 2009

Eve of CNY, reunion dinner with daddy's family dinner but Joshua has to be seated in his Exersaucer ... well next year CNY I will be joining in for the reunion dinner. After dinner, went to mummy's relatives house at USJ. Joshua slept quite late today, his usual bedtime is 7.30pm.

It is first day of CNY ... we are in the year of OX. Joshua woke up at 8.30am, bathed him and put him into his new yellow samfu. Bought him 2 sets of samfu, both yellow coz daddy said this year is the year of OX, and OX loved to go after red ... hihi. Wow ... Moo Moo angpow from daddy and mummy ... Joshua first angpow.



We started our day with breakfast and took family photos, then to daddy's grandma house at Bangsar and our last stop was at daddy's uncle house. Little Joshua was sleepy and we went back to home sweet home for him to have a rest.



Joshua enjoyed so much and he is a cheeky and playful boy, he does not choose any particular person to carry him, after a warm up session he will let anyone to carry him.

2nd day of CNY, went to grandparents' house at Serdang and on the 3rd day went back to mummy's hometown. On the 5th day of CNY, there was Lion dance performance in mummy's house. Joshua was not afraid of the Lion dance and the loud noise by the drums even the firecrackers. I was carrying Joshua and covered his ears, to my surprised he fell asleep on my shoulder though in such noisy environment. Not a bad CNY for Joshua, for his 1st CNY, he is able to witness Lion dance at mummy's hometown.

Mosquito Repellent

Poor boy ... Joshua really has a very sensitive skin, a bite from mosquitoes there will be bruises and extremely large swelling at the bitten area.

I am heartache to look at the bruises and swelling, thinking how can I keep Joshua away from mosquitoes attack. What a lucky day for me, I found a battery operated device which act as a mosquitoes repellent @ RM16.90. This device release a wave sound that keep Joshua safe from mosquitoes about 1 - 3m far.

Mummies out there, you might want to try it.

3D Hands & Feet Sculpture



A unique way to preserve moments of my little gem.

After 6 weeks of waiting, finally I got my precious 3D hands and feets. Cute and adorable.

Solid Food

Joshua love to put everything into his mouth to chew ... guess his gum must be itchy. Decided to let him to chew on food rather than toys, teether etc to ease his itchiness.

My husband and I went to shop for his very first solid food - Heinz Farley's Rusks. Wanted to start him with this Farley's Rusks the next day but his cheek was so reddish and I am afraid that his body is heaty, therefore, only gave him his very first bite on Jan 08, 2009.



To my surprise he don't like the taste of it and kept pushing my hand away when I tried to feed him. He seems not enjoying it much, and guess he still prefer to bite on his teether and toys. Joshua with his first bite of Farley's Rusks ...

Music Class

11th Jan 2009 ... Joshua first music lesson. I was worried that he might not enjoy it .. gosh .. what a relief .. he enjoyed himself and was looking around the new environment with many babies around him. He was the youngest and the only baby boy in the Babies class.

The session started with a warm up session where he was given a ball to roll, kick, push, bounce and throw around with "THIS IS THE WAY" .. song accompanied by me. He was quiet at the beginging but after a warm up session he started to gugugaga when see something new to him and responsed actively to all activities.

After lesson, took him to The Curve for the very first time. Guess he was too tired and he slept in his stroller, poor daddy have to keep an eye on him while mummy do her shopping at Daiso.

Wow ... time flies, Joshua second music class. My precious son woke up as early as 7am ..I should say his routine .. feed and bathed him. Tried to put him to bed to have a short nap before sending him to his class, but he refused to sleep though he is sleepy. At class, he was blur coz he was tired and sleepy, luckily he enjoyed the lesson and participated in all activities especially story telling time. He was so anxious to reach the story book from the teacher and gugugaga throughout the story telling session.





Shopping time for mummy, poor Joshua boy, has to accompany mummy to do Chinese New Year shopping. He was really tired and fall to sleep in his stroller. Daddy said have lunch in Sushi King while Joshua fall asleep. Joshua woke up an hour later because there was a baby girl sitting behind us crying loudly.



After lunch at Sushi King, Ikano Power Centre, we went to IKEA to buy a bib for him @ RM19.90 (2 pcs) and a set of lunch box and cutlery BABISIL) @ RM39.90. To prepare him for solid food during Chinese New Year.
