Tiffy first casting

Mummy received a sms yesterday evening, stating ''Your daughter is shortlisted for Nespray commercial casting, the casting is on xxx and at xxx and blah blah blah.''
.
So, here we go, the special programme on this sunny Saturday morning. You are very excited, cant wait anymore to go out, not knowing where we are heading, what we are going to do.
.
When we reached the studio, there is only us. From the computer there, we saw some others kids photos which I guess it should be taken earlier. Oh no, those photos are nice. Mummy started to worry if you could even pose nicely to the camera.
.
The camerajie jie took some casual shots to warm you up a little bit. You are so shy at first, holding my hand tight as if I'm running away anytime. After a while, you seem a little bit better, grin and smile more....Alright, to bring up your mood, mummy started to used various ways to make you smile, make you laugh....Story telling first, 'Under the sea', 'In the jungle'...Who is very big?? Who is very fierce?? What is monkey doing?? Yaya, monkey is climbing up the tree, then how???.....And then, sing songs...If you happy and you know it, clap your hand.....It works so well, things are getting better. Got some nice shots of you. It's time to rest...wow, just feeling like a super star, heheheh :)
..
We continued with second scene, which you need to hold a mug and pretend drinking milk from it. Wow, a real glass mug!!!

Girl, you are supposed to hold the mug, not hug hug the mug oh!!!
Girl, drink water how??
Girl, please pretend drinking water from the mug...
.
Pretending drinking water?? I doubt you understand how to do it?? Alright, to make you drink, we used your own water bottle....Finally you did the pose of drinking water.....
.
Last scene, you need to do a pose with both hands raise up and say YEAH, just like a CHAMPION BABY!!! Wow, this is difficult. Tried to make you sing Twinkle twinkle little star with the action, failed!!! Tried to make you jump with both hands up, failed!!! When mummy was clueless how to make you do the pose, Kai kai YiYi suggested why not mummy hold your favourite biscuit high up as a bait to make you grab it with both hands up. Smart trick!!! Finally you did it too, eventhough not that prefect.
..
Your 'patience spam' have last more than 30 minutes and you started to show frustration, when the camera jiejie said, okie, 5 last shots....You have lost all your patience and started to cry....Alright alright, you have done a very good job :) They have got all the necessary shots as well.
.
The person in charge said, they will inform us as soon as possible if you are shortlisted.
..

.
Before we left, he reminded mummy not to trim your hair, not to let you slim down or gain any weight. Okok, try our best ya, not to let you put on any weight, I have no confident on this :)
.
For Tiffy's performance today, I give you 5 'GOOD's, for being well-behaved and cooperative baby. Mummy's sweetheart, you are good girl girl.

Feeding bottles

It's time to replace the feeding bottles for both Cayden and Tiffany. And Cayden should upgrage to 4 hole teat. In view that it may cause confusion on the bottles, I digged out the MAM feeding bottles which bought some times ago, thinking to let Tiffy to use it whereas Cayden will continue with Avent feeding bottles. Tiffy excited at first when she has new feeding bottles, after she tried it, she reluctant to drink milk from it. Then, I give it to Cayden, thinking that he maybe able to adapt to this new teat. Somehow, Cayden refuse to drink milk from it too. After a few attempt, he still refuse it.
I have no choice, but to replace Avent for both of them. Nowaday, kids are smart :)

Never refuse medicine

I thought kids normally will resist to take medicine, but Tiffy just love medicine so much. She takes medicine just like drinking water. She will feed herself with any kind of medicine I give it to her. Sometimes, she can even gargle the medicine in her mouth before she swallows it, so weird, dont the medicine taste bitter?? Anyway, this makes my job easier when she falls sick, at least I dont need to fight with her, force her to drink up the medicine.
.
Tiffy is down with cough and runny nose again, with lot of phlegm. So, she took the Mucosolvan before she goes to school this morning. Happily drink up the medicine, she wanted to drink the 'orange' medicine and 'strawberry' medicine which are meant for cough and flu as well. See!!! She thinks it's RIBENA....
.
.
.
.
Okie girl, we drink RIBENA later ya, when you back from school.

