Super Glue Tiffy

Tiffy has been showing sign of recognising familiar or stranger’s faces. The sign has been growing stronger when we went to Langkawi...
.
When grandpa wanted to carry little Tiffy from me by saying 'HUG HUG' and stretching his both hand towards Tiffy , Tiffy actually cling onto my t-shirt collar, stare at grandpa and then turn her head to the other side of my shoulder, comfortably laying on my chest. And if grandpa insist to carry her, she started crying!
.
But if I'm out of Tiffy's sight, this sympton will be reduced...However, as soon as she see my face...she will start her 'damage radio tape sypmton' by non stop repeating 'ngmm ngmm ngmm ngmm ngmm...' until I walk closer to her, she will stretch out her both hands wanting me to carry her....
.
After a few days stay together with grandpa and grandma...Tiffy is showing improvement...she doesnt ' ngmm ngmm ngmm' or cry when grandpa carry her....instead...she played happily at grandma's house...
.







.
None of my family members can resist Tiffy's smile and laughter face....neither can I....and she must be knowing this is her secret weapon....a simple tickle or name calling would be able to make her laugh out loud...

Peek-A-Boo - from a different angle

After Tiffy learned to sit without support...she enjoys sitting most of the time...
.
That's include the happy time when she played peek-a-boo with daddy.
.
.


.
Tiffy was left in her baby cot with some of her toys, when daddy just came back from office. From the angle she sat in her baby cot, she could see daddy is coming in the room....
.
Game started...Daddy hide below the baby cot's bumper where it is out of Tiffy's sight, and suddenly, pop up his head by calling ' AH B', Tiffy laugh happily...then, daddy hide again...Tiffy was waiting when will daddy pop up his head again? and then, here goes daddy's head and calling 'Ah B', Tiffy was laughing happily, showing her 2 tiny teeth.

Communicating with Socks

In order to build up the friendship, I suppose Tiffy knows the theory and importance of communication.
.
She was spending an evening talking to Socks with her baby language...I have no idea what she is trying to say....but, she does look like communicating with Socks seriously....with her baby tones and language....
.
video

When she is concentrating to play her toys on bed...I earn a little time to do my own stuff....Others time, either she is fussing to get my attention or it's feeding, changing time...

All is mummy's fault

Tiffy has been coughing and flu since last Sunday....
.
Why it happens?? must be the bad weather....yaya...weather is hot....sweating even we switched on the aircond and adjust to the lowest 16 degree celcius with the fastest fan speed (was once thinking whether the aircon rosak already, celaka!!!)
.
And the most celaka thing is silly me still bringing Tiffy out for two days during weekend continuously....Saturday afternoon, we went to PJ to visit some bridal shops....in and out and in and out...hot and cold and hot and cold....and then, on Sunday, we brought Tiffy to had lunch with my ex-colleagues at Solaris Mont Kiara....under the hot sun, we were choosing which restaurant...Aiks...what an inconsiderate mummy!! This is not the end of weekend plan...At nite, we brought Tiffy for a seafood dinner which treated by Fai uncle....when the dinner ended, we reached home at 11pm....pity Tiffy :'(

''knock knock'' and ''sit sit''

Tiffy’s development has been developing in a very fast pace lately… She is very energetic and active despite of her prolonged sickness since Sunday...
.
Here goes the 1st development :
.
When we put her sitting on the lap facing us, and say 'knock knock'...at the same time, lean forward the head......she will bang forward her head to knock with your head.... If we stop playing this knock knock game with her....and yet she is still enjoying it...she will non stop bang forward her head towards your chest....
.
2nd development :
.
Tiffy can sit WITHOUT support....yet she will still fall aside or behind if she too concentrates on her toys...
.
.




.
At last, she can see the world from a different angle, don't need to lie down all the times and try very hard to lift up herself by 45 degree.....

