Bye Bye 2009

Time flies, 2009 has came to the last day. It was just like yesterday I gave birth to Tiffy. How fast the little one has growth up reminded me that time doesnt wait, clock doesnt stop ticking.
.
If 2008 was a great year, I would say year 2009 even better. Well, I'm hoping every year would be better (who doesnt, right??!! :) ). Looking back to my year 2008 new year post, WOW~~~ almost all my resolutions have came true, Tiffy's growing up so well, I'm really proud with her progress. My first investment serviced apartment has rented out the 1st month I got the key, with a satisfying rental.
.
The most happiest and wonderful thing in year 2008, I have really got Tiffy a companion, and as I wish, he is a 'COWBOY', of course baby 'COWBOY' is still under construction and the joys will span across to year 2010. Hmm....I'm so looking forward for my new life with our 2 little ones under one hut!!!!!
.
Well, what's more in year 2008?? I quit my job after 2 months in AIG, and officially becomes a SAHM. Do I enjoy the life as a SAHM? Hmm, YES, I'M!!! What's better than having the chance to witness the growth of my little princess?? :)
.
It's time to list down my 2010 resolutions :
.
1. To give birth to baby Cayden of course is the most important task in 2010, I wish I could have a smooth delivery process and of course a healthy baby boy.
.
2. Tiffy's education. To spend more times with her and also scout for a centre for her.
.
3. To well-planned and have more healthier life. Taking good care of both babies, hubby and my daily meals and life.
.
4. To complete at least 3-4 papers in year 2010. (Foresee I can only start this after May2010)
.
5. To better control my bad temper and change my perspective of life.
.
6. To love, appreciate and cherish the moment with hubby. (with the two little ones, it's getting harder to have ''2 people world''.)
.
I could only think of these for now. Well, of course there are more and more to come and the list will never stop. For now, I wish all my family members and friends, have a great year ahead too, HAPPY NEW YEAR :D

Our both babies

I knew I'm going to regret if I did not jot all these down. This is indeed a precious moment, a precious contact between my both babies. I should have captured videos on it, I should have snap more pictures of my both babies. I'm not sure when baby Cayden comes out, Tiffy will still sayang her DiDi like now, I'm not sure when Tiffy grows up, she still remember this precious moment when her cute little actions, how she bang on mummy's tummy, how she kissed DiDi inside mummy's tummy, how she slept in 'monkey style', with her tummy on mummy's tummy, head on my chest with DiDi in between, how clumsy is she when her little hands cant fully hug her DiDi in mummy's tummy, how naive is Tiffy when she tried to feed DiDi with her toy ice-cream. Truly, I cherished what I'm having right now, I wanted to hold it tight so that all my precious will be with me always!!! The feeling is so good. I felt that I'm the world's most 'hangfook' woman!!! Less than a month, baby Cayden will be coming out....I'm going to miss this moment very much!!!!

My not-so-little little girl

Suddenly, I realized my little one has growth up so much...She can do many things and know many things now.
.
1. Tiffy can say up to 3-4 words in a sentence, for instance 'daddy take book book', 'mama make neng neng'.
.
2. Tiffy likes to sleep with me. She'll ask me to lie down at her side and request me to pat her buttock at night. If I sit up, she'll point and pat the pillow, say 'mama yieng yieng' (which means mama sleeps).
.
3. Tiffy likes to hug and kiss me. She'll hug me from my back or when I sit on the floor, she will walk towards me, give me a big hug and kiss me surprisingly.
.
4. Tiffy starts to be picky on the foods, she dislike porridge now, most of the time, she eats noodle or rice with soup.
.
5. Tiffy greet family members everytimes, ie she will call 'daddy' when she see daddy's home, she will call 'ah mah' when she see grandma in the morning.
.
.

.
There are too many things mark that Tiffy has growth up, yet she still my sweet heart, my little princess, I cant stop loving her more everyday.

Pooh pooh spoilt already!!!!

Not sure what's wrong with pooh pooh, he just cant function well sometimes, maybe mummy helped pooh pooh to put on the socks, so pooh pooh cant walk smoothly. The music stuck half way and pooh pooh cant step out, yet Tiffy still very happy with her 'spoilt pooh pooh' :D

Rubber band vs banana

Tiffy called rubber band as 'BANBANBAN' and banana as 'BABABAN', both sounds similar, yet we are able to differentiate which one she refers to. She knows BANBANBAN is to tie up her hair and BABABAN is something delicious, she can even recognize all sort of BABABAN picture, from animation, cartoon, real pictures, or real banana.
.
.



