Teething toy vs fingers

Recently, Ayden always bite his lips and also suck his fingers. He’ll either bite or suck his lips. Am puzzled why is it so as Ethan doesn’t go through this stage. I posted the above picture on my FB and most of my friends said he might be teething with itchy gums except for one who cheekily said he’s like that because he wants my boobs (Joanna you know it’s YOU! :P) Anyway, we bought […]

Girls worry too much..

about what guys are thinking. Do you agree with me that girls tend to jump into conclusion at times? I know coz I’m one of them… More often than not, what those guys are thinking about are really not worthy of our worries… serious :P

My Breastfeeding Journey: DIY Nursing Top

I direct latch Ayden. Means I do not pump out my milk for bottle feeding. That also means I will need to nurse him whenever we go out. I used to run to the nearest nursing rooms whenever we are out shopping but that is too troublesome as sometimes the nursing rooms are all occupied.  One fine day I braved myself to nurse in public using my shawl to cover him but I find it […]

Our highlight of 2013

With a blink on an eye, 2013 is coming to an end. The highlight of 2013 for me has got to be conceiving, delivering and bringing up Ayden. Yes, the arrival of Ayden shocked many readers out there as I did not announce my pregnancy prior to it. I’ve never explain why I kept quiet through it all yet and today I will. After Ethan, Darling and I wanted to space several years before trying […]

Mattel Toys Giveaway

First they give us then we can pass to you laaaaa…  We heard Santa dropped his bag full of toys at Nuffnang office recently so we made our way there to see if there is any left for us :D I don’t know what happened but Ayden disappeared from my arms the moment I stepped into the office. The next thing I know, these pretty ladies are all over him! Attracting older girls already huh, […]

Silver Cross to the rescue!

“Mommy says she cant carry me too much already, her arms hurt so she pushes me around in the house in my chick-magnet four eight-wheeler red Silver Cross Pop stroller. But can somebody tell Mommy that chicks no longer find Mickey Mouse attractive? Girls love ‘bad’ guys these days mommy.. No more cute stuffs for me!” – Ayden Yeow Yeah so that’s what I do these days. At over 6kg, I can’t be carrying him all […]

My breastfeeding journey: Building up breast milk supply

I did it! I finally did it! Ayden is fully on breastmilk now! I know, I know, it’s a bit late but late is better than never, right?  My breastfeeding journey isn’t a smooth one. With Ethan I was determined to breast feed him but because I was ill-prepared and lacking in knowledge, I failed miserably. I only managed to mix feed up to 3 months old and then I dried up :'( I regretted […]

Baby Float Neck Ring

One thing I’ve noticed about Ayden since born is that he loves bath time. He loves kicking his legs in the bath tub. I don’t know if the fact that I swam every week during pregnancy has an effect in his love for water or not but it is such a joy to bathe him as he will giggle and kick and splash water all over. We were out shopping for some swimwears a couple […]

Intoxicated Boobs

OK maybe it’s not intoxicated but someone seriously spiked my boobs today. Just thought of using a killer title to get your attention. You know, trying my luck in a social experiment >_< Ayden woke up at 8.36am this morning. How do I know? Coz it is written there on this picture taken using BabyAgeCam app. Wah so happy I see him in such a good mood smiling so broadly. Quickly load pic onto Facebook […]

Bored Girlfriend Ignorant Boyfriend

A bit sexist today’s post. Lolol!  But that’s the fact isn’t it? Girls always merajuk but can the guys blame us when they themselves are so ignorant of our feelings? Think guys.. Think! Bluek :P

Bumbo Floor Seat

When I had Ethan 6 years ago, we bought this Bumbo floor seat for him. The reason is because with this floor seat, I can finally have my hands to myself again. Ethan was not able to sit up by himself yet then but with this seat, he can. As soon as a baby can support his own head, they can be seated in this Bumbo floor seat.  Look at Ethan sitting like a boss […]

