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; […]

Baby and Pacifier

Ethan disliked pacifier when he was younger but gradually turned to it when his mouth started to ‘itch’ when he was about 2 months old. Ayden is similar and dislikes pacifier too but ended up crying for milk once too often just to suckle on something. We can’t keep feeding him milk just so he can suck so my Mom tried giving him the pacifier… Haha! It didn’t help… I guess no pacifier for the […]

Sometimes We Forget

Since the arrival of Ayden, I am reminded of everyday little things that we are so used to that we took them for granted. One such example is switching on the lights when the little one is sleeping. We are so used to turn on the lights in the middle of the night to check on Ethan (though he hates it when he was younger but got used to it as he grows older) that […]

Toe Print Caterpillar

15th September 2013 marked the first time my boys did art together. They did toe print caterpillar. Well, the big brother did most of the work but still.. :P Ethan painted a leaf. Stamped in onto a piece of paper.  Then he painted his toes.  And stamped them onto one of the leaves.  He drew legs and all and woke the little brother up.  Painted Ayden’s tiny toes. Ayden was pretty ticklish and kept pulling […]

From Arthur

We got a surprise package from Pos Laju the other day. It came all the way from Sibu, Sarawak.  Beautifully handwritten card from Arthur. I did not inform Arthur that I’ve received his parcel as I wanted to surprise him with this blog post. However, he knew it earlier as he was diligently keeping track on the consignment via online! I don’t even know there is such a thing as tracking your package!! >_< As […]

Baby’s sleep companion

Hello! Baby Ayden is 10 days old today. All he does is sleep, poop and drink milk so it is still quite tolerable for me ^_^ A check-up with my gynae yesterday revealed a borderline high-blood pressure on me so I’m advised to sleep more and blog (and FB) less :( Heeding my gynae’s advice, I’m going to try spending less time on the PC and rest more. So here’s a quick comic to keep […]

Sunbath to treat jaundice

These days, it is very common to find newborns suffering from jaundice after birth. I was extremely happy when the paed gave clearance for us to go home 3 days after giving birth to my little one as he wasn’t showing any signs of jaundice. We were however, told to come back several days later to check for jaundice again. That got me nervous as I am afraid if he is required to be admitted […]

Our Cutie Pie

Haha PERASAN betul! Come on, which parents don’t think that their anak is CUTE? *blush* It has been 5 days since the arrival of my second son and I still can’t believe how similar he is to Ethan. Every single inch of him looks exactly the same as Ethan. Even their hair is similar up to their long sideburn! Anyway, I still don’t have much time to sit down and blog as I am supposed […]

See, my ‘watermelon’ is not supposed to be born yet… Just on Friday, 30 August 2013, I was at my sister’s place as my parents were in town for a wedding the next day. As usual, whenever my mother comes to town, she’ll cook up a storm for us. I was happily eating with every single family […]