.
All the family members is influenced by Tiffy, now everyone called banana as BABABAN. It's really misleading :p

33 weeks

I'm already at my 33 weeks pregnancy. Time flies!!! Done the checkup this morning. Well, baby's growing bigger, almost 2.2kg by now. I supposed baby is more cramped inside my tummy now, as I can feel all his kicks are so hard and can feel his movement almost every hour. From the scan, doctor mentioned baby's having big nose and big head.
.
Anyway, my baby hasnt turn to the right position. He's actually at breech position where his head up to my right side and his bottom down. Hopefully he will turn to the right position by 36 weeks. I'm not prepared to have any c-section, so please baby, dont so playful, fast fast turn to the right position ya :)
.
For me, I feel more tired and heavy now. I cant walk fast, I cant do many houseworks at one time. My baby will give me warning by giving me feeling 'pain' around the tummy. Doctor mentioned that I need to slow down and rest more. With the tricky position of my baby, doctor also mentioned that I suppose to have backache if walking too much as the baby back is just towards my spine. Hmm....I hope baby will come out soon, but at the same time, I'm enjoying the moment when he is still inside my tummy. *dilemma'ing*

School holidays!!!!

It's school holidays again!!! The time I love the most!!! I believe Tiffy loves school holidays too....Simply because Rachel jie jie and Chloe jie jie will be here. For Tiffy, she's definitely delighted with the arrival of both jie jies, since she has someone to play with. Well, for me, of course I'm having 2 additional little helpers to assist me in taking care Tiffy and also helping me in some simple tasks.
.
In my 3rd trisemester pregnancy, with the big tummy, I felt so hard to squat down or even sit on the floor and then stand up again. However, little Tiffy's height really requires me to squat most of the time, ie helping her to put on the shoes, pants, washing her buttock and etc. The two little helpers just in time to be here to help me in all these. I sincerely appreciate that.
.
Now, I can go shopping, I can take my noon nap, I can surf net, I can do my study, I can complete my house chores without pausing it for few rounds. My two little helpers, Xiao Yi love you both...muakkkk~!~!~!~!

13...14...15...16 牙人

.
I discovered many white bumps on Tiffy's gum, really really MANY white bumps, 1...2....3...4...5...6...7...8...included those new teeth which not fully grown. At first, I thought it was ulcer on her gum, by assuming she had too much heaty food and drink not enough water during Penang trip. After checking properly, all of the white bumps are actually teeth which starting to sprout.
.
By now, she's having all her teeth growing out in the right timing and make it to 18 teeth in total, which include the new 4 cuspid and 4 first molar. Luckily, Tiffy was not cranky during this peak teething period. But she likes to bite her own clothes, sometimes she even bites my clothes. I guess it could ease the discomfort causing by teething. Sometimes, before she falls asleep, she will bite her gum until bleeding and it's hard to pat her to sleep. Hopefully, it is just a transition period, after all the teeth fully grown, I hope Tiffy will back to normal.

Penang Trip - Part2

Enjoying good time with daddy, mummy and didi.

Penang Trip

To be frank, after I got married, I never been to hubby's hometown during CNY. And I knew that 2010 will be the same, as I'll be in confinement month in 2010's CNY. So, hubby decided to go back to Penang to visit relatives cum business trip before my due date. It was a long trip, we'll be back to Penang from 24.11.09 to 28.11.09, to have sufficient time for hubby to visit his customers and also sufficient time to visit the relatives, of course to taste the delicious foods in Penang.
.

For the first few days, Tiffy and I stayed in the hotel during daytime while hubby went out for work. Hmm...I enjoyed the time spent with Tiffy in hotel. Woke up early as usual, taking healthy breakfast, brought Tiffy to play at the playground, watching people enjoying goodtime at swimming pool, take a walk and sit at the beach, go back hotel to take noon nap, and then lunch, watching Astro, surfing internet while Tiffy having her own sweet time drawing, running, playing in the room. In the evening and night, we visited to relatives' house.
.
Well, Tiffy behaved herself all the time, she did not cry or fuss, she smiles most of the time, she walks in and out of the house, playing with the children there, she called out loud grandpa, grandma, daddy and mama when we asked her to do so. She's such a lovely girl.

Tooth #12 - another molar

.
Wow!!! Besides the 2 first molars and 1 cuspid at the left is sprouting. Tiffy is having another molar at her upper jaw (right). So, all together she has 3 molars and 1 cuspid teeth on the way and make it to 12 teeth in total. I guess the other first molar at the bottom jaw of right hand side will pop up very soon. **rolling eyes**

Potty training

I'll poo poo every morning. But not in a potty, I'll poo poo in my diaper. Sometimes, I'll tell daddy or mummy 'mmh mmh', 'mmh mmh' when I feel like poo poo. Then, they will remove my pant and let me sit on potty. I dunno why, eveytimes when I sit on potty, my feeling of poo poo will runaway....
.
.
*yawn, yawn*!! I get bored sitting on potty for too long...

