Boon Boon car

Tiffy will ask me this same question whenever she thought of her 'boon boon'
.
Tiffy : (fussing) mummy, Leng Leng's boon boon le??
.
Mummy : Jie Jie put back already oh...
.
Tiffy : Oh...Jie Jie put back Leng Leng's boon boon ar...
.
Mummy : Ya (happy that she understands what I said)
.
The next minute
.
Tiffy : (fussing again) Leng Leng's boon boon le....
.
Mummy : Leng Leng, mummy told you already...
.
Tiffy : oh, Jie Jie put back Leng Leng's boon boon arrr....
.
Usually, when I brought Tiffy out to Ikano or One U, I will rent a buggy for her. She likes to 'drive' the buggy and normally will sit obediently in it. However, there is side effect it, she's now assuming she knows how to drive, she will request us to put her on the driver's seat and tell us she wants to 'boon boon'.
.
Same goes to this, requesting to sit on this when she's taking her lunch and tea.
.
.




.
Wave bye bye to me somemore as if she really wants to go out.

1st swimming experience

This was my first swimming experience @ Armanee. And this is my first swimming trunk, a blue stripes trunk.
.
.
I look steady and well-prepared to dive into the pool....
.
,
However, I chickened-out the minute mummy put me into the pool, not even dare to open my eyes and then cried out loud. Well, I'm still a small cowboy, who only 2 months 17 days old :)

Breastmilk

I have decided to stop expressing milk gradually. Well, no doubt this is a really really selfish decision. As a mum, I should have give the best to my children. Hmm...I can give myself so many excuses why I should stop expressing milk.
.
1. Time - During weekday, it's still ok. But during weekend when Cayden is with me, I hardly find time to express milk. I hardly have chance to breastfeed him too, Tiffy behaved abnormally naughty when Cayden is back, so I gotta handle both kids at the same time if hubby is not around
.
2. Travel - I'm going to UK in April, if I'm still breastfeeding, I gotta bring along the breastpump and find time to express milk during my trip. Dont forget about the pain if my breast engorge, it really kills me!!!
.
3. Cayden's babysitter has been feeding Cayden with those thaw milk which > 24 hours defrost. I'm not sure if she dont understand what I told her or maybe she's kinda stubborn, she defrost all the frozen milk which I brought to her house everyweek at one go. This has been happening until hubby discovered it last week *fainted*. (I'm so angry with her at that moment)
.
4. Engorged breast - To maintain the milk supply, I express milk every 3 hours when Cayden is not with me. When I'm busy or no time to do that, the full and engorged breast can drive me crazy, and I have had 3 times of fever because of not able to express out all the milk.
.
I'm slowly reducing the frequency from 6 times to 3 times a day, and then 2 times and 1 time, hopefully, the milk supply will dry off before mid of April. Believe me, I'm heavy-hearted to stop breastfeeding, the mix feeling is complicated. In one hand, I wish to continue breastfeed, in another hand, I wish to stop it....aiks!!! one needle dont have 2 sharp end, I'm sorry baby.....
.
I have stored approximately 500 oz of frozen milk, should be able to last for 2 weeks before transit Cayden to formula. Hopefully it will not cause another problem when Cayden is on formula.

Phone phone

When the phone's ringing, this is what I do.....
.
Run fast fast to pick up the call....and then run fast fast to pass the phone to mummy...
.
.
But, sometimes I would prefer to pick up the call myself....
.
.
Normally, I will answer by saying, 'elo, 啊, 做么, ok, 啊, bye bye....' wihtout bothering who is on the line or what's the person on the line saying....
.

.
If you are the one who is on the line, and if you hear some 'dik dik' sound, means I'm doing the below action...
.

.
I can communicate very well thru the phone, I love video call with grandma, grandpa, jiu jiu and kai kai YiYi. Everyday, I will receive phone calls from grandma or grandpa, requesting me to talk to them, and to say '我爱嬷嬷', '我爱公公' becomes a compulsory statement.

Cheeky baby

Cayden's nanny told me that Cayden likes people talk to him and always can give a responsive smile. When I brought him back last weekend, spent my time talking to him, playing with him, it's true, Cayden smiles alot. He likes people paying attention to him and does not like to be alone. He's able t express his pleasure through smiles and even laughter. He would coos and aahs when people talk to him, so cute :)