Tiffy : What is that?
Mummy : Traffic light lo....
Tiffy : mummy, drive 'boon boon' la...
Mummy : Cannot wo, it's red light
Tiffy : Harr??
Mummy : See!!! red light cannot go, all the cars have to stop. When it turns green light, we can go.
Tiffy : Oh!!! (sounds like she understands what I mean)
.
Since then, I teach Tiffy 'RED LIGHT CANNOT GO', 'GREEN LIGHT CAN GO'. She can remember it, but not everytime will get it correctly when I asked her.

Shapes and colours

This is Tiffy's 3rd colouring book. She hasnt mastered the skill of holding a crayon properly but is getting better. Previouly she was holding the crayon in her fist and now she can hold the crayon in a more proper way. She's now able to recornize some colours and most of the time, she ables to match the crayon and colour shows in the book.
.
Tiffy ables to match the blue and brown colous.
.
.
Tiffy ables to match blue and green but not orange.
.

.
Tiffy ables to match yellow and red and need assistance to find green colour crayon.
.
.
Tiffy loves colouring. She loves doing her kumon workbook. Besides colours, Tiffy ables to recognize some of the shapes too. She has no problem to recognize STAR, CIRCLE, TRIANGLE, OVAL. She loves to play the game of recognizing shapes in Iphone. The game is simple, she needs to choose the correct shape follow the instruction and after she answered it correctly, she'll be rewarded with a virtual sticker in the game. She's now learning more shapes, like rectangle, crescent, square, hexagon.



See how concentrate is she playing the game, can keep her occupied and entertained for a very long period :)

On the bed

I like to be put on the bed, as I could roll over from one end all the way to the other end and then flip over to play with my feet, taste the pillow and blanket, grab the remotes control or toys which put on the bed.
.
.
This is one of my favourite activity on the bed too!!! Put my head down and show off my buttock which rise high enough to let everybody see it....
.
.
Nowaday, I was put to sleep on my own, mummy said she doenst want to pat me or rock me to sleep anymore. So, I will need to roll roll roll, flip flip flip, making lot of noise until I'm really exhausted and falls asleep on my own. Well, I'm still a small baby, so sometimes I cant fall asleep and get really really restless, then I'll cry very loud until my mummy comeby to carry me. Shhh!!! this is my secret weapon when I need LOVE from mummy.

Bedtime story - In the jungle

.
It's early morning in the jungle and all the animal are awake.
Some animals are very big, and some are very, very small...
Elephant is very big, ant is very small
Some animals are fierce (WOAHHHH) and some are timid
Lion is fierce (WOAHHH)
Some animals are messy...(ee...ee) and others are clean
Hippo is messy, 新的 hippo is clean (this is how she diffentiate two different hippo in the book)
.
Leopard and tiger are relaxing in the sun.
Leopard's spots are black and shaped like circle.
Tiger and zebras' stripes are black too.
Monkey is climbing up the tree and parrot flies from tree to tree,
He has red, yellow and blue feather and a beak shaped like a triangle.
.
The afternoon sun is very hot.
Some of the animals go to the watering hole to get cold.
Elephant and baby are swimming.
Hippo is swimming. Flamingo is swimming.
Someone is hiding behind the rock.
It's frog.
.
It's dinner time and the hungry monkeys are looking for tasty bananas.
There are 5 bunches of bananas to find.
One, two, three, four, five (she will count it as 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10 if i dont stop her). Five bunches of bananas.
Monkey is eating banana. Elephant is eating banana.
.
After a busy day, the animals are tired.
The sun goes down and the moon and stars appear.
Yawn! it's time to go to sleep.
.
Elephant and babies said 'Good night'.
Crocodile said 'Good night'
Hippo and babies said 'Good night'
Lion said 'Good night'
Monkey said 'Good night'
Zebra said 'Good night'
Mouse said 'Good night'
Everybody is sleeping.
Good night, baby!!!
.
Bedtime story is a must before Tiffy goes to bed, she has 3 favourite story books, this is one of it. She can remembers pretty well of the content and she's definitely enjoy reading it. Those words and sentences highlighted in red are those words and sentences she will say it each time when I read her the story. Without the book, she can tell me this story too, of course need my help on and off. I've bought another 3 books in this push-pull-turn and lift book series, so that Tiffy will not need to repeat the same story everynight.
.
.
After the story, Tiffy loves her giraffe and crocodile hair clips so much, carrying them everywhere she goes. Sometimes, she will ask me 'mummy, zebra le?'. Well, I din buy zebra hair clip, and I'm not sure if this type of hair clip is still selling out there?