.
Daddy ahhh!!! I dun wan to poo poo already, can you please lift me up?!!
.
.
Potty training still failed. Tiffy just cant understand how to make her business in the potty. Sometimes, when she said 'mmh mmh', 'mmh mmh' and when we thought she wants to poo poo, she's actually already poo poo in the diaper and wanted us to clean it. Aiks!!! When my little one can be diaper-free??

Collection of shoes

These are Tiffy's shoes since birth....
.




.
My mum always complaint that I bought too many shoes for Tiffy which I find it's so unreasonable and I have explained to her 8000 times, but it's abit hard to get her understand the facts.
.
The fact is baby feet grow quickly during the first years, perhaps going through 3 or 4 sizes. Every 2 months, when I measured Tiffy's feet, it grow longer and bigger. And because baby feet exert a lot of energy, especially when standing and balancing. So, it can sweat twice the amount of adult feet. Due to this, of course I need to get another pair of shoes for replacement at one time.
.
Well, considering the important point of choosing and selecting the shoes size, where we should ensure there is ½" extra between the big toe and the end of the shoe. So, Tiffy's shoes can only last for 2-3 months the max before she couldnt fit into it.
.
Some may suggest, why not you buy 1-2 size bigger so that it could last longer....Aiks!! please la....How could baby walk properly in such a big shoes le? Be more reasonable and considerate, okie?!
.
So, mum...you understand why I buy shoes to Tiffy so frequently?

Flash card - part2

Our little girl has grown up so much, she can interpretes very well what we're saying. Sometimes, when I told hubby what she had done today, ie Tiffy fell down today and knocked her head on the floor, she'll point at her head as if telling daddy this is where she knocked it. Or when I told Tiffy, 'go get mummy 2 pieces of tissues', she'll do exactly what I told her, sometimes, she'll look at my facial expression to check if she's doing something right.

.

Although our little one unable to express what she wants clearly, but I'm vey sure, she pays attention to our conversation and can understand most of the content very well. Just like how she understand the name of the pictures I taught her, just that she cant pronounce it clearly.

.

Flash card - part1

I have been showing Tiffy alot of flash cards since months ago. Her progress is satisfying, she can memorize many words, she can recognize many pictures, some of them she could pronounce it correctly, some of them she pronounces it blurry, but as her mummy, I can understand what she's saying.
.

video

.

I used to use the GD's flash card method to teach her reading, but personally, I felt that it's not as effective as what I expect, maybe I'm not patient enough to see the result. So, I developed my own teaching method by pasting the flash card on the wall, teach Tiffy to read it 3 times in a day. The next day, Tiffy will remove the flash card by herself if she's able to recognize the pictures. Normally I will mix some new words with some old words in it, so that she wont forget what she has learned. By now, Tiffy's able to recognize almost 70 new words in less than 1.5 months. I'm happy with her progress.

Companions

Tiffy loves to play with kids, especially Shannon jie jie or those neighbourhood jie jies...She'll shows her excitement by stepping her feet, keep shouting 'jie jie, jie jie' and laugh happily when jie jie comes to find her.
.
I always tell hubby that we are lucky enough to get Tiffy a companion so soon, otherwise she'll be very bored and lonely. Although we spent lot of times with her, but I guess kids are always 'click' with kids which adults are abit hard to tune into their channel. There were a few nights, Tiffy had sleep talk and actually she's calling 'jie jie'....It's funny to hear that, she must be '日有所思,夜有所梦' :)
.
See how happy is Tiffy when Shannon jie jie is around....she'll follow whatever and wherever Shannon do or go....
.
Riding giraffe alone is not fun enough....
.
Ya, it's more fun with Shannon jie jie....
.
.
Just like this!!! Share the joyous moment together~~ :D

Cuspid tooth


.
When I checked on Tiffy's gum today to see how's the progress of her first molars, I noticed that there is another white spot on her upper gum, just next to her molar. I think Tiffy's upper cuspid has emerged gradually. With her not fully grown first molars, Tiffy has total 11 teeth now.

Collection of hats

After tidied up Tiffy's wardrobe, I realized that Tiffy has grown up so much. There are so many unfit clothes, pants, hats, socks lying there, occupied most of the space in the wardrobe. It took me hours to categorized it, whether to donate it or to keep it for Cayden or to keep it for my future nieces.
.
These are the hats Tiffy used to put on last time.
.
.
Well, these are brand new yet unfit hats....

.
Same apply to all the hats here...I'm going to keep all these hats, dunno if when my future nieces come to this world, all these hats will be oudated or not. But, to ask me to donate it or give it away now. I'm so reluctant le...
.


There is another pile of hats which I'm going to donate it, most of them are brand new, either came in a gift set or came together with the clothes.
.
By donating and keeping up the hats, Tiffy has left with 3 cap/hats to be worn from now...
.
