长大


.
Both of us were changing in the room one morning...
.
You : Mummy 穿什么bra?
Me : Mummy 穿purple colour 的bra lo....
You : (patting on chest) Leng Leng 都没有穿bra...Leng Leng 都没有穿bra...
Me : (thinking how to answer you) .....
You : Leng Leng 长大才穿bra...ahh!!! yes!!! good girl girl!!!
.

.
Wow, I was stunned with your answer for a moment. Yesterday, you was just a small baby who like to be cuddled in my arm. Today, my little girl has growth up so much, to an extent where she knows how to use 长大, and waiting the day of '长大' anxiously.
.
Girl, you're growing up too fast, I want to capture every moment of you, to note down every word you say, every motion you do, every single thing that you've learned, but mummy's just not fast enough than you.


.
I know, one day, you'll spread your wings and fly away. So for now, when you are still 100% mine, let mummy own you for every minute, every second :)

25 months 3 weeks


.
Daddy has been complaining you eating too much, and requested to cut down your daily meals to half for a week, for the sake of your little tummy, which has been working very very hard to digest all the foods you eat.
.
@ 25 months 3 weeks, you weighted 15kg.
.
Benchmarking the ideal weight for baby @ 26 months. hmm....AhemAhem (daddy's going to scold mummy when he sees this)
.
.
You drink 4 times of milks and 3 main courses in a day.
.
Morning milk @ 8.30am - 8-8.5oz
Afternoon milk @ 12.30pm - 8-8.5oz
Evening milk @ 5.30pm - 7-7.5oz
Night milk @ 8.30pm - 6-6.5oz
.
Snack time @ school @ 11am - choice of bread, biscuits, noodle, scramble egg, spaghetti
Afternoon meal @ 3.30pm - choice of porridge or rice
Night meal @ 7.30pm - choice of porridge of rice
.
Well, how much you can eat? For rice, you can finish the portion of 'small rice' and for noodle, says WANTAN mee, you can finish half of the plate of the normal portion. For porridge, you are eating double of the portion compared the portion when you was 1.5 years old.
.
Not forgetting that you are snacking in between of meal, from biscuit, fruits, bread or anything you could find. You have foods in your hand ALL THE TIME. (maybe this is the reason that daddy thinks that you are eating too much). Seriously, are you eating too much?? For me, I'm happy to see you finish the milk, the foods that I gave it to you :)

Floating


.
Tiffy can float all by herself with the assistance of armfloat, without us holding her in the adult pool. She finally got the skill how to make used of the floaties to make her not sinking into the water. She knows, kick her legs and move her hands, she can float (she shows it to me at night when I asked her how to swim). Yet, she will swallows the water once a while when she's too excited, shouting with her mouth open widely. Daddy taught her how to hold her breath under the water and then blow bubbles in the water. Definitely, she needs time and more practice:)
.
PS. The floaties Tiffy's using is meant for baby up to 24 months, I wondered if it can support her weight?

Samseng DiDi - pull to stand


.
Cayden can now pull himself to a standing position. He can do it perfectly on the bed, from crawling, pulling himself to sitting and then standing by holding the bed head, he can do it very fast. Sometimes, when pillows or blanket block his way, he wont bother, he will climb across the pile of pillows and blanket, and reach wherever he wishes to go. This is why he's rewarded with the nick 'SAMSENG', by his babysitter. Yes, Cayden's very much 'COW' than his sister at the same age, perhaps this is the nature of BOY.

Tiffy said : (pointing at the trees) so many coconut trees...
.
.
.
Yes, so many coconut trees...


Lately, She uses 'MANY' frequently...

Tiffy said : (on the road) so many cars...

Tiffy said : (wanting to eat biscuits when I disagree to let her eat) Dont take many many har...take two only....