Where is FIFI?

.
This is the song Tiffy learned in the school today, contains some words and short sentences she learned before.
.
WHERE IS FIFI? WHERE IS FIFI?
IT'S NOT HERE, IT'S NOT HERE
RUN AND LOOK FOR FIFI, RUN AND LOOK FOR FIFI
WHERE IS FIFI? WHERE IS FIFI?
.
** FIFI is a cat in her workbook.
.
Everytime when teacher teaches her a new word, it will comes with certain action to make her remember the words better. IT REALLY WORKS!!! Tiffy can tell confidently those words and sentences she learned by now and most importantly, she understand what does those sentences mean.

猪头丙

I told Tiffy this for one time, she remembered forever and then repeat everyday when she recall of it.
.
Tiffy : Leng Leng 是 Lam Lam (her name in cantonese)
Tiffy : DiDi 是 Hei Hei (Cayden's name in cantonese)
Tiffy : Mummy 是 Leng Loi....
Tiffy : Daddy 是 猪头丙
.
Sometimes, she will say DiDi 是 嗬屎仔....(because when Cayden was on breastmilk, he poo poo many times a day, each day when I changed him, I will say ' DiDi is really 嗬屎仔', hence, here comes the nick for Cayden :)
.
Tiffy can remember our chinese zodiac too. She can remember clearly.
.
Tiffy : Daddy is woh woh (dog)
Tiffy : Mummy is woh woh (dog)
Tiffy : DiDi is cow cow.
Tiffy : Leng Leng is mouse mouse.
.
She's very good in imitating our daily conversation, she can even imitates my tones of talking, ie the tone when I get angry and ask her goes to bed, drink milk and sleep. Really need to pay attention to the words and tone and gestures in our daily conversations -_-'''
.
.
See!!! Who is the 猪头丙here?? :D

2 in 1


.
YES, Tiffy and Cayden are put in one stroller.
.
Tiffy's enjoying it, she loves the way her DiDi is so close to her and I guess Cayden is feeling comfortable too as he did not fuss when we put him down to the stroller.
.
Before this, most of the time when we go out, Tiffy will need to walk whereas Cayden will sit in the stroller. But it will only last for a while and Cayden will make a fuss, so, position changed, Tiffy will sit in the stroller and Cayden will be carried in baby carrier.
.
I'm not sure why, Cayden does not like to be put in the stroller since birth, he just cant lie still in the stroller without making fuss, luckily I did not invest to a stroller :p Now, he's getting better, he will sit for awhile or sometimes will doze off in the stroller.
.
Well, this old fragile 'KANCIL' is not strong enough to bear the weight of my two babies already, I need to find a better way to bring both of them out next time, maybe to get a 'PAJERO' for them :)

