Ayden’s Fullmoon

Just a little over a month ago, Ayden popped into our world earlier than expected. It was all good though and for that we are thankful. 

The 3 men in my life <3

On the 3rd day when I got discharged from the hospital, my mother came to stay with me for a month to help me out with my confinement needs and caring for Ayden.

After a delightful one month of my confinement, my Mom went back home to Malacca. I know she was torn and I know she’ll miss Ayden and us as much as we are missing her badly right now. Though we are coping fairly well without her now, we still miss her tremendously. It was nice to have company to talk too everyday and it had been forever since I last spent so much time with her. I love being pampered and spoilt by her again. I really miss her right now :(

Ayden seemed to know that my mom is heading back home too, hugging her so nicely there :)

On the day my mom went home, we went shopping for a gift for Ethan. He has learned a lot during the past one month, trying to adapt being the bigger brother. He is no longer the only child in the family and must learn to share our attention. He is also learning to be more independent. If last time he has already been brushing his own teeth and washing his own backside, now he is bathing, washing his hair and dressing up on his own. He ‘matures’ a lot in just one month though there are times when he does silly stuffs just to get our attention again.

Last weekend, we went back to my in-law’s place for a simple fullmoon prayers. 


Some of the items prepared by my MIL and SIL. 


My FIL gave Ayden a red packet for his fullmoon and one red packet to Ethan too for being the big brother. That caught me as a surprised as I did not expect it. Nevertheless, Ethan was happy and proud and strives to be an even better brother. 

Ethan and Ayden - brotherly love

Ethan loves Ayden very much. He is always pinching his little brother’s cheeks! >_< 

Ethan helps me look after Ayden when I’m in the kitchen or doing the laundry. He is no longer the pampered little boy. He is now the big brother and is doing his best to act like one. 

Oh yeah, while we were in my in-law’s place for Ayden’s fullmoon, my father who is in Malacca got himself busy distributing Ayamas Fullmoon set to relatives and friends. I wasn’t there so there is no picture of my Dad and the many Ayamas Fullmoon set but thank goodness my eldest sister managed to take this one picture, the very precious picture! Haha!

Buy 10 free 1. Buy 20 free 2. Buy 30 free 3 and it goes on and on and on… lol. Don’t mind me, I’m a little ‘sot plug’ these days. Sleep deprivation does that to the best of us, doesn’t it? 

Guess that’s about all for now. Last time it was senang kacang to update blog and go blog hopping frequently. These days, want to makan kacang also tak senang!

    Happy full moon to Ayden. Ethan is such a loving big bro and you are so blessed to have 3 handsome and wonderful men in your life :)

    So fast!!! One month already. And so good…no sibling rivalry. I guess it’s because Ethan’s big enough…and probably has been lonely too long being the only child all this while. Good boy, Ethan!

  • //