Nightmares from bedtime stories

Before the arrival of Ayden, Ethan and I always read to each other before going to bed. Ethan makes sure that we only read cute animal stories, nothing with one animal eating the other. He says he will get nightmare if we did. That boy… tsk tsk. Now with Ayden around, I no longer read to Ethan but Ethan will read to Ayden. The same rules apply, no scary stories before bedtime because if we […]

Making a family holiday a success

Darling and I love travelling. Before Ethan came into our life, we traveled overseas at least once a year. With Ethan, we only traveled abroad when he touched 2. We learned then that travelling with a kid is totally different and a lot more tiring. We are lucky though that Ethan loves travelling as much as we do. He is able to sleep anywhere as long as we are around. Now I have Ayden. I […]

Travelling with baby in the car

You know how when you have a baby you tend to look at other people with babies too? We were at the car park in a shopping mall last weekend when I spotted several mothers coming out from the front passenger seat carrying their baby. That’s not quite safe isn’t it? The first thing we did when I was pregnant with Ethan years ago was to get a baby carrier that doubles as a car […]

How To Cut Baby’s Hair

Ayden was born with a lot of hair just like his korkor Ethan. And just like his big brother, we did not shave their hair off during their fullmoon celebration. For Ethan, we brought him to my hairdresser to get his very first hair cut and it was such a horrifying experience with him ‘eating’ much hair! That’s why with Ayden, I decided to cut his hair myself. Last week, while he was ‘milk drunk’ […]

Ayden @ 2 months old

Time flies. I’m 2 months old now and still a bit sleepy though I sleep a lot lesser these days. I go to bed at 9pm and wakes up at 7.30am together with kor kor Ethan. I have 2 to 3 night feeds in between. During the day I take short 20 min naps here n there and that drives Mommy crazy. She said she is unable to blog like that. I love to cry […]

Tommee Tippee ELECTRIC Breast Pump

Ayden is very lucky because shortly after he was born, he got his very first product sponsorship from Mothercare thanks to Nuffnang.  Ayden and the sponsored products from Mothercare: * Silver Cross Pop Stroller (RM899.00) * Tommee Tippee Electric Steam Sterilizer (RM399.00) * Tommee Tippee Electric Breast Pump (RM599.00) We’ve tried using all of the above 3 products and am loving them all. I especially LOVE the Tommee Tippee Electric Steam Sterilizer because believe it […]

Baby Boys Do Not Wear Pink

My sisters have all daughters while I have all boys. That doesn’t stop me from making Ethan and Ayden wear their hand-me-down clothes though. Come on, babies outgrow their clothes so quickly that there is no point buying too many new ones for them. Ethan did not have any problem wearing his cousin sisters’ hand-me-downs but I did buy several new ones for him last time to wear when we go kai-kai lah. But this […]

The Case of the Heavy Headed..

At 1 month old, this Ayden is already bored of lying down and is always trying to lift his head up but most of the time this Tweety Bird of mine can barely hold it up for more than a few seconds.. ^_^

Blood in Poo

We got a huge scare yesterday when during diaper change, I noticed blood in Ayden’s stool. I’ve never encounter this with Ethan so when it happens to Ayden it triggers a panic attack. Anything with blood will cause my heart to palpitate. The first thing I do was to call Darling that made him rush back home immediately. While waiting for Darling, I posted the above picture on a Mommy group in Facebook. Thank goodness […]

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. My mother and Ayden on the first day home […]

The Poo Story

You know when you have a baby boy, you tend to get ‘showered’ with his urine during diaper change time? You know what I do? I place a tissue on his penis so that each time he pee, he’ll wet the tissue instead of ‘shooting’ it at me. There, this way I know I won’t get ambushed each time I change his diaper :D Anyway, since we are talking about diaper change, here’s a comic […]

Milk Choke

It was 12 midnight, way pass Ethan’s usual bedtime at 9pm yet he is still unable to sleep. Strangely, Ayden was still wide awake too. We let Ethan play the piano a little bit more to tire him off before finally going into our respective rooms at 12.30midnight. During my confinement, I sleep with my mom and Ayden in a room while Darling remained with Ethan in another room. Ayden was still unable to sleep; […]