PS. Daddy, this is THE EVENING, which you promised her that you'll be home to eat dinner and bring Tiffy to office and then you did not turn up due to some last minute appointment, I brought her for a swim at last when I know you are not coming home and try my best to explain to her why you are not able to come home.
.. .
Before she sleeps, she still remember that you want to bring her to office, she told me this, ''Daddy要带Leng Leng去哪里?......去哪里?.....去office!!! Yes...good girl girl''. Yes, she said this statement all by herself. Feel guilty?? It's ok, I told her daddy need to work hard to earn money, then daddy can buy cake cake for Leng Leng. So, she's expecting her cake ya:)

Self feeding

I can self feeding, mummy always let me do it when we are having meal outside. But every meal at home, mummy will feed me. I know, she doesnt want me to mess up the place. Sometimes, mummy'll get very angry when I didnt eat properly, so one day, she told me these....
.
Mummy said : She doesnt want to feed me already....
.
Mummy said : I'm big girl girl, must eat myself...
.
Mummy said : I'll going to eat on my own for half of the bowl of porridge and then she's going to feed me the other half.
.
Mummy said : She's going to praise me good girl girl if I can eat properly..
..
Mummy said : I'm going to enjoy eating on my own and she does not need to force me to finish the meal.
.
Mummy said : She's going to save half of the time for feeding me everyday and her patience will not be challenged.
.
So, here it starts...
.
Meal of the day : Porridge with broccoli, potato and onion, Chicken.
.
Start time : 3.25pm
.
End time : 3.50pm (approx)
.
People : A happy mummy and a satisfied daughter
.
.






.
PS. Tiffy, you do not refuse to eat her proper meals, just that you like to challenge mummy by turning here and there when mummy's feeding you and spitting out the chunk of vege or meat in the porridge. By this method, you eat everything in it, big chunk or small chunk of vege or meat, keep it up girl!!!

Pardon me please, this is my favourite facial expression lately.

Sit in a babychair

Mummy has been waiting for this day so eagerly, the day you can sit in the baby chair while we are having breakfast, lunch or dinner. You do not like to sit in the stroller, maybe it's the height, you cant see our faces on the dining table, or maybe you would prefer to join in the fun with us.
.
This is the first time mummy's enjoying breakfast happily and freely outside, without having one hand to carry you, another hand to feed Tiffy and also eating my breakfast.
.
.
You just sit quietly in the bay chair, eating and munching on your biscuit.
.
.
Fussed once awhile when you dropped your biscuit or it finished.
.

.
Thanks for giving mummy such a peaceful moment :)

.
我爱阿嬷多一点

PS. Tiffy, this is the first time you have your very own bowl of shark fin which cost rm60/bowl, but you dont love it at all, what a waste!!! :)

No more yelling please...

Tiffy,
.
This is mummy's confession to you, sincerely I do not want to do that, I just dont know what to do.
.
I have been yelling at you everyday recently, and I beat you some days too. I really hate to do all these. I love you more than anything. But mummy get frustrated at some point when you dont do what I ask you to do or not to do, throw tantrum or argue with me about the mealtime, shower time or bedtime. I know, you are only 2 years old, I cant expect to have a 2 years old kid who act maturely. Well, I just hoping that when the misbehavior occurs, I can deal with it in a calm manner, but it's so hard for a mummy who is not soft-spoken at all...
.
Yes, yelling is not a productive way of getting you to listen, I suppose most of the time you only hear the yell, instead of what is being said, and got frightened. There must be ways to handle it, mummy must figure out this and stop yelling at you before you yell at me one day or yell at your little brother or anyone else.
.
These are the tips mummy got from internet:
  • Leave the room
  • Take time for yourself
  • Allow yourself some short-cuts
  • Sleep
  • Call a friend, or invite someone over
  • GIve your child a break

PS. full details - refer http://www.ehow.com/how_2180456_stop-yelling-child.html

Look at your cute and angel faces, mummy should stop the 'violence' action immediately!!

The colours that you bring
Stay with me while we grow older
And we will live each day in springtime
Cause loving you has made my life so beautiful
And everyday my life is filled loving you

.
miss you so much~~~
