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

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.
.

.

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...

Daily meals

MIL has taken over my job of preparing Tiffy's daily meals since I pregnant. Beside having the normal porridge with broccoli, cauliflower, potato, carrot, pumpkin, capsicum, green beans, spinach. Recently, MIL created some new taste for Tiffy, which I think it's very good for health. The first one is 红枣鸡肉粥 (red dates with mince chicken porridge), second one is 枸杞子干贝粥 (wolfberries with dry scallop porridge). Tiffy likes these two new taste very much, she even ask for more....
.
Well, on top of the main course (porridge), MIL will prepare fish for Tiffy everyday too, choice of steamed pomfret (白鲳鱼), threadfin (马友鱼) or cod fish (蒸鳕鱼). Nowaday, when we tell Tiffy it's dinner time, she will keep saying 'ish ish ish' and looking for her fish on the dining table. Tiffy's growing up so well, MIL has really contributed lot of efforts :)

Fish...all the time

Before Tiffy came to this world, Jeffrey always request me to draw him dinosaurs, either on the paper or using my pda phone, one after one dino, he always has endless request of the dino drawing. Until I feel so frustrated and use the pen to draw dino on his hand, so that whenever he asked me to draw again, I'll show him his hand with the dino drawing.

.

Today, Tiffy is having the same symptom as Jeffrey, she requests me to draw her fish all the time. Whenever she pick up a piece of paper or holding my handphone, she'll keep saying 'ISH', 'ISH'....One after one fish, she has endless request too....Aiseh!!! Please dont doubt the power of prenatal education!!!