Tiffy : 我爱daddy, mummy, DiDi

What she says


.
Scene 1
.
Everyday when I pick up Tiffy in her school, teacher will tell her friends, 'This is Tiffany's mummy', so Tiffy learned that too...
Tiffy : (pointing at me) This is Tiffany's mummy
Mummy : Yes
Tiffy : Mummy, daddy's mummy le?
Mummy : Daddy's mummy is grandma lo....
Tiffy : ooohhhh.....grandma's mummy le??
Mummy : hmm....grandma's mummy go to holland sell salted egg already lo..
Tiffy : Har ???
Mummy : Grandma's mummy not here anymore....
Tiffy : oohhhh.....
.
(After a while)
.
Tiffy : mummy, car car's mummy le?
Mummy : -_-''''
.
Scene 2
.
During the last school holiday, Ke Shin and Ke Er were here. They'll address me as '小姨', and hubby as '小姨丈', so Tiffy learned that too. Once a while, she'll PURPOSELY call me as '小姨' and daddy as '小姨丈' and then laugh at our reactions.
.
Scene 3
.
Tiffy can sing many songs now. She can even create her own songs.
Tiffy : (singing) Twinkle twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are.....
Tiffy : (singing again with twinkle twinkle little star lyric) 公公 公公 公公 公.....
Tiffy : (singing again with the same lyric) Ahmah Ahmah Ahmah mah...
.
Scene 4
.
She sings these songs too.

Baa Baa black sheep
Happy birthday to you
ABC alphabet song
Are you sleeping?
Mary has a little lamb
Vital years song
.
Teacher taught her to sing this song, lyric is the same with Are You Sleeping?
Where is Tiffany? where is Tiffany?
Here I'm, Here I'm.
How are you today? How are you today?
Runaway runaway.
.
And then,
.
Tiffy change the name in the song to whoever and whatever she wants to sing.
.
Where is Cayden?
Where is daddy?
Where is mummy?
Where is Lucas?
Where is Toby?
Where is ah pooh?
Where is mickey mouse? and also
Where is 饼干? when she's looking for her biscuits.

Scene 5
.
Tiffy saw this diagram at our condo's lift and asked me this
.
Tiffy : mummy, 背Cayden DiDi 的啊?
.
I understand where she comes from, see this.
.
.
Isnt the shape is similar to Cayden's carrier? Tiffy has good imagination.
.
Scene 6
.
Tiffy saw a big advertisement board with a huge hornbil somewhere nearby our house and told me this.
.
Tiffy : mummy, BANANA....
.
.
Yes, the beak of a hornbil does looks like a banana...Again, my naive Tiffy's using her superb imagination.
.
Today when I reached Tiffy's school, she hasnt washed her hands and her face is full of chocolate spread. Teacher told me that Tify refused to washed hands and refused to put the water bottle and lunch box into her beg eventhough she has finished her snack long time ago. Teacher also told me that Tiffy played with her bread, she opened up the bread and play with the chocolate spread and then tear the bread into bit and pieces. This is not she normally behaved. I told Tiffy to say sorry to teacher for being so naught. On the way home, we have a chat in the car.
.
Mummy : Leng Leng, teacher told mummy Leng Leng very naught today, Leng Leng is so bad girl.
Tiffy : Mummy so bad girl
Mummy : Nope, Leng Leng is bad girl
Tiffy : mummy is bad girl
.
Is this the sign of entering stage of terible two? NO NO, I want a good girl girl :)

Birthday celebration @ school

Since 07.07.2010 falls on Wednesday, so I decided to have a small celebration for Tiffy 2nd birthday at school. After communicating with teachers, I reached her school at 10.45am to prepare the stuff. All the kids were so exciting, when I pressed the door bell, they all ran out and shouting, 'it's Tiffany's birthday today'.....
.

While waiting for all her friends to wash hands....
.
.
Waiting impatiently....
.


Wow!!! This is Tiffany's birthday cake, said her friends.



Let's sing Happy Birthday song together...
(the ice cream cake is melting, they took too long to wash hands and get ready :( )
.


Cake cutting with the help of teacher.



Delicious cake....



Kids love the cake, everyone requested for a 2nd piece of it. YES, simply because it's ice cream cake.



After that, Tiffy distributed the party packs and cupcakes to her friends.



Tiffy enjoyed her birthday celebration at school. Before the bedtime, she told me that she cut cake cake and eat cake cake in the school and asked me where is her party packs. I know she's happy :)
