Ayden’s First Meeting

I’m a full time SAHM/Mommy Blogger. A friend once asked me what SAHM means. If you don’t already know, SAHM is the acronym for Superbly Attractive Hot Mom. Yep, that’s me! *handing out plastic bags for you to puke into* SAHM is a job with NO SALARY. Blogging helps me earn some pocket money through advertorials. Some ad jobs come easy as in I can just do it at home without lifting my butt and woolah […]

When Mommy Is the Barber

Just like with Ethan, I cut Ayden’s hair too. I started cutting Ethan’s hair since he was 3 months onwards but with Ayden I started really early. I trimmed his hair shortly after fullmoon. I used the exact same yellow Bumboo chair that Ethan used for Ayden now. Ayden however, unlike Ethan, is more difficult to handle. Ethan will sit still and quietly let me cut his hair but Ayden is terrible! He refused to […]

Choosing the Right Book for Babies

When it comes to books for babies, remember this ONE rule – wipeable. I always get glossy wipe clean books for babies. The reason being they won’t easily tear or clump when soaked with baby’s saliva and at the end of the day we can easily wipe them clean and keep them away.  I have this old book of Ethan’s that is not a wipe clean book. It’s a touch and feel book so I […]

How To Fold The Korean Lamb Head Towel (Jjimjilbang)

 I tell you one thing. When I first saw a friend folding this towel for her baby, I have no idea that this is the famous lamb head towels that you see in Korean drama series. My idea of Korea is Psy’s Gangnam Style. That’s it. Only that. I’m not a K-pop fan or anything so you can understand my lack of intelligence in regards to that part of the world. But now I […]

Caterpillar Joke

Ayden has a hand-me-down friend, a caterpillar from big brother Ethan. They are not exactly the best buddies out there as the caterpillar doesn’t laugh at his jokes… And now we all know why :P

First encounter with a …

We were at my parent’s place. While relaxing under the shady mango tree, Ayden saw a furry creature. I’ll let Ayden tell you the rest of the story … “So I was sitting on Grandma’s lap when this huge thing came to me. It definitely did not look like any of Mommy’s relative. It has two long ears on its head and a very funny looking face. It walks funny too. It’s like as if […]

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; […]

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 […]

I was told that Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is ideal for facial and full body use for every age. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser My mother who is helping me with […]

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 […]

My unexpected Merdeka Baby!

Hello! I’ve been away unexpectedly as my baby decided to pop out 3 weeks earlier into this world. 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 […]