My permanent boss

I have a life time job which i have the possibility of 'zero' to fry my 'boss' cuttlefish....
.
My boss is a cool lady...
She doesnt need to speak up
She doesnt need to order me to complete my task
She doesnt set deadline for me
She has endless demands and request eveyday
She set the SLA of 5 minutes on each request
I have to on standby mode 24/7 a day
I do not entitle for any annual leaves, any public holiday
I do not have any salary review or performance appraisal
.
My job responsibilities are very wide....
.
I need to feed her
I need to clothes her
I need lull her to bed
I need to play with her
I need to carry her and walkaround the house
I need to jump on her every demands
I need to attend to her every cry
.
Hmm...and the most important skill required n this job is to say 'YES BOSS!!!'....
.
This is my little boss....

.
Having her as my permanent boss...I don't get '$$' paid, instead, she will compensate me with 'a big smile' when she is happy, or a 'big cry' when she fuss....besides all these, sometimes, I do get some 'small business' or 'big business' as my allowance and bonus...BUT, I enjoy 'working' with her...my lovely little boss....

Porridge - part2

After Tiffy starting her 1 portion of porridge a day, I tried out a few recipe....

ABC Baby Porridge

Ingredient:
1 onion
1 potato
1/2 carrot
some anchovies

Instruction:
1) Peel carrot, potato, onion and shredder it.
2) Boil the anchovies in water
3) Drain the anchovies and keep the soup.
2) Wash rice and add the soup
4) Put all into slow cooker and cook for 3-5 hours


According to mum-in-law, onion could cure Tiffy's sensitive nose...At first, i thought the onion would cause the porridge spicy, but the taste and smell are nice..Tiffy loves it so much!!!

Dry scallop broccoli porridge

Ingredient:
2 pieces of dry scallop

2 small stem of broccoli
1 onion
1 potato

Instruction:
1) Peel potato, onion and shredder it.
2) Boil the broccoli in hot water with salt (mum-in-law said there will be some small tiny 'ulat' hide inside the broccoli, emphasize must boil in hot water 1st)
3) Shredder the cooked broccoli.
2) Wash rice, add water and dry scallop
4) Put all into slow cooker and cook for 3-5 hours


I did not feed Tiffy with the scallop, worry that she cant chew and swallow it...However, the porridge had very sweet refreshing taste of broccoli and scallop… Tiffy loves it...me too enjoy eating it :p

THUMBS UP for Tiffy....she has been very good girl....did not fuss, did not cry....all the while....she's enjoying her rattles...enjoying the mineral water i gave her through the straw (she does know how to suck)...enjoy playing with the bridal shop's boss's 7 months old son....enjoying the rice cracker given by the lady boss....enjoy seeing people discussing the package...enjoy seeing aunties dress up on wedding gowns and evening gowns...enjoying the boss carrying her walking around the shop....
.








When we were home...it's already 8 pm at night..she missed the time for porridge....after changing and feeding her with water...i put her on my bed...leave her with a dim light in the room...

I'm thinking to finish the porridge which cooked earlier....sitting beside her...I am eating the porridge...she is looking at me....looking at me eating her porridge...AIYO....she must be curious why today no porridge feed and why i am eating her porridge....endup, i feed her the porridge on the bed....and she could really finish the bowl of porridge....

This is my girl...my steady little girl...Mummy loves you..muakkk~~

喜新忘旧

I was busy cleaning up the room one morning while Tiffy was fussing to get my attention...
.
I gave her the lollipop teether she used to bite....she THROW it away....ok, nevermind...I gave her the 'safety pin' shape teether, she THROW it away AGAIN...then I gave her the rattle she used to play with...she also THROW it away...AIKS!!! I declared GIVE UP...and put the basket with all her toys in front of her to let her choose....
.
.At first, she took up the cow cow stick....look at it, move left and right, turn up and down for only 1 minute....
.

.
And then, she realized another elephant hand wrist lying on the couch, she tried to reach it...
.
.
Took it up and play for less than 2 minutes...
.
.
ANOTHER new toy captured her sight....the BASKET I used to store her toys....


.
Tried very hard to reach it....


Finally, she managed to lift up the basket....
.
.
Turn and turn and turn....she just loves the basket so much....without further fussing, she enjoy her times playing with it...
.
.
Auntie told me the other day when I pick up Tiffy at her house, Tiffy was being very fussy and naughty, she throw away all the 'old' toys...and fuss for any 'new' toys capture her eyesight...
